Best Metal Songs
The Contenders: Page 6
What is it? This soul touching song in first 50!
As the title implies, revenge anthem personified, and Anselmo's layered vocals at the end are epic.
This Is One of the most greatest Pantera songs of all time, it deserves top 20 but somehow it's not even in top 100 - Disturbedpotato
Awesome, no way is this on place 132
This song has arguably the most recognizable riff of any song in history... - crou8040
I partly agree with zxm - Deep Purple have metal songs but this song is mostly hard rock. However, the riff is 100% metal because it's classically inspired and has a Beethoven vibe. This was confirmed by Ritchie Blackmore himself. Hard rock riffs are mostly blues-based. Yes, I agree the riff is simple and not very fast but it doesn't mean it's not metal. It is metal because it's based on classical. - Metal_Treasure
Even better than this are the songs "Highway Star" and "Burn". Very Underrated band
This song is not a metal song. Its hard rock. I believe Child In Time is metal but is not metal. I played the main riff of this song. And it was simple. And also slow. I don't think metal riffs can be that kind of slow. It's hard rock - zxmV 5 Comments
Bloody Awesome, it's the best short song ever!
Needs to be up in the top 200
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.
I think this song stole the intro of pantera's walk. It sounds exactly like it and was made after walkV 1 Comment
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!V 1 Comment
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...!
Masterpiece - Disturbedpotato
I only have one album. A bit to emo for my liking, though they are definitely metal. I listen to Bloodrunk occasionally.
This is the best.
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!
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.
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 higherV 5 Comments
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.
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.
A very deep song lyrically, it has that whole think about life vibe too. A musical masterpiece
