I think you hit the nail right on the head. I like Andrew W.K. but your average Black Sabbath fan won't. I can remember seeing the Deftones open for Sabbath on the first reunion and the fans were HATING them. Pantera didn't get a very good reaction either. The fans under the age of twenty five were the only ones giving any love to those bands and I think that was maybe thirty percent of the crowd.
