  1. Oh my God! I love Iron Maiden, it’s my favorite metal band!

    That is waaay cool. Thanks!

    Somewhere In Time is my favorite album. I used to hate it but it grew on me some time ago. Also, I like the first album, the one that was pre Bruce Dickinson.

  2. fear of the dark by iron maiden
    clairvoyant by iron maiden
    hallowed be thy name by iron maiden

  3. Number Of The Beast

    that song rocks out!

  4. Some good picks but I’d add:
    Orgasmatron by Motorhead
    Trashed by Black Sabbath
    City Beneath the Surface by Savatage
    Metaldaze by Manowar
    Wasted Years by Iron Maiden

  5. “Princess of the Night” by Saxon (the, like, 15 minute, live version)
    “Gonna Raise Hell” by Cheap Trick (again, had to be live. The studio version had no grit, way overproduced).

  62. Nice list. It’s tough to narrow down, yet here’s two of mine:

    Iron Maiden – Revelations
    Motorhead – Killed By Death
    Satyricon – The Wolfpack
    Black Sabbath – Iron Man

    I could go on all day, coming up with this stuff is a kick.

  63. Oops, I stand corrected, my last comment I stated “here’s two of mine” and I listed four. Listening to Metal Music for decades does this to you… you just lose track after awhile man.

  64. Omg.. Barely half the songs here are heavy metal, it’s actually a branch called rock / hard rock -.-

  65. Solo una cosa voy a opinar: Para ser objetivos tendríamos que nombrar solo canciones de Heavy Metal, no de Hard Rock ni de Thrash ni de Death ni de Black ni Speed etc. etc. (que son todos de la misma familia ya lo sé).
    Osea que por ejemplo: Guns N’ Roses no entraría en discusión ya que son Hard Rock, Led Zeppelin tampóco, Pantera tampóco, y así un montón de bandas más que la gente nombra cuando quieren opinar sobre el Heavy Metal, por lo visto esta gente no sábe bien lo que es el Heavy Metal.
    Para mi la mejor canción de la historia es “The Sentinel” de Judas Priest.

  66. For Me, best are each and every songs of
