Top Metallica Guitar Solos


The Contenders: Page 2

21 The Judas Kiss - Death Magnetic

God! No one's heard this solo or what! This is one of the best solos kirk has ever made but it is not even MENTIONED in the list! Listen to this solo first before taking your votes and you'll will realize why I'm rambling so much about this solo. This easily beats the likes of Dyer's Eve and The Four Horsemen. In fact, it rises a notch above even MOP and Nothing else matters. That's how good this solo is. Being a hardcore metallica fan myself, it's time we stop focussing our mind on the 'old' songs and look at how good some of the new ones are.

22 The Unforgiven II - Metallica
23 Frayed Ends Of Sanity - ...And Justice For All

On of the my favorite solo

Best solo on justice

24 Fight Fire With Fire - Ride the Lightning
25 Disposable Heroes - Master of Puppets

Simply epic. The scale change makes this much more awesome than any of the others on Master of Puppets, except possibly for Master or Sanitarium.

26 My Friend of Misery - Metallica

One of my favorite Metallica solos easily. Maybe not top 10 but definitely not 39. This kicks ass and goes on and on. It's different from most of their solos and partly why it's so cool. It's far down on the track listing and maybe a lot of people haven't heard it I guess.

27 Suicide and Redemption - Death Magnetic

Suicide and Redemption maybe shouldn't be number one, but it should definitely be in the top ten. The three solos with the melodic start before the song rushes to double time, then after Hetfield comes out crashing with his solo, Hammett wah's it up a notch for the big finale.

28 The God That Failed - Metallica

The solo in this song is amazing... I love the short pause and the part after.

29 The Thing That Should Not Be - Metallica


What the heck? This song has the best build up and solo ever right behind Dyers Eve.
My only problem is that there's not more of it

30 Sad But True - Metallica
31 Hero Of The Day - Load
32 Eye of the Beholder - ...And Justice for All

This song's solo is a killer

Best solo in ajfa

33 Welcome Home (Sanitarium) - Master of Puppets

Why is that song on 22, for Me it's the best song from Metallica.
Every true Fan loves that Song!

34 ...And Justice For All - ...And Justice For All

Best Metallica guitar solo it starts slow then goes crazy. Perfect

35 Enter Sandman - Metallica

How the hell this is not even in the list... I wanna remember everyone ENTER SANDMAN IS THE ONLY METALLICA SONG WHICH APPEARS ON THE LIST OF ROLLING STONE'S 500 GREATEST SONGS OF ALL TIME... And believe me the solo is equally great, one of their best

36 To Live Is To Die - ...And Justice For All

This solo has got soul. This is fantastic melody and it shows real feelings.

A masterpiece

37 Wherever I May Roam - Metallica

So underrated

38 The Shortest Straw - ...And Justice For All

The entire album has fantastic solos and this track is no exception. Gives off a bit of a Van Halen vibe. The intro part of the solo is so strange but that's a good thing.

39 The Struggle Within - Metallica
40 2 X 4 - Load

How is this not near the top 10? It's mesmerising.
