Metalsucks Loses The Plot Over “Racist” Kid Rock Merch

Metalsucks Loses The Plot Over “Racist” Kid Rock Merch

In case you don’t keep up with the latest KID ROCK news, the five-time Grammy Award nominee (proof there is no God) caused some drama last week when he released a line of pro-Trump merch. The new collection includes a ‘Makes America Badass Again’ cap, and three t-shirts; one of which displays a map labelling the U.S states that formed a majority vote for Hillary Clinton as ‘Dumbfuckistan’, and the pro-Trump states as ‘America’. Kid Rock ripped the idea for the ‘Dumbfuckistan’ shirt directly from a meme (pronounced me–me) originating from Club Virgin 4chan, with a user posting a picture of the map in question although with said roles reversed. ‘Dumbfuckistan’ was the name given to the pro-Trump, majority-republican states, while the pro-Clinton, majority-democrat states were labelled ‘America’. In response, another user posted the following comment: ”This is precisely why Trump won. Because people are fucking tired of being called ‘Dumbfuckistan’ while being in a constant threat of being labelled “racist, idiot, misogynist” and so on when they try to defend themselves. You are the reason people are fucking tired of your “better than thou” shit. You are why Trump won.” Anon was partly correct. Aside from the obvious fact that Hillary Clinton was a fucking warmongering, email-leaking, rapist-marrying troglodyte, the Trump win can also be attributed to the bratty and elitist faction of the left who went completely off the deep end during the election cycle. Call them whatever you want; the ‘regressive’ left, the ‘authoritarian’ left, it doesn’t really matter. They are what they are, and yes, they’re partly responsible for Trump taking the top job. In...
Convicted Pedophile/Former LOSTPROPHETS Frontman Ian Watkins To Release New Music From Prison

Convicted Pedophile/Former LOSTPROPHETS Frontman Ian Watkins To Release New Music From Prison

Remember back in June this year when disgraced former As I Lay Dying frontman Tim Lambesis somehow gained access to the band’s official Facebook page in prison and posted a Happy Father’s Day message to all his fans? Yeah, same here, and it was a right laugh. Not quite as funny as when he tried to sue a Californian medical team who were responsible for his treatment in prison, claiming their negligence led to him growing a set of tits and demanded $35 million for the trouble. In short, laughing at people who are in prison is wildly funny, and my friends and I often make a day out of heading on down to our local penitentiary to have a hearty chuckle at the weak-willed sad men in jumpsuits, trudging around the exercise yard holding little hope for the future. Hilarious. What’s not quite as funny, however, is when convicted pedophile and former Lostprophets frontman Ian Watkins pulls the same sneaky trick, somehow gaining access to social media — in this case Twitter — to advise fans of his new and upcoming musical project, L’AMOUR LA MORGUE. New! SEQUENCE INITIATED https://t.co/uGCu53LOou on #SoundCloud — ian watkins (@ian_watkins) November 21, 2016 For the fortunately unfamiliar, Watkins was sentenced to 35 years in prison in 2013 after multiple counts of sexual offences with a minor, including a one-year-old girl, with one prosecutor describing Watkins as “potentially the most dangerous sex offender” they had ever seen. It appears that not only are you allowed access to social media while in prison, you can also apparently gain access to recording equipment to smash...
THE AMITY AFFLICTION Fail To Win ARIA, Complain Like The Whiny Pack Of Bitchboys They Are

THE AMITY AFFLICTION Fail To Win ARIA, Complain Like The Whiny Pack Of Bitchboys They Are

