[/quote]
I think people lump them together because they are only SUB-genres. Heavy Metal is the genre while Death/Black, thrash, speed, melodic, power, symphonic, epic, etc etc are only variations, not genres of their own. As for the Next question

What is The Son of Sam's real name?

oh, my bad, I thought you said they lumped them together because they didn't know better, like a lot of people think all latin americans are Mexican when of course that's bullshit, so I misread your post. You didn't answer the question though... anybody?

That's just my excuse for not knowing the answer. [!--emo&^_^--][img src=\'style_emoticons/[#EMO_DIR#]/happy.gif\' border=\'0\' style=\'vertical-align:middle\' alt=\'happy.gif\' /][!--endemo--] I know who The Son of Sam is but I never learned his real name.

No one has gotten it yet. Maybe my question was a bit tough so here are some not-so-helpful hints:

>James and Joseph were the closest so far.
>My full first name has 7 letters.
>My shortened first name has 4 letters.
POSSIBLE SPOILER:
>It's not any of the above names.

I think it's Christopher Lee, right?

Try this: No movie has ever won all four acting Oscars (best actor and actress, best supporting actor and actress) but there are two movies that won 3 out of 4. Name them.
