The Top Ten

1 Master of Puppets Master of Puppets

master of puppets is their best song PERIOD!
also the thing that should not be SHOULD BE in a higher rank

Most definitely, and impossible to listen to without either air guitaring or air-drumming. Go on, try it - ninapalmer

definitely the best song on the album.. it sounds so much better live.

Its amazing that every riff in this song sounds great.

2 Welcome Home (Sanitarium) Welcome Home (Sanitarium)

Beat song on the album, tied with master of puppets. If there was a tied first then it would be there. It starts nicely and calm, and stays catchy all the way through

In my opinion, the best song on the album! I love this song so much! I love the lyrics to this song. Everything about this song is so amazing. One of my favorite Metallica songs of all-time!

Surprisingly I like welcome home sanitarium and Orion better than master of puppets! But these are all classics

A True Masterpiece. Sad song, great Solo

3 Battery Battery

Alongside Fight fire with fire, this song works as a perfect intro to MOP. An alluring acoustic intro that leads into a rhythm guitarists first road block, Battery! Fast paced with an energy that mimics the title, battery just gets you pumped for the rest of the album.

Best song from metallica let alone master of puppets not many peoplk have heard it because it is hidden behind the other very overated songs overall best songs hands down

Probably the best thing that anyone in existence has ever created...

One of the very few songs from Master of Puppets I like... along with Disposable Heroes, and Damage, inc. I mean come on, the title track is so overrated. The Thing That Should Not Be, and Lepper Messiah are decent, but this song is a thrash metal classic.

4 Disposable Heroes Disposable Heroes

One of Metallica's heaviest, fastest, and, sadly, most underrated songs. It has excellent, meaningful lyrics about young men going to war against their will. Also, The Thing That Should Not Be needs to be higher.

Giving this my vote because it is so underrated, otherwise I really think Disposable heroes, Welcome Home, Master and Battery are equally good. But this song has easily the best lyrics of all the songs, great and bad ass riffs too.

Oh please, stop voting Master: I know it's a good song, one of the best, of course, but there's more better than that one! Why don't Disposable Heroes? The lyric is fantastic, and it is truly a masterpiece!

This song is ridiculously amazing

5 Orion Orion

This is my favourite Metallica album so it was really hard to choose my favourite, they are all good songs but for me Orion is a whisker in front of the rest, it is so relaxing, and has meaningful music - JULESMETAL13

Metallica's Best Instrumental ever!

I think this is the absolute best song in the album

This is my favourite song of all time

6 Damage, Inc. Damage, Inc.

You know, this song won't remain on this position one you people listen to it carefully... It will definitely come in top 3 if you do so. Song is dark with violent riffs n lyrics which are accompanied by cliff's heavy bass and kirk's great solo. Lars's drumming is also good.

Great intro, heavy and fast as all thrash should be and a very good solo. Underrated awesome song

What?! This song is supposed to be in top 5. Heaviest Song in MOP

Why is this so low? Sure it's not the best but dang! It's better than battery.

7 The Thing That Should Not Be The Thing That Should Not Be

No other guitarist in the world could have created that awesome solo. What I mean is it really brings out the moods of the song. Great song to frighten away pop fans. On the whole this song is complete package. Comes right after welcome home and master. And gets fifth spot on my favorite Metallica songs. Hats off to Mr. Hetfield who created those eternal riffs. Also this is Mr. Hetfield's favorite song.

This song is best... Enough with the same songs always being the best! This song has it all great vocals, lyrics, guitar etc.

Kick ass song! Really heavy creepy intro, perfect lyrics. Just a masterpiece of a song. On of the best ones ever written to be honest. One of their heaviest songs on their heaviest album. This and leper messiah are the best, but this one first. Too underrated, better than one, for whom the bell tolls, and all the clich├ęs!

What is this masterpiece doing at the bottom of this list?

8 Leper Messiah Leper Messiah

One of the best songs on the album. Bow to Leper Messiah! This song rules!

So underrated! Has a very nice groove to it and good lyrics as well. The second half is also simply amazing.

This and Damage, Inc. should be above the thing that should not be. Also what is. ? - LMARINE

Kick ass groovy riff
