    aside from the fact that just about every whiney indie rock band since then has cited them as massive influences.... not much....

    That was good news to hear. Hopefully he can get them in line and focused. They were all over the place with St. Anger, which is why it turned out the way it did.

    Get the families out of the recording studio, let Hammett do his guitar solos, and no more Hetfield excuses about "my therapist told me I have to leave at 5", then maybe we'll have something good on our hands.

    Yeah, maybe their original sound wasn't "true". Maybe they "evolved" into the truth and became what they were supposed to, and wanted to be.

    I know there's a strong whiney contingent who do cite the Smiths as a big influence...but I can't remember who they are...anyone got any ideas?

    Good Topic! Carry on :D

    Metallica has seemed to survive the 80's and so did John Mellencamp along with Guns n' Roses.

    Slayer as well, one of the remaining Thrash Icons from the 80's. I only have Reign In Blood, I find a little Thrash goes a long way for me.

    Echo & the Bunnymen are like the Energizer Bunny. They in fact filled a concert hall in Toronto last night!
