    But you're also wrong on one point. Nobody can dislike Babymetal. That is the greatest band around and they have the greatest music videos. What's not to like?

Hahahaha! Yeah, I like the idea behind the whole thing, but that's me.

One can say Iron Maiden is the greatest band around (there are lots of avid fans here in my country). I don't like Maiden at all, and got into a fight once because of that.

Interesting story about that. My boss is Bosnian and was telling me the story of how during the siege of Sarajevo, Iron Maiden was one of the only bands that came to play, where they were already loved. He said they almost worship Bruce Dickenson as an idol there now. There was a great article about it all too. I'll loop you in when I post it.
