Dont' get me wrong, I like each of them but I would never put any of those bands, and several of the others on the list, into either of those categories.

I'm not trying to be contrary here Drum, but seriously am asking the question, where does pop music end and Hard rock or metal begin? I guess, like everything else, there is no black and white but there is just no way, in my mind at least, that these bands represent Metal in any form or fashion.

Just my own observation...
I am deluded enough to think I can bring something to the table - Huey Lewis.
