142 Dopesmoker - Sleep
143 Eat What You Kill - Unleash the Archers
144 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.

145 The Devil to Pay - Iced Earth
146 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.

147 E.P.M. - DragonForce
148 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.

AC/DC was putting out a lot of pop influenced hard rock into the late 1980s and into the 1990s and this was one of them. - frankmartin

149 Dig - Mudvayne

Sad to see this so low on here. This came out when metal was getting off the ground. Lots of talent in the band to boot

Amazing Songwriting, perfect for headbanging. annoyed though that AC/DC r on the list, they're good but its rock. - mcface

The great song! Much better than all songs of Korn and Slipknot.. Just Perfect
This song deserving to be in top 20 best metal songs! !

It's heavy and makes me want to Headbang, which I have already - MetalHead2001

150 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.

151 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?


152 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!

153 Blackwater Park - Opeth

People should be ashamed for not voting for thing band and song

I was a bit late with Opeth. They are held in very high regard though.

Midtempo, Brilliant Riff => A song you can never forget

154 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.

155 Ghost of Perdition - Opeth

It is extremely sad how underrated Opeth, Testament, Annihilator and Death Angel are. This song is incredible. It's talent. It's MUSIC.

156 The Bleeding - Five Finger Death Punch
157 Wings of Despair - Kamelot V 1 Comment
158 Scavenger of Human Sorrow - Death
159 N.I.B - Black Sabbath
160 Oblivion - Mastodon
