Top Ten Songs That Are Better Than the Artists Signature Song


The Contenders: Page 2

21 Welcome to the Jungle > Sweet Child O'Mine - Guns'n'roses
22 Born to Run > Dancing in the Dark - Bruce Springsteen
23 When the Levee Breaks > Black Dog - Led Zeppelin

Levee is a much better song but hard to do live. - BobG

24 Heaven and Hell > Iron Man - Black Sabbath
25 Paranoid Android > Creep - Radiohead
26 Thorn > Mirror Mirror - Blind Guardian

Mirror Mirror and The Bard's Song are their signature songs. The Bard's Song is a great acoustic ballad but there's not much 'metal' in it so I don't count it.

However, Blind Guardian have at least 20 songs better than Mirror Mirror. I've chosen Thorn because it's from the same album and people didn't notice this song. 'Into The Storm', 'Time Stands Still', 'Nightfall' and 'The Curse Of Feanor' from the same album are also better. And many songs from other albums.
I guess Mirror Mirror became most popular because it's somewhat playful, not very heavy and complex, and more people can easily relate to it. - Metal_Treasure

27 Rape Me > Smells Like Teen Spirit - Nirvana
28 Some Might Say > Wonderwall - Oasis

I can name like 20 songs by Oasis that are much better than Wonderwall - Quart

29 Knights of Cydonia > Uprising - Muse
30 Say It Ain't So > Buddy Holly - Weezer
31 21 Guns > Boulevard of Broken Dreams - Green Day
32 Ghosts N' Stuff > Strobe - Deadmau5
33 Morphine Child > Hall of the Mountain King - Savatage
34 Don't Look Back In Anger > Wonderwall - Oasis
35 Lock Up Your Daughters > Merry Xmas Everybody - Slade V 1 Comment
36 Monster > Decode - Paramore
37 Mouth for War > Walk - Pantera

Mouth for War is better guys. Even the riff is better. - Metal_Treasure

38 A Day In the Life > Hey Jude - The Beatles
39 Crying In the Rain > Is This Love - Whitesnake
40 Numb > in the End - Linkin Park
