67Blue CheerBlue Cheer was an American rock band that initially performed and recorded in the late 1960s and early 1970s and was sporadically active until 2009. Based in San Francisco, Blue Cheer played in a psychedelic blues rock style, and are also credited as being some of the earliest pioneers of heavy metal, more.

This power trio cut their first album (Vincebus Eruptum) in 1967 and featured the best version of Summertime Blues ever recorded in my opinion. They were pioneers of the power trio.

68Grand Magus
69SodomSodom is a German thrash metal band from Gelsenkirchen, formed in 1981. They have gone through many line-up changes, leaving bassist vocalist Tom Angelripper as the only constant member.
70Wolfmother more.

As a 50+ yr old female not sure my vote will count for much. But saw a couple videos for this band and was impressed by their vocals and the flow of their music. And the meanings (my interpretations of course) of their songs, I enjoyed this band very much.
I think they should be MUCH higher on this list!
