Top 10 Modern Rock/Metal Songs with Good Guitar Solos

These modern Rock/ Metal songs do have good guitar solo's (I`m not including Afterlife- A7X however 'cause that solo is so mediocre.) (Modern being from 2000 and onwards.)

The Top Ten

1 Just to Get High - Nickelback

It's a short but pretty damn good guitar solo!

2 Clown Parade - Annihilator

Not one, 2 mindblowing solos! Fast, technical and long. Hands down. - Metal_Treasure

3 Riding the Eagle - Primal Fear

Incredibly fast, long and melodic solo surrounded by awesome drum fills. - Metal_Treasure

4 Kissing the Shadows - Children of Bodom

Includes a long interplay between guitars and keyboards. - Metal_Treasure

5 The Unforgiven III - Metallica

Pretty good solo to be honest.

6 Strike - Primal Fear

Very fast, melodic and technical solo on twin lead guitars. - Metal_Treasure

7 Wheel of Time - Blind Guardian

A very underrated guitar solo.

8 Get Fisted - Skull Fist

Speed metal solo - long, fast and melodic. - Metal_Treasure

9 Stricken - Disturbed

Not a big Disturbed fan but the solo's decent I'd say it's better than A7X's Afterlife solo!

10 The Trend - Annihilator

The Newcomers

? All Nightmare Long - Metallica

It's a good solo.

The Contenders

11 Tanelorn (Into the Void) - Blind Guardian

Not a bad solo.

12 And There Was Silence - Primal Fear
13 Akroasis - Obscura
14 Feed the Machine - Nickelback

Very short solo but still a good solo regardless.

15 Fiddler on the Green - Demons & Wizards
16 Magnetic Propulsion (Tientos) - Flametal V 1 Comment
17 Jekyll and Hyde - Five Finger Death Punch

Again it's a short solo but a good one regardless.

18 Evil Angel - Breaking Benjamin

Short but decent solo wise.

19 One x - Three Days Grace

Great song about people being shunned because they take drugs, but rise above everyone, get off the drugs, and "Stand above the crowd"

It's a short solo but it's decent.

20 Tornado of Souls - Megadeth

Metal Treasure has a point I did say "Modern being from 2000 and onwards." This song was made in 1990 so it doesn't qualify.

This shouldn't be on this list - the author said "Modern being from 2000 and onwards". - Metal_Treasure

One of the best solos of all time, with plenty of melody, beautifully composed, and of course, a lot of shred. - HiBye

It may be good, but Tornado of Souls was recorded and produced in 1990. - OrionPink
