Again I chuckle at critics trying to rank an acclaimed artist's every song. As an avid Metallica fan, I'm near-violently shaking my head looking at the messed-up rankings. They got #1 right but "Fade to Black" should be at least Top 5; "Wherever I May Roam" is not the Black Album's best track;"Fuel", "No Leaf Clover", "The Memory Remains", "Phantom Lord" and "No Remorse" are ranked too low. At least they got the sense to put almost all the album tracks Pre-Black Album in the top half of the list.
