AC/DC, Blue Oyster Cult, Boston were some of my first albums in this genre.

Especially AC/DC's Let There be Rock, Highway to Hell, and Back in Black.

Ratt and Poison? RATT and POISON? Are you kidding me? That's like saying "What got you into bonging marijuana? Cab Calloway's Minnie the Moocher?"

Just jesting... Although it could be true, if you knew the song facts...

Among the first bands that got me interested in Metal were Disturbed and DragonForce. I still like them both to this day, but I dont actually listen to them much anymore.

Steppenwolf (yeah, I know they aren't metal) were the band that got me into metal and yes it was their song "Born To Be Wild" that did so.

It would have to be Maiden as well, back in the 1980's on vinyl. Cant even remember the album now but I desparately wanted to play fast and I figured that by listening to fast guitar playing, that would do it. What a knob!

A combination of thrash and black ("hipster") metal got my feet wet. Specifics were Metallica, Maiden, Mastodon (who I am aware do not reflect either of the previous labels), Alcest, Amesoeurs, Liturgy. I've come to not be that into most of those bands, what with my black metal listening getting dominated by Master's Hammer and my main metal loves becoming grindcore (some people lump this with punk; i think it's a pretty cool synthesis of the two [at least better than metalcore! :p]) and drone doom.

I love music even more these days, but I can't help but be a little jaded more often than not, and Manowar makes me feel like a kid again.
It's not so much taking it seriously than just music being overdone. Sure, I can see how they're fun and passionate, but to the point that sounds somewhat corny. I like listening to fun metal, I guess Manowar don't fit the kind I can stomach.
