The Top Ten

1 According to Ozzy, the best metal album is AC/DC's Highway to Hell According to Ozzy, the best metal album is AC/DC's Highway to Hell John Michael "Ozzy" Osbourne was born on December 3, 1948. He is also known as ''The Prince of Darkness''. Ozzy is an English singer, songwriter, and television personality. He rose to prominence in the early 1970s as the lead vocalist of the band Black Sabbath. Osbourne was fired from Black Sabbath ...read more.

Another proof he's not a metal musician, he don't even know what metal is and he betrayed metal several times.

Definitely false - even the kids know this isn't a metal album. - Metal_Treasure

AC/DC isn’t even metal. - 3DG20

2 Kurt Cobain on Guns N’ Roses: "They’re really talentless people, and they write crap music, and they’re the most popular rock band on the earth right now. I can’t believe it." Kurt Cobain on Guns N’ Roses: Kurt Cobain was born February 20, 1967, in Aberdeen, Washington. In 1987, he started the grunge band Nirvana, which became one of the most successful bands ever. He was a talented yet troubled grunge performer. Kurt Cobain became a rock legend in the 1990s with his band. He committed suicide at his ...read more.

I thought Nirvana was the most popular band lol. - Userguy44

I agree with Kurt. Guns N Roses suck in my opinion. Axl just whines all the time but Slash is good. Nirvana is one my favourite bands though. I especially like Lithium, In Bloom and Heart Shaped Box. - DarkBoi-X

Oh, Kurt, Kurt, Kurt... - 3DG20

That sounds like something I would say about Drake, except I don't really think he's completely talentless. - allamassal

3 David Bowie on Lulu by Lou Reed and Metallica: "This is Lou’s greatest work. This is his masterpiece. Just wait, it will be like Berlin. It will take everyone a while to catch up." David Bowie on Lulu by Lou Reed and Metallica: David Robert Jones (January 8, 1947 - January 10, 2016) was an English singer born in London, the son of a fundraiser and a waitress. He is credited for his experimental and creative musical discography which has won praise and accolades for many critics and fans. ...read more.

I'm not bandwagoning but Lulu is literally awful - lovestarlist

I can understand why people hated Lulu. I see the album as a Avant-Garde metal album and isn't for everyone. To be honest with you, my opinion on the album has changed positively over the years. But it's nowhere near Lou Reed's "greatest work". Nothing can beat Berlin. - Mumbizz01

Metal fans are sure this is the worst Metallica album although it wasn't exactly a Metallica album - it was a Lou Reed album ft Metallica. So either metal fans have higher criteria for good music or David Bowie's criteria were too low. - Metal_Treasure

Well I'll say it's not his worst work... but the album this is up against is Metal Machine "Music" so... - christangrant

4 Dave Grohl: "Heavy Metal would not exist without Led Zeppelin, and if it did, it would suck." Dave Grohl: David Eric "Dave" Grohl is an American rock musician, multi-instrumentalist, singer, songwriter, producer and film director. He is best known as the former drummer of the hugely popular 90s grunge band Nirvana and the vocalist/guitarist for the alternative rock band Foo Fighters. He has sat behind the ...read more.

If he would have said something like "Hard rock wouldn't be what it is today without Led Zeppelin", then I would gladly accept his opinion as truth. - Gg2000

Has he ever heard of Deep Purple? - Userguy44

False because metal wasn't invented by Led Zeppelin and would exist without Led Zeppelin. - Metal_Treasure

So what? Some metal artists were influenced by Pink Floyd...jazz... - Metal_Treasure

5 Morrissey on The Ramones: "The Ramones have absolutely nothing to add that is of relevance or importance and should be rightly filed and forgotten." Morrissey on The Ramones: Steven Patrick Morrissey (born 22 May, 1959), known as Morrissey, is an English singer, songwriter and author, rose to prominence as the lead singer of The Smiths, an indie rock band - which was active from 1982 to 1987 . Since then, Morrissey has had a solo career making the top ten of the UK singles ...read more.

