Best Metal Songs

The Contenders: Page 24

461 N.I.B - Black Sabbath
462 Somewhat Damaged - Nine Inch Nails

Brutal double-album opener, and Reznor wears his heart on his sleeve on this one. Ignore the immense thrash riffage at the end, just to drive the point home, big time!

463 Passenger - Deftones

Just because I like Maynard lulling me into a false sense of security, then belligerently yelling this inspirational, unforgettable chorus at me with all his might. This track alone is the only reason I bought 'White Pony'.

464 The Great Southern Trendkill - Pantera

It doesn't get more metal than this

465 Mr. Tinkertrain - Ozzy Osbourne
466 No Remorse - Metallica

Reason why this shouldn't be on?

467 Soothsayer - Buckethead
468 White Walls - Between the Buried and Me

This song sums up an album that was nearly flawless, and it does so with heavy, brutal and stunning riffs. One of my favorite songs ever and in my opinion the best metal song ever.

One of the best modern metal bands, full stop.

469 Roots Bloody Roots - Sepultura

This song is awesome! No other song makes me wanna bang my head as much as this one does - ryanrimmel

Sepultura needs more awareness in America.

470 Mary Ann's Place - Volbeat

Volbeat is the best metal band, but doesn't get the recognition it deserves

471 Den Gjemte Sannhets Hersker - Dimmu Borgir

Best in the world

472 Astronomy - Blue Oyster Cult
473 Rise of the Chaos Wizards - Gloryhammer
474 F***ing Hostile - Pantera V 2 Comments
475 Unleashing the Bloodthirsty - Cannibal Corpse

Easily there best

476 "Jimmy" - Tool

This is one of the greatest Tool songs ever written. It is breathless, haunting, and staggeringly heavy in its finale. They very rarely play this gem but I was fortunate enough to stand there dumbstruck when they pulled it out of their bag of tricks Live one night.

477 Happy Song - Bring Me The Horizon

Ollie Sykes is in a better mindset now, so they celebrated by recording a song so damn heavy that it probably belongs on Sempiternal.

478 Skulls... We Are 138 - Trivium

It's not a Trivium song but a Danzig cover, but Trivium are in my view the modern day Metallica, and this Last Caress/Green Hell style belter is a bonus track on their ecxellent Vengeance Falls album.

479 Mennyei Harang - Dalriada

Folk Metal, Power Metal and Ballad combined to unleash its potential!
