Scott Ian quotes

I'm just not a big fan of the too-cool-for-school indie world. Metal bands have never been invited or been able to be part of the cool kids, and I like it that way.

Frank Zappa... was Beethoven for insane rock guys.

Music and songs are written at different periods of time, at different times in your life. They reflect the feelings you have and to be honest, I quite like having positive emotions.

Why would heavy metal ever go away?

Anthrax, it's something that gets you sick, it's horrible, strong. It's a heavy-metal band name if there ever was one.

As big as Metallica are, they're still not like a pop act. As big as they are, they're still not U2 or Lady Gaga. It's still underground.

I don't even know who that person was in the '80s. I see pictures of myself from back then and I don't even recognize myself.

I have enough to think about - I just don't ever want to have to think about my car.

I kind of live in this weird world where I am exposed to a lot of stuff, but then again I am not exposed to a lot of stuff.

I love what I do, somehow I have been able to play in a band for my entire life and that is all I ever wanted to do. I love that I get to do that.

I think the best riffs and the best songs come when you're jamming and having a good time.

I will absolutely say that Johnny Ramone was a huge influence on me. I'm a giant Ramones fan.

I'm not the kind of guy who sits around at home and writes songs. Once in a while I'll pick up a guitar and noodle around, but it's rare.

I've always been a true believer that if men had babies, nobody would be trying to tell them what they can and can't do with their bodies.

Metal guys are huge nerds. A good percentage of them are either horror or sci-fi or comic book or fantasy nerds.

Nobody gets into a band and thinks they're going to have a 30-year career.

There's a thousand other things I would rather spend money on than a car.

To be honest, I'm one of the least-technical guitar players around. I just want a guitar to feel good and sound good. That's it, period.

To me, the guitar is a tool for songwriting, and it's fun, too. The day that it's not fun, that's when I'm not gonna play guitar anymore.

What is it about a zombie that appeals to me? I don't know. Maybe that it's just the most possible - I don't know - of all the supernatural entities.
