441 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!

442 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.

443 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

444 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

445 Mein Teil - Rammstein
446 Dawn of Victory - Rhapsody
447 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.

448 Heavy Metal - Judas Priest
449 Let It Go - Def Leppard
450 Lethe - Dark Tranquility
451 Remember the Urge - Gazette
452 Blood - In This Moment
453 Tower of Babylon - Dragonrider

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

454 The Jester Race - In Flames

The best melodic death metal song from The best album ever made with amazing lyrics

You have said the best ever album ever made just as many times as I have.

455 Straight Out of Line - Godsmack
456 Whiskey Hangover - Godsmack
457 That Fire - Black Tide
