You're asking for our crazy manical opinions, are you out of your mind?! LOL

1. Powerman 5000, not only do they sing metal but they can adapt to any genre and any style that appeals to them!  Plus; the lead singer has random and erratic dance moves, it's not any fun unless you're guaranteed a punch in the nose and a kick in the shin!

2. Godsmack, although they seem to have been influenced by Metallica

3. AFI

4. Bullet For My Valentine

5. Linkin Park

6. Ramones (Yeah, they're technically not heavy metal but they nevertheless, they still rock!)

7. Nirvana

Most of these can be classifed as "Punk" or plain old "Rock n' Roll" but I could not resist posting on this awesome discussion.

No black or death metal huh?

Even though I saw Arch Enemy (melodic death metal), Cradle of Filth (old stuff is VERY black metal) and Brutal Truth (grindcore, death metal's hyperactive cousin) listed, okay, let's see what I can do with these restrictions.

Strapping Young Lad - Extreme industrial insanity

Opeth - Yes, there's some death metal in there, but it is SO much more than that.  This is just music, no genres can contain it.

Moonspell - If Count Dracula were to make a metal band, this would be it.  Savage, elegant, a bit romantic, the darkness caresses you.

Stream of Passion - Female fronted melodic metal featuring the vocals of Marcela Bovio, hands down the most beautiful voice I've ever heard.  And yes, I've heard a lot of beautiful lady voices, she's still my pick, so there!

Nightwish - Finland's biggest band!  Fantasy fueled operatic metal.  I miss Tarja, but they're an awesome band.

Dethklok - Okay, I cheated and added a death metal band, but how can you not include a band that's the 11th biggest world economy on the list??
