Pretty decent list actually.  I would flip flop a lot of artists on there though. Mercyful Fate at only 24?!!

Yeah, the deserve to be #1 on every top heavy metal bands list.

Surprised that Judas Priest wasn't # 2 actually.

I mostly agree with the choices, although the definition of heavy metal is very broad.

I thought it was a little pretentious.  jimi hendrix? come on.  I would have had priest and sabbath sharing the top spot after all sabbath defines heavy, but priest defines metal!!  Trouble and Fates Warning too yo

I would have left Hendrix off entirely, because he wasn't heavy metal. He was certainly a forerunner of metal, but I would have called him psychedelic.

Likewise, there's quite a bit of prog rock on the list. Rush? Zeppelin? Great bands. Certainly had an influence on metal, but not metal.

Sigh...another list by someone who apparently doesn't know what "metal" means.

LOL.  Prog rock and the blues are now heavy metal  Buggedout  Sounds like a list my folks would make up, i.e. if the kid listens to it, it's heavy metal.

Two guys at Yahoo! should be fired...
The guy who creates these flawed lists (also for wearing that stupid hat) and the idiot who hired him.

Seriously, Rush and Van Halen are heavy metal??  Yeah, right.

One of those folks who thinks everything with an electric guitar, a loud vocal and a beat is heavy metal. By that definition, Elvis should have been on the list.

Okay, I guess it's about time for me to wade in... I no longer have an excuse...  Lookingup 
I'm not a huge fan of Metal, whatever that might be, but if it's good, I'll like it, and my collection does include LED ZEP, MOTORHEAD, METALLICA, GUNS N' ROSES, VAN HALEN... uhm, and JIMI HENDRIX of course (I won't argue his inclusion on the list.) 

Some bands were considered Schlock in their day, I don't know anymore, BLACK SABBATH has come a long way since the 1970s when they were viewed as a fringe parody... URIAH HEEP were lame as I recall... AEROSMITH, THIN LIZZY Metal?   But who could argue with KISS, AC/DC , or JUDAS PRIEST??  The author is right about DEEP PURPLE being forgotten.  For once, I agree with this guy's list for the most part, but not a fan of much of it.

Ok if Hendrix is on the list, then where the hell is The Who?

Hendrix is GREAT, but he's not Heavy Metal, he is in a class of his own ... pioneer.
