Fuck you, I won't do as you tell me!


One of my fondest memories of College (high school for you yanks) was when a friend of mine played that over the College radio and made an absolute mess of trying to mute every instance of Fuck.

I remember spending metalwork classes trying to slowly explain the lyrics to my more... narrow minded classmates.

They rally round your family... with a pocket full of shells!

I will reluctantly admit that song is one of the first I learned to cover for a band I was in. The guitar parts were challenging at the time, and hey, I was still learning so it was fun to play.

I don't like RATM that much anymore but their older stuff is pretty good, not sure what they'll do now that they're back together.

And linkin park is not metal, but another example of "radio metal" - while the name is misleading, they are only popular because of the pseudo hard-rock sound, simplistic song structure, and (as correctly pointed out) vapid lyrics. The rap-metal style doesn't help either, since that brand of ripping off Faith No More became popular and died with Limp Dipstick. (If only.)

Linkin Park is about as Metal as Hanson.

just out of curiosity though, how come you dont like them?  generally i like the sound they have, but i find their lyrics to be insanely vapid and empty.

For the same reason as Robthebarbarian: I can't stand the guy's voice.  And it (to me, at least) makes every song I've heard by them sound the same.

Grim Reaper's 'See you in Hell'. What a dumb song.

I agree with you there.  And for some crazy reason VH1 Classic keeps playing the video for that dopey song on its Metal Mania show.  Maybe the band has blackmail photos of the network president having sex with a chicken, or something.

Dan the Automator is the guy in Clint Eastwood and yes, he is black.

Actually, Dan "the Automator" Nakmura is the DJ who produced the first Gorillaz album. The rapper on "Clint Eastwood" and "Rock The House" was Del tha Funkee Homosapien, and yes he's black, although he was portrayed as an amorphous blue ghost in the videos.

By the way, in case anyone was still under the impression the Gorillaz are a real band, are you sitting down? They're not. Gorillaz is pretty much just Damon Albarn of Blur with the help of illustrator Jamie Hewlett, and various guest stars, session musicians, friends, etc.

Well, argubly, Del and Dan were pretty equal partners. I mean, Handsome Boy Modeling School and Deltron 3030 aren't exactly miles away from The Gorillaz (thugh usually better, I think - but I find Albarn hasn't done much worth bothering with after the first three Blur albums).

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!

oh wait, i already knew that lol.  cartoons are real.  therefore the band is real.  lol

still i like the sound that gets put out by them (it, whatever).  Its great how their cds are this interesting mess of different styles.  it means i dont like all they have on their cds but still many of the tracks are golden.

I know! It breaks my heart to hear earth-rending guitar ruined by some retard singing like a drunk frat boy belching the alphabet. I have a death metal fan friend who takes it very seriously when I bitch mightily about how her favorite singers routinely ruin music I would otherwise like.

If the vocals are stopping you from liking the music, you're not much of a music fan to begin with and would be better suited listening to "pretty" vocals such as those of No Doubt, Britney Spears or any number of other pop groups.

Oh, wait.. you listen to Black Label Society.. so I guess you kinda do listen to weak pop metal.
my entry made my girlfriend laugh a few times, the best I can hope for really.

I'd say Whalberg definately qualifies as really good.

And I've never understood this stupid trend of throwing jazz passages into metal. They are so very out of place and stupid. Yet again, the uneducated out there consider this avant garde and edgy. I consider it absurd.

You're kidding me, right? Clearly someone who has never heard of Atheist or Cynic.

Hopefully someone else jumped on this, but Dan the Automator is Asian, not black.
