This could take a while. Loudwire has put together a slide show of 100 metal facts that often had me going “I did not know that.” For example:
- “Mantra,” a 2001 song from Tool, is bascially a slowed-down version of Maynard James Keenan squeezing his cat.
- This is Spinal tap is the only movie on IMDB to be rated 11 out of 10 stars.
- No one knows the identity of the woman on the cover of the first Black Sabbath album. She’s…vanished.
- Slayer’s Kerry King once bred show dogs.
- Speaking of which, System of a Down picked that name partially so they could be closer to Slayer in the record racks.
- When Lemmy wanted to kick drugs by having a complete blood transfusion like Keith Richards did, doctors refused, saying that his blood was so toxic, regular blood would probably kill him.
There’s much, much more here.
