    Because Beethoven wrote his works 250 years ago, and it is a little hard to make the general public connect with something written for more or less an alien audience.

    It seems that women like ice cream, carrots and Fleetwood Mac better.

    Beethoven was MUCH better, Lars wasn't his drummer.

  10. One you wear all black and bang your head with a bunch of dudes.

    Ever seen a dead guy in concert? Totally lame.
    Can’t dance to dead guys either.
    No mosh pit at a cemetery. Most cemeteries, anyway.
    Metallica always has better hair.
    Harpsichord ain’t got whammy bars.
