I bet they put Enter Sandman to try and get Metal fans to like this. Why does the media do this, every promoting something uses Enter Sandman because its Metallica and hot topic sh**s think its brutal guitar amazing Metal. Its the one reason I hate Metallica's self titled album (not saying its crap). In my opnion GH1 has the only good tracklist

Read, "Rock Band" not "Metal Band". Pixies "Wave of Mutilation", cool song.

Qotsa have no right to be here, just because Josh Homme is a stupid pr*ck, with his horrible riffs, f*cking mainstream pop music is all he makes. Listen to the song No One Knows, please tell me that can listen through that song with that pathetic, poppy riff, same with go with the flow, Little sister and that stupid, high pitched, whiney "Whatever you dooooooooooo" song, they are really one of the worst bands I have ever heard, stupid overrated rubbish!!

Onto this list, it's not that good

Shut up. DOn't ever talk about QOTSA like that. Everyone knows that their stoner desert rock is for everyone, including you.
