Jim Schwartz: It's better than the alternative — meekest, least aggressive, softest team in the NFL.

I like 50 greatest Metal songs. Heavy is alright. Kinda interesting. I haven't really seen any others.
#5
i watch some of them, mostly for the humorous commentary by everyone. for the most part though, they only show shitty hair metal bands. they rarely ever talk about the real metal that was around in the era of hair metal.
#7
I hate on Heavy: The History Of Metal, when they finally get up to the 90's, they only mention nu-metal bands like Slipknot and Korn. They consider nu-metal the future of metal. They never mention bands like Death, Napalm Death, or Carcass, and never get to todays metal.

I mainly like the first two of them when they talk about sabbath, zepplin,kiss,judas priest,iron maiden,van halen.

Most of them suck. Headbanger's Ball is a crime against humanity, and '100 Greatest Metal Moments' is littered with mostly 'Non-Metal Moments.'

They did a good job with 'Behind the Music: Pantera,' though.

On the Least Metal Moments thing they were talking about the band Europe being from Sweden and saying how un-metal Sweden is. I guess those hair band retards have never heard of a little thing called the Gothenburg scene. I like the Pantera BTM though.

I didnt like BTM Pantera because after the first like 15 minutes it became like "Look how Phil ****ed everything up for Pantera and is solely responsible for Dimes death. Hes a total asshole." It may actually be true but I find Phil to be a very thoughtful, sincere and honest person. But again I could be wrong.

Every single one I've ever seen fails to represent true metal. Almost every single one goes on about Led Zeppelin, KISS, and a bunch of other non-metal bands, a bit about Black Sabbath, then about hair metal and new metal, and sometimes a mention of Metallica. All of the pop culture magazines (Rolling Stone etc) always fail to make any decent list or overview of metal.

That metal documentary movie that came out shortly ago was the only one that I find to be worth anything, and even it had it's flaws.

If I see Guns and Roses mentioned on another Top metal whatever Im going to blow my ****ing brains out. I didnt mind Heavy. I thought it was a tad bit interesting seeing how things got started and what not. The Pantera BTM was really well done IMO. Not what I was exspecting from VH1.

I lol when I watch VH1 metal specials ,they only mention really popular bands ,the only guy that they interview who seems to know what metal now days is ,is strangly the vocalist of Twisted Sister. Despite the fact that I do not like TS ,their vocalist is one of the few people I respect from Hair Metal, he seems like a really intelegent guy despite the crappy and cheeze music he writes.

I kinda liked Heavy, it showed a couple of different sides to the whole thing (the whole part with Warrant and 'Cherry Pie', I thought was great). Although they hardly touched anything but the Glam scene, like they always do, and that sucks.

40 Least Metal Moments made me want to slash their ball-sack with a rusty chainsaw...

I did have a laugh when they started naming the metal sub genres, even if it was crap and didn't show the true metal bands.

I watched Pantera BTM was very good but mega sad when you saw that nathan gale **** pointing the gun at dimebag.
#24
I was waiting for someone to start a thread about this, I only got satellite TV a few months back (Australian equivalent to a Red Neck ) and I watched Head Banger's Ball with a little bit of expectation, I know bad idea.

And then they had that special on Vh1 on 6th of the 6th 06 (ooooo 666), and I just let it slide that they have little idea what they are on about and just enjoyed the closest thing to Metal on TV I have seen so far (not very close though ).

But the other day was the last straw, really with that Least Metal Moments ........ yeah "And now the number one Least .. Metal ... Moment .... This f*cking show (applause* ooooh raaahhh woo hoo*)", god what a joke that was, I couldn't watch the whole thing it was that annoying. Especially the ignorance of it, it was like they were being Metal elitists, except it wasn't Metal. (regarding the fact they say using any sort of orchestra / orchestral instruments was "un-Metal", I mean come on).

*end rant
#25
Pantera behind the music was pretty good. And that other show Metal Militia is ok and better than headbangers ball.
#26
IMO i think that Vh1 classic is better just cause they have metal mania but they should show it everyday.

I pretty much agree with everything you guys said. Also I don't agree that stuff like pink floyd and Jimi Hendrix (although good) are more metal than Iron Maiden and Judas Preist. I know they influenced metal guitarists and such but that doesn't make them heavier.

those bands were considered metal back then. the idea of metal has changed over time. most of the fans of those bands hate dont consider much of the metal today to be ACTUAL metal.

No, they were considered rock n' roll at the time. The word metal was barely used until the 80's. Regardless of what it was at the time, these shows are made today and show zero knowledge of metal.

And with all due respect, diehard fans of classic rock have little to no say on what is metal and what isn't.

They make fvcking Dee Snider look like a metal god, and call every other glam rock band from back in the 80's--metal.

Bunch of bull**** information from people who don't know what they're talking about including Ian from Anthrax.

Anyway, most of the shows that come out on Vh1 about metal are crap...

However they rarely, but do put out decent trivia about members of any random band they happen to be showcasing. Dio for example, Rob Halford, etc...

People here get too stuck up with the "True metal" vs "metal" type shit. Let's face it, putting on a history of "metal" special and talking about bands like Bathory isn't going to sell advertising space. You know what IS though? Bands people have HEARD of. Quit trying to act all hard and realize, there's no set definition of "metal", and in those days, it WAS a sub-genre of metal, like that shit or not. I'm sick and tired of motherfuckers trying to be metal elitists on this site, but instead just pissing and moaning about the most trivial of things. Fuck all you whiners.

I know what you mean, but documentaries are there to inform people, to let them know that bands like Bathory existed, that there was a black metal scene in Norway (which could also get some ratings, since it involved high controversy), and many other things which all of you are complaining about the absence of.

The point being the the mass majority of the music listening public (VH1's target audience) could give two shits about Quorthon recording Hammerheart in his garage. They just want to hear the history of things they care about, which, unfortunately falls closer to bands like Warrant than it does to Emperor.

If you have to watch something on TV about metal, find "Metal: A Headbanger's Journey" - they did a good job, not just about metal but as a Documentary

I mean, even DVDuesday gave it a "buy", nothing to do with metal, just the quality - they did a huge part on Black Metal, I know that

#37
I agree with Spynal, cause most of VH1's audience is in America they will show metal bands that are popular in America which is mostly hair, classic, and mainstream thrash metal. Maybe if VH1 was a scandinavian based tv station they would be doing metal shows about black metal and stuff, but its not.
#38
Seriously who which one of you would love to hear about Bathory, Death, Kreator ,Sepultura etc on VH1 ??? They would fuck it up and no one will be happy. I mean seriously, I would not want to hear VH1 talking about a serious metal band ,after all they did try to claim that Bon Jovi were metal in one documentary ,who knows what garbage would be said about the likes of Emperor. Or what sort of commercial they would make for metal by talking about Varg

The only problem there would be in VH1 talking about metal bands such as Emperor, Bathory, Carcass, is the resulting image that the public would have about metal. That is, an elevated sense of almost "fear" and misunderstanding. Whether or not that's a good thing, isn't known...
