  2. My Metallica top 20 has as much to do with words (In some cases maybe more so) as it does with sounds.
    When I first got into Metallica long ago, Hetfield’s often times grim imagery quickly found a spot in the old gray, mush matter. He became one of my favorite lyricists and yeah, yeah he’s a good guitarist as well. In a few spots he even comes off as a decent singer, at least for the genre.

    20- Frayed Ends of Sanity
    19- Four Horsemen
    18- Fade to Black
    17- Spit Out the Bone
    16- Wherever I May Roam
    15- One
    14- The Thing That Should Not Be
    12- Mama Said
    11- Damage Inc.
    10- My Friend of Misery
    9- Creeping Death
    8- Sad But True
    7- Ride the Lightning
    6-Disposable Heroes
    5- Welcome Home (Sanitarium)
    4-The Outlaw Torn
    3- Seek and Destroy
    2- The Unforgiven
    1- For Whom the Bell Tolls
    I hated not including Master of Puppets, Orion, and a few others so I’ll just mention them as an afterthought honorable mention. I do like those tracks.

  4. Just finished listening to the Metallica top 20. I get out of work too late to hear it live. So I download the episodes on demand. My List is partially based on lyrics and sound.A few songs that show their influence of HP Lovecraft stories which i am a fan of.

    20 Broken Beat and Scarred
    19 The God That Failed
    18 Now That We’re Dead
    17 Here Comes Revenge
    16 Dream No More
    15 All Nightmare Long

    05 The Thing That Should Not Be

    01 Four Horseman
    I listen to all the studio albums and I could not put anything from the controversial albums. I cant stand the drumming in Saint Anger.

  5. Eddie,
    Here is your definitive list! LOL! You definitely shocked me with some of your list, I can tell you have no use for mid 90’s to mid 2000’s Metallica. Nothing from Load, Reload, or of course St. Anger. Glad to see you gave definite love to Hardwired! Love all your top 20’s, this one for my favorite band, I was introduced to Metallica in Summer of ’89 hearing Blackened for the first time. Definite life changer, this list is full of those life changing moments by way of their music!

    18 – The Memory Remains
    17 – Outlaw Torn
