    Why does this metalcore trend continue onwards? The bands all sound the same and pretty much try to mimic the Gothenburg sound. I mean, it's a good thing to draw inspiration from but, stop trying to sounds like In Flames already!

    Too bad Megadeth wins on all respects. Old Metallica is still good, but Megadeth still stomps them.
    Not all respects. I can think of many things Metallica do better than Megadeth. Of course, the reverse is true also.

    i think that metalcore, along with hardcore punk and screamo (all three being genres i previously pronounced dead), still display potential to be awesome underground genres of music (complete with innovative and exciting bands) again...

    bands like steel nation, cursed, and the saddest landscape all display enough hope for me to forget about all of the crap that the major labels are pushing.

    I don't know if I can full on agree with this, but I've been listening to a lot of shoegaze lately and I've been liking it a lot.

    Nursery Cryme is the best Genesis album.
    I prefer Selling England by the Pound but Musical Box and the return of the (etc.) are very good songs.

    If I had to choose a MAJOR Sub-genre of Rock... Metal would easily win.

    Mastodon is a genre now?

    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)

    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.

    - Metallica generally have much more distorted instruments, another huge characteristic of Thrash metal.

    - Metallica usually contains harsher, deeper vocals, as compared to the much higher pitched vocal style of the early Dave Mustaine.

    - Metallica usually have better written lyrics.

    - Metallica arguably recorded one of the first Thrash records, although much of it was thanks to Dave Mustaine.

    - Metallica seems to change tempo's more frequently, although that is definitely up for debate.

    Of course, I can say many things that Megadeth do better than Metallica.

    It's actually Metallica's second year of eligibility.

    Plus Metallica are more famous and well known than SRV.

    The Hall just needs new management.

    Agreed on Robby Krieger, although I really do like Clapton.

    No, Kill Em' All Came out in 1983, they will be inducted in 2009.

    SRV's first album was Texas Flood, released in 1983, and it is his first year of eligibility,

    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?

    I thought they were inducted earlier this year -_-

    I don't keep up with the hall of fame, anyway. I really can't say who's in and who isn't.

    I imagine he's going off of the Black album's sales.

    The first year of eligibility for a band or artist is 25 years after the release of their debut album, Metallica's "Kill 'em All" was released in 1983 (the same year as SRV's Texas Flood), making 2008 (25 years later) their first year of eligibility. Also, SRV is very well known, and one would think that the fact that he's passed would influence the nomination, but apparently a new album release outweighs a loss of life.

    Also, who the hell are the Dave Clark Five?

    but they weren't eligible for nomination for the 2008 induction, which took place in 2007.

    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 ARTISTS

    I miss changing font size :(
