Top 10 Songs that Were the First Song You Heard by a Music Artist


The Contenders: Page 3

41 Let There Be Rock - AC/DC

Not their best song but it was good enough to make me like this band. A friend played the video for me. - Metal_Treasure

42 Iron Man - Black Sabbath V 1 Comment
43 Here Comes Your Man - Pixies
44 Bring Me to Life - Evanescence
45 Angry Again - Megadeth

The first Megadeth song I heard - christangrant

46 Oh, In the Sky - Frank Zappa
47 The Mission - Queensryche
48 Walking in the Air - Nightwish

When I was looking for the original song by Howard Blake after watching that sad short movie The Snowman. It was a few years ago, but already in the 2010s, then they became my all time favorite band. I absolutely adore their version of the song. It is magical, enchanting, like all of their work. - Martin_Canine

49 Arriving Somewhere but Not Here - Porcupine Tree
50 All I Want for Christmas - Theocracy

Yes, this was the 1st song I heard by this awesome metal band. A friend from the US sent me the link just to say Merry X-mas (in Dec 2013).
I didn't know they were a metal band but the sound of this odd X-mas song made me think they were a metal band - this song had many metal elements. I was right. And discovered Theocracy. - Metal_Treasure

51 Down with the Sickness - Disturbed

The first Disturbed song I heard and I still like it even though it is overrated - christangrant

52 In Bloom - Nirvana
53 The Pursuit of Vikings - Amon Amarth

This song even got me into death metal. - Metal_Treasure

54 Rising Force - Yngwie Malmsteen

It's solo blew my mind - still a favorite song by Yngwie. - Metal_Treasure

55 Angel of Death - Slayer
56 Word Up! - Korn
57 Cowboys from Hell - Pantera
58 Blind - Korn
59 Madhouse - Anthrax
60 All My Loving - The Beatles

The first song they played at the monumental and historic first Ed Sullivan Show appearance. Most likely this is the song "first heard" by people over any other in history. Over 70,000,000 people were watching.
