I'd switch 4 and 5

I'd put LoC above Arise and NMT just after LoC

Just listened to Dragonaut. It's an epic song but I don't really see how would it score in popularity nor influence because it is Black Sabbath type of a song and I personally don't know many people who would know this song. I'd move it right to the bottom

Looks fine, I'd just maybe put Dunkelheit instead of Jesu Dod (the impact is same and Dunkelheit is more popular)

Why Road to Hell? It is great song but what about Omega? or Accident of Birth? They seem (at least) to me as better songs

the rest seems pretty fine for me but in the '98 list I'd put Sacrament of Wilderness instead (since DDD chose it as the only song from Oceanborn for top 10 Nightwish songs)

Sleep has massive amounts of influence in stoner metal. And I think more people would know that song more than Pure Holocaust by virtue of the fact that less people know black metal in general. Plus Dragonaut is more popular than you think.

You're the one that had Jesu Dod rank higher. :lol:

Last I checked Road To Hell was the big hit off Accident Of Birth. I could be wrong.

A couple of other suggestions:

1989
1. Inner Self- Sepultura
2. Chapel of Ghouls - Morbid Angel
3. Elimination - Overkill
4. Slowly We Rot - Obituary
4. Kickstart My Heart- Motley Crue

1990
1. Holy Wars... The Punishment Due - Megadeth
2. Painkiller - Judas Priest
3. Seasons In The Abyss- Slayer
4. Cemetary Gates - Pantera
5. Left Hand Path- Entombed

I'd put Dance of Death instead of Rainmaker because 1. I don't see any impact from a 2003 maiden song 2. Dance of Death is more popular than Rainmaker (since people voted Dance of Death as 4th best IM song on thetoptens.com)

Paschendale is a more popular epic than DoD. To the point where people actually got pissed that it got replaced by DoD on the....2009 tour (the one where they did a 95% reunion stuff setlist)?
