Top Ten Questions About Metal Songs to Ask People


The Top Ten

1 Master of Puppets (Metallica) or Dante's Inferno (Iced Earth)

Both are legendary, but I choose Dante's Inferno. - IronSabbathPriest

Both are great songs but I always go with the less popular song/band, so Dante's Inferno. - Metal_Treasure

Master of Puppets gets my vote - Shake_n_Bake13

2 Stargazer (Rainbow) or Sacred Worlds (Blind Guardian)

I love Blind Guardian and I love Sacred Worlds. But without Rainbow and Stargazer, I doubt there would be a Blind Guardian. So Stargazer for the win. - IronSabbathPriest

I completely agree with IronSabbathPriest - I also love both bands and both songs but there wouldn't be Blind Guardian without Rainbow and the epicness of Stargazer. - Metal_Treasure

3 Crazy Train (Ozzy Osbourne) or Holy Diver (Dio)

Both from when their respective artists were at their highest. - IronSabbathPriest

Holy diver! It's more energetic and metallic - Songsta41

Crazy Train is the better song.

Holy Diver.
Crazy Train's got amazing guitars but the song as a whole sounds mainstream-ish and pop-ish, so Holy Diver.
Even non-metal fans know and like Crazy Train - I'm not surprised because I know that Crazy Train is catchier than a metal song should be. - Metal_Treasure

4 Paranoid (Black Sabbath) or Heaven and Hell (Black Sabbath)

Both completely different songs by the same band. If you're a fan of classic rock, then you'll like Paranoid more. I love both, but I choose Paranoid. - IronSabbathPriest

Paranoid by a country mile. However, Heaven in Hell is quite good and was a great comeback album.

I love both but I love metal more than classic rock - so Heaven and Hell. - Metal_Treasure

5 Helter Skelter (The Beatles) or Highway Star (Deep Purple)

Highway Star all the way!

Highway Star any day - Metal_Treasure

6 Ace of Spades (Motorhead) or Breaking the Law (Judas Priest)

I've got Breaking the Law on this one - Shake_n_Bake13

Both are short, enjoyable songs. - IronSabbathPriest

Ace Of Spades. But I love both bands.

Ace of Spades takes this one.

7 Peace Sells (Megadeth) or Raining Blood (Slayer)

Even though I don't really like Slayer, that riff is just too good. - Songsta41

Raining Blood. It's just so epic - Shake_n_Bake13

8 Walk (Pantera) or Arise (Sepultura)

Both have killer guitar riffs! - IronSabbathPriest

Arise by light years!

9 Octavarium (Dream Theater) or Blackwater Park (Opeth)

I love both songs so much! But Octavarium is my favourite song of all time. - IronSabbathPriest

Octavarium is the greatest song of all time, so Octavarium. - Songsta41

10 Futureal (Iron Maiden With Bruce Dickinson) or Futureal (Iron Maiden With Blaze Bayley)

Bruce is better. On't know why, but he just is by far. - Songsta41

Not even a contest. The Beautiful People. Easy - Shake_n_Bake13
