This might seem like a stupid topic, and with all respect it may well be nothing important, but im quite curious. Id just like to see what are the most common Band letters. This is only for Metal bands btw, so dont count other genres. With bands with words like The, or A, in front, they still count as the first letters.

The letters in the list are in order from my collection, im using it as a basis, i have 30 'D' bands and 12 'I' bands. i KNOW this is not accurate and will provide no fact, but it can determine the more popular letters, i understand for some they might not be in the list.

Most of my preferred bands start with the letter A. Because A stands for awesome.
But B stands for BADASS and that's why Black Sabbath starts with a B.

S seems to be the most common in my collection, somewhere in the order of 20 'metal' bands starting with S maybe more. E is second with 12, then D with 10, them M with 9.

Only counting stuff I own physically here. S was the predicted winner with Schaliach/Seventh Avenue/Slechtvalk/Sonata Arctica/Stratovarius/Stryper/Switchfoot, but the surprise winner turned out to be M with Mad Max/Mantric/Mastodon/Meat Loaf/Megadeth/Metallica/Mortification/Muse. But M is a boring letter. Pretty much everyone on the site's got an album by Metallica, Megadeth and Mastodon, and maybe even Muse and Meat Loaf too.

It's tied between S and B at 15 artists for me, followed closely by T with 14.

Insomnium
