Top Ten Songs That Are Better Than the Artists Signature Song


The Contenders: Page 2

21 Heaven and Hell > Iron Man - Black Sabbath
22 Paranoid Android > Creep - Radiohead
23 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

24 Rape Me > Smells Like Teen Spirit - Nirvana
25 Some Might Say > Wonderwall - Oasis

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

26 Knights of Cydonia > Uprising - Muse
27 Heaven and Hell > Paranoid - Black Sabbath

Heaven and Hell - better riff, better vox, better lyrics; overall - more complex song. - Metal_Treasure

28 Say It Ain't So > Buddy Holly - Weezer
29 Ghosts N' Stuff > Strobe - Deadmau5
30 Morphine Child > Hall of the Mountain King - Savatage
31 Don't Look Back In Anger > Wonderwall - Oasis
32 Mouth for War > Walk - Pantera

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