Top 10 Most Ignorant and Absurd Music Comments On TheTopTens

Metal_Treasure

The Top Ten

1 "Why does everyone like metal? It's just some satanic dudes screaming about burning churches. You should listen to some good Christian music like Justin Beiber, One Direction, and Nikki Minaj. Not that satanist crap like Metallica, Korn, and Slayer."

This is so funny! Lol! I can't stop laughing! How are Justin Bieber, Nicki Minaj, and One Direction "good Christian artists"?! Lol! They aren't even gospel, and Nicki and Justin are way too bad role models to make Christian music. Christian music has morals. - AnimeDrawer

Apparently, Nicki wants God's anaconda. - Zach808

This comment is just plain cringy. Because every metal musician is a Satanist who "screams about burning churches", right? And anyway, I'd like to know how Justin Bieber, One Direction, and Nicki Minaj are "good Christian music"... - Element119

I don't know why people like music thaat doesn't have farts.Farts are the pinnacle of excellent music.It doesn't matter whether the vocals are good or the beats are good or guitar riffs are good.If it doesn't have farts then it isn't good music.Listen to "my bum goes" by Koit and compare it with "Stressed Out" or "Bohemian Rhapsody" or "Baby" or "Real Slim Shady" or any other song without farts.THIS IS FARTA! -Hippocrite

2 "Rock is a lot faster than metal."

This would be my number one. I was absolutely stunned at the stupidity in this comment - ryanrimmel

Yeah The Beatles are Faster than Slayer (Sarcasm) - christangrant

Compare Stairway To Heaven to Master Of Puppets, which is faster? - Neonco31

Yeah, Master of Puppets is about 220 beats per minute (that's FAST) and Stairway to Heaven is 82 beats per minute. Yeah, Master of Puppets is LEAGUES faster and better than Stairway to Heaven. Stairway to Heaven isn't even that good whereas Master of Puppets is one of the greatest songs of ALL TIME in my opinion! - PhoenixAura81

Depends.Punk is faster.-DarkBoi-X

3 "Ok name me one good metal song why because there are no good metal songs"

Master of Puppets, Hallowed Be Thy Name, Fade to Black, One, Holy Wars... The Punishment Due. Need I say anymore? - PhoenixAura81

One - Metallica? - Userguy44

Octavarium - Dream Theater
I've said enough. - naFrovivuS

4 "I heat Jackie Evan Cho I didn't even know who she was katy is the best" - about Jackie Evancho and Katy Perry

"I Heat Jackie Evan Cho" just cracks me up whenever I see it. The commentator has no basic knowledge about Jackie Evancho, which already defeats the intention of this comment. Also, "was"? Did Jackie Evancho pass away at one point? Its fine if you like Katy Perry, but before you make a comment expressing any area of distaste towards certain music artists, have something constructive to at the very least make your comment presentable, let alone have a good point. - CrimsonShark

The "best" comment ever - you know nothing about a singer but already hate (heat? ) her. And you can even say who's better!
I'm not their fan but I listen to everything just to be informed. - Metal_Treasure

Jackie Evan Cho is likely a better singer than Jackie Evancho. - naFrovivuS

There is nothing wrong with this comment.I also heat Jackie Evan Cho by putting her close to a fire place.-Hippocrite

5 "Freddie Mercury had a vocal range around 8 octaves" - about Freddie Mercury

Freddie Mercury has to be a mutant if he had about 8 octaves. Well, the most octaves recorded on a single person is a Brazilian man who has 10 octaves, but even then, singers barely hit 6 octaves either way. Mercury had about 4, which is still a rare feat. - CrimsonShark

He's one of my favorite singers too. But really? 8 octaves! - zxm

His octave range is still pretty outstanding, but almost no one can sing 8 octaves. - 3DG20

He has a range of 4 octaves, but that is still great. - Userguy44

6 "More like they die from a gunshot, amirite?" - about XXXTentacion - Everybody Dies In Their Nightmares

The user that said this was already known for their hatred of XXXTentacion and decided to make a list CELEBRATING his death. Disgraceful, disgusting, despicable. - isaaonrtdmtr

I'm not his fan but nobody's death is good. I also hate when people say Justin Bieber should die, although I'm not his fan either. - Metal_Treasure

Oh my god this was so rude! - AnnieCallie

Who said that? - PhoenixAura81

7 "he was an AMAZING person" - about Michael Jackson

What's (not) funny about this is that people hated Michael for his child molesting, and then when he died all of a sudden some of those people think he was amazing without looking back at what they said about him before. - NuMetalManiak

I need some serious facts in support of this. I couldn't say he was a good role model. - Metal_Treasure

If child molestation made you a bad person, then I guess wed have no good people - ryanrimmel

He molested CHILDREN?!?! DISGUSTING even though he was a great singer and performer. - PhoenixAura81

8 "I have not listened to their songs [Death] but I have heard of the band. I am much more of a mainstream pop fangirl." - list description to a list this author made about the band Death

Why would you make a list about something you don't know about?

