Not a bad choice better then what most magazines pick

e.g Spin said Interpol which is like no just no.

Finally, a music magazine with sense. My opinion is obviously biased because Pantera are my favourite band, but this is excellent.

What a mad choice. Pantera have their moments, but you can cut everything they've done down to about an hour of real quality.

Revolver sucks, they're just doing it so they won't lose the true metal fans while they make article after article about Slipknot, Norma Jean, and Cradle of Filth.

Best band ever? I respect them and all, I'm not a metal fan though, but cmon! i think its a pretty crazy choice.
#12
I don't see why people are angry at the magazine for printing this. It's a poll, thus was voted on by the public. Now, of course some people are going to disagree because, as always, it's a subjective issue, but the magazine is hardly at fault.

ESPECIALLY EW considering Zakk Wylde was voted the hottest dude, what the fuck?


And also,

2 of Slayer's players got "best guitarist" and their drummer got "best drummer", yet they somehow weren't the best band?

Good band? Yes. Best band in the world? GTFO.
According to BS statistics, 92% of teens have moved on to rap. If you're among the 8% who doesn't consider rap to be real music, donate your brains, as you clearly aren't using them.
#23
I'm glad that the people voted someone that had some impact and relevance in the metal world instead of just picking Slipknot, whom I like, or Aiden, who were on the cover once , but let's face it, those bands haven't had a lot of time to be relevant in the history of music, so Pantera is a pretty decent choice.

Korn?? WTF??

I don't really see what revolver are trying to achieve with this.

The whole idea of a magazine poll deciding what is the best band ever is just ridiculous, they could do the poll 20 times over and i wouldn't be suprised if they got a different best band ever each time.

I like Pantera, but i don't think they're the best band ever, if i had to give a best band ever, i'd say the beatles purely because of the incredible popularity they recieve.

As much as I like Pantera, there are many better bands out there.

The heavy rockers beat Metallica and Korn to land the title in music publication Revolver. Slayer and Black Sabbath also made the top five list.

Meanwhile, Slayer's Kerry King and Jeff Hanneman shared the Best Guitarist honor and band member Dave Lombardo claimed the Best Drummer award.

Meanwhile, in the accompanying 2006 Reader's Poll, Tool was named Band of The Year, Korn claimed Best Live Band and Stone Sour and Slipknot frontman Corey Taylor was honored with the Best Vocalist award.

Meanwhile, Lacuna Coil star Cristina Scabbia and Zakk Wylde claimed the Hottest Chick and Hottest Dude in Metal awards
.

Yep, this list blows just as much as the other ones.

I honestly don't know why people post threads about these things, it seems we get hundreds of threads a week named 'Top 100 bands..' or 'Top 100 guitarists', who cares what these magazines think? Just because its printed doesn't make it true.

Edit: Pantera ftw!

Most of the magazines audience are tools who think Linkin Park and Korn are "teh shredz0r!"

That's like polling 10 people, and relating it to the entire population of earth. 5 people like Korn in the poll, so that must mean 3 billion people like them.

Fuck I hate magazine polls!

So, to sum up the thread: I know it's opinion, but this opinion is wrong.

+1, Dime wasn't the best.

Anselmo, however, has the best voice ever.

While I do like Pantera to an extent, they certainly arent the best band ever.
