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 Psychosocial - Slipknot
3 Paranoid - Black Sabbath V 2 Comments
4 Down with the Sickness - Disturbed
5 Hammer Smashed Face - Cannibal Corpse

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

6 Enter Sandman - Metallica

Good song, but kinda overrated - zxm

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.

7 Hail to the King - Avenged Sevenfold
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. - 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

9 Before I Forget - Slipknot
10 One - Metallica

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.

The Newcomers

? Warmness on the Soul - Avenged Sevenfold
