Slayer: The early years...

Say what you want about Slayer these days but come on, look at their history. They are a legendary band who influence countless people. Classic albums, the best riffs and they remained consistent and never changed. Respect.
Spirit In Black is their best song EVER! Prove me wrong....😬
They had a great run of classic albums. Especially with the original lineup. And were a monster live band. But it’s time to hang it up.

Have you got your tickets?

No thanks. Would rather eat my own weight in snails than see Def Leppard.
Tribute singer in one, band singing to tracks the other...for how much???
I'd get my tickets if it was 4 lawn seats for $25. Not paying premium prices for "Journey" and a testosterone-free Def Leppard.
Two of the worst band's ever
Nope 👎 both bands have had their time! Move on in life gentlemen.
Will you come to UK
I am the rare positive. I am making the trip Stateside to see them in New York and I can not wait. Haters can hate, lovers can love 😉 It's gonna be a blast ......
The Chick Band Tour
If Steve Perry isn't there, it's not Journey.
Adding the pretenders later in the tour too I see.
Got two tickets and promptly wiped my ass with ‘em!
Not a hater I’d see em in a club or state fair it’s not the epic they think it is
Journey cover band.
Why oh why can't Journey be supporting the UK tour? I'd love to have seen them 😳
Looks like Joe’s about ready to bust out of his girdle.

Today's Big Question comes from Meilan Mu, who says, "Hey! I’m writing my BA thesis soon about the way God is portrayed in music. Could you ask for people’s favourite songs about God or with the subject of God?" Thanks Meilan!

After Forever by Black Sabbath. There are many Black Sabbath songs that are Pro God and Jesus Christ, but this is the definitive one.
Dear God XTC LYRICS Dear God, hope you get the letter and I pray you can make it better down here I don't mean a big reduction in the price of beer But all the people that you made in your image See them starving on their feet 'Cause they don't get enough to eat from God I can't believe in you Dear God, sorry to disturb you but I feel that I should be heard loud and clear We all need a big reduction in amount of tears And all the people that you made in your image See them fighting in the street 'Cause they can't make opinions meet about God I can't believe in you Did you make disease and the diamond blue? Did you make mankind after we made you? And the Devil too! Dear God don't know if you noticed but Your name is on a lot of quotes in this book And us crazy humans wrote it, you should take a look And all the people that you made in your image Still believing that junk is true Well I know it ain't, and so do you Dear God I can't believe in I don't believe I won't believe in heaven or hell No saints, no sinners, no devil as well No pearly gates, no thorny crown You're always letting us humans down The wars you bring, the babes you drown Those lost at sea and never found And it's the same the whole world 'round The hurt I see helps to compound The Father, Son and Holy Ghost Is just somebody's unholy hoax And if you're up there you'll perceive That my heart's here upon my sleeve If there's one thing I don't believe in It's you Dear God
‘Skeleton Christ’ by Slayer 👍 “You'll never touch God's hand You'll never taste God's breath Because you'll never see the second coming Life's too short to be focused on insanity I've seen the ways of God I'll take the devil any day Hail Satan!!”
Hallowed be thy Name for sure. It covers the whole gamut of emotions as a man faces his impending death. It also questions the existence of God and if he is there then “why does he let me go?”
"God gave Rock n Roll to you" Nothing else needs to be said
God was never on your Side by Motörhead. A brilliant set of lyrics from Lemmy God Was Never On Your Side" If the stars fall down on me And the sun refuse to shine Then may the shackles be undone, And all the old words, cease to rhyme. If the skies, turn into stone, It will matter not at all, For there is no heaven in the sky, Hell does not wait for our downfall, Let the voice of reason shine, Let the pious vanish for all times, God's face is, hidden, all unseen, You can't ask him what it all means He was never on your side, God was never on your side Let right or wrong, alone decide, God was never on your side. See the ten thousand ministries, See the holy righteous dogs, They claim to heal but all they do is steal, Abuse your faith, cheat & rob. If god is wise, why is he still, When these false prophets call him friends, Why is he silent, is he blind, Are we abandoned in the end? Let the sword of reason shine, Let us be free of prayer & shrine God's face is hidden, turned away He never has a word to say He was never on your side God was never on your side Let right or wrong, alone decide, God was never on your side. (No, No, No) He was never on your side, God was never on your side Never, Never, Never, Never, Never on your side [x2] God was never on your side, Never on your side.
"God Only Knows" - The Beach Boys.
So, not sure this belongs on a classic rock feed, but "Jesus Christ Superstar" is still an amazing album. It was quite controversial when it came out in the early 70s, but will gain new popularity this Easter, especially with Alice Cooper in it.
'For The Greater Good of God' by Iron Maiden. Definitely in my top 5 Maiden songs.
Far away eyes : stones . I was driving home early Sunday morning thru Bakersville California, listening to gospel music on the colored radio station & the preacher said you always have the lord my your side , well I was so pleased to be informed of this that I ran 20 red lights in his honor , thank you Jesus , thank you 🙏 lord .
"Dumb All Over / Heavenly Bank Account" by Frank Zappa And if these words, you do not heed Your pocketbook just kinda might recede When some man comes along And claims a godly need He'll clean you out Right through your tweed
Flood by Jars of Clay - actually the whole album. I'm not a big fan of this genre of music but this album is really good (it doesn't shove religion in your face).
Helloween- Keeper of the 7 Keys... Years after the song was released, they revealed that the Keeper is Jesus Christ... (and defeats satan in the end of the song) My fav band of all time<3
Presence of the Lord - Eric Clapton. When will I ever learn to live in God - Van Morrison. God gave rock and roll to you - Argent.
Grave Robber by Petra and also We Will Remember by Tommy Walker and also hard to top Spirit In The Sky by Norman Greenbaum
I like KING'S X albums, which to me sound lyricswise quite religious, although religion is not necessary always good thing. Or the way it shows up in people's actions.
One should believe in some god to enjoy a song about that god, though an artist could deliver a great song that can be enjoyed regardless. I have enjoyed Leonard Cohen's Hallelujah but I think I interpret it differently than most.
"My Sweet Lord" by George Harrison. Also, an obscure one on Queen's first album called "Jesus" which is about the Son of God, so a bit off topic.
Hmmm, Neal Morse has SEVERAL songs about god...I couldn't care less about religion but Neal is one of the best prog composers of this era.
God Hates Us All.... nah just kidding. It would have to be God Gave Rock n Roll to You by Kiss and God Only Knows by the Beach Boys because they are both so meaningful. And what the heck Enemy of God by Keator.
Jesus is just alright by The Doobie Brothers, My Sweet Lord by George Harrison, Spirit in the sky by Norman Greenbaum
It feeds it grows It clouds all that you will know Deceit deceive Decide just what you believe I see faith in your eyes Never you hear the discouraging lies I hear faith in your cries Broken is the promise, betrayal The healing hand held back by the deepened nail Follow the god that failed
Spirit in the Sky by Norman Greenbaum. It's so badass that you forget it's actually a Christian tune. LOL And My Sweet Lord by George Harrison. Great tune!
Eric Burdon Long version Don't let me be misunderstood My favorite song. Listen to the 7 plus minutes version off the Sun Secret album
He spoke to me in the voice so sweet I thought I heard the shuffle of the angel's feet He called my name and my heart stood still When he said, "John go do My will! Johnny Cash - God's Gonna Cut You Down