Ah yes, The ARIA Awards. Bloody marvelous, aren’t they? A celebration of the best and brightest talent in the Australian music industry, with countless artists vying for the much coveted ‘Album Of The Year’ prize in their chosen genre. From it’s humble beginnings way back in 1987, with the Daddy of Australian power ballads John Farnham taking out both Album and Single Of The Year with Whispering Jack and You’re The Voice respectively, it’s launched the countless careers of some of our most well-respected Australian musicians, and is undoubtedly the highest honour in the industry at large. Except that it’s not. Nobody aside from latte-smashing industry snobs and stuffy label executives really give a shit about the ARIA’s, and winning an ARIA has rarely been an indication of anything other than your popularity within a certain group of industry figures from your chosen genre. Each genre category winner is decided by anywhere from 40 – 100 ‘notable’ individuals within that genre, while the other awards are determined by the ‘voting academy’; a group of around 1,000 people accepted into the academy via special invitation. Having established that, one would assume that if your band doesn’t happen to win the ‘Album Of The Year’ in your genre category, you probably wouldn’t give a shit, right? They’re industry awards after all, and you’re in a band for the people, man. Fuck those normie record label scum with their genderfluid pomeranians and almond microbead genital scrubs. They can suck 1,000 flaccid dicks while you smash out another innovative record that gains the adoration of your fans yet fails to capture the attention...
MARTIN SHKRELI Will Leak Unreleased Nirvana, The Beatles Tracks If Donald Trump Wins U.S Election

MARTIN SHKRELI Will Leak Unreleased Nirvana, The Beatles Tracks If Donald Trump Wins U.S Election

Smug-faced pharmabro Martin Shkreli has once again proven to be the greatest supervillain of our time by vowing to liberate his entire collection of rare and unreleased music, including previously unheard tracks by Nirvava and The Beatles — but only if Donald Trump wins the U.S election. If Trump wins, my entire unreleased music collection, including unheard Nirvana, Beatles, and of course, Wu-Tang, comes out, for free. — Martin Shkreli (@MartinShkreli) October 27, 2016 He then live-streamed a video of himself supposedly listening to the unreleased The Beatles tracks, although whether they’re actually in his possession or if this is just another expert-level troll from the colossal shithead remains to be known. RELATED: MARTIN SHKRELI Trolls World Media Because He’s An Evil Genius Shkreli rose to prominence last year after his drug company Turing Pharmaceuticals acquired the rights to the drug Daraprim, used to treat specific symptoms of AIDS and cancer patients, and raised the cost of an individual pill from $13.50 to over $750. However, the mainstream media’s portrayal of Shkreli was skewed at best, with many of the original reports failing to contextualise the price-hike as a standard practice within the pharmaceutical industry. Shkreli’s greatest offence was remaining unapologetic of his obligation to his shareholders, and one that thrust him into the limelight as the poster-child for corporate greed. Ladies and gentleman, the choice is yours. Elect Hillary Clinton and get bombed by Putin, or elect Trump and score some unreleased music from two of the most influential bands of our time. Bit of a no-brainer,...
11 Shit Questions For Shit Bands: Zeolite

11 Shit Questions For Shit Bands: Zeolite

Zeolite are three blokes from Tasmania. Yes, Tassie. That tiny little island full of breathtaking landscapes, fine wine, and meth. They’re hitting the road next month with Melbourne lads Bury The Kings on The Only Curse Tour, so we thought we’d catch up with frontman Fraser to have a chat about chicken nuggets and half-naked children. Cheers. — Do you have riffs? If not, why do you feel it is acceptable to constantly dog the boys? Do you guys know what the definition of a riff actually is? A riff is defined as a cluster of notes in sequence in a song, the only way to not have a riff is to not have guitars, even if they are opens (TAKE THAT). We’ve been known to have guitars, thus the odd riff. We even have multiple notes. But sometimes the boys need a good doggin’, it’s good for them. Take that however you please. Why do the large majority of bands in your genre sound exactly the same as the bands in that genre ten years ago? Ever heard of progression? Or are you just happy to keep beating a dead horse before an ever dwindling audience? Progression is dead. Art is cyclical. Unless you are actually talking about beating off dead horses? Our kinda thing. Have you ever watched a movie? It’s exactly the same fucking thing. No one has original ideas, you just re hash an idea from 10, maybe 20 years ago, and everyone is all over it as creative genius/plagiarism. Which? Seems to be a flip of a coin. Can you give us a rundown...
