What worse thing/person/event to happen to Metal?

I think it was Nirvana cause they took Metal's dominance. Before them it was all about the Black Album, Use Your Illusion 1 and 2, No More Tears and other great Metal artists. And all for what, so Kurt would kill himself and let the entire genre to go downhill with Alternative Rock and Nu Metal styles of music. Metal has not been the same since.

    Before Grunge it was hair metal. I know this. I was there. Did you forget that? Mediocre pretty boys, with big hair, too much make up and very poppy sounds?

    HAIR metal was the worst thing to happen to music, by a long shot. What could Bon Jovi possibly done fpr the music scene?

    Dimebags murder for sure. You obviously know nothing about metal or Nirvana or Kurt Cobain for one Nirvana wasn't metal and two Kurt Cobain didn't kill himself.
