A. Youth Gone Wild is a Skid Row song.000aB. Winger had good technical ability, if nothing else000aC. Poison is a blight on mankind's collective legacy and the sooner any and all memory and/or evidence of their work is gone, the better we as a species will be.
The NICKLE back singer sounds like the Adorable DEE SNIDER when he sings.
The HOLE BASS player has no clue about HEAVY METAL in this part.

I kind of agree I hate WINGER with it's lecherous old man lyrics, and warrant only had one good song YOUTH GONE WILD, but POISON IS MELODIC METAL.
I felt sick watching this and thinking that somehow a genuine Metal Head, who mourned the selling out of Metallica with the Black Album, is actually trying to give props to some crap like Grunge and Alice In Chains is not Grunge they are a good Metal Heavy Band and can play and sing and aren't whiny I hate my life wussies
I never considered Poison, Winger, Warrant to be metal. I never considered grung anything more than top 40 music
Really don't know how Sam mistook grunge for metal, its pretty obvious to the ear. I will preface that statement by saying i grew up with all that "post grunge" on the radio. So to me when i went back and herd Nirvana, PearlJam, Alice in Chains, it really just sounded like the same stuff just a bit harder / grungier. Not sure if that's a bias. Though to me grunge is obviously not metal, seems much more like a subgenre of Hardrock. 000a000a000aSecondly, i don't understand. In the beginning a couple of the people interviewed talk as if grunge is this very intellectual kind of music, when compared to metal. I find this statement odd for a couple of reasons. 000a000aFirstly the bands / producers themselves admitted that the musicianship of grunge wasn't overly complicated, or over the top. They even seemed to appreciate the simplicity the music they were creating. Intelligent doesn't seem the right way to describe, simple music. It would seem more intelligent to create something complex, rather than something simple. 000a000aNext, many of the bands saw them self as an extension of punk. Ironically Punk was viewed as unintelligent, basic music, made only by teenage bands, when it first came out. For example in the mainstream's eye, the Ramones were thought of as incredibly stupid. So that is also contradictory in my opinion. 000a000aLastly the older guy, said something to the effect of metal lyrically being about teenage rebellion. Though when i think of Teenage rebellion music, oddly enough Punk, which apparently greatly influenced grunge, seems to be the genre most associated with rebellion in my mind.
and trust me i like grunge but not near as much as glam! ill stop there b4 i get even angrier
wat with the glam metal hatred? u do realize ALOT of grunge has been overplayed too! Grunge isn't metal its separate and pop metal (glam) is technical metal so stop ******* bashing it!!!!
With regards to demographics, how many metalheads do they think are gonna buy some Latisse?
no mention of Local H?
There's plenty of good grunge. Given the advertising this show should focus more on actual metal than this and glam. Enjoyed the last couple episodes, I just assumed/hoped the extreme genres would be featured a bit more than they have. Agreed on glam as well. Take out either of these episodes and put in extreme metal and this show would've been great.
Grunge is worth a whole episode over Glam any day. VH1 still loves the hair bands more than the grunge bands as they shove it down everyone's throats with there repetitive 80s video shows. The metal show had Winger on! You think winger is more Metal than the Grunge bands Like- Alice In Chains, SoundGarden, and the rest. They don't have the guts to invite one of the grunge bands on because there just a place for VH1s only club. "Metal Evolution is just 1 fans way to get the most people to watch.
I'm glad that grunge got rid of that stupid glam metal crap!
Three episodes left, and there's several major genres of metal that haven't even been mentioned yet. By my count we still have death/grind, melodic, math, doom, power, and metalcore. Was I confused when this was advertised as an "in depth look at the most misunderstood genre of music," when really it's an in depth look at heavy mainstream music? Why are we wasting one whole episode trying to justify grunge as metal? Interested how you're going to shove the rest of the genre into 3 eps.
I wish there was some way to watch this without having to view the same stupid clip of a dumb-ass movie 24 times.
