    My high school English teacher actually played it for us. Pretty cool day. I tried to convince her to let me have the copy of the CD I think. She refused

    70s era bands initially wanted to be blues bands. Zepplin and Sabbath sound like very electrified blues; howsoever, Sabbath going into demonic territory leads to the heaviness.

    80s Metal, well this is the era of arena rock, so you can put Maiden and Crue, Priest and Poison in a sentence together. End of the decade it was all over commercialized crap with far too many gimmicks. Long hair and dressing like chicks comes to mind. The Villiage People inspired Leather that Rob from Priest rocked in his British Steel days.

    Now Death Metal...won't even touch it. People getting sacrificed and pig heads on spits ain't my idea of an awesome show.

    My metalhead high school friends include 3 lawyers, two doctors and a VP at Microsoft. I built the networking framework and datacenters for half of the electronic medical record systems in Canada (literally - no joke). Only one of my buds really didn't knock it out of the park and he's still running a large business.

    I think we all turned out fine considering some of the jock ....heads are still working in the local mall. :)