(list - Best Death Songs with Which to Shock Mainstream Pop Fans).
Shortly, the autor of this list had not listened to Death songs but made a list about them... No wonder she put Voice of the Soul at #2 - a soft instrumental that wouldn't shock anyone. - Metal_Treasure

9 "Garage-band material" - about Blind Guardian

Sure, I guess every garage-band employs symphonic orchestras, complex progressive compositions and complex overlapping vocal harmonies (sarcasm).
If Blind Guardian played "garage-band material", their garage must have been the size of an opera house. - Metal_Treasure

And the one who wrote this even added Blind Guardian to my list "Top Ten Garage Rock Bands" how can be someone such biased? - somekindofaguy

Blind Guardian is EPIC! - PhoenixAura81

10 "Guns N' Roses is a metal band not hard rock"

Very common misconception. I wouldn't say its dumb, its just wrong. Its like saying that tomatoes are vegetables - ryanrimmel

Even I know the difference! - Britgirl

The truth is: they are hard rock and not metal.
On top of that, this insightful comment on Guns N' Roses is placed in the Led Zeppelin comment section! - Metal_Treasure

They can also be mistaken for a glam band because of their looks - Wolfenstein_Follower

12 "Metal music is not a sub genre of rock."

God I cringe at looking at that comment because it's a old Jeffery0206 comment I had no idea why I was in this damn mindset...

I love how the author defends this claim to death, but never gave one reason to support it. No reasons, no sources, no credibility - ryanrimmel

It, technically is. It's hard rock, but heavier. - naFrovivuS

I didn't think it was, is it not? I see how it is but never though about it. 10/2/17 - EliHbk

13 "Writing your own songs doesn't define talent"

I mean, this comment isn't wrong. Writing your songs is an indicator of talent, but it doesn't define it

So Bob Dylan has no talent? So funny. - Userguy44

Wow. What's next? Singing on key doesn't define singing talent? I mean, how far somebody's biases can go...
The "insightful" comment I added to this list was written by a visitor trying to excuse Led Zeppelin plagiarism who didn't write all of their songs "alone".
And yes, it was written again by that 70 yo visitor we all know as "the troll". He isn't only a troll and cyberbully - he also wrote some of the dumbest comments on this site.

14 "No skills at all!" - about Adam Lambert

Sure, that's why Queen hired him to sing Freddie's songs live! Because they needed somebody with "no skills at all"... (sarcasm) - Metal_Treasure

Right on. Queen really has no good reason to hire a talented singer - ryanrimmel

If somebody doesn't like Adam Lambert, that's OK, it's their opinion. But to say that Adam doesn't have skills at all just because that person doesn't like him, is wrong. Because he DOES have incredible skills, whether you like him or not. By the way, I'm not a fan of his music but I admire his vocal skills. - Metal_Treasure

That person did not like the artist. It's their opinion. Move on. - styLIShT

Adam Lambert is AWESOME! - PhoenixAura81

15 "Freddie Mercury was good, but definitely not one of the best rock singers of all time"

I think this is sort of subjective. Just saying.

It's their opinion - AnnieCallie

Actually he was one of the best. Great songwriter and pianist as well. - PhoenixAura81

Some of the comments on this list are preety stupid and some comments are opinions that people can't respect - GalaxyCookies

But some opinions are so ignorant that sound stupid, too. And we shouldn't respect ignorance. - Metal_Treasure

16 "Metallica are just overrated! They are not even near AC/DC and I'm a Metallica fan but still AC/DC were the ONES that gave metal a whole new dimension!"

I can't blame the author, it's a common misconception. And I agree that Metallica is overrated. A huge part of their fan base can only name about 4 songs. Plus they haven't really put out any good material since 91 - ryanrimmel

Load and Reload are pretty good and Death Magnetic and Hardwired... to Self-Destruct are AWESOME! - PhoenixAura81

AC/DC isn't even metal how can one confuse AC/DC with metal?

