    I used to see The Fray a lot around Denver back before they blew up.

    Although it was more by accident because they were opening for bands I did want to see that went nowhere.

    AFI, I once saw them play a show in a bowling alley in Chicago. I loved them in high school (Black Sails In The Sunset is absolute awesomeness), now they are getting a little bit glammy.

    Slipknot is fun, that's all. If I want real metal, I listen to something like Death or Bloodbath.
    Death is probably one of the best "real" metal bands of all time, atleast in my opinion.

    Dashboard Confessional, I'm a huge acoustic nut so I loved their old stuff the new stuffs not bad but I really prefer the acoustic early sound.

    Next after that would be switchfoot and then probably lifehouse. Though I probably like lifehouses new stuff more than anything they've done.

    However, you lose 10 e-metal points for liking slipknot and calling yourself a death metal fan.

    Except for emo. I think we can all pretty much agree that emo sucks.
    Chill out my man, I realize Slipknot doesn't actually "suck", as in there playing ability. My personal opinion is that the music they make it terrible.

    BTW, the emo "genre" REALLY sucks!!!

    System of a Down.

    I liked them before they got big, and I was blown away. Then they got big, and I was kind of surprised. I couldn't believe that their style (which is damn weird, even their biggest fans have to admit) was accepted by a larger audience.

    Then they did BYOB, which achieved incomprehensible popularity. Seriously, I don't get it. That song sucks.

    Then Serg went solo.

    I haven't bought anything since Toxicity.

    *shrug*

    At least I'll always have In Flames to myself, even though their most recent album went in a direction I didn't care for as much as their older stuff.

    HaHa I agree!! Slipknot SUUUUUUUUCKS, but I do realize it's all opinions. But still, Slipknot really does suck.

    Amon Amarth

    They're like a viking/folk Scandinavian band I liked until they sort of went mainstream.

    But there is such a thing as "mainstream metal." In that case, I'd say Lamb Of God has completely lost touch with their roots. I would say the same for Slipknot, but even with the changes they've made, they still know how to shred it.
