I’m not trying to make assumptions, but is it just me or do none of you guys like metal.  

Well, I like Black Sabbath quite a bit.  I even went to see them live back in February.  I also like a few songs by Dio, Metallica, and Judas Priest.  Other than that, not much of a metalhead. 

Grooving some cookie spaghetti since 1968.

So, here’s a list.  Some of these folks never actually had “hits,” so I just made them up.  Some had too many hits.  For my Beatles list I limited myself to just the singles that I had bought when they were released, so if it seems overly-skewed toward 1967 and forward, that’s because my first record ever was Penny Lane /Strawberry Fields Forever .  And if you count more than 10 here or there…sorry!  It’s my list!

Black Sabbath are the best and the first concert I remember going to (my mother says that she took me and my older brother with her to see The Beatles in 1966, but I don’t remember it). I went to see them live with my uncle in 1971 and it sounded even better than Paranoid, which I bought when it was new with some of my birthday money.

@BluemeanAl 

Some great lists there, although I would personally replace Baby You’re A Rich Man with Hello, Goodbye and Old Brown Shoe with The Ballad Of John And Yoko (or Come Together if you actually owned that single, trying to follow the only use singles you bought in 1970 or before rule), though everyone has their reasons. Great Idea about honorable mentions.

I don’t like loud music and people shouting which most i’ve heard sounded like.

I hate that type of metal too, as it sounds like cookie monster paying his bills while on the toilet. However, I think that if I explain some different types of metal, than you’ll realize that most of the metal you’ve heard is from after the good stuff came out.

Fist, there is the Classic/Traditional Heavy Metal of Black Sabbath and Led Zeppelin. Next, there is the British Wave with Judas Preist, Iron Maiden, Motorhead, Saxon, and Diamond Head, among others (this is when the term “Heavy Metal” started to be used (back in the day, we called bands like Sabbath either Rock or my father’s term, Satan Rock)). After that, there is the Power Metal of bands such as Dio, Manowar, and Scorpions. Also, who can forget the Glam/Hair/80’s Metal of Motley Cure, Def Leppard, and Van Halen. Then there’s the Thrash Metal of Metallica, Megadeth, and Slayer. Let’s not forget the Hard Rock of bands like AC/DC, Queen, and Deep Purple. Then there’s Grunge (some call this Metal’s suicide, but I call it “A prelude to Bad Metal”), which contains Nirvana, Alice In Chains , and Soundgarden, among others. The modern genres are Death Metal (Cannibal Corpse, Death), Nu Metal (Korn, Slipknot, Avenged Sevenfold), and Post Grunge (Nickelback, Foo Fighters (a mixture of Pop Punk and Post Grunge)).

I wanted a George song in there, so Old Brown Shoe was my go-to, one of my favorite Beatles B-sides that didn’t get much radio airplay.  I’d completely forgotten about The Ballad of John and Yoko (yeah, the A-side to Old Brown Shoe and it slipped my mind!), though, when I was compiling the list.  I’ve always preferred Baby to Hello, by a lot, so it got the nod.  And here’s where my memory breaks down further — while I have a copy of Come Together /Something today, I don’t remember if I did then.  I may have, probably did.  The sad truth is that my original Beatles 45s didn’t survive being stored at my parents’ house when I left for college — they all got incredibly warped.  So while I have managed to replace all of them and add quite a few others (including Come Together) in the intervening years, those originals plus the picture sleeves are gone, gone, gone.paul-mccartney

I feel ya, man. Even though me and my older brother (it’s complicated) still own all of our childhood albums (including a stickered butcher), I once had a stack of old magazines and comic books back in the mid 80’s and my wife burned them all because she thought it was garbage. I got my revenge my selling some of her jewelry for a pool table and a Centipede arcade cabinet.

“While I will admit to a certain cynicism, the fact is that I’m a naysayer and hatchet man in the fight against violence. I pride myself in taking a punch and I’ll gladly take another - because I choose to live my life in the company of Ghandi and King. My concerns are global. I reject absolutely revenge, aggression and retaliation. The foundation of such a method is love. I love you, Sheriff Truman.”
