Metal Trivia Answers from Last Week

As Kim Kelly says (well, writes), “You’ll Never Listen to All the Music You Want to Hear Before You Die.”

Amen.

Even though I am literally drowning in amazing music given my day job (Close Mondays), I find it hard to ever answer the age old question, “so what are you listening to lately?”

This is not a jaded, burned out feeling, though. No, that was me back in 2010 or so when I was burnt to a crisp on metal and bombed my 2nd interview with Google Music because I couldn’t rattle off my ten favorite albums from the year before. Oops.

METAL TRIVIA ANSWERS #1,304

Behold, metal friends! Here be the answers to all the metal trivia from the week of March 12, 2018.

Metal Trivia Answers: Howard Jones, Thin Lizzie, ”Beginning of Sorrow’ + more

HI, Seth.  Each week in this email I try to link up something worth supporting, and it feels lately there’s about a dozen ways we could put $10 to good use. This week I’m asking for your help to support Students Run Philly Style. They spend time with kids, training, running, and racing in Philadelphia. And they need shoes. Gear. Food (if I remember correctly kids have pretty big appetites).

Like me you’ve probably seen some kids do amazing things in the past week. Let’s not wait for another tragedy before we do something to empower kids to shine like the rockstars they are.

Click here to learn how you can sponsor my run and help me raise $500 for Students Run Philly Style.

Metal Trivia Answers: Faith No More, William DuVall + More

HI, metal friend. This week my friend Tweeted, “Don’t be discouraged, keep doing good.”

Keep hugging your friends, writing, showing up. Keep buying albums, texting people you haven’t talked to in awhile, and supporting worthy causes. We’re allowed to be tired, run down, and shocked, but we can’t give up. Stakes are too high.
