20. Distortion (Metal Galaxy, 2019)

“The best thing that BABYMETAL has made up to this point. The “metal” parts have a lot more meat to them and the J-Pop chorus is much catchier. It’s still incredibly cheesy though and hard to see as anything more than a novelty group.”

19. Uki Uki ★ Midnight (Live – Legend I,D,Z Apocalypse, 2013)

“One of the most underrated songs.. This song has one of the best choreography in every single Babymetal track.. Tune is catchy too.”

18. Onedari Daisakusen (Live – Legend I,D,Z Apocalypse, 2013)

“This may be a bit different type of song than other Babymetal songs. Nonetheless, it is very cool and, as the only live performance in LA in 2017 shows, the song garners such a strong momentum with slow dances and Su’s incredible shout at the beginning.”

17. Rondo of Nightmare (Babymetal, 2013)

“I like this song a lot. Really heavy and dark song. Almost sounds like Periphery. Amazing choreography, Must be seen on live.”

16. Awadama Fever (Metal Resistance, 2016)

“Accompanied by the most mesmerizing dance moves in the history of dance. Their best song, and one of the most jaw dropping songs I’ve ever heard.

15. Amore (Metal Resistance, 2016)

” I like it because it’s one that would really get a crowd pumped for the rest of the live set and because the music sounds really Arch Enemy/old In Flames-esque. Great song!”

14. Babymetal Death (Live – Legend I,D,Z Apocalypse, 2013)

“The opener to their album and a b-side to the Ijime Dame Zettai single, this is basically their “theme” song. The only vocal performance there is are the chanting of “Hey! ” and the three girls each saying their stage name followed by a unanimous “Babymetal desu! “

13. The One (Metal Resistance, 2016)

“My favorite BABYMETAL song and one of my favorite songs of all time! This riff reminds us metalheads of old school Slipknot. Pretty good song.”

12. Catch Me If You Can (Live – Legend I,D,Z Apocalypse, 2013)

“Awesome melody in the chorus. really nice nu metal sound with a very good homage to classic slipknot. it’s a super fun and catchy song with overall their BEST dance routine of all their songs, and represents all the members well. and like a BABYMETAL song should do, it has the PERFECT mix of kawaii and metal.”

11. Tales of the Destinies (Metal Resistance, 2016)

“I love how they put a little of The One in here to make it sound a little peppier and then a techno piece in the middle. The piano at the end is the most beautiful part, though.”

10. Doki Doki ☆ Morning (Live – Legend I,D,Z Apocalypse, 2013)

“Another kawaii metal masterpiece! And I believe this was their first single ever. “Doki Doki Morning” is the best song “Babymetal” offered.”

9. No Rain, No Rainbow

“This is so catchy and fun… I love it! The song that went viral and made BM world-famous. It is one of the best”

8. Iine! ((Live – Legend I,D,Z Apocalypse, 2013)

“This one is a lot more poppy and techy than their other ones. Shifts from techno, then to a cute little hip-hop section, and immediately into a brutal breakdown!”

7. Gimme Chocolate!! (Babymetal, 2013)

“Christian “the ignorant” grant, this is a song made for fun. These girls are teenagers, you can’t expect them to make songs about politics, war, or experiences because they don’t have any. Lighten up, will ya?”

6. Karate (Metal Resistance, 2016)

“The opening riff is godly. I swear, the Kami band does not get enough credit. But then the chorus is incredible. This song really is a masterpiece.”

5. Akatsuki (Live – Legend I,D,Z Apocalypse, 2013)

“This is a truly majestic power metal song. The guitar work in the song is amazing, the drumming is on point, and Su-metal’s voice is absolutely mesmerizing. She’s just 16, and she’s already a better singer that the majority of literally almost every female singer today. Incredible song.”

4. Road of Resistance (Babymetal, 2014)

“This song is powerful and uplifting while at the same time being insanely fun to listen to. It’s one of the few songs I would give a perfect ten out of ten to, and that’s completely disregarding the fact that it also introduced me to DragonForce.”

3. Head Bangya!! (Babymetal, 2014)

“Catchy, but stays true to the metal genre. Watch the live video and the ending is actually pretty neat. Even if you’re against the cute dancing aspect, it’s still a great song.”

2. Ijime, Dame, Zettai (Live – Legend I,D,Z Apocalypse, 2013)

“IDZ is a perfect demonstration of everything that makes BABYMETAL awesome. Incredible vocals, outstanding choreography, mind-blowing instrumentals, and extremely meaningful lyrics with an important message (No More Bullying Forever). Throw in the fact that it opens with a Wall of Death, and this is easily their best song in my opinion.”

1. Megitsune (Babymetal, 2014)

“The singing in this song is just amazing! The instrumental work is really catchy. And in the middle of the song, there’s a great breakdown that would make you want to bang your head until it falls off!”
