Even as a young wild lad, i could never get into Heavy Metal. After hearing Mozart, John Lee Hooker, Jimi Hendrix, The Stones & The Beatles i just couldn’t find the attraction. 
Zeppelin & Deep Purple are as Heavy as i like it…

Never got into Sabbath swyl?

I love that 70s heavy rock, Sabbath, Deep Purple, Led Zep, St Vitus, Pentagram, Motorhead almost heavy blues rather than heavy rock.

Early Metallica are outright classics too but a progression to the faster 80s metal - Kill Em All, Ride the Lightning, Master of Puppets, ...And Justice For All all classics from start to finish.

No, most of it was to fast for me, and i never took to the Primal Heavy Metal vocal style. 
i tried for a long time. I worked in a Record Shop in ‘81-‘82 part time, so I heard a lot of it. But i was more a Blues man. 
The Who could get seriously heavy at times, love them

Who else thinks heavy metal should be excluded from Triple J rotation? I feel like it just gets in the way of me complaining about all the other [censored] music they play now that I'm closing in on the age of needing my prostate checked.

It’s funny you say that, I do not listen to any of those classics you mention above. Except a little Motörhead but I don’t love them. First four Metallica of course are timeless classics.

For me as a kid, at 5 my sister introduced me to AC/DC, then Motley Crüe, Billy Idol, (sister is 5 years older)1984 comes along and Metallica drop Ride the Lightening, I’m hooked, Slayers Reign in blood in 86, then the death metal Grincore got really going and there was no going back. 
Over the teenage years I got into punk and early rap before moving onto 50-60’s Jamaican Reggae and northern soul. 
which of course brings you into the mod scene and the Who as @Sir Why You Little mentions above. A lot of great music out there it’s all down to what your ears like! 😁

… and you should seek it out. Coz if you don’t, you’ll only ever have the same old same old and the ‘top 40’ (including winners of Australian Idol and The Voice) to listen to.

I've always felt disappointed, even sad, for anybody too young to see Robbie Flower play. Having read this thread, I now have a second reason to feel disappointed. Anyone too young for Robbie Flower is also too young to know The Beatles in their prime. I've tried to explain the influence on contemporary music and the seven glorious years of Beatlemania to my children and they just don't understand. All the discussion comparing metal bands in this thread is rather like discussing the merits of Neitz versus Schwarz when Robbie Flower towers over them majestically.

Maybe they just don’t like The Beatles. 

I don’t. Nor do I like The Rolling Stones. Same goes with a whole host of bands that everyone is expected to like. And I’ve been howled down many times for this which is ridiculous because one can’t force oneself to like certain music.

Reminds me of that guy in the 80s who sang “Gonna write a classic…” (spoiler- he didn’t). 

Adrian Gurvitz ... he did in fact write that song.

To continue the demons type theme, he was in a band called The Gun who had a hit with Race With the Devil. It was covered by Girlschool, Judas Priest and no doubt others.

That's quite possible. Musical tastes change and what seemed cutting edge at its time now might seem passe. But the experience of living through The Beatles era was extraordinary. And they were prolific. Thirteen albums were released between 1963 and 1970 and every one of them from 1964 onwards was an event which shifted music forward.

The 2022 Remix of “Revolver” arrives next weekend. Can’t wait. 
“Rain” & “Paperwork Writer” are also remixed. It was such a shame they weren’t part of the original album

I'm down with all forms of music and musical expression

except most country music. It has a very whiney, formulaic quality to it. Maybe there's a country music fan on the forum that can explain or enlighten me regarding the attraction of country music.

The First 2 Records i ever heard were The Rolling Stones “Big Hits (High Tide and Green Grass) & The Beatles “Rubber Soul” They are like family!!!

I just couldn’t imagine not liking them. 
Both Bands were just extraordinary. The Stones rocked hard for 20 years. Keith is still vertical!!!

When playing in my old band at some dodgy place in Ascot Vale, the 'crowd' had reduced to zero at one stage. While the guitarist was playing an excessively long solo, the singer wandered off (mid song) for a toilet break, and returned to the stage to participate in the completion of the song.

Quite clearly the Blues were the A Team and the Whites were the possibles. Some interesting faces in the white Team h

    TOUGH KENT'S TRAINING REPORT I journeyed out to Casey today and was fortunate enough to watch two quarters of match simulation. Here is a brief rundown of random occurrences/thoughts. First of all, there was no Jake Lever (ankle) or Joel Smith involved. AMW is still in rehab and was running strongly. It was Blue (Probables) v Red (Possibles) JvR was in blue. Ben Brown, T-Mac, Hibbo and Tom Sparrow were in red. Gus Brayshaw started at half back for blue and stayed there all game.
