Utah needs independent journalism more than ever, and we're asking for your continued support of our editorial voice. We are fighting for you and all the people and businesses hardest hit by this pandemic.

Eight songs you’ll never hear The Metal Gods—celebrating 301 shows at Liquid Joe’s this week—perform, as told by singer Nigel Thames:

8. “Christine Sixteen,” Kiss: Because Gene’s spoken middle eight is really, really, really creepy.

7. “Midnite Maniac,” Krokus: Because people who get laid to Krokus ... shouldn’t.

6. “Open Letter to a Landlord,” Living Colour: Inner-city urban angst doesn’t quite resonate in Utah.

5. “Battery,” Metallica: Ratio of hookups to fistfights during Metallica songs? Zero to lots.

4. “Angry Again,” Megadeth: See No. 5 above.

3. “Armageddon It,” Def Leppard: A biblical term turned into a copulation cliché. Nice.

2. “When the Children Cry,” White Lion: I hate kids. Weeping children make me laugh hysterically, and I can’t sing while I’m giggling.

1. “Smoke on the Water,” Deep Purple: Because after the opening riff, who gives a shit?
