On another forum, a guy posted this, knowing im a full on metalhead:



Like metal is any better.

1. Record 3 seconds of shredding.
2. Loop
3. \m/ METAL \m/

/run



Then a jazz guy +1'd that comment.

There is no way in hell that metal will be better than jazz or funk. Never, ever. Ever.

Er, the rational response is that there are no value judgements in art...


My response is that if metal is superior to funk, jazz or ska I'll eat my tri-corner hat

A lot of people think of Metal as a lower form of music, not artistically beautiful but those people have never really bothered to explore it.

You've only scratched the surface of what is metal, on the surface metal does seem like a joke, just a bunch of kids playing really loud with distorted guitars, but it has so much more to it.

Here are a part by part link to a excellent Metal documentary by a guy called Sam Dunn. it gives you an idea of what metal is..

Explore it, i dare you!

Im in no way saying metal is better then jazz, I'm just trying to show metal is not a lesser genre of music.

See, now, you'll start a flame war with kids arguing on what is better with their own skewed logic..

Nothing is better, music is just music, everybody just listens to whatever the hell they want.. You can keep arguing as kids or accept the fact that not everybody likes metal or jazz or rap etc.
I put a dollar in a change machine. Nothing changed.

Because it's your opinion and personal taste which makes it valid. I think that metal can get pretty noisy, and I don't like the structure it has. Therefore I say that jazz > metal. It's also valid, because that's what I think and it's my own opinion. Learning to respect and learn from each other is what makes music > opinion.

I think metal is better due to personal preference but everyone will think differently. Both metal and jazz take a lot of skill to play and write IMO. Ska however...

+1. No genre is better that the other, just different.

You're opinion is wrong.

Metal isn't better than anything.
No genre is better than another.
How on earth would you compare them fairly?

Theres no argument there.

I like metal, but I really cant see it being better than the combined awesomeness of Jazz, Funk AND Ska
