I have to say, this album is not all that great.
Alot of the covers on here are listen-once grade music - well for me they are.
Some of the best covers here are:
Aiden - Die Die My Darling
Killswitch Engage - Holy Diver
Deftones - Simple Man (Purely because its totally different to the original in sound)
Atreyu - You Give Love A Bad Name (Gives a classic a new kick, with more attitude)
NOFX - Straight Edge

The worst ones on here are, in my opinion,
Avenged Sevenfold - Walk (No one should, in my mind, touch any of Dimebag's treasured work)
Bullet For My Valentine - Crazy Train (This song is still awesome to this day, and should never be covered...also the "ALL ABOARD!!" doesnt have the same impact as Ozzy's voice did.)
Arch Enemy - Symphony Of Destruction (Not a fan of Arch Enemy to be honest)

But this CD does have a novelty value to it, because alot of these are especially recorded for Kerrang's 25th birthday/anniversary. And for the £1 i brought it for, it was worth it.

Note on this release: There is apparently another album like this, with different tracks.
