Metallica is known for pioneering the thrash metal sound, which is one of the the most popular sub genres within heavy metal [1]. This in turn has inspired a similar sound amongst countless other bands. They are continually cited as being among the biggest influences of almost every popular metal band, which means they are observed by each new cohort of metal heads who find something accessible in their back catalog.

Indeed Metallica has been popular for more than 30 years [2] and they are considered among the most popular metal band of all time. In fact some believe there will never be another metal band as big as Metallica for legitimate (logistical) reasons [3].

While popularity alone does not dictate which band is better, we can reasonably assume that being widely regarded as among the best by many is indicative of recognizable talent and prestige. Metallica ranks as #61 of Rolling Stone's best artists whereas Avenged Sevenfold is not recognized anywhere on the list [4]. Amongst metal fans, Metallica consistently ranks within the top 5 best bands whereas AS is almost always ranked lower. One popular metal site online ranks Metallica as the 4th best metal band, while Avenged Sevenfold doesn't even break the top twenty-five [5].

Metallica has a lot of fans. As of December 2012, they are the third-best-selling music artist since Nielsen SoundScan began tracking sales in 1991, selling a total of 54.26 million albums in the U.S. [6]. They have won critical acclaim with their first four albums, and in 2009 they were inducted into the Rock-and-Roll Hall of Fame [7].

"Metallica has released nine studio albums, four live albums, five extended plays, 26 music videos, and 37 singles. The band has won eight Grammy Awards and five of its albums have consecutively debuted at number one on the Billboard 200. The band's eponymous 1991 album has sold over 16 million copies in the United States, making it the best-selling album of the SoundScan era. Metallica ranks as one of the most commercially successful bands of all time, having sold over 110 million records worldwide" [8].

Creatively, the band is known for taking risks and inventing new sounds within the rock/metal genre. Their playing style includes fast tempos, complex guitar solos and overall aggressive musicianship which gives them a unique sound to be desired. Their consistency and longevity prove their talent and ability to evolve over time along with their audiences, including mainstream audiences in addition to metal fans. Avenged Sevenfold has not put out any music that has captured the attention or significance that Metallica has, nor are they intrinsically better musicians.
