Metallica

Metallica is an American Heavy metal band. They were formed in October 1981. With 57 million albums sold in the United States (RIAA Total Sales), and 40 million albums sold outside the US, the total number of album sales is approximately 100 million. The band has become one of the most commercially successful heavy metal acts in history, as well as the 18th biggest selling act in American music history. After building a following through its role in the development of modern heavy metal, especially thrash metal, (considered the leader of the "big four" of thrash metal, which includes Megadeth, Slayer, and Anthrax) in the mid-1980s, the band broadened its audience in the early 1990s. Accordingly, the band stood as the most commercially visible example of the metal genre for most of that decade.

The Smiths

The Smiths were a British rock group active from 1982 to 1987. The group was based on the songwriting partnership of Morrissey and Johnny Marr, and was notable in particular for two things: Morrissey's unusual, witty and controversial lyrics, and Marr's music, which helped return guitar-based music to popularity after it fell out of favour in the UK charts. The group released a total of four studio albums and several compilations in less than five years, as well as popular singles like "Panic," "Ask," and "How Soon Is Now?"

I'm voting for The Smiths. I know they have no chance to win and I like Metallica but I've listened to The Smiths 10x the amount I've listened to any Metallica.

The last three or four CDs have been crap, but still Metallica.

Master of Puppets + Black Album = plenty of hours spent listening ;-D

I've got a Smiths CD or two. And Morrissey's last solo CD was pretty good... haven't heard his latest yet, but I've heard good things.

That said, I'll go with Metallica. I don't even really like that kind of music, but they've got more songs that I dig. My friend burned me a lot of his Metallica CDs... don't tell Lars... I pressed the skip button through most of 'em... but those good tracks were pretty damn good.
