Re: VH1 40 Worst Metal Songs


SOTW tribute also has Kip Winger singing Spacetruckin' emoticon.

Yngwie ruins Speed King by blazing through the middle section. Instead of a blusey interlude he turns it into a shred fest.

Hush is the most tolerable on the album IMO.

I agree with this,ST wasn't handled with care by Winger,and Hush was the most interesting thing that album had to offer.

Re: VH1 40 Worst Metal Songs


I quite like that Stormbringer song on the tribute and also Hush. I haven't actually listended to that in along while. In fact, other than Glenn's live tribute to Tommy Bolin, it's probably the first and last tribute album I will ever buy. It's true what they say, who needs tribute albums when you've got the originals!

Re: VH1 40 Worst Metal Songs


I found the show mildly entertaining.

Did Quiot Riot make it? I did not watch the whole thing.

At least the Europe guy did not join UFO.

I think Norum would have been a tremendous asset to UFO personally.

Just saw this last night. No Purple tunes on the list, but Whitesnakes 1987 version of "Here I Go Again" came in at number 15. Dio's "The Last in Line" also made the list. The number 1 worst song was Europe's "The Final Countdown". One reviewer stated that "Keyboards should be outlawed in heavy Metal Bands".



What a ridiculous joke. Dio's Last in Line is right up there with the best of Sabbath, Purple, Zeppelin...name a band.
Although "Here I Go Again" isn't Whitesnake's best (haven't heard the original), it's still a good song with a fantastic solo by Sykes. The solo alone takes it OUT of the "worse". But then, i play guitar...
"Final Countdown" was one of the LAST good Europe songs. The playing and singing are excellent, though the song itself lyrically is a bit lame. I always looked forward to the VERY Blackmore-ish (was the player Norum?) guitar solo.

The solo is by Adrian Vandenberg, not John Sykes.

Yes, John Norum was the guitarist on TFC.

Europe released a good follow-up (Out Of This World) with equally excellent guitar playing by Kee Marcello.

Europe make Creed seem good. Just plain awful.

Most certainly. I slightly more metallic AC/DC but, the basic formula is there.

I love Accept, both Balls To The Wall and Metal Heart are fantastic albums. Those VH1 people are just Michael Bolton-worshipping dorks from below Hellsville.
