Talking about Diamond Head- Am I Evil?

My Friend: Dude this band did a cover of Metallica's song Am I Evil

me: What band?

him: Diamond Head

me: Dude, they did the original song and Metallica did the cover

him: No fucking way, This Diamond Head guy is a complete rip-off

me: (-_-) you're joking right?

him: NO!

me: go online and look that up.


2 hours later and im still waiting to hear back from him. Have you ever had a conversation that stupid?

I can understanding not knowing it's a Diamond Head cover if you are new to metal, but once someone tells you it is a Diamond Head cover just go look it up on line. Though he is stupid for saying that Diamond Head ripped off Metallica when you clearly told him that Am I Evil is originally a Diamond Head song.

Here's one that is very close as taken from my facebook, just a few hours ago:

A kid posts a video of a Parrot headbanging to Cannibal Corpse's Make Them Suffer, although it does not show the band name or title in the video or description.

Me: Please *kid's name*, please tell me you know who this is? I'll even give you money if you can figure it out.
Him: IDK, it sounds like Job For A Cowboy, who is it?
Me: Cannibal Corpse: Make Them Suffer.
Him: Sorry I don't listen to old bands I only like new music.
Me: Dude, the song came out in 2006. And besides how could you not like older Metal. Without it you wouldn't have your bands you listen to.
Him: It just doesn't appeal to me. I can't connect with it.
Me: Ok I'll let you have your way. I'm sure Job For A Cowboy will be bigger then Cannibal Corpse *Saying it sarcastically*
Him: Yeah, you're probably right.


Damn...

It's not a stupid conversation, just ignorant. and he probably hasn't responded because he felt like an ass upon discovering the truth, as he should.

That being said, Metallica's cover is better.:eyes:

It's not stupid at all. Hardly anyone knew who Diamond Head was back then let alone now. In fact Metallica used to play sets that were made up mostly of DH covers in their early days and people thought that the songs were Metallica's. That's how obscure Diamond Head was and continues to be. It's not stupid at all to think it's a Metallica song since they've done more with it than Diamond Head ever has.

With the internet today it should be easy to find out that Am I evil is a Diamond Head cover. I just assumed that was something every Metallica fan knew.

It's not stupid that he didn't know, it's stupid that he refused to recognize that he might be wrong, or believe someone else.

It's pretty stupid. It's pretty damn obvious that it's a cover... Even if you have no internet or anything and your only point of reference is the edition of Kill 'Em All with the two cover tracks. A simple flip through the booklet and, oh what's this? "Am I Evil?" (Tattler, Harris) Huh, maybe it's a cover?

I feel your pain. I once had to explain to my friend's stupid girlfriend that "Sailin' On" was not a No Doubt song, but them butchering the Bad Brains.

One time I was talking to my friend and the song "No More Mr Nice Guy" somehow came up.

Friend: Yeah I know that song, it's from family guy.
Me: :facepalm:, No it was a famous song well before it was on family guy.

The Next Day

Friend: I found out who made that song. Megadeth.
Me: :facepalm:

To be fair, I wouldn't have known that. They both suck.

Has anyone heard the song Mars by King Crimson? I swear Diamond Head stole the main riff from Mars and used it for Am I Evil.

How has someone never heard of Metallica, Ozzy,Slayer,Iron Maiden and Alice Cooper. I figured you come out of the womb knowing those bands.

No, you come out of the womb knowing all the Beatles songs because the government places chips in every childs head who was born after the breakup to make sure everyone knows all their songs:D

I would think it would be the same way from Metallica, Maiden and Sabbath.


I can understand not knowing those bands if you dont listen to rock and metal, but if you listen to rock and metal you know Sabbath, Maiden and Metallica.

Back in the day when GARAGE DAYS RE-REVISITED first came out, even though it was HEAVILY advertised as all covers, I knew many people in my high school who refused that those were non-originals.

some kid cudi wannabe dude at work was in the break room talking about how he was in the military in afghanistan when he decided to leave and come back home. he got caught by military police and sent to prison at fort knox. then he busted out by jumping out of a 3rd story window and ran through the woods wearing only those paper shower shoes until he flagged a cab driver down. the cab driver happened to be a cocaine dealer and drove him to mexico where he then snuck back in to the US and ended up in new jersey.

a couple people believed him.
