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


The Contenders: Page 4

61 Blind - Korn
62 Wherever I May Roam - Metallica

I liked it very much and got interested in Metallica but later discovered better songs. I still like it, especially the lyrics - one of the best in metal. - Metal_Treasure

63 Breaking the Law - Judas Priest

The first Judas Priest song I heard and I still like it. - SteelCity99

64 Orbital Elements - Obscura

So so beautiful. Still love it. - Metal_Treasure

65 Mana - Equilibrium

A friend and metalhead recommended me this song - truly amazing and beautiful. One of the best metal instrumentals created after 2000. - Metal_Treasure

66 All for One - Primal Fear
67 Hall of the Mountain King - Savatage
68 Raining Blood - Slayer
69 Zombie Woof - Frank Zappa
70 Cold as Ice - Foreigner

Later liked Urgent more but this one still moves me. - Metal_Treasure

71 Arriving Nowhere but Here - Porcupine Tree
72 N.Y. State of Mind - Nas
73 Pardon Me - Incubus
74 Daddy - Korn
75 The Beast Within - Overkill

The first time I listened to Overkill, I was just going through some of their discography, and the first one was their demo, Power in Black. I was going through the songs individually rather than the whole album and I accidentally skipped the first song, Overkill, and listened to this song instead first. It's not my favorite Overkill song, but I still do listen to it sometimes. - Element119

76 Jump - Van Halen

I absolutely love Van Halen's music, and Jump was probably the first song I heard by them. I actually never really took an interest in them based on this song before I heard their other music though (I am not much of a fan of synthesizers and such even though this is a pretty good song). But one day on the radio, I heard Dance the Night Away, which led me to listen to some of their other music, which I loved very much. Jump is not my favorite Van Halen song, though it is a pretty good song. - Element119

77 Keelhauled - Alestorm
78 You Got Another Thing Comin' - Judas Priest
79 Zeit Für Optimisten - Silbermond

On a sampler back in 2005 when I was 8 or 9, about ten years before I became a fan. I remember I listened to the song a few times, but I think back then it was too rock-ish for me. Nowadays, I think this is a perfect example of one of their older tracks. A rebelious anthem against all the pessimism in modern society, with an energetic and catchy performance by the entire band. - Martin_Canine

80 Shot in the Dark - Within Temptation

After having bought all of the Nightwish albums I wanted more of that style so I bought a random Within Temptation album, which was The Unforgiving. The first full song on it was Shot in the Dark, after the spoken intro. I think this song has much power and an addictive chorus, and is one of my favorite by them, but I also bought that one album that sounds entirely different than the rest of their discography. - Martin_Canine
