  • The 30 Best Metal Singles Of 2021
    POSTED 22 Dec 2021

    30 bestComing off of the back of the dumpster fire that was 2020, we all had high hopes for 2021 here at Maniacs. While some of those hopes were quickly squashed by yet another variant of the virus that shall not be named, at least one of them, the desire to hear top-shelf new music from our favourite metal, punk, hardcore and rock acts, was not just lived up to, but well and truly exceeded.

    In fact, the quality of music from the heavier end of the spectrum was so next level this year, that we had to split our best singles of the year into three different lists, one for metal, one for punk/rock and one for Aussie artists to ensure we included all the worthy bangers and we still feel like we left out more than a few worthy contenders off of the list.  So with apologies to many and congratulations to 30, listed in alphabetical order, by artist, here are the 30 best metal singles of 2021 according to us.
