"The Metal" as written by Thomas Jacob Black, Kyle Richard Gass, John S Konesky and John King....
Talking

(JB) You can't kill the metal
The metal will live on
Punk-Rock tried to kill the metal
But they failed, as they were smite to the ground
New-wave tried to kill the metal
But they failed, as they were striken down to the ground
Grunge tried to kill the metal Ha,ha,ha,ha,ha,ha
They failed, as they were thrown to the ground
(argh ... yea!) x2

Singing

(Both)No-one can destroy the metal
The metal will strike you down with a vicious blow
We are the vanquished foes of the metal
We tried to win for why we do not know

(JB) New-wave tried to destroy the metal, but the metal had its way
Grunge then tried to dethrone the metal, but metal was in the way
Punk-rock tried to destroy the metal, but metal was much too strong
Techno tried to defile the metal, but techno was proven wrong
Yea!

Metal!
It comes from hell!

    General Comment"hm, didnt grunge actually kill metal? y'know... nirvana? i thought they killed hair metal."

    Hair metal is a farce. I'm glad it's dead. He's talking about REAL heavy metal. Pantera and others didn't die when Nirvana came along because they were great metal bands, not flashy bullshit hair metal. And while grunge is now dead, metal still lives on.

    I love how cheesy this song is and how it's backed by a classic heavy metal guitar riff. And its lyrics are very true. Metal has its down periods but always maintains a steady flow of underground fans to keep it alive. Long live metal!

    General CommentI loved the SNL version of this song better. They had people dressed as the genres. LOL. The "Metal" was a giant metal warrior who beat the shit out of everyone on stage. "SLOW MO!"

    General CommentHAHAHAHA PUNK ROCK BETTER THAN FACE MELTINGFUCKING METAL?!?!?! Wow dude. That's some sad shit. This song is completely true. Since it's first true dawning with Led Zeppelin (The Beatles were the first with their song "Helter Skelter, but it didn't get as much credit as the Zep), metal has destroyed everything that has walked in it's path. And to say that the three worst genres of music (I would take rap over punk rock any day) is a disgrace to the metal. Long live metal, and long live the D!
