On an episode of South Park, Dio was shown performing Holy Diver live. However, apart from Ronnie James Dio, the rest of the band was just generic looking guys.

So, just before the 2nd half kickoff of the Superbowl, the stadium was bumping Metallica. Anybody else catch that? I had already knocked back way too many brews so I can't remember the song. My wife did say she heard me mumble something like "Ride the Lightning."
It was For Whom the Bell Tolls I believe

Value City Furniture has been running commercials with Queen's 'I Want It All' in the spot. I didn't think they were that big, so I wonder if they are using that legally. Laughing

We have the same commercials down here, but under the American Signature Furniture Moniker. Gawd I hate those commercials.

The first example I thought of was Shok Paris' "On Your Feet" being used in the opening chase scene as the alien-possessed guy is smashing into stuff and running over people with his car. Turns out the alien likes metal.

That's from the movie The Hidden.

I remember back in 1990 watching "Pacific Heights" and Hallow's Eve's "Lethal Tendencies" came on. Blew me away. I also remember hearing Slayer and Fates Warning in the movie "River's Edge" back in '86 if memory serves.

I just saw the American Signature version on TV this morning. Maybe they own Value City? Their commercials are basically the same. Just different merchandise. Same format and music.

Over the weekend I got caught up on a few episodes of SyFy's "Being Human," in which one of the characters is a ghost girl who recently passed and hasn't quite gotten the hang of her new "status" yet. Her friends (a werewolf and a vampire) hooked her up with a ghost who's been around a while to show her the ropes. He "died" in 1987 so he was a total mullet, high top sneakers, denim & t-shirt lookin' dude. When he first appeared the ghost chick said to him "Shouldn't you be haunting a Kix concert?" Laughing very hard

Not quite relevant, but I just remembered the other day in an episode of X-Files you can clearly see a Killer Dwarfs poster in a kid's room headbanger

I love that movie!!!

Some stuff that hasn't been mentioned yet, although I knew about some of this stuff before I actually saw some of these movies:

Clerks II: King Diamond's "Welcome Home" was on the soundtrack. I saw this movie in theaters, so I really wasn't expecting it at all.

Demons: Accept's "Fast as a Shark" and Saxon's "Everybody Up" are played towards the end of the movie.

Married...With Children: Anthrax appeared on an episode and performed the first minute and a half or so of "In My World". It's one of my favorite shows and Anthrax is one of my favorite bands. Al Bundy rules!!

Old School: Metallica's "Master of Puppets" is played.

Return of the Living Dead Part II: Anthrax's "A.D.I./Horror of It All" is played.

Sleepaway Camp II: Unhappy Campers: Anvil's "Straight Between the Eyes" is played during the opening credits and Obsession's "Desperate to Survive" is played during the ending credits.

Sleepaway Camp III: Teenage Wasteland: Anvil's "Wild Eyes" and Obsession's "Killer Elite" and "Methods of Madness" are all in the movie.

Now if we were to include seeing logos written somewhere or apparel or memorabilia used in the films I could list tons of other movies...but does that count?

Has anyone mentioned that Metallica's "For Whom the Bell Tolls" plays over the opening credits of "Zombieland?" If not, now I mentioned it. Laughing

That opening credit sequence is brilliant. Actually, the entire movie was pretty brilliant.

The soundtrack for Phenomena (aka Creepers) has tons of metal on it, and one of my favorite scenes from the movie is when a girl is running from the killer, and Iron Maiden's "Flash of the Blade" is playing.

Lemmy stars in the sci-fi/thriller, Hardware. He is playing a cab driver, and he is blasting Motörhead in his cab.

GWAR also make a brief cameo in "Hardware" as a band playing a concert on TV.

Speaking of Lemmy, he also has a cameo in "Airheads" as part of the crowd outside the radio station ("I was editor of the school magazine!")

Gwar also had an appearance in "Empire Records" which was pretty funny. I didn't know about Lemmy's appearance in "Hardware", I'm gonna go look that up on YouTube. I do remember his appearance in "Airheads", though. Also, Judas Priest's "Breaking the Law" and "Living After Midnight" and Metallica's "Master of Puppets" have all been on "The Simpsons". Each of those scenes involved Otto the bus driver of course.
