The Top 25 Best Metal Bands of All Time

Everyone I'm sure loves some metal band out there. According to a music site, for some reason, called MetalSucks, stupid name for a site devoted to heavy metal, they compiled a list of the top 25 best metal bands of all time. Here they are. And I'm definitely glad to see the Big 4 from Britain on this list. For those unfamiliar with the so-called "Big 4", it applies to the four biggest thrash metal bands from America- Metallica, Anthrax, Slayer and Megadeth. It would seem Britain has their own version- Black Sabbath, Judas Priest, Iron Maiden and Motorhead. Glad to see they made it on here. As well they should- they inspired dozens of bands!!!

-It's been said that no matter what genre of music exists, it could not have existed with a little help from the boys of Birmingham, that's right. The Godfather of British Heavy Metal themselves
