123 Faith no More Faith no More Faith No More is an American rock band from San Francisco, California, formed in 1979. Before settling on their current moniker in 1983, the band performed under the names Sharp Young Men and later Faith No Man.

Whoever added this band. I hope you die of cancer. I am serious.

The keyboardist did the music for the Fred movie. No wonder they deserve to be on here.

Probably the band that ushered that sound/trend ALTERNATIVE METAL.
because you either had the rock of Guns 'n' Roses/Poison or thrashy noise of Metallica/Slayer...in 1988 FNM were the new alternative.

125 Belphegor Belphegor Belphegor is a blackened death metal band from Salzburg, Austria. They originally formed in 1991 under the name Betrayer before changing their name in 1993. They are named after the demon Belphegor.

Horrible, a disgrace to death metal. They're huge posers, and all their songs are the same. The uncleans are lazy and boring. Their lyrical content is disgusting and thoughtless. Doesn't sounds brutal it just sounds like garbage.

They are considered either the greatest metal band of all time, in the top 3 metal bands of all time. There is no denying their success. They have probably the largest fanbase of any metal band ever.

Iron Maiden is on top 5 best Heavy Metal bands ever. If you have ever seen them perform live, you would agree.
