Best Rock and Metal Songs of All Time


The Top Ten

1 Bohemian Rhapsody - Queen

Best song of all time. It's creative, has powerful lyrics and Freddie Mercury is the best singer of all time. Brian May has a great solo in it and I also consider this to have the best opening to any song. It is very original. - PeeledBanana

For me it's an amazing song even though it's not the "best" of all time. But it almost is! My favorite is Comfortably Numb. - MaxPap

Wrote by the amazing Freddie Mercury.

Iconic and timeless song, shows Freddie's genuie.

2 Master of Puppets - Metallica

Best by Metallica for sure. I will admit I like Iron Maiden better than Metallica but this song is a work of art. - PeeledBanana

3 Hallowed by Thy Name - Iron Maiden

A very good song that got me into metal music. Iron Maiden is truly talented. - PeeledBanana

4 Stairway to Heaven - Led Zeppelin

A song that gets too much credit but does that mean it's bad? No, of course not. It has a good sound and complexity, and also a great solo. - PeeledBanana

5 Bring Me to Life - Evanescence

I'm one of the few people who prefer this over My Immortal. in my opinion, this song had better lyrics and better vocals. - PeeledBanana

Both are really tremendous songs you can't go wrong with which you like slightly more. - htoutlaws2012

6 Hey Jude - The Beatles

Even though I think The Beatles get too much credit just like Led Zeppelin, this song is very good, Paul McCartney was a great singer. - PeeledBanana

7 Comfortably Numb - Pink Floyd

There's no need to explain how amazing David Gilmour was in this. - PeeledBanana

8 We Will Rock You - Queen

Probably the most catchy song ever, people should put this in those try not to sing challenges, I guarantee a lot of people would fail the challenge. - PeeledBanana

9 Highway to Hell - AC/DC

Another very catchy song with good lyrics. I love the solo and the vocals. - PeeledBanana
