Metallica, ACDC, Led Zeplin?
Outaqdted dull pish in my book. Have you ever seen spinal tap? every metal band should have given up after that.
I used to go to see all these type of bands in the 70s – it was acceptable then but music and the world has moved on unless you are German!

I was a massive Metallica fan until after Master Of Puppets. They’re too mainstream metal for me now. Still pull out a few ace tunes though.
ACDC – absolute garbage IMHO. Formulaic rock for your great-grandad.
Led Zep – their earlier stuff is still stunning. Their influence is still so obvious on many bands.Posted 8 years agoCountZeroMember
Like Metallica a lot, seen them two or three times, left sweaty and grinning each time. Saw Zeppellin once on the Physical Grafitti tour. Awesome live band, and when they launched into Kashmire and Trampled Under Foot I thought my head would explode. Not keen on many of the New Wave of British Heavy Metal, they really were what Spinal Tap were all about. Judas Priest, Saxon? Oh, pleasePosted 8 years agojondMember
>Can’t distinguish one band from another TBH
Well, if you don’t like it, you ain’t gonna listen to it enough to make that distinction, are you ?
>Judas Priest, Saxon? Oh, please
Get a grip. Judas Priest laid the foundations for a lot of the metal that followed. As for them being ‘NWOBHM’ they ain’t – been around since the 70’s. Whereas Saxon *are* NWOBHM…Posted 8 years ago
Dr Dollitle -I do enjoy old music – even old rock. Listening to some 70s reggae right now.
However even tho I loved metal back in the 70s I find it virtually unlistenable now – it just has not stood the test of time – even classics from back then – let alone the bands that are still making this formulaic music now.
Metal is about the only type of music other than Rap and its derivatives that I don’t likePosted 8 years agoReluctantMember
LedZep are one of my pet hates! Loathe them with a passion along with lots of other metally stuff from that era. Fine in the 70, utter **** now. AcDc – i can still listen to Bon Scott era, but feel they should have quit after he died. Never really listened to Metalical, but the little i’ve heard sounds ok.Posted 8 years ago
There are bands from that era i still like…Black Sabbath still sound amazing, Hawkwind’s noisy rythems still do it for me, Motorhead joyous din still makes me chuckle. And how can you hear Judas Priest’s “Breakin the law” without laughing out loud at the silliness of it all!
I’ve probably got odd and contradictory opinions on this stuff… each to their own, innit.
Regarding Led Zep, I had zero time for them up until about four years ago. Now I love them. I have no idea why, but perhaps it was just me getting over all the “baggage” of 80’s punk rock ideology or something.
Anyway, they are great. I am right and the naysayers are wrong.Posted 8 years agoJunkyardMember

I never liked Led Zep even back in the day One or two tracks sound OKish now but very little of that stuff does IMO – pretentious twaddle played badly and too loud
I think you have had few knocks to the head helmetless TJPosted 8 years ago
They are the very definition of Rock to not like them is to not like /appreciate music IMHO.
A little dated for sure (and pretentious to be fair)but still yoofs today listening to them so they must have struck a chord (btump tish).

I think you will find thats Clapton
A little dated for sure (and pretentious to be fair)
My point exactly – dated and pretentious. glad we agree
I just ain’t stuck in some strange 70s time warp – I grew up a bit. Honest!
I got a load of rock – clapton, cream, Hendrix, Stones,
How many of you metal fans have mullets? go on – own up now
Now anyone going to defend that Rush Lyric?Posted 8 years agonumber2Member
Loved Zep back in the day and still do now. Only difference is that then I went for the heavier stuff like Black Dog etc and flicked the needle on the slower stuff. Now things have changed a little and I prefer the stuff I used to miss out, Misty Mountain Hop, When the levy Breaks etc.
Must be gettin old eh?
Sabbath, Hawkwind and Floyd still doin’ it for me tho’.
Some good tribute bands around too that are worth a look!Posted 8 years ago
Cinnamen girl – I was. Saw Black Sabbath, hawkwind, rush, thinlizzy, Tangerine Dream, deep purple, etc etc at the old but not forgotten Glasgow Apollo in 1975-77. thing is the world has moved on since then. Would you ride 70s bikes or drive 70s cars – to say nothing of the haircuts and clothes 🙂

TJ – I have to disagree! They set the foundations, the same way as the old blues players from way back when. Why does Clapton have Robert Johnson as his hero?
Perhaps blues music can stand the test of time – there are so many new guys that can really play ie Joe Bonamassa, Aynsley Lister. I even saw B B King play on his 80th birthday concert tour.Posted 8 years ago
