The Metal God commands you
to listen to The Beatles.

1. SLAYER “Raining Blood” — “Just because it’s so sick and intense and just rips your face off.”

2. RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE “Bulls On Parade” — “They were the first band to create that kind of groove, and I like their socio-political statements.”

3. LED ZEPPELIN “Whole Lotta Love” — “To me, they are the premier hard rock/heavy metal band that really started the early type of vibes of heavy metal. The riff, [sings] ‘dun-dun dun-dun-dun’, it’s just remarkable.”

4. BLACK SABBATH “Black Sabbath” — “It’s probably the most evil song ever written.”

5. THE BEATLES “Across The Universe” — “It’s just the essence and the vibe of the song — it’s very transcendental. The tone, the melody and the atmosphere is just very, very special. Without The Beatles, rock ‘n roll wouldn’t be where it is today.”
