Top 10 Rock and Metal Songs Shorter Than 1 Minute

The Top Ten

1 Battle of Sudden Flame - Blind Guardian

Stat padding, like I said, is another way of saying quantity over quality. So if you want quality, don't look at lists with this formula -
Top 10 genreA and genreB songs shorter/longer than #minute(s). - Skullkid755

This isn't really stat padding. Although subgenre specific lists do need to stop. But this list isn't an example of such. - IronSabbathPriest

The best use of 44 seconds with the most beautiful result. It has incredible vocals and unique melody. Lyrics:
"Oh lord here I stand
Suddenly everything's gone
For all Noldor
From now on my life is my gift to you
Just lead my fate to the victory of elves". - Metal_Treasure

2 Change of Ideas - Bad Religion

55 seconds. Music is pretty simple and ordinary but lyrics are very good. - Metal_Treasure

3 The Minstrel - Blind Guardian

This the best way to spend 32 seconds. Lyrics:
"So I stand still in front of the crowd
Excited faces
What will be next?
I still don't have a clue
I still don't have a clue" - Metal_Treasure

4 Her Majesty - The Beatles
5 Crayons Can Melt on Us for All I Care - Relient K

Lyrics are very interesting: "I just wasted 10 seconds of your life".
At least they are honest and didn't hide their intentions, LOL. They get additional credits for the sense of humor. - Metal_Treasure

6 Out on the Water - Blind Guardian

0:44 minutes. Lirycs:
"Out on the water
The island of the dead that live
There they dwelt
Until they left the world and
Still their deeds live forth in songs" - Metal_Treasure

7 You Suffer - Napalm Death

Shortest song of all time - LightningStrike

There are actually no lyrics in this song. "You suffer... but why? " is actually an implied part of the text, the lyrics are just a scream. Not the worst metal song I've ever heard. - IronSabbathPriest

This has to be the shortest song ever - it is precisely 1.316 seconds long, roughly 0:01 minutes. One second! - Metal_Treasure

Every website says the lyrics are "You suffer but why", but all I hear is "You! " - Martin_Canine

5 seconds of random guitar playing. - Martin_Canine

23 36 - System of a Down
