    >>>without some quantification of what they mean by "important" i cant see how anyone can criticize this, other than to say that such lists are an incredibly lazy excuse for journalism


    Good post. Just an article created to spark interest and sell magazines.

    This is not a most important METAL band list it is just an important band list. Get rid of Marilyn Manson and throw in Black Sabbath or Pink Floyd and I think it's all right. All those bands are innovators of genres, even if I and most other metalheads dislike them.

    ok you gotta start off with the people who actually STARTED music...
    Ozzy Ozbourne
    Metallica
    Slayer
    and so on...

    I think Opeth is a very important band that needs to be on that listen and I think you should die for even mentioning the band green day, wow, wtf...

    I love how it's a "most important bands ever" list, free of genres, yet The Beatles don't get mentioned.

    I don't see how Norma Jean are influencel they've only been around for a little while and they're not doing anything most other metalcore bands are doing. Maybe I haven't heard enough of them, but I definitely would not consider them anymore important than any other metalcore bands.

    The Beatles should be number one and GnR shouldn't be near that high.
