METALLICA Dominates Rolling Stone’s ‘Greatest Heavy Metal Albums Of All Time’ Readers’ Poll

Four of METALLICA‘s classic LPs were voted among the “The Greatest Heavy Metal Albums Of All Time” by the online readers of Rolling Stone magazine.

In announcing the results of the poll — which was launched last Friday — the editors of Rolling Stone wrote, “Metal fans are a very passionate bunch. They’re also very opinionated, so when we asked them to vote for their favorite metal albums we expected a huge response. We also expected a big debate about the very definition of ‘heavy metal.’ Some metal fans say that groups like LED ZEPPELIN and GUNS N’ ROSES are metal. Others think that’s completely insane. We aren’t here to settle these debates. We’re merely here to count the votes.”

“The Greatest Heavy Metal Albums Of All Time,” according to the online readers of Rolling Stone magazine:

01. “Master Of Puppets” – METALLICA
02. “Paranoid” – BLACK SABBATH
03. “Black Sabbath” – BLACK SABBATH
04. “The Number Of The Beast” – IRON MAIDEN
05. “…And Justice For All” – METALLICA
06. “Reign In Blood” – SLAYER
07. “Appetite For Destruction” – GUNS N’ ROSES
