10 Bewitched - Blood On the Dance Floor

Not metal. - Userguy44

How the hell this crap is a style of metal?

Hate blood on the dance floor, if this is metal no wonder people who listen to slayer or megadeth are considered satanists.

UListen to Sample
17 Breaking Their Hold - Avenged Sevenfold

This song is one minute of unholy screams that can barely be understood or heard due to the loud guitar and drums toning it out. I don't hate Avenged Sevenfold, but this song is awful. 1/10

UListen to Sample
18 Pull Harder On the Strings or Something or Other - Trivium

Now this is just lazy as hell. If you can't think of the song name then just don't PUT IT! Or look it up. Don't put something or other on it. It makes you sound stupid - SirSkeletorThe3rd

Its pull harder on the strings of your martyr

Its obviously than this list is a crap

1- only are a little bands that are a really crap (limp bizkit, BVB, iwrestedtheblablabla)
But are so good bands in the top, seriously, trivium, mastodon and cannibal corpse are on the top?

This list are a crap, and pull harder on the strings of your martyr are a good song

What is the problem with this? I like the other rammstein songs

Haha, this song isn't metal at all. - Metal_Treasure

Hail Rammsein

26 Shut Up and Love Me - The Dead Exs UListen to Sample
27 Bemoan the Matyr - Cryptopsy

That title...

The content of the song is just too much for me. Even by death metal standards

40 Mechanix - Megadeth

Good instrumental work, but the lyrics suck. - Userguy44

I think the instrumentation is a little better and definitely more awesome than the four horsemen, but the lyrics and vocals and production are pretty 🤬

It's a good song

This was probably put on here by some “metalhead” kid who heard this for the first time and hated it because it’s “‘The Four Horsemen’, but faster”, yet he doesn’t know that Dave Mustaine wrote all the music and lyrics to this while he was in Metallica and that Metallica just took these riffs, slowed them down, and wrote different lyrics to write “The Four Horsemen” before they kicked Mustaine out for being drunk, even though it was hypocritical of them to do that because they all liked to get drunk. I know this was lengthy, but c’mon, anyone with half a brain knows Megadeth is better, despite Dave Mustaine’s questionable voice.