From the archives: RESPECT!

Who gives a shit. I could care less if Sebastian and Pitt did some DP on Applegate
I say she upgraded.
Bach is slowly starting to resemble The Crypt Keeper.
That's a series of shots she'll probably never forget #syphilis #gonorrhea
Yeah...and Julia Roberts was once married to Lyle Lovett. There's no accounting for taste
Do better, Loudwire smh
Sebastian Bach wants to be important once again.
Sebastian was absolutely gorgeous in the 80s. He would've been hard to beat even by brad Pitt so I can't say I blame her at all
Slow day at the office?
That's because they have the same plastic surgeon
I'm guessing she regrets that decision. . 🙄
In retrospect, mistake on her part
She probably heard Sebastian could tie his schlong in a knot.
He looks like a zombie 🧟‍♂️ now!😂☠️
She choose a rockstar over a movie star? Shocker😐
She was High
That was a mistake
He looks like a chucky doll
Who cares.

Which Iron Maiden album is better? Vote for 'Somewhere in Time' with the love emoji or for 'Seventh Son of a Seventh Son' with the wow emoji.

SIT. Hands down. Personally I've never particularly liked SSOASS. I don't understand all the hype frankly. But that's just IMHO...
This should be illegal.
The cover of Somewhere gives extra points
Somewhere in time is my fav iron maiden album hands down lol
Seventh Son was epic. An amazing album. When the album came out, I wasn't as big an Iron Maiden fan as I am now. Seventh Son made me a appreciate them more. Funny story; my best friend was a huge Iron Maiden fan. He skipped school to go buy Seventh Son. That night, when I saw him and asked how the album was, he almost started crying. He thought Seventh Son was so good that Maiden was going to call it quits. "They can't top it." he said over and over again.
My two favorite songs wasted years and stranger in a strange land but seventh son is just a all around great album
Somewhere in Time because the guitar solo at the end of "Loneliness of the Long Distance Runner" It would be "Seventh Son of the Seventh Son" if that solo was not there
Seventh Son of a Seventh Son but both are masterpieces 🤘
Both are great, but I'll go with Seventh Son here. Better songs and production, in my opinion.
Both are great records but I have a soft spot for Seventh Son Of The Son. So many amazing, atmospheric and unique songs. I've spent a lot of time with this album and it's still one of my favourites by Maiden.
Seventh Son just edges it overall, but SIT is an amazing album.
I love both, but Seventh son wins. Infinite dreams, the clairvoyant, the evil that men do, moonchild, seventh son of a seventh son, can I play with madness? Man the whole album is absolutely killer!
That is an incredibly hard question. Neither are my favorite but they are so close in quality that it is damn near impossible to pick the better. But song for song I am of the opinion that Somewhere In Time is slightly better.
Seventh Son by a nose! I like SIT alot...but other than Can I play with madness, Seventh Son is more consistent..I do love Caught somewhere in time, Stranger, and Loneliness.. all gems..Seventh is better though!! MOONCHILD and THE CLAIRVOYANT!!
"The Evil That Men Do" is the only song I like on Seventh Son where as "Heaven Can Wait" is the only song I dont like on Somwhere In Time
Seventh Son Of A Seventh Son was my first album I bought with my own money, so I'm kind of biased on this one lol
SSOASS is my favourite album of all times, but straight up saying i prefer it to SIT is a travesty... both are absolutely awesome and best Maiden albums in my opinion. Love them <3
My 8 year old son says Somewhere In Time so that's what I'm going with to even as much as I love Seventh Son.
No contest. Seventh Son of a Seventh Son hands-down is the winner.
Seriously hard decision there, what with Wasted Years and Moonchild on each album, both great albums.
Got to go put on somewhere in time now! Thanks!
Both great albums but I got to go with Somewhere in Time
SIT has four good(not even great)songs, the 2 singles,title track and Sea Of Madness.the rest is shit.
Somewhere in time. SSOASS is almost as good but alexander the great edges it out

