Jim & Greg should do a show devoted to death metal, or is NPR too much of a pussy outlet to okay it?

And maybe 95% of listeners would turn off. Good idea.

Do A Show About Death Metal


While you're at it, do a show about polka. And what the hell, you know who really deserves a tribute show? Donny Osmond.

God, I'd love to hear it, but, yeah, it would never happen and isn't a great idea on NPR. They did do a metal show back on WXRT where they played Dark Tranquillity and Opeth, but I doubt they could even get away with that anymore!

Spoken like a man who's clearly never heard an Opeth, Carcass, Death, In Flames or Dark Tranquillity album. Sorry to sound again like "the DJDee of metal," but this sort of uniformed mentality continues to bug me.

Death metal ain't just Cannibal Corpse anymore, dude. But, yeah, I agree, its probably not a good show idea. But its a better one than having Clap Your Fucking Hands Say Fucking Yeah We're Overrated Indie Hypes on.

i've heard more than one Opeth album, and i must say that i was not impressed. Still, to each his own.

What a weird thing to request, considering you said this a few hours later:

When it comes to metal, Slayer is all you need to know ;)

There's been so much fragmentation of and cross polination between different styles of Metal that SO could easily do a show about some of the darker genres without using anything offensive. And how could NPR consider itself inclusive while excluding Metal stylistically? They're too Liberal (in a mnice way) to allow themselves to exclude it unless SO tries to use patently offensive songs.

Agreed.

They might be able to do a show on the Tolkin metal/opera metal stuff but that probably be as far into the depths of metal they'll go unless they do a tribute to great 80's metal that's not hair/glam.

I thought you would have known Stylus and Pitchfork are giving death metal decent scores now...it's COOL TO LIKE METAL!


Seriously though, I think a death metal show per se would be a bad idea in that its too constrictive a label. Metal always gets a raw deal because people just think Motley Crue/Def Leppard hair metal, or Korn nu-metal, or in some other way corner it into a label. So why not just focus on "dark music" or "heavy music" and play everything from Opeth to ISIS to Boris to Katatonia...etc.?
