So, there's a lot lot of songs that might be overall that good, but might have an amazing chorus or verse or outro etc.

One obvious (to me, at least) example from Edguy, is Matrix. Above average riffs and verses, but that chorus.. one of their best!

Another one would be I Disappear by Metallica. Still have the creaky guitars and noisy drums from their previous albums, and pretty much non-existent verses. And then there's the incredible chorus. Probably the most catchy they've ever written!

Bonus example: The Piper Never Dies. Great song, but the outro is of another level. Simply my favorite music section ever.

Any others?

A few that come to mind:

Iron Maiden - Public Enema Number One
Love the verse, but the chorus sucks all the energy out of it.

Morbid Angel - Radikult
This song is awful. Not sure what they were thinking. Great solo though.

Type O Negative - Be My Druidess
Another one with a brilliant verse, really atmospheric. Then the "I'll do anything..." section arrives and the song quality dips.

Avantasia - The Great Mystery
The chorus is pure gold. The rest of the song is far too patchy for my liking though.
