No Iron Maiden?
Jan 12th, 2010 at 15:18 GMT
Never knew Pink Floyd was a metal band.
Jan 12th, 2010 at 15:30 GMT
i agree how can there be no Iron Maiden
Jan 12th, 2010 at 15:52 GMT
ummm.....what about ACDC, Guns N Roses, Nirvana, Iron Maiden, KISS, Deep Purple, Def Leppard, or Bon Jovi??? besides, i didnt see a source
Jan 12th, 2010 at 16:18 GMT
Alright, Iron Maiden was needed. Hatebreed is not metal, they are hardcore. Killswitch Engage is more emo than metal. Pink Floyd? Enya? Who the hell wrote this?! Where is Dio?! @fanofrocknroll Bon Jovi?! what the hell is wrong with you? Guns'n'Roses, Nirvana, KISS Deep Purple, Def Leppard should NOT be on this list those are all rock or in the case of Nirvana grunge. This quiz sucks!
Jan 12th, 2010 at 17:21 GMT
wtf is this based on? Priest but no Maiden? Metallica but no Megadeth? Nevermind all the strange choices for other bands
Jan 12th, 2010 at 21:02 GMT
Megadeth is there, but was spelled wrong.. unless theres another band name Megadeath.. i typed iron maiden and acdc 1 and 2 and after none of them come I realized this quiz sucks.
Jan 14th, 2010 at 14:49 GMT
It's my quiz, and I made the following changes. I added Iron Maiden, and you're right, I don't know how I forgot it in the first place. Sorry. Enya was as joke, I got rid of it, and Pink Floyd was just there because it's freaking awesome, and shouldn't be ignored. I got rid of it anyways. Killswitch Ebgage is NOT emo, it's great, and Hatebreed is sometimes metal. Yes, I spelled Megadeth wrong I was in a hurry, and Nirvana is not metla. I left out some 80s crap. Bon Jovie isn't metal either.

Worst. Quiz. Ever!
Jan 26th, 2010 at 16:20 GMT
Most things have been changed but it should either be alphabetical or the first five should be in the order; Iron Maiden, Metallica, Megadeth, Black Sabbath, Dio. And I agree: "Worst ('Metal') quiz ever. Do my Iron Maiden songs quiz instead.
Jan 27th, 2010 at 20:00 GMT
Wow. Horrendous quiz.
Dec 13th, 2010 at 23:02 GMT
Pretty sure you're missing Led Zeppelin.
Mar 17th, 2011 at 03:23 GMT
Seriously!!! MegaDEATH?!?!? Someone took their stupid pill.
May 15th, 2011 at 16:13 GMT
pretty good bands.YOU HAVE MURDERDOLLS!!!!! i love murderdolls! no dream theater, amon amarth, stuff like tthat.
Jun 18th, 2011 at 06:27 GMT
so there are obvious bands that should not be on here like dragonforce (too much controversy with labeling them metal) and alexisonfire (hardcore?) and you should also have hints toward the bands cause i'm pretty sure spineshank lair of the minotaur and consumed are not that popular enough to guess off the top of ones head
Aug 8th, 2011 at 20:26 GMT
Sep 17th, 2011 at 12:13 GMT
you have some bands that deserve to be labeled as metal, some that don't and some glaring omissions like anthrax, testament and kreator. Props for having bands like Meshuggah, death and dimmur borgir though.
Mar 15th, 2012 at 10:08 GMT
Why aren't Megadeth and Metallica at the top? They are the best out there... That's my opinion anyway m/
May 13th, 2013 at 06:10 GMT
Quiz fails by merit of total exclusion of Dio and Anthrax. Pentagram should have been on here too. All three are better than Slipknot or Killswitch Engage by a longshot. I can at least give you kudos for leaving off some of the more unfortunate femmy 80s glam bands but for the most part this is a poor and pretty random compilation.
May 17th, 2013 at 00:38 GMT
Even with changes this quiz still needs loads of work. With no hints given I'm down to random guessing. I mean, there's only like tens of thousands of metal bands out there, and you're asking me to guess which of these are your 44 favourites? And then it turns out only half the bands on here are actually metalbands! And who tf are Prism Theory?
