I have 4. One, many of these aren't actually moments. Two, Probot at 50? Thats stupid. And also Metallica attacking napster, to me, doesn't seem like it really represents heavy metal. Neither does Tipper Gore.

Ok, there's a big list of things I never knew happened and wish I still didn't! My first thought was here's a lot of people that have ISSUES. :laughing: I agree, many of the "moments" don't really fit the list topic. This also could be titled Most Moronic Moments (that happen to have happened to Heavy Metal band members!!) - generalizing here, but you know what I mean. :) The rump roast(#17) is pretty funny!

And I'm curious, didn't Ozzy bite the head off of a dove (or some other poor small animal)?? Why isn't that on here?

35 Tenacious D pay tribute to Ronnie James Dio.

Dio

Tenacious D

Dio has rocked for a long, long time,

Now it's time for him to pass the torch.

He has songs of wildebeasts and angels,

He has soared on the wings of a demon.

It's time to pass the torch,

You're too old to rock, no more rockin' for you.

We're takin' you to a home,

But we will sing a song about you.

And we will make sure that you're very well taken care of.

You'll tell us secrets that you've learned. Raow!

Your sauce will mix with ours,

And we'll make a good goulash baby.

Dio, time to go!

You must give your cape and scepter to me.

And a smaller one for KG.

Go! Go! Dio! Dio!

I cannot express how happy I am to see my boys on the countdown!

I do think that #3 should be #1...who the hell remembers Hear N Aid?

:rockon: good point! :) I think they should remove the "moronic" items (i.e. peeing on the Alamo?!?) and make a smaller list of events that actually define Heavy Metal music. I suppose you could make the arguement that the crazy antics are a defining charteristic of many Heavy Metal groups. How about 2 lists, the top 20 Most Moronic Metal Moments (the Alamo) and the top 20 Most Memorable Metal Moments (the hand symbol). I'm sure VH1 or someone could come up with better titles! ::

The hand symbol :rockon: is really the University of Texas 'hook-em horns' sign done with both arms. Let's give some credit here to my school. :thumbsup:

Here's something the list didn't mention.

Cannibal Corpse released the single,

"The Pickax Murders (the bi*ch was askin for it)"

amidst protests from women's and victim's rights groups.

OK, so I made up the protesting part. I used to date a death-metal fan and always thought it was a funny title for a song even with the violence it talks about. He was actually a pretty cool guy who just liked that kind of music. The song was #6 on one of Canibal's CDs and whenever I was doing something he didn't approve of he would say,

"Remember #6" then he would make the rock-on :rockon: sign for effect which was what reminded me of the song.

It seems like alot of these aren't really the best moments of metal, just some of the most memorable.

I think that the :rockon: thing or Tony Iommi's bottle cap fingers should be the number 1. I also think that Inna-Gadda-Davida should be MUCH higher. IMO, that was the first real heavy metal song.

I can't totally remember, but I'm pretty sure he did bite off a dove's head. And sometimes during a concert people would throw fake bat's on stage and he would bite thier head's off. But then someone threw a real one up their and he didn't know it. :doh:

Sorry if I grossed anyone out. :laughing:

I heard many versions about that and some people told me it´s true. The hardest thing I saw was the Damned live and the drummer, who probably was annoyed or in a bad trip or something, took a cymbal and threw it flying into the audience... fortunately, all heads remained on their places.

I watched that list on VH1 a few months ago, it was mostly just covering the lifestyle & publicity stunts covered by

forgettably insignificant acts like Motley Crue & Wasp, I mean who wants to remember their stuff, it was the past & it was bad enough back then, that's a time that I don?t necessarily want to reflect upon.

8 Groupies rate rockers sex romps and sizes online.

I went to that website after the show, I lost the addy, I need to find that, anyways they seem to have cleared out their data, because there's no information on which rock stars have small sizes, like they said. LOL :laughing:

Homeless man claims to be "down and out" Kiss drummer Peter Criss.

I think they were just running out of ideas to use in order to complete a top 100 list, I really doubt anybody took that guy seriously.

I don't remember it entirely, because I think I was actually posting here while I had the segment running on the tv, but he basically cut his fingers in some sort of fashion & used bottle caps to give his guitar sound that certain crunch.

I enjoyed it, as well, at first. Motley Crue started it, and Shout at the Devil was a kick a$$ album. Then they re-released their first one, and it was crunchy metal. I also liked Ratt's first two albums. They were raw.

Then, within like, 3 years, every band out there were prettier than most women. I sincerely thought Poison was an all girl band.

Tipper Gore's moment should be replaced by Cream's Farewell concert
