The 100 Greatest Metallica Songs out of the 95 Metallica Songs PT 2

Here's a list someone sent me of the "100 Greatest Metallica Songs" as featured in Guitar World magazine. As I covered in my last post regarding the matter, this is an impossible list. If you add all of the Metallica albums together that aren't covers, the band only wrote 95 songs. 98 if you count the original tracks on S&M, and a soundtrack song for Mission Impossible 2. I hope you don't count a soundtrack song from Mission Impossible 2.

No matter how we look at this, Metallica does not even have 100 of their own songs. Guitar World is basically looking at more than Metallica's entire musical career and calling it the "Greatest". I hope Dave Mustaine got a copy. Anyway, here is the entire list from "best" song, to "100th... best..."

Is All Nightmare Long really #9? Really? This is like if someone put their iPod on shuffle and called it an article. Stop buying Guitar World magazine.


  1. At least there is no black album/ fag album > in the top 10 with the exception of All nightmare long but im sure that's a typo or something. If enter sandman was put at number 1# I think I would have gone on a killing spree of some sorts!

  2. Astronomy is a Blue Oyster Cult cover, Guitar world, You stupid cunt repulsors.

  3. Just like Am I Evil is a Diamond Head cover. I don't think that counts, really.

  4. Pure weak sauce, i actually preferred RTL and Killl em all, man i must have listened to that album a million times as a little twirp, i'm gonna go listen to the 4 horsemen.....
