Top 10 Metallica Songs

Last night I was watching the Seattle Concert in the ‘Live Shit: Binge & Purge’ with a few mates. Awesome concert by the way.

We got into the discussion of ‘What are the top 10 Metallica songs?’ It lead to a fair amount of debate so I thought I would pose the question to you guys.

Put your’s down in order from 1-10. Mine go…

  1. Sanitarium
  2. Seek & Destroy
  3. The Unforgiven
  4. Bleeding me
  5. One
  6. Creeping Death
  7. Battery
  8. The Thing that should not be
  9. Enter Sandman
  10. No Remorse

I narrowed it down to 25 songs and had to go from there. Let’s see how you go.

  1. Damage Inc
  2. Dyer’s Eve
  3. Orion
  4. TO Live is to Die
  5. Fade to Black
  6. Outlaw Torn
  7. Trapped Under Ice
  8. Bleeding Me
  9. Master of Puppets
  10. Disposable Heros
  1. Seek And Destroy
  2. Master of Puppets
  3. Battery
  4. Creeping Death
  5. One
  6. Sanitarium
  7. Whiplash
  8. Wherever I May Roam
  9. Fade To Black
  10. Orion

It’s almost unfair to have a top ten, I can listen to most of their stuff straight through until Load

Seek and Destroy used to be my all-time fave. I still love it.

How come noone’s mentioned the Horsemen?

DOH!

Disposable Heroes goddammit!

Double DOH!

hello? The Shortest Straw???

geez people!

Put your 10 in. It’s a tough job trying to narrow it down if you are a big fan.

  1. Don’t Tread On Me
  2. Unforgiven
  3. Bleeding Me
  4. Fade to Black
  5. Of Wolf and Man
  6. Nothing Else Matters
  7. Outlaw Torn
  8. My Friend of Misery
  9. Creeping Death
  10. Until It Sleeps

It’s funny how my tastes have changed over time. These 10 are the ones that stuck with me, but they certainly weren’t my favorites originally. Although I’ve always been partial to the Black Album over all their others.

  1. St. Anger

Oh boy, sweet topic.

  1. Disposable Heros, hands down
  2. Master of Puppets
  3. One
  4. Battery
  5. Bleeding me
  6. Seek and Destroy
  7. Harvester of Sorrow
  8. For Whom the Bell Tolls
  9. Four Horsemen
  10. The Shortest Straw

All of And Justice for All
Whiplash
The Phantom Lord

The original poster’s list NEEDS Fade to Black

  1. To Live Is To Die
  2. Blackened
  3. The Shortest Straw
  4. Trapped Under Ice
  5. Fade to Black
  6. The Unforgiven
  7. My Friend of Misery
  8. Don’t Tread On Me
  9. Sad But True
  10. The Struggle Within

After the black album the only song I liked is “Hero of The Day”.

Best cover song Blitzkrieg

Album Rating…

1st- Tie ‘Master of Puppets’ & ‘And Justice For All’ (Metallica’s best music)

then… Ride The Lightning & The Black Album

then… who gives a shit, the “Kill em’ All” album was too instrument and not enough music & the newer albums are all too sellout and why listen to them when you have "Master of Puppets, And Justice For All, Ride The Lightning, & The Black Album

I have said my peace… I have said too much. Its not 1988 anymore so the era of great metal from Metallica is over… enjoy the old shit!

I’m with you, but I’d have to change “bleeding me” with “Creeping Death”
