Vote for the greatest metal band of all time

We're compiling the definitive list of the world's best metal bands and we need your help

We've all been there: a heated debate over a pub table, a furiously-typed battle on a music forum, rage-quitting the group chat because no one will just bloody well admit you're right. It's a question which has plagued metalheads since the genre began: who is the best metal band of all time?

Well, we're on a mission to find out, and we need your help. We've assembled a long-list of 115 bands we believe worthy challengers to the title, and now it's over to you to vote for your favourite.

Perhaps you're a purist who believes the original is always best so you'll be voting Black Sabbath. Or, maybe you're a thrash warrior who believe Anthrax were actually the Big Four's most important pillar. Defenders of the faith, you'll find Judas Priest in the long-list below.

While we've tried to ensure that old metal, nu metal and new metal are all amply represented, if we've missed your most-loved band from the list, there's also an option to add your own to the poll below.

Each voter is given five votes, so think hard and make them count. We'll be publishing the results in the coming weeks, so make sure to check back for the final 50, as voted by you.

Re: Vote for the greatest metal band of all time

Just went ahead and voted for Metallica. Didn't take the time to look over all the other bands since I don't know most of them anyways.

I might have voted for Soundgarden had they been on there. I know they're generally considered grunge, but they're also straight up metal as well.

Anyone voting for Babymetal?

There are some odd choices on there. Definitely some bands that likely wouldn't consider themselves metal.
