I’ve been noticing these days some of the greatest musicans out there haven’t been getting the attention the should. Some examples are GWAR and Dragonforce. I think this is happening because of the rap and pop singers.(I hate that stuff). What bands do you think are under rated.

Actually gwar are great musicians, you simply cant appreciate it. Music isn’t a contest. I don’t like the idea of rating bands, overrated, underrated, it doesn’t matter ultimately. It matters if you enjoy it or not.

If you want to know why gwar, anthrax, megadeth, and other bands are not more famous or popular that would be because some people don’t like their protective bubble busted and can’t handle hearing offensive or crude language even when the message is positive.

I like the quote rob zombie made in the documentary “Metal, a headbangers journey” he said

“I’ve never met the guy that just kinda likes metal, or the guy that was into Slayer for one summer. I’ve only met the guy that has SLAYER carved into his arm.”

Personally I love metal and I love a lot of other types of music. I like country and blues artists like Cash and Dylan and I like rappers like Sage Francis and Mos Def. I grew up listening to lots of punk rock so naturally I have undying love for The Misfits, Black Flag, Face to Face and Dropkick Murphys. I also like newer bands like The Killers and Alkaline Trio. It really doesn’t matter about genre or style, it is about if you’re good at it and you love doing it. If you have both of those things no one can say “you suck” they can only say they don’t like it.

Of course opinions are like assholes, everyone has one and most of them stink.
