Jukebox:Metal is the heavy rock and metal specialist site which evolved from Jukebox. Jukebox itself was founded in 2002 by Vikki Roberts, who remained editor until December 2007. During that time the site grew on a consistent basis, significantly expanding in 2005 and going through a major relaunch in February 2007.

For much of this time Andy Lye had been the rock and metal editor for Jukebox, and he took over as editor in January 2008, launching Jukebox:Metal in the process. The main aim of this was to offer a more focused service to heavy metal music and to free up Jukebox to maintain its multi-genre appeal without too much of one specific genre taking over. Jukebox eventually closed in 2009.
