Top Ten Worst 80s Metallica Songs

This list is just the Worst Metallica songs made in the 80s. No songs from the Black Album are Allowed.

The Top Ten

1 Escape

Easily their worst song from the 80's. In fact, one of their weakest tracks from all their studio albums.

Only reason is because they were forced to have a radio friendly song in the record.

Actually a great song

2 Leper Messiah

None of the songs on this list is bad but this song is my least favorite on this list - christangrant

3 The Thing that Should Not Be

I actually really love this song. Hell, sometimes while I listen to this, I always think it might be my favorite song from this album, even over Master Of Puppets itself.

4 Damage Inc.
5 The Shortest Straw

They never had a bad 80's song. - gemcloben

6 Eye of the Beholder

But. This song is good. - LizardKing99

7 No Remorse
8 Jump in the Fire

This Isn't even a Thrash Song and if this is a Thrash Metal song than Fuel from Reload is also a Thrash Metal song - christangrant

9 Metal Militia

Worst song of a great album, I hate this !

10 The Frayed Ends of Sanity

The Contenders

11 Master of Puppets

Very overrated. May be the most overrated "thrash" song. When I first heard it, it wasn't as good as I expected it to be. Later I started to like it. I liked it for a while, and then I got tired of it really fast. People think of it as thrash metal. I just don't get it. It sounds more progressive than thrash. Enter Sandman is the most popular choice for Metallica's most overrated songs. When people think of early, good old thrash days of Metallica before the self-titled album, the first song that pops into people's heads... is unfortunately Master of Puppets. And because of that, it's now one of my least favorites. I don't understand how you "metalheads" would choose Master of Puppets over Ride the Lightning.

Enter sandman was from the 90's idiot

12 Harvester of Sorrow

It's overrated, but not bad at all. - IronSabbathPriest

Oh yeah this is very overrated - christangrant

13 (Anesthesia) Pulling Teeth
14 One

This does not deserve to be here - Ajkloth

This is their best song - christangrant

15 Fade to Black
16 Enter Sandman
17 Welcome Home (Sanitarium)
18 Battery
19 Orion
20 Disposable Heroes

Are you kidding? the entire album of Master of Puppets is on this list - christangrant
