Top Ten Nirvana and Metallica Songs


The Top Ten

1 Master of Puppets - Metallica

Best heavy metal ever. No doubt about it. This should definitely be on the first place.

As much as I love Nirvana, I have to say that this is more deserving of #1 than what fans have dubbed "Smells Like the Only Nirvana you Know"

Awesome song! It should be in first place. Good stuff.

Put this higher right now! - McKing1003

2 Smells Like Teen Spirit - Nirvana

The music is amazing and completely surprising... The lyrics don't make any sense and that's what gives it the unpredictable style... Kurt Cobain always said that the music was the most important part and that he always focused on that and he succeeded in making a great song.

This list combines my 2 favorite bands ever, but I have 2 go with Smells Like Teen Spirit my favorite song ever

Yup knew it. - PanthersFTWpatriotsFTL

Nirvana is just of a higher level band

3 One - Metallica

The first part feels like Fade to Black, the second blows you away, because it's like Master of Puppets! Overall an all-time favorite song of mine! - 2ndFanboy128

Underrated compared to Master of Puppets. I think this is a lot better than MoP.

When I play this, I scroll to the middle, for me, the rest is not that good and quite overrated.

In my opinion, Metallica's best song ever.
I like both bands though - Ajkloth

4 The Unforgiven - Metallica

Smells like teen spirit should top this list because it is the most influential song of the nineties and it led a huge grunge/alternative movement. That being said this is my favorite song from either of these bands so I had to give it some love. I'm a huge fan of both of these guys wish Kurt was still around making music, but I'm kind of sad about what Metallica has become so maybe it was for the best. Love the list love the bands.

I love all these songs since I very 1st heard metallica it and Nirvana are the only band I will be totally relaxed and sad it nothing else relates at same time best loved one gone and I miss the past

6 Fade To Black - Metallica

This song does not deserve to be here.. It is a great insult to this epic song.. It is probably, sorry, not probably, definitely the best song in this list.. Deserve only the 1st position..

THE BEST Metallica ballad. Period.

10 For Whom the Bell Tolls - Metallica

The Contenders

11 Rape Me - Nirvana

Best Nirvana song. I've only heard Kill em' All and Master of Puppets from Metallica, so can't say how it compares to Metallica's entire discography, but better than the ones I've heard.

I like this song, but I don't want it done to me (PLEASE NO).
I asked my friend if he knew this song, then he sang "Rape me, " and the funny thing was that it was in school-- when there was an awkward silence. Everyone looked at him, and then he hid under a desk.

What is with the songs title. Rape me just no I respect nirvana but please change the title - MrQuaz680

This song is underrated. Mainly because of the title.

14 In Bloom - Nirvana

This doesn't make sense, this should be #1 and not smells like teen spirit, there are way more songs that are better like drain you or milk it.

Metallica and nirvana? My 2 favourite bands. What is this sorcery?
