Don't knock it. It takes a lot of effort to make the yellow and black attack look like that.
I had a student who unironically only wanted to learn songs by Stryper and other christarded spiritual hair metal bands from the late 80s. They were the thing in his heyday as a bible group-attending teenager; and he decided taking up guitar and growing a mustache were frugal and enriching midlife crisis options.
On an academic level, Stryper’s songs didn’t strike me as being any more embarrassing than most of the sunset strip glam bands whose songs I had to break down for high 50 year-olds in leather jackets that wouldn’t zip over their bellies. *Two weeks since last lesson* “Did you practice?” “Ah, man, you know what? I forgot all about that.”
Megadeth is terrible. Always has been. Easily the weakest of the "Big Four", which is saying something.
Yeah there are some cool solos and riffs in thier catalog, but even those are typically marred by mediocre-at-best tone and put in bore-fest of songs.
Don't get me started on MegaDave's "singing."
I've tried to dig it, but just can't.
Yeah that's pretty bad. I loved THWTD and thought Against the Law had some good stuff on it.
I'll give this one a miss...
Liking Stryper is the unpopular opinion lol
Nobody respects the Yellow N Black Attack.
I deeply hate Iron Maiden, I do not know exactly why, but every single song they did makes me sick.
But I like the X Factor ...
Maybe it’s because Bruce Dickinson sounds like he has rubber bands around his nut-sack...?
Eh... Blayze does not fit in with Iron Maiden at all.
Cinched nuts were quite the trend for about 30 years.
TFP’s, flammable hair, and nut-bands were the scene...Bruce really liked doubling down on the falsetto. Love him or hate him
For some reason, I want to hear a Maiden cover of the original Smurfs theme now.
Nooo!! Haha I love early megadeth. So much so I’ll say that early megadeth > early Metallica. *flame shield on*
I like Megadeth more than Metallica in general.
Anybody who actually likes mustaine's straining to take a shit singing needs to have their head checked.
Megadeth and Metallica both have some awesome riffage over the years, but Testament has been the most consistent of the big 4 by far imo.
in terms of singing: Chuck Billy>Hetfield>Mustaine
in terms of riffs: metallica> testament>anthrax>megadeth
in terms of solos: megadeth>metallica>testament
Basically I just daydream about Chuck Billy fronting with marty friedman and hetfield on guitars, and marco minneman or gene hoglan on drums (he's a fucking monster like portnoy).
I feel like the only reason Megadeth was even a thing to begin with was because Mustaine was so publicly booted from Metallica and most of their 'good' stuff has Marty on it which says a lot.
So much this. I get really shitty whenever I hear the term 'Big 4' because IMO Testament should be in there. Everyone always forgets about them.
Here's another one: I don't care for Marty Friedman's playing or tone or songwriting. An exceptionally talented player for sure, and by all accounts a really awesome person, but it does nothing for me in a musical context.
It's not even the shred thing, I love shred.
Yeah I don't really consider Slayer to be big 4. Yes they had some sick riffs but honestly, other than seasons in the abyss and reign in blood, slayer sucks balls. They're the least talented of the big 4 imo.
Personally, I agree they're the least talented but most listenable.
I personally prefer his stuff outside of Megadeth. It's just hilarious that his least interesting stuff which is his Megadeth work is the only thing that redeemed Shitsaine's band xD
