VH1 Doesn’t Know Shit

I recently caught VH1’s “All Time Top 10 Metal” on Much Music.  If this list is anything to go by, these guys know jack shit about metal.

  1. Metallica – Enter Sandman
  2. AC/DC – Back in Black
  3. Iron Maiden – Run to the Hills
  4. Black Sabbath – Paranoid
  5. Judas Priest – You’ve Got Another Thing Coming
  6. Ozzy Osbourne – Crazy Train
  7. Kiss – Rock and Roll All Night
  8. Dio – Rainbow in the Night
  9. Motley Crue – Dr Feelgood
  10. Poison – Talk Dirty To Me

Putting aside my dislike for most of these bands, I’m still left wondering how anyone could possibly have their head shoved so deep into their arses.  Poison?  Motley Crue?  AC/DC?  Fucking Kiss?!?!  I thought this was a list of METAL bands…here’s a tip: long hair, leather, metal spikes, and fake blood doesn’t make a band metal.  It’s the music that makes a band metal.  For as relevant as this list is, they may as well have the likes of the New Kids on the Block, Justin Bieber and Michael Buble on it.

Where’s Megadeth, Slayer, and Strapping Young Lad?  Holy Wars is a bajillion times better than Enter Sandman, which isn’t even Metallicrap’s best song.  Pick anything off the first two albums, it’s better (basically the stuff Mustaine contributed to).

A Top 10 Metal list where only half the names on the list are actually metal.
