"Top 10 Greatest Heavy Metal Bands Of All Time," according to MTV.com 's panel of "experts":

01. BLACK SABBATH
02. JUDAS PRIEST
03. METALLICA
04. IRON MAIDEN
05. PANTERA
06. SLAYER
07. AC/DC
08. MOTÖRHEAD
09. KISS
10. MÖTLEY CRÜE

now personally i think the last 4 should be off because every1 hear whos a AC/DC fan has heard angus and every1 say "Were a rock n roll band thats all weve said to be"
now if this was a greatest bands list it would be pretty good if AC/DC was number 1

Iron Maiden, Black Sabbath, Motorhead and Judas Priest are the only true metal bands on that list.

Damn straight AC/DC is WAY better than Metalica(SELL OUT BAND), but AC/DC shouldn't even be on that list, they're ROCK N ROLL, not metal, how many times do I have to tell people? Not only do they sound nothing like metal, they feel it an insult when people label them as that. Read the album notes in "The Razor's Edge."

Pantera and Slayer is just noise, and Kiss and Motley Crue both SUCK, more sell out bullsh*t.

01. BLACK SABBATH
02. JUDAS PRIEST
03. IRON MAIDEN
04. MOTÖRHEAD
05. VENOM
06. MERCYFUL FATE
07. DEATH
08. HELLOWEEN
09. METALLICA
10. CELTIC FROST
Not the best list but a lot more like it. Greatness means the biggest influence and how much they contributed to the genre, not how popular.

iron maiden are no doubt the pioneers of metal, in all areas. what about dream theater? progressive metal is as metal as anything, and bands like them set a great trend for so many bands to come.

as warden suggested, bands like venom and helloween certainly deserve recognition in the list. kiss and motley need i say more, an absolute joke in my eyes. even deep purple deserve to bethere, they set the trend for the top 4 bands on this list

1. maiden
2.sabbath
3.judas priest
4.dream theater
5. deep purple
6. motorhead
7. testament
8. metallicca
9.megadeth
10. pantera

"Damn straight AC/DC is WAY better than Metalica(SELL OUT BAND)"

Metallica is has way better and way more complex songs than AC/DC, cutting your hair doesn't mean your selling out (though they looked quite...gayish when they released Load, and the stuff about Napster was total bullcr*p).

My list would be:

1. Black Sabbath (They basically made heavy metal)
2. Metallica (Basically started the style we today know as thrash metal, repeatedly mentioned as the most famous metal band in the world)
3. Judas Priest (Heavy metal pioneers)
4. Motörhead (One of the best heavy metal bands to roam the earth)
5. Iron Maiden (Another great heavy metal band)
6. Pantera (Without them, heavy metal would have nearly died in the '90s)
7. Venom (Credited by thrash metal bands as a big influence)
8. Megadeth (Another great thrash metal band)
9. Mercyful Fate (Probably the best black metal band there is/was)
10. Death (Death metal's best)

1. Black Sabbath (invented heavy metal)
2. Judas Priest (metal gods)
3. Motörhead (invented thrash)
4. Metallica (made thrash metal popular)
5. Slayer (THE extreme metal band, not slipknot)
6. Iron Maiden (clean vocals with bad-ass guitar)
7. Pantera (simple, yet heavy)
8. Dragonforce (speed metal)
9. Venom (influenced a lot of thrash bands)
10. In Flames (best death metal band)

The list is not at all ranked by popularety, should be at last more! Metallica is way to high! They are there just becouse they are the most famous metal band! Iron Maiden is too low, they have had the secound most influence of all metal band, behind Black Sabbath, they have the best live shows, and best vocals in the history of heavy metal. If this was a hard rock list, ac dc should have been higher, and metallica woulden fall this far. But this is my list:
1. Black Sabbath (Invented Heavy Metal & Hard Rock)
2. Iron Maiden (Invented speed & power metal, as well as they have the best bass player and best vocals)
3. Motorhead (Took a huge step forward of beeing heavy, as well as the invented trash metal)
4. Ac/Dc (Started the trend of long guitar solos)
5. Metallica & Slayer (They advanced with trash metal, both inspired by motorhead & maiden)
6.--------->
7. Judas Priest (One of the first band's to start the NWOBHM)
8. Led Zeppelin (Not actually heavy metal, but the inspired Black Sabbath alot, made sabbath advance from hard rock to metal)
9. Deep Purple (Smoke on the water...)
10. Kiss, Pantera, Megadeth, Dream Theater ect!
