Metal Injection's Top 25 Stories Of 2023

From the harsh realities of the current economy to the Sleep Token fart, these are the big ones of 2023.


The top news stories of 2023 include everything from the serious threat artists face in the current economic climate to someone ripping an absolute screamer of a fart during a Sleep Token show. It's been a real mixed bag for sure. It's also worth noting that posts about someone in the rock and metal community dying have been excluded from this list, as not to rank the popularity of the deceased. That feels pretty shitty.
