Pretty much the ultimate heavy metal coffee table book. Get some like-minded metal militia over to your house with a couple frosty beers, crack open the book on a random page and let the debates begin. Agree or disagree, Popoff's way with words and encyclopaedic knowledge of all things heavy make every song review insightful and informative. Bet you will know twice as much about Budgie as you currently do after reading this book.

A good list, very inclusive - doesn't write off the 70s hard rock stuff that most metalheads these days don't consider "metal". Not much newer stuff, and heavy on the classic bands, but as good a list as any.

Main complaint would be that the author's own bias is on full display in the write-ups, and the hatred of Maiden especially gets tiresome...

I dont know why I even bothered. I could instead talked to a random averenge metalhead at a bar and ask which his "top 500 heavy metal songs of all time" would be, and Im sure that person would have picked a better list then this clique.
