4 fucking pages and this thread hasn't turned into a flame war about how horrible everyone's taste in music is?
Fuck!

Metalheads stick together, even if they disagree. Where were you in '79 when the dam began to burst? Did you check us out down at the local show? Were you wearing denim? Wearing leather? Denim and Leather brought us all together.

Well that was back in the day, and if you weren't there it doesn't matter anyway, because you wouldn't understand.

Just so the references are caught:





















The second is a clear reference to the first.

I wasn't born in '79.
But I clicked your links and looked at the Megadeth album while listening to Ricky Nelson on my music device.
It made me realize I have no idea where the fuck I am

Compare,

Saxon says: "It was you that set the spirit free"
Megadeth says: "And maybe you weren't there. Doesn't matter anyway. Because you wouldn't understand."

Yes, Dave, I could never have the same excitement seeing your band for the first time and have it compare to being there in the early 80s. My hearing that Bruce Dickinson AND Adrian Smith was rejoining Iron Maiden after a half decade of mediocrity while I was an impressionable Metal kid is nothing in comparison to you ripping off, of all bands, Saxon.

Dave Mustaine is a hipster. That's what you should take away.

Also he's a douche. Just ask ECH.

Bring this mustang guy to me. He is in pain from years of not being appreciated.For some reason no one thought Sweating Bullets and Addicted to Chaos were fun songs.
I will hug him.
I will heal him.
I will release the douche.
I will give back the man.

The single most unmetal moment in the history of history.

Or maybe it was the single most metal moment and we really were all just deluded whiny little bitches  :eek:

I think if you graphed it, it was briefly very metal, because out of the ashes came some landmark metal albums. 


But then came the Black Album
and Countdown to Extinction
and the Reality TV movie
and that thing with Lou Reed
and Mustaine turning into metal's Victoria Jackson


So on balance, it's been pretty unmetal and a big load of dildoes.
Cynicism is a blank check for failure.

Just to be clear, hardcore bands I love like Minor Threat and Black Flag also had no soul.

I have a story to tell you, but it's gonna piss you off and wreck one of those bands for you forever.

I'd still like to hear it, though.  I pretty much killed both those idols already.
