THAT'S ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW
iron maiden are one of the best bands i've ever seen. brixton 2002 :D they played Children Of The Damned!
I RAN TO IRAQ T SHIRTS,CLIVE BURR CAME OUT FOR A ROUND OF APPLAUSE,FUCKIN AWESOME TO SEE EM AT BRIXTON,GOT TO SEE ACDC AT HAMMERSMITH THE SAME YEAR I THINK...DONT GET ANY BETTER THAN THAT ;0)
are shocking...i much prefer the harlequin patterned lycra bruce donned for the powerslave tour.
Its ridiculous. Look at the drummer. Theyre the least cool people ive ever seen.
you know diddley squat...heathen
Really funny, yeah.
brought up on dour faced students with floppy fringes and very little talent that i put my money on you will of forgotten thier names in 5 years time, you have never rubbed sweat with 100,000 leather clad long haired men at the hallowed Monsters of rock,nor have you had the pleasure of seeing a man in a school uniform play some of the most awesome guitar work you have ever heard whilst spinning on his back,for this I feel nothing but sadness for you,it is not your fault it is a sign of the times. 666......you know the number,now bow down and beg satans mercy.
My friend brought round an ACDC dvd a while back, and I was bored shitless. I dont care how well a person can play their instrument, and also, fast does not equal better.
don't be irrelevant!
And they can't play their instruments that well.
bet yer scared now
Now i just feel sorry for them
They're genuinely amazing.
for Fall out bOy,mcr et al.....trust me Maiden dont need it...have you actually listened to the crowd,there are a quarter of a million people at this gig.
you can't argue.
sure it's funny, it' quite camp and theatrical, but it's also stunning and epic.
Theres nothing epic about an ageing rockstar prancing about and doing "comedy" guitar poses like "im shooting you with my guitar" and suchlike.
Iron Maiden = Queen but with better guitar work, more evil and less gay sex.
Queen = iron maiden with better songwriting, and a decent frontman
:o that sentence is so, SO wrong
and also, he's been like that since the beginning, it's not like he's pretending to be 'down with the kids'. it's not like tony blair doing a bit of hip hop.
relish the silly guitar poses, don't take it so seriously. it's IS funny.
the thing is with nippers like YES is they have never known a time when rock n roll was meant to be fun,uplifting,theatrical,inspirational and basically about having a good time, fuckin Kurt Cobain and his smacked up cronies put and end to that and its just gone down hill from there,its all about being cool nowadays and EMOtional...ahhh well
I mean, what's the point in having something to express? Art is for children and dykes.
your not very good at this are you
that metal thing that was on, rock of ages, was waaaaaay cool.
althought a quarter of a million singing that big anthemic chorus was pretty mindblowing.
maiden are amazing.
needs some more dissent, if only for yes_'s sake.
("I listen to metal all the time but...") Iron Maiden always were, still are, and always will be as long as they continue inflicting themselves upon the world, utter dogshit.
It might have been "funny" in 1982 but its pretty fucking old now.
it's fun. There's a big difference.
Iron Maiden would still be great if you stripped off all the theatrics, some of those riffs are unbeatable.
categorically incorrect. They are a pox on humanity.
Although I was wondering the other day whether I'm actually capable of enjoying or even recognising 'fun' anymore. Unless it involves either intellectual challenges or hot girls I'm just not really that bothered.
your soul is dead. sorry.
find the whole Iron Maiden thing kind of sinister.
If they were a new band just getting famous now, all you irony loving indie kids would hate them.
they're a huge and established band who've produced some of the most exciting and entertaining rock music ever to come out of our grey rainy little island
You people scare me. Is it all some kind of joke? I feel like I'm in a John Wyndham novel.
drummer who was once on the sooty & sweep show
whats not to love ?
"The Chuckle Brothers of heavy metal"
to name a few.
are the screeching, acid-breathing alien queen to this teeming litter of hideous fuck-children
I fucking love Faith No More but if they hadn't existed, we wouldn't have been blighted by Limp Bizkit, Papa Roach, Linkin Park et al.
But this isn't the principal reason I dislike them, though it no doubt plays its part.
I dislike them mainly because I can imagine a divorced man in his 40s masturbating in time to 'Run to the Hills' as he imagines the cast of Babylon 5 naked.
don't forget the t-shirts.
not Eddie! Eddie's the bset lolz!
So you've got a MASCOT? What's his name? Could you say that a bit louder? Eddie? His name is EDDIE. Fuck you guys so much.
it makes me look megahip
people like them to be 'ironic'.
There's just something slightly upsetting about the fact that people who wouldn't generally give metal the time of day award 'classic' status to the one band that best exemplifies why people look down on metal so much.
Its like there are two conflicting tendencies in metal: the flamboyant, camp element which reaches its natural conclusion with Motley Crue, and the agressive, serious element which probably owes a certain amount to the influence of hardcore.
I guess there's only a limited amount of camp I'm willing to tolerate and IM and JP are off the scale.
Join me, brother!
