Best Metal Songs

The Contenders: Page 7

121 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.

122 Breaking the Law - Judas Priest

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

Needs to be up in the top 200

123 The Hellion - Judas Priest
124 Born In Winter - Gojira

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

125 The Solitude - Draconian
126 Six - All that Remains
127 Heartwork - Carcass
128 God Is Dead? - Black Sabbath
129 A New World - Dark Moor
130 Into the Infinity of Thoughts - Emperor
131 Thunderstruck - AC/DC

You cannot honestly say that Metallica have 3 of the top 10 best ever metal songs and Pantera have two. I don't like ACDC much but i can appreciate how much this song has influenced and that it deserves a place in the top 5.

It might not be the most famous song but the guitaring
is amazing in it, hear it!

I like AC/DC, but they aren't metal and Thunderstruck is average.

132 B.Y.O.B. - System of a Down

Nobody can deny this song. Its power, lyrical meaning, protesting nature and just how catchy it is make it worthy of the number 1 spot here.

In fact, System of a Down are my favourite metal band and I could've voted for pretty much any of their songs, but this one takes the cake. I love Iron Maiden, I love Black Sabbath, I love Metallica, Pantera, Slayer, Anthrax, Judas Priest, Megadeth and just about any of the older heavy metal bands generally considered the best, but their songs in terms of what they mean and how they're put together as musical compositions will never stand up to what System of a Down created a few years down the line; especially with B.Y.O.B. - they hit the nail on the head with this.

Great song, explosive intro and riffs. In my opinion, it is the best System of a Down song. It definitely deserves to be in the top ten.

System of a Down's best song in my opinion. Don't know how it's only 47th but Chop Suey! Is 4th? Don't get me wrong, Chop Suey is a great song, but B.Y.O.B. is so much better - Porcupine

great song

133 Vicarious - Tool

What bad things can you possibly say about a song of such profundity, such passion, such intelligence?

134 300 - Antim Grahan

Antim Grahan is just fabulous. I am from Denmark. And have never heard of such good song ever. This is the best piece of music ever created. The guitarist seems awesome. I will listen more from these guys

135 Sober - Tool

137? You have to be joking. This in my opinion is the best metal song of all time, and to me personally my favorite song of all time. The way the song makes you feel, the way you stomp along with the bass line, the moodiness, its just an absolute masterpiece.

This is one of my favor songs ever probably no as good as the top ten in this list but it deserves to be at least on the top 30

Yes, it is from their debut album, so you would expect it to be less quality. I had Tool well before my friend knew it.

Tool is the best lateralus is too cool to be unheard.

136 Forty Six & 2 - Tool

It's Tool. Like Metallica and Iron Maiden, there's simply no-one like them.

137 A Tout Le Monde - Megadeth

Hey, it's good. If it sounds good, listen to it. Life's not that hard is it?

138 Fake It - Seether

In this list, Seether's Fake It could be deserve a good place. Because Seether, and their songs ; absolutely their metal songs ; they give us what we want.

139 Irresponsible Hate Anthem - Marilyn Manson

This song is what rock and role is all about and sets the tone for the most shocking performer of all time.

140 Aesthetics of Hate - Machine Head

Best song ever, very thrash and fast. Most importantly dedicated to dimebag darrel (RIP)

How are Machine Head not much much higher at least a top ten
