        I'll give my thoughts on a few moments here.

        Yeah that was lame, especially since it turns out she wasn't even really a fan of Metallica, which didn't do much for the whole "Avril Lavigne is a poser" thing that people have been getting on her for her whole carrer.

        :lol: , Yeah he did seem really out of place.

        36. Faith No More's Jim Martin Grows Pumpkins

        To his credit, he did grow one HUGE pumpkin that made head lights.

        27. Puffy and Page Team Up for "Come with Me"

        Yeah, pretty much everything with Puffy sucks.

        25. Motley Crue Hires John Corabi, Ditches Vince Neil

        I think you might be slightly wrong on this one actually. If memory serves me correctly it wasn't just that Motley Crue hired John Corabi that was the problem. Every Crue got PISSED when the very first album with John Corabi was self titled "Motley Crue." Fans were all up in arms about that. John Corabi was actually a very talented singer, maybe even more so than Vince Neil, but that took balls on Motley Crue's part and was a move that probably shouldn't have been done.

        24. Mariah Does Def Leppard's "Bringin' on the Heartbreak"

        Oh yeah, I remember that one. I was like what the hell is this? In the end though, Def Leppard probably made good money, so I doubt they really care that much.

        As lame as it might sound, I sometimes enjoy these times of chessey blending together of music, myself.

        They Suck

        With some of the things Kiss has done, sometimes you do have to wonder how they were able to have such a huge carrer.

        18. Alice Cooper Trades in His Bad Habits for Golfing

        Oh yeah, cause Alice would be way more of a badass, if the man was dead now. He would rather play golf than shoot himself up with shit and get totally shitfaced? Yeah what a terrible human being Alice is, how dare he find something that helps him live longer for his family, friends and fans. We should all just hang Alice up for being so "uncool" (In case you can't tell, I'm being sarcastic. I'm glad golfing keeps him away from stuff that could kill him, totally fine by me.)

        8. Metallica Cuts Their Hair

        I remember everyone made such a big deal out of this one, which I'll never totally understand. Who cares?
        RetroBen81 wrote:
        7. Sheryl Crow Covers "Sweet Child o' Mine"

        Yup, that was crap. Sheryl Crow is a pretty talent singer and songwriter too, so that just made her look really bad.
        RetroBen81 wrote:
        6. Jethro Tull Wins the First Ever Metal Grammy

        Just proof that those so called "experts on music" don't always know what the hell they're talking about.

        3. Celine Dion Covers AC/DC at VH1's Diva Las Vegas

        That one should be number one, that's a 100 times worse than Ozzy meeting Bush or Vince Neil doing a chicken dance.

            Of course, the real number one least metal moment of all time was VH-1's Least Metal Moments Of All Time, a superfluous laundry list of image gripes in a genre which supposedly prides itself on being "It's about the f***in' music, stupid." :D
