Yeah, this is it! The Metal Bands World Cup! We are in the year of the Soccer World Cup, so I thought of doing this. Itâs based in the cup organization rules, but kind of different:

Group stage: 4 metal bands are selected, each person have the power to give a point (vote) for one band, when a band reaches 5 points, the band election is over, and the top 2 bands of the group stay for the knockout stage. There will be playoffs if needed.

Knockout stage: Like in the famous battle of the bands thread, you are going to vote for one band, the band that reaches 5 points first is going to stay for itâs next game, or win the competition, if it the final.

Rules: 1-Give a good reason for why you chose that band
2-You can only vote once in a game
3-Donât complain if your band if loosing or lose
4-Community Rules and Guidelines apply too

Mods: People who will help me, not the community official mods, normal users who I invite to help.

I hope AG users like it!

I think I'll have to go with Motley Crue. Dio is legendary, but I can't listen to more than a few Dio songs in a row without getting a headache from the sheer epicness. Iced Earth really started sucking recently, and Nightwish can't beat the Crue.

Ronnie James Dio for being one of the most influential metal vocalists of all time.

Nigtwish.
Not the actual ones, the old formation.
I loved the singer's voice, even if I could understand a word every 15...

b]Motley Crue[/b]. Awesome band who rocks - and still rocks. The put on a show in concert, and they give the fans what they want. They took MTV to the fullest extent, using the media outlet for exposure and reaching out to fans they never would've found if they had to just rely on radio. One of the premeir bands of the 80's, I'll have to vote for Motley Crue.

Motley Crue, they are an amazing, classic metal band and their music shall never die! I would be surprised if anybody has never heard one of their songs.

I know anoose, but be honest... I could never think of a way to keep him out of this Metal competition, could I? After all... he IS the 'Godfather of Metal' and thought up the 'Devils' Horns Salute'! \\,,/_ _\\,,/

And when I would simply say 'DIO', I wasn't confident that everyone would know that it's Ronny James Dio...
