Most Overrated Traditional Heavy Metal Songs

Traditional Heavy Metal,so please don't put Raining Blood or Holy Wars here.

The Top Ten

1 Paranoid - Black Sabbath

This would be my #1, too. For all the reasons you already mentioned, and several more. - Metal_Treasure

2 Black Sabbath - Black Sabbath
3 Crazy Train - Ozzy Osbourne

A catchy radio-friendly rock song with happy music that is considered one of the best metal songs... - Metal_Treasure

It is good for one thing, though - it exposed a lot of people to Randy Rhoads and his guitar playing. - Gg2000

4 War Pigs - Black Sabbath

For me this isn't even a metal song but it's in the top 10 of all metal lists. Besides, I find it extremely boring and monotonous. - Metal_Treasure


5 Run to the Hills - Iron Maiden

It's just a more accessible song that helped it become more popular. - Metal_Treasure

6 You've Got Another Thing Comin' - Judas Priest

I do love this song but I agree it's hard rock and shouldn't be on metal lists. - Metal_Treasure

7 2 Minutes to Midnight - Iron Maiden
8 Enter Sandman - Metallica

Very overrated, but I still really like it. - Userguy44

9 The Number of the Beast - Iron Maiden
10 Symphony of Destruction - Megadeth

The Contenders

11 Mother - Danzig
12 One - Metallica

Shouldn't this be considered as thrash? - Userguy44
