This is the Periodic Table of Metal…Heavy Metal. It is glorious. Learn it, know it, live it.
I would also have accepted (pun inteded) Accept for the ‘Ac’ element. “Metal Heart” was a tremendous metal album, and who can forget the killer anthem, “Balls to the Wall”?
But Rush? Totally NOT METAL. Neither is Marilyn Manson, nor Van Halen or Def Leppard.
However, props are also due for the inclusion of Manowar. Saw them in the mid-80′s, and my ears are still ringing. And Saxon is one of the more underrated metal bands of all-time.
