Ha i don't have any scary talent.
Anyway I definitely see your point, but the first time i heard metallica i was 5 or 6 and i still thought it was lame. It sounds more like country music than my personal idea of what 'heavy metal' is.
And today, Zeppelin and Sabbath ARE corny and mainstream. You can get their t-shirts at Wal-Mart, and seeing somebody with one of those shirts on is no guarantee that they're a fan...the fact that i like their music doesn't make them any less comical.
Fact of the matter is I like a lot of music that takes itself so seriously it becomes parody...I'm really into this hip-hop song by Rocko called "Umma Do Me" half because of the message and half because of the rediculous name...
What i'm saying is, it's not that I don't like Pantera or Metallica because they're corny...I don't like them, AND they're corny.
and the LAST thing i'm doing is saying lions shouldn't eat Christians. In fact Christians are packed with the vitamins, minerals and proteins young lions need to grow big and strong. I was just trying to understand homie's perspective on shockvalue.
