Best Metal Songs

The Contenders: Page 21

401 Honor Thy Father - Dream Theater

Heaviest ever Dream Theater song. Awesome and a must-listen.

So they are heavy? Perhaps I've been too judgemental.

402 Round and Round - Ratt
403 Fuel - Metallica

Unfortunately for Metallica die-hards it isn't very good. It's not a sell out track, because they never did, but waxing lyrical about energy - motorbikes or metaphorically - still doesn't cut it. No Leaf Clover was far better. It was like Harvester of Sorrow, and though not as great, it was very good.

The bitter sell out rivalry is insane in the US. Music is sport there. It's crazy. I don't mind it. And they're allowed to do what they want, but people condemn them for not being thrash all the time. It's dreadful really.

From one of the greatest metal bands of all time there is no rest or moment of slowing down in this.

How is this #318?! This is one of my favourite Metallica songs they've done to this day!

404 Sweating Bullets - Megadeth

Yes, he deserves to be in the Hall of Fame. They just don't know where to put him.

405 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.

406 The Animal - Disturbed
407 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.

408 Capricorn (A Brand New Name) - 30 Seconds to Mars
409 Had Enough - Breaking Benjamin
410 City of the Dead - Outworld
411 18 and Life - Skid Row
412 Heaven Laid In Tears (Angels' Lament) - Draconian

Very beautiful and emotional song. It won't let you indifferent

413 Any Means Necessary - Hammerfall
414 Arise - Sepultura

Under a pale gray sky we stall arise...

I prefer Beneath the Remains rifforama, but I do like this album

415 Die for Metal - Manowar
416 Regular People - Pantera

Got to go. Would you like to email, or lea it at that?

417 Dyers Eve - Metallica
418 Let the Bodies Hit the Floor - Drowning Pool

How is drowning pool at 629 when bands like muse and lincoln park are high are you kidding these guys need to be in the top ten top 20 or even top 50 for crying out loud this list is so one sided it took a while before I even saw disturbed I can't believe this list.

It's called Bodies. Not Let the Bodies Hit the Floor.

419 Stockholm Syndrome - Muse

Yeah, I have on of theirs. They're not considered metal here, but they can very heavy. Dunno.
