The ranking is laced with the heavy hitters of the year that unsurprisingly also landed on Loudwire's year-end albums list. We're talking Megadeth, Lamb of GodLorna Shore and more. Of course, there are also 2022 tracks from Machine Head and several others.

Now, just imagine yourself, sunglasses on, blowing down some two-lane desert highway in a sporty vintage coupe. The beast's musty speakers blast the best heavy metal of the year straight into your eager ears. You have never been more alive. What song is playing?

Anyway, all that said, keep scrolling down below to see the 12 tracks that Liquid Metal has picked for their "Best of 2022" songs list. (And right underneath that, see a list of the most anticipated upcoming rock and metal releases for 2023).
