Doonesbury (1/22/10)

Without wading too deeply into the cliquish world of heavy metal, I find it hard to believe that fans of the genre would lump an underground icon like Slayer in with a hair metal band like Guns N’ Roses. And although I find the debate over metal genres to be insufferable, I have to agree that Guns n’ Roses is, musically, worlds apart from their harder, heavier contemporaries. In fact, they’re the only band I can think of that managed to peak with the very first song on their very first album. “Welcome to the Jungle” was a pretty good track, but to my tastes it was all downhill from there.