Metallica being overrated is true - EliHbk

Metallic is the greatest metal band (and band in general and one of the best music artists in my opinion) of ALL TIME! AC/DC is hard rock, not metal. And I've never been a fan of either of AC/DC's frontmen's voices. - PhoenixAura81

17 "Megadeth invented thrash metal"

Wow that's totally incorrect Venom invented Thrash Metal heck even Metallica and Slayer invented more than Megadeth did - christangrant

445956 - Queen made what I'd call a "Proto-Thrash" song with "Stone Cold Crazy". I don't think its Thrash Metal, but I do think the track plays a large foreshadowing due to how unconventional it was for its time. - CrimsonShark

And every other metal subgenre. - somekindofaguy

LOL, yes. Very similar to Black Sabbath fans - Black Sabbath invented all metal subgenres, including death metal, black metal, power metal, prog metal... LOL - Metal_Treasure

Megadeath is a poser band - AnnieCallie

Megadeth are not posers, they are thrash metal, they just didn't invent it. - christangrant

Megadeth fans often act like the Black Sabbath fans - both fanbases tend to say some really cringeworthy things. I've read many times that Black Sabbath invented all metal subgenres - from death metal to black metal, prog metal, power metal,... - Metal_Treasure

18 "What? Please! Dave Ellefson is a damn keyboardist, simpletons!"

Hey this comment is joking obviously. - SoldierOfFortune

This comment goes hand in hand with another one:
"You're all wrong. He's the vocalist for Black Flag."
When I read these comments I wrote:
"@visitors, the correct answer is - he's a bassist (Megadeth)."
And I even added an image.
By the way, this happened on the list "Best Metal Guitarists"! LOL. There aren't guitarists among them. - Metal_Treasure

19 "No one likes lame metal music. Compared to metal, Breadwinners is 100000000x times better."-about Pink Floyd

Really? Falling for such an obvious troll?

Pink Floyd is better than Breadpooper

No one likes, except around 50 million people all around the world. F.off. - somekindofaguy

20 "Metal sucks it's nothing but screaming about killing people, I'm surprised you people even call it music. You guys need to listen to some Drake and educate yourselves."

I am pretty sure that the metal song Wheel Of Time by Blind Guardian contains more music than any Drake song. So I don't think I need to "educate myself". Most probably the author of this comment needs to "educate" himself and should start with the fact that most of the metal songs aren't "screaming about killing people". - Metal_Treasure

Yeah well, Drake ain't that great either. His vocal and lyrical delivery is rather limited and much of his discography is mediocre at best. A much more better representative is Kendrick Lamar. And why are people's thoughts on Metal so backwards? - CrimsonShark

And plus, drake created the most cancerous song of all time: In My Feelings. - IceFoxPlayz

Metal is nothing but screaming? You've clearly never heard Judas Priest! - naFrovivuS

Drake isn't good in my opinion. Metal, on the other hand, is one of the greatest things ever. And most metal singers don't scream out lyrics. - PhoenixAura81

21 "Ugly, fat, can't sing" - about Adele

She's a big lady but has a pretty face. And who cares how she looks like if she can sing? Yes, Adele definitely CAN sing. Again, I'm not her fan but I'm not deaf.
And I'm not biased (unlike some metal haters who refuse to admit that there are great singers in metal). - Metal_Treasure

That's really mean - AnnieCallie

You know how they say "Don't judge a book by its cover"? - CloudInvasion

This is true. Adele is just some talentless fat land whale who is ugly and us metalheads don't judge by looks unlike you dumb poop fans and posers. Also Metal is the best. Metal is just noise and is satanic which means it is the best. Adele is not satanic which is another reason to hate her. Adele is also a pop singer and ALL pop singers are talentless. LONG LIVE HEAVY METAL AND HAIL SATAN! -Metalhead666

22 "Metal is a bunch of nonsense. It's all just a bunch of useless screaming. Metal fans are a bunch of losers with mental problems who actually think this garbage takes talent to make."

