The Vehicles of Heavy Metal, Classified
ClassicDatsunDebate last edited by ClassicDatsunDebate
- Motorcycles. Metal motorcycles seem even more impractical and bad than the normy ones:
- Cars (These seem to be very practical choices for Heavy Metal):
BOC's logo is much more Metal than they are, but I'll give them a pass this time...which doesn't mean Eliminator makes this list BTW. This a BOC specific exemption.
I know Snoop isn't Metal....but I have to remind everyone that he had a Datsun on one of his album covers.
- Tracked Vehicles:
- Trains. It seems that Diamond Head loves trains:
Original Painting titled Heavy Metal Hero
- Aircraft. This is a tricky one because apparently all Heavy Metal Motorcycles can also fly.
Eddie flying what is probably a Spitfire Mk. IXb by my reckoning.
I'm sure there are many more out there.

@classicdatsundebate hey! Don't forgot busses!
And I know you had motorcycles, but how about some sidecars ![alt text](

Also, the decal on the hood loses points for “Rock and Roll” instead of “Rock and Rollover”
Is an Angry Jeep grille metal?
@aestheticsinmotion I was going for Album art but your choices are solid!

I never really thought Painkiller was that good a song
@way2blu That is real commitment to a theme.

@classicdatsundebate The fact that those angry grilles are made of plastic instead of metal is a missed opportunity though hahhaha
@qaaaaa Agreed...I'm a "Everything before Turbo" Priest guy.
Having said that, Painkiller is such a dichotomy.....the song isn't good, but Halfords vocal performance is one of the greatest recordings in Metal...
@way2blu I was gonna make that joke but the fruit was tooooo low

@classicdatsundebate excellent work including Steel Panther.
The Diamond Head covers are pretty neat.
It seems like a horse/carriage category could easily be added.

@classicdatsundebate it’s an impressive vocal workout for him, but I don’t like the timbre his voice takes in that range. Freewheel Burning showcases his range a lot better IMO.
This is gonna sound odd, but I kinda prefer the first Fight album to most Priest stuff. It’s essentially a solo album for him without the necessary heavy commercial appeal the Halford stuff has. 2wo sucks though. Fun fact, one of the guitarists on that first album, Russ Parrish, who was a studio musician (I think) is better known as Steel Panther’s Satchel.
@just-a-scratch Totally. I kept horses, flying animals (obv) and robots off of this list.
@qaaaaa yeah, he gets up there...a la Screaming for Vengeance. His lower register songs like the stuff on Sad Wings or Point of Entry are killer.
