Question 5th Essential Metal Band?

Most people would say these 4 are the essential metal bands:
Metallica
Iron Maiden
Judas Priest
Black Sabbath

but if it was the 5 essential metal bands instead of 4, who would be the 5th essential?

I would say Dio but what do you think.

Surely Slayer are more 'essential' than Judas f*cking Priest?

Its thanks to Judas Priest that we had the whole NWOBHM as they provided the crucial link between Black Sabbath and bands like Iron Maiden. The albums "Sad Wings of Destiny" and "Stained Class" are essential 70`s metal releases and "British Steel" another metal classic. They were also a huge influence on the whole of the thrash movement, and their thrashy 1990 album "Painkiller", was as good as any other thrash album out there. Rob Halford is without doubt one of the greatest metal singers ever and most singers are still measured against him.

To be honest, I can`t think of anybody that likes metal and doesn`t respect Judas Priest and everything they`ve done for the genre.

Oh, and I still don't care how influential Judas Priest were, they're awful.
