Old country songs from the '70's like "Funny Face" by Donna Fargo and "Why me, Lord?"
Garbage
Paul McCartney and Wings (Band on the Run and before only)
...

argh

The list could go on forever.

I'm either eclectic or unselective.

Oh, and I like Scottish bagpipe music too ;)
We're like 2 peas in a pod...

I like everything you put up there and I'll add a few:

techno/euro-dance
celtic/irish
Boston
The Clash
U2
The Beetles

I just discovered I really like that beer for my horses song from toby keith. Maybe I like country music and didn't know it. /shrug

Boston! The Clash!

A bit of Celtic/Irish -- yeah, I can dig it. Just don't try to make
me watch "Lord of the Dance" like my brother-in-law did!

You got it -- a bit of everything.

I saw the Clash in concert at New Orleans. Real down-home kind of people, really. Very friendly performance to a fairly small crowd.

Never thought my appreciation for Boston would grow, but it has.
Groovy guitar riffs.

On the other hand, I can't stand to hear Aerosmith anymore -- especially the latest stuff. Hard to believe that troll gave birth to a beautiful daughter ... ;)

Real metal.

hey, metal was stagnating (rusting?) until Pantera came along and kicked some A...... but Vulgar Display and Far Beyond Driven were all that I listened to of them. I'm kinda jaded. I really don't buy new stuff anymore, I still keep my ears open though, especially since nowadays you can find some halfway decent radio. When I was a teen, nobody wanted to listen to metal, it was too evil. No white kids would listen to rap. Nobody skated. Nobody wanted tattoos. But now all that stuff is trendy. I hate trendy. I hate trends. And I want to kill all trendoids! And please take that GD cellphone off your ear! And who wants to F-up a perfectly good toungue by piercing it? Come on!!! I have issues. by the way.....Black Sabbath are The Godfathers of ALL Metal. I feel better now.

Metal.

Just saying, Sabbath set the precedent. They were the first. Yeah, Jimi was good, LZ too, but Sabbath set the precedent for HEAVY. Tony Iommi palm-muted his way all over the place. Chug-chug-chug. That's supposed to represent a guitar sound. GhostSoldier. Yeah, Slayer gets props. South of Heaven is a classic.

Even though they were later how about Angel of Death, Raining Blood and Postmortem. Also since their first album came out in the 80's would you consider Metallica one of the godfathers of metal?

Just to add something, Slayer and Metallica were around long before i was born. I was born in '87 so i was young when i picked them up probably around 7 or 8 when i started listening to them.

I know. I'm not picking. It's the bands like Winger and Poison that I can't stand. GS.

For myself, Metallica had been out for about 3 or 4 years before they actually had enough of a reputation that I decided to check them out. Before them it was Motley Crue, W.A.S.P., Iron Maiden, etc. But when I heard Metallica, I was like, "now this is what Metal should sound like!" I also started to check out hardcore, thrash, etc. Then I explored the roots. All the way back to the blues, baby. It's all good. GS.

Iron Maiden

Unless I missed it, no one listed Iron Maiden. Good metal plus interesting song topics. I think I learned more about history, mythology, and literature from them then I learned at school during my junior high years.

The Trooper-Crimean War, based on Carge of the Light Brigade
Two Minutes to Midnight-Cold War
Where Eagles Dare-based on the commando movie of the same name
Aces High-Battle of Britain
Run to the Hills-both sides of the American Indian wars of Western expansion
Alexander the Great-about Alexander, inacurate saying that he wouldn't go to India though.
Mother Russia-suffering of the Russian people throughout time
Tailgunner-titled was inspired by a porn movie about, well take a guess, but subject is about WW II air combat (again).

And the list could go on.

Metallica and Slayer may have had a few songs about war or history, but Iron Maiden made a career out of it. Currently, I guess Iced Earth is in the same vein. Haven't heard them though.

IRON MAIDEN!!!

And what a formidable geetar duo, not to mention drums and bass. Where Eagles Dare is one of my FAVORITE all-time songs. The whole Piece of Mind album is one of the top ten best albums of all time. I don't care who sez what. Nope, don't care. Don't care at all. GS.
