FORGET THE BEST ALBUMS… WHAT ARE THE BEST METAL SONGS OF 2010?
This simple-yet-visceral guitar solo makes me its bitch every time I hear it.
As the end of the year draws closer and closer, we’ve been spending an increasing amount of time debating which metal albums were the best of 2010; indeed, the staff of MetalSucks will all post our “Best Of” lists next Thursday, December 16, right before we shut down for the holidays. (And don’t worry, there’ll be a reader’s poll, too.) But while that argument flames on, Listmaster General Carlos Ramirez has stirred up some shit of a whole different color over at Noisecreep, posting that site’s list of 10 best songs of 2010.
As we say time and again, these lists are a tricky thing, ’cause they’re all opinion, and the ranking of art is more or less completely meaningless. That being said, I’d like to take this moment to publicly disagree with every single selection on this list. There are bands on here that I might include were I myself to make such a list (Triptykon and Nachtmystium, for example), but even then, I don’t agree with the song selection. But, again, this is all just, like, Noisecreep’s opinion, man, so while it’s fun to discuss, I won’t get too upset that the Scorpions were included, even though they wrote one of the ten best songs of the year like Kirk Windstein and I double-teamed a herd of Puerto Rican midgets after the Crowbar show last night. Which is to say, they didn’t.
Read the list here, then, of course, please come back and debate/argue/flame/troll in our comments section.
