    does anybody else here think that Manowar is the funniest thing ever?

    from their song "Kings of Metal"

    "Manowar, Manowar, livin on the road.
    When were in town speakers explode!
    We dont attract wimps, cuz were too loud!"

    and of course the refrain: "other bands play, manowar kills!"

    theyre like the 80s meets the new rappers which just talk about all the money they have.

    ...maybe its just me...

    seriously download "kings of metal" by manowar and youll have a damn good laugh:D

    Is this anything to do with Pirates? ;)
  4. Hey! Manowar used to really rock back in their day! Now that i'm older i see how childish some of their lyrics are, hehe.. some are really funny.

    But they also have some pretty good tunes, like "Defender" and "The Power of Thy Sword" and "The Power". I think all of their songs are about one of two things: either them being the most rockin' band in the world, or about some D&D fantasy thing.

    And Joey DeMaio is a damn awesome bassist too.. pretty damn fast, though he uses a pick and a piccolo bass, but still... very fast
  5. I used to have a Manowar tape some time back... can't even remember the name. I thought they were pretty good but, even then, I understood their comic value.;)

    ...and very sloppy.

    remember that Flight of the Bumblebee solo?

    Or was it Sabre Dance? Don't remember.

    I saw them live a couple of years ago, and it was the most boring time of my life. Sure, some of the old songs made me smile, but their guitarist was so lame. He had the technique, but that was all he had... tasteless, soulless, it sucked, really. The worst part was when they got this girl on stage, told her to take off her bra (which she did :confused: ) and then got this guy from the audience, handed him a guitar, and told him that if he played well, he would get laid with the girl on stage.

    Then they played "Gods made heavy metal".

    If i wouldn't have been so busy laughing i would have thrown up. Pathetic, IMO.

    Their comical nature has always been pretty funny, but it was combined with great music. Their first 3 albums are absolutely fantastic! After that the comical side took over too much.

    LOL--they're from my city... yeah, it sounds weird, cuz i said "manowar? are you sure its the right band from THIS city?" but anyways, one time we had a gig and our PA was sh*t and we couldn't use it, so we had to call EVERYWHERE like, 20 minutes before the gig to find some equipment to borrow (we were the only band playing) and we ended up calling one of the guys from manowar (hehe, i was sitting there going "this will never work") and to the bands surprise...

    it didn't. but its a fun story to tell.
