a21schizoidman;1524677 said:actually its their first, dumbassand SRV is quite well known
Rockbandfan23467;1524704 said:No, Kill Em' All Came out in 1983, they will be inducted in 2009. 2009-1983 ___________26.SRV is no where near Metallica's status on popularity.
a21schizoidman;1524719 said:and where is he no where nearly as well known as Metallica? among the 10 people you know that you keep saying is the majority of all fans?
MronoC;1524726 said:Also, who the hell are the Dave Clark Five?
a21schizoidman;1524493 said:well, I wasn't necessarily aiming at you, considering there are many Pantera fans on the forums, but I can't see what's so great about them. I just see them as overrated, nothing wrong with all of you liking them, but where I'm from, all I've heard since middle school is how great Dimebag was, and he's no more special to me than Robby Krieger or Eric Clapton (both mediocre IMO)

Rockbandfan23467;1524847 said:No, among everyone. SRV is mostly known in the Blues-Rock Community, with much acclaim for his guitar abilities.Metallica had all of their albums after Puppets score in the top 10, and definitly are more known than SRV.Metallica are in the Legends of Rock book. SRV isn't.And just so I don't get accused:I LIKE BOTH ARTISTSI miss changing font size

instantdeath999;1524928 said:I do think RockBandFan is talking about overall awareness, and I do have to agree more people on the street would recognize Metallica over Stevie Ray Vaughan. This is not a good thing.
instantdeath999;1524599 said:This is my opinion mixed with simple analysis of the music. -Metallica usually have longer songs. While this seems trivial, one of the characteristic elements of Thrash metal is the length. Thrash would often extend the length of their songs, to fit in multiple time signatures, and to help escape mainstream cliche's.I've never heard of this. As far as I know, Megadeth, Anthrax, and especially Slayer have very short songs, all the time.- Metallica generally have much more distorted instruments, another huge characteristic of Thrash metal. I guess that counts...- Metallica usually contains harsher, deeper vocals, as compared to the much higher pitched vocal style of the early Dave Mustaine.That counts too?- Metallica usually have better written lyrics.That's debatable. Very debatable.- Metallica arguably recorded one of the first Thrash records, although much of it was thanks to Dave Mustaine.I'll give them that.- Metallica seems to change tempo's more frequently, although that is definitely up for debate.This is true, I'll agree. If you listen to Megadeth a lot, you notice that they slow down and speed up a lot in their songs, but it's usually the same tempo cut in half. One clear exception is Hanger 18, which just throws their old tempo completely out the window.Of course, I can say many things that Megadeth do better than Metallica.Same here

instantdeath999;1524721 said:I don't keep up with the hall of fame, anyway. I really can't say who's in and who isn't.
Xaris3514;1528455 said:The Sex Pistols summed up my opinion on the hall of fame quite nicely. I'm still baffled as to why neither Rush nor KISS have even been nominated despite both being eligible for years and both being very important to the genre. Hell, the final nail in the coffin was when Grandmaster Flash and Madonna were inducted before bands like KISS and Rush were even nominated.
Zeleii;1528529 said:It's a proven fact, Rolling Stone and the R&R HoF hates Progressive music... has Yes, Genesis, Kansas ever been nominated?
Xaris3514;1528568 said:Exactly my point. Bands like Rush, KISS, Genesis, Kansas, Yes, Journey, etc. are a hell of a lot more important than Grandmaster Flash and Madonna. Considering that Madonna and Grandmaster Flash aren't even rock artists, ANY rock band is more important than either of them. And I believe that Iron Maiden is a much more important band to heavy metal than Metallica no matter how popular Metallica is.
Zeleii;1528636 said:Black Sabbath, Iron Maiden and Judas Priest
Xaris3514;1528654 said:And yet Sabbath remains the only one of those three to be inducted.
