Thanks to all who voted, some interesting results. Special thanks to JJ and Glenn especially, who did all the hard stuff. Thanks guys!

Henry, JJ & I are sharing the duties.
This track scraped in at the last moment with about the 2nd last ballot, but it's the perfect opener.

Nope, this album was kinda a one off. It's classic stuff though.

I think this might be something called britpop but I am only 14 months old so I might be missing some nuances. Can't help but notice that no one in this video is the devil or worshiping him, which is a problem.

Okay, I've never heard any MSP album post-Generation Terrorists, which I could imagine might have been eligible for inclusion here, but that Motorcycle Emptiness song is not metal, not heavy. Not even particularly hard. In fact, it's pretty flimsy. I scowl at whoever nominated and voted for this shit.

Johnny Fever, Tuesday, 3 August 2010 01:03 (seven years ago) Permalink

It's off the 1st album.

pfunkboy (Herman G. Neuname), Tuesday, 3 August 2010 01:04 (seven years ago) Permalink

Johnny Fever, Tuesday, 3 August 2010 01:05 (seven years ago) Permalink

really? it's their big song from it, probably their best song. It's a fucking classic slice of 90s britrock.

Anyway time for one more and its METAL

Henry Kvlt Pvp, Tuesday, 3 August 2010 01:08 (seven years ago) Permalink

I'm a rare American fan of the Manics, and Motorcycle Emptiness is indeed a fine song. But it doesn't belong anywhere near a list of the 100 greatest metal/heavy rock songs of all time.

kornrulez6969, Tuesday, 3 August 2010 01:09 (seven years ago) Permalink

I just looked and the running order of that album is a little different in the US than in the UK. "Motorcycle Emptiness" was buried in the second half of the album and, since I had it on cassette, I got in the habit of only listening to the first side.

Johnny Fever, Tuesday, 3 August 2010 01:09 (seven years ago) Permalink

No arguments over #97

pfunkboy (Herman G. Neuname), Tuesday, 3 August 2010 01:12 (seven years ago) Permalink

I'll sheepishly admit to never having known Am I Evil was a cover when Metallica did it.

Johnny Fever, Tuesday, 3 August 2010 01:13 (seven years ago) Permalink

tbf to metallica, they did their best to raise the profile of Diamond Head.

pfunkboy (Herman G. Neuname), Tuesday, 3 August 2010 01:14 (seven years ago) Permalink

From here on out I am just going to switch "Good Dog!" with "AM YOU EVIL?" in the same approving voice and i bet H does not notice and will in fact react with his usual floppy-headed smiling. also it will amuse me

CHEESECAKE VOTING FRUIT HATING SCUM (jjjusten), Tuesday, 3 August 2010 01:15 (seven years ago) Permalink

"Am I Evil" is a fucking incredible number, and shd be top 10 material!
I saw them live, when they were on their way out, as "Canterbury" was failing to sell in the shops, they gave it their all & were terrific, "Am I Evil" was the encore. I wish they'd made it, they were such a damn good band.

"Motorcycle Emptiness" is OK for a manics track, but shouldn't be in a list of heavy rock tracks. Baffled by its inclusion

Totally agree that the magnificent "Motorcycle Emptiness" has no business being anywhere near this poll. I could see the argument for "Slash and Burn", maybe, but even that seems like you're really just being difficult. Somebody defend this. Your votes will be revealed at the end, so don't think you can just hide. (Except, of course, I didn't vote, so who cares what I think!)

CHEESECAKE VOTING FRUIT HATING SCUM (jjjusten), Tuesday, 3 August 2010 03:54 (seven years ago) Permalink

Can't remember if I voted 'Motorcycle Emptiness' or not, but pretty sure I nominated it - mostly on the basis that it's the best thing from the first album, which was at the very least an attempt at a metal album (the second one is definitely within the aesthetic). If I can vote for 'Wind of Change' or 'Don't Cry', I ought to be able to vote for this. And I can't vote for those, then it's not a poll I'm going to be particularly interested in.

Ismael Klata, Tuesday, 3 August 2010 07:01 (seven years ago) Permalink

Haven't checked them yet - I'm doing this on the phone. 'Kick Out The Jams' was #51 on my ballot iirc, so pleased to see I didn't scupper it.

Algerian Goalkeeper (Odysseus), Sunday, 11 February 2018 17:11 (one week ago) Permalink

I don't think there's that much enthusiasm for that unfortunately. I usually find it hard to pick out/remember individual tracks personally, probably a result of listening to too much album-based introverted prog gubbins. I'd be interested in what someone with a more populist taste in metal could come up with, there's got to be some bangers from the last few years.

Ha, mine's very dissatisfactory to me but I tried to get an even-ish spread of years. It's basically all long bm tracks and a power-pop song in sludge clothing. Will check out the things on yours I haven't heard but the rest already has my approval, mostly.

imago, Sunday, 11 February 2018 19:01 (one week ago) Permalink

well, we could have a month long noms period where we listen to things we like and then nominate the tracks we like best.

Perhaps we could allow a sort of unlimited nominations in that we can nominate as much as we want BUT each person can only nominate 1 song per album. If you ask others to nominate another thats fine though, lol

put it all on spotify then have a month long voting period to allow listening to tracks . The longer period i think would benefit a tracks poll unlike albums.

Maybe forks would help out with spotify as he's really good with that?
