watered down,pussified rock

basically rock music was taken over by angsty teens with raging hormones who all dress in the manner of a MALE prostitute (and sometimes like a female prostitute)
Wow,Marilyn Manson.Will you look at the tits on that guy?

A style of music that totally sucks all of the soul out of music and if you're not careful can suck the soul right out of YOU (possibly through your ass.)
Metal settles for the lowest common denominator and it's musicians lack the taste or the balls required to perform real music.So they settle for bad lyrics,bad vocals,bad fashion (any fashion is bad) and generally show an extreme lack of intelligence,taste or style and a general lack of care for music and musical instruments other than guitar and drums.They're barely more musical than rap.

A type of rock and roll music characterized by heavily distorted guitars, powerful drumming, and vocals often performed at an intense screaming level. Very counter culture, aggressive, and nonconformist. Usually played at very high volume.

It was made possible by advancements in electronic amplification in the 1960s.

In music, the phrase originated in the lyrics to the 1968 song "Born To Be Wild" by Steppenwolf:

"I like smoke and lightning
Heavy metal thunder
Racin' with the wind
And the feelin' that I'm under"

William S. Burroughs used the term in a novel a few years earlier as a metaphor for drug use, but did not apply it to music.


Heavy metal bands include:

Steppenwolf
Led Zeppelin
Metallica
Garth Brooks wanted to be a Heavy Metal musician, but he's too lightweight

The one genre of music that people can really get up and enjoy. Said to be started by Black Sabbath but some may argue Iron Maiden was the first.

Some sub genres include: Glam Metal, Thrash Metal, Black Metal, Death Metal ect ect.

Around the late 80s and early 90s Thrash metal basically took over the glam metal phase with bands like Panterra and Metallica.

But hey... at least they were good!

When crappy hip hop music and pop music started becoming popular is the 2000s everyone turned into a big queer.

Now metal is dead and as a result kids are afraid of teachers, smoking, cops and the overall society.
Boy #1: Hey man, listen to this new lady gaga song!

Boy #2: I think Ill go smoke weed and listen to some heavy metal bands like KISS or Poison...

Boy #1: Weed is bad for you! And who the heck are poison and KISS?

Boy #2: -jumps off building-

A seriously awesome style of music which is much more difficult (at least for guitar) than normal rock. But I do not see anyone mentioning the band that I think owns heavy metal, Tool. I am a professional violist and I play guitar, and musically, heavy metal is very similar to classical, it takes skill to play and write.
Tool's music is 100 times what any Blink 182 or Simple Plan guitarist can play. And musically speaking, it is, well actual music.

1. Probably the best genre of music. Created by bands like Led Zepplin and Deep Purple, then revloutionized by 80's bands like Iron Maiden and METALLICA, and is still kept alive today by bands like Tool and Cradle of Filth. Basically, its pure anger turned into music.

2. A animated, adult-oriented film (u.s.) based on a french, Adult oriented Comic. It has gained a large cult following and, even spawned a crappy sequal, Heavy Metal 2000
1. Metallica is god.

2. Heavy metal is one of the only rated R american animated films ever.
