101 Cryptopsy Cryptopsy Cryptopsy is a Canadian technical death metal band from Montreal, Quebec, formed in 1988. The band has sold over 300,000 records.

Cryptopsy is awesome. I think the person who added them might've accidentally mistaken this list for the BEST metal band list

One of the best brutal death metal bands behind Suffocation and Nile. - Caleb9000

Cryptopsy were added to this list by mistake or by a troll? - Metal_Treasure

102 Alesana

This is post-hardcore, not metal; I could slightly understand someone putting them on here if they were a metalcore band, but post-hardcore isn't metal. - roarktenjouin

103 Fair to Midland

Fair to Midland are great. You guys are very conflicted.

104 Opeth Opeth Opeth is a Swedish progressive death metal band from Stockholm, formed in 1990. Though the group has been through several personnel changes, singer, guitarist, and songwriter Mikael Åkerfeldt has remained Opeth's only founding member and primary driving force throughout the years.

Whoever voted for Opeth probably judges metal bands by their looks

Opeth is great. Enough said. I have The Candlelight Years. - Metalhead1997

105 Accept Accept Accept is a German heavy metal band from the town of Solingen, originally assembled by former vocalist Udo Dirkschneider, guitarist Wolf Hoffmann and bassist Peter Baltes.

Why is Accept on here?

Good speed metal band, dude. - Metalhead1997

106 T.I.T.S

Judging by the name, I don't even wanna know about this band.

Lol I can imagine before the opening act. The anxious crowd getting impatient and excited shouting "we wants TITS, we want TITS". "What the hell is this?! I came for a live titty show dammit"


107 Nile Nile Nile is an American technical death metal band from Greenville, South Carolina, United States, formed in 1993. Their music and lyrics are inspired by Ancient Egyptian/Near Eastern mysticism, history, religion, and ancient art, as well as the works of H.P. Lovecraft.

Laugh out loud I thought since all the good bands are on this list why not add another?

So, "To Walk Forth From Flames Unscathed" is a bad song? - Metalhead1997

108 Napalm Death Napalm Death Napalm Death are a British grindcore/death metal band formed in Meriden, West Midlands, England, in 1981. While none of its original members remain in the group, the lineup of vocalist Mark "Barney" Greenway, bassist Shane Embury, guitarist Mitch Harris and drummer Danny Herrera has remained consistent ...read more.

The Fathers of Grindcore are on here? Are we sure this kid isn't someone who just made this list because he thinks all metal is bad or something? - Metalhead1997

I love metal, so maybe I just don't "get it" or something. I love death metal, meoldic death, technical death, groove metal, death thrash, and deathcore. I must not be cool enough to listen to grindcore

I love these guys

109 Impaled

These guys SUCK! For real. One of the worst bands of all time.

110 Overkill Overkill Overkill is an American thrash metal band, formed in 1980 in New Jersey. They have gone through many line-up changes, with singer Bobby "Blitz" Ellsworth and bassist D.D.

You people must clearly not enjoy quality music.

Over kill the name says it all.

That vocalist Ellsworth is the worst I've ever heard. He sounds like Nicki Minaj and the singer from ACDC combined.

111 Horse the Band

I hate this band they give me a headache and they pop my ears whenever I listen to em and there pretty nuts and there music is weird and annoying and loud

112 Queensryche Queensryche Queensrÿche is an American heavy metal band formed in 1982 in Bellevue, Washington, out of the local band the Mob.
113 Cattle Decapitation Cattle Decapitation Cattle Decapitation is an American Deathgrind band from San Diego, California formed in 1996. Cattle Decapitation's songs protest the mistreatment and consumption of animals, the abuse of the environment and touch subjects such as misanthropy and genocide of the human race. Much of their music is based ...read more.

I cannot believe the person who put Cattle Decapitation on this list. They are the best death metal band in the world.

I kind of understand why they're on here but they're a pretty good band, especially The Harvest Floor. - Metalhead1997

Death metal isn't my cup of tea but they are good for the genre and are absolutely brutal

114 RavenHeart

These guys suck so bad I can't even describe it... They are a bunch of old guys who are trying to rock out 1 more time and they suck on so many levels at what they do!

115 Spinal Tap

Um...this band is a fake one. Made for a film like the band from Rockstar and School of Rock. - Metalhead1997

I can't believe no one put them on the list! I love the movie, but they sucked. I almost lost control when I found out they're on Spotify.

116 Absurd Absurd

The worst band ever

What blithering idiot added Queen? They aren't even metal, they're one of the greatest ROCK bands ever. Completely wrong list...

Queen isn't even metal but they have made some absolute CLASSICS. - Metalhead1997
