Best Metal Songs
The Contenders: Page 5
I love the harmonica in this song.
Total kick ass song. And it has a great meaning behind it. I think the only reason this is not in the top ten is nobody has listened to it because its so long. - fireinside96
It is indeed one of Dream Theater's best songs, because it is literally progressive metal, rather than the progressive rock of the late 60's that makes me a bit ambivalent about them. Hey, each to their own. Now where's Ride The Lightning...
This is BY FAR the best METAL song I've ever heard! - moose4life19
Too good to be only "music"V 12 Comments
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...
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.
Rank 84? Are you kidding me! Orion is one of metallica's masterpiece! - FACOKILLER
Along with Deathrow's Triocton, probably the greatest instrumental ever written.V 1 Comment
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
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
This song is amazing. The opening stuck riff stuck with me for days the first time I heard this song. He Who Spawned the Furies should be up here as well.
Definition of Metal. What is wrong with you people?!
Sorry, I was too busy listening to Trivium's stunning Shogun album to pay attention. Oh, ok. I see. Yes, Stryper are incredible...V 1 Comment
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.
Great new song. Taciturn- stone sour is also VERY good
I like this entire switch up album.
This whole album kicks ass.
Yeah, it's brutal.
This is a thrash masterpiece, Started it all of for Exodus
That cover isn't bonded by blood here. That is let there be blood with hammet's hell,s breath. Bailof was the original vocalist, but passed on. Is that the one you have?V 1 Comment
Yes, Dio just had that solo vocalist syndrome, so whatever band he was in, if the fans liked him then they did, and if not then didn't.
This is probably the best song ever written. I honestly have no idea why this song is so low.
DIO and Black Sabbath sound heavy but I don't consider them heavy metal, more like heavy rock. - frankmartin
This song at #172... I just lost my faith in humanity. - Metal_TreasureV 2 Comments
This is the best.
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"
Best mosh song ever
The official Wall Of Death anthem. Perfect moshing song by a perfect band.
