Their last songs were good but there best songs were sung in the seventies. For example, Bohemian Rhapsody, We are the Champions and Somebody to Love. - aldwych94

Their best album in my opinion was Innuendo which was the last one! Then also the miracle is a great album. The last 2 they recorded before Freddies death.

Not getting better over time, DM (2008) was their first really good album since the black album (1991), and that wasn't nearly as good as ride the lightning (1984). Metallica is a classic, their one good recent album doesn't mean they're necessarily improving - Songsta41

This band is one of the most succesaful!

Yes but remember the cuestion, is Metallica gettiing better with the years! Nnno you retards they become lazy and famous and no more albums like ride the lightning or master of puppets

63 Deftones Deftones Deftones are an American alternative metal band from Sacramento, California. The band, which was founded in 1988, consists of Chino Moreno, Stephen Carpenter, Frank Delgado, Abe Cunningham and Sergio Vega.

They've come a long way from their nu metal roots, coming from Adrenaline to alternative metal masterpieces, Diamond Eyes and Koi No Yokan. And they've never released a bad album.

Going from an average at best band, with albums like Around the Fur and Adrenaline, then evolving into one of the best alternative/post metal bands around with White Pony and Diamond Eyes.

Diamond eyes is probably one of my favorite albums of all time.

64 DragonForce DragonForce DragonForce are a British power metal band based in London, England. Formed in 1999, the group are known for their long and fast guitar solos, fantasy-themed lyrics, and electronic sounds in their music to add to their retro video game-influenced sound.

They've improved so much, especially with their new singer Marc Hudson

You have to give them credit for attempting to change their sound but the fact of the matter is their first two albums are way better than a nothing that followed

Their first few albums were absolutely amazing. Yes they changed their sound and I personally like their past sound better. But their music has not gotten worse at all, its just extended a bit and they are trying new things. The quality itself is better. They are still amazing, eventhough I still think their best album was A Rush Of Blood To the Head.

Not at all. Not even a little bit. Coldplay wrote amazing songs, and even though they didn't change their style, their overall songwriting just decreased in quality. - Songsta41
