KISS were definitely considered metal in many circles, but for some reason Heston is good at ignoring that.

No, I have defined KISS as metal before.

101 is a metalphobe he wont be any help.
But Heston doesn't know what metal is, so they might find common ground.
Rush, Van Halen, Kiss, long hair and screechy lyrics, it's all metal to me. Did it look out of place on a sleeveless denim jacket in 1980? That's all you need to ask.
Did those bands think themselves metal? Did fans think it was metal? Was it promoted as metal? As I've said before, sure, anyone can come up with their own working definition and apply it to their heart's content, but if they're looking to persuade, taking into account how others view it is kind of important.
I still think there's a schism between the US and UK on metal. Rush were definitely lumped in with Maiden, Priest etc in the early 80s over here. My mates were happy to wear the patches of all of those bands. It's down to whether you interpret it as heavy rock or heavy metal. To me, if they were in the Kerrang they were metal. That will be why I ended up going to see April Wine.
I've seen punks with Motorhead patches, buttons, at shows but none were under the illusion that Motorhead were punk.

So Marillion were like super metal then right? They were always in Kerrang.

Plus Asia, Joan Jett, Pat Benatar and Kim Carnes?
Well that was a bit later, I'm talking 80/81. We invented metal so I'm pretty sure we can define it how we see fit.
Ok, 80/81 but definitely not 82. Got it.

My definition of hippies is different to yours. KISS were a rock and roll band, not some stupid fucking heavy metal hippies.

No, you are just inconsistent.

They're metal when you don't like them, but they aren't metal when you do.

Early Rush could certainly be categorized as hard rock but heavy metal requires a little more...
Yeah. They’re a proggy sort of hard rock that I can see certain metal fans liking, but they aren’t themselves metal.
Absolutely many metal fans were Rush fans back in the day but they saw the distinction.
I always understood Rush fans with pot smokers and being into scifi/fantasy. Some metal fans in those groups, but not exclusively at all.
Pot was great
Yes, it was.
