not ALL pop is crap (but a lot is) however i totally agree about the rest
You're right, all pop isn't complete crap.
These days, yeah, but back in the day Metallica was the epitome of metal. Obviously, they did a lot for thrash metal with their early albums. And Iron Maiden happens to be my favorite band. They may not be the most technically skilled band, but they are very talented and have contributed a lot to metal. Dual-lead guitar, know who pioneered that sound? Have you heard of the New British Wave of Heavy Metal?
"Hit your guitar as hard as you can"? I'm sorry, I DO listen to Led Zeppelin, and I think it's a great band. But saying that metal requires the least skill with a guitar is just plain bullshit. Have you ever heard of or listened to bands/artists such as The Faceless, Animals as Leaders, Cynic, Dream Theater, Queensrÿche, Buckethead, Sikth, or Periphery, to name a few? You can't say that they require no skills at all, their songs have technicality and complexity that I highly doubt can be magically hit on a guitar.
THANK YOU!! All this pop crap that claims they're "rock" is annoying. If the throw in one f#m chord it's considered "complicated." My.Ass. It's unbelievable how bands like Metallica play the most complex guitar chords ever and they memorize them!! And they can still play them after all these years WITHOUT the need for auto-tune or any shit like that.
Genres are so convoluted and interchanged these days, I don't even know what metal is. If it's like Metallica, Rammestein, and Iron Maiden then you sir, are void.
I like screamo sometimes, but most of it sounds exactly the same. Its hard to tell where one song ends and another begins.
Metallica is not bad! If u actually listened to the guitars, they are quite skilled. If fact, they are one of the best bands i've ever heard w/ actual harmonies. Rap, pop, and country is all shit and can go jump in a septic tank.
If there was a way to thumbs-up or favorite comments, I would do just that to this one.
I love you for posting this.
Metal is the genre that requires the least skill with a guitar and etc.All you got to do is hit your guitar as hard as you can.
This is talking from experience.I'd suggest OP should go listen to Led zep or something and see true skill.
