33 Escape - Metallica

It's a very overlooked song. Just listen to the beautiful guitar harmony in the beginning and you'll wonder why Metallica and their fans dismissed this song in the first place.

This song is one of the best songs off of the album "Ride the Lightning". It's one of my favorite songs from my favorite band. Escape is just a masterpiece. - Kluuz

36 No Hope in Sight - Paradise Lost UListen to Sample
37 Run of the Mill - Judas Priest

This song is so truly depressing. It leaves behind a powerful message of making the most out of your life and not letting it waste away, like the man in the song. Up there with Stairway To Heaven. Listen to it. The lyrics are chilling and impactful.
