This is a list taken from a book by Martin Popoff. The ranking was made with polls all around the world and not by Popoff himself. Not all of the albums can be considered as metal. But bands like Queen or Jimi Hendrix for example were important for the evolution of Heavy Metal

The playlist is collected from MARTIN POPOFF's great book. The Top 500 heavy metal songs of all time is the end result of massive, WORLDWIDE POLL asking the metal minions to list their favourite heavy metal standards.

He lives in Toronto, Ontario. Could I have compiled a list of the 500 best Metal songs of all time? Probably not, as I've been trying to figure out what albums I'd have to have if I was ever stranded on an island. That's taken me 30 years and I barely have 10.

“Martin has the most thorough knowledge of heavy metal of anybody I’ve ever met.” — Dee Snider Jimi Hendrix, Black Sabbath, Deep Purple, KISS, Mötley Crüe … “Purple Haze,” “Paranoid,” “Smoke on the Water,” “Rock and Roll All Night,” “Shout at the Devil”… Who’s number one? What’s the greatest hard rockin’ single ever? The Top 500 Heavy Metal Songs Of All Time is the end result of a massive poll asking the metal minions to list their favourite hard rock or heavy metal songs from the late ’60s through to 2001. As 18,000 individual votes were tallied and entered into a database, Martin Popoff began interviewing the bands that made the final heavy grade, gathering their recollections of creating these classic tracks. Dozens of top rockers have been polled, and some of their lists occur throughout the book, along with shots of rare single covers (from 7", 12", and CD single sources) for the songs in question. Finally, a set of appendices looks at the data, revealing trends, surprises and endless grist for arguments amongst the metal masses. Containing hundreds of quotes from dozens of multi-platinum artists (from AC/DC to ZZ Top, Poison to Iron Maiden, Ozzy Osbourne to Judas Priest, Metallica to Megadeth) as well as many respected underground artists, The Top 500 Heavy Metal Songs of All Time is sure to create a firestorm of discussion throughout all facets of the media. “Excellent! It’s one of the very few guides that gets under the skin of the music and interprets what was in the mind of its creators.” — Bruce Dickinson

Popoff continues to entertain those of us out there who still care about heavy metal. Even though I am now in my 30's I still love to read about my favorite metal groups. This book contains the results of a massive poll with Martin's comments about each song as well as comments from the band members themselves. There are also several top ten lists from various musicians as well as several album covers. I must admit that I don't care for some of the bands that made the top of the list but that's to be expected. As long as many of my favorites (Accept, BOC, Savatage, Schenker) are represented, I'm satisifed. This book is definitely worth buying if you like various kinds of metal and you want to know what other metal heads think are the best metal songs ever.

This is a book I wanted after getting Top 500 Albums, and it is a complement book to 500 top albums with loads of information for metal or hard rock lover. Buy this book!

If there's one thing I know about myself, it's that I'm an impulse buyer. I'm also an old school metal head and a fan of Martin Popoffs' work. Although I tend to get a bit tongue tied when I'm mouthing the words as I'm reading, he writes with enthusiasm and honesty. Could I have compiled a list of the 500 best Metal songs of all time? Probably not, as I've been trying to figure out what albums I'd have to have if I was ever stranded on an island. That's taken me 30 years and I barely have 10.

Let the fan's vote. It's a democracy here. Although it is novel to give the hoi polloi a voice, I think it is commendable that Martin took it upon himself to undergo such a project. I bought the book soon after it was published for probably the same reason Martin underwent the exercise; that is to confirm his suspicions of predictability and enjoy the surprises that unfolded as the votes were tallied up. I for one love the premise. The book is full of anecdotes and information that any would like as a fan of Heavy Metal. For one with such passion for the music and a stated desire to educate and edify I cannot recommend this or many of Martin's other books too highly. If you are into heavy music this publication is one that should not be missed.

Martin Popoff returns with yet another comprehensive tome of metal bits, wisdom and knowledge that can be only be thought of as encyclopaedic. Like his previous metal books, Popoff's latest manifestation bases itself on three impressive characteristics: a) intelligence, b) readability, c) damn-near impossible to find insight and off-the-wall facts that even the most seasoned metallic purveyor will find interesting, unique and eye-opening. For this specific book project, Popoff asked the general public to list their top metal songs of all time (an exercise we all partook in as kids, no doubt). 4500 tunes later, The Top 500 Heavy Metal Songs Of All Time has the man not only describing inaudible intricacies I still can't figure out (witness why anyone would ever pick anything by AC/DC post Bon Scott), but he's delved into his own interview archive and compliments most song reviews with quotes from the band members themselves (Jake E. Lee discussing the solo in Ozzy's 'Bark At The Moon' is beyond cool). To top it off, Appendixes are included at the back of the book, and Martin P has compiled detailed sub-list upon sub-list of top songs, top albums, numbers of metal countries represented within the book and much more razzle dazzle to entertain you on any given day or night. Honestly, the man's a genius and if there was any justice in the world, he'd be writing for Rolling Stone or Spin (but he writes and edits for Brave Words & Bloody Knuckles, arguably a better rag than either of the aforementioned, so things kind of work out, no?). I'm impressed, yet again, with Popoff's work and the levels of comprehension, wit and foreclosure that the author has put forth. Another indelible shining mark on the metal community.
I would have given him 5 stars but i have some doubts about the way he made his "worldwide polls", I surely agree that Black Sabbath, Metallica, Iron maiden, Judas Priest AC/DC, are the most influential groups in making Metal anthems, I even consider myself an 80's metalist and trust me I'm a Hard Core Black Sabbath fan. But, and this is the part where i retire a star from my rating, if he dares to mix a lot of genres in his books, how could he almost exclude grunge? If it were only Heavy Metal, there would be no problem, but again he deals with hard rock, funk, Jimi Hendrix, Cannibal Corpse (Yikes) and grunge (this in a minor degree), Did really Martin asked as many as almost 18000 people in the world? If so, most of this people must be 30 something almost 40 years old people. The heavy load of the "votes" lie in the 80's era. I mean: Where the hell are the new anthems? Nirvana is more than only "Smells Like Teen Spirit". Where Are "Spoonman", "Crackerman" or "Them bones"?
Is really Celtic Frost above Pearl Jam, STP, Alice in Chains, etc?
Are Cannibal Corpse and The Beatles (even tied with one hit to their names) in but Pearl Jam out of it?
Martin: Try another poll and name the 500 new anthems. Or the 90s and beyond Best Hard Rock Albums.
I would recommend Martin Popoff (With a lot of respect for him, of course) to stop considering his books Heavy metal related. I think it's much better to tie them with Hard Rock.
In my opinion he could scare people who loves grunge, prog metal or simply Hard Rock. That last one is the real umbrella (as he claims in his books)that covers all this genres.
Any way is a great and very interesting effort with that charming Popoff style.
