Have you ever noticed anyone who has emailed me about something that contradicts one of my arguments and has been right? I haven’t. Anyone who goes against my opinion is usually not very intelligent.
An example is last week when I had an amazingly long and pointless back and forth with some loser 13 year old on Facebook because he was being an annoying fuck who didn’t know when to shut his fucking face.
Also in music: I hate when I say something against someone’s taste in music, and they say that their band is better because they’re more ‘awesome’. That isn’t a way to measure the pure ability of a band, idiot.
Let’s do this right now: AC/DC, Metallica, Megadeth and Led Zeppelin.
AC/DC is acclaimed by most of my friends as being the best, because of Angus Young, now no doubt he’s a talented guitarist, but he can’t just be amazing because someone called him ‘awesome’. You have to have backing, I mean, it’s not like he started a revolution of really much of anything, every band of his time played the same shit. AC/DC is a great band, but they’re quite old now, and I totally respect that they’re still at least trying to keep going, but you need to stop while you’re still on top.
Metallica: Just like Slayer, they are far too over-rated, I didn’t like their two latest albums for obvious reasons.
- St. Anger because it was absolute shit
- Death Magnetic because they tried too hard
And people are always telling me “Oh well that’s your opinion”, or “Yeah but they started thrash metal”.
- Of course it’s my opinion, and my opinion owns all, I don’t care what you say, I fucking rule.
- I know they started thrash metal, then lots of other people continued it, and still do it, Metallica kind of fucked themselves over later
Megadeth is on the top of my list for favorite bands. Why? Because Dave Mustaine was hardcore, if it were anyone else doing the stuff he did, they would’ve died twice over. Without him, there wouldn’t be a Metallica or Cliff Burton for that matter, or even a spider chord, or even Kill Em All (Metallica’s debut album). He contributed a bunch to the world of metal. And Megadeth had/has one of the most talented guitarists out there, Chris Broderick, and Megadeth is always coming out with new and fresh songs. The only thing I don’t like about Dave is that he’s hardcore Christian or something, but as long as he plays some of the greatest music out there, I don’t give a moose’s last two shits what he his.
Now I put Led Zeppelin simply because without them and some other very influential bands, there wouldn’t be the music scene we see today, and people would disagree with that, but without Led Zeppelin and others, there wouldn’t be any of the above bands listed. Period.
And remember, if you don’t like it, go fall in a hole and shoot yourself.
