All these new genres and sub-genres of heavy metal/rock just do my tits. Personally anything with a good, heavy rock or blues sound is my kind of stuff and AC/DC is the dogs bollocks. It is one of the few bands I can listen to regardless of my mood or frame of mind, and still totally enjoy the experience.
I was a teenager when Iron Maiden, another great band, brought out "Live After Death" and was exposed to all sorts of musical influences. Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple etc, right through to bands like Slayer and Napalm Death. A lot of the bands are still popular now and AC/DC is still one of my all time favourite bands. If you haven't listened to them, then I strongly recommend that you do.
