Best Metal Songs

The Contenders: Page 18

341 Cum On Feel the Noize - Quiet Riot

Yeah, the lead singer passed on. It, and Twisted Sister are in my collection. Same with Wasp. Basically I'm a thrash fan.

QR isn't the best metal band but they at least should be in top 100. They were the first metal band to top the charts and they're 286. This is garbage that Trivium is ahead of one of the first metal bands.

I was a fan of the excellent Carlos Cavazzo, so he and Quiet Riot will only be forgotten when the fans shuffle off.

342 Fight Like This - Decyfer Down
343 Herzblut - Megaherz

The heck's wrong with you people? HIM!? LINKIN PARK!? This is a metal list! You can't just decide that because you enjoy certain riffs, and its a great song that its metal! Anyway... German metal song, awesome as hell.

Man, you know more than I do.

344 Hate Crew Deathroll - Children of Bodom
345 Bleed for Me - Black Label Society

He does. I have a live dvd and the crowd literally drank the pub dry. He shreds, but he spits so much you wouldn't wanna be next to him.

346 When Darkness Falls - Killswitch Engage
347 Kurenai - X Japan

Although X Japan aren't too well known outside of Japan, they are one of the best bands in my opinion. And if you took a bit of time to research this band you would find that, yes, X Japan is completely metal. Kurenai has a soft intro which transitions into a heavier and faster guitar riff with legendary drums and groovy bass. The singer is very good and fits the song nicely. The guitar solo is incredibly fast paced yet completely melodic, while the drum solo is well constructed and doesn't seem to have any gaps. All in all, a very good and very underrated metal song. Sorry for the long review, but I'm just trying to express my opinion.

Lol. Hey, that's what I've been doing the whole time. I could get shot for what I've said.

348 Constant Motion - Dream Theater

Ok. My friend is a big time fan. I did own Six Degrees of Turbulence but gave it to him as a gift as it has too much piano parts. If they bring heavy and progressive, like Glass Prison I like it. Train of Thought was more my favourite due to its heaviness.

This is a really good song and is one of my favorite songs by dream theater. It's very fast and has a good guitar riff and is one of their heaviest songs

349 Six Degrees of Inner Turbulence - Dream Theater
350 Daddy - Korn

Yes, that is true and sad. Korn are the only nu-metal band I even bother with because they bring it honestly and with integrity.

Definitely the darkest and most emotional song on the list it is based on the lead singer being molested as a child by a neihbor(NOT by the father like in the song) and no one beileving in him. At the end of the song he litteralu broke down in the studio and the band members didn't realize it until the song was over and he was still crying. Pediphiles scar people for life but they can't always ruin them. The suffering he felt aloud him to creat this master peice and make it big time with his band. But was it worth the pain...

351 Full Moon - Sonata Arctica
352 Only for the Weak - In Flames

How is this song not even in the top 100's?!

One of the only modern day musicians definitely worth at least top 50 - Diragaze

TOP 50 at least PLEASE god dammit

Can't you just do it yourself? Dunno how it all works. I have their double live dvd and the F Hostile tribute to Dimebag is a corker.

353 Collide - AxeWound

It has got the best guitar ever. Mind-blowing song. Loved the vocals too.

Yeah, Tuck doesn't sing much on this one, but it's an interesting side project.

354 In Waves - Trivium

This is the song that truly got me into metalcore, and Trivium in general. It definitely isn't one of the best of all time but it's a great song nevertheless.

It's the best song on one of their lesser releases.

Honestly a horrible excuse for a metal band, a shame to it's predecessors.

This band and this song is very good. I dunno why this band don't have much vote. You must listen this one, and I'm sure you will love this man...

355 Throes of Perdition - Trivium

This song is amazing. The opening stuck riff stuck with me for days the first time I heard this song. He Who Spawned the Furies should be up here as well.

Definition of Metal. What is wrong with you people?!

Sorry, I was too busy listening to Trivium's stunning Shogun album to pay attention. Oh, ok. I see. Yes, Stryper are incredible...

Yeah, this should be one the list, that's sure. - somekindofaguy

360 The Prisoner - Iron Maiden
