Don't give me that, add a couple more guitar solos and lengthen some of the songs and you have a NWOBHM classic.

Sort of. AC/DC and Van Halen aren't quite what you would call Metal bands but their albums manage to sneak their way onto top 100 metal lists more often than you'd think.

Actually, fuck it. I barely know what this is asking for and I'm not comfortable giving a list, but one album deserves to be mentioned here above all others:

So is this our favorite albums by almost metal bands or the most "metal" albums, even if they're not our favorite, by said bands?:confused:

Agreed on both counts. Propagandhi's metal influences started showing up on their earlier albums, too.

Borders on metal, almost certainly isn't metal, and is one of the most classic albums ever. :cool:

cool, cool. i know they get flak from metalheads because they're the typical "go-to" band for the non-musically cognizant (almost as much as the beatles), but almost all their music is definitely legit (not like the beatles)
