My favorite overall is probably Master, but Blackened and Creeping Death make up my top 3


TheDHP

Creeping death or harvester of sorrow


ibyczek78

Definitely the best 2 songs live.


TheDHP

Agreed


Armored-Elder

Fade to Black


FeigeGeige

Ohh, good choice


01Robert01

To Live is To Die


FMHSA

I agree, it's the most emotional and honest song that they ever written, doomer and pure at the same time


LunarChocolate80

The Shortest Straw


jpohlman52

I second that


MagrounYEET

Totally agree with you


Dimitrisayy

only small downside is it feels a bit repetitive for me but it's so heavy i love it


Stoner0076

Blackened


clackfew

Battery that opening riff \m/


Background_Gur3949

And Justice for All is my favorite :) but I also really like to live is to die and Orion :)


twosuitsluke

Can't argue with these picks


KrumbSum

Finally even tho it’s almost 10 mins long it feels like it’s 5


[deleted]

Probably Outlaw Torn. But I hesitate to choose it because so much of the 80's catalog is a close second. Would I introduce someone to Metallica with Outlaw Torn? No.


High_Rum

The outlaw torn is sooo good, my favorite metálica song but I’d probably recommend others before that cuz people think it’s too long


1deadeye1

Time was never on my side


FeigeGeige

Then go listen to Somewhere in Time, good album


reverseflash776

Time is always on my side


FeigeGeige

And you know what's coming next


stinkyrossignol

I have a tough time picking between Outlaw Torn and Bleeding Me.


LuigiMan26

Never hesitate to choose one of (if not) the deepest, prolific, and powerful song in their catalog. I'm with you on this choice


[deleted]

Well said thanks!


[deleted]

it’s so damn good


B1gF3rg

I am confident to say it's One. The live performances enhance the song even more.


RoutineKing696

I think the music video is great


teddyplays2019

Probably fade to black


asapcosmin

The unforgiven ii


HarvesternC

Probably Outlaw Torn or Frayed.


Zeddicus11

Tough call. Maybe Ride the Lightning. Especially when I'm on a run and am starting to flag


Flakmack

creeping death but it changes biweekly Other favorites Welcome home Seek and destroy One Roam Bells


GlNGERBONE

Ah, One Roam Bells. The timeles classic


SaturnOne

Welcome Home (Sanitarium) has been my favorite for so long... but there's so many more to choose from!


Dutcher3

ORION


Ok-Recognition-6319

Master of Puppets :)


Ninja_Lazer

That changes based on the last album I listened to.


Trauermond

1.The Unforgiven 2.Welcome Home (Sanitarium) 3.One


TFGrunt

orion


ArtoTime

Send me money, send me green, heaven you will meet. Make a contribution and you'll get a better seat... ...bow to Leper Messiah!


twosuitsluke

Oh I thought we were picking our MOST favourite song


FuriouSherman

Enter Sandman. Fuck you if you decide to give me shit because it's the basic choice; I love it all the same.


KrumbSum

It’s a good song I’m just tired of hearing it


Comprehensive-Song51

In my opinion, it's one of the all-time greats. Probably good as a song can get. It's very well written. The way it builds up at the beginning, you can't help but get into it!


ghettobx

I saw the black album documentary not too long ago, and I really loved watching some of those songs come together, like that one. Trying different guitars, changing the drum sound until it fit… it was just fascinating watching Bob Rock and the band slowly putting the song together


Comprehensive-Song51

I need to dig that one up. It's been a long time since I last saw it and it don't think I saw it all. What I did see was great. They've developed a pretty interesting process for making music.


ghettobx

I think I watched it on YouTube, several years ago… but it’s probably still there.


Miserable_Bus6223

Harvester of Sorrow, in my opinion one of the best songs Metallica has ever written.


Sakumitzu

It's 'The Thing That Should not be' for me. But I just have to say this (and you can downvote me if you disagree): this subreddit is really losing its pace lately. The only posts are "what's your favorite song?", "what's your favorite song from Hardwired?", "what's your favorite solo?". Posts that appear again and again, and honestly it's getting extremely repetitive. Am I the only who feels this way?


[deleted]

wow, what an original post, I definitely want to hear the same peoples opinion for the 1000 time


FeigeGeige

3. Trapped Under Ice 2. Orion 1. Holy Wars Gotcha 1. is: Disposable Heroes


geofflinkinpark

Unforgiven II


LyonHeart85

Puppets.


Dr4gonM4ster420

Trapped Under Ice. What’s there not to love about it?


Watermelonwater17

The Unforgiven


Stop_Rock_Video

Glad I'm not the only one. I designed a tattoo years ago that I still haven't had put on with "A vow unto his own that never from this day his will they'll take away."


seargantWhiskeyJack

All nightmare long!!


twosuitsluke

Mercyful Fate or To Live is to Die


Interaction_Critical

Frayed ends of sanity: 7 glorious minutes


Dsaastad

That's a tough one, but I'd have to say We Did It Again


AdamEnokson

For me it is Halo on Fire


Morbidd

For whom the bell tolls


DeviantSpider14

Outlaw torn or bleeding me


LeftHandLuke01

Unforgiven III


Trendscom

Bleeding Me


Exige_Imperius

Either Purify, Fixxxer or Outlaw Torn


DisgustingLatinoBoi

Judas Kiss or Fixxxer


camdawg665

SPIT OUT DI BONE!!

justice gaah ddaaaymn


steiner1031

Low_Woodpecker_5965

Disposable for sure


DaredevilDude36

Blackened


Aim2bFit

The Call of Ktulu.


