Greatest Heavy Metal Bands of All Time

217 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.

Mushroomhead Report Abuse

Comments:
other way round. slipknot ripped-off mushroomhead. mushroomhead were formed two years before slipknot. the important thing to remember in all of this is that neither band is any good.

Seriously bad, everything about them sucks, the vocals, the lame chords and keyboards. Not to mention the maks, totally taken from Slipknot. No originality whatsoever and just plain bad taste music.

Avenged Sevenfold Report Abuse
the greatest band ever there guitar solos are amazing, and Jimmy Sullivan is by far the most talented drummer, because he had such a good rythm with the double bass, and could pretty much play whatever he wanted, and Synyster Gates has such talent in putting together his guitar solos, and dont forget zacky and matt and the bassists

everyone thought they were a joke..... then one of band members dies (a tragedy for his family and the fans of course, cant deny that), then suddenly everyone think they are legends. sorry guys it doesnt work like that. they sucked before and will probably always suck

I cant believe that AS is so far down here! They are the pinnacle of metal. Synyster makes the most amazing riffs and The Rev is an amazing drummer!! Amazing band all around. YEAH!!!!

Linkin Park Report Abuse
-131 points - added 10 years ago by thegrizz - 5 comments
Comments:
Now this band seriously pisses me off. They have absolutely no talent and it really shows when you accidentally hear them play live. They are a disgrace, no idea how they managed signing for a major label. They are labeled as "nu-metal" and sure enough, they ruin the reputation of the other so-called "nu-metal" bands. Even though whoever is into old-school metal doesn't even want to hear about nu-metal bands, there sure are talented ones out there. Korn and Slipknot are an example. Korn deserve the thumbs up for coming up with a new kind of music, they attemped something new and they did it brilliantly in the 90's, although now they seem to have lost their path. Slipknot are talented from a technical point of view. They sure have one of the best drummers around! Linking Park have nothing to do with this kind of nu-metal, they truly are a joke.

Linkin Park isn't metal, even the band members themselves have said that. Shouldn't be on the list.
