All respect to Type O Negative, Black N.1 is an anthem for sure, but no way is the greatest song of 93. Only my opinion though, i understand if anyone would disagree.

edit: "I'm Broken" not the greatest of 94 either.

edit 2: i get that you're considering the comercial success of each song, but honestly when it comes to metal that doesn't feel that important.

1990: Good choice. I was absolutely sure they were going to go with that horrible Painkiller song but thankfully they didn't.

1991: Yes! This was an obvious choice

1992: I would've gone with Rage against the Machine's "Killing in the Name." That Pantera vocalist sounds like crap.

1993: I'd never heard of this band and this song didn't sound good to me. Then again I don't know what I would've gone with because what other metal songs were there in 1993?

1994: I'm VERY sad they didn't go with Korn's "Daddy." The guitar playing in the Pantera song sounded good, but I can guarantee that the vocals suck and the subject matter isn't as heavy as "Daddy."

1995: That song sounded awful. They should've gone with Iron Maiden's "Man on the Edge."

1996: Sounds like a pretty good choice actually. I don't know Tool very well, didn't think of them as metal from the songs I've heard before, but that did sound like a heavy song. But I was hoping they'd go with Rage Against the Machine's "Bulls on Parade" or Korn's "Twist."

1997: That song sounded great. I've heard of Rammstein before but never checked out their music because I don't know German. But that sounded pretty cool, even if I couldn't understand what he was saying.

1998: Great choice, bit I would have gone with Iron Maiden's "The Clansman." "Freak on a Leash " is a classic, but have you heard "The Clansman?" I don't care who's singing it. That's one of my top 10 favorite Iron Maiden songs.

1999: That's one of the more tolerable Slipknot songs. When Corey's not screaming, Slipknot are pretty enjoyable. The problem is, how often is Corey not screaming? But I would've gone with Korn's "Falling Away From Me." Or perhaps "Make Me Bad." Or perhaps "Somebody Someone." Or Perhaps Rage Against the Machine's "Testify." Or "Guerilla Radio." Or "Sleep Now in the Fire." Either way, Korn>Slipknot and Rage Against the Machine>Slipknot IMO.