Straight-Ad-196

The Four Horsemen


xiAMTheWalRUSx101

Call to ktulu is up there for me


judgedavid90

RIDE THE LIGHTNING


ThisFuckingGuy520

Sad But True or The Four Horseman. Halo on Fire is my recent favorite.


Floridaman_on_meth

Holier Than Thou


333jguitar502

Based


CaptainRipp

Battery. Such pure aggression.


ReasonHound

Now that we are dead slaps hard with the drums and the palm mute bridge after the guitar solo. Hardwired is my favorite album by them now.


[deleted]

Orion will always be my number one pick, but Disposable Heroes is pretty close.


tiron84

Master of Puppets, Whiplash, King Nothing and Spit Out the Bone


UnconsciousWrap

Trapped under ice!


notscottralph

Dyers eve or orion.


Stunning_Ad8115

Too many to mention, but I'm going to pick one that nobody else picks: Escape, it reminds me of high school. Also, although a cover, one of my faves is the Mercyful Fate medley, it's badass and if you play it in a jukebox, it lasts about 10 minutes.


twosuitsluke

I freaking LOVE this medley, I was coming here to post this. I've have been basically listening to Metallica my entire life (thanks to my older bro) and a hardcore fan for 20 years. This song is one I can always return to!


trunknation

Cop Killer


EnderWaffles

MOTABORETH


delibertine

Blackened


themightyhetspeaks81

That's fucking hard to answer,I mean like,I would say everything,It's too hard to just choose one.


lottomax28

It usually cycles between 3 options. Creeping Death, the thing that should not be, and bells


iNOscoped-JFK

Eye of The Beholder


Knightmare25

Fade to Black.


blakehenderson25

Hm. Number One on my list? Idk. Metallica just has so many good Ones, can’t narrow it down to just One song.


adsq93

Battery for sure. And justice for all, Dyers Eve and Creeping death are all close tho.


chnflore

Probably Orion. One of the most beautifully composed songs in Metal


napaknowhow1980

The unforgiven


Queenfan44354

For whom the bell tolls. It made me realize how fucking awesome Metallica really is


CursedCommentReader

If I'm being honest, One. However, Blackened comes in at a close second


Amasin_Spoderman

One is my favorite by far. Underrated in a sea of great songs from the best era of Metallica.


Schmeatlordd

One


HeyHeyImTheMonkey

Enter Sandman Jk. It’s anything on Lulu


TomSizemore69

Idk


WokenPancake

Hm, depends. For meaning? One. For the music itself? Whiplash.


jdeertay

Sad But True


josh_loaf

My Friend of Misery! The lyricism & bass line are iconic.


Hot_Bodybuilder_7284

Recorded/Album-Tie between One and Damage Inc. Live-Jason Era Creeping Death. Jason added that MOTHERFUCKER DIE! right before the Die By My Hand breakdown and “Lamb’s blood painted door MOTHERFUCKER I SHALL PASS!” at the end live that just sent me through the roof at the show!


67mustangrider

Fade to black, The god that failed, and Bleeding me


yeti9876

Orion is just something else for me.


kirkhammett420

Th first few that my come to my mind are Blackened, Outlaw Torn, Horsemen and Atlas Rise, but choosing my favourite Metallica song feels like picking your favourite child...


Maxelloneal

Trapped Under Ice


moondog__

Orion


rogue498

One. It was the song that inspired me to learn guitar and was there for me when I was not in a good place mentally 4 years ago.


Raidon35

Whiplash


DethMagnetic

One was the song that got me into metal. I was 8-9 years old, playing guitar hero 3 on my wii trying to beat one for weeks. All these years later, one is still my favourite song. Damage Inc and The shortest straw come in close second, but nothing compares to one.


Mr_Hari

Frayed


Fortnite4206969

Hit the lights


rmaher07

avawages

Probably Sanitarium, but it’s a hard choice

Fade to Black or Creeping Death.


ratsad

Master, such a well write and produce song.


defect674279

Trapped Under Ice in my opinion is very underrated and probably my favorite. Maybe Disposable Heroes. That’s a hard choice.

It changes all the time but I consistently come back to master of puppets


NCN403

Montysauru5

It changes all the time, but right now The Unforgiven is getting repeat playing. The lyrics and that solo - perfection!


anganga12

One


Papabearboxhead

This might be the hardest question ever: Master? Creeping death? Human? Out law torn? Fixxxer? Ronnie? So many good ones, I'd probably say Master of Puppets.


WiggleMyTimbers

The Thing That Should Not Be (but I do have a very soft spot for No Leaf Clover)


reverseflash776

Master or Spit


slashparadox

Such a hard question but it’s either Puppets, One or shortest straw but there is so many that will definitely get on my favourite songs list


kirafaith28

Master of Puppets 🧡🧡🧡


Camk2005

Wherever I May Roam, Creeping Death, and Holier Than Thou are mine!


k1tzen1uge

To Live Is To Die or Unnamed Feeling


JustCallMeDarius

I'll do a quick rundown Kill 'em all - Hit the lights Ride the lightning -Creeping death Master of puppets - Damage Inc. And justice for all... - Frayer ends of sanity Metallica 1991 - Holier then thou Load - King nothing Reload - Devil's dance St. Anger - Frantic Death magnetic - The day that never comes Hardwired... To self destruct - Hardwired


l3on4ardo
