The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Its no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    That's sad. No Megadeth, Metallica, Anthrax, Testament, Venom, Vader, Death, Sadus, Cannibal Corpse, or most of the others that laid the groundwork.

    But god dammit, Aerosmith is there!

    Slayer at 11 and Maiden at 10? Give me a break! Aerosmith is the opposite of metal.

    As bad as this is, I really expected worse. And I didn't expect Mercyful Fate at all. I would've liked to see Testament, Exodus, At the Gates, and a number of others on there, but what can you do.

    ACDC is probably the worst band I've ever heard.

    Metallica is at number six bro, but I don't think they should be behind freakin AC/DC of all people, that's just not right.

    But seriously, WTF is Aerosmith doin there??

    And am I the only one that thinks Led Zepplin shouldn't be on that list? They're more southern rock than metal.

    So they are. I skimmed it and missed it.

    Zeppelin has to be there. There are two major schools of thought on metal history, those who believe it started with Sabbath and those who believe it started with Zeppelin. I'm in the Sabbath-as-genesis camp but believe Led Zeppelin definitely added some strong influences to bands like Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, and the rest of what would become the NWOBHM.

    Southern rock though? Can you really be southern rock if you're British?

    Perhaps, I'm not really sure. I guess that danger comes in making a judgement on a band I dont' know a lot about. That's just my personal opinion. Although I know they did have a lot of influence on future music.

    I'm with you though, that it's a "Sabbath-as-genesis," and that's how it should be.

    Anyone that's interested should check out a book called Sound Of The Beast by Ian Christe and a documentary by Sam Dunn called Metal: A Headbanger's Journey. Louder Than Life is a good documentary as well but Dunn's is still way more informative. I don't entirely agree with his metal genealogy but the film is still really interesting overall.

    It's a decent list given the parameters the author obviously used to make the picks, and the assumed original meaning of the term "heavy metal". Certainly some shouldn't be there if based on the last 20 years, but taking into account the entire history of each band, it's not a bad list. And to the dude that says AC/DC is the worst band he's ever heard.....that says tons about your tastes. Keep listening to the Spice Girls and Tim McGraw.....it probably won't kill you.

    I consider my favorite band, Van Halen, to be "Hard Rock" at the most, but not "Metal". I don't think they should be on the list.

    Maybe "Light Up The Sky" could be considered Metal, but heh...that's one tune. Even "DOA" I consider to be hard rock. Whatever.
