Ridiculously Awesome Metal Songs

The Age of Consent - Virgin Steele
Song: "The Burning of Rome (Cry for Pompeii)"



You can't get much more ridiculously awesome than this. The Burning of Rome might be the single most badass song Virgin Steele has ever done, pure ass-kicking perfection from the beginning to the very end.

Vicious Rumors - Vicious Rumors
Song: "Don't Wait for Me"



To date the most well known song from this obscure little power metal band - and for a very good reason. Don't Wait for Me has it all: crunching riffs, screaming hot solos with serious balls and some of the most charismatic metal singers of early 90's.

Bark at the Moon - Ozzy Osbourne
Song: "Bark at the Moon"



People usually think this classic was written by Randy Rhoads, but nope. It was Jake E. Lee, in my opinion one of the most underrated metal guitarists of all time. This beast of a song alone should make the dude immortal.

Headless Cross - Black Sabbath
Song: "When Death Calls"



Beautiful, beautiful song. I seriously do not understand why people underestimate Tony Martin era Sabbath so frigging much. In my opinion the band has never been musically better than this.

No-brainer. Very few metal songs have ever come close to this level of mastery.

Kivenkantaja - Moonsorrow
Song: "Raunioilla"



This song made me a fan. So ridiculously epic and awesome. The title means "in the ruins" and the lyrics are about destruction of paganic gods.

Time Tells No Lies - Praying Mantis

I remember listening to this exact super melodic song about million times over and over when I found it decades ago. These guys were on the top of their game when they made this thing, everything just clicks.

Rock City - Riot
Song: "Warrior"



Speed metal from the late 70's? Oh yes, these guys were years ahead of their time. Even though Rock City isn't that great of an album, Warrior is still my favorite song from the band, a true timeless classic if there ever was one.

A very obscure little gem from the States. Old-school epic US power metal at it's finest. The singer even sounds like Geddy Lee!

The Crimson Idol - W.A.S.P.
Song: "Chainsaw Charlie (Murders In The New Morgue)"



This is one of the masterpieces you could pick any frigging song from. Chainsaw Charlie is as ridiculously awesome as it possibly can get, but it also has the most over the top lyrics of them all. Blackie even produced newer version of this album just to tone them down.

Oceanborn - Nightwish

The best thing Nightwish has ever done. The latter half just screams awesomeness, it's such epic song they have always had serious problems trying to play it live nearly as well as they did in the studio.

The Warning - Queensrÿche

This band has way too many awesome songs to pick from. I'll take this one, just for the killer live performance I put above. Back in the days Geoff Tate was one of the most talented metal singers in the world, and it really shows.

Love You to Pieces - Lizzy Borden
Song: "Red Rum"



The biggest mistake these guys ever made was creating a debut album so ridiculously awesome that no matter what they tried, they could never match it. Love you to pieces is true creme de la creme when it comes to classic 80's heavy metal.

This album really shouldn't be this enjoyable. I mean, even the cover has every evil cliche imaginable, but you can literally hear the bands crazy enthusiasm and attitude through their playing, and that alone makes the music feel much more than what it actually is.

These girls were seriously awesome, if also extremely underrated back in the days. Their style is more mix of heavy metal and old-school goth rock influences. A great band nevertheless.

A short list of some of my favorite badass metal songs of all time.

Only 1 song per band, all ridiculously awesome.
