Westboro Baptist Church Plan To Sing "Crazy Train" Parody While Picketing SLAYER Guitarist Jeff Hanneman's Funeral
Go away Westboro Baptist Church, nobody likes you…and you are really just asking for it at this point. (more…)
Ok, I didn't believe that Mayan-calendar-2012-end-of-the-world bullshit before, but now I'm sort of questioning myself as news has surfaced that Fred Durst is collaborating with the Insane Clown Posse on a cover track. It's of course a cover of a rap song, AMG's "Bitch Better Have My Money." The track is appearing on an ICP cover album, Covered, Smothered And Chunked which comes with one of the versions of ICP's new album, The Mighty Death Pop. What other songs do they cover, you ask? Oh, you didn't ask? Well, just FYI…House Of Pain’s “Jump Around” and Christina Aguilera’s “Beautiful” are also covered. I know, you are just saying…man, if only I could watch an 18 minute infomercial about this new album. Thankfully… (more…)
Jonathan Davis is ahead of the game, ya'll. He's beyond metal, beyond rock… he's on that electronic tip. He's now collaborating with DJs, like Israeli trance artist Infected Mushroom and a dood named Datsik. Look at his eyes! And his teeth! What artistry. Is this the future of music? Or is this the future of irritation? ORR, am I just getting old? [via Brandon Geist]
There has been a lot of Nickelback hate on the internet lately. There was a petition to ban them from playing a hockey game, another to ban them from playing at a football game, and now the coup de grace…a Chrome/Firefox plugin that blocks any mentions of Nickelback on the internet. The official page for the plugin states "once installed, NICKELBLOCK will eliminate all mention of Alberta’s finest swamp heshers from your web browser." Download it here. In related news, Nickelback released this video in response to all the hatred lately. (more…)
So Blabbermouth is reporting that a much-maligned band iz back together, and already people are up in arms as if the world were being subjected to a third Bush term. Before we never address this topic again, let's remember a 20-year-old chorus from MINISTRY.
Who the hell cares? Why are people so bent out of shape about this band getting back together? Are you afraid of the almost entirely unfathomable chance that they're going to start having hits again after being universally ignored for years? Even if this band gets popular again, are you paying such close attention to modern rock radio that this band will make your existence even more miserable than it already is by sitting through 50 minutes of commercials and NICKELBACK? If you're deeply bothered by this bit of news, then the problem isn't with the white guy from the LIL' BOW WOW video. And no, we're not linking to that.
The reaction to the new METALLICA record, Death Magentic, is split with people either saying this is Metallica's return to their roots and others blasting the record, thinking this band's time has passed. There have been many critiques of the new record, whether it be that some of the songs are too long or the audio quality of the mix is just terrible. Well, one fan must really hate Rick Rubin, or just have a lot of free time on his hands, as there is a new Myspace page in the wild for a band called Clipping Death. A band, whose entire purpose is creating Metallica parodies blasting Rick Rubin, such as "Master of Muppets", whose lyrics start:
End of session day, Rubin works away:
I'm your source of song-destruction
Tunes that hurt you ear, poor sound engineer
Leaving spikes on my instruction
Trust me you will see
Volume's all you need
How I'll limit you
Some funny stuff. He even re-worked all the band's albums to be a parody statement on how much the sound of the new record sucks:
