    Napster could have made billions for everyone involved, but the Metallitwits went trying to act all uppity and lost much of their fan base. Then the illegal downloading really went through the roof! You can't put a genie back in a bottle, and the stupidest thing they could have ever done was to take it to court after being showed a new business model.
    Now then...who are the largest music retailers today?
    And yes, I play guitar, and Kirk Hammett is still a one-trick pony. Tuddla-tuddla-tuddla-waaah!

    You know me, I dig on my share of one-trick ponies - but Hammet is just a boring player... Those pointless "tricks" veiled in wah grow tiresome very quickly..

    I really don't know for sure but I would guess ITunes...


    Apparently your better.. Doubt it though. As I've said in my previous post.. I'm really no longer a Metallica fan nor have I been for several years. All I said was that the final list of bands is a joke and it is. Metallica is one of the greatest heavy metal bands of all time... You don't have to like em to know that. I still don't know who the Cramps are so I googled them and now I can see why I (or anyone I know) would not know who they are and judging by the huge bar tour they're on, I'm not alone in not caring who they are...

    Rcarie...

    I had many of the same thoughts as you especially when the beatles were one of the first bands voted off. But looking back this is a thread that can be whatever the participants make of it and what the thread starter made of it. We all had the opportunity to add a group and we all had the opportunity to vote for or against whom we wished. I participated for a while and moved on. I think many of the remaining bands do suck but so what..

    I did give the cramps a listen and watch on youtube and was unimpressed to say the least. A bunch of people with poor hygiene playing bad rock, the lead singer giving head to a microphone. Literally! WTF? But who am i to tell others what to listen to right? I'm a jazz fan anyway..

    Hey puck..

    What made you dislike the cramps video? Was it the the repetitive lyrics or the monica lewinsky with the mic?

    Very true.. I learned a long time ago that I never liked a lot of the same kinds of music as others and it's impossible to convince them to like mine. Specially when you try to compare who's better than who.

    Nope, I'm not. I don't play lead, so I get someone else to do that when needed. But I don't have to actually play guitar to know when someone is a hack at it. I'm not an artist either, but I still think that Jackson Pollock sucks. I don't know anything about vegetable farming, but I'm convinced that broccoli is better than brussel sprouts. I'm not an automobile manufacturer, but I think the Camaro is a piece of crap. Etc.
