The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís 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?

    Slayer is a must. And as lame as it may seem, I still love Iron Maiden.

    I always like the classics. 'Metal' knowadays just isn't the same.

    Pantera, metallica, AC/DC, Guns n roses, etc. Stuff like that.

    EDIT: I liked slipknot alot when I was younger too.

    Judas Priest, Helloween to name a few that has not been named.

    Recently I've discovered Sabaton, very good war-themed power metal.

    I'm not sure if they'd be considered Metal or Post-hardcore but Underoath, Senses Fail, and Funeral for a Friend.

    Metallica for me. Megadeth, on occasion... is Skid Row considered metal?

    LOL. I don't know if they're considered metal, but they are pretty heavy. Don't be mislead by their "I remember You" ballad. Their next album was a lot heavier.

    Love all the old skool Metal bands, got into it in '86.
    Lots of classic bands up to around '95.
    After that, it had to be a really good band to make a good impression.
    Love Suicidal Tendencies up to Suicidal For Life album.
    Anything after that turned into a project style like Infectious Groove.

    Favourite overall has to be Napalm Death.

    LOL No, Judas Priest isn't my cup of tea. I see where you're going with this, though.

    How can you not love a leatherdaddy like Halford?

    Honestly, seeing Priest outdoors during a raging thunderstorm was one of the best shows I've ever been to. That mother****er can scream his face off.

    LOL if he was a big muscle leatherdaddy, it might be different... but as he is, he doesn't inspire anything in me. His screaming and melodies don't do it for me, either. To me nothing beats Metallica (black album and prior), in terms of metal.
