What? 11th place? What is the world coming to? I think Metallica is the best Metal band out there and I would choose Metallica any day over Linkin Park or Green Day. Not that I think Linkin Park and Green Day aren't good enough-I love 'em- but Metallica kicks ass! Definitely should be among the Top Ten.

22 One Republic

They released "Secrets" that year. That should already put them higher on this list.
