Exactly Anthony! Hey Dr. Metal, f*** you. Iron Maiden is great. Anyone who denies that has a very low IQ. And how could you call yourself Dr. Metal and not like Maiden?? Maiden were there at the beginning of metal!

All you idiots, Maiden, Slayer, Priest, Sabbath, all that sh**, its old and out of date. Get a life and listen to real music like Linkin Park, Korn, Bizkit, Slipknot, Hed (PE), Crazy Town, Audioslave and other heavy a$$ bands.

Please tell me that that Nu Metal munkey did not include Crazy Town in his rant.Look d*** I mean Doc.I realize your too young to have any real point of reference past 10yrs back when KoRn first debuted,but that does not make it alright for you to be an a$$hole.I happen to like the Nu Metal genre but it ticks me off when underage snot's like yourself,attempt to sacrifice the greates legend's of metal(MAIDEN,PRIEST etc.)on the alter of KoRn.When Nu Metal did'nt start with them or Fred Durst for that matter Nu Metal started with band's like Living Color,Body Count,King's X and Faith No More to name but a few,who am I kidding . You've probably never herd of any of those band's have you sorry about pointing out your short sighted ignorance.However you did stick your neck out.In closing I'd just like to say.If you don't know what your talking about keep it to yourself and last but not least JOHNATHAN DAVIS'S d*** IN YOUR MOUTH IS NOT A GOOD THING !!!! Now go away.

No Eddie=No Ozzfest for this bastard child of metal...and Dr. Metal, seriously, if you ever put the likes of Maiden, Slayer, etc. down again...man oh man...pray I never meet you. AND if you think what you listen to is heavy, I feel I must quote a REAL metal band to give the full effect..."YOU GOT ANOTHER THING COMIN'!!!"

DR METAL is obviously a dumbass troll trying to piss you all off. Nobody seriously mention Linkin Park / Crazytown as examples of "good" metal. Ignore.

Wow, Dr. Metal, you actually think Linkin Park is heavy?? For your own sake, I hope you never meet Kerry King. And do you know why Linkin Park dosn't play guitar solos? Thats right, because they have no talent. See, bands like LP and Korn will be long gone and forgotten in another couple years, not that you will care, I'm sure you'll be quite satisfied with the next fad, whatever that may be. Iron Maiden, on the other hand, has been kicking a$$ for just about 30 years, and will contine to for many more. And so how does somthing being old make it bad? If somthing is old and still popular, thats just all the more reason to think it might be GOOD! So dont worry, real metal fans, playing Paul Reed Smiths dropped 39 and a half steps like percussion is only a stupid, temoproary, fad which will soon be remedied by MAIDEN AT OZZFEST!!!!!!! UP THE IRONS!!!!