Who is gonna stand up and defend some of these? 👊

Angela Bettua your ex made the list 😱
Risk by Megadeth is the worst for me. Even St Anger has like 3-4 alrightish songs
I loved the motley one
I thought Black Rain was amazing
The lyrics on St. Anger were good. That's all I got.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h99nhdNnfm8&t=103s I defend St. Anger
Def Lep had one good song on that album. “Go”. At least in my opinion
Generation Swine is a masterpiece and WAY ahead of its time

Metallica don't have plans to remix the album which was infamously bereft of Jason Newsted's bass...

Read the full story 👉 http://bit.ly/2CF09Ae

Don't mess with it, it's ok the way it is
Jason Newsted filled in nicely for Cliff and they shit in him 🖕🏻🖕🏻
I’ve listened to the mixes with his bass levels raised to a higher level and it sounds cool. However it makes the songs smoother and not as dark and raw sounding. The guitar:drum only mix makes the album work in a strange way.
“Remix” or REMASTER! A Remix is some dancy techno version. Or a different take on the song. Remastered is make the old version sound better.
And justice for all.....except Jason
no surprises; Larz wanted this all then and he never changed mind nor he wanted to give people something different from that. No Justice for Jason. I must say KEA, RTL and MOP were remastered but not remixed, just to be fully honest. Whatever.
Truth be told. Everything Metallica did after this album was selling out. Everything before this. Was killer! And I don’t claim to be a Metallica fan. However I have respect for them. In their early years. They brought great music with intelligent lyrics talking about real issues. Unlike mainstream “metal” at the time.
There was bass in that album? Hmm🤔 never would of guessed
Gimme fuel Gimme fire Gimme bass in the album please
Since "Justice" is next in line for the remastered releases, I was really hoping for it to be remixed as well. Still interested to hear the remaster whenever it arrives. The "Puppets" remaster was like hearing it for the first time!
Can we have bass in the album? Or a track? Just.... One?
....and justice for Jason exists already. Been on Youtube for years...
It’s sad the way they are treating Jason. Lars is a straight up sorry excuse for a drummer. He’s not into ability 😂😂😂😂😂ole lame ass
have some respect its metallica's last great album
Newstead has gone on record saying that he didn't want the album remixed anyway. He wants the album to stay in the original, successful, legendary form.
As much as I wish the album had more bass, I think remixing it 30 years later is too little, too late. Just leave it as it is. Still a great album.
Leave it the way it was released. The way we all remember it sounded. The and Jason for ALL is fantastic don't get me wrong.
Why spend the money on that when people on Youtube have already done it for free? They just just include a URL to those videos in the release and help those guys get paid through ad revenue.
Its not like you could "make the bass louder". it wasnt recorded digitally on a file you could easily open. It was recorded on tape which I'mp sure would be totally ruined by now.
Don’t touch it. Doesn’t need it. It’s perfect how it is. Their best album. Heaviest album. NOW GIVE ME THE 30TH ANNIVERSARY BOX SET SO I CAN SPEND MONEY
I loved that album it was a Metal Masterpiece.All the songs were over 5 minutes long and excellent drumming.
Won’t let Jason Newsted have any bass credentials on justice for all Won’t give Dave Mustaine credit for........everything!
Just leave it the way it is. Don't tamper with it and ruin it like the Megadeth or Ozzy remastered reissues.
I bought it the day it was released, I thought something was wrong with my stereo or speakers. I remember wondering for the longest time why I can't hear the damn bass....lol
I actually like the way it sounds as is. The lack of bass gives it this really kinda minimal sound. Adding bass is this extra layer it doesn't need.
