The Top Ten
I don't this song is heavy enough for metal standards.
This song is Nu Metal. - TheDarkOne_221b
I don't need to explain this one to be honest.
It comes close but still qualifies as rock.
The only modern song on this list I can actually agree with. - NuMetalManiak
I think this one is self explanatory.
It takes more than a heavy riff to qualify as metal.
Yes, I'd rather call Afterlife a metal song. This song is between punk rock and hard rock. Maybe Synyster Gates played hard rock lead and Zacky Vengeance punk rhythm. - zxm
Hard Rock but no where near Metal.
Hard Rock is what it comes down to.
No explanation needed.
Alternative Rock no where near Metal.
Still really heavy though. - Userguy44
Hard Rock/ Alt. Rock at best.
The opening intro riff is still very confusing. But this is an average hard rock/blues rock (heavy blues) riff. - zxm
Deep Purple is a metal band. And this song is not very heavy. But some of the strumming of this song are heavy. It's a hard psych rock song. - zxm
