    That list demonstrates why Kerrang is a magazine for retards. They did get about 1/2 of it right, IMO, so maybe I'm half-retarded:erk:

    Fugazi has been pretty darn influencial on a lot of bands actually... not in metal, but rock/indy/etc.

    .

    I'm not really sure that they are worthy of the particular spot that kerrang gives them on their list...but on the other hand a lot of the list is crap and kerrang generally has no idea what it is talking about. In either case, I think that Fugazi does have a place on a list like this, given the time period of the list, and I enjoy their music from time to time.

    To be perfectly honest, I can't fault the list.

    If it'd be titled "25 most important bands to contemporary music", I'd say they hit the nail on the head, because that's what it is.

    Though it's a given that, either way, Black Sabbath probably belong on there.

    Sabbath's more important stuff was released before '81, though, which explains why they've left it out.

    >>>8 - Faith No More - Good band but no.


    Bah - they are a great creative metal band, and they definitely belong in there. Not only did they attract a LOT of people to metal...to me, they showed metalheads and bands new directions the music could be taken, instead of pure speed or death.

    Very essential band imo.

    lol - way to contribute there.

    "I'm not going to argue because Maiden was never at the level GnR was, so I'll just resort to name calling"

    I like Maiden, and they have done a lot for metal, and have a lot of anthems...but never did they come close to GnR's appeal when Appetite for Destruction came out.

    And actually, the more I think about it...that albumn was heavier in terms of feeling than anything Maiden put out too. lol.

    $50 bucks says you weren't even listening to metal/hard rock in 1986? Of course you wouldn't get the impact and popularity of GnR if you're some metal newbie.

    >>>come again?

    Dude, don't even argue the fact Faith no More isn't a metal band. They had a lot of different sounds...a LOT...rap...jazz...everything thrown in a blender, but they still were definitely metal. Unless you want to start labeling songs instead of artists.

    The guitars, the riffs... the vocals...yeah, I would call them metal over all, but I can see why some people wouldn't. I'm trying to think of other bands who broke the metal mold like they did.

    Sacred Reich did a good song about being so judgemental on American Way about what metal is. Reminded me of faith no more a bit.

    Well there's no way to prove your opinion, is there? I definitely disagree.

    They played the same role as Korn or Slipknot did. They used aggressive sounds to appeal to kids of mainstream music and rap...the next logical step after Slipknot and Korn was to go heavier.

    Same with GnR. ALL the people who liked Cinderella, Poison, Motley Crue, Tesla, Quiet Riot, etc etc (and there were a LOT bro)...now looked to GnR. From there, metallica (they toured together)...and so on.

    Asides from Run to the Hills...what are some other maiden songs that non-metal listeners would hear and follow into that genre? (If I'm off, lemme know...but I can't think of any maiden songs that had near the popularity of GnR songs)

    as this is now the METAL forum, and we now have a 25 METAL bands thread, can this offensive list now be removed from my sight?

    Yeah, I know, but they still took a fluffy metal/rock scene, and gave it attitude when metal wasn't nearly as popular back then. I mean...it's never been popular, but it was pretty underground back then.
