Hey !!! Slayer aint no fluffy a$$ Brittney Agulera pop sh** that sits on the charts for months! !! Fact is...62,000 folks brought Christ Illusion last week puittin them up at number 5, they are the Best Cult Band in the world !! They will sell their 2 or 3 hundred thousand copies, tour their asses off in 5000 seaters and metal festivals, take some time off, and do it all over again, as they have since 83 !!!! That my friends ,is the way its done!!! Slayer Rules !!

the fray? snow patrol? chilli peppers? this is what they consider rock/metal/alt? those are pop groups. aside from slayer, i cant stand to listen to anyone else shown here. though i guess it doesnt matter, i could give two whole sh**s less about who does well on the billboard charts. congrats to slayer though.
