Les Claypool is regarded as one of the best bassists of all time for his slap-bass ability in notable songs like "My Name Is Mud", "The Toys ...read more.

I would say Les Claypool's aim was to be an unique/experimental artist. Not being a metal artist. Yeah, Larry was in Possessed. But that doesn't mean they have to apply the same thing here. - zxm

Primus has never claimed to be metal

Strange bastards. - Metalhead1997

Lame, NOT metal, on the same level as Marilyn Manson.

Yes, because the most underrated band in nu metal are a group of posers. This band is actually good. You just have to look for the better songs for example: Loco was a hit, but My Frustration, a nice little gem, was left out of the eye of the mainstream. Some other good songs are: Bradley, Tyler's Song, Fiend, Notion, Dreamtime, and Pig. - ThatoneMetalhead

Korn wannabes. "Loco" is a TERRIBLE song. - Metalhead1997

Eddie Van Halen is guitar god

What is God's holy name are you blathering about?

How is it possible to mess up this bad! I'm serious. Van Halen is true metal

Eddie Van Halen was a self-taught guitarist. His primary target was experimenting with guitar. I don't think he focused much on being metal or not metal. At least not in the 70s. - zxm

77 Arch Enemy Arch Enemy Arch Enemy is a Swedish melodic death metal band, originally a supergroup, from Halmstad, formed in 1996. Its members were in bands such as Carcass, Armageddon, Carnage, Mercyful Fate, Spiritual Beggars, and Eucharist.

Yeah, because Arch Enemy aren't metal. I'd wager that many people that listen to metal would probably find their stuff too heavy. Go listen to some of their songs like Nemesis, Vultures or My Apocalypse and then tell me it isn't metal. - Porcupine
