The Top Ten

1 Baba O'Riley - The Who
2 I Can't Get No Satisfaction - The Rolling Stones
3 Perfect Strangers - Deep Purple
4 Immigrant Song - Led Zeppelin
5 Damien - Iced Earth
6 The End - The Doors
7 Eye of the Tiger - Survivor
8 Crimson King - Demons & Wizards
9 Human Insecticide - Annihilator

Jeff Waters often puts 2-3 mindblowing solos in one song but here he decided to go with no solo. Nevertheless, it sounds great - its speed and guitar work are awesome. This is one of my favorite Annihilator songs. - Metal_Treasure

10 I Want You (She's So Heavy) - The Beatles

The Contenders

11 House of the Rising Sun - The Animals
12 Chance - Savatage
13 Fortunate Son - Creedence Clearwater Revival
14 How the Gods Kill - Danzig
15 White Skies - Moonspell
16 I'm Waiting for The Man - Velvet Underground
17 Age of Shadows - Ayreon

This song is unique musically and lyrically - 8 great metal singers sing it and it's about an alien nation that needs help and Ayreon used ascii codes for the chorus:
Zero (one) one (zero) one (zero) zero (zero) - [this translates to 'help help']
Off (on) on (off) off (on) on (off) - [this translates to 'forever']
No (yeah) yeah (yeah) no (no) yeah (yeah) - [this translates to 'sos sos'] - Metal_Treasure

18 Another One Bites the Dust - Queen
19 Distant Memories - Blind Guardian

A very pleasant song which they released as a bonus track because I guess they decided it's too soft for a metal album (Beyond The Red Mirror, 2015). - Metal_Treasure

20 Black Hell - Danzig
21 Sirens - Savatage

The song sample is wrong - it's not Savatage, it's a cover I don't like. The original is amazing. - Metal_Treasure

22 Son of the Last Breath - Grand Magus

The singer's got one of the lowest voices in metal (Janne 'JB' Christoffersson). - Metal_Treasure

23 St. Anger - Metallica