So this person thinks if you like metal, you're a loser with mental problems, let alone the rest of this comment. This is one of the worst comments I've seen on this site. - Element119

No, there is barely screaming unless it's supposed to be that for aggressiveness. Metal fans are great people (I'm a huge metal fan and I'm not that bad). And metal musicians (most of them) have INCREDIBLE talent. - PhoenixAura81

I guess such things about metal are written by people who think that screamo and emo are metal when they aren't. Blood on the Dance Floor and similar aren't metal. - Metal_Treasure

Some of the "losers" who like metal include:
Stephen King, Sir Christopher Lee, Chris Jericho, Prince Harry, Dave Grohl, Lady Gaga, Cameron Diaz, Jim Carrey, Nicolas Cage, Michael Fassbender, Kenny G., Beck, Demi Lovato, Chris Hemsworth, Sage Kotsenburg (Olympic gold medalist), and many more "losers". - Metal_Treasure

Lady Gaga and Metallica actually performed together once. I wish I did that. - PhoenixAura81

23 "he is not qualified to carry Jim Morrison, Mick Jagger, or Elvis Presley's luggage" - about Freddie Mercury

Comparing music artists is a waste of time. Freddie Mercury was his own uniqueness, plain and simple. Jim Morrison, Mick Jagger and Elvis Presley are all unique and influential in their own way. Let's be glad we have all four of them as inspirations and star icons for the music industry. - CrimsonShark

I totally agree with this statement. Sorry, but I find Freddie's voice to be nondescript. Jim, Mick, and Elvis are unmistakable. - Crwth

Of course he's not. He'd more or less be qualified to PACK their luggage. - isaaonrtdmtr

This statement is totally wrong - Freddie Mercury is able to sing all songs by these 3 singers but not vice versa.
Also, unfortunately Mick Jagger and Jim Morrison even sing out of tune... very often.
The comment was written by "the troll" (a certain visitor we all know) on the list Top 10 Most Overrated Singers In Rock. - Metal_Treasure

24 "an addled burnout" - about Ronnie James Dio

Laughable. The guy who wrote it is a metal hater and anonymous troll. I guess he confused Ozzy with Dio because this insightful statement was part of a comment on Heaven and Hell by Black Sabbath. He didn't even know this was a Dio song but bothered to comment. - Metal_Treasure

It annoys me how you assume every comment you disagree with is written by a troll. Yes they may be stupid but it's not necessarily a troll

@_Jack_ RE "It annoys me how you assume every..."
It isn't what you think. I'm not assuming, I know exactly who wrote certain anonymous comments. He is a real troll and several people on this site know who he is and we can recognize his comments among millions of other comments.
I bet you would be annoyed even more if this particular troll and cyberbully was visiting each and every of your lists to write factually inaccurate yet insulting comments just because he hates what you like.
Oh, and excuse me, are you telling me that I have to agree that Dio is "an addled burnout"?
In fact, it was you who was assuming and this is annoying because you probably don't know anything about this "visitor" who is actually a cyberbully. But people who often make metal lists know his style very well. - Metal_Treasure

28 "How did such an addled burnout ever put seven words together?" - about Ronnie James Dio

How do I know an anonymous comment was written by a certain "visitor"? It's factually inaccurate but attacks the metal community - fans and great musicians. Basically, a definition of troll comment - it's goal is simply to get an angry response and start pointless internet fights. - Metal_Treasure

Well, I already added "an addled burnout" but then I decided that the entire sentence should be here. Yeah, this was written by an ignorant metal hater who confused Dio with Ozzy. - Metal_Treasure

29 "Katy's much better than Jackie Evancho." - about Katy Perry

@Billyv - I'm quite tolerant to different opinions and tastes, and I have to say that in this case it's not just my opinion or preference because I'm not a fan and I am completely unbiased. Just ask a vocal coach who is better. Without a doubt, the answer would be - Jackie. - Metal_Treasure

I'm not their fan but I'm not deaf: in what world is Katy better than Jackie Evancho? - Metal_Treasure

Shouldn't we just let people have their own opinion?

30 "kurt cobain is definitely, without doubt, the best singer of any GENRE, grunge or not!"

Yup, most Grunge "fans" literally worship Kurt Cobain, even though his lyrics look like they were written by a rebellious 13 year old girl.

