Here's a more long distance pace appropriate selection, but still big on badassery. PS - I've probably said before how much I love the fem-fronted hardcore bands - there are many of them that are successful in Europe (play huge stadium festivals, sell lots of albums, etc.) but are not even known in the US, for whatever reason.

Not sure if I'm supposed to hate a 997.2 interior or not. I know the Porsche cool kids say it's the bombiest of bomb water cooled. But the interior is still Taurus-like, I believe.

And then the same cool kidz will turn around and complain the 991, has too many creature comforts and isn't pure enough.
You are a real driver out there not stroking the dash and counting cup holders.

LOL, yes !!
Interior too bare bones? Whining about cheap interior and no cup holders.
Interior too nice? Whining about too many features and loss of the purist driver's car.

What a great example of car guys being petulant hypocrites who don't even know what they want.

Car guys are fools.
That is the answer to all car guy paradoxes.

No doubt about that. The peeps here seem to only want rap, country, and pop . . .

Metallica and Kiss are 2 of the biggest grossing tours of 2019, across all genres.

Ha ha - nope!

I was in junior high and high school in the 1980's, and then in my early 20s in the early 90s and really liked the metal scene at the time (total, "every weekend at the metal bars" type) - never lost the taste for it, and in fact, like much harder/heavier music now than I did when I was young.

Guess some folks will still shell out for the oldies, but don't give two shiits about modern metal. It's unreal how many super heavy, metal bands there are in European countries, Asia and Russia. I'm just thankful for YouTube and Amazon - can find bands I like on YouTube and then buy their stuff on Amazon.

I wasn't into metal, but I liked Metallica. Everyone liked Metallica.

I saw them and GNR together. An odd mix of people too, preppie types (like yours truly) mixed in with hard core metal fans, stoners, you name it. Good times.

That brought back a memory - I saw Metallica play at a "ballroom" (essentially a big bar) in Omaha NE in 1986, before they were widely known. I believe that Ride the Lightning was just released, or was soon to be released, and they had some small-time fame with Kill em' All, but were still considered a fringe band. Armored Saint was the opener. I waited all day in line with friends, and we ended up standing right in front of the stage. What a blast!

Yeah, that's me fronting The Creeps, we were awful, but it was punk rock, and the drummer always had groupies!

That was me with Smashing Pumpkins. I saw them at a bar in '91 when nobody knew who they were. I kinda knew them, since I was into that scene, but they were largely unknown. Then a few week later, Gish was released and the rest was history.
