Nirvana was grunge... I mean, they were amazing, absolutely amazing, but... yeah.
Hm, I'd have to say my top five bands are Trivium, Judas Priest, Black Sabbath, Kamelot, and Slayer. I don't really know which bands I listen to are or aren't metal, since I've seen some mentioned on here that I definitely wouldn't consider metal but are amazing anyway. (Dropkick Murphy's, Mr. Bungle, etc.)
But yeah, you guys have great taste in music. (:
Great to meet ya. Here're my current top 10 bands:
1) Devil Driver
2) Shadows Fall
4) In Flames
5) Arch Enemy
6) Lamb of God
7) Skindred- I'm not sure if these guys are actually considered "metal," but I like'em anyway.
9) Machine Head
