The Top Ten

1 Roll Over Beethoven - Chuck Berry Roll Over Beethoven - Chuck Berry
2 Dante's Inferno - Iced Earth Dante's Inferno - Iced Earth

Dante - a major Italian poet of the late Middle Ages. - Metal_Treasure

3 Dracula - Iced Earth Dracula - Iced Earth

Vlad III Dracula, a historical figure - Metal_Treasure

4 Rock Me Amadeus - Falco Rock Me Amadeus - Falco

One hit wonder - a funny and catchy song about Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.

As a metalhead, I have to admit I consider this song a guilty pleasure. I heard this song for the first time in 2014 - it was a cover done by the metal band Edguy.

Then I found 2 versions done by Falco - in German and English. Lyrics are different but cool - you can find the German version with English subs. - Metal_Treasure

The Contenders

11 Rasputin - Boney M Rasputin - Boney M

This has to be the catchiest song of all time. IT WON'T LEAVE MY HEAD. - IronSabbathPriest

I would recommend 2 metal covers (I heard of this song thanks to them):
Ten Masked Men - Rasputin (death metal cover);
Turisas - Rasputin.

Both music and lyrics are really catchy:
"Ra Ra Rasputin, lover of the Russian Queen". - Metal_Treasure

A semi-biographical song about Grigori Rasputin.

"RA RA RASPUTIN:
Lover of the Russian queen -
There was a cat that really was gone.
