You've got it wrong, man!

If you "force" the kids to listen, you're going to turn them away. Plain and simple. The kind of music that I was forced to listen to growing up was jazz and oldies, so turning to metal was out of rebellion for what was imposed upon me!! If you want to sell something to the younger (predominantly male) audience... "making" them listen to a certain kind of music will only succeed in making them want to listen to something else. They've got to come upon it by themselves.

As far as keeping metal underground, yeah, I said it. I said it because I don't like when things become trendy. And when that happens, three things occur:

1. Songs get over-played and then, once that happens, they get played some more.

2. The market gets flooded with bands that are in it only for the money. For every one band that's in it for the right reasons, there are 6 or 7 that are in it for the wrong ones. (Remember all the crappy glam metal bands trying to be the next Poison or GNR?)

3. As trends have a life expectancy of a Hollywood marriage, most bands end up losing their record deals once the life cycle of the "trend" is completed. Majors pull their support, leaving bands label-less and disillusioned. Often, the band's next move is a crushing breakup, an ill-advised style change or a nasty bout of 9-to-5 at the gas station.

F*ck you for calling me a thread-killer, by the way.
