    What are your guilty pleasures? Mine are mostly bands I got into when I was much younger and just stuck with me to one degree or another.

    Black Label Society
    Godsmack (first album only)
    Powerman 5000 (Tonight The Stars Revolt in particular)
    Rammstein
    System of a Down (first album only)

    I own Godsmack's s/t and Awake. I do not listen to them, though. Edguy - Rocket Ride is a bit of a guilty pleasure. Later Pantera (especially RtS). All Out War - Assassins in the House of God (because I know that as a metalhead I'm not supposed to like hardcore, but fuck you all). Recent Elvenking (The Scythe, Winter Wake).

    There really is no reason to be as long as its Alaska and onward. They've come really far from that shit they started out with. I used to hate them.

    As far as Godsmack goes arent they more hard rock? But regardless I like their first three albums, haven't really heard anything worthwhile they released after that. And as I've said before, I love System of a Down, they are great especially when you're high. Rammstein's first few releases were pretty awesome, I especially loved Mutter, they were one of my favs when I was first getting into metal.

    Nothing I feel guilty about, but here are some that are generally frowned upon by extreme metal fans:

    System of a Down
    Smashing Pumpkins
    Guns 'n' Roses
    Cradle of Filth
    Second Coming
    Days of the New (sort of...not all their stuff is good)
    Candlebox
    Mother Love Bone
    Korn (first 2 and a half albums)
    Mudvayne
    Taproot
    Chevelle
    Faster Pussycat
    Skid Row
    Blind Melon
    The Cruxshadows
    The Cure
    Peter Murphy
    Jeff Buckley
    Radiohead
    Journey
    Ozzy (I don't know how much this forum likes him, actually)
    Lamb of God's first couple
    Mad Season (If you don't know who this is, you need too immediately. NOW!)
    Pearl Jam
    The Police
    Wham!
    The Sisters of Mercy
    Simon and Garfunkel
    Ugly Kid Joe
    Tool

    And a good majority listed here I enjoy much more than any extreme metal band.

    I did a search prior to posting this, and found nothing but the one from the Opeth forum several months back.

    There's nothing in metal that I feel guilty about listening to.
    However I do notice that a lot of the bands posted in this thread aren't even metal but more so alternative rock of sorts.

    Pantera definitely gets some spins now and then, and Korn's first album like divine torture said..it was good IMO, not too many bands with bagpipe sections mixed in with metal!

    Oh and this one is sure to upset people - Gojira! Now before you all throw a shit-fit, I mainly listen to them because they are one of the most fun bands to drum to!

    You're a noob, but you're right. I didn't even think about that.

    I guess out of my list, the two that fit would be:
    Cradle of Filth
    Mudvayne

    Also: In Flames entire discography.

    I've listened to 'Three Dollar Bill Y'all' a few times myself, to be honest.

    I still enjoy Pantera quite a bit, but thats about it.

    As for non-metal, Weezer, Tears For Fears, Duran Duran etc
