Best Metal Songs

The Contenders: Page 5

81 Bleed - Angel Dust
82 The Wizard - Black Sabbath

I love the harmonica in this song.

83 The Poet and the Pendulum - Nightwish

It not only represents a heavy metal song but also a song full of meaning and emotions. It has different phases and the lyrics goes beyond words. Amazing song. Amazing band.

a 14 mins masterpiece. the song flows like a poem

The most epic song I've ever heard,
Unfairly unknown.
The whole song has a lot of different feelings.
It should have much more votes.

My favourite!

84 Freezing Moon - Mayhem

So epic and ominous... A black metal classic yet it only reaches 99? It's better than most, if not all of the other songs on the list! So genre defining yet it seems to have Bren seriously under-rated

They are regarded as distasteful here. We're not conservative, but it's not well regarded. In fact, hardly anyone would even know them but me and a few others.

One f d best black metal songs ever...

85 Orion - Metallica

Classic Metallica: great progressive build with an epic riff.

Orion is on the greatest metal album in history, so throwing it at #1 or #777 makes no difference. The list is well designed to open peoples minds to material they wouldn't have been aware. Props. But still, vote for it and up it goes.

Along with Deathrow's Triocton, probably the greatest instrumental ever written.

What¿¿ this song should be in the top 10..

86 Antichrist Superstar - Marilyn Manson

Saton's National amthem of Anti christanity. The most shocking song in rock history that doesn't suck.

One of the best metal songs ever made. M-A-S-T-E-R-P-I-E-C-E

87 Bat Country - Avenged Sevenfold

As a massive fan of both metallica and iron maiden I see this gem of a song down at 95 and say... Guys, what the hell... Like seriously what on earth. - Skymoon22

A Great song what the hell is it doing down here

88 From Can to Can't - Corey Taylor

Great new song. Taciturn- stone sour is also VERY good

89 Welcome Home (Sanitarium) - Metallica

Much better! Incredible song, and Metallica at the height of their powers. A subversive dig at Psychiatrt, and a bold statement that it's your life to live.

90 Clouds Over California - Devildriver

Yeah, it's brutal.

91 Ropes - In Flames

I like this entire switch up album.

92 Touch of Hate - Graveworm
93 Wait and Bleed - Slipknot

This was literally THE song that got me into metal a few months ago, no more sad months listening to Linkin Park... If it weren't for SlipKnoT and Wait And Bleed I would never have been into metal... Everythings perfect... The vocals, the drums, bass and guitar, the tempo, I just love the whole song it's so aggressive and just great for letting out your hate!

I will wait and bleed for this to be #1 were it should be - numetalhead

Its very deserved to be in top ten, oh God every part of this song is brilliant, totally genius. The vocal can't be explained.. Too great

Every time when I don't know what to do or don't have anything to say, I start to sing this song.. it's amazing and makes me wanna jump and scream

94 Symphony of Destruction - Megadeth

I heard this song and I started to listen Megadeth's songs. This song is awesome! And you can play the riff easily.

What the hell is this song doing on 36?.. Great lyrics and guitar from mustaine way better than chop suey... You call yourselves metal heads and you put chop suey on top 10?.. Bitches

NUMBER 51! ARE YOU KIDDING ME! This is one of the best metal songs ever, for me it is top 10 material and if you people can't see it you are no real metal heads.

Deserves much higher than 58

95 Bulls on Parade - Rage Against the Machine

This is the best.

96 Angels Eternally Burn - Antim Grahan

What! It should be on top 5. It is the best metal song I have heard and the piano's sound strikes my mind. Very good screaming with good lyrics. Just listen once! Proper heavy metal! This song rocks, more than "Chop Suey - System of a Down"

97 Through the Fire and Flames - DragonForce

This a very good song, it totally deserves to be on this list. Very well executed, nice solo as well


A song with great solos of the guitars, great vocal, great drumming, and great modern effects. For me, this is the best metal song ever. Dragon Force rules!

Very fast and heavy, enough said.

98 Black Label - Lamb of God

Best mosh song ever

The official Wall Of Death anthem. Perfect moshing song by a perfect band.

99 5 Minutes Alone - Pantera

As the title implies, revenge anthem personified, and Anselmo's layered vocals at the end are epic.

Awesome, no way is this on place 132

100 The Unforgiven - Metallica

What is it? This soul touching song in first 50!
