BILLY CORGAN AND I HAVE THE SAME FAVORITE PANTERA ALBUM
Billy Corgan’s contribution to the Dimebag Darrell Art Tribute “Six-String Masterpieces”
Well, well, well. As it turns out, when Billy Corgan isn’t engaged in a royal rumble of douchiness, he actually has pretty good taste in metal.
At least, that’s what his list of the “10 greatest heavy metal albums of all time” he compiled for Musicradar.com would lead me to believe.
Sure, The Stooges’ Funhouse really isn’t a metal album at all (which isn’t to say it’s not great, it’s just to say, y’know, c’mon), and, yes, I imagine a lot of people will scream bloody murder when they see which Slayer album he chose. (Hint: Billy says that “I thought Slayer could never top Reign In Blood. I was wrong. Dead wrong.”) But what is the internet for, if not insulting one another’s taste and needlessly criticizing celebrities we don’t know.
Read Corgan’s entire list here, then come back and argue about it in our comments section.
