Not all metal fans like extreme metal so this list is about metal songs that are melodic and with clean vocals all the time or most of the time.

The Top Ten

1 Lightning Strike - Judas Priest Lightning Strike - Judas Priest Cover Art

The Metal Gods are still going strong. The key members are in their 60s and 70s and they still rock! Hand down. - Metal_Treasure

There are some harsh vox though - Metal_Treasure
