    Who do you like better Extreme or Metallica? I like Extreme better. I think Metallica is overated and Extreme is underated.

    Vocals: Gary Cherone vs James Hetfield,
    GARY'S A WAAAY BETTER SINGER!!! Even Nuno can sing better than Hetfield.

    Guitars: Nuno vs. Kirk Hammett/Hetfield,
    Nuno is better than both of them combined.

    Bass: Pat Badger vs. Jason Newstead,
    I like Badger better.

    Drums: Paul Geary vs. Lars Ulrich,
    I have to admit Lars is better.

    Harmonies: Extreme vs. Metallica,
    Metallica's harmonies are awful!
    Extreme has great harmonies.

    Extreme wins 4-1. Extreme is a better band!!!

    You can't really compare them. Extreme is funky metal and Metallica are the kings of metal. I also would not have compared Paul Geary to Lars because Lars is more like Extreme's second drummer Mike Mangini who is on tour with Stevie Vai. I am a very big Extreme fan though....in fact,I am listening to "Cupids Dead"

    Metallica, but only because I'm more familiar with them. I did check out some pretty cool Extreme stuff a while back, and was impressed. Gary fits much better in Extreme than VH.

    Gotta say Metallica, no contest. If Extreme is so much better, where are they now?

    I'm definately thinking about getting all those Extreme albums that I missed along the way. For now though, I have to go with Metallica on this one. Not a bash of Extreme, I'm just much more familiar with Metallica.

    uh, i'd have to say metallica because i'm more familiar with them. however, i have a beef with yankee rose saying that nuno is a better player than kirk hammet. i haven't heard very much of nuno's playing, but kirk hammet is amazing. this of course is old metallica from the 80's. i listened to "one" yesterday from and justice for all, and i don't think anyone can say kirk hammet doesn't have talent, that solo kicks ass. i can't comare him to nuno, but he's pretty damn good!!!

    Kirk needs lessons from Nuno. Nuno kicks his ass. Gary can sing with Extreme,James can't sing period. Newstead is pretty cool and Lars just fucking rocks(or used to).Metallica of the 90's is worthless crap but Metallica of the 80's is awesome.I'll still give the nod to Extreme.

    No contest at all. Metallica absolutely rocks hard for me. Kind of different music to compare though. By the way, just fyi, I saw Metallica in Japan and the tickets were mis-spelled as MEATLICKA! Thats a wierd place.

    Laner- Kirk Hammet could not even be Nuno's guitar tech! Nuno could take James and Kirk in every way possible with the guitar. In fact, Nuno can even sing better then James too. Kirk is not in Nuno's league!

    I agree that Gary is better then James, Pat is better then Jason, and Lars better then Paul. If you were adding up the score by each individual musician, Extreme would certainly win . . .but there is something a lot more then that!

    INNOVATION! Metallica created their own sound and their own cult following without the success of video and singles. They paved the way for a new brand of Rock music just like Van Halen did nearly a decade before them. The thing with Extreme was they were not innovative really. They were a mutation of Van Halen's sound and Queen's harmonies, rolled in to the hair band genre. I think that is what separated their staying power and commercial success from Metallica's.

    I didn't like Gary in VH, but ANYTHING is better than hearing former speed metaller hetfield sing sappy country ballads.

    Metallica Are waaayyy overrated. Iron Maiden are THE definite Metal Act of the eighties, NO CONTEST. Anybody who disagree should first give a listen to their rocking new song, The Wicker Man.

    Gee what's with all the Metallica bashing all of a sudden? Geez, from 1983-1990 they were an innovative, tight, incredible band that basically invented "thrash metal." Don't take that away from them. I never liked Iron Maiden in the 80's, I kinda thought they were silly, I was one of the few metalheads I guess who didn't like 'em. The funny thing is that my band does a cover of Maiden's "Flight Of Icarus" and I've only heard the song twice in my entire life. I don' t even know what the solo sounds like, so I just wing it everytime.
