Top 10 Metal Musicians Featured in We Rock by Metal Allegiance
We Rock is a Dio song that was covered in 2015 by Metal Allegiance. Metal Allegiance is a supergroup composed of many metal musicians.
We Rock is a great Dio song, Dio was great, too (R.I.P Dio) and recording this cover song with many metal musicians is a fantastic idea. Watching the video makes me happy.
Musicians on this list didn't take part equally in the song performance - some of them sang and played significant sections of the song while others just said 1-2 words. Of course, the top spots on this list are for the musicians who did more for this song and not the musicians who are more popular.
Metalheads, are you ready to rock and sing the chorus "We Rock!" with them?
