The scientific results aren't quite back yet, but I feel safe in stating without a shadow of a doubt that S.O.D. is the greatest rock band ever. I mean, to kill as hard as they did, cross over metal and hardcore, AND write lyrics like "He'll pour gas on your kids, then throw 'em a match. He'll back his car over Grandma, then dissect her cat"? GENIUS. And that doesn't even get into the jawdropping rhythm guitar playing or the double-bass blasts. This was the most precise band on the planet, and they recorded Speak English or Die in a WEEK. Hands down, best album ever.
