With a solid place in history as becoming the first Metal band to crack the top five, Quiet Riot helped to usher in a new wave of Metal that showed that it could be a commercially successful entity. They helped to usher in a new era of Pop Metal which would run rough shot over the next decade. Although they helped to bring it in with their successful album, Metal Health, they never did come close to that level again and essentially imploded within the industry.

  • 354. The Sisters of Mercy
    Known primarily as a Goth band, The Sisters of Mercy combined dark imagery with an intriguing blend of Alternative Pop, Metal and Psychedelic influences.  A very polarizing band, their brooding fans identified with music on a very deep level.  Those who were not fans found them a self-aggrandizing group that was not as good as they thought they were.  Regardless…
