Best Metal Songs

The Contenders: Page 8

141 Blackened - Metallica

Best thrash metal song I've ever heard. And in my opinion, it's Metallica's best song. - ilymetallica

This solo is one of the best solos of all time.

Between The Buried and Me cover it. Dyers Eve for me.

142 Fight Fire with Fire - Metallica

Has such an addictive rhythm from the guitar, drums and vocals and the double bass during and after the solo is just orgasmic. - CrankyCroc


143 Chiron - All That Remains

Great song from their worst album, oddly enough. It's production is worse than St. Anger's - if that's even possible.

144 My Own Summer (Shove It) - Deftones

Savage opener from one of Deftones best.

145 Song of the Damned - Soilwork
146 Clairvoyant Disease - Avenged Sevenfold
147 Dopesmoker - Sleep
148 Sweet Child O' Mine - Guns N' Roses

This song rocks! I love the guitar solo. Clean... Hard... Rock!

One of the best songs of all time. Should be at least on the top 15

Slash the awesome guitarist

They are a hair metal band.

149 Gods of Wrath - Metal Church

It's not of the calibre of Watch The Children Pray, but it is a pretty good ballad from their excellent debut.

150 E.P.M. - DragonForce
151 Rainbow in the Dark - Dio

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.

To not have this in the top 100 is absurd...

This song at #172... I just lost my faith in humanity. - Metal_Treasure

152 Dance of Death - Iron Maiden

This song is just one of those songs that does everything right, and it has so many epic moments that it is impossible for me not to rate it as the best song ever. Why is this at number 37? (Also, why is Master of Puppets number one? No matter how many times I listen to it it never seems to grow on me, and just sounds like another generic thrash metal song).

The Lead of this song defines true Metal if this is not on the top 10 spots this site is seriously screwed

... This one of the best song ever made. This song tells a whole story. I'm not a metal head but for me this song rocks... I don't want to criticize other songs but this is one of the greatest song I've ever heard... And steve harris is the est lyricist in the world... God save pop music...

Lmao. Gold.

153 All Nightmare Long - Metallica

It's James trying to be his best, but I feel sorry for him. If you were around at his best he was staggering. He has the weight of the world on him. All the bands pay tribute to him because he highly regarded. He is the greatest of all time.

Insanely brilliant song with one of the best choruses of all time. Sheer mastery, relentless drumming, godly riffs and James' voice in this out of the world. One of Metallica's classics!

Metallica is the best band ever, and this song is the best from Death Magnetic. The riff, the solo, the lyrics, the guitar and the ending make this song a great song! - rock2metal

Great song!

154 The Final - Dir En Grey

Vinushka is the number 1 metal song but either way Dir en grey deserve the top space so this gets my vote.

Great song but I don't count this as metal though vinushka is metal agitated screams is metal dead tree is metal vinushka deserves number 1

You're schooling me on bands I don't know.

155 Disposable Heroes - Metallica

"BACK TO THE FRONT" very good song I wouldn't say best but still unbelievable, also this definitely better than smoke on the water

The sheer heaviness and lack of melody makes this a thrash monster.

What modern metal song isn't better than Smoke on the water?


156 I Want Out - Helloween

This was the first metal song I ever heard. I was 3 years old and listened to my dad's LP records.
Now I'm a metal fan since 23 years. I'm 26 now. :D

This is one of my favorite songs even today!

157 Walk With Me In Hell - Lamb of God

What on 62? who is voting here a bunch of novice... this song has one of the smoothest transitions from one riff to another... its absolutely ridiculous to see so many Metallica songs here and only a handful of megadeth, iron maiden and pantera songs...

There's over 700 songs if you haven't noticed. I've been searching for Evergrey for months.
