Wow! The metal community sure seems to be united in their hatred of Poison and Def Leppard, judging by these posts! At least the respect of Cheap Trick seems to be there, I mean they were pioneers in their own way.

Having said all that, I have to point out that both Poison and Def Leppard put on pretty damn good live shows, they are pros at that. I would recommend anyone who does not hate these bands to check them out. (Not that theres seems to be anyone like that here!)

Actually I decided not to go to the Jonas Bros. show cause Amon Amarth was coming to NC. Tough decision.

I'm just wondering when people will realize that most people who visit this site aren't bagging on bands like this because they are too heavy, it's cause they aren't heavy enough. I have no problem with either band myself, honestly couldn't really care less, but I'm in no way surprised they aren't very popular here.
