4 Guns - Janne Da Arc UListen to Sample
5 What's Up People - Maximum the Hormone

How come your not voting for the HEAVIEST song on this list? L'arc IS NOT heavy at all! Especially that song! All I have to say to you guys is WHAT"S UP PEOPLE!?

Seriously? How can you say you heard ANYTHING heavy if you haven't heard WHAT'S UP PEOPLE? MTH and DEG own heavy music!

Just listen to it. The only bands that deserve to be on this list are Maximum the Hormone and Dir En Grey. Every other band I've heard on this list are way too soft.

Oh my, there is only one statement I can describe such an internet atrocity...
