Greatest Metal Songs of the 2000s

The Top Ten
1 Afterlife - Avenged Sevenfold

I'm completely shocked this song isn't even in the top 10. In fact, it should be at number 1. Epic lyrics, godly solo, and great theme.
And, wait, Numb in metal songs list? Really insane.

Obviously than this is the best metal song of the 2000s

Is heavy, catchy, the solo is a complete legacy for the world of music, what's more this song needs?

A total masterpiece. I'm 54 and have seen all the greats.. Zeppelin, Deep Purple, Sabbath, and so on. Avenged Sevenfold is destined to go down in history with these bands

This song raised me...It is a total masterpice that should be memorable in the 00s metal history.Since A7x is my favorite band,I have to say that this song is really fantastic but in general other songs like Bat Country deserve a good place also in the list.

2 Chop Suey! - System of a Down

Definitely the best metal song I've ever heard. This should be #1 on the top ten list. This is my favorite song. It's the best.

If this song doesn't belong at number one, I don't know what does.

Ohh man, really2 chop suey is no.4... It must be number 1... System don't give a damn about this

Best metal song of 21th century...why afterlife is number 1?

3 Lateralus - Tool

The whole album is legendary. The song "Lateralus" is a masterpiece composed in a extensively complex process. Most bands couldn't even do a song like this if they had time like... forever.

I'm really surprised how low this is I mean how the hell can Linkin Park and Disturbed be above this? Its one of the most well written songs of all time and if you know anything about music you would agree that this is #1

Best of metal of the 21st Century. Tool will go down in the history of metal. Lateralus is a big contribution to this thought.

This was rated as the #1 metal performance of the century for a very good reason.

4 Numb - Linkin Park

Greatest nu metal band.

LP is pretty great

5 Tears Don't Fall - Bullet for My Valentine

This is one of bullets best songs, and it should be number one, even though Rise Against is a great band! I would have to say that my favorite 3 songs of 2000's are... 1. The Last Fight - Bullet for my Valentine 2. Avenged Sevenfold - Afterlife 3. Rise Against - Behind Closed Doors.

I love this song, My dad is in a local band ( Sicarian Impulse ) and they are covering this song! This isn't my favorite song or band, but the choice of at least top 5 is great.

I am a music composer...
If you're seeking for music and if it's metal... Than... This song is undoubtedly AWESOME!
This is my lifetime favorite song in my entire life...
I wanna rate it the " AWESOME"...
I'm in love with this song...

6 The Diary of Jane - Breaking Benjamin

I love Breaking Benjamin, this band is amazing! The only two bands that can beat this band are Linkin Park and Metallica

7 Psychosocial - Slipknot

Psychosocial is great but Slipknot has better songs than that too!

Totally the best I ever the cleanliness of the tone everything is perfect

Really? No slipknot fans?

Hands down best song of 2008.

8 Down with the Sickness - Disturbed

Great album that showed what the second wave of nu metal had to offer.

Should be number 1. Greatest metal song by farr

The best heavy metal song ever!

9 Blackwater Park - Opeth

How is that track is sow low it's the best song ever written!

I never get bored of this one.

10 Dance of Death - Iron Maiden

Just incredible... Go listen to some of the live versions in south america. Watch the one in chile

This one has to be the best by far! I consider it an epic win, and one of the best Iron Maiden songs

I als love The Day That Never Comes but Dance of Death deserves to be #1.

Best Maiden Solo.. Can compete with any other metal solos ever.

The Contenders
11 Octavarium - Dream Theater
12 Duality - Slipknot

I really don't like most of Slipknot's Songs. They are too less melodic for my ears. But "Duality" is one of those pieces made for eternity: perfectly composed and played soo emotionally. Impressive.

To me, it's a joke Duality isn't even in the top 10. No other metal song has its amazing sound, drums, lyrics, guitar... just everything so perfect, makes you haedbang every second. Maybe it's not the best, but at least top 3.

Drives me insane... SlipKnoT always rocks... they are the one consolation in this stupid life.

hail the nine!

rip P. Gray

Duality is one of the best Vol 3 songs.Listen to it and it will get stuck in your head...And maggots,STAY SIC!

13 Halo - Machine Head

I'm just going to assume that the people voting on this list aren't real metalheads and they obviesly haven't heard this masterpiece. That is the only explenation for this song not being number one

How is this not higher? The riff is insane, great guitar solo and don't get me started on Rob flynns vocals in this song. A truly epic metal song.

Best metal song ever

No doubt the best metal song, from the best album and from the best band of the 2000s

14 Here to Stay - Korn

This song deserved its Grammy award. Totally belongs in the top 5

15 Vicarious - Tool

One of the first tool songs I ever heard. I was about 12 years old, at the time the music was a little too crazy and I just didn't understand what was going on. But it was something that I had never heard before and Tool is now my favorite rock band. Love all of their albums and can't wait until the new one comes out.

16 Nightmare - Avenged Sevenfold

This song is really epic
Please listen to this song before voting any other song
I guaranty you that you wont regret...

That creepy intro coupled with the guitar riffs make this in my opinion the best Avenged Sevenfold song ever.

I love this song, but only one song can beat this, Welcome to the Family. but I am amazed that Avenged Sevenfold was on this list YES!

You should have known the price of evil...Guys A7X made one hell of a track!

17 And Then There Was Silence - Blind Guardian
18 All for One - Primal Fear
19 Power Trip - Chimaira
20 My Last Sunrise - Demons & Wizards
21 Walk With Me In Hell - Lamb of God
22 Stricken - Disturbed

If any Disturbed song deserved more fame than Down With The Sickness, this is it.

Ghis song should be in the top 10. Around number 7

23 The Pursuit of Vikings - Amon Amarth
24 I Will Be Heard - Hatebreed
25 Famous Last Words - My Chemical Romance

I am a music composer...
If you're seeking for music and if it's metal... Than... This song is undoubtedly AWESOME!
This is my lifetime favorite song in my entire life...
I wanna rate it the " AWESOME"...
I'm in love with this song...

My Chemical Romance is Greatest Metal Songs of the 2000's
