    Thumbs up VH1 annouce Heavy Metal Month in May

    VH1 ANNOUNCE METAL MONTH FOR MAY 2006:
    May is Metal Month on US cable TV network VH1. In line with that, here's what the station has planned:
    40 Greatest Metal Songs premieres Monday-Thursday 5/1-5/4 at 11pm
    "Whether epic, political, scary or downright silly, these hard driving tunes have one thing in common they'll rock your friggin socks off! This two-hour special will bring you 40 of the very best hotel trashing hard rock anthems. The panel of hard rock scholars who rate these tracks include metal all-stars Lars Ulrich, Scott Ian, Jerry Cantrell, Ronnie James Dio and more."
    Behind The Music Ratt and Behind The Music Pantera premieres Thursday 5/11 (time TBA)
    "Behind the Music explores the rise and fall of this chart-topping group who helped shape the sound of 80s metal. The one-hour episode uncovers the demons that tore the band apart and the tragic final days of guitarist Robin Crosby. Behind the Music Pantera uncovers the meteoric rise of this hard rocking band and the conflicts and extreme events that would eventually unravel them."
    SuperGroup #101 series premiere is Thursday, 5/18 at 10pm
    "VH1's SuperGroup Ted Nugent, Scott Ian, Sebastian Bach, Evan Seinfeld and Jason Bonham, are poised to re-conquer the rock world (and hopefully spread a little debauchery and black leather in the process) in the ultimate musical experiment. SuperGroup will bring together these five hard rocking icons and present them with the opportunity to create the heaviest SuperGroup. Ultimately viewers will see whether or not the band will come together as hard rock's saviors or simply implode."
    Heavy - The Story of Metal, premieres Monday-Thursday 5/22-5/25 at 9pm
    "What Ken Burns did for jazz, VH1 does for heavy metal only a lot louder. Heavy The Story of Metal, traces the evolution of heavy metal music and culture, from its dark, grim beginnings in Birmingham, England to the worldwide force that it remains to this day. In a series of four themed hours, Heavy, explores four decades of music, each hour examining this powerful and often misunderstood genre, from metal's pioneers to its love of glam and excess; from the fight for metal's rebellious soul to its storied flirtation with the devil."
    Rock Honors premieres Wednesday, 5/31 from 9-11pm
    "VH1 debuts its firsts ever show that pays homage to the legends that influenced the sound of Rock with the first annual VH1 Rock Honors. VH1 Rock Honors will be taped in Las Vegas on Thursday May 25th. The 20-hour tribute will salute the groundbreaking bands of rock, the once in a lifetime events and the influential people who made a lasting mark on the history of hard rock. The influence of the honorees will be felt through spoken tributes, filmed packages, and performances. The honored legends of rock will perform themselves as well as duet with current artists on whom they ve indelibly left their artistic imprint. Performers, presenters, and special guests will be announced as they are confirmed."

    Guarantee you that more than anything else it'll be hairbands. You won't see bands like Raven, Saxon, or any of the other NWOBHM bands that made the scene explode.

    VH1 does this EVERY time. They announce something "heavy metal" and then immediately you see Warrant or Poison on it.

    Gah.

    Don't get me wrong, I'll be watching it too.

    VH1 just shouldn't call it heavy metal.

    You can call it...
    Heavy metal, hard-core, punk, pop, or thrash.
    You can call it anything it don't matter to me.
    Call it what you want.
    It's all music to me.

    I'll take it over MTV's reality shows with a bunch of d-bags babbling on & on & on...........

    I heard the shows will have alot more depth than just covering what was popular in the late 1980s. I guess we will have to watch and see.
