And yes, zxm is right and his example is great. Most of the bands on this list are punk-based. But punk is different from metal. - Metal_Treasure

This list makes me sad - out of the 11 bands mentioned here, only 3 are metal: Slayer, Black Sabbath and Stratovarius. Respectively, out of the 19 songs on this list, only 3 are metal. And these 3 songs are nowhere near the best metal songs of the 21st Century. Check out my lists:

It's not metal. It's PUNK ROCK.

Update: Finally found something. If you don't believe me what I'm saying then check this video on YouTube "Punk vs Metal" by Charlie Parra del Riego. - zxm
