As I get older I just turn into a miserable old fart :
"That's not REAL metal, it's nowhere near as good as *insert 80's/90's band of choice here*"
I think what I class as "Metal" these days is now known as "Classic Rock"!

Very few new bands lift my skirt these days, they really are just churning out shite, just downtuned further, shouted gruffer, more swearing. It's still the old favourites who are producing the quality material, when they pack up/die, then we will be in trouble!

That said, I'm always open to conversion to these new-fangled kiddy bands. Go on, impress me........

If I make it to be 55, I'll still love Metal
In my opinion...I think most metal bands write tunes more about the truth, and the world around us...other than these country and pop bands that only write about love and crap

Pretty awesome list, except I'm definitely NOT a fan of Dimmu

Here are some of my favorites

Lord Gore
Grand Belial's Key
Blood Freak
Deathspell Omega

and a ton more Black Metal and Thrash/Death Metal

Love metal, goth, industrial, punk, electronica...I'm sick of classic rock..I've been listening to it for EVER.

FM Radio has sucked since like..oh 1982, and Rob Halford has the best rock voice..just my opinion.

Never too old for good keeps you young. The day I start listening to Anne Murray, please put me out of my misery.

However I also like some classical and celtic stuff, go figure

I second Symphony X! It's sad a band that talented had to leave the country at first to get popular.

Also if you're looking for good metal, try the first two Fates Warning albums. The specter within and awaken the guardian are two of the most underrated albums ever, imo.

my 86 yr old aunty likes rush since i introduced her to them. she likes to hear me sing, so if i tell her about some song then sing it, she'll like that song. she likes rush because now she understands why i appreciate their skills.

The larger my Age number gets (it's at 40 right now hehehe) the heavier/faster/more "evil" the music has been getting. Not to say that I'm evil But right from my first "Kiss" Cassette (remember them? Kiss and cassettes?) through my first of many Maiden shows to now, it will never die

I'll list some bands too, because others have... Man Must Die, Skinless and Deicide come to mind ;-)
