Top Ten Songs that are Called Heavy Metal but are Not


The Contenders: Page 2

21 Whole Lotta Rosie - AC/DC

Hard Rock, Not Metal easy to distinguish the two.

22 Girls, Girls, Girls - Mötley Crüe
23 Talk Dirty to Me - Poison
24 God of Thunder - Kiss
25 Barracuda - Heart

Again, far too musical, aesthetically pleasing, instrumentally and vocally engrossing and structurally sound to EVER be mistaken for metal.

26 Cum on Feel the Noize - Quiet Riot V 2 Comments
27 Darling Nikki - Prince

Haha, who would confuse this with metal? - Metal_Treasure

28 Hail to the King - Avenged Sevenfold V 1 Comment

30 Walk All Over You - AC/DC
31 Panama - Van Halen
32 Hot for Teacher - Van Halen
33 I'm a Rebel - Accept

Pure hard rock, I dunno why it's considered to be heavy metal everywhere... - somekindofaguy

34 Caught in the Middle - Dio

It's one of the least metal songs by Dio - somekindofaguy

35 The Wizard - Black Sabbath

It has really nothing to do with metal... harmonica gives a blues sounding to it, but the rest it's a hard rock song - somekindofaguy

36 You've Got Another Thing Comin' - Judas Priest

Just Like I'm a Rebel, it's pure hard rock... I dunno how it sounds like metal to some people... - somekindofaguy

37 Sheer Heart Attack - Queen

Sex Pistols sounding punk rock - somekindofaguy
