The idea for this thread came to me after Chris posted a thread for Seventh Son of a Seventh Son, and he mentioned Can I Play with Madness, which was played a lot on Vh1 Classic's Metal Mania. I remember hearing Kid Rock's The History of Rock in either 2,000-2,001(not the best introduction to rock and metal but you have to start somewhere) and my dad played American Bad Ass at max and it had the heaviest riff I had ever heard at the time, (as I got more into metal I found it was the riff to Sad But True) it blew me away, I stuck mostly to classic rock, country, and blues up until about 2004. I was in the 2nd grade and I GTA San Andreas was coming out and I saw the commercial and this banshee wail followed by a faint echo started getting louder and louder and then DUN DUN dadadaddadada WELCOME TO THE JUNGLE came out of nowhere and I was hooked ever since. What were your first metal steps?