A lot of these grunge fans listen to nirvana, Alice in chains, Soundgarden, and Pearl Jam. They've probably never heard of The Melvins, Mother Love Bone, or Green River (The creators of Grunge.) - ryanrimmel

OK, Kurt is cool but he isn't even the best grunge singer. At least Chris Cornell and Layne Staley are better, that's for sure. And there are also better singers outside grunge. - Metal_Treasure

As much as I respect Nirvana, the other Grunge titans have superior vocalists. Hell, Breaking Benjamin and Three Days Grace have a better vocalist than Kurt Cobain, which is surprising considering both bands cite Nirvana as a major influence. - CrimsonShark

This guy has never heard of Layne Staley probably. He beats Cobain by miles. - Userguy44

Oh...
So right now I am hurting my ears with Wheel Of Time by Blind Guardian?! (sarcasm) - Metal_Treasure

33 "...Mr. McCartney can't sing very well. Sorry"

His Beatles song "Yesterday" has been covered by over 2,200 different artists. He has collectively sold 700+ records (with The Beatles and solo). To say he isn't talented is beyond stupid, nobody will ever be as successful as him in the music world - ryanrimmel

Thanks Billyv - this comment deserves to be on this list. He probably isn't the best singer ever but to say that he "can't sing very well" is ridiculous. - Metal_Treasure

He just made a new album - Userguy44

34 "Nirvana Invented Grunge"

Yes, they would prove influential to Grunge's development and be a key factor in its popularity, but they seem to take more credit then they deserve, which leaves others like Alice in Chains, Soundgarden and Pearl Jam somewhat neglected, which is definitely not a good thing. Also noting that neither of the four invented Grunge at all, but they do deserve their recognition and influence for years to come. - CrimsonShark

"Poser" Nirvana fans are so ignorant that they think Nirvana invented grunge which isn't true Green River invented grunge and if you want to go further technically the Nile Song by Pink Floyd is a grunge song.

A "poser" Nirvana fan is a person who says they love Nirvana even though they have only heard the popular songs from Nevermind and think SLTS is the best song ever made and Nevermind is the best album ever made, typically they wear Nirvana shirts with their logo on them.

35 "He should be the 1st!" - about Ozzy Osbourne on the list "Greatest Heavy Metal/Hard Rock Vocalists "

I get what you mean but this doesn't annoy me too much. I think the person was just going by personal preference. Let's be real, 99% of the votes cast on this site are for personal preference. I don't think any harm was intended with this comment, at least when compared to some of the other examples. - IronSabbathPriest

Ozzy is at #6, which is already too disturbing. Moreover, he is higher than Axl Rose - #7, Freddie Mercury - #8, and so on. - Metal_Treasure

Why not? Ozzy 1, he's better than all modern metal/ metalcore singers, death metal, and black metal singers. Plus, he has a good voice. But Robby me boy is better - SoldierOfFortune

I think he's a great singer, but not as good as Bruce Dickinson and James Hetfield in my opinion. - PhoenixAura81

36 "They began the grunge music, they are grunge, they should be number 1, shows how many morons there are that they're not. To even vote for the Alice in Chains makes you a moron, not as dumb as the 3% that voted for the Melvins and their back stabbing..."

Because Nirvana is the Second Coming? Kurt Cobain died for our taste in music and to invigorate the Grunge movement? THEY ARE GRUNGE?!

I mean, this post-fame is just ridiculous. I like some of their songs, but this over-glorification is a seminal example to show why Nirvana is overrated. Neither of the Grunge Big Four "invented" Grunge, they just helped in development and popularity for contemporary musicians and fans. I'd even argue that bands inspired by and derived from them, such as Breaking Benjamin and Three Days Grace are better.

In addition, Melvins and Green River deserve their reputation for laying the groundwork. And Soundgarden is the best example of Grunge's talent and fame. - CrimsonShark

What would be funnier than comments like this one? Keep 'em coming guys, we need fun! - Metal_Treasure

People like this usually don't even know what words like I.Q. means. - somekindofaguy

37 "Metal lyrics are usually cheesy"

Every single music genre at least has some music artists that are cheesy. While Heavy Metal is no exception, most can normally be taken seriously. A lot of Power Metal and Symphonic Metal acts unfortunately tend to be quite cheesy at times. Those two genres are still good mind you.

But even then, the term "Cheesy" is incredibly subjective. - CrimsonShark

Yeah, Cannibal Corpse is SUCH a cheesy band. - CloudInvasion

Metal lyrics are some of the greatest. - PhoenixAura81

"Cheesy" metal lyrics (as usual):
"Landmine
Has taken my sight, Taken my speech, Taken my hearing, Taken my arms, Taken my legs, Taken my soul, Left me with life in hell" (One - Metallica)
Not "cheesy" non-metal lyrics:
"Girl, you know I want your love; your love was handmade for some BODY like me! " (Shape Of You - Ed Sheeran) - Metal_Treasure

Yeah, the Metallica lyrics are SO cheesy and Ed's lyrics are SO real and captivating (all complete sarcasm, the Metallica lyrics are some of the greatest I've ever heard and the Ed Sheeran lyrics are some of the cheesiest and sappiest and that came from one of the worst songs I've ever heard). - PhoenixAura81

