    I thought it was Paul Di'Anno, but it turns out he was with The Kinks.

    Patti Smith's 1959 collaboration with Glenn Danzig, entitled The Skulls of Rock and Roll African Americans, is credited with pioneering folk metal.

    GG Allin would often defecate onstage.

    Btw guys, I am really curious. Could you explain me the difference between 'vow', 'oath', and 'promise'? The aspiring Pole thanks you in advance.

    A vow and an oath are just more personally important versions of a promise.

    What about 'pledge' and 'swear' then?

    Hell Awaits was originally a Christmas record, as the rare bootleg scrap of lyrics, "With the High Santa awaiting, candy cane in hand, spilling the pure cranberry sauce" proves, but was turned into the Satanic glam metal opus we know today after Hanneman decided to prove to his mom that it, quote, "wasn't a phase."

    A pledge or swearing can be the same, just a personally important promise but the former also has a legal definition iirc.

    Promises are for acquaintances and friends. Vows are for spouses. Oaths are for Satan.

    What about a person I apologise to in a formal letter? I wrote something like this 'I candidly vow not to let this happen again'.

    Yeah but we, the non-natives, are forced to check out everything in order not to be mocked :p

    I'm not saying that's bad. It's just that we don't really think about which word to use a lot of the time. They are interchanged frequently though.

    Metallica's Kill 'Em All gets better with age.

    Once upon a time I didn't care for it, but I'd probably place it as their #3 after Puppets and Black. AJFA has done the opposite- was my favorite but gets stale with age. RTL has some of Metallica's best songs (Creeping Death!), but it has a couple filler tracks that drag it down.
