Forum Post: Any New Albums Lately?

Should we hold hands and sing American Pie? Or would that be too sentimental?
I'd gladly flood the board with random music thoughts, but I'm not sure it would make much of a difference.

Forum Post: What is your favorite heavy metal song?

Killing in the Name by Rage Against the Machine. Technically that's rap metal, so if you want Heavy Metal, I'd say Am I Evil? by Diamond Head.

His voice, and that cover song, always makes me think of The Wonder Years. An incredible, unique voice. I'd even venture to say his version was better than The Beatles original.
