Rofl at people who think Jimi Hendrix is heavy metal.

Do you know what is more stupid? The people commenting. "Where is Sliplknot!" "Where is Marylin Manson." And one of the guys that said that said King Diamond sucks!

And the people who are like "Hey! I listen to soft rock. Metal sucks because I am not automatically accustomed to Nile!"

Why does nobody know what metal is?

EDIT: Some guys said that Linkin Park is better than Dio...
#12
boohoo...

why take top lists seriously? Not only is this "article" another product of some generic 40 year old rocker who thinks he's so hardcore compared to his computer programmer buddies because he likes AC/DC, but it lacks any sort of originality. He expresses the same generic opinions for the same typical bands. Same story, different guy. I don't know what the point of writing that was in the first place. Is he trying to get e-cred by expressing an opinion that's been expressed a million times before?

I love Rush to death, but they're not heavy metal. And no Megadeth?


EPIC FAIL.

I will give him credit for not being a total twat though. He did choose Priest for their seemingly immortal spirit, and he did acknowledge that there is debate between what is "true metal" and what is metal in the first place. But, 25 top metal bands better have metal bands up for damn good reasons. No Alice in Chains for being bluesy, no Robin Trower for being influential to metal guitarists, and no Mercyful Fate because they're "slightly more entertaining than Venom".

This is just a plain crap reason:

20) Thin Lizzy: You'll see that I'm partial to bands who can write songs. Play as many notes as you like. Scream your lungs out. Tell me the world isn't fair. Hail Satan, if you must. Tell me more about how you're going to "rock me." Or tell me all about the people in a faraway galaxy who will one day communicate through the electric guitar. But I'll still take someone who can write: "Jailbreak," "Cold Sweat," "Whiskey In The Jar" and "The Boys Are Back In Town."

Only thing I agreed with on that list was Meshuggah.

Too bad his reasoning blew.

He basically included Meshuggah because they "made things difficult for themselves". Oh yea, they REALLY make things hard by having massively repetition-based songs that all have some marker in 4/4 (usually Haake's hi hat/crash).

Then he said they refuse to play in standard time signatures and get this...KEY signatures. Because there is a standard key signature (e minor anyone? olol). And I've already explained how Meshuggah play every song in 4/4 in essence. Sorry, he loses. I do love me some Meshuggah now and then though.

Aerosmith is so fucking metal.

Hendrix isn't even rock, let alone metal.

And Maiden at 10? Surely they're ahead of Slayer.

I believe this falls under the same category as Vs Threads..
People will start arguing over the results making it into a "I am rubber, you are glue" thread simply because you can't compare bands in metal, you can only point out their uniqueness and flaws (if there are any).

making a Top25 is a failure of epic proportions.

Robin Trower?! Aerosmith?! And who the crap is Kyuss?! When I first saw Meshuggah, I was like: "Wow! Maybe this is going to be good!", but no! They have no Opeth! No Megadeth! No Dream Theater! I'm friggin' confused. That list was insulting.

Sorry, but I've never heard of them. I mean, after seeing Kiss, Robin Trower, Aerosmith, and other non-Metal bands being label, it's hard to tell who was actually Metal or not. I'll check out Kyuss, though. That list actually intrigued me about the, because there is rarely a Metal band I haven't heard of.

Well, at least Meshuggah's on there.




Yea, but that's one of the things that really confused me. They filled the list up with great non-Metal bands, but somehow found the time to add in Meshuggah and Mercyful Fate....AT THE BOTTOM OF THE LIST!

Now, with grindcore, screamo and other sub-varieties that make you wonder where are the "Log Cabin Metallists," it's to the point where you could argue that Cher and Ween should qualify somehow.

This is where I stopped reading.

What they said about meshuggah was an absolutely joke. They are from sweden and that don't make it easy to jump out :S? Where the **** has he lift the past 20 years? Sweden has been one of the most dominating metal country's ever.

Bolded is wrong. But yeah, the guy has no idea what he's on about.
#33
I don't see much point in whining about this or any other of these wank Top X lists. They're never going to please everyone, and what is considered 'metal' in the real world is not as clearly defined a thing as most people who listen to it want it to be.
#34
I dearly love this part about Meshuggah

"First off, they're in Sweden, not exactly a prime lift-off point for World Domination, unless you're IKEA."

In the metal world, isn't Sweden one of THE prime lift off points? clearly Yahoo don't know their metal, and this isn't the only point that displays that.

And I'm pretty sure Swedish Metal has made more difference to a lot of people's lives than second-rate furniture.

OH NOEZ! HE SAID SOMETHING ABOUT METAL!! QUICK!! TO THE CRUSADE WAGON!!! METAL MUST BE SAVED!!!!!!!!

Children are dying around the world, and you are offended by someone calling AC/DC metal. You shouldn't get to ask why people point and laugh at your Maiden shirts...
