I think most heavy metal sucks. Now please don't think i dont like Iggy Pop or Led Zeppelin, but i hate most. There are many reasons from being crappy sounding to being self loathing (and whining about alot of stuff). But the main reason is that it is corny and cheesy. i mean look at ozzy and slipnot and korn, they are pure cheese from their boring costumes to their stupid on stage antics its just cheese. And dont get me started on Kiss, the kings of cheese, but it's all so pedestrian. Anyway your thought's?

This is quite possibly the most opinionated post I've ever read in recent memory.I happen to think country is 'crappy sounding'. Does that mean I'm right? Hell no! It just means I don't like it.Originally Posted by Capt. HaddockAnd the vast majority of modern music-and by 'modern', I mean slightly newer then, say, Gustav Holst. If you somehow missed this, I really, really envy you.Originally Posted by Capt. HaddockOk, I'll sorta give you this one. However, I'm willing to bet Ozzy or Gene Simmons or whatnot think their costumes look like crap, too. However, they serve a purpose-generate publicity. If Rammstein went on stage in t-shirts and cargo pants, as opposed to their usual bondage-gear type outfits and flamethrowers, they would generate a mere fraction of the publicity that they have.Originally Posted by Capt. HaddockAgain, so is the vast majority of modern music. Plus, this is a generalization. I'm sure there are heavy metal groups that aren't 'so pedestrian'.Originally Posted by Capt. Haddock
I'm willing to bet that your listening selection is pretty limited-odd songs here and there on the radio and whatnot. That leads to opinionated posts that require somebody like myself to argue against and whatnot.
And, I really wanted to use that gif at the top of the page. Because it's cool

Well it wasn't meant to be that serious of a post any way... and I agree with a lot of your points. I think most modern rock is horrible. I really wanted to get a discussion going about Heavy Metal and thought people might respond to this in a humorous way. Thanks for your comments.
two things, First "Pedestrien" what the hell do you mean by that, perhaps you were thinking of Charlatan or maybe even Inadequate. is that it?Originally Posted by Capt. Haddock
Second, when did Led Zeppelin become heavy metal (excluding the mis spelled Led, which ironically is a heavy metal).
"Everyone should try arrogance, it's absolutely wonderful. You can go out, do whatever you want, and go home. And the best part is, no matter what you do, or how much you ***** everything up, nothing's ever your fault because 'thou art god'."

Pedestrian in the sense Capt. Haddock is using it means ordinary or bland, or everyday.
Actually I read that the term heavy metal was first used by a music journalist to describe Led Zeppelin. They were the original heavy metal band and their music is what the term applies to.
I think he said something wanky like "Led Zeppelin sound like heavy metal falling from the sky." So yeah. Led Zeppelin are more heavy metal than any other band in existence, if you want to split hairs.
Listen to Dimmu Borgir or Children of Bodom along with similer artists (most internet radio type things should list them). I dare you to tell me they sound "pedestrian" compared to the bands you here on the radio. To listen to these bands look for em on internet radio and if you have launchcast then look on launchcast.com
Caution: The bands listed above are very much satanist so if your a big religous guy (anti satan or simaler) DO NOT LISTEN. All the do is sing about death and satan. In fact the names of those two are events in which lots-o-people died (same with ramstein).
Another kinda cool band is E. town concrete.
Go black metal!!!

Why, why do some people start thread like this, do they want to be banned or flamed to death.
Now, there's 10.000+ members of this forum, so of course not everyone listens to and likes the same music, so stop crying because of that there is people that doesn't agree to your way of thinking.
Also these topics are rather pointless, it will not lead to anything it will only piss people off.
You see, there's a alot of diffrent kind of music that I think suck, but you don't see me starting topics about them, do you? The reason is that it will not lead to anything, everyone will yell att each other write arguments/counter it.
