And I've never understood this stupid trend of throwing jazz passages into metal. They are so very out of place and stupid. Yet again, the uneducated out there consider this avant garde and edgy. I consider it absurd.

You're kidding me, right? Clearly someone who has never heard of Atheist or Cynic.

Atheist kick ass. I just read something about a farewell tour or album? Or did I miss that boat already. Dammit, I need to find time to pay more attention to these important things.

Dan the Automator is the guy in Clint Eastwood and yes, he is black.


Hopefully someone else jumped on this, but Dan the Automator is Asian, not black.

Covered it.

I can't see how Primus would qualify as metal. Poor Les Claypool. If only he were just a little less weird. Just enough to be taken seriously.

Yeah, then he might be GWAR level.

Primus was playing a festival or something with Alice In Chains once, and while AIC was doing "Rooster," Les snuck out on stage in a giant chicken costume and danced around. I don't think Layne Staley was too pleased by that.

I see... then they're about GWAR level right now.

I respect a man who can dance around in a silly outfit in front of people, especially if he can steal someone else's thunder at the same time.

I pretty much loathe what I've heard by Linkin Park. 

do they even count as metal? 

just out of curiosity though, how come you dont like them?  generally i like the sound they have, but i find their lyrics to be insanely vapid and empty.

Some of those that work forces, are the same that burn crosses

What the fuck does that even mean?

I know! It breaks my heart to hear earth-rending guitar ruined by some retard singing like a drunk frat boy belching the alphabet. I have a death metal fan friend who takes it very seriously when I bitch mightily about how her favorite singers routinely ruin music I would otherwise like.

If the vocals are stopping you from liking the music, you're not much of a music fan to begin with

Who the hell are you to make such a judgment about somebody? Are you saying that the only way to be a "real" music fan is to sit there and put up with something you personally find unpleasant? By that logic, we should all be fans of Michael Bolton.

That is weapons-grade awesome.

I think this may qualify for most inane forum post of 2007 so far.

What "Rage" was saying there is that some police and military guys are cross burners.  It represents the fear that many African Americans have that the people that are supposed to protect them are actually... you know...

I can understand Sarcasm's anger at it, but you have to recognize that the line reads... "SOME of those that work forces..." not ALL.  And, unfortunately, that's very true.

Well if that song has to be classifed as music in-and-of-itself, I have a right to put it in any genre I choose. And I choose Rock Power Ballads.

Whoa whoa whoa... You're saying that those noises Zach de la Rocha makes are supposed to be words? In English? Huh.
