    The Beatles is full of classics Metallica will be full of extreme metal songs
    Metallica has never been anything close to extreme metal. Extreme metal is stuff like death and black metal.

    That's definitely debatable. It can actually be argued that Thrash metal was the first sub-genre of Extreme metal. Though it would definitely be the least "extreme" sub-genre, with the possible exception of power metal.

    That's true for the harder thrash songs, but I wouldn't consider anything by Metallica, especially stuff like the Black Album and Load/Reload, to be extreme metal.

    But those aren't Thrash.

    But he wasn't referring to thrash, just Metallica.

    Of course, nothing after the Black album can be considered extreme metal. The whole definition of extreme metal is pretty static anyway, so it's debatable.

    For example, I wouldn't hesitate to call Kill em' All extreme metal, since it is one of the first thrash albums, and I believe the first in America, though I could be and probably am wrong.

    I don't think I've heard Power Metal described as an extreme metal sub-genre. You might be thinking of Doom.

    I've heard every Metal subgenre but Hair and Traditional as Extreme.

    I'm no expert, but I've always been under the impression the main sub-genres of extreme metal are Thrash, Death, and Black, with Power and Doom being debatable.

    Extreme Metal really isn't a genre, it's just used by ridicilous people. Every person I've talked to who has knowledge doesn't use the term.

    Doom is definitely debatable, but you could draw connections between Doom and the other extreme sub-genres. Power, at least to me, was on the other end of the spectrum and had more in common with Traditional Heavy and NWOBHM.

    Of course, extreme metal is a term, not genre... similar to classic rock or southern rock.

    Power is just traditional heavy metal taken to the next level.

    Heavy Metal part 3, ergo.

    I'll accept this definition.

    EDIT: The second wave of Black Metal has little in common with Metal.

    There are two many subgeneres of genres, that in their own right, are subgenres.

    The Beatles aren't that great.
    Megadeth is better than Metallica.
    People who automatically don't like bands just because of their genre/ Last.Fm tags should be castrated.
    Dio is waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay better than Ozzy.
    Di'Anno was Maiden's best singer.

    What? The first Guitar Hero forum was probably the best ever. Best members, bet mods (does Cinder still work here?), best threads, best posts. Makes me teary-eyed just thinking about it. The only reason I go to the new GH forum is to troll. Damn, I miss Diego and DimeTime.

    Telling me that I have bad grammar, while using the word "brah" and "kthxbai" in following posts. But I guess that's hypocrisy (even though the two are hand-in-hand)

    Yeah, it must've been too good for the moderators who were driven bonkers and left.

    True, acting childish would be intertwined with stupid. But I missed him saying "brah" or "kthxbai" or the grammar statement.
