    Resurrection!

    I can't stand songs that are about metal or rock, or have "metal" or "rock" in the titles. Metal this, metal that, rocking this or that. There are obviously exceptions, but mostly in early stages of metal. Most of the new stuff is terrible and cheesy. Like Helloween's "Are You Metal" which I was listening to few minutes ago and which inspired me to post this.

    Metal Gods being at least one exception I hope?

    Yeah, Priest is an exception to the rule. Metal Meltdown is also cool.

    Cheesy crap: Heavy Metal Universe and To The Metal by Gamma Ray and Sabaton's Metal songs.

    Prejudice part is that when I wanna check out something new and see that the band has stupid titles about metal / rock and nothing else, I pretty much just skip it. It's unoriginal and boring.

    Y u no like Metal Crue? :'(

    I've never liked to see 'rock' in the title of a song, though.

    I like Metal Crüe. I think songs with rock/metal in the title are fun as long as they don't take themselves to seriously. When Helloween and Gamma Ray do it it just feels like yet another Judas Priest ripoff.

    I couldn't agree more. I absolutely despise this. It sucks because a lot of classic metal albums (Kill Em All) have a few songs like this and they are instantly my least favourite songs just because of the subject matter.

    Bump.

    I don't wanna listen to an album that has one song title for all songs, just with different numbers at the end. Example: this band who only uses titles like that <_<

    I tend to agree, except with Fates Warning A Pleasant Shade of Grey, which is absolutely brilliant.

    Actually, that was the first one that came to mind with NP's post. I get that they wanted to stress that it's a single piece, but if they were going to track parts separately it would've helped to give them real names. Otherwise they should've gone the Green Carnation route and just make it one track.

    Yeah, ideally I would love each track to have a name (at least a subtitle), but it's not going to deter from my enjoyment of the piece.

    Well I don't really like it that much to begin with, but there are certain moments throughout that I enjoy and would listen to more if I knew what they were called.

    I don't like 1 track albums. It's OK if the songs sequence into each other but one long 60 min track or whatever really puts me off from listening to it....

    Just thought of one:
    Metallica songs with Unforgiven in the title.

    Any band with a name derived from Tolkien.
