Site Update

Gotcha, April Fools!

We hope you enjoyed our April Fools gags yesterday, as we devoted the entire day to them. We sure did. They weren't as many as last year's, but we managed to get some good ones out nonetheless. If you happened to fall for any of them, then we apologize. If you weren't tricked, then hopefully you were still entertained. If you missed the stories, you can still read them all here. (Note the date on each story, however, to determine which ones are April Fools stories.)

We now return to our regularly scheduled programming of Real MetalTM news. Thanks for reading.

NEITHER WOULD I.THE ONLY WAY I'D OF TUNED IN WOULD BE IF AXL ROSE WAS DUMB ENOUGH TO PARTICIPATE.And although I did not necessarily fall for it I did have my fingers crossed on the SABBATH one.If it aint OZZY then it's gotta be DIO otherwise I don't want to know.
