Regarding heavy metal (I'm not sure if this is on topic or not, but what the fuck...):<br><br>I play in a stupid little band, and one of the things that amuses us is for the guitar to play 'Iron Man', the bass to play 'Smoke on the Water' and for someone to sing 'In-a-gadda-da-vida' over the top, with the drums trying to keep everything together.<br><br>Everyone who's seen this thinks we're out of our minds.<br><br>

My top 3 bands are KISS  ALICE COOPER  and  BLACK SABBATH. They were all great till the mid eighties. I've been listening to them since I was very young (along with tons of other bands). I moved on to PUNK ROCK/HARDCORE when I was 14 but I still love a lot of the old hard rock/metal that I grew up on. My record collection is getting out of control....over 1200 on vinyl, about 700 cds, 3 or 400 cassettes, 20 or 30 8-tracks and countless videos including mant boots. :(

But it could also have something to do with all the shit he was drinking and smoking as well. Plus I'm sure there were electronic alterations added to his voice as they went along and had more money to spend on their records. ;D<br>

Sleepytime Gorilla Museum!<br>with a name like that, and songs like "Sleep is wrong" and "Tonight we're gonna party like it's 1997," how could you not like them!?  very heavy stuff, and also some non-heavy really weird abstarct pretty songs like "sunflowers."<br><br>Also TOOL!!!<br>i saw tool in October at UMASS in the Mullins<br>(meshuggah opened up, i wasn't impressed with them and they're coreographed headbanging)<br>and they were fabulous of course!!  i even sported a zappa t-shirt there- GOTTA REPRESENT!<br>ANYWAY, i have an interesting FZ related story-<br>before Meshuggah came on to open up, they were playing some music through the speakers (pretty loudly i might add)- just random songs, mostly heavy stuff, you know... and then guess what i hear!!?!?  I recognized it instantly!!  "What Ever Happened to all the Fun in the World?" off of Sheik Yerbouti!  I was flabergasted!!  could Tool be FZ fans?  i woudln't be surprised.<br><br>i am also into Manson and Nine Inch Nails.<br>one day when i went on a zappa-cd shopping binge, i decided to get one non-zappa item.  I bout Nine Inch Nails' two video set "Closure," and to my disbelief, there's footage of Trent Reznor with NIN  (amd if my memory serves me correct, members of Manson as well), listening to "Broken Hearts are for Assholes" before a show and singing along!  I CAN'T GET AWAY FROM ZAPPA!  NO MATTER WHAT I DO!  HE IS HAUNTING ME!<br><br>seems like these heavy-metal guys are into Sheik Yerbouti--- any body hear any commentary from these guys on FZ?

Next to Black Sabbath, the greatest heavy metal band ever(although they're actually rock) is none other than...<br><br>Motörhead.<br><br>ImageImageImageImageImageImageImage<br><br><br>They've been at it since the mid-70s and they're still kicking ass today(their newest album, released last year, is absolutely solid). They aren't cock rock, they weren't ever cheesy glam/hair rock, they're fucking HARD ROCK.
