Top 10 Songs that Don't Belong in the List Called "Worst 80s Songs"


The Top Ten

1 Fade to Black - Metallica

@christan, I have a question relating to the title of this list considering what songs are allowed on it. Since it just says songs that don't belong on the Worst 80s Songs list, doesn't that mean that any song we don't think should go on that list (either because it's a good song and doesn't deserve to be there or for any other reason like when it came out, etc) could be added here even if it's not on the Worst 80s Songs list but just doesn't belong on it? Or is this list only meant for songs that are actually on the Worst 80s Songs list and don't deserve it? Just wanted to clarify. Also Christan, if you reply to this, please make it in a separate comment because most of the time I can't see comment replies. - Element119

It was number 1 and I bet Metal Haters had something to do with that but this song doesn't even belong on that list why/ because its one of Metallica's best songs - christangrant

One of the most messed up lists I've ever seen on this site. - Metal_Treasure

@Element I added other songs to this list for a reason "Trolls" - christangrant

2 Master of Puppets - Metallica
3 One - Metallica
4 Symphony of Destruction - Megadeth

It's not even from the 80's its from the 90's which proves the idiotic person who added it knows nothing about music - christangrant

5 Sweet Child O'Mine - Guns N' Roses

Not much of a fan of this song, but that doesn't mean it's an awful song. I just personally don't care much about it. Anyway, it doesn't deserve such a high spot on the Worst 80s Songs list. - Element119

6 Pour Some Sugar On Me - Def Leppard

Great song and one of the best from Def Leppard. I really don't get how such good songs stayed so high on that list since it did get decent attention. - Element119

7 Eye of the Tiger - Survivor
8 Bad - Michael Jackson
9 Billie Jean - Michael Jackson
10 Thriller - Michael Jackson

The Contenders

13 Straight Outta Compton - N.W.A.
14 When Doves Cry - Prince
15 Turbo Lover - Judas Priest
16 Heaven and Hell - Black Sabbath

Greatest metal song ever. - 445956

18 Never Say Goodbye - Bon Jovi
19 Money for Nothing - Dire Straits
20 Don't Stop Believin' - Journey

Pretty good Bon Jovi song. - Element119

24 What About Love? - Heart
25 Never - Heart
26 Nothin' at All - Heart
27 All I Wanna Do is Make Love to You - Heart

Ok I understand why people hate this song but I think its alright - christangrant

29 Back in Black - AC/DC
30 Another One Bites the Dust - Queen
31 Paradise City - Guns N' Roses
32 Welcome to the Jungle - Guns N' Roses
33 Seek & Destroy - Metallica
34 Jump - Van Halen

@jack2244, it's an overrated song, true, but it's really not that bad or anything. Obviously there are many better Van Halen songs that deserved the attention Jump got but weren't given nearly as much attention by people, and there are much better songs in general than Jump. So I would say it's overrated but still a decent song. But even if you don't like the song, I would say it's at least better quality than many other 80s songs (sort of like my comment on Sweet Child O' Mine, while I may not like the song much, that doesn't mean it's a bad song). - Element119

35 Panama - Van Halen
36 Hot for Teacher - Van Halen
37 You Shook Me All Night Long - AC/DC
38 Hells Bells - AC/DC
39 For Those About to Rock (We Salute You) - AC/DC
40 Livin' on a Prayer - Bon Jovi
41 Shoot to Thrill - AC/DC
42 Rock and Roll Ain't Noise Pollution - AC/DC
43 Crazy Train - Ozzy Osbourne
44 The Final Countdown - Europe
45 What Do You Do for Money Honey - AC/DC
46 Neon Knights - Black Sabbath
47 Rainbow in the Dark - Dio
48 Peace Sells - Megadeth
49 In My Darkest Hour - Megadeth
50 Talk Dirty to Me - Poison

It's really not that bad. Good for Poison, and not a bad song at all. It's not really that impressive either but definitely not one of the worst 80's songs, there's a whole lot worse than this. - Element119
