Metal_Treasure

The Top Ten

1 You'll take my life but I'll take yours, too - The Trooper, Iron Maiden
2 What do you mean, "I don't believe in God"? I talk to him everyday - Peace Sells, Megadeth
3 New blood joins this earth and quickly he's subdued. Through constant pained disgrace the young boy learns their rules - The Unforgiven I, Metallica
4 From our lives' beginning on we are pushed in little forms. No one asks us how we like to be, in school they teach you what to think - I Want Out, Helloween
5 Don't talk to strangers 'cause they're only there to do you harm. Don't write in starlight 'cause the words may come out real - Don't Talk To Strangers, Dio
6 "Fool just another, fool just another... I've been waiting for signs of god" - Bright Eyes, Blind Guardian
7 Sing me a song, you're a singer - Heaven and Hell, Black Sabbath

Sorry, MT, that anonymous comment is very ironically funny. I couldn't help laughing. "Sing me a song, you're a singer" genius. :D - Britgirl

@anonymous troll - Dio is “an addled burnout”? You’re the only person in history who would say this. Oh, you confused Ozzy with Dio? Too bad. But confusing things is so typical for you - like when you thought symphonic metal is garage rock and wrote many other laughable statements from the depths of your musical knowledge. So yes, your insightful statement “Dio is an addled burnout” deserves to be carved in stone at the top of the Andes. And promptly forgotten. - Metal_Treasure

Wow. Epic genius. How did such an addled burnout ever put seven words together? Such structure. Such depth. Should be carved in stone at the top of the Andes. And promptly forgotten.

8 Shame covers me, what was light has turned to dark. Pain torments me, where there once was something holy now beats my blackened heart - Sinner, Theocracy
9 ...and the road becomes my bride, I have stripped of all but pride, so in her I do confide and she keeps me satisfied - Wherever I May Roam, Metallica
10 I was born amidst the purple waterfalls. I was weak, yet not unblessed - Bless the Child, Nightwish

The Contenders

11 No sign of life did flickerin floods of tears she cried "All hope's lost, it can't be undone.They're wasted and gone" - Nightfall, Blind Guardian
12 Show me your banner, come show me your sign. The Crimson King's eye is the mark to reveal you are mine - Crimson King, Demons & Wizards
13 Through the Gates of Hell, as We Make Our Way to Heaven, through the Nazi Lines, primo Victoria.
