I'd bet my paycheck that most of the big names haven't.

I tried to search all the threads I started but there are apparently too many because it won't return any threads earlier than 2009.

Good thinking! I forgot I could just search in Comm Intros for my threads. And you are right -- I did not do it. Oh well, its a tad late now.

Its the cover from an album by my favourite group "Rammstein" (a German heavy metal band).

The album is called Amerika. The guy in the pic is the lead singer, dressed as a stereotypical capitalist. The title song "Amerika" is a satirical piece about americanisation (in particular peoples resentment on how americanisms are eroding traditional ways), americas view on "freedom", and how they use thier political influence on the world.

You can see the band logo in the bottom right

they're not "pop metal" in the derogatory sense. they're generally considered "european industrial metal", and they're pretty badass.
pop metal != heavy metal

I especially like the line "This is not a love song" for those USAians too dense to catch up.

Re: Reputation comments, they are dance/industrial metal

Listening, listening, listening. Evaluation:
Where's the metal, all I hear is generic pop rock? And you can call it dance if you want.... industrial too, as in: mass produced.

Call it what you want.

if you think Ministry is pop metal, then ... yeah.

There's a band that actually qualifies as industrial metal. Not just a couple plinks on the drum and a few bleeps on a synth in the background(i.e. Rammstein).

Lets see how far off topic this thread will lead itself, today.

Listen to the song "Du hast" then compare it to the song "Zerstoren"

I saw an old Einstuerzende Neubauten movie - they were in an old warehouse and were playing a rusty iron spring, a shopping cart, some beat up shrouding, and some weird thing made from old tubes and potentiometers. That was INdustrial
