Bands I’m NOT Currently Looking For
Although I personally love these bands I do not consider them heavy metal. If you do I’m sorry but I have to draw the line somewhere. I consider these bands hard rock.
- AC/DC, Black Sabbath, & Led Zeppelin.
These lists probably will change as I find more genres or bands to add & decide on what’s allowed and what’s not.
