Welcome to “Question of the Week,” a (sometimes) weekly debate amongst the MetalSucks staff regarding a recent hot button issue.
This week, in honor of Labor Day, we asked our writers:
WHAT’S THE ULTIMATE HEAVY METAL BBQ MUSIC?
The MS staff’s answers after the jump.
There should be absolutely no debate about the fact that when any metalhead is out grillin’ and chillin’ the ultimate soundtrack is GRAVEYARD BBQ! My favorite Northeastern rednecks kick out the summertime jams better than anyone with their delicious concoction of southern-fried riffs, tasty blues guitar and delectable singalong hooks… about grilling. Shit, these guys probably even grill out in the cold Massatwoshits winter; in fact, I happen to know that they do. So when you whip out those dogs and burgers one last time this weekend make sure you have the soundtrack provided by dudes who GET IT.
The only correct answer to “What is the ultimate heavy metal [insert any type of event or activity here] music?” is “Pig Destroyer.” Puttin’ some dogs on the grill? Put some Pig Destroyer on the stereo. Getting married? Walk down the aisle to Pig Destroyer. Funeral? Pig Destroyer. Parole hearing? Pig Destroyer. Bris? PIG DE-FUCKING-STROYER. You can disagree with me, but you would be wrong.
Oceano, of course. Because they bring the beef!
Motorhead. It’s always been Motorhead + meat + beer with me and my friends. No need for a deep, analytical paragraph. Just Motorhead. Motorhead.
If I’m throwing a BBQ with my family and friend, I’m going to be busy as hell between cooking burgers, making sure Crazy Uncle Matt keeps his pants on, and convincing my drunk-ass brother not to hit on our cousin Katie, even if she is only our second cousin. I don’t have time to listen to people bitch about Cowboys From Hell or NOLA, both of which go wonderfully with cold beer and grease. So to keep people from going bat shit, as well as prevent borderline incest, I’m going to err on the side of classic hard rock and load the five-CD changer with the following:
- Ted Nugent’s Cat Scratch Fever
- AC/DC’s Let There Be Rock
- GN’R’s Appetite For Destruction
- Motorhead’s No Remorse
- Either ZZ Top’s Tres Hombres or Lynyrd Skynyrd’s Street Survivors
Okay, kiddies, now it’s your turn! Weigh in with your answer to the question of the week below.
