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