That was surprising.

I was happy one of the contestants got the right answer. Unfortunately he didn't end up winning.

The category was based on all the answers having the initials "D. M." Some of the others were Daisy Miller, dot matrix, and diabetes mellitus (?).

That is fucking surreal. I blame CERN for blurring universes on us and giving death metal this level of mainstream awareness. I mean Jim Carrey, Beavis and Butthead, and MTV itself weren't able to do it but now it's randomly on a Jeapardy question.

I'm pretty sure that early 90s episode where Dave Mustaine sweeps the entire thing is the only Jeopardy episode I've watched in its entirety.

I have seen another clip that referenced the Melvins so that's always fun.

Lol that Mustaine episode is hilarious. Back when I first saw that, I wasn't familiar with George Clinton or any of the Parliament/Funkadelic history so seeing him on that Jeopardy episode seemingly working at 1/2 the mental speed as everyone else in the room (and that's an accomplishment with Moon Zappa also being present) made me think the guy was some washed up crackhead.

But much later on down the road I started going back and checking out Funkadelic and Parliament albums and I came to realize he's actually a legend in the realm of funk music and also been sampled to the end and back by rap and hip-hop artists for years to come.

Wasn't that the short lived spin off rock n' roll jeopardy?

They even picked decent examples too and not modern deathcore :nods:

It's actually simply good general knowledge to know there's a a genre called "death metal" and those bands probably represent it

It might've been a good guess, I don't know. In my experience, people who aren't into hard rock or metal often say "death metal" (or occasionally even "screamo") to gesture toward anything vaguely approximating extreme metal, even stuff like Slipknot.

This is totally true, and it's been that way for decades. In 1999, in high school someone that knew I was into underground/death/black metal said to me "Yeah, I like death metal too dude like Pantera and Slipknot."

Another dude once called Papa Roach of all bands "Crazy death metal with screaming lyrics about suicide" in 2000. And as recently as this past May, I posted something on my instagram when I saw Cannibal Corpse live and someone I know commented "This is the kind of screamo I like!"

This makes me incredibly sad. I didn't even know "screamo" was actually in the public lexicon beyond those who were into it, whenever the fuck it was a thing.

A guy at work always does the same thing. He showed me a video of when he saw Hellyeah. He was like this show was ok, but they played only their death metal songs(I didn't know they had any). He said at some point they apparently had a sign up that said "death metal." Tired of being the prick who corrects people about music, so I said nothing.

Most non-metal fans use "screamo" and "death metal" interchangeably to refer to anything with generally harsh vocals, even with the increased public view of extreme metal over the last ten-ish years or so.

(Hell, my parents originally just called it "megadeath music," though to their credit they actually remembered all the genre names after hearing my ramble about them enough. :lol: )

in 2001, my dad took me when i was 16 to see a bill that was Pantera, Soulfly, Morbid Angel and Nothingface (hilarious lineup when you think about it). My dad to this day refers to anything he can't understand the lyrics to as "Morbid Angels" (plural).

A few years ago The Simpsons called Judas Priest death metal and the backlash was so great that they did this:

Jeopardy getting it right isn't surprising; they employ a team of professional researchers and the questions and potential responses are all thoroughly vetted. Still very, very cool that they did this and picked such respected bands.

They had to add Obituary so no one could say "dance music."

I'd say a very large percentage refer to anything and everything heavier than Linkin Park as "death metal".
