30 years is a bit of a stretch, but metal in general in my opinion stands the test of time pretty damn well. And rock music too; for example there are a number of Finnish rock bands you'd think made their older albums fairly recently, based on the quality of audio and the style of music (of course there are exceptions). And no, that is not because the mixing / audio quality is poor in Finland, that is definitely not the case. At least not after the 70's-80's turn point in which audio processing took a huge leap forward here (again, in my opinion).

Of course, if the question is asking more about which kinds of music are just as enjoyable today as they were then, then I'd say all music except maybe the stuff that reek of the 80's and 90's the most; the stereotypical type of songs of those eras. For example, I think 30's jazz is still pretty friggin' great music. Some weird electropop with Axel Foley -style percussion; perhaps not so much (though don't get me wrong, the Beverly Hills Cop theme is still a great piece of music, even if the sounds are awfully dated. There is some charm in them still, and nostalgia).

I like a few of the the songs on Seasons, so I guess I am no die hard fan. I will turn in my slayer fan card, eventhough I own all the albums produced before 2000.

I love it because Blood Red is the only song of theirs I can play on my guitar. XD Well, let me qualify that, it's the only song of theirs I can play that people actually recognize when I play it.

I've heard Dead skin mask is really easy to play, one of my favorites from that album...Blood Red of course another one. I don't play any musical instrument, but I always wanted to play the guitar.
