Top Ten Metal Songs of 2008


The Top Ten

1 Metallica - The Day that Never Comes

This and nightmare are the 2 best songs of 2008 not only metal but overall

This is better than that slipknot song, I just don't know why slipknot got votes.

This is way more metal than Linkin park and Slipknot

No other band has a stand against Metallica

2 All Nightmare Long - Metallica

best material from Metallica since 1988... totally the best metal song from 2008.

New Metallica at their best. Brings you back to '80.

3 Blooddrunk - Children of Bodom

Blooddrunk is simply awesome, how could this be so low on the list guys?
The opening keyboards and later guitar riffs are epic!
Vote for this all death metalheads!

4 The End of Heartache - Killswitch Engage

This song came out 2004

5 Psychosocial - Slipknot
6 Linkin Park - Bleed It Out

It should be in here, ever since it was also released with Given Up in 2007/2008.

7 Given Up - Linkin Park

This should be higher, screams, guitar riffs, drums, epic vocals, and everything! This deserves to be higher, probably, THE FIRST!

Well of course, an 18-second scream metal song must be on the list, and it was released in 2007-2008.

8 Metallica - Cyanide

This is a much more musical, creative, powerful, and all-around well-written song than The Day that Never Comes, and certainly more so than Psychosocial. Best song on the album and possibly best song of the year, metal or not.

9 Dead Memories - Slipkot

Best of the best songs, so powerful lyrics, great guitar riffs infact, this song is perfect

I love this song, so melodic and heavy at the same timeā€¦ and the fact that the video refert to the seven hauses of S. Teresa of Avila it's just amazing. If nor #1, sure must be #2

10 Heroes of Our Time - Dragonforce

The Contenders

11 All Hope is Gone - Slipknot
12 Suicide & Redemption - Metallica
13 They Say - Scars On Broadway
14 The Unforgiven III - Metallica
15 Until the End - Avenged Sevenfold
16 The Last Journey Home - Dragonforce
17 Qwerty - Linkin Park
18 Feed the Beast - Bonded by Blood

Linkin Park isn't metal. Just saying.

19 Mana - Equilibrium
20 Blut Im Auge - Equilibrium
21 Tears Don't Fall - Bullet for My Valentine
22 More Than Meets the Eye - Testament
23 Nostradamus - Judas Priest
24 Snuff - Slipknot
25 Bleed - Meshuggah
