Most Underrated Metallica Songs


The Contenders: Page 2

21 Eye of the Beholder

Really good song from probably my favourite Metallica album, give it a listen.

Has one of the best riffs of Metallica and is highly underrated, last time played 14 of july 1989...

Good song not underrated but a good song.

22 No Remorse

Great song. The riff starting around 50 seconds and the chorus riff are so awesome! Pure thrash song that never gets enough credit as it deserves

Not a bad song but not a good song. It's not underrated but it's not overrated.

The last two minutes of this song are just wild

23 The Thing That Should Not Be

Such a great song, I never knew why it was always said to be a poor song. Not to mention it's based on literature it's also a masterpiece and highly underrated.

Such a good song, it may be repetitive but who cares?

The only reason this song is underrated is because it would probably summon Cthulhu if it was played too often

... Brilliantly evil

This is 2nd Best from Master Of Puppets album!

24 I Disappear

Such a great song but because it wasn't released on an album its not heard enough

25 Harvester of Sorrow

I don't think people think this is underrated. But it's a great jam! Number 2 on this album! Second to one!

26 Don't Tread on Me

I listen to this song almost every day. It's so good yet nobody likes it. I've been riding in the car with friends and we'll be listening to the black album and they'll skip this song! It's such a good song and nobody likes it! Drives me nuts!

27 Phantom Lord

Apparently, people don't understand the concept of "underrated. " Fade to Black is NOT underrated. Phantom Lord is beyond underrated, no one seems to like it! The into is mind-blowing, I get chills every time!

This is easily my favorite track on Kill em All. The main riff is just amazing. And the lyrics are just awesome

The reason nobody likes this song is cause IT SUCKS!

28 Of Wolf and Man

This song is unnoticed just like every other song on this album that wasn't considered one of the Big Five. This is a great song, and one of my favorites in the album.

A great song! But not underrated.

BEST SONG ON THE BLACK ALBUM, except for Enter Sandman.

"SO SEEK THE WOLF IN THYSELF! " - MetallicaForever

29 The Unforgiven III

Great song! Definitely underrated!

This an awesome intrumental from death magnetic. - dragon13304

The last minute and a half is why it gets my vote

The 4th best instrumental by Metallica.

Guitar is awesome.

31 No Leaf Clover

Reminds me of a "Whiskey In The Jar" type of song by them... in my opinion this is a top 20 Metallica song at least

Should be WAY HIGHER like 12 because this song...A song to show they can change sound and still be epic!

32 Hero of the Day

Its underrated because its always overshadowed by the other tracks on the album in my opinion this is the best song from Load - christangrant

My favorite song by them. So under the radar.

Not great not good. Kinda in between.

33 Wherever I May Roam

My second favorite Metallica song!

Wherever I May Roam is one of the greatest songs of the Black Album and Metallica as Band, yeah I know it have comercial and critical succes, but among fans it�'s most common hear about Fade to Black, Blackened or Hit the lights than Wherever I May Roam

How Orion is Underrated? Many people say it�'s the "best intrumental song in Metal"

34 The Day That Never Comes

Solo and power cord drop! One of the best exhibitions of musicianship of any album

Underrated by far!

Great song!

35 Motorbreath

Kill 'Em All is Metallicas greatest album. I just wish more people could understand that

It's a underrated song but ride the lightning is the best Metallica album!

36 Shoot Me Again
37 Frantic

I just listened to the whole album today! This song at first I hated it! But after listening to it again I realized that it's a good song!

Although it's from the st Anger album, which is not supposed to be a very good Metallica album, frantic is a good song. Not awesome. Just good and unique

38 That Was Just Your Life

I think it's rating is just right.

39 Metal Militia

This song gets hate as being one of the worst on Kill em' All. I have no idea why. The opening is up there with Creeping Death. And I don't get why everyone hates the chorus... It's killer AF.
