VH1 has this list with the "40 greatest metal songs".Not only is it really unoriginal but since when is kiss, quiet riot, scorpions, guns n roses etc metal? They had songs like rock you like a hurricane and paradise city on the list.

Those are good songs sure but since when is it metal, its júst good old hardrok and when they call music like that metal it makes u wonder if they have anything even similar to a brain. 90% of the songs on the list followed the same ´pattern, good rock hitsongs but they didnt have anything to do with metal, sure guys like acdc and kiss inspired alot of metalheads to write good and sucky metalsongs but they are NOT metal, its just good/bad hardrock whatever is ur fancy. I shouldnt be upset because since when has MTV, VH1 or rolling stones magazine been right about anything but i just cant help it. It makes me furious when the ignorant fools calls something metal when its hardrock. Metallica is metal im sure we all can agree about that.'

Iron maiden sure metal absolutely, Slayer ofcourse. Anthrax sure, judas priest? The majority of what they have done is hardrock not metal. Same with ACDC only they havent done any metal its just good bluesy hardrock. Gahh im furious, noone who can understand me?

They are Heavy Metal or Hair metal that list is not about actual real straight up Metal cos then it would be just dominated by Metallica and the Metal Gods Maiden


and Its MTV/VH1 what the hell do you expect Scandenavian death metal

I dont expect much since its mtv and vh1 but i do except them to categorize the list correctly. IF they would have called it a hardrock/metal list then fine, i wouldnt have agreed with what was on the list but sure atleast its hardrock and metal. Bands like van halen and faith no more isnt metal not even close to it.

Gun's n Roses and AC/DC could be considered metal. They came earlier, before stuff like slayer came along and started being /really/ obnoxious. They were like, the original metal, some even call Zeppelin metal...

Fender 52 RI Telecaster

Guns n roses werent really early at all, late eighties, both iron maiden hade been out there rockin since the beginning of the 90: s. Not to mention bands like death and morbid angel etc, slayer etc etc. But sure acdc but as i said im sure they are an inspiration to alot of metal bands but they arnt metal, some of their music isnt even hardrock its just gritty dirty bluesrock

Slayer had released 3 albums before guns n roses even released their first cd so no guns n roses wasnt earlier as u said. But sure if u think they are obnoxious its up to u cant argue about peoples taste in music
