Rolling Stone has announced its list of The 100 Greatest Heavy Metal Songs of All Time, and this list….a curious one. Selected by the staff of RS, formerly the world’s most important music magazine, in the 1960s and 70s, has a good list, no doubt. Only a few bands from this list made this century, and weirder still, a good portion of the list is really hard rock and not remotely metal. All the usual suspects Black Sabbath, Slipknot, Metallica, Slayer, Iron Maiden, Dio, Ozzy, Judas Priest, Danzig, Megadeth, that you would have expected are here. Many of your faves are not represented. There are at least a few Death Metal and Black Metal bands. Cool. Lamb of God, is not. Still, people love lists so get ready to be big-time mad!
