Metallica are the biggest heavy metal band of all time, and one of the best. Even their lesser albums have some great moments (and, conversely, some of their great albums occasionally have a clunker).

Here, we take a deep dive into the band's discography. We included every song on every studio album; we also ranked the songs from the Beyond Magnetic EP, as well as the "Lords of Summer" single, the then-new songs included on S&M and "I Disappear." We didn't include any of their covers, nor any of their songs from their collaboration with Lou Reed, Lulu.
