    wow you guys have got some bands mixed up sorry but joan jett jimi hendrix and the rolling stones are definently not heavy metal and don’t get me started on aerosmith and nirvana. Don’t get me wrong they are all great bands but half the bands listed aren’t even heavy metal your picking classic rock and punk rock bands as heavy metal. When I think of heavy metal I think of…

    slayer
    metallica
    anthrax
    megadeth
    black sabbath
    cannibal corpse
    cradle of filth
    dimmu borgir
    rob zombie and white zombie of course
    judas priest
    as blood runs black
    amon amarth
    trivium
    devildriver
    bring me the horizon
    born of osiris
    behemoth
    avenged sevenfold

    and what the heck is up with picking all the panzee poser hair metal bands they are nothing but bull crap ratt, poison, twisted sister bands like that just need to fall off the side of the planet. hair metal isnt metal at all they are all a bunch of sorry excuses for metal bands when metallica first started james hetfield proudly stood on stage and said this song is going to make all these f**king posers die and then started playing metal milita and the posers he was talking about were these sorry excuses for metal bands that pretty much don’t know or care what metal is they just want an excuse to wear some makeup and prance around on stage

  10. Where the fuck is Slipknot they are the Greatest heavy metal band ever.
