Saxon are an original rock band that should be up there with iron maiden?
Saxon deserve more respect
Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, Saxon... Should be the first 3 everyone is is a wanna-be.
Who votes on this list as most of the best bands are in the 80's mark!
Saxon at 98...wow people don't know anything about metal. Over half the bands ahead of them are either not really metal or just complete garbage. Saxon is a classic metal band and one of the greats, very talented.V 6 Comments
They are an awesome heavy metal band. Also, they are the type of singers that have most of their songs with screaming but some that are slow or not very loud.
Come on people! RED is one of the best rock/metal bands ever. Great music, great lyrics and great guys!
I love every thing about them, Great Guitar, great Lyrics, and I love their use of a strings section.
RED Deserves to be so much higher. Best screamer I've ever heard besides Ryan Clark.V 2 Comments
Black Sabbath without Ozzy is not Back Sabbath, it is Heaven and Hell. Both vocalists were indispensable.V 2 Comments
Rush at 87? Are you people insane? First of all three person band. And one of those happens to be Neil Peart the best drummer of all time.
Actually you can not rate them in a list of heavy metal bands. They should be placed on the top 10 of best 100 progressive/hard-rock bands ever together with Cream, Hendrix, Zepp and the likes.
"Rush" - Always amazing musicians skill wow
"86" nah sorry mate
Don't classified them as HM
But best musicians ever
Should be number 1
KREATOR IS NUMBER 83 AND AVENGED SEVENFOLD IS IN THE TOP 10 AND BLACK VEIL BRIDES IS UP THERE. I think some people don't know the meaning of "heavy metal" because a lot of the bands on here don't come close to qualifying as heavy metal. Vote for bands like megadeth anthrax accept judas priest black sabbath rainbow overkill manowar slayer. Escape the fate is not heavy metal -__- METAL LIVES m/
Heavy Metal legends, probably the best thrash metal band. Incredibly unappreciated and extremely underrated.
Everyone knows how great Kreator are, don't worry. Awakening of the Gods rules!
My top 20 heavy metal band goes like this.1 Black sabbath 2 Iron maiden 3 Judas priest 4 Megadeth 5 Mettalica 6 Pantera 7 Slayer 8 Motorhead 9 Death 10 kreator 11 Morbid angel 12 Venom 13 Lamb of god 14 slipknot 15 Sepultera 16 Bathory 17 Anthrax 18 Cannibal corpse 19 obituary 20 children of bodo. - shivendraV 2 Comments
Come on! King Diamond Should be at least #10. In the words of Jason Newsted: "There's no one quite like King Diamond".
Should be placed as number 100, go home and knitting a blouse
No, King Diamond and Stryper should not be top ten, they should both be at #666.
He is named king for a reason, should be number one.V 1 Comment

JUST THE BEST BEAST BAND IN THE WORLD
Perfect music + perfect show + imazinesion = LORDI
I am not cirios they are more hard rock production heavy metal B.T.W. they are perfectV 7 Comments
Nothing beats these soulfly songs : 'eye for an eye' tribe, carved inside; blood fire war hate.
A couple of decent attempts at Sepultura-esque thrash, and a few crap attempts at nu-metal. I own 'Archangel' and it's dreadful.
Awesome band and unto the locust is the best album released in a long time...by anyone.
Best band in the world. But this list still sucks.
GOD DAMN IT! How could Machine Head not be Top 15!

Best metal band ever
Best guitar player ever! No match for him!
There are two types guitarist in the World. Malmsteen and others. He is best...
The duo from Dragonforce eat guys like him for breakfast.
This is a photo of porn star Traci Lords on her 17th birthday.
A black metal band with good riffs and atmosphere that doesn't rely on controversy to get attention.V 1 Comment
A great metal band - better than Metallica or any of today's garbage, including the overrated Opeth and Dream Theater.
Wasp helped create metal you bunch for them to be this low on the list is a polling and doesn't say much for today's so-called metal fans.
W.A.S.P. are one of the main bands that came out in the 80's. They should be in the top ten
Just one word.. LEGENDSV 6 Comments
Amazing band! Every song is good, heavy and every band member is so talented (especially the drummer and vocals).
Takes a track or two but then your hooked!
Listen to Flying Whales. It is a masterpiece.
Probably one of the best metal bands in the 2010'sV 1 Comment
Great band, good and professional concert facility for behemoth in future, could be the maritime horsens music art city in denmark.V 3 Comments
They should At least be 10 on the list, each song they have sets an entirely different mood to the Last!
Breaking Benjamin is one of the best bands ever. Can't believe they are placed such down the list. Their lyrics is simply awesome & kinda rejuvenates your soul. Deserves to be in Top 10.
Breaking Benjamin is one of the best bands. They should be one of the top ten.
In the top tenV 9 Comments
