Seriously I think we could turn this into a drinking game. Take a drink if a band that you think is metal is not in The Metal Archives.
I'll give you a few to try.

@craigmaloney As a fan of Proper Industrial: you are understood.
@mwlucas I think I'd have a better time defining the universe with a three word vocabulary (not including the word "the") than try to define Industrial music.
Same with any electronic music genre. Or Detroit Techno.

@craigmaloney Bon Jovi is decidedly not metal, but I would think they would grandfather Motley Crue in.
Nail Bomb is a little surprising to me though, isn't that the Sepultura spinoff thingy?
@craigmaloney PS Rush is jazz
@pagrus Thing is you could make a case for each of these bands being metal-hybrids throughout their career.
Honestly I'm more picking fun than anything because the criteria seems rather arbitrary.
@craigmaloney sure it's arbitrary, and I have wondered the same thing wrt the MA
Oh, maybe I should attempt write a classifier- metal or not? Not sure what the features would be though
@craigmaloney 20 Dimensional Metal Classifier would be a pretty good band name, sounds like they would tour with Obscura
@craigmaloney I mean to be fair I think Ice-T described Body Count as "hardcore" which I would consider more punk than metal.
I mean clearly some of these bands are a judgement call, and the MA has to draw the line somewhere.
Octodon is a nice general purpose instance. more
