If you don't like Anvil, you don't like real heavy metal.

Listen to their song "Free as the wind." It will make anyone proud to be a metalhead.

Anyone who opposes Anvil will get their thumbs hanged.

Everyone is entitled to their opinion but I honestly don't get all the hate for Anvil. I thought the movie was really good but it seems like what a lot of you got out of it was:
"why don't people care about us anymore? aren't we entitled to be rich and famous cause we're in a band "
I saw the movie as an inspirational story about two guys who would never give up no matter how shitty things got. I enjoy some of Anvil's music and it seems to me like people only hate on them cause of the movie.

^ Forget about the movie for 1 second and tell me, is this really that shitty?

Well then I guess I don't like metal. Thank you for making me realize the last 23 years i've spent listening to metal was for nothing since I don't like Anvil. That documentary may as well been made for maiden33's band. They probably got a bigger following than Anvil at this point.

That is definitely one of Anvil's best! The main riff of that song reminds me of Iron Maiden and the song has non-stop soloing

They actually do have some great songs, they're just all on different albums
