Heavy metal is not main stream in the UK so Maiden are lucky to get any hits never mind a number 1 which they got with "Bring your daughter to the slaughter."

Seems everyone forgot about the Rolling Stones too. I would put them up there as well.

If it makes you feel any better I like Iron Maiden better then Kiss. What a bunch of douchbags. They have a couple decent tunes but Jesus Christ are they ever gay.

AH! I was just to mention Judas Priest ...
This morning I played Guns'n'roses album 'lies,lies,lies' on the TT
Very nice classic rock songs ...and acoustic instruments put a nice intimistic view

Not sure if Led Zep ever had a hit.

They did sell many tons of albums though when album sales weren't really counted in the charts but they did not release any singles at all in the UK.

Singles and lame airplay don't define hits, we do. Teenaged girls are not huge Zeppelin fans.

Led Zeppelin was not Pop band, it was pure uncompromising Rock and Roll for the masses.

Speaking of all time record sales, anyone remember Pink Floyd? The highest selling album of all time worldwide was the Wall. They were not chart toppers either, although I'm sure they enjoyed a little time here and there.

You sure about that GloBug?

The best selling Pink Floyd album was Dark Side of the Moon.

The best selling album of all time was Michael Jackson's Thriller. Number 1 by far.

Well they did have a little ditty called Stairway to Heaven that was rated the number one rock song in history for about 15 years, over on this side of the pond.

Arguably the best Rock and Roll band in history. Not my cup of tea but hard to argue the point.
