Most Underrated Metallica Songs


The Contenders: Page 2

21 Fixxxer

Who is voting on this list? None of the top songs are 'underrated' by any means. They are some of Metallica's most popular songs. Welcome Home is #9. Really? I've always thought Fixxxer was an undiscovered gem, especially lyrically. Give this song a careful listen. Definitely Metallica's most underrated song.

Best song off of ReLoad. The chorus is filled with a lot of pain. My only question is why they never play it live, and it's always just a jam version? - MetallicaForever

This song just says a lot to me and I really love it

Terrible song. Why start an album with a song like fuel and end it with fixxxer!? It's not a good song!

22 I Disappear

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

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 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.

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!

One of my favorites

26 Whiplash

Yes I find this song way underrated. It's my dads favorite song and it's underrated! The solo is one of Kirk hammetts best! It's just an all around great song!

27 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!

I just love that intro.

28 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

29 The Unforgiven III

Great song! Definitely underrated!

Yes very underrated!


30 No Leaf Clover

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

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

Super underrated song, one of my favorites. Most casual fans probably havn't heard it because it was on their live album and isn't played much these days. Awesome song though something about Metal riffs and orchestral music just fit so well together this song is a great example of that. Check it out if you havn't already.

Absokutely best song for me, really.

31 King Nothing

This should be much higher than 17. Great song, great lyrics, great chorus. One my favourite Metallica songs.

This is my favorite Metallica song! And it's very underrated! Makes me sick!

Every song from Load is underrated, just because it's not Thrash

Dig for gold
Dig for fame
Are you pacified?

32 Suicide & Redemption

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.

33 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.

34 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!

35 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!

36 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!

37 The Unforgiven

It's not underrated but it's my least favorite of the unforgivens. Sorry if this makes anyone mad.

38 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.
