We asked you to name the albums that transformed you into the metal monster you are today. And you told us! Following are the final results from 1999 - 2001:

Metallica proved to be invincible, keeping a strangehold on the Top Three positions with Iron Maiden holding tight at #4 with "Number of the Beast." Pantera put in some last minute muscle to push into the #5 position, with Guns'N'Roses at #6. Then guess who's back: Metallica, at #7 and #8 with Ozzy and his original band, the legendary Black Sabbath at #9. AC/DC's classic "Back In Black" rounds out the Top Ten.  With five of the Top Ten, Metallica holds exactly HALF of the Top Ten positions. Very impressive!
