What about Nothing else matters?
I thought that it will be one of the first 5


2 Ambush June 24, 2009 at 9:46 pm

I’m going to go with Fade to Black as being #1


3 Kevin W June 25, 2009 at 1:11 pm

My vote for # 1 has to be Whiplash. It just sums the bands mantra so well.


4 Shane L June 26, 2009 at 5:12 pm

I’m disgusted that Orion didn’t make that list and Enter Sandman did…


5 Kevin W June 26, 2009 at 5:58 pm

Actually 8 & 9 could go. I am really down on the Black album right now.


6 Tom July 8, 2009 at 3:32 am

Are you guys serious? You reay think enter sandman doesnt deserve to be number 1? Obviously master is gonna get it, you guys need a health check.


7 justincredible August 6, 2009 at 6:48 am

wat bout sad but true, the thing that should not be, the unforgiven 1 2 and 3, damage inc., fuel, orion, disposable heroes, trapped under ice, st.anger, frantic, the unnamed feeling, fight fire with fire, ride the lightning, the god that failed, my apocalypse, hit the lights, cyanide, all nightmare long,and broken,beat & scarred

Also its pretty ridiculous that the unforgiven isnt on the list.