38 "Stairway to heaven is THE original rock song"

Historically speaking, the original rock song that started the wave and brought in a new style was probably Rock Around the Clock by Bill Haley, as it had a beat that hadn't been quite popularized yet, and was mostly found in jazz songs. - naFrovivuS

Ice Ice Baby is THE original hip hop song - somekindofaguy

42 This is possibly the worst death metal song I've ever heard. It sounds awful and there's no feeling to it at all. It's disgraceful to be called music - About Raining Blood by Slayer

I think "Raining Blood" is overrated (I prefer "Angel of Death" and "Hell Awaits"). But this comment is barely presentable, let alone having a built point. First off, "Raining Blood" is Thrash Metal (Though it is a big influence and a reminisce on Death Metal) and is normally seen as a Metal Anthem (I sometimes jam about on it). - CrimsonShark

Raining Blood is one of the best thrash songs ever. - HEAVYMETALTHUNDER12345

Slayer is THRASH Metal if that commenter hasn't noticed. - PhoenixAura81

1st of all it isn't Death Metal 2nd, No Feeling at all uh wrong it gives you a feeling of something called ADRENALINE and 3rd, It's not disgraceful to music because it was considered by many to be one of the best Thrash songs of all time

1. The song isn't metal at all, It's hard rock
2. It didn't invent metal because its not metal.

I agree with CrimsonShark that Black Sabbath (with Ozzy) is the most overrated Metal band. And I also agree that Black Sabbath fans are worse than Megadeth fans - both fanbases credit their favorite bands for things the bands didn't do.
In response to many exaggerated, absurd and annoying claims by Black Sabbath fans, I made several lists:
Top 10 Reasons Why War Pigs by Black Sabbath Didn't Create Power Metal
Top 10 Reasons Why Black Sabbath's Sabbath Bloody Sabbath Didn't Create Death Metal
Top 10 Reasons Why After Forever by Black Sabbath Didn't Create Christian Metal
Top 10 Reasons Why Symptom of the Universe by Black Sabbath Didn't Create Thrash Metal - Metal_Treasure

45 "Oh, I'm a MASSIVE Motorhead fan. what song do I know of theirs? Err...Ace of Spade....?"

46 "Three Days Grace is the most unique Rock band"

They do (or did) have a really good vocalist in Adam Gontier, who did make the band unique compared to other Hard Alternative acts. There are differences between each Hard Alternative bands, though they can be difficult to notice. - CrimsonShark

God I hate a lot of my old comments on my old account I said a lot of stupid rubbish.

Even though they sound just like any other alternative/post grunge band - ryanrimmel

I love this band. - PhoenixAura81

49 "Only idiots like metal"

Oh... Really?
Some of the "idiots" who like metal include:
Stephen King, Sir Christopher Lee, Prince Harry, Chris Jericho, Dave Grohl, Kenny G., Beck, Sage Kotsenburg (Olympic gold medalist), to name a few. - Metal_Treasure

What? This can't be serious! - Userguy44

I LOVE metal and I'm not THAT big of an idiot. - PhoenixAura81

50 "Dave Mustaine is God and creator of Speed/Thrash Metal"

Dave Mustaine is one of the greatest metal musicians ever but he didn't create Speed/Thrash Metal. By the way, these are 2 different metal subgenres but again, he didn't create them. - Metal_Treasure

And he wrote every riff for Slayer, Exodus and Anthrax, and every lyrics for Nirvana, The Beastie Boys and he went back in time and wrote most of the Beatles songs, it's a fact. Deal with It haters. - somekindofaguy

You can call him a god of thrash metal, cause he certainly is one of the greatest guitarists I've ever seen in metal - ryanrimmel

Quite the contrary actually. Megadeth is actually the least influential out of the Thrash Big Four as outside of setting up a huge standard for Thrash Metal and developing a respectable community and recognition for its music and lyrics, there's not much to pick out in terms of setting up something in the future. Metallica branched out Metal's popularity and would be a major factor in keeping mainstream Metal relevant during the 1990s, Slayer would be seen as a big influence for Extreme Metal and Anthrax would influence Rap Metal and Nu Metal during the mid-late 1990s.

In addition, neither of the four "Invented" Thrash Metal. That owing goes to Venom. Although Mustaine can be considered one of Metal's greatest guitarists, I can't take that back. - CrimsonShark
