James Hetfield vs. Al Jourgensen – President of Heavy Metal Election, Round 1

Metallica frontman James Hetfield is arguably the President of the ‘Big 4′ of thrash, but does he deserve to be the President of Heavy Metal? Hetfield has some pretty incredible statistics on his side, having sold over 100 million albums worldwide in the 30-plus years he’s stood center-stage with Metallica.

For those of you who crave a little more chaos in your candidate for the President of Heavy Metal, eccentric Ministry frontman Al Jourgensen has entered the race. The industrial-metal pioneer may have nearly killed himself from years of heavy drug use that would have long put Keith Richards in the grave, but there are no rules against running on a platform covered in blood and puke.

James Hetfield or Al Jourgensen? Cast your vote for the President of Heavy Metal in the poll below! Voting for this round ends on Tuesday, Oct. 23 at 10am ET. Fans can vote once per hour, so keep coming back to make sure that your favorite metal musician wins!

Next: Scott Ian vs. Lemmy Kilmister
