This is a fun list that mirrors why I don't like this kind of "metal" (Imo it just barely can pass as rock)
They even nailed the number one spot with the perfect representation of how bad it was biggrin.gif
Ofc they made a few mistakes but overall it's spot on tongue.gif

Theres definatly some bad ones on there but also some classics, not sure Maidens - Bring your daughter to the slaughter should have a place, but .. each to their own biggrin.gif

Awesome song! biggrin.gif

Three little pigs by Green Jello
haha theres a claymation video for this on youtube! its super awsome biggrin.gif
The Uncreator
This is just a bad list, I remember seeing this on TV, and thinking the same thing, Can't understand any motives behind it. Just think of the songs on there if VH1 knew about Death, Black, Folk, Power, and Viking Metal laugh.gif
Bondy
Theres some good tunes in there not gonna name em due to i might get booted from GMC for bad taste LOL
The Uncreator
Well I think we all agree that the Final Countdown is just damn catchy laugh.gif
fatb0t
Accept - Balls to the wall ? Really?

That tune is bad ass, it's funny - but I wouldn't say it's bad
Henry Dietzel
I saw a few on this list that I wouldn't have added....I'm not going to throw myself under the bus by naming them though biggrin.gif

16. Silent Lucidity - Queensryche


Here's another VH1, where Queensryche song *Empire* is number 5 on the charts

EMPIRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRE!!!!! I love this song! laugh.gif
Trond Vold
What the.... that list was insulting!
There's some brilliant songs there smile.gif

Marek Rojewski
I think that the author of the topic tries to say, that these songs are not enough metal, that they sound more like rock.
I like some of the songs from the list, and don't know many!:/

I think the author agree`s in the main with the list, thats fine smile.gif its his opinion, now ... what does he like that we can tear apart laugh.gif tongue.gif
Gus
Estranged is one of the best songs ever!

Can t believe someone put it on a list bad songs...

Of course there are many other that should not be there (like wind of change) but estranged?
swingline
I'm ashamed that Wind of Change is on there, its a great song with great meaning.

P.S. I hate these lists, they're never accurate, this ranks up with the best guitarists list.

Balls to the Walll is one of the coolest songs ever! laugh.gif

32. Estranged - Guns N' Roses ohmy.gif Can't disagree more.

Yeah, if I made a list of songs I like the most, Estranged would probably come better ranked than 32...
ZakkWylde
I read the topic - and I knew MANOWAR would be in it...

I agree with Gabriel and Gus on this one... doesn't seem right to have this song on the list.

Actually I wish I never read the list as now I have Unskinny Bop stuck in my head laugh.gif " Unskinny Bop, just blows me away, Unskinny Bop Bop, all night and day.... " arggggghhhhh stop the madness!!!!!!!

31. Crazy Nights - Loudness

Loudness FTW+1
Caelumamittendum
I think there are a fairly few wrongs on this list. First of.. Final Countdown really isn't that bad. Maybe I'm just stuck in the 80's anyways, but it has some catchy lines, a nice little solo etc. etc.

Yepp. That's my opinion. I wouldn't dream of saying that's the right opinion. Or that any other is wrong. Or forcing my opinion on anyone (Well, I would try. More or less subtle).
Everyone should be able to laugh at themselfes now and then and take it for what it is. The title gives a hint. "Awesomely Bad". A list someone made for fun. Laugh at those in the list who maybe took it a bit too far. Or if not for anything else, laugh at me and my bad taste when I can't appriciate these guys. I might miss out on something. I like some on that list because their catchiness, but like Bondy I won't mention them, except Poison smile.gif I love some really cheesy music and it's very much OK to laugh at that. I know it's cheesy and that's what I like about them.

I sence I offended some. If so I'm sorry, that was not my intention. Just wanted to share a laugh. If that's the case, then I owe you one. Sorry.

And yes... what does he like ... Hmmmm. I'm sure I'll get my share sooner or later biggrin.gif
OrganisedConfusion
I love a lot of songs on that list. Estranged is my fav Guns and Roses song. Turbo Lover is awesome also biggrin.gif
blindwillie
Here is a fav, appearing in GH4. I'll give you more later. Have to go for a while.

laugh.gif laugh.gif

not offended here, I found from my mid teens that it was "uncool" to like Heavy rock/metal, or at least so a lot of my friends informed me, poking fun at my (then) long locks (alas all now gone sad.gif laugh.gif) and such, we`re all entitled to our opinions.

and agree`ed got to have a laugh at yourself from time to time (or a lot as it seems in my case sometimes huh.gif ) laugh.gif

Believe me, they were! biggrin.gif
Back then they played heavy metal.

Just think about what was considered rock and roll when it all started.. laugh.gif
