Is Guitar Hero keeping the metal music relevant?

I've been asking some friends about how and when did they start listening to metal, and one of the most frequent responses was that they started at age of 10-15, played Guitar Hero and got hooked on stuff like Metallica, In Flames and Slipknot.

And then I think about it - Guitar Hero was part of my childhood, as well... I liked Monsters by Matchbook Romance most of all and I even started playing guitar to learn that song



So, what do you think, is Guitar Hero responsible for kids getting into metal and keeping the metal scene populated?
How and when did you start listening to metal?

Metal isn't relevant, but that's okay.

The thing with Metal, at least in Europe it never really went away. It was just lying dormant. Especially in mainland Europe with the 90's second wave of Black Metal and the Power Metal scene having a thing.

Never thought Guitar Hero was really relevant myself, but if it got kids into music, great.

Guitar hero was scrapped.

Metal lives through other means

you wanna know how relevant Guitar Hero is?

Gamestop has a rack of used PS2 games. 90% of them are Guitar Hero and other music games.

valid question

see most of us naturally listen to music via our ears

well, metalheads tend to listen to it through the ass

hence,

the purpose of the upright fingertips is to be inserted into others in order to listen to metal music as a group

in conclusion, guitar hero is no longer relevant

That's just an attempt to get PC users to make the switch to a Mac and wubz.

Rockband was better until i tried playing their awful cover version of Holiday in Combodia and everything was wrong.

especially the backwards bass line.

I've only played Guitar Hero a couple of times and that was only playing classic rock

I got myself into metal by listening to metal

Nobody even plays Guitar Hero anymore, people still listen to metal. 'nuff said.
