    First song that came to mind. Should have been much earlier.

    I need to punch myself for forgetting this. My brain was stuck on metal but what a great song.

    ^ This is my favorite as well, but there are also several honorable mentions in here like War Pigs and One.

    • War Pigs is not overrated. For me, it's just overdone because I have heard it a billion times.
    • No chance Dio years were better. Sabbath wrote its best stuff during the Ozzy years.

    Hell yeah (high five). I'll nominate the day that never comes. Its not directly about war but the meaning is vague enough to where they went with a war video (song is about forgiveness and resentment).

    If you where to make a 25 song metallica greatest hits, this song would probably be the only song from the 2000s on that list.
