METALLICA And VAN HALEN Are Among Most Powerful


Recommended Posts

METALLICA and VAN HALEN are the only heavy metal/hard rock bands to make the Forbes magazine's annual list of the 100 most powerful figures in the entertainment world. METALLICA ranked No. 23, thanks to earnings of $37.4 million and relentless touring throughout 2004. Catalog sales boosted the band's take, too, and a documentary ("Some Kind of Monster") about their adventures in counseling helped raised their profile with those who'd never deign to bang their heads. VAN HALEN, meanwhile, landed at No. 61, with an estimated revenue of 29.6 million, generated primarily from their first U.S. tour in years.

Forbes calculated its list by ranking the celebrities on both their salaries as well as the amount of media attention they garnered through TV and radio appearances, magazine covers, newspaper mentions, and hits on the web over the past 12 months.
