Top 10 Annoying Things About Making Metal Lists
I totally agree metal elitists are annoying but the word "elitist" is often used in a wrong way - many fans use the word "elitist" when they disagree with an opinion.
About Limp Bizkit: Encyclopaedia Metallum is widely considered as the best, biggest and most correct source of metal information but they don't have articles / info about nu metal bands. Why do you think Search results for "Limp Bizkit" look like this: "No matches found. Please try with different search terms." But Encyclopaedia Metallum has info about metal bands with only 1 album.
'Limp Bizkit never played Metal.'
This is really annoying - Led Zeppelin, their members and their songs in the top 10 on many metal lists... Also Kurt Cobain, Bon Scott, etc. the best metal singers...
I am disgusted when I see Rock bands voted in metal lists
I like Rock but don't add any Rock bands
to a list about Metalbands.
"Look at those emos! " - Fretto
"Why the **** is Slayer on this list!? - Fretto
That's why I have to think...a lot - Ananya
The best Metalbands of (year) - Fretto
Most of the time it's good but when Metallica is labeled as the best Death Metalband... - Fretto
'Slayer played Grindcore...' - Fretto
Yes Fretto, I strongly agree with ya
Metallica is almost everywhere.
Ironically in my list too.
Facts to think about: Encyclopaedia Metallum don't have articles / info about nu metal bands. They have info about all metal bands under the sun, even with only one EP but if you search "Slipknot" you will see this: "Slipknot were from New Haven, Connecticut. Stiemy (bass/vocals) was previously the singer in Fatal Vision...", and so on. And there's a sentence:"Not to be confused with the nu-metal/modern rock band Slipknot from Des Moines, Iowa."
It's not that I ignorantly think nu metal is not metal, but because it really isn't. I heard it's actually supposed to be a genre of hard rock or something.
When Nu Metal is not Metal then Power Metal, Heavy Metal or Groove Metal aren't as well.
Riiight it's trash
