Best Songs on Metallica's Hardwired... to Self Destruct


The Top Ten

1 Spit Out The Bone

Killer, killer, killer riffs! Damn isn't this the most hardcore, raging song from Hardwired To Self Destruct. I can feel my blood pumping fast each time I hear this song. Kirk and Robert Trujillo have done amazingly well and this song is easily Metallica's all time top 10. - SteveKing

Loved the song as soon as I heard the riffs at the beginning of the song.

"Hardwired" used to be number 1 until this song came out - Metalthomas

LOVE IT! Learned it within 2 days, and it sounds badass on my KH-202 with a Peavey Vypyr VIP 1.

2 Moth into Flame

This song is a lot better than Hardwired in my opinion, but both are amazing. Yet I don't know why this list was created so soon, only 2 songs have been released. - Kytotoxic

3 Halo on Fire

The Last part of this song (which includes the epic solo), is one of the best things Metallica has made in a very very long time... - Kaustab

This is the closest thing the album has to a ballad, and it's awesome.

This song should be next to Spit Out The Bone in my opinion.

4 Atlas, Rise

Best Metallica song in years in my opinion

Outstanding... The chorus is killer and the harmony iron maidenish part is amazing

5 Hardwired Hardwired

Why are you making this list and another for Korn's The Serenity Of Suffering, even they neither of them came out yet? - NikBrusk

This song reminds me of My Apocalypse from Death Magnetic. - IronSabbathPriest

It's their best song should be number 1

"Hardwired... to Self Destruct"...sounds like something that no TopTenner wants to be. - PositronWildhawk

6 Dream No More

Reminds me of Sad But True and The Thing That Should not be

7 Now That We're Dead

I've listened to this song a lot. The solos are badass and Lars has done a great job with the drums. I love the chorus! "Now that we're dead, my dear. We can be together. Now that we're dead, my dear. We can live forever" - Zizz

This is the best song on the album, followed by Spit Out The Bone

8 Here Comes Revenge

This album has some amazing songs like moth, spit, hardwired, atlas and halo, however this is a real grower and should be higher than its current position.

Sounds like a song from Megadeth's Countdown to Extinction, except James Hetfield collaborated with the band and he ends up singing.

How is this only 10? The riffs are some of the best on the album and the verse lyrics are so dark and sinister. This should at least be 6th!

9 ManUNkind

A tribute to the black metal band Mayhem or should I say, a tribute of disappointment. The lyrics "Blind leads Blind" will tell you enough. Faith in ManUNkind is way to describe Mayhem's deep belief in their opposite way of looking at life. - SytachiRed

10 Am I Savage?

The Contenders

11 Murder One

Somewhat like Megadeth's Captive Honour but without the court of the king (not crimson king).

A great song. Should be higher. Best of the album!

12 Confusion

Amazing album...Confusion could be one of those underrated songs,

This should be a lot higher. Well done Metallica

This should be top 5 at the very least

13 Lords of Summer Lords of Summer

I hope this goes higher up on the list because it really is one of the best in my opinion, I think they improved massively upon the original back in 2014 and James' vocals are the best on the album here - Derrick_Fox

14 Remember Tomorrow

Awesome cover

15 When a Blind Man Cries

Not a actual song on the album, but this cover is starts slow but gets heavier near the end. That's why I like this song cover. - Mumbizz01
