If a band has no original members left, does it really matter? In the case of these 13 rock and metal bands, the answer is a resounding, "NO!"
Let's get this straight — this does not make the original members irrelevant. After all, they're the ones who established a musical direction for future members to run with.

For Sepultura, this stigma shouldn't even really apply since bassist Paulo Jr. has been in the band since 1984, the very year the Brazilian thrash unit was formed. He wasn't the original bassist, but that's just semantics. And besides, Andreas Kisser has been there since the second album as Sepultura gradually molded their sound into the style were regard as classic today.
