    Kanye butchered it and cut out the best part when he was "sampling" it.

    LITTLE GIRL IN BLOOM Thin Lizzy

    A beautiful original written by the late Phil Lynott from the incredibly underrated and long forgotten Thin Lizzy “Vagabonds of the Western World” album when Thin Lizzy was a three man group with lead guitarist Eric Bell. (maybe not Heavy metal - but a classic for sure).

    STARGAZER Rainbow/Rising

    Rainbow have never really been a metal band. More of a rock band. But they just so happened to write and record one of metal’s greatest songs! This is due to the fact that Dio was involved. Seems like wherever Dio goes, the magic follows. The fine materiel recorded by Rainbow during the Dio years were mostly Renaissance Faire-esce or straight ahead pool hall rockers. They did manage to cut three Metalers though. The other two are “Kill The King” (a close second) and “Gates Of Babylon” (A bit too progressive yet still cool.) “Stargazer” is a wonder and a winner. The lyrics and the performance is so mystical. The riff is very hard hitting and deadly infectious. It stays the course the entire time only to climax to an ending that will literally give you the power to fly. It’s nearly a perfect song. To this day I can still see the slaves of the now fallen wizard rising with the Rainbow. Pure magic! Runner ups: Gates Of Babylon, Kill The King

    MASTER OF PUPPETS Metallica/Master Of Puppets

    Metallica’s greatest song. It’s their “Ninth Symphony”. Every riff is perfect. A difficult song to play and one that is so easy to ingest. James’ vocal performance is one we will sadly never hear again. This is also their best record. It is so well produced. The sound still shatters my every bone even after 25 years of listening to it. The chorus is designed for concerts. The solo from Kirk is haunting and gum scraping. The bridge sections, count em…four, are so memorable you can hum them note for note even if you haven’t given the song a spin in say, two years. The lyrics are masterfully written that it will remove every ounce of hope you can muster. (“Chomp your breakfast on a mirror!”) The song ends with one of metal’s heaviest riffs (a simple variation on the main verse riff)…EVER! Too bad that in these days this has been demoted to being partially played live in god awful medleys. Please guys! Treat this as if it were your son who is worthy of the crown. It is the only level it deserves. Runner ups: Ride The Lightning, Disposable Heroes.

    Nothing by Metallica is "forgotten." "Stargazer" is one of Rainbow's best-known songs.

    And the plural of "runner-up" is "runners-up."

    "The Final Countdown" isn't forgotten. "Video Killed the Radio Star" isn't metal or hard rock. READ, god damn it.

    even with the younger generation that i know who are into the music scene most have never heard of Europe as for the radio part my commute to work lasts about 4 mins there really is not worth it to listen digital as for my channels i have three somewhat local stations that my truck pulls in all three are small independent college indie stations

    Some people really need to get a grip. Do you really think that ANYTHING by Maiden, Scorpions or Black Sabbath is "forgotten?" Get some perspective, clowns. THESE are forgotten classics:

    Yeah, but Inna-Godda-Da-Vida is by far their most well-known song, so I opted for "Heavy" instead.
