    Remember, there's a difference between metal and hard rock. Lots of people lump groups like Zeppelin and Halen into the heavy metal genre.

    The initial formation of Black Sabbath would be an appropriate inclusion, probably.

    VH1 did the 100 most metal moments special a few years ago. Go to VH1.com and look it up to get some ideas.

    I can agree with some, but some aren't even noteworthy:


    20 Van Halen awards roadies who guess the groupie of the night.

    19 Ozzy Osbourne, Bon Jovi, Metallica play Moscow Music Peace Festival.

    18 Def Leppard offer obscene backstage passes.

    17 W.A.S.P. guitarist gets hit by flying rump roast.

    16 Heavy Metal Parking Lot documentary premieres.

    15 Faster Pussycat drummer receives a special drug delivery.

    14 Kiss' Gene Simmons, sleeps with over 4,600 women and has the pics to prove it.

    13 Dokken guitar solo ignites actual volcanic eruption.

    12 Axl Rose attacks fan at Guns N' Roses concert and starts one of many riots.

    11 Poison revolutionize information maintenance systems with groupie database.

    10 Def Leppard drummer loses arm but keeps rocking.

    9 Led Zeppelin's mud shark incident.

    8 Groupies rate rockers sex romps and sizes online.

    7 Ozzy Osbourne and Nikki Sixx compete in gross-a-thon.

    6 Judas Priest 's leather-clad “Metal God” comes out of the closet.

    5 Spinal Tap premieres.

    4 Mötley Crüe release autobiography The Dirt.

    3 Dio popularizes "Devil's horns," the universal hand-signal for heavy metal.

    2 Black Sabbath's Tony Iommi sacrifices fingertips to create metal guitar sound.

    1 "Hear N' Aid" benefit album unites metal nation for the good of all.

    Heres a few just off the top of my head in no particular order.


    Black Sabbath releases debut album - A no brainer. It's what started it all.

    Dimebag murdered - The most tragic moment in metal history. A performer killed on stage. Robbing the world of one of the last true guitar heroes.

    Ozzy- Just existing is significant enough. The man who invented heavy metal also made it dangerous to listen to. He's almost simgle handedly responsible for parents thinking you might worship the devil commit suicide, bit the head off something and kill a puppy if you listen to heavy metal. Ozzy fuckin IS metal.

    Pantera debues at #1 on Billboard- Dime and Co. force the world to acknowledge that metal is not an obscure sub-culture, it's everywhere and nver going away. With virtually no radio or television support, the biggest, baddest and heaviest band on the planet at the the time, grabs the mainstream by the short hairs and makes them recognize the power and popularity of the genre.

    Rob Halford comes out of the closet- It was really just a footnote, no big deal...and THAT is what makes it significant! In a genre where the general fan is thought to be a testosterone fueled, bitter, dark, judgemental, Halford comes out as a gay man and nobody cares. Proving that for metal is about METAL not sex, drugs or hating your parents. Fans didn't care who he sleept with, he's still The Metal God.

    AC/DC releases Back in Black- Significant for 2 reasons.

    1. The loss of Bon Scott.

    2. AC/DC pulls off the impossible singer swap. Not only did they have HUGE shoes to fill with vocally on this album but it becomes one of the best selling album in music history! It's the musical equivilant of running a one minute mile.


    Hope this is a start for ya.

    Theres plenty more but this is just off the top of my head. I'll give you more as they come to me.

    Which Pantera debuted at #1? I assume it was either Far Beyond Driven or The Great Southern Trendkill...

    I disagree to a certain extent. If you're looking at moments in history that have influenced metal then you can't ignore the impact that Van Halen and Led Zep have had on many metal bands. How many metal guitarists have taken what EVH has done and developed it into their own sound? The answer is many, Dimebag is an excellent example of somebody EVH has influenced, and yet their sound is far removed from anything VH. So, for me, the recording of Eruption may have been one of the most important moments in metal history.

    A great many folks have trouble distinguishing the line between hard rock and heavy metal. While innovators in both genres have influenced groups from the other side of the coin, there's a distinct difference to most purists. Your average class B citizen usually assumes, given a 'speed guitarist', severely amplified distortion, and wham bam lyricism, that metal is metal. And sure, one might get technical enough to sub-categorize 'heavy metal' into different groupings, in which case Van Halen usually falls under pop metal.

    There really aren't very many 'Classic Hard Rock' bands that truly fit the bill. Perhaps a dozen, maybe two. Myself, I tend to believe Zeppelin, VH, The Who, Aerosmith, AC/DC, The Rolling Stones, and the latter day Beatles catalogue lead the pack in terms of the set tone of classic hard rock; to a slightly lesser extent, Cream, the Sex Pistols, the Clash, the Kinks. I'm sure I've forgotten several that are equally worthy of the admittedly limited title.

    Far Beyond Driven

    Junior has a great list. Although I'm not sure if AC/DC is "heavy Metal" they are more blues rock to me, but maybe I'm nitpicking.

    A few more may be:

    Quiet Riot's Metal Health goiung number one. they didn't debut at one, but they were one of (if not THE ) first metal band to go number one on billboard.

    Skid Row's Slave to the Grind Debuting at number one. First metal band to debut at one.

    Guns N Roses having the number one and two albums with Appetite and Lies, then doing it again with Illusion 1 & 2

    First things I thought of were;

    1. PMRC. I can remember being 14 or 15 at that time, and me and my buddies being freaked out that we weren't going to be able to buy our favorite records anymore!

    2. Metallica opening up for Ozzy behind the Master of Puppets album. Opened a huge door for the band that would go on to define metal for a lot of people.

    3. The release of Metallica's Black Album. Again, a band that is widely considered to be the metal band, and this album moved a ton of units across a very wide spectrum of music fans.

    4. Judas Priest having to go on trial in the US when two fans tried to kill themselves (one successful, the other hideously unsuccessful).

    I'm thinking Spinal Tap's gotta be in there somewhere.

    What about Vince Neil and the Hanoi Rocks dude?

    Didn't Jethro Tull win a Grammy for best heavy metal album or something like that?

    Ozzy bites a dead bird/bat

    I'd put the Vince Neil/W. Axl Rose feud, but I don't know that I consider either band, especially Guns 'N Roses, to be heavy metal.
