    Wow no Tesla? Guess they're not metal enough. Nice to see Great White, UFO, MSG and some Scorps tho. Thanks for the clue!

    Either that, or they're with a label that Rhino couldn't get permission from.

    Last I heard they were with Sanctuary but we all know what happened with that. Not sure what label they're with now.

    Oh well. It's kewl that they compiled all of this and finally acknowledge the metal.

    Bang your head!

    Sorry, I watched Footloose recently.

    Poison has no business being on there. I think Crue should be, but thats just me speaking as a Crue fan.

    I still feel everyone would agree that Poison should not be on a set that kicks this much ass.

    Living Colour's got me scratching my head. COP is a great song, but I would hardly consider it metal.

    They woulda been booed off the stage at Rocklahoma under a barrage of water bottles and middle fingers.

    Some nuggets there in that Box....

    But it's mostly corporate radio stuff, and certainly not the heaviest or netalist songs by a l-o-n-g shot for many fo these bands.....

    Cat Scratch Fever --- on a Mteal collection ?? That's r-e-a-l stretch !!

    Alice Cooper -- Mteal... Okay--- try Halo of Flies you scum-sucking PIGS !!!!

    Don't know that Mteal Church song.... but I'd venture to say that Gods of Wrath wipes it's ass...

    ehhh anthrax and slayer were glam bands????

    There are actually a few true metal bands in that list. Good set overall.

    They're not metal in the strickest sense, but for their time I would consider them as such - they were important to the metal sound. I don't have a problem with them being on a "metal" compilation album - there's definitely lamer stuff on there.

    If eddie were down and out on a sidewalk playing guitar I'd be next to him with a bottle and a blanky braving the cold. I would be sucking my thumb happily making chupa chupa noises in sync with the petroglyphic sounds that came from the mighty finger tips of Edward Van Halen.
