Besides you can't compare a bands poor choice of sound vs a band changing lead singers 3 times, then changing between the 3 lead singers throughout the years. Who knows maybe mentioning Roth from the beginning would not have mattered, then again maybe that 1 Hager fan would have been mad and not voted.
A bunch of people have NOT voted, hahaha, are you that ONE Hagar fan?!
On a serious note, I agree that Metallica's second sound did take a more mainstream approach, but as a GREAT guitarist once told me, "a good song is a good song". I personally think Metallica had some good stuff in their post-Black Album material. As Van Halen had some decent stuff with Hagar, I guess. It's all just for fun, and it's all just opinion.
