Needles - gelatinbeastworm

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

This song doesn't seem to be metal to me - zxm

2 Enter Sandman - Metallica

My all time favourite song but yes it's overrated. I mean the black album is a complete masterpiece with way better songs than this one. But yeah this song had a very huge impact on heavy metal during 90s.

How is this the most popular song, is trash!

Good song, but kinda overrated - zxm

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.

So true. Most of the other songs on the black album are so much better than sandman. But they don't bother even listening to those ones besides Nothing Else Matters and Unforgiven. - TheMaelstromKing

5 Hail to the King - Avenged Sevenfold

Chop Suey and Before I Forget are not overrated songs - Danielsun182

This song is Pure masterpiece of death metal - pruvet

7 Down with the Sickness - Disturbed
8 Master of Puppets - Metallica

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.

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.

Metallica is like u2, piece of garbage
