Each week fans tune in to That Metal Show to see Eddie, Jim and Don weigh-in and argue about such important subjects as The Top 5 Jason Newstead Metallica Albums or The Top 5 Best Screams In A Song on the TMS Top 5. This season we’re moving the debate online and letting you, the fans, make your voices heard in our weekly TMS Top 5 polls.

Saturday on That Metal Show, the boys debated who were the most underrated guitarists in hard rock and heavy metal history. Special musical guest Richie Kotzen, who’s played with everyone from Poison to Mr. Big, came out on top but the full list of players is a who’s who of unrecognized or under-appreciated shredders from around the hard rock globe.

Peep the final list along with Eddie, Jim and Don’s selections and then cast your votes below and let us know where you think these guitarists rate. You can vote as many times for as many different guitarists as you like and don’t forget to check back every week for more TMS Top 5 countdowns and watch That Metal Show on VH1 Classic every Saturday night at 11/10C!
