Best Metal Songs

The Contenders: Page 23

441 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.

442 Satellite 15....The Final Frontier - Iron Maiden
443 Ruin - Lamb of God
444 Needled 24/7 - Children of Bodom
445 The Last Fight - Bullet for My Valentine

Yep! One of the best from 'Fever'. 'There's no silver-lining on the cloud that follows you, let it pour and soak you through'. Beautiful, emotive, talented, and aggressive

446 Estranged - Guns N' Roses
447 Crimson - Edge of Sanity

Some of the best 40 minutes in metal... All in one some. Incredible. EoS, although popular, are seriously underrated in the mainstream metal fanbase. Crimson II is brilliant too, as is Twilight, 156, The Masque, Lost... People need to listen to more Edge of Sanity. Go and listen to Crimson!

448 My Last Words - Megadeth

Got to say, that here are a lot of songs, that doesn't belong here. And sure Iron Maiden influenced maybe all here, but they aren't the top players in my eyes. They are my favourite band since I know Metal, just have to say, there are a lot of bands here, which actually kick their butts. I can't know every song here, for sure. But Linking Park? Korn? They even don't have the guys to play the songs from Metallica or Megadeth correctly. And Metallica's Master Of Puppets #1? A great song, no doubt! But not first, there are other Metallica songs that would fit there, but not this one. For me, My Last Words is just amazing it got all, difficult guitar riffs, best solo ever, if you listen closely and be able to follow every note. I personally think Call Of Ktulu should be first, cause this is Mustaine's and mostly I guess Cliff's work, but the solo, even if it was made by Kirk sounds pretty much Mustaineish. But I don't want to vote for it, cause its not clear who really vote everything in ...more

Place 278? What is wrong here? This is more metal than any song can ever get since now...
It should at least belong to TOP 10. But maybe it is a more musician view of the things because you must be musically intelligent to get this. It doesn't mean, that all of you got a bad taste of music. It is just about not getting something others maybe see different. And at least the amount of comment should speak for itself.

Big Song, great musicians. Just everything a song needs to be called a great metal song. Seems like that most aren't into metal here. Most want to get their favourite Song at the top and not the best metal song. It is a shame, that's what I am seeing it like.

He's distanced himself from his best album because of the satanism in Black Friday and others. That's Mustaine for you. Orion is the better instrumental. The production isn't as good as Ride's, but the rifforama in it is staggering.

449 Foolin' - Def Leppard

A classic metal rock song at least the best song from its band, but in my option the best song ever better tan pour some sugar on me. Foolin is best

This is one of definitely leppard's sexiest song

No way is it the best song from Lep. The entire High &Dry album is vastly superior and only one of those is on this list. Die Hard the Hunter is a great rocker too

450 When the Wild Wind Blows - Iron Maiden

This song tells the future of this world. The lyrics are awesome, great rhythm, great vocals from bruce as usual. I cannot explain much about this song cause the songs itself defines everything. Up the Irons

451 Mein Teil - Rammstein
452 Kashmir - Led Zeppelin

This song is not metal, it's a mixture of prog rock and hard rock - zxm

453 Dawn of Victory - Rhapsody
454 Third Eye - Tool

For me Tool were never better than on Aenima, and while they've made some great songs since then they've basically been putting out slightly different versions of that record since. This is the most interesting track off that album, with some of the best breakdowns they ever did. Plus Bill Hicks is on it. Peace. - alterbridgefan

It's their epic love letter to Bill Hicks. He awoke Tool's third eye - perception. They actually had the balls to take a comedian on tour with them. Tool are fantastic. Case closed.

455 Heavy Metal - Judas Priest
456 Let It Go - Def Leppard
457 Lethe - Dark Tranquility
458 Remember the Urge - Gazette
459 Blood - In This Moment
460 Tower of Babylon - Dragonrider

Awesome song, a very powerful power Metal song, perfect vocals and the solos are absolutely hypnotizing! - ahmedhiari
