Inspired by another user's list. Totally un-true bands I find appealing.
This is my favorite band. My favorite genres are death and thrash metal, but I've been a Slipknot fan for quite a while. They were the first heavy band I got into, if it were not for them, I would not have gotten into metal. I still love them, I don't care if it means I'll never fit in on sites like Metal-Archives, I love this band.
A fine hard rock band imo. See also: Slipknot.
|3||Five Finger Death Punch|
I don't love this band like I used to, but I still believe "The Bleeding" is fucking epic. Their lyrics suck, but the music is good, in your face metal.
I only like about 10 Korn songs, but I don't think they're that bad. Yeah, they gave birth to nu-metal, but I can't help but love songs like "Blind" and "Freak On A Leash".
|5||Bullet For My Valentine|
They have a few gems. They're not brilliant by any means, far from it, but they're not an awful band.
|6||System Of A Down|
This was my favorite band for the longest time, and I still love their music. "Toxicity" is such an amazing album.
|7||American Head Charge|
Damn fine industrial/nu-metal band. The War Of Art was one of the first heavy albums I ever got into.
|8||Lamb Of God|
This is just a damn good band. That's all there is to it. "Ashes Of The Wake" is nearly flawless.
Good, thrashy metalcore. "Resurrection" is fantastic.
|10||All That Remains|
Metalcore done right.
Very hit or miss, they have some fantastic stuff, some really shitty stuff, and some ok stuff. Don't listen to them much anymore, but when I do, I enjoy what I'm hearing.
Deftones and Korn are alike in that they've both written some amazing songs, but overall they're not a band that makes albums I'd listen to from start to finish without getting bored. Really love the tracks "Change", "Bored", "Passenger", etc.
I hate this band for the most part, but I also find some of their material to be enjoyable. "My Immortal" and "Lithium" are two extremely catchy songs I can't help but like.
First female-fronted band I got into. They've produced some great stuff, and some not so great stuff.
Love this band, have since I first heard them. Can't wait for the next album.
I'm quick to bash Dimmu, but I secretly think they're kinda sorta ok. Progenies Of The Great Apocalypse and Puritania are awesome imo.
See: Korn, Deftones.
I'M ON THE OUTSIDE, AND I'M LOOKING IN
|Deftones should never, ever be a guilty pleasure. It's the sort of pleasure you wave flags about.|
But I agree about 18.
|1, 2, 6, 8 and 12 are great, and 5 are alright|
|totally agree with the description of 5. Also KoRn is still a good band in my eyes.|
The only things in here that I really do not like at all are 7 and 13. Not a big fan of 6 and 8 either.
|rofl at 16. secretly think they are kinda sorta okay.. xD|
|6 9 10 and 12 should not be guilty.|
|what Captain North said about Deftones. They are a really great band i'd never be ashamed to admit i like|
|Ok, what the fuck is guilty about Chimaira, Devildriver or Lamb Of God? That's right, theres nothing fucking guilty about any of them. Each a solid band.|
|Jeez welcome to 2002 when I was 16 and I had never heard of Opeth or Funkadelic. |
|Hell yeah to 6, 10 and 12. None of them are really guilty pleasures to most, though quite a few people hate them.|
|static-x make me wanna hurl|
|Some of these bands really don't need to be guilty pleasures, namely Chimaira. Some are just terrible though.|
|deftones are so good like srsly |
|fuck the total black metal elitists. Dimmu slays.|
|Agreed on 3, but a bit too much of this stuff here|
|1, 2, 4, 6, 8, 12, 13, 14 and 16 are fine, 6 being my favourite from the whole group, they were my favourite band for quite a while too.|
|deftones > everything else.|
not. a. guilty. pleasure. :D
|nah Deftones isn't a guilty pleasure, imo. I enjoy some of Staind songs sometimes |
|I had the riff from 'Open Your Eyes' by Staind stuck in my head for at least a week. Otherwise they suck.|
|All That Remains are pretty good, no guilt there|
|definitely used to think SOAD were class, they're still listenable - quite an inoffensive band|
