About This Quiz

You are not the kind of person who can live your life according to a pop song! No, you need a gritty, loud, heavy metal anthem to sum you up. You need a song that reaches deep down inside you and speaks from your soul! You need a riff that drives the point home and gets your horns flying above your head.

Reaching all the way back to its roots in the ‘60s, many believe that heavy metal began with the likes of Black Sabbath. Though some would disagree and point to ‘70s bands like Led Zeppelin, no one can dispute that Iron Maiden and Judas Priest gave major rise to the genre. More modern bands like Disturbed and Halestorm are keeping the metal tradition alive to this day!

As you go through this quiz, you’re going to want to crank it up to 11! Whether or not you air guitar your way through is completely up to you. We highly recommend wearing some black eyeliner or some leather pants to get in the mood because we want you to know which heavy metal song is the theme song of your life. Go ahead and dive into this quiz to find out!
