7 Thorn Within - Metallica Thorn Within - Metallica

Sure it's different from what we're used to hearing from Metallica, but this song just kicks ass in my opinion! Actually, it's in my top 5 favorite Metallica songs. I personally think it should've been a single.

Should be in the top 3 at least. Thorn Within is my favorite Metallica song from the Load / ReLoad era.

Really cool song! I think it should be number 1 on this list.

8 Pareidolia - Elena Siegman
9 Without You - Breaking Benjamin Without You - Breaking Benjamin
10 Blackbird - Alter Bridge Blackbird - Alter Bridge

The greatest song of all time should be released as a single, don't you think?

The Contenders

11 What Lies Beneath - Breaking Benjamin What Lies Beneath - Breaking Benjamin
12 Roulette - System of a Down Roulette - System of a Down

This song is so different for System of a Down and I guess that's why it's not a single, but still it's such a great song, it's got beautiful vocals from both Serj and Daron and it would have appealed to all kinda of people with all kinda of tastes.

13 Long Forgotten Sons - Rise Against Long Forgotten Sons - Rise Against
14 Time of Dying - Three Days Grace Time of Dying - Three Days Grace
15 Would It Matter - Skillet Would It Matter - Skillet
16 Valentine's Day - Linkin Park Valentine's Day - Linkin Park

Best song from Minutes to Midnight. Amazing mellow rock!

17 No More Sorrow - Linkin Park No More Sorrow - Linkin Park
18 Remember - Adema Remember - Adema
19 Chapter Four - Avenged Sevenfold Chapter Four - Avenged Sevenfold
20 Carpe Diem Baby - Metallica Carpe Diem Baby - Metallica
