DID YOU HEAR THE ONE ABOUT THE GIRL AT THE HIGH SCHOOL I WENT TO WHO FOUND A SECRET CAMERA IN THE GIRLS' LOCKER ROOM THAT BELONGED TO ONE OF THE COACHES?
Neither did I -- until this happened.
You know what? The girls had it comin', man. It was at the YMCA, for crap's sake. Young MEN'S Christian Association -- NOT Young CHICKS Christian Association!!!
I'm just kidding; it's a horrible incident, and it's sad to have been sparked by a teacher from my high school. If I were in control, I'd cut the guy's dick off and leave him in a sewer.
Anyway, I'm really pissed about something.
Two hardcore/screamo/crapshitrock groups known as The Used (ERNAGNAGN!!) and My Chemical Romance (BARRFGHGLHS;LGA!!) covered one of the greatest collaborations ever -- Under Pressure.
In the cover, the two frontboys of their disrespective groups project their nasal, prepubescent voices as if just being pulled out of their womb. The drumming is just crude and awfully stupid. The use of synthesizers is just horrendous. The whole song is a pile of shit sounds. Shit.
It's a song that should NEVER be covered. Never. David Bowie and Queen are the only people that could ever pull it off. Those stupid bands should be ashamed of their selves for producing an enormous injustice to a great, epic, even HISTORIC song.
It is by far the most offensive thing I've heard in a very, very long time. And don't think I use that word lightly. O-FFEN-SIVE.
This just gives me another reason to hate those two groups. I hope their labels drop them so that they'll have an incentive to go a new direction and crap out something worth a second of my attention.
