VIDEO: Top “Heavy Metal” Hit of Every Year 1968-2017

Distorted: “In this video I mentioned the #1 biggest METAL hits of each year of 1968 to 2017. From this video you will get known about the songs which have dominated over all metal track released in a specific year. I didn’t make the list based on personal opinion. The list is made after researching on music charts, award and nomination choices and many other tabloids and magazines. So consideration of the critics receptions and accolades of the songs made these songs listed. The list is not only created on popularity basis . That’s why some popular song will be seemed missing and some unusual song will seem invaded. Though multiple track became successful in some year but only one track is picked for a year. On contrary some year has no metal hit. So in all the way most appropriate track has been selected in compare.”

Come for the Iron Maiden, stay for the……….Beatles……..Queen? Wait a minute, what the fawk is going on???  Homeboy says this isn’t his opinion but researched based on charts, awards, and all that….
