Top 10 Rock and Metal Albums Where the Title Track Isn't the Best Song


The Top Ten

1 Ride the Lightning - Metallica

This album is so good that several songs deserve to be called "the best song on the album". I can't decide between For Whom the Bell Tolls and Ride the Lightning - both are great songs. - Metal_Treasure

For me the best song is For Whom the Bell Tolls with Fade to Black being a Very close 2nd - christangrant

Nah, gotta disagree here. - ProPanda

I like For Whom the Bell Tolls best. - Element119
