Very underrated they were one of the first groove metal bands

Yes, it is rumoured Pantera stole their sound, but Pantera made mince meat out of these guys. Quality thrash though.

These guys are pretty much the reason Pantera became popular

370 Ratt Ratt Ratt is an American heavy metal band that had significant commercial success in the 1980s, with their albums having been certified as gold, platinum, and multi-platinum by the RIAA.

I can listen to Ratt for hours straight because I like every single song they've done. They're another crossover into my hard rock list. Saw them with Stryper, and they were amazing.

You saw Ratt with Stryper? My goodness! Was the crowd all holding hands during this bill of bills? Did you get a missionary position afterwards?

One of the kings of glam. Even I own 'Out of the Cellar'.

428? are you kidding me people?

371 Silencer
372 Warlock

Walock... Here?! Well Maybe I do not listen to their music but they should be so much higher, being the first metal band with a female vocalist.

373 Coroner Coroner Coroner is a Swiss thrash metal band from Zürich, formed in the early 80s. They have been called "the Rush of thrash metal" for their increasingly complex style of progressive rock-infused thrash. They garnered relatively little attention outside Europe .

Incredibly underrated band should be much higher

Definitely underrated, popularity-wise. But definitely not by those inside the metal world.
