This song shouldn't be here. I've said it a lot of times, that this song doesn't fall under any genre of metal. Very far from metal. - zxm
Defiantly deserves to be Number 1 its not even Metal its to Punkish to be called Metal - christangrant

Music fans: Enter Sandman is the best Metallica song
Metal fans: Master of Puppets is the best Metallica song
Metallica fans: Kill 'em All and Ride the Lightning contains the best Metallica songs! - somekindofaguy
Your Typical Music Fan: ENTER SANDMAN IS the BEZT because IT'S POPULAR AND MY FRIENDZ LIKE IT AND It's the BEZT!
Your Typical Mainstream Metal Fan: MASTER OF PUPPETZ IS the BEZT because IT'S THE BEZT AND EVERYONE LIKEZ IT AND SEZ IT'S the BEZT!
Your Typical Die-Hard Metallica Fan: The Best Metallica songs come from the 80s albums, but my favorite songs are The Four Horsemen, Jump in the Fire, Whiplash, Phantom Lord, Seek and Destroy, Metal Militia, Fight Fire With Fire, Ride the Lightning, Fade to Black, Trapped Under Ice, Creeping Death, The Call of Ktulu, Battery, Master of Puppets, Welcome Home (Sanitarium), Disposable Heroes, Orion, Damage Inc, Blackened, Eye of the Beholder, The Shortest Straw, The Frayed Ends of Sanity, and Dyers Eve.
People act like this is the greatest song of all time, making Stairway to Heaven look like crap, and I'm just sitting here knowing that this isn't even the best Metallica song, or even the best from the album. I even made a blog post about 5 out of many songs better than this. - DarkenedBrutality
Agreed, this song isn't bad song. It's a very good song. But it looks like this song is permanently attached on top of the "best metal song chart". While there are other better metal songs that this. - zxm
This should be higher on the list, and One shouldn't be on this list.
I agree, this isn't there best song. Though this song is great, but still its overrated - zxm
One is actually underrated compared to Master of Puppets. - DarkenedBrutality
One is very overrated. The solo isn't that good and the bass was turned down. The chorus is bland and the transition from soft to heavy was terrible. It was just a copy of Welcome Home(Sanitarium) and Fade to Black. The song isn't that good. It doesn't deserve the huge amount of respect it gets.
No this song deserves all the praise it gets for being a perfect song - christangrant
Master of Puppets is WAAYY more overrated than this masterpiece.
This song is not good AT ALL at best its medicore and this was the best song on that sh! t album that deserves none of its praise - christangrant
Not a metal song.
