Underrated Heavy Metal Songs


The Top Ten

1 Of Wolf and Man - Metallica

One of my favourite Metallica songs, this song about shape-shifters is better than "Enter Sandman" in my humble opinion. - truckturner

2 A Touch of Evil - Judas Priest

It's no "Breaking the Law" or "You've Got Another Thing Comin'", but this is one of Priest's best. - truckturner

3 Balls to the Wall - Accept

Wonderfully ridiculous German metal song. The lyrics get absurdly grotesque after a while and you can't help but smile while head-banging. - truckturner

4 Wild Child - W.A.S.P.

W.A.S.P appear to be a love them or hate them metal band, and the music has been somewhat overshadowed by their 80s stage antics. But they've got some great songs, especially this one. It's a true metal anthem. - truckturner

5 99 Ways to Die - Megadeth

My favourite Megadeth song, strangely I appear to be on an island alone on this one. - truckturner

6 The Price - Twisted Sister

An overlooked metal power ballad. It's almost as good as their two best-known songs. - truckturner

7 Hard Rock Hallelujah - Lordi

Finnish monster metal Eurovision winner. It's cheesy, absurd, and the best thing to happen to the Eurovision Song Contest. - truckturner

8 Till the End - Motorhead

The standout song from Motorhead's final album, Lemmy's vocals were never pristine and are pretty shot here, but...that's oddly right for Lemmy and Motorhead anyway. A rare metal ballad and quite a powerful one. - truckturner

9 I Disappear - Metallica
10 Montsegur (2015 Remastered Version) - Iron Maiden

One of my favourite modern Maiden songs, this is super catchy. - truckturner

The Contenders

11 Stars - Hear 'n' Aid

The less well-known, heavy metal all-star charity effort. Led by Ronnie James Dio and Vivian Campbell, this OTT 7 minute metal anthem features a 2 1/2 minute guitar solo, multiple guitarists, multiple singers (Dio and Halford among them), and even members of Spinal Tap. - truckturner

12 Slave to the Grind - Skid Row
13 The Wicker Man - Iron Maiden
14 Damage, Inc. - Metallica

Amazing song! - Userguy44

15 My Last Words - Megadeth
16 Afraid to Shoot Strangers - Iron Maiden
17 Mindtraveller - Falconer

One Of my favorite songs Of All Time and hardly anyone knows about it!

18 Road to Nowhere - Ozzy Osbourne