Ignoring this quote, Morrissey is the biggest idiot on the planet. Half of his opinions are simply his ranting. - Swellow

He said that in 1976 and his prediction proved wrong. - Metal_Treasure

It goes for Smiths' music LOL

Big mouth strikes again

6 Van Morrison on The Beatles: "The Beatles were peripheral. If you had more knowledge about music. It didn't really mean anything." Van Morrison on The Beatles: Sir George Ivan Morrison OBE is a Northern Irish singer, songwriter, instrumentalist and record producer. In 2016, he was knighted for services to the music industry and to tourism in Northern Ireland.

I think he has partly right, but as I listened to some of his songs I rather choose the Beatles than him.

I don't know...maybe he's partly right? But most people would disagree with Van Morrison. - Metal_Treasure

7 Frank Sinatra on Rock n Roll: " Rock n Roll: The Most Brutal, Ugly, Degenerate, Vicious Form of Expression"

At the time Rock n Roll was called "Satanic". - Metal_Treasure

And the interesing is, he said this about the '50s rock and roll, not about the rock music itself. How is that music brutal or vicious? LOL. Don't listen what an overrated jazz elitist said about one of the most important genres ever.

8 Dick Rowe: "The Beatles have no future in show business. We don't like your boys' sound. Groups are out. Four-piece groups with guitars, particularly, are finished."

Well, we still have Metallica, Megadeth, System of a Down, Trivium, Led Zep, Black Sabbath (their music is still alive), Black Label Society, Alice in Chains, Pearl Jam, Rage Against the Machine, Ozzy Osbourne, the list goes on and on and on. - MattAffterburner

Dick Rowe was a Decca Records executive and told this to the Beatles' manager in 1962. - Metal_Treasure

9 Rivers Cuomo on his own album Pinkerton: "It’s a hideous record… It was such a hugely painful mistake that happened in front of hundreds of thousands of people and continues to happen on a grander and grander scale and just won’t go away." Rivers Cuomo on his own album Pinkerton: Rivers Cuomo is an American musician and singer-songwriter. He is best known as the lead vocalist, lead guitarist and songwriter of the alternative rock band Weezer, with whom he has recorded eleven studio albums.

Pinkerton was initially panned when it first released and that caused the guy to just hate everything about it. After awhile the reception warmed up tremendously and he started to appreciate it again. Gotta say it must suck to put a lot of hard work into something only for it to be blasted initially. I understand why he'd disliked it so much at first. - cjWriter1997

Again it wasn't well received back in the day but it is a masterpiece

(Rivers Cuomo of Weezer)
I had no space but here is the 2nd half of the quote:
"It’s like getting really drunk at a party and spilling your guts in front of everyone and feeling incredibly great and cathartic about it, and then waking up the next morning and realizing what a complete fool you made of yourself."
Why was Cuomo (probably) wrong? Because the album is considered by many to be a masterpiece. - Metal_Treasure

10 David Lee Roth on Elvis Costello: "Music journalists like Elvis Costello because music journalists look like Elvis Costello." David Lee Roth on Elvis Costello: David Lee Roth is an American rock vocalist, songwriter, actor, author, and former radio personality.

Maybe journalists liked Elvis Costello because he was writing songs that didn't fall back on party and sex themes like his music did. I like Van Halen, but it's important to remember that they were a party band in those days. - Gg2000

Do journalists look like Elvis Costello? I don't know. Maybe. A little bit. Or not... - Metal_Treasure

The Contenders

11 Morrissey on Oasis: "They are very tame to me. God bless Noel, I’m sure he’ll always have a spot on ‘Bob’s Full House’, but I search for something with more bite and rage." Morrissey on Oasis: Steven Patrick Morrissey (born 22 May, 1959), known as Morrissey, is an English singer, songwriter and author, rose to prominence as the lead singer of The Smiths, an indie rock band - which was active from 1982 to 1987 . Since then, Morrissey has had a solo career making the top ten of the UK singles ...read more.

Yeah, the bros (Gallagher) are known for being very tame (sarcasm) - Metal_Treasure

12 Lil Xan on 2Pac: "2Pac is boring"
