Top 10 Albums by Metal Artists that Hit Number 1 on the Billboard 200

The album itself doesn't have to be a Metal album but it has to be by a Metal artist

The Top Ten

1 Metallica (Black Album) - Metallica

The best selling Metal album of all time - christangrant

2 Hardwired... to Self-Destruct - Metallica

Blocking 24k magic by Bruno Mars as well so it did not have an easy time to reach number one.

The most recent metal album to hit number 1 - christangrant

3 Far Beyond Driven - Pantera
4 Death Magentic - Metallica
5 Hysteria - Def Leppard

Now this album is not a metal album but there wasn't many albums by metal bands that hit number 1 on Billboard 200 the only reason this album is here is because Def Leppard is considered a Metal band on the Metal Archives but this album is not metal just to clarify and that's why it's not higher on my list - christangrant
