Top Artists Of All Time: Division 5-Metal

The voting continues for the Top artists Of All Time. Each Friday, station to station is showcasing the top artists of all time. The panel is nineteen friends and com-padres of music who pick their favorite 6 artists out of a division of 32. The top 8 artists receiving votes move on to a semifinal round-which looks like it will be slated in October. Out of 20 voters, 15 (75%) cast ballots for Division 5: Metal.

Led Zeppelin was the runaway winner collecting 72.5 points to take second place on the overall board (tiebreaker to R.E.M. for more votes received). From there, positions 2-5 jockeyed for position throughout the week of voting. Black Sabbath led the pack for second while Metallica AC/DC and Van Halen followed close behind. Newer metal got it's due as well with Rage Against The Machine and Tool finding their way in on multiple ballots. And call it a twist of fate (or Cain?). Since so many votes were given to the top 5 and no one got multiple support at the bottom (Iron Maiden and Ozzy received three votes but lower points on the ballots), Danzig's two first place votes helped him slide into the eighth place for a trip to the semi-finals. Of the 32 artists, 20 received votes this time around.

You can keep up with The Top Artists Of All Time (32 artists, 32 Genres) by clicking the tab at the top of the home page to see who's moving on to the semi-final round of 256.
