Watch VH1 Classic’s “That Metal Show”


If you’ve got a ringing in your ears and don’t know why, it might just be because That Metal Show has returned for a second season. VH1 Classic‘s weekly dash through all thing loud and heavy made a big dent with fans last summer, and its back again, bringing you the blunt opinions of hosts Eddie Trunk, Jim Florentine and Don Jamison. The guys debate modern music issues and classic music heroes; every week they bring out a guest or two as well. It airs on VH1 Classic on Saturdays at 11 pm ET. If you’ve got a question for ‘em about a long lost metal band, they just might answer it.

This week’s visitor is Frankie Bello, Anthrax‘s bassist. Dude doesn’t waste time. He’s talking about the downside of European port-o-potties in the first two minutes of taking the stage. Watch the whole thing above. Check the full episode of last week’s show after the jump.

    I love “That Metal Show”. You guys are keeping me informed on all the bands I grew up with. I was wondering if you have any news on a metal band from Germany called Primal Fear. Will their upcoming U.S. tour be expanded? Will they ever appear on your show?
    I would also like to add that Ralf Sheepers (the lead singer for Primal Fear) has to be one of the greatest metal frontman in metal history.

    Dude, I’m sick of Eddie Trunk. Dude, I grew up with the 70′s and 80′s. You tell me why – Kiss and Metallica are in the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame – before Rush and Iron Maiden. Kiss sucked – besides the makeup and show – Dude are you F’n kiddin me. that teeny bopper heavy metal sucks. Why – rush is not in and kiss is – blows me away. Then – you have iron maiden – these dudes rock – they blow away kiss. kiss is the most overated band ever in history – cmon love doctor or number the beast or waisted years. Dude – they suck. Rush and Maiden belong there before, kiss and metallica do. Lars – that Whiny ~$(`*^*)#**)@(^*! see ya

    How could you guys screw up the top 5 debut albums

    Van Halen was number one! Not that I don’t love Black Sabbath but Black Sabbath debut album didn’t get the recognition until a few years after its initial release!

    Van Halen took the world by storm!

    Don and Jim need to stick to comedy

  18. Brian says:

    Don, Jim, & Eddie,
    I have a Top 5 category for you. If a Heavy Metal/Hard Rock Hall of Fame was created. Only 5 bands could be in the inaugural class, which five bands would you choose? My picks: AC/DC, Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin, Metallica, and Van Halen. Your’s?

  19. Sharon Bognar says:

    Hey guys: Love the show. Please don’t ever stop taping it. Eddie held up a T-shirt on the last show that i watched. AND I want one. Please would you be so kind as to tell me how I can get one of these shirts???? He gave the website to get the shirt, but I never saw any shopping, just ads for the show which is just marvelous, but I want a T- shirt…..Please help!
    Peace, Love & Metal

  26. carnage says:

    This show has the right idea in mind; don’t get me wrong- what other show on T.V. is going to have David Coverdale and Yngwie interviewed as guests? BUT…as a fan of hard rock/ metal since it’s infancy in the early ’70′s and a musician myself, I must admit that the content of the interviews and line of questioning of the musicians is infintile at best. 99% of the information being passed along sheds hardly any new light on the artists and their music, careers, or personal lives. Infact, most of it could be passed off as old news. Also, the panel’s infatuation with Kiss almost ruins every show- IT NEEDS TO STOP. My heart is with the IDEA of the show— but my mind is telling me the hosts have got to do a better job interviewing these guests.

  27. mike anderson says:

    Dear Eddie, I want to thank you very much for having Mr. Tony Iommi on your metal show. I was captivated. What a classy well mannered gentleman he is, an absolute titan of a metal guitarist he is. Heavy metal needs more people like him. Im sure you know that there are metal musicians with unwarranted massive eggoes living disgusting lives. Tony, and the rest of Sabbath seem to be humble and selfless and grateful. Judas Priests Glenn Tipton and KK downing emit the same.I believe it’s there nothing for free blue collar hard work upbringing that catter to that. Again I want to thank you very much for having him on, I’ve been a fan of his a long long time. Have a great season, Mike anderson.

  28. chase says:

    my thought on live metal shows are that people are not going to shows because it not real metal anymore .we want the old sound that has been pushed back into a deep hole and the “new metal” has lost its touch with thrash, black metal, a touch of the blues ext… it seems everyone is starting to sound the same . LETS GO METALLICA , ICED EARTH, MEGADETH, SABBOTH. WE WANT TO SEE THIS HAPPEND AGAIN !

  29. jimbo says:
