Greatest Heavy Metal Bands of All Time

220 items ranked

This list includes all music that could be considered metal ranging from classic Metal (Judas Priest) through Nu Metal (Tool) to the new version of Thrash Metal (Slipknot). I am sure people will have differing opinions, but that is what these lists are all about.

Iced Earth Report Abuse
First the songwriting is some of the best in metal, the guitars are just plain awsome, the band just has a different sound which is refreshing since there are a lot of bands out there that sound the same now. Those are just some of the reasons. And if you are a Maiden fan at all you have to check this band out!

I agree that maiden fans maybe could like them. I am big maiden fan and I think they are quite good. Not top 10 but probably top 50 or something like that.

Marilyn Manson Report Abuse
20 points - added 14 years ago by guest - 2 comments
Comments:
Manson is a 360-degrees artist. He sings, he plays music, he paints, he writes books. He certainly is an intriguing character who played well his cards. Always associated with the anti-Christ, he became more of a trend. Listening to his music meant to rebel against society, school, the parents...There's more to it than just the music. He has a talented band though, when it comes to industrial music, they should be always listed in the Top 3 Bands together with Rammstein and Manson's friend's band Nine Inch Nails.
