Mass prediction, unification
Breathing life into our lungs
Every creed and every kind
To give us depth for strength
Taught when we're young to hate one another
It's time to have a new reign of power
Make pride universal so no one gives in
Turn our backs on those who oppose
Metal was certainly big in my privileged upper-middle-class circle of friends in high school and college and I continue to know high pay professionals that listen to it. A huge part of the scene caters to teenage rebellion against parental norms.
If I found out that Slayer or Motorhead were as ideologically compromised as Pantera seems to be, I would stop listening to them in a second, no matter how much I love Reign in Blood and Ace of Spafes.
gwint: "I love Slayer and although they've stated time again how their fascination with Nazism and Nazi iconography has nothing to do with Nazi ideology, sometimes I have to wonder. I sure do love Motorhead, but boy did Lemmy like those Iron Crosses. Ezra Pound, Heidegger, and on and on. Where does the person end and the art begin?"
