Extreme Metal Xmas No.1 chart spot

Hi all;

Is it just me, or would it be nice to find that someone like Metallica, Pantera or Sepultura had made the Xmas No.1 spot on the charts. I mean, RATM had Killing in the Name at the top spot in 2009, so it could happen if people downloaded/streamed the song of choice enough times.

Please let me know what song you reckon should make the top spot. I was thinking something by Pantera, to remember Dimebag, as it is the 10th anniversary of his death in December this year.

RIP Dimebag!

Tom, I need you to listen to me very carefully. Close this thread. Look at the recommendation thread, and come back when you're ready.

Here's what happened.


NABEF9 made a joke, and said joke went over your head.






Now, do yourself a favor. Head over to the Rec Thread and read the first several posts of that thread. Then, start listening to the bands in those posts. It will blow the Metallica, Pantera, and Sepultura* out of your ass!

*Note: I don't dislike any of those bands, but there are much better bands. Many of them are listed in the Rec Thread.

No.

The chart is a historical reflection of popularity at a certain point in time. Manipulation serves no purpose. Who care's what's number one? It's no indicator of quality, just of sales.

People post shit like this every year on facebook and guess what, never happens.


Metal doesn't need some plebeian popularity contest in order to justify its existence. No one cares that you, or anyone else likes metal music. It's like some metal fans have this insatiable urge to point out to those who don't listen to metal that they exist in some weird attempt to battle their own insecurities. It's like the people who go on pop videos and tell people to listen to "real music liek slipknot and asking alexandriaaaa!!!!". Just stop already.

At least he makes it easy to spot/report him. All you have to do is go straight to a minute in, and see whether or not the vocals sound like an off-key, off-tempo, effects-laden try at being Jonathan Davis.
