Re: [Classic_Rock_Forever] Top 5 Metal bands and Top 5 Rock bands


That's an unfair comment....Deep Purple and Led Zep were never considered Metal in their day because to start with Metal never existed......they were always a Rock Band, maybe even classed as Heavy Rock, and in the case of Zep and a few of their tracks even Prog Rock. Metal bands came on the scene soon though......categorizing was never a science!

I consider Metal anything that is played on the Boneyard on Sirius radio.  :)

I have always had a problem with labelling bands. Is Led Zeppelin, metal or rock ? Have seen good arguments for both.

Interesting how labels have changed through the years. Back in the day we all considered Deep Purple and the like to be Metal bands. Now i think of them more as a hard rock band, compared to the metal that followed. Makes no difference though, they are a tremendous band whatever label they get - and i will be seeing them for the first time next month.
I will make similar lists but they will have more to do with era than genre. These would likely change if I made the lists again tomorrow.
Megadeth (I will also see next month along with Motorhead)
Rock (hard and otherwise):
Uriah Heep
Jethro Tull
Alice Cooper (the band)
Bachman-Turner Overdrive
Deep Purple
