Just curious about reading your opinions about it.

As in Dionysus v. Apollo, perhaps?
Maybe Twyla Tharp's In The Upper Room, with her Stompers and Bomb Squad (ballet), has something to tell us here?.

And then there is my personal attraction for the Law of Opposites...but that's another story.

I especially like Apocalyptica's renditions of some heavy-metal numbers and have used their versions rather often. (but I work with youths and not for "real" companies)
I am also pretty sure that the use of heavy metal (and other perhaps not so "typical" ballet music) has been and being done in some smaller theatres of which we usually do not hear much.
There is just so much music out there and a good amount of it is almost begging to made into a ballet - in some form. ;)
I think it is great to have such a huge base to choose from.

There were a few slow, quiet-ish songs that might make a short work, but too many together would be monotonous.

"Enter Sandman" - "SB"
Any of the nightmarish ballets - e.g., "Nutcracker" -- perfect for loud, clanging drumbeats and guitars
