@visitor - Good God, you're difficult. Looks like I'm gonna have to explain everything to you again. Just because this item is on the list doesn't necessarily mean we think it's true. It's just a way of Dave Mustaine expressing HIS opinion. That we think is done in an impressive way. Maybe if you actually listened to the song you would understand. And for the record, I like other genres besides metal, even though it's my favourite. I listen to various artists of every genre. - IronSabbathPriest

@visitor- so basically you're saying I'm unworthy of arguing with you. I apologise, your Grace. You think because I'm 15 I haven't seen a lot of this world. You know nothing of me. How old are you exactly? 20? 30? 40? 16? And you smoke cigars, woah. I'm kneeling before you. Maybe try weed next. And I suppose you won't listen to the song either. But that's your problem. - IronSabbathPriest

Good grief. A dumbass, empty-headed slogan left over from the drug-addled hippies, yippies and yahoos that polluted the 60s. Upon whom do YOU depend to defend you and your country from it's deadliest enemies? Ozzy Osbourne?

Ironic. You're calling someone else ignorant because they don't worship at the same altar of nihilism and noise you've chosen for your enlightenment? Of course, you chose to ignore the question: Whom would you choose to defend you and yours from an existential threat? Would it be 50,000 watts of primitive noise, or the British military, whom you so casually dismiss as stupid?

6 Keep the world with all its sin, it's not fit for livin' in - Beyond The Realms Of Death, Judas Priest
7 It's when life's so precious that every moment hurts - White Omega, Moonspell

@PositronWildhawk: you nailed it, too - the author of this line published 2 poetry books and has a degree in philosophy! Nobody on this list has this combination. He is also their singer. His name is Fernando Ribeiro and he's Portuguese but writes and sings in English. - Metal_Treasure
