The term "supergroup" first surfaced during the late '60s when already successful musicians started to link up with other well-known musicians to form new groups. The first wave of these bands include legendary acts such as Crosby, Stills & Nash, Blind Faith and Humble Pie. Since then, pretty much every musical genre you can think of boasts their very own version of a supergroup.

10 Greatest Metal Baseball Walk-Up Songs

In baseball, the walk-up song is everything. Heavy metal and hard rock-loving baseball players understand this. Unlike their fellow teammates who choose to walk to home plate or the pitcher's mound to the dance floor-ready sounds of hip-hop or R&B, metalhead players know that going with a heavy track is much more effective.

10 Searing Replacement Pickups for Hard Rock + Metal

Sonically speaking, the pickups in your guitar are at the forefront of your tone. Everything within your pickups -- such as their number of windings, the material and thickness of their wire, and their magnet type -- can have drastic effects on your tone's feel, sustain, punchiness and response. As such, many metal players oftentimes replace their stock pickups with hotter ones for more gain and aggression. It's a cheap mod that's relatively painless to perform and a hell of a lot cheaper than trying to fix the issues with a new guitar, amp or pedal.

10 Greatest Grunge Albums

In the early ‘90s, a wave of bands from Seattle captured the public’s imagination, spreading the sound of the Northwest underground to the world. Dubbed “grunge” or the “Seattle sound” by the press, its sonic characteristics were rooted in ‘60s garage rock and proto-heavy metal. When grunge first started creeping into the mainstream circa 1991, hair metal still ruled MTV, but bands like Nirvana and Soundgarden changed all that. A few key players in the grunge scene might have had hair metal pasts, but the Aqua Net and eyeliner had to go to make room in the closet for all the flannels and Chuck Taylors. Noisecreep is paying tribute to the hard-rocking sounds that dominated the '90s with our 10 Greatest Grunge Albums list.

10 Greatest Metal Songs of 1993

The year 1993 was a transitional one for metal. The late '80s glut of radio friendly metal acts was being eschewed away by the grunge explosion, leaving the genre in a state of trying to regain its hold in the music world. By the time 1993 rolled around we began to see pockets of metal sub-genres starting to take hold. The more extreme, death and sludge metal acts started knocking down doors, some of the remaining vets of the '80s adapted with the times and there were a few metal acts who even broke through the radio barrier. As we reflect on the greatest metal songs of 1993, it's interesting to see just how the roots of future favorite acts were just starting to take hold. So join us as we count down the 10 Greatest Metal Songs of 1993.
