    Pearlman used it to describe a category of music. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sandy_Pearlman

    I dunno. Were they heavy metal or acid rock? I always thought they were acid

    GNR made #1 on VH1's Top 100 greatest hard rock songs.

    I was surprised even though I thought they should have been on the list that started this thread. I expected AC/DC to be at #1 with Back in Black but they were #2. GNR was #1 with Welcome to the Jungle. I don't agree. They should have flipped the top two. Good show though.

    1. Guns and Roses

    This band gave rock a much needed attitude injection and a re-introduction into the main stream. Definately an important band, but not #1. (Unfortunately, this spawned a whole slew of crappy knockoffs that should all ben destroyed)

    2.Metallica
    A good band. Definately on the list, but not this high. They were largely a cult band until the commercial album sold out to MTV.

    3.AC/DC
    Solid Rockers that deserve a slot in the list.

    4.Motley Crue
    Solid Rockers that deserve a slot in the list.

    5.Def Leppard
    Haircut band.(see comments under G-N-R)

    6.Poison
    Haircut band.(see comments under G-N-R)

    7.Warrant
    Haircut band.(see comments under G-N-R)

    8.Whitesnake
    Haircut band.(see comments under G-N-R)

    9.Van Halen w/ David Lee Ross
    Solid Rockers that deserve a slot in the list.

    10.Queensryche
    Haircut band.(see comments under G-N-R)

    While there are solid bands on this list, metal is a different kind of animal.

    Where is Motorhead? Remember, Lemmy IS god! Excluding Led Zeppelin is just plain wrong.

    Slayer, Megadeth, Iron Maiden, Judas Priest?

    But the absolute, number one, metal band of all times has to be BLACK SABBATH!

    There is no other.

    It's hard enough to rank the bands let alone the songs. I didn't see this show so I'm not sure what the criteria was. I'll tell you that from a personal perspective when it comes to GNR I've always been a bigger fan of Sweet Child of Mine than Welcome to the Jungle.

    G N' R.....Paradise City should have been number one video. Pure rock and attitude in that video.....a classic.

    Sepultura should have been on there, but I guess Poison beat them out. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7Y-DibwjEn0

    Qiet Riot was a 2 hit wonder. They were for sure high energy heavy metal but not one of the greatest.

    AC/DC is a great rocking band but one can only listen to them for so long and all the songs begin to sound the same. Most of them have the exact beat.

    Queensryche......Heavy Metal Opera music is all I can say. I hate opera and his voice drives me nuts.
