Metal Hammer Says That These are “The 100 Best Metal Songs of the ’90s”

0

In case you haven’t noticed, we are now in the summer new doldrums. Thank Christ, then, that Metal Hammer have released a list of what they consider to be “The 100 Best Metal Songs of the ’90s.” This should give us something argue/waste time with for at least a week.

A list like this must have been a bitch to make. I sympathize. They certainly could have made things easier on themselves by not including any Limp Bizkit (they managed to avoid Coal Chamber, after all!), but hey, I get it. “Nookie” is the best song ever about denying you have any human feelings and ordering a woman who has broken your heart to shove a cookie up her vagina. It simply had to be included.

The rest of the list is reasonably respectable… reasonably. That there are two Korn songs but nothing by Obituary, Bolt Thrower, or Deicide seems kinda bonkers.

But, again, I get it. This list really could not have existed without “Nookie.”

Check out the full list below, courtesy of The PRP. You can read Metal Hammer‘s explanations for their selections here. You can also find a Spotify playlist with all these tracks at the bottom of this post.
