You have some good picks there, especially Leviathan and Powerslave. My favorite Maiden cover is either Killers or NOTB.

I don't feel like spending forever doing a GIS on all these covers, so I'll just say what my favorites are:

Dead Kennedys- In God We Trust, Inc.
Bad Religion- Suffer, The Empire Strikes First
AFI- Black Sails in the Sunset
The Clash- London Calling
Rage Against the Machine- s/t
None More Black- This is Satire
Pink Floyd- Animals
Rise Against- Revolutions Per Minute

That's about all I can think of right now.

Thanks for your concern. Even thought that was a real Scorpion's cover I think it is obnoxious and as The Law says if any of the mods do not feel comfortable but something we have any right to delete it.

Does that include "Red Foxx: You Gotta Wash Your Ass?":D

OH OKAY! And I thank you for being indifferent toward me. I just feel child pornography holds a higher penalty than bootleg concerts. Just looking out for the commune. Pictures of 12 year old girls being beaten up by ninjas, however, are not illegal by law or by The Law.

Don't you hate it? Jerks like hunters, warlocks, mages, etc. basically kick ass in every spec, but us tanks and healers are stuck in one spec that is only good at one thing and blows at everything else. So yeah, I've been doing the same thing as you.

Except I started a warlock to get revenge on how much priests suck now :(

I hate you for having a pally, btw. I had a heal-off with one of the level 70 pallies in my new guild, and his fucking Lay of Hands critted on me for 9400. His regular heals are massive too. My highest crit heal is a lousy 5600 :(

I'm new to raiding. This will be my third week in. It's amazing what a time suck it is. I'm not sure how long I'll do it. I'd like to see Kara cleared, but after that, I dunno. I'm in a new guild.

Oh no, I hear what you're saying. I just can't imagine doing this week after week for the next few months. How long are you raids? It seems like about 4-6 hours here. Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday. Right now I'm only doing about half of the days, because we're still getting our groups together (there's two full raid groups now, and another one or two forming within the guild for Kara.)
