22 Isis

How is ISIS only at 24? I'll grudgingly accept Top5 but Top25 is unacceptable.

23 Black Sheep Wall
24 Sleep

Because it belongs at the very top with Electric Wizard.

Great, but not Sludge Metal. They are Stoner Metal, you kids will eventually learn!

Tf they should be number one. They are the definition of sludge.

25 Torche

Torche brings a pop sensation to sludge.

26 Red Fang Red Fang Red Fang is an American heavy metal band from Portland, Oregon, formed in 2005. It is composed of guitarist and vocalist Bryan Giles, bassist and vocalist Aaron Beam, guitarist David Sullivan and drummer John Sherman.

Just great stoner metal, but while everyone rocks out I tip my cap to the rhythm guitar.

27 Grief

The most widely copied and imitated of all the original sludge bands. Everybody rips off these guys to this very day and they are hardly ever mentioned. 'I Hate the Human Race' is THE SLUDGE ANTHEM
