It's not that people don't like those songs, but it's obvious that a lot of fans either aren't familiar with them or are just catching a breather until the next more "popular" Slayer song kicks in.
A decent amount of them are probably unaware of the fact that Show No Mercy and Hell Awaits exist.
At least that's how it was for me when I first started listening to Slayer when I was about 13 or so. I thought Reign In Blood was their first album.
