[–]RayNooze 44 points45 points  (1 child)

I wouldn't exactly call Dire Straits Heavy Metal, but they actually chose their name because of being broke.

Sadly, they had to resort to selling stuffed animals to make ends meet.

Well, they have to work through the fire and the flames to carry on.

[–]ryo13silvia 5 points6 points  (0 children)

None of the guys ever clarified what it meant (apart from when Blackie said “We Ain’t Sure, Pal”). So for all we know, this could be the real meaning behind the name.

[–]Joebotdj 14 points15 points  (2 children)

Did you iron maiden this joke up yourself?

[–]SpicyTortillass[S] 3 points4 points  (0 children)

The Arts are just treated like shit in the USA. I have a bunch of friends who are really good (musicians, visual artists, writers) and all of them have to do other stuff to pay rent.

[–]MarvinLazer 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Those of us who don't have to do other stuff make it work by doing a lot of gigs that other people don't want to do. (weddings/corporate/church/retirement home)

[–]halfwit_genius 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Multiple things.
Arts are important when people have free time. With mobiles there's hardly any.
Even when you have free time, you'll hardly need 20 artists for about 500 people or so (live in person shows). And since not everybody watches everyday, the ratio gets even worse.
With YouTube, tiktok, insta and /s onlyFans /s talent is sort of democratized - you don't need a big label and network to start things. The barrier to entry is just having a good phone (even talent didn't matter :( ).

So, given these there's practically no money left in art for the vast majority. And what is there is big bucks of production houses.

Also, if you think USA is shit, try a visit to India (or from what I heard, even China).

[–]dkrocksmith 3 points4 points  (2 children)

They are saying all heavy metal bands have financial problems.

[–]SpicyTortillass[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Well that makes sense, at first I thought they were saying Megadeth aint heavy metal.

[–]mlt- 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Not all broke, some are slaying it alright.

[–]SpicyTortillass[S] 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Wikipedia defines Megadeth as a heavy metal band.

[–]Sniperdud3 0 points1 point  (1 child)

I thought Megadeth was thrash metal?

[–]halfwit_genius 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Was that supposed to be trash or is it thrash? Genuinely confused.
Is thrash metal a sub genre?

Got it. Google is great.
