MUSIC: METAL: DEATHS: GWAR frontman Dave Brockie — aka ‘Oderus Urungus’ — found dead in Richmond, Va., home: police

First Peter Steele, now this.

Nothing to remind you that you’ve entered middle age like having all your bands slowly drop dead.

I guess if Holliston is renewed, they won’t have Oderus on every episode either.

I guess these GWAR songs I’m learning for future concerts… Will only ever be heard inside my house?

This sucks.



An animated comedy movie? Yes!

Oh, it’s done in 8-bit style? Double yes!

And it’s about a washed up, failing 1980s synthpop band?!?!?!  Triple yes.

Must see this when it comes out!


MUSIC: Slayer Guitarist Jeff Hanneman Dead at 49 | Billboard

Moment of silence for one of the best guitarists to ever grace metaldom. :/


MUSIC: Ween breaks up – Stereogum


But can’t say I didn’t see this coming – it’s been longer since a proper Ween release than at any point in their 25 year career.

I’m glad I got to see them live 7 times (10 of you count Gene Ween band and Gene Ween solo shows).

It looks like of my 3 favorite bands even (The Misfits, Atari Teenage Riot, Ween) — there is still 1 left: Atari Teenage Riot who recently reformed. (No, the new Misfits don’t count.)

This is the saddest music news since the death of Type O Negative singer Peter Steele.


MUSIC: little kids cover “Sonne” by Rammstein

…And apparently a lot of other Rammstein songs too. That little drummer girl looks too young to comprehend rhythm, but then she switches to a harp at the end of Sonne? And the singer-guitarist also plays the violin?  This is the best child music performance since that Metallica cover band with the 8 year old lead guitarist girl!

MUSIC: The Beatles Play Death Metal

Twist & Shout, by the Beatles. As Death Metal. With original 1960s black and white video. Good stuff. Pretty funny how well this synced.

MUSIC VS. POLITICS: Megadeth Frontman Dave Mustaine Endorses Rick Santorum | TPM2012

…the Skull Beneath dave mustaine’s Skin seems to have Hook In Mouth disease. this is a Bad Omen for all. someone should read him his Last Rites. he needs to give His Last Words and shut the fuck up. he is truly In His Darkest Hour. someone should get him some more Mary Jane. his Take No Prisoners attitude is ridiculous, and he shouldn’t support people who support Holy Wars.  to see him trumpeting the Symphony Of Destruction by the Skin Of His constantly-griting Teeth just feels like a Countdown To political Extinction. Washington Is Next? i hope not. i guess it’s No More Mr. Nice Guy, and that’s probably why metallica kicked you out of the band, dave. Go To Hell.
