Just that! *smile*
...We Buddhists must find the courage to leave our temples and enter the temples of human experience, temples that are filled with suffering. If we listen to Buddha, Christ, or Gandhi, we can do nothing else. The refugee camps, the prisons, the ghettos, and the battlefields will become our temples. We have so much work to do. ... Peace is Possible! Step by Step. - Samtach Preah Maha Ghosananda "Step by Step" http://www.ghosananda.org/bio_book.html

BUT! it is important to become a real Buddhist first. Like Punna did: Punna Sutta Nate sante baram sokham _()_

I feel compelled to add some Black Sabbath, the godfathers of heavy metal:

Greetings Luke,

I'm not a big fan of Black Sabbath, though I do grant that Paranoid is a very good song. One of the bands I listed earlier, Inspiral Carpets, did a very good cover of Paranoid. The Cardigans, who featured early on in the countdown covered Iron Man (and maybe Paranoid as well)... and one band who has yet to be announced in the countdown actually did a cover of the song, Black Sabbath.

Are you referring to Type O Negative?

Yuh. Okay, then like they say in Monty Python, "And now for something completely different..."

This countdown of yours is a long journey, and perhaps we require some muffins, presented in the style of the glorious rock and roll tradition, to sustain ourselves over its duration:

Hey, that's an interesting find! I'd call it metal both because of its musical style (the double time part which starts at about 1:56 sounds like aggressive mosh pit music) and because of its lyrical content (witches!). I think that song could sound great if a modern metal band covered it using modern equipment.

But I think all rock/metal goes back to Chuck Berry. He wrote "Johnny B. Goode" in 1958. Chuck was the spirit of rock and roll all in one man.

Edit: Holy crap! Chuck is still alive! Long live Chuck!
