Top 21 METALLICA Songs | Mike The Music Snob

  • Опубліковано 25 лют 2024
  • These are Mike The Music Snob's Top 21 Metallica songs. Why did I choose 21? Because 10 would be boring when there's such a broad catalog and I feel like 21 does my appreciation of the band and the band itself more justice.

      But it is still accurate when it comes to metallica fans, a good chunk of them are such hypocrites, they always hate whenever they stray away from thrash, then when they go back to thrash they get all pissy about it
      They also like to call you a poser for liking anything past 87, even though they still enjoy mop which is one of their most popular songs
      The hypocrisy is just painful

    S&M takes Call of Ktulu above even Orion for me. The orchestra breaths a new life into an already great song, and, honestly, I think it belongs in a movie. It sounds like a killer soundtrack song. And the mounting feeling of dread throughout the first part of the song before it explodes into the madness that makes up the meat of the song is like nothing I've ever heard before.

Plus the sound from s&m sounds like more hard rock (excluding the orchestra, that sounds fucking brutal to me) but man, the tone on master of puppets is just one you can’t beat, not only for guitar but for everything.

Rediscovering some of these gems is such a reminder of why I love this band so much. I discovered them when Load came out and Until it Sleeps played on the radio. It had such an impact on me that I began checking out all of their previous albums and have been a fan ever since. To this day that song holds a special place in my heart for that reason.

    I feel like when a youtuber is gonna do a top 10 metallica song there's someone holding a gun up to their head telling him to say a bunch overrated songs from the first 5 albums, but in reality his favorite songs are a bunch of underrated(but awsome) songs...

    I always feel awkward about talking about my favorite Metallica songs because I’m a younger dude compared to you older folks and I wasn’t born when the black album came out. So Enter Sandman wasn’t played over and over for me. I like it not in my top 10 or 20 songs but I’d probably rate it a lot higher than you guys because I’m so young.

    Hey mike, just subscribed after watching this vid. The one that put me over the edge! I generally agree with you, I’m just not familiar with ReLoad songs, so I can’t speak to that. You left out St. Anger album, which I get is not everyone’s cup of tea, but I just love My World! Another track that is sorely missing off this list I think is The Judas Kiss.
    Since I know you’re also a Dream Theater fan, I was wondering what you thought of Kevin Moore/Chroma Key? I’ve been really into his early stuff lately, “Dead Air for Radios,” “This is a Recording” Demo album, etc. I’ve always found his early stuff to be so melancholy and emotional, yet steeped in loneliness, very “Space Dye Vest” esque. Would love to see a video on his early work.

  • @nicktelindert1687

    The thing that really hits me on the S&M version of one is James screaming " No no no no" right before the solo. That scream adds such a climax to the song that it beats the original any day. Also i never liked the production of any metallica album before the Black Album which is why i like the S&M versions of most old songs a lot better on S&M. One of the other songs that really works really well on S&M is " The Thing that Should Not Be" , James vocals are miles ahead of the original(He sounds like a mad man and it works) and the orchestra really gives the song a feeling of total madness(I have no other way to describe it).

    • @raidknight
      @raidknight Рік тому

      Also his voice sounds more haunting with it the guitars being tuned to e flat instead of e standard and it really adds to the orchestra and all the minute differences together inch it out for me as well as the speed of the bridge and solo.

    No leaf clover has always been a top one for me. I always loved the “epic” Metallica: Outlaw Torn, Bleeding Me, Fixxxer, etc and this song embodies that vibe but still remains metal. It still mystifies me why they never released a studio version of this song. Also mad respect for including S&M as a whole several times. That whole album/video and era are super nostalgic for me (Jr High), and I hold it in a special place in my heart. Cheers! PS Prince Charming is also one of my favorites!

    This is a fair list. I'm like you in that I like metallica as a whole. They are more than just a metal band. They have amazing songs across their entire catalog. They write relatable songs that cover a wide range of emotions and topics. Outlaw torn is one of my all time favorites. I remember when load came out I was in the fourth or fifth grade. I am 33 now and metallica is one of the few bands that I have listened to no matter what season of life I am in. When things are hard metallica has a song for that, when things are great metallica has a song for that, when I'm feeling overly American metallica has a song for that, when I'm feeling pissed about the current state of American foreign policy metallica has a song for that, when I'm feeling wild metallica has a song for that, when I'm feeling contemplative metallica has a song for that, when I'm feeling wronged metallica has a song for that, and when I'm feeling triumphant metallica has a song for that. They legitimately have a song for every season of life.
