The Top Ten
I first listened to bands like AC/DC and Motley Crue before I listened to Metallicas Seek & Destroy which was rhe first Metal song I have heard from Memory - christangrant
This is me. I guess my transition to metal was easier compared to some other metal fans who listened to genres that are far from metal. I listened to Queen, Led Zeppelin, AC/DC, Whitesnake, to name a few.
I was lucky because I had no restrictions, no pressure from other people. I was free to choose my favorite music - rock and then metal. - Metal_Treasure
This is a quote by the Toptenner and metalhead gemcloben:
"I continued listening to Queen, and I had a huge obsession with it. I had all of their songs, I listened to them all the time and knew everything about them. My sister said "it won't last, when you get older, you will start liking good music, like Beyonce"... How wrong was she." (post "how I became obsessed with music")
Yes, she was wrong - his favorite genre is thrash metal! - Metal_Treasure
I listened to Dire Straits, Foreigner, The Rolling Stones (these are only some of the bands). - Metal_Treasure
If Bryan Adams is pop rock, then - yes. I still like him. - Metal_Treasure
A quote by ryanrimmel - Toptenner and metalhead:
"So I was into the really bad rap/pop garbage that was played on the radio up until I was about 10. That year, AC/DC came out with "Black Ice" and as a celebration, Sirius XM radio made an AC/DC only station. My dad would listen to it in the car, and I was hooked on AC/DC. Few weeks later, I discovered Black Sabbath and became obsessed with them, and as a result of listening to so much Sabbath, I discovered Ozzy's solo career as well as Dio and Rainbow." (post "How I Became Addicted to Metal Music.") - Metal_Treasure
Visitor: "Since I've heard all of the songs by Linkin Park, I wanted to try out on newer bands. Even though I loved this band, it seemed like it's time to try listening to something new. This gave me two options: a similarly-sounding or lighter Taking Back Sunday, or a more aggressive Metallica? During those days, since I wanted to get relieved with stress in school and that I easily got pissed at my classmates in group projects, I chose heavier and more aggressive music, so of course, now you knew my choice, then what song got me into them? It's the overrated "Enter Sandman". - Metal_Treasure
I quoted this visitor comment from another list - it described very well the transition to metal. - Metal_Treasure
This is true I used to listen to country music but I don't anymore because its just Pop songs with Words like Beer Redneck Trucks Tractors thrown In. - christangrant
I think inhave heard some post grunge songs because I looked around and found some Creed and Nickelback albums - christangrant
