Songs that deserve a bit more love

A few songs by famous bands that I don't think deserve the lack of attention they receive, or in other words, give these songs some love.
1Iron Maiden
Flash of the Blade

Off their greatest album, I think that this song would get a bit more love if there weren't other amazing songs like Rime of the Ancient Mariner, Powerslave, and Aces High. A fantastic main riff and an underappreciated solo, this song really should get more listens.
2Sum 41
Thanks for Nothing

From a Metal stalwart to Pop-Punk, Thanks for Nothing is one of my favorite songs by this band, which was a main reason for me getting into Metal since it was a bit heavier than most, filled with some of Sum 41's best rap verses, a nice "breakdown" and some decent "screamed" vocals by Derek (I know they really aren't, but that is the best word to describe it), it is a fun song that I like to keep coming back to.
3The Offspring

I know, another modern punk-rock band. Off their mega hit Smash, Genocide is rarely mentioned, but it has a fun riff and lyrics looking at problems with fighting to get on top. I like it.

Often overlooked in favor of Mechanix and Killing is my Business... and Business is Good, Rattlehead has one of my favorite Megadeth riffs and is just an insanely fun song.

One of the few cover songs that rivals the original, Death's cover of Painkiller has all the great parts from the original with additional guitar solos. Sure, it might be recognized a bit more than some other songs on this list, but considering how much attention Death gets anyways, it is one of their "less" well known songs.
6Paul Gilbert
Curse of Castle Dragon

I think Paul doesn't get enough love and this song is simply fantastic. A shred-fest with an epic riff, anthemic solo, and great slower parts, this is a definite stand out of his discography.
7Linkin Park
Pushing Me Away

The closing track off their debut album, Hybrid Theory, shows them a bit more mellow and with a bit more melody. Not as good as other songs on this list, but I still really like it.
