Thread Name: Does anyone here like Heavy Metal?
Subject: RE: Does anyone here like Heavy Metal?
From what I've heard the first time the words "heavy metal thunder" were used was in Born to Be Wild by Steppenwolf. The phrase heavy metal came from there.

Also - Peg - the stuff about Jethro Tull winning the first grammy for "Heavy Metal" was a million dollar question on "Who wants to be a Millionaire". I was screaming at the TV that I knew the answer - however I was ignoring the fact that I was clueless about the question before it - the real name of one of the Popes before he became a priest. Money slips through my fingers somedays.
