Eh, Not The Alice Song I would've put on the list. Nice Guy or Schools out probably would've been better. Still a good song.

Underrated Classic, Yes They're AC/DC wannabes, But who the flying fuck cares..Ironically VH1 also put this on the "Bad Metal" Top 40 list..

Black Sabbath was the first ever metal band, If they didn't make the list more than twice...Than hell will be felt.

Rap Metal Done Right.

Anthrax fucking rules..

Does Manson deserve a spot here? Not with this song and not this deep, put him at like 40 and make it "The Fight Song" and I'll agree with you..

Maiden Fucking Rules!

Another one of those bands that deserve multiple apperances..

I'll post my opinions about the top 20 later on..

But honestly, why isn't there any CVH on this list?

'Cause VH-1 are about as relevant and validating as Rolling Stone?

System of a Down? Rage Against the machine? Slipknot? Korn? You gotta be fucking shitting me.....Like most lists, it's a joke, because it's not being compiled by true, long-time Metal fans.

Funny and true.

Always enjoy VH1Classic, though, meself.

Hey, think about it this way, it's not flooded with hair metal, there's only five shitty bands listed, and most of these songs are classics. Although I will agree, whoever voted Slipknot and Korn on here needs to be shot

At least they left the pussy hair bands off the list. Too bad they couldn't have done the same with the Korn/Slipknot garbage

Totally predictable list......

09-05-2006, 02:18 PM
Slipknot are a band I actually quite like, but there is no way that they should be in the top 40 - no way at all.

Korn, so poor I can't even be arsed to think of an insult.

Half the people on this site could have come up with a stronger list than that....

09-05-2006, 05:05 PM
Marilyn Manson??? Slipknot??? Korn??? Rage??? They can fuck right off for putting that shit on the list.

"Bring the Noise"? From the entire Anthrax catalog they pick that steaming pile of horseshit? They did manage to pick some deserving bands, but almost all the songs are just plain wrong!
