The 25 Best Metal Bands of All Time

I like the Metal Sucks website as the people that run it have a sharp sense of humor. They were counting down the Top 25 Best Metal Bands of All Time and posted a fake #1 - Manowar before revealing that their real #1 band was Black Sabbath. I'm okay with Black Sabbath as number 1. Here's my opinion on whether the band should be on this list. The ???? means I can't name a single song by them so I can't really judge and there are 9 of those in the list. That means 64% of the bands on this list are ones I agree with. Not terrible, but not spectacular. Seems I would be needing to do some research on youtube.com in the near future. Check this post in the future for the ???? bands to be changed to include a link to the specific songs the website used as evidence that the band is great.

Hell, maybe I'll change this to be a "Page" and put a link to my personal favorite song by every one of these bands! That's an idea!
