Probably the most polarising music genre of them all, metal music is revered by its fans and laughed at by its detractors, but in this A Brief History Of Metal video by Pitchfork we get a full rundown of why metal is to this day one of the most influential movements in modern music. Presented in an extremely humorous animated show and tell format, we learn about the genre’s humble beginning with the likes of Black Sabbath and Led Zeppelin, all the way up to the modern spin off genres like Black Metal and Doom Metal that are so popular today. All in all, it’s a very informative video that will make you laugh just as much as it will make you want to wear all black and finally get that tattoo you’ve been thinking about.
