So I'm building a playlist of heavy metal music. Do bands like Faith No More, Nine Inch Nails, Living Colour, and Janes Addiction fit the bill or am in the minority with my thinking they do? Any way what bands would you suggest?

If you make a Hard Rock/Heavy Metal playlist, then you shouldn't have to worry

Love to see Brother Jamez weigh in on this one. He's forgotten more about metal than I'll ever know.

They were both just Paraphrasing The Duke.

Maybe a conversation they had over a smoke. Chris Hillman and Emmylou talk about it in the Gram Parson's tribute video.

As to the question at the beginning of the thread, I've always considered the bands listed as in the Alternative category, but how hung up one wants to get on specific categories and subgenres is up to the individual, I suppose.

Funk metal? Hard rock? Alternative metal?

I always thought of Living Colour as hard rock, maybe funk-metal - like Electric Boys. You could get away with a Jane's tune like Mountain Song, Pigs in Zen, or Whores. Faith No More was played on Headbangers Ball a lot so I think many people consider them metal - probably alt-metal. But there are so many sub-genres of metal you need a score card. If it's got some power and aggression behind it, it will fit the bill.

NIN is considered Industrial but even that isn't a cohesive genre. Velvet Underground has been called Industrial music. Anyway, they all have songs heavy and crunchy enough to be considered some type of metal so why not?

Are you doing this for radio or something? Just don't use "Open Letter (To A Landlord)" or "Jane Says" - you know, the ballady stuff, unless you're doing bad boy ballads or something.

Hard Rock ... tones of Heavy Metal

Funk stuff came a little later


I suppose

Doing this for fun was just in a metal mood today.

Aint that the truth. The subgenres of all types of music are just insane. Take the aforementioned Faith No More. I've heard of them referred to as Rap Metal, while a band like Suicidal Tendencies is referred to as Rapcore.

Here's how Wikipedia describes them....

Faith No More - "Hailed as one of the most influential metal/rock bands of the
late 80's and early 90's and credited with inventing "Alternative Metal," and
as an influence on 'nu metal."

Living Colour- "Rock band; stylistically the band's music is a creative fusion influenced
by free jazz, funk, neo-psychedelia, hard rock and heavy metal."

Nine Inch Nails- "Industrial Rock."

Janes Addiction- "Alternative Rock."

Some of my favorites back in the day (when I regularly listened to that kind
of music) were: Iron Maiden, Metallica, Accept, Savatage, Anthrax,
Metal Church, Motorhead, Judas Priest, Ozzy/Sabbath, Venom, etc.

A friend of mine recently burned me a CD of the band Lamb of God,
entitled "Wrath." That is some intense sh*t.

Have both of them on this list, also added some hardcore bands like Bad Brains, Misfits, Dead Kennedy's. I guess it really isnt metal but to these ears it all fits together.

I've gotten whiplash rockin out to Mountain Song, Ted... Just Admit It, Three Days, Chip Away, so go right ahead and add it. Maybe slap the Pumpkins' Bury Me in there too.

loved seeing Bad Brains, they could lay down some wicked hardcore > funky reggae > yardcore and not even mis a beat. Suicidal is now rapcore?!?!? put on the first record and skate!!

F the Skins!

everything is subjective


stuff us young musicians called "metal" in the 70's is consudered hard rock tody.....go figure

As far as the question at hand.....I'd go song by song rather than by band. Like my reference to the 70's, bands may have tunes that catergory them a s being metal. Yet that isn't all they do. Also stretch your boundries and "TRY" some bands you'd usually never consider listening to.

IMHO a band that paints a pretty broad stroke of metal is Megadeth. From thrash to commercial friendly music. Lots of melody, a bit of jazz on the earlier stuff. Speed, politics, personal life eperiences and lots of atitude.

I would not call those bands metal, although maybe loosely speaking they fit in there somewhere.

Some metal bands I like to listen to alot are Grand Magus and Orange Goblin. Alabama Thunder Pussy is one of my favorites too. Graveyard and Karma To Burn were two of my favorites this past year as well. I recommend those bands very highly. Those would be what most people consider "stoner metal". Out of any music category, metal by far has the most subgenres so I'm sure that Janes and Faith No More and NIN and Living Colour could fit in there somewhere in the opinion of some.
