Thread: Metal Music

  1. #61
    Metallica is one of my all-time favorites. I’m not sure it’s possible to listen to “One”, without headbanging. I was in San Francisco for a summer internship when they recorded S&M. Unfortunately, I had no clue they were doing it. Talk about a missed opportunity. The black album (officially titled Metallica) was pretty influential in my youth. The intro to “Enter Sandman” still gets me every time. I listen to the “Metallica” station on pandora when I work out. It’s pretty much the perfect work out music.

    White/Rob Zombie is a bit of a guilty pleasure too.

    Tool playing live in Raleigh Nov 24. Tickets went on sale Friday I think or something like that.

    I can't go this time but I've seen them (Lateralus tour). I work Monday in Winston so Sunday night in Raleigh is not happening. But I hope some of you can!

    New album is Fear Inoculum

    I wanted so badly to get "Master of Puppets" or "One" put on in Cameron during a timeout or two during my senior year. Alas, it was not meant to be.

    Hard to believe that Black Sabbath is held with such reverence today. Having been around when they first came out, the hot band in NYC high schools at that time was Grand Funk Railroad. Just how hot was GFR? Well they broke the Beatles record for selling out Shea Stadium, that's how popular they were.

    Today, Black Sabbath is in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and are widely credited with creating heavy metal music, while the only way GFR is getting into the HoF is if they buy a ticket.

    Grand Funk Railroad deserves it, I'm actually a little surprised to learn they weren't already inducted.

    It is criminal that neither Little Feat nor Warren Zevon are in.
    1991 -- 1992 -- 2001 -- 2010 -- 2015

    So, I don't really follow the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, but both of those surprise me too. Maybe I'm living in some weird music bubble? Or maybe we need to send laywers, guns, and money to get this HOF business settled.

    Once again, thanks for all the advice and recommendations. My wife hates you all.

    Pantera has a great catalog.

    Rolling Stone arguing that Black Sabbath is the greatest metal band and
    the group most responsible for metal as the world knows it today

    I listened to a ton of Zeppelin as well as the usual hard rocking classic rock bands in HS but I don’t find that or other forms of metal very interesting these days.
