@LightningBlade - you are right Megadeth should be higher (they are on the list - Best thrash band). They are low now because the list is new and hasn't had enough remixes and votes to get Megadeth higher. The goal of the first items I added was to list many categories that voters can use further by replacing the names. I honestly expected Megadeth to be added quickly and I personally focused on more obscure bands/categories. No disrespect to Megadeth, you can see they are in my Top 10 twice. - Metal_Treasure
Not even close. Overkill, Exodus, Kreator, Slayer, Annihilator, and Venom are all better. - DarkenedBrutality
