    Default Van Halen #4 best heavy metal band...

    According to some dude on Yahoo! (Rob O'connor)

    4) Van Halen: Some metallists say these guys aren't metal because they like girls and to party and they cover the Kinks, Roy Orbison and Motown. But have you heard Eddie's tone? He re-taught the guitar for an entire decade and while they lose points for employing Sammy Hagar (whose band Montrose, you'll note, is absent from this list), they did once bring us that ultimate, premium, all natural ham of hams, the great David Lee Roth.

    Top Ten:
    1) Black Sabbath
    2) Led Zeppelin
    3) AC/DC
    4) Van Halen
    5) Jimi Hendrix Experience
    6) Metallica
    7) Judas Priest
    8) Aerosmith
    9) Motorhead
    10) Iron Maiden

    Heck, there's only three metal bands on that list, and VH sure isn't one of them.
    I swear, it's like I'm playin' cards with my brother's kids or somethin'. You nerve-wrackin' sons-a-bitches.

    Instant disqualification from any fan or critic who classifies VH as metal. Duh.

    Zeppelin and AC/DC too, for that matter.

    Stupid list.

    I wonder if this guy posts here.

    He can't praise the DLR era without taking shots at the Sammy era.

    Can't just say something nice about the ENTIRE history of VH without taking a shot. God the media is sad.

    Default The term Heavy Metal has always been silly

    Whenever lists like this come about, I like to pull out my 1974 Warner Bros. Compilation : Heavy Metal - 24 Electrifying Performances

    Black Sabbath
    MC 5
    Alice Cooper
    Jimi Hendrix
    Deep Purple
    Led Zeppelin

    Heavy Metal? eh! debatable for 1974.

    But you just have to love the rest of the HEAVY bands on the record.

    The James Gang
    T. Rex
    The J. Geils Band
    Faces
    Golden Earring
    Foghat
    Uriah Heep

    Then there are the HEAVIEST of the HEAVY!

    Dr. John
    Buffalo Springfield
    The Doors
    The Allman Brothers Band
    Delaney & Bonnie
    Van Morrison
    Eagles
    Yes
    Grateful Dead
    War
    Blues Image

    Black Sabbath is the only band ever (IMO) that the term Heavy Metal can be applied to. everything else after is a hybrid.

    Van Halen has never been heavy metal.

    So that list is gay.
    [B]
    Eddie Van Halen in 2012:

    "ESQ: What are you going to do with all the material that you wrote with Sammy Hagar?

    EVH: Oh, I hadn't thought about that. That's some great music. They're just on vacation, maybe. They're off to college and they're going their own way. Who knows?"
