Top Ten Metallica Songs That Sound Best When Played LiveScretty_MUFC
The Top Ten
The whole arrangement with the extended sound effects at the beginning and the backing pictures make for a brilliant live song. - Scretty_MUFC
I never thought this was a great song until I heard its live version. It's the best!
The signature song. The crowd participation is so good, especially in the interlude. - Scretty_MUFC
The studio version of this song bores me...
One of metal's most recognisable riffs and a feel-good song which is always a good way to close the show! The energy in this song is amazing and there are little touches like James adding in the name of wherever they're playing. - Scretty_MUFC
All hell breaks loose when that one riff breaks in
Just so powerful and heavy. Perfect for a live show. - Scretty_MUFC
Never knew this would sound so good live. - Userguy44
Even better than the studio version, the end gives you chills when the audience sing along. It's like an anthem. - Scretty_MUFC
Everyone knows this song, and the chorus is perfect for crowd participation when they shout back to the band. Normally follows Nothing Else Matters so an amazing way to get everyone's energy back up and it's ideal to close the main set. - Scretty_MUFC
Most Popular Metallica song.
I can't think of a better way to open or close a show, but particularly open one. Really gets the crowd going and if they play Master straight after it then it's just perfect. - Scretty_MUFC
The first two times I went to see Metallica, they opened the show with Battery, great way to open!
It's 10000000k timed better live. Better snare and amazing energy. - Userguy44
Not played often but always amazing when it is. - Scretty_MUFC
It's absolutely criminal that this song isn't top 5, the whole part after the solo is fantastic
The whole crowd screaming DIE DIE, can't believe this is so low on the list, should be at or near the top!
Was Metallica's SECOND most played song live (only surpassed by Master of Puppets) so It probably does sound good live.
They finally played it in full, and it was awesome! - Scretty_MUFC
You want heavy? Metallica gives you heavy! - Userguy44
A good song to start off the show.
This is their best song live, by far!
Should be Number 1. One is such an overrated song
Man, this song is awesome itself, but when it's played live it makes it even more. I don't know, but I've seen a lot of live performances of this song on YouTube, and it seems that the everyone in the entire stadium gets an energy vibe. The whole crowd starts shouting, because they know what's coming, an awesome song! I would love to be there though. - Wolf92xd
I loved the studio version of Dream No More, but live is so much better I actually usually skip over the studio recording of it. The YOU TURRN! TO STONE! Is so much better live. The studio version was more of an aggressive punch, whereas love Rob and James combine and make it so heavy you feel like you could fight kangaroo for a few seconds!
