Members of Guns N’ Roses, Slipknot, Dimmu Borgir, The Black Dahlia Murder and More Reveal the Album to Which They Lost Their Virginity


Depending on the degree to which you are unhealthily obsessed with your favorite metal musician, this may qualify as TMI or the intel you’ve been waiting for: Metal Hammer asked members of bands like Guns N’ Roses, Slipknot, and The Black Dahlia Murder to reveal which album was playing the first time they had sex. They even got the musicians to include some memories of the experience. It’s a, uh, interesting read.

I won’t give them all away here, but some of the highlights are below (unsurprisingly, Trevor Strnad had the funniest one):

Slash (Guns N’Roses) — Fleetwood Mac’s Rumours

“I nearly first had sex to Aerosmith’s Rocks… I’d been courting this girl for months, finally got in her apartment while her mom was away and she put it on. I played it over and over until she said, ‘You might as well go!’ Usually, it’s the girl’s music that you end up having sex to. So it was probably something like Rumours which was very popular with the girls back then!”

Corey Taylor (Slipknot/Stone Sour) — Depeche Mode’s 101

“It was a Depeche Mode live album. It was right after it had come out and I was dating a girl who was really into them. I was into them but that album − or it could have been the sex − really made me turn the corner with them. I’ll put my hand up as a Depeche Mode fan after that one! Ha ha!”

Silenoz (Dimmu Borgir) — Elvis Crespo’s Suavamente

“It was some kind of salsa – the cool South American stuff. This guy sings merengue, a kind of music from Puerto Rico. You’re not gonna put on Cannibal Corpse or anything. Imagine it – Entrails Ripped From A Virgin’s Cunt! Ha ha ha!”

Trevor Strnad (The Black Dahlia Murder) — The Ramones’ Rocket to Russia

“It was over fast! A good two minutes, just like a Ramones song.”
