    The new issue of "SPIN" is out, and it's dedicated to the heavy metal genre.
    It has Axl on the cover, and it's called "THE METAL ISSUE".

    On pg. 80 is their list of the "40 Greatest Metal Albums of All Time", and
    VH's self-titled debut ranks in at #6, sandwiched between AC/DC's "Back in
    Black" and Zeppelin's '69 self-titled debut.

    "1984" falls in at #25, sandwiched between Iron Maiden's "The Number of The
    Beast" and Ozzy's "Blizzard of Ozz".

    DLR's "Eat 'em And Smile" is filed in at #32, between Deep Purple's "Machine
    Head" and Danzig's "Danzig II: Lucifuge".

    Sammy and Ed also get honorable mentions in their "Magick Moments in
    Metal"timeline:

    "1978": The Dawn of Shreditude. With the release of Van Halen's self0titled
    debut album, Eddie Van Halen redifines rock guitar as the domain of of the
    "technical supergenius", introducing
    tricks that millions of would-be guitar gods would slave to master, e.g. the
    "finger tapping " technique on "Eruption".

    "1985: Sammy Hagar joins/destroys Van Halen."

    And, under "Lexicon of the Lost", their glossary for metal slang, "Van
    Hagar" is termed as "(vulgar), disparaging term for post-David Lee Roth Van
    Halen."
    "Think of how stupid the average person is, and realize half of them are stupider than that."

    "This is a lttle prayer dedicated to the separation of church and state. I guess if they are going to force those kids to pray in schools they might as well have a nice prayer like this: Our Father who art in heaven, and to the republic for which it stands, thy kingdom come, one nation indivisible as in heaven, give us this day as we forgive those who so proudly we hail. Crown thy good into temptation but deliver us from the twilight's last gleaming. Amen and Awomen. ."

    "I think it's the duty of the comedian to find out where the line is drawn and cross it deliberately."

    -George Carlin 1937 - 2008

    It's no surprise that 'Van Halen' and '1984' get props for all-time great rock albums. Usually, every mag I've seen lists those two.

    SPIN sucks.They have the picture of Eddie on the inside cover reversed. It's Eddie Van Halen not Jimi Hendrix. They also have Soundgarden's Badmotorfinger listed as one of the top Metal albums but it has a picture of the cover for Superunknown. They also reference the movie "This is Spinal Tap" referencing songs like "Sex Farm" and "Break Like The Wind". "Break Like The Wind" wasn't even in that movie.

    Spin= Dumbasses.
