    I know its pretty much a universally hated album, but I really love "The Unnamed Feeling" off of St. Anger.

    "Unforgiven 3" on Death Magnetic is epic.

    A few other favorites are:

    The Memory Remains
    Where Ever I May Roam
    Fuel
    Master of Puppets
    Call of Ktulu
    So F***ing What
    Whiskey in a Jar
    Cyanide

    Big fan of Unnamed Feeling. Can you replace the two covers with two of their songs? I'm hoping to put together a list of the SHH top 10.

    The Outlaw Torn
    Bleeding Me
    Blackened
    Suicide & Redemption

    Well, here's where the songs stand for now. All I did was create a list of all the songs you guys have given me. Then just added up how many times each song showed up on the list. I'm not listing all of them, but here are the top three spots, so far.

    1st place tie: One / For Whom The Bell Tolls (on 5 lists)
    2nd place tie: Master Of Puppets / Blacked (on 4 lists)
    3rd place tie: Cyanide / Enter Sandman / Nothing Else Matters / Harvester Of Sorrow / Orion / The Unnamed Feeling / Welcome Home (Sanitarium) (on 3 lists)

    More lists will change everything. Once I have enough lists, say 20+, I'll make a poll.

    My favorites?

    1. For Whom the Bell Tolls
    2. Orion
    3. Leper Messiah
    4. Creeping Death
    5. Master of Puppets
    6. Battery
    7. The Four Horsemen
    8. Dyers Eve
    9. That Was Just Your Life
    10. Trapped Under Ice

    Their best songs? (As far as musical quality, skill, and sheer awesomeness goes)... This list is a lot harder than I thought it'd be. :dry:

    1. Master of Puppets (From Master of Puppets). Hands down, one of the most complete songs in all of heavy metal.

    2. Orion (From Master of Puppets. A bass masterpiece, beautiful guitars, and amazing sound that you wouldn't normally think a band like Metallica would have if you're not really a huge fan. This song had the unfortunate displeasure of having to deal with fans who cover the song taking the bass solos (which begin at about 1.40 and 6.35 in the song) and thinking they're actually guitars, and playing them as such. All four instruments, though, are nothing short of incredible on this track.

    3. One (From ...And Justice For All). Truly an epic (I don't mean, "Wow, that was epic!", I mean as far as stories go) and their most recognizable power ballad, but it's the machine gun riff at the end that everyone who's ever seen MTV (when it was still a music channel) knows about.

    4. For Whom the Bell Tolls (From Ride the Lightning), the song that every heavy metal fan and every fan of Metallica knows because of "the awesome guitar intro". Fun fact: That's not a guitar, it's a bass, and it's a riff Cliff Burton had been using in Battle of the Bands competitions since high school. This song is probably one of their simplest, but still one of the heaviest. It really showed Metallica didn't have to be insanely fast or complex to be freakin' amazing.

    5. Battery (From Master of Puppets). A real thrash anthem if there ever was one, which really throws you off in the beginning because of the beautiful acoustic intro. Just about every metalhead has probably punched the crap out of their backpack or steering wheel listening to this one.

    6. Enter Sandman (From Metallica [Or, as most of us know it, The Black Album]). It kind of pains me to put this here, because personally, I can't stand it when people go, "Oh, I love Metallica! Enter Sandman is awesome!" or "Enter Sandman is so overrated and outplayed". This isn't the song that made them who they were (it actually stripped them of who they were), but it is a pretty awesome song that arguably rocketed them into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

    7. The Four Horsemen (From Kill 'Em All), an awesome metal performance from a bunch of teenagers that really threw people off back in the days of mixtapes and circulation by passing around cassettes. This is one of the songs that really blew peoples' socks off when they were still playing in bars. Fun fact about this one too: This is actually Dave Mustaine's song, called Mechanix. Mechanix is what the song was before Dave Mustaine left, and Metallica adapted it to a slower, yet heavier version. Plus, the lyrics and subject matter in Mechanix are fairly close to disgusting.

    8. King Nothing (From Load). It's really hard to put a song post-Black Album here, because all of their Load, ReLoad, and St. Anger music was really simple and, for the most part, bad. However, King Nothing showed what they could do with a funky edge and that they still had heavy metal in 'em.

    9. Leper Messiah (From Master of Puppets). There's a big reason I put this one here, and it's not because it's my favorite. It's one of James's direct attacks on religion, and easily his most powerful vocal and lyrical performance he's ever had. Aside from being heavy and fierce as hell, it's when you listen to the song's lyrical content and the way James delivers it that it really starts to sink in how great this song really is.

    10. Creeping Death (From Ride the Lightning). The main reason I put this song here is because of what they do with it live. This is probably one of their best songs they play live, and one of their heaviest. The interlude is the part that gets everyone really pumped, especially when Jason Newsted was still with the band. One last fun fact: the riff from the interlude (the riff during which "Die, die, die" is chanted in the background was Kirk Hammett's riff that he took with him upon leaving Exodus.

    Well, I only have 11 top ten lists. I'd like to get at least a few more before I put together a poll. Anyone else care to post a top ten list of their favorite Metallica songs?

    wish i had the cash to go down to Melbourne to see em. one of the shows was on Kirk's bday, so it woulda been funny to see the whole pie-in-the-face shenanigans, but they also cracked out a bunch of rarely-played tunes, like Outlaw Torn.

    oh well, i'm still damn happy with the shows i went to :D
