Default Anyone else sick of hearing Dio on Hardattack?

I've heard Holy Diver twice today, as well as 2 or 3 other Dio songs, and I haven't even been listening that much today. I noticed it's been going on all week the the Metal Gods Week. Don't get me wrong, I'm loving the Metal Gods Week thing. All the Metallica, Maiden, Priest, Slayer, Fear Factory, etc. (especially the live cuts that we never hear) are awesome I really don't think Dio is a metal god though. He joined Black Sabbath after Ozzy left, and Sabbath went to shit. Then he started up a shitty hair band. Sounds like a real godly guy right there.

I think Sabbath "jumped the shark" after both Ozzy and Dio left the band. If "Mob Rules" and "Heaven and Hell" are crap, then I wish all rock bands could produce such crappy music

Maybe I just have a way different idea of what belongs on Hardattack. I think Dio should live on Hair Nation, which brings me to another point...WHY THE HELL IS AC/DC ON HAIR NATION!!!???!!

With as big of a force he was in the old days of metal it is fitting that they are playing him so much this week.. you will probly never hear him on the normal rotation..

Those are two of my all time favorite albums. I love Black Sabbath with Dio.

Actually the Born Again album with Ian Gillian is one of the best albums Sabbath ever did. I even like the album they did with Dio in the late 90's.

I never thought I'd hear someone call Dio a "crappy hair band." DIO RULES! The short little bastard. Sabbath with Dio just kills the later period Sabbath with Ozzy albums. Put Heaven and Hell and Mob Rules up against Never Say Die and Technical Ecstasy and then you'll know why they made the change.

Ronnie James Dio not a "Metal God"? Dio is much more a "Metal God" than Fear Factory (who's apparent status as one is very questionable in my opinion). Heaven and Hell, Mob Rules, Holy Diver, The Last In Line are all classics of genre! DIO was never "Hair Metal".

DIO IS A GOD!!!! Anyone that puts out music and tours as hard as he does for a guy that is in his MID 60's is totally hardcore!!!! Seen him countless times on stage and will never forget seeing him a few years back on his Magica tour in front of 200 people playing his concept album from beginning to end! Everyone's horns were way up!!!!

Yes. You can credit "\m/" to Ronnie James Dio. Dio is an absolute pillar of metal and deserves all the accolades for making metal more than just a genere of music. He created the metal stage show spectacular. I saw him twice on the "Sacred Heart" tour. It was the ultimate show of its time. back in 1985.



I was absoultely blown away when seeing that show. I saw him on 12/06/85 when Vivian Campbell was playing guitar , and then again on 07/26/86 with Craig GOldy (who is back playing with him, again!).

I then saw him a couple years later on the "Dream Evil" Tour. Another amazing show, but was not quite the calibur of Sacred Heart.

I know many have called upon Dio to "pass the torch" and let someone else in the metal worl run with it
but I disagree. Dio still has the passion to be "the man", and Hard Attack is a great place to give him that audience.
