I've taken up the offer to help mod this thread, so...

Stats so far rule this outcome...

Led Zeppelin-6
Deep Purple-3
Pink Floyd-2
Alice Cooper-1

Led Zeppelin is in the lead! Will Deep Purple catch up? =)

Oh! I forgot to vote myself... and since I usually cheer for the (sort of) underdog: Deep Purple

Making the stats:

Led Zeppelin-6
Deep Purple-4
Pink Floyd-2
Alice Cooper-1

Reasoning... Led Zeppelin is indeed the better band in this group, but somehow Deep Purple has more 'Rock' in their songs. With this I am referring to the heavier guitar rifs used in their songs as to where Led Zeppelin has more mellow guitar play.

But people... Metal was at first a very mellow genre that evolved through time to a much heavier music, so don't put down other bands that are (at least seem to be) looking like bands not to be posted in this thread... ;)

Well, lets continue our competition! As I said before, when a band reaches 5 points, the group competition is over. The results:

Led Zeppelin-6-passed to the knockout stage
Deep Purple-4-Passed to the knockout stage
Pink Floyd-2-ELIMINATED
Alice Cooper-1-ELIMINATED

Now, lets vote in group B, they are the BIG 4 OF HEAVY METAL!

Anthrax-0
Megadeth-0
Metallica-0
Slayer-0

Note how the title doesn't have the word Heavy in it.

As for my vote, Metallica hands down.
