If in the genre section it says Groove metal...then why does it say in the opening sentance "hard rock supergroup." Come on, it can't be both. Trivium9786 00:04, 14 April 2007 (UTC)

I was just going to make a topic about that. The contradictory classifications should be removed. --Pasajero 22:24, 15 April 2007 (UTC)
I don't see how they're groove metal. I would list them as alternative metal and hard rock, and I guess heavy metal could be accepted as well. Dmiles21 00:25, 19 April 2007 (UTC)
I'd go with Heavy Metal, have you heard Waging War? Skeeker 01:03, 20 April 2007 (UTC)


Bob Zilla has been officially confirmed as Hellyeah's new bassist. URFG 19:59, 16 May 2007 (UTC)URFG


How do you edit the infobox at the bottom of the page? It doesn't have the "edit" icon that many other pages have, and it doesn't show up on the edit page for the main article. URFG 00:27, 10 May 2007 (UTC)URFG

You go to the search box and type in Template: Hellyeah.Dark Executioner 15:07, 1 June 2007 (UTC)Dark Executioner

Fair use rationale for Image:HELLYEAH ST.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:HELLYEAH ST.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.BetacommandBot 06:36, 5 June 2007 (UTC)

GA nomination on hold[edit]

Leave a note on my talk page when this is all done. Cheers, Dihydrogen Monoxide 02:05, 10 December 2007 (UTC)

  • It's a bit repetitive to list the bands that members come from, and then to list the members and their respective. Might wanna just merge these sentences ("Hellyeah is a heavy metal supergroup, consisting of Mudvayne vocalist Chad Gray...")
  • "the self-titled album" - Change "the" to "a", or change to "the band's debut self titled album"
  • Ref 1 has a random quotation mark lying around on the title
  • "In their previous bands, there had only been one guitarist in each so it was a new experience for all members." - minor reword needed. --> "In their prevoius bands, there had only been one guitarist, so having two was a new was a new experience for all members."
  • "the summer and fall off" - summer and fall (especially fall) need wlinks so they aren't ambigous (for example, in Aussieville, we call it Autumn, not Fall, so most Aussies would be like "wtf"...not that any Aussies would listen to/read about such bad music :P)
  • "Gray flew into Baltimore to Nothingface's home studio to discuss the project." - This has no relation to what comes before it (nothing) or what comes after it (a discussion of ego). The whole paragraph is rather choppy and could do with a bit of copyediting
  • "due to everyones positive energy" - apostrophe (everyone's)
  • "Paul says it's "very affirmative and full of attitude..." - change "says" to "said"
  • Add {{main|Hellyeah (album)}} to the top of the "Hellyeah" section
  • "and an Australian tour in July 2007" --> "and underwent an Australian tour in July 2007"
  • "All Music Guide reviewer William Ruhlmann stated the album is "a competent example of its genre, in which Tribbett and Maxwell combine to create crushing riffs over the pummeling rhythm section of Montano and Paul, while Gray howls typically enraged, expletive-littered lyrics to songs"." - It aint good practice to use the same quote twice - this exact same quote is used in the "Hellyeah" section.

Passed. Dihydrogen Monoxide 03:00, 10 December 2007 (UTC)

"not that any Aussies would listen to/read about such bad music :P" What are you talking about? you're trying to get this nominated and you don't even like thegroup? WTF? Take this POV-loaded crap to a forum, not a Wikipedia talk page.

If you don't like the band, then don't listen to them!!!!!

The box[edit]

How do you edit the box that sais their origin, genre, website, etc? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Ugobama (talkcontribs) 02:53, 26 January 2008 (UTC)

Just edit the page like you would normally. The box is at the very top of the editing screen. 22:43, 3 February 2008 (UTC) —Preceding unsigned comment added by Dark Executioner (talkcontribs)
