|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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
|Agreed on 1. Hate that they have never played it live, I mean, dat riff m//////|
|2 is one of my faves by them too|
|I wanna say "Genocide is underrated", but I can't find the proper wording...|
|I agree with 7.|
|Nice shout on 2, definitely one of their best songs.|
|9 should be 3 tbqh|
1 has an okay A7X cover that's all I can say
|Genocide, as in the track, is dope, let's be honest.|
|Also your avatar makes me angery >:(|
7 is gr8 yeah
|YESSSSSSSSSSS for 3. Such an all time jam|
|yeah 7 rules|
|2 for sure, that whole album is pretty underrated imo. It's a 3.5 here though, so maybe not lol|
