The Top Ten

R.I.P Chuck Berry - hayden3009

2 Dante's Inferno - Iced Earth

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

3 Dracula - Iced Earth

Vlad III Dracula, a historical figure - Metal_Treasure

4 I Feel Like a Bullet (In the Gun of Robert Ford) - Elton John

Known as the "Dirty Little Coward" that killed his gang leader Jesse James. Good Song and lyrics

5 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

I saw a parody of this called Rock Me I'm A Danish.
P.S This song is amazing! - RiverClanRocks

Quotes from the lyrics:

He was a Punker
He had debts, for he drank
But all the women loved him
(And they shouted):
Come and rock me Amadeus
Baby, baby, do it to me, rock me

He was a Superstar
He was popular
He was so exalted
Excatly that was his flair

He was a virtuoso
Was a rock idol
Women loved his punk - Metal_Treasure

6 The Ballad of John and Yoko - The Beatles
7 Bette Davis Eyes - Kim Carnes
8 Alexander the Great - Iron Maiden
9 Vincent - Don McLean
10 Dinner with Gershwin - Donna Summer

11 Calling Elvis - Dire Straits
12 Just Like Jesse James - Cher

Jesse James - he was an American outlaw, gang leader, bank robber, train robber, and murderer from the state of Missouri and the most famous member of the James-Younger Gang. - Metal_Treasure

13 Mr. Crowley - Ozzy Osbourne
14 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:

Russia's greatest love machine" - Metal_Treasure
