Let me start by saying I like Dio. Fuck, I'm listening to "Dream Evil" right now.
But, as great as he is, he totally mindfucked my friend. Just today, we were sharing an inside joke when he came out of nowhere with "Dio is way better than Led Zeppelin." Now, as some of you might know, I grew up on Led Zeppelin. It's kind of my thing, I'm the Led Zeppelin guy of my class. Naturally, since I'm not an asshole, I just said "Fine." and didn't think anything of it.
But, later that same day, we were at lunch and he said to some senior walking by "Hey, this faggot thinks Led Zeppelin is better than Dio." So, the guy laughed at me and walked away. What a dick.
I'm sorry, but Dio didn't go on a three year tour, putting on five shows a week. He also isn't, as most of you will agree, the definitive heavy metal band.
