VH1 Top 10 Most Legendary Heavy Metal Club


Who Played There: Slayer, Gwar, Nile, Death, Sacred Reich, Saxon, Entombed, Agnostic Front, GG Allin

Why It Ruled: In keeping with its proud role as the Motor City, Detroit in large part manufactured American heavy metal’s earliest models in the form of Alice Cooper, the Stooges, the MC5, and Grand Funk Railroad.

From the hardcore-heavy and thrashtastic mid-80s until the alt-metal and grungfied sounds of 1994, Blondies supplied Detroit with an ideal heavy metal showroom: loud, nasty, built for speed, and able to withstand even the most insane impact.
