Best Metal Songs

The Contenders: Page 20

381 The Red & the Black - Blue Oyster Cult

Brute force, frenetic energy, supple instrumental virtuosity, great intensity and urgency from this metal classic from BOC's 1973 yranny & Mutation LP. -

You know it all my man. I thought I lived metal but I may have overrated myself. Lol.

382 Backbone - Gojira

dis is the best metal song how can y'all not like dis its beast -

I think that was the Nailbomb collaboration with Cavalera. Dunno.

383 Die Die My Darling - Metallica V 1 Comment
384 The Heretic Anthem - Slipknot


385 I Wanna Be Somebody - W.A.S.P.

This song really needs to be higher.

386 Home - Dream Theater

12 minutes of solid epicness. The best song and climax of one of the best metal albums ever. Several monster riffs, great lyrics and the best solos known to man. - dauemannen

387 Angel Witch - Angel Witch

Badass song it should be up there somewhere - CommanderChrome

388 The Sentinel - Judas Priest

Great 2nd best song by priest rob really sings good in this and has a great intro and solo I think it's so underrated on this list it shouldn't be at 239 it should be in the top ten

Yeah, I was more Maiden than Priest. Priest didn't tour here I think. Maiden tour everywhere.

Great lyrics. Still love to listen to this song. - Gulf5

If you haven't listened, you don't know. Best metal song ever. Go check it out.

389 Neue Regel - Queensryche

Way ahead of its time when the album " Rage for Order" came out in 1986. The whole album is a masterpiece, no deficits.
Oh well, Geoff Tate's voice - either love it or hate it, there's nothing in between. - Gulf5

The greatest metal band of all time, with the greatest singer of all time. A true masterpiece. Geoff Tate can sing like nobodies' business. Personally though, I like Eyes of a Stranger more.

I could not agree more. Rage For Order as a whole owns Operation Mindcrime - if that is even possible, which it is. So much more progressive than their recognised masterpiece.

Yeah, I'm a big fan. Lost interest after Promised Land when that great guitarist left.

392 Needled 24/7 - Children of Bodom
393 Angels Don't Kill - Children of Bodom
394 The Animal - Disturbed
395 Bloodmeat - Protest the Hero

Agreed. Love them, and only got into them because you showed me. Cheers.

Genre-defying metal from the technical beasts.

I love this post hardcore whatever you wanna' call em's. Great vocals, progressive as all get up, and a couldn't care less attitude. They are the reason Chiodis' Illuminaudio album is in my collection. I don't even know if they're metal, and that in itself is great.

397 Had Enough - Breaking Benjamin
398 Emerald Sword - Rhapsody
399 City of the Dead - Outworld
