This list of my personal greatest heavy metal bands ever will rock your socks off. It includes some of the biggest metal band icons that ever lived and gave us some amazing songs to mosh too whether out in a club or just around the house. Did your favorite band end up on my list?
Quick disclaimer this is my personal list so don’t be offended if I leave any bands out. Also, this is purely just Metal bands not other sub genres of metal. With that said let’s kick this off with my top metal band.
Korn was my first love of metal and for that, they will always be my number one band. I actually have a big Korn tattoo on my back. I admit before the last album which was great they went down hill a little bit but my love for them never changed. favorite songs have to be Freak on a leash and Somebody, Someone.
Linkin Park is metal gods. The sad news of Chester’s passing has shaken the alternative industry to the core. His amazing holistic’s and beautiful clean vocals were just perfect. Linkin Park will never be the same without him. Rip Chester hope you’re rocking it up there. Favorite songs are Numb and Heavy
Metallica is played in every rock club you could ever go in. Its hard to stay seated when one of their songs come on because the dance-floor just yells your name. My favorite has always been Enter The Sandman and it has never failed to get me on my feet and So What.
Guns N Roses:
These guys have been rocking it for a very long time now and I don’t think Axel’s voice has changed much at all since they started. Favorite songs have to be November rain and Paradise City.
Alice In Chains:
Lane Staley had one of the most amazing voices I have ever had the pleasure of listening too. They had songs for all occasions but my favorite songs are Nutshell and Rooster.
System Of A Down:
These guys are unique, to say the least, and for most of their songs, they must have been on one hell of a high while writing them. My favorite songs are Chop Suey and Sugar.
His voice gives me chills right to the bone and I don’t think he has done a song that I didn’t like. Favorite songs are Dope Show and Mobscene.
The number of people I’ve seen including myself jumping up onto dance-floor soon as the first beats of their songs boom over the speaker is amazing. favorite songs Du Hast and Ich Will.
What can I say about these guys other than they look amazing and have some truly amazing songs? They are definitely metal gods. Favorite songs Rock N Roll All Night and Shout It Loud.
Slipknot had to be on the list because of their amazing vocals, high energy, and great songs. Favorite songs are Duality and Wait And Bleed.
So they are my greatest metal bands ever. Whats yours?
