Best Metal Songs

The Contenders: Page 6

101 Pull the Plug - Death

Such a shame there is no single song of Death in the top ten. Death is so amazing.

Yes they are, and when Andy le Roche entered the fray, no-one was creating Death like Death.

102 Coming Down - Five Finger Death Punch V 1 Comment
103 My Curse - Killswitch Engage V 1 Comment
104 Coming Undone - Korn

I think this song stole the intro of pantera's walk. It sounds exactly like it and was made after walk

105 Framing Armageddon - Iced Earth
106 Queen of the Reich - Queensr├┐che

I love 'Queen of the Reich', but they wore spandex and make-up when they wrote it, just like Axel and co.

Are you kidding me! This is pure power metal. The Beatles aren't, Deep Purple, and AC/DC aren't even metal. They're either rock or hard rock. Guns n Roses, opinions vary. Queen of the Reich kicks System of a Down out the door!

107 God Is Dead? - Black Sabbath
108 Andromeda - Dethklok
109 Everytime I Die - Children of Bodom

I love the whole song I can't stop myself listening again and again

Um feelin so sad to see this at #57.. :( this one is amazing! Great melody! Great solos! Great composition! So much better than Chop Suey! It deserves the place of Chop Suey...!

I only have one album. A bit to emo for my liking, though they are definitely metal. I listen to Bloodrunk occasionally.

110 Bulls on Parade - Rage Against the Machine

This is the best.

111 Y'all Want a Single - Korn

It makes you smile and dance? Is it techno from its halcyon days, when those smiley pills were at their best? Count me in.

Lol this song has so cool intro, it makes me smile and dance. really great song, thumbs up for Korn

A metal song that makes you smile and dance? Pass!


112 Electric Eye - Judas Priest

WTF! This is the best Judas Priest song an should be in the top ten

This is one of their best songs and they are one of the best metal bands... Why is this 70th.
YOU people are crazy. Get a good taste in music people!

I never paid much attention to JP as Killers was my first ever cassette. Sentimental value.

113 Salem, Ark - Byzantine
114 Rime of the Ancient Mariner - Iron Maiden

I love this song, lyrics, music... Everything about it seems perfect to me. Perfect song within an album perfect by a perfect band. Thank you Irons!

Fantastic song with great guitar and vocals, it is 13 minutes of awesome.

Iron Maiden's best release; raising it 150 places on this list would just about do it.

Should be much higher

115 Hammer Smashed Face - Cannibal Corpse

It's the best song of cannibal corpse and the heaviest metal song. I don't know why people go and vote for x-Japan and a7x than cannibal corpse

I guess it's because the title of a song named Hammer Smashed Face isn't all that appealing. I'm just hazarding a guess.

116 Phantom of the Opera - Iron Maiden

There are many bands higher on the list that have definitely never made a better song than this. This is one of the greatest metal songs in all of time. And come on you Maiden fans, to suggest Fear Of The Dark is a a better track than this is borderline insanity. UP THE IRONS m/

I like this song very much

Absolute genius, expecially since it was on their first album. Shame it's so low

Gotta love the riff and those awesome soloes in the middel of the song.
Live After Death version kicks ass.

117 The Devil In I - Slipknot

I have no words to properly describe how awesome this song actually is, I believe this song should be higher on the list, the song has a message and an awesome flow. The chord progression is also amazing.

118 Breaking the Law - Judas Priest

Bloody Awesome, it's the best short song ever!

Needs to be up in the top 200

119 Born In Winter - Gojira

A very deep song lyrically, it has that whole think about life vibe too. A musical masterpiece

120 The Solitude - Draconian
