10 Good Artists/bands That Got Horribly Shite: Exhibit B

Another 10 bands that used to release good shite but then released shite shite.
10Def Leppard
Pyromania


Once upon a time, Def Leppard were a prime New Wave of British Heavy Metal band and their first releases were romps of pure rawk. But then they got slick and saw $$$ and well you know how it went from there. Pour some SHITE on me, more like...
9Lou Reed
Metal Machine Music


Funnily enough, I quite like this album of more or less pure incomprehensible noise (no surprise that I also like 'Lulu'). But as much respect as I have for the late Reed, he released from stinkers in his long career.
8Machine Head
The More Things Change...


Like some bands on my last list, there are many who may argue that Machine Head were never good. Well this is my list, go and shite somewhere else. After this album, Rob and company caved to label pressure to write more commercial songs along the lines of the rising Nu Metal trend and released a string of stinkers. When this didn't translate into the sales they hoped for, they went back to what they did best... or at least tried. Marks for effort, I guess, or at least for stopping being totally shite.
7Megadeth
Cryptic Writings


Now before you blow your fuses at me, let the record show that there actually isn't a single Megadeth album I consider to be complete shite. No, not even 'Risk'. However, by shedding the awesome licks and shreds that he did better than anyone before, MegaDave made a bit of a blunder all right. Thankfully, they got good again in the 21st century and all is well. Or at least less shite.
6Metallica
Load


So yeah, I'm a bit of a Metallica fanboy even after all these years. And so fucking what, everyone has a favourite band and mine just happen to be Metallica. I don't even consider 'St. Anger' to be all that shite but I can admit that making more mainstream radio rock and alienating your fans and basically pissing all over them is generally not a good idea usually mostly kind of fuck you Lars. The Loads are much maligned too and I can see why. I dig 'em, but I understand why lots of people think they're shite. Just blare 'Master of Puppets' even if you're one of those twats who just pretends not to like it.
5Slayer
Diabolus In Musica


It can be difficult to pinpoint exactly where Slayer went shite, at least in comparison to their classic works. Again I must stress, I don't really think any of their albums are all that shite, but experimenting with nu metal is often an ill-advised move and even though they didn't go purely nu like Machine Head, there was a time when Slayer's output was sorely lacking in the balls to the wall oomph of their earlier releases.
4Anthrax
Stomp 442


Okay, so unlike the rest of the Big Four, Anthrax have an album that I consider to be a bit shite. And it's this one. They just didn't have the fire, the rage, the passion. John Bush is a fantastic vocalist so I can't blame him. It's just such a forgettable album. Shite.
3In Flames
Reroute To Remain


Again, people may differ in opinion as to when In Flames became a bit shite, but this is where I point my finger at. Metalcore? Really? Nothing against the genre but I think it's shite. So I guess I have that much against it actually...
2Queensryche
Empire


What was once an impressive heavy/power metal band became a joke thanks to Geoff Tate and his $$$ whoring ways. Empire was the last decent album they made before 'Mindcrime II' which was itself a bit shite compared to its prequel. Now without Geoff Tate they've made a cracking new album this year, but not enough to wash away the pungent smell of the shite they put out for almost 20 years.
1Weezer
The Green Album


No joke entry this time, but fairly obvious all the same. Weezer's last truly great album was their second one, although Hurley isn't too bad. However, after the Green album they just became shite. Nothing memorable about anything for a long time save for how blandly shite it all was. Hopefully their new album can pick up the shattered pieces of what was once Rivers Cuomo's creativity.
