    This is my inner music snob coming out, but bands like that (and their respective fanbase stereotypes) are why its often difficult to get metal taken too seriously on many music fora (and in general). (Sorry if this comes off as sort of assholish, but I have such low opinions of those artists--especially Korn--that's hard for me to respectfully disagree.)

    I tend to listen to a lot of progressive metal, though I'll give most subgenres a chance at least. (Unless it ends in -core. There is no -core subgenre that I can say I like beyond one or two bands.) Some of my favorites:

    Rudra
    Enslaved
    Moonsorrow
    Opeth
    Dream Theater
    Atheist
    Subrosa
    Porcupine Tree
    Mastodon
    Kekal
    Cynic
    Dark Angel

    Like rob zombie. MM ....ok. Korn no.
    I'm still listen to jP stuff. I do need something new.
    Used to listen to obituary a lot ( younger)
    About 10 years ago on Halloween ( not helloween) night I could not find the scary music.
    Kids were flocking the street. So I Put on the obituary cd. Then I notice parents dragging their kids past our house.
    So, no music that night.

    Have I told you lately that I love you?


    Seriously, Hells Yes to the metal. I'll post some Youtube Links when I get a chance, but yeah, it's all about the:

    Old School Metallica
    Motorhead
    Sabbath
    Maiden
    CoC
    Down
    Megadeth
    Black Label Society
    Guns N Roses (Not Axl's new Runs N Poses)
    Overkill
    Testament
    Priest
    Ozzy
    Dio

    Ozzy and Sabbath are two different groups. I hate it when I ask people "what's your favorite Ozzy song?" and they go "Paranoid." Gives me teh Raygess.

    I wish I could have, but I was in Europe at the time. Rudra is probably my favorite metal band.

    I'm not quite sure what the next metal show I'm going to is; maybe Turisas and Alestorm, but I'm not sure. I probably won't see Opeth again. I saw them last time they came around, and while I enjoyed the setlist, I would have much rather heard their heavier stuff.

    I'd argue that they are, just not very good metal.
