The pointless argument and abuse thread

Welcome yourself into the new modern crisis
These days they are the epitome of the ageing, corporate American millionaire rawk band but 35-odd years ago, they were the spearhead of a generation of bands that revolutionised & redefined the metal genre. Arguably they've not done anything worth a damn in 30 years, but their first four albums were incendiary.

Unless you're saying that 'cos you don't like metal, in which case there's no help for you... :tongue:

They've always just left me cold. No groove, no soul to them. No doubt they influenced a lot of bands I do like but I can't get on with them. Whatever that indefinable thing is that good bands have, they don't have it for me.

Mind you, my wife likes them a lot and one of our children is (sort of) named after one of the band so I shouldn't slag them off too much. And now I've picked my guitar up again after twenty years I am trying to perfect the rhythm part to Enter Sandman, but that's as an exercise really.

You thick, illiterate, inbread, sheep shagging, seedless woolyback.

How's that for a start?

You describe your wife so affectionately……..

Ha. My wife was playing Master of Puppets to the 7yo and I said that was fine because they're a great sort of kiddy friendly metal. So she accused me of listening to 'bands that wish they were Metallica but aren't as good.' I took exception to that.



I was listening to Pantera.
