It's amazing how one can fall into a deep melting pot of different genres of music. However, sometimes mixing is not for the better. Though it is my own opinion, I feel one shouldn't enjoy Goth Metal and Britney Spears at the same time. It may have long-term effects on brain wave patterns. And not in a good way.
Though I stick mainly to metal and hair bands, I have occasionally enjoyed a country or pop song. I hate Backstreet Boys, yet think *N'Sync isn't half bad. I think Faith Hill bites big weiner but Shania Twain owns.
Despite the fact the "opposite" of hair bands (Motley Crue, Poison, Whitesnake, etc.) was considered metal (Metallica, Pantera, Black Sabbath, etc.), I feel they are nearly the same. One genre cross-dressed, one doesn't. Big whoop. One genre plays quick and hard, the other plays slower and softer. Hurrah. But still, if not for hair bands, metal would never had occured. Why so, Tyrant? Easy. Hair bands pissed people off so much that hardcore men and women decided to blow it away with something fast, hard, and distorted.
Metallica is a good example of a group of hardcore people that despised hair bands. They had hair, but not stuck up with hairspray. They decided "man, I hate those pussy hair bands" and started ripping out power chors, solos, and some distorted candy.
More elaboration next time.
