John Mayer - I agree, very overrated. Downright irritating to me.
Radiohead - terrible, just terrible. Might as well listen to Dave Matthews, Linkin Park, or any other band I hate.
Metallica - I still have to love those Metallicats, even though I am up and down with some recent material . . . but there is still a wealth of good stuff coming from them.
KoRn - yeah, I was in high school when their first record came out, I checked it out before ever hearing about them and before that got big - and let me tell you, I disliked it then and I dislike it now. No need to beat a dead horse.
Motorhead - indeed, give Lemmy his due - He was editor of the school magazine ! ! !

Hey JBF, if you want to discuss beautiful metal, I'll point you toward King Diamond's The Puppet Master released just last year. BEAUTIFUL record, just beautiful.
Hey Chux, I believe Springsteen is on that Zevon tribute because Bruce cut a track with Warren on his last album before he died. So I think there is a connection for that reason.
