i agree with you Jeff. Metallica are surely one of the best heavy metal bands of all time. But choices like these normally come down to the popularity of the band. We can see this in many questions involving great bands. For example, could you decide who is the best band of all time when there are choices like Led Zeppelin,Queen,Dire Strait,The Doors,The Beattles and many others? I think all of this depends on the popularity of the band. If someone asked us about heavy metal bandas we would probably talk about Metallica or Slipknot because these bands are probably the most popular and if we are going to choose using this criteria, we would probably pick Metallica

Metallica is the best heavy metal band of all time. not only they produced (take note of the D as past tense used) and play the heaviest (with sense) songs on earth, they also inspire other bands who are in metal, and also the kids! they are the one who sang the thrash metal anthem of all time, and i believe Metallica will be reborn and be the baddest kings of thrash metal again!

I liked Metallica till the black album. However, since then (Load and Reload, St. Anger), they have been extremely crappy and seem a pale shadow of themselves. My favorite metal band of all time would have to be Megadeth. I think they still rock and are actually more accessible than Metallica, though not quite as popular. I really can't figure out why...

I think Metallica is the best heavy metal band of all time. I would even go on to say, I think Metallica is the best BAND of all time. I'm sure many people would dispute that, but I don't care. My opinion will always be, they are the greatest of all time. Too many classics from them. Sure St Anger was bad, but whether you liked Load and Reload or not, you have to admit it was quality music.

Welll...Metallica is now the greatest heavy metal band and, for me, Metallica, Iron Maiden and ACDC are nowadays "The Gods of Heavy Metal"...but Black Sabbath is the greatest heavy metal band of all time.... My final opinion is like Black Sabbath create the Heavy Metal and Metallica definitely improved it.. :D

I don't really listen to heavy metal, but I do listen to Metallica. For me, their music its not just about speed and distortion, but their songs are melodic. This is what makes me keep on listening to them. Some of my favourite songs are Nothing Else Matters, Master of Puppets, One, Fade to Black and Cyanide. As I am an electric guitarist, I found that I can learn a lot from their songs. And I am always surprised by their songs, like odd tempos, change of key etc..

I don't know if they're the best, but certainly the most popular. I don't know of too many other heavy metal bands, so my vote would be for Metallica.
