No "Mississippi Queen"? "Stone Cold Crazy"?
I also think "Highway Star" could replace "Child In Time", as much as I prefer the latter musically.

Good call on those songs although I don't think they beat any of the songs listed. I think Child in Time takes Highway on influence and popularity.

Highway Star demolishes it in terms of radio airplay, and I'd say it's certainly a more popular song overall, being somewhat of an 'anthem' for metal/hard rock for generations to come.

You could say that Child In Time had influence on prog metal or more 'complex' metal, but Highway Star was more influential on metal as a whole (the faster styles like thrash especially).

Child in Time is more influential on epic hard rock. It is THE greatest epic hard rock track. And it indeed influenced complex metal.

Thanks. I'm not that big of a Metallica fan anymore. I didn't really bother to check. :lol:

Yeah I wore out the first 4 albums....played the SHIT out of them when I was younger.

Still love them though, and can never get enough of Garage Inc.

I am not so sure if I would classify these as hard rock, Bones.
