The Contenders: Page 2

21 The Diary of Jane - Breaking Benjamin
22 Bring Me to Life - Evanescence
23 You've Got Another Thing Comin' - Judas Priest

Breaking the Law,Victim of Changes and Painkiller are way,way,WAY more overrated - DejanKalinic

24 Nothing Else Matters - Metallica

The most famous metallica song besides Enter sandman. It's not even that good

This song is hardly metal. - zxm

25 One - Metallica

One is actually underrated compared to Master of Puppets.

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.

26 Bat Country - Avenged Sevenfold
27 Raining Blood - Slayer

This is without question the most overrated in my book. Not even that good. I'm convinced that 90% of the people who claim this song & this album are the greatest ever, do so because they think they're supposed to, not because they really believe it. Same goes for Holy Wars.

Good song, but there are much more heavier songs than this.

Who cares if some songs are heavier - imabigpotato

Maybe be, maybe not. But it isn't a metal song. - zxm
