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

34 Fight Fire with Fire - Metallica
35 Mass Hypnosis - Sepultura
36 No Hope in Sight - Paradise Lost
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.

38 Suffocating Under Words of Sorrow (What Can I Do) - Bullet for My Valentine
39 Gently - Slipknot
40 Deer Dance - System of a Down
41 This Fire Burns - Killswitch Engage
42 Flash of the Blade - Iron Maiden

Not underrated at all. And if you pay attention, this isn't a metal song - a big part of it is poppy, radio-friendly stuff. - Metal_Treasure

44 Death Come Near Me - Draconian

so underrated, even on this list!
