About the station
Over the years, Rock music, as well as all its sub-categories, has become one of the most heavily criticized and put-down genres. Main stream music has slowly drifted to the catchy cookie-cutter pop songs that play on every radio station, in every store, and on repeat in your head. Rock music has slowly been pushed to the background, but it lives on in the souls of those who prefer the heart and pure devotion that is put into rock and metal music. In the coming paragraphs, I will list some of the reasons why rock music has many more benefits than it is given credit for by the mainstream music society.

This is all to say: There are kids starting college this fall that have never lived in a world in which Metallica wasn’t at least a little bit a punch line, a sad state of affairs for the once-unassailable metal lords. It’s worth taking the time to remember the original run that established Metallica as one of the greatest, most important American bands in all of rock history, and also to look back at their more controversial last 20 years of music, hopefully with less bleary eyes than the first time around. Hence, we have ranked all 151 songs in Metallica’s back catalog — official releases only, with only the most famous version of each song included — to parse which of their post-imperial hits can actually stand up next to their accepted classics in the year 2015. Back to the front, let’s ride the lightning.
