* NeverTrustATitle: This movie really does not focus on the metal. The soundtrack is subdued enough that most of the music is barely audible in the background, there are long gaps between songs, and by today's standards most of the songs would not really be considered heavy metal. The name comes from the magazine the stories were taken from rather than the music.

Added DiffLines:

** This is more an example of a misunderstood title. The title of the film comes from the American version of the incredibly influential French graphic/comic book anthology "Métal hurlant", in which the Metal refers not to music but to the application of a Metal attitude to graphic novels, just as Punk literature does not have to involve Punk music.

* ReasonYouSuckSpeech: Regarding Captain Sternn..
-->'''Hanover Fiste:''' He's nothing but a low-down, double-dealing, backstabbing, larcenous perverted worm! ''Hangin's'' too good for him. ''Burnin's'' too good for him! He should be torn into little bitsy pieces and ''buried alive!''
