Metallica voted ‘best rock group of last 3 decades’

Washington: Metallica has been named the best rock group of last three decades.

The ‘All Nightmare Long’ group topped the poll compiled by UK magazine Kerrang!, beating My Chemical Romance, Slipknot, Green Day and Foo Fighters.

“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,” Contactmusic quoted drummer Lars Ulrich as saying.

Lars also paid tribute to Iron Maiden, who came in at number three on the list, behind Green Day.

Kerrang! 30 Rocks! top 10:

1. Metallica
2. Green day
3. Iron Maiden
4. Slipknot
5. My Chemical Romance
6. Linkin Park
7. Bullet for my Valentine
8. Blink 182
9. Ozzy Osbourne
10. Foo Fighters
