These Songs Go to 11!

Today being 11/11/11, and officially National Metal Day, we thought we’d have to find a way to celebrate. Now, most of us here at Print aren’t exactly metalheads—we lean toward the punker side of things—but we’ve been known to dabble in the epic notes of teenage doom. So, without further ado: a Spotify playlist featuring some our favorite metal (and metal-ish) tracks of all time.

For those of you who don’t use Spotify, here’s the playlist by track:

Yeah Yeah Yeahs: Man
Spinal Tap: Heavy Duty
Mclusky: To Hell With Good Intentions
Machine Head: The Blood, The Sweat, The Tears
Guns n’ Roses: You’re Crazy
Death From Above 1979: Dead Womb
Double Dagger: The Psychic
Slayer: Spill The Blood
Ram Jam: Black Betty
Megadeth: Public Enemy No. 1
Russian Circles: Death Rides a Horse
Hella: Biblical Violence
An Albatross: I Am the Lazer Viking
And So I Watch You from Afar: Search:Party:Animal
The Sword: Arrows in the Dark
Turbonegro: City of Satan
Bikini Kill: New Radio
Carcass: Blind Leading the Blind
Arnocorps: Terminator
Gojira: The Heaviest Matter in the Universe
Future of the Left: Small Bones Small Bodies
Led Zeppelin: Immigrant Song
7 Year Bitch: Miss Understood
Black Sabbath: Snow Blind
Motörhead: Breaking the Law
Iron Maiden: Fear of the Dark
Pantera: Fucking Hostile
ISIS: So Did We
Misfits: Where Eagles Dare
Eagles of Death Metal: Cherry Cola

    Unfortunately, AC/DC was not an intentional omission. Unfortunately, they’re not yet available on Spotify. There are a few AC/DC cover bands on there, but why not go with the real thing.

    . . . oh and for Motorhead, I do think Ace of Spades should really get the nod, if not Bomber . . . with maybe the Judas Priest recording Breaking the Law (though mention of the Priest has to bring in Green Manalishi and Judas is Rising of course!!).

    Interesting selections for sure – just one major addition for me; when you mention Iron Maiden I do really think that you should include the whole of the first album – saves time trying to select one track from it!!!
