American heavy metal group Metallica voted most influential band
London: Metallica has been voted the best rock group of the last 30 years in a poll by British magazine Kerrang!.
The ‘All Nightmare Long’ group topped the poll by beating bands like My Chemical Romance, Slipknot, Green Day and Foo Fighters, reports contactmusic.com.
"It gives me a very warm and fuzzy feeling that Kerrang! Magazine have voted Metallica as the band that most changed their lives. I remember the first issue of the magazine in 1981. I had made a pilgrimage to England because I was obsessed with the new wave of British heavy metal. I travelled all over the country and that first issue accompanied me everywhere," said brand`s drummer Lars Ulrich.
American punk rock band Green Day was at second position, heavy metal band Iron Maiden came third, followed by Slipknot, My Chemical Romance, Linkin Park, Bullet for my Valentine, Blink 182, Ozzy Osbourne and Foo Fighters, who make it to the top ten.
