an ode to a Metalsetlists meme...

It started with a backfire...

Now you on the other hand.


AC/DC > Opeth

And I slowly but surely turned this into a wonder that everybody (except Brad) could enjoy.

For you n00bies, how did this premise work? Simple, everytime Brad said something stupid, I countered with a simple yet effective retort. For the rest of us its a trip down...2006-2007.

But that of course would be received like David Coverdale trying to sing Zeppelin songs.




Now of course, I was a fair fellow, so I wouldn't in every circumstance

Sometimes the joke would be turned on me, to hilarious results.

Also, Raffi > Sublime.


Fuck, Opeth > Sublime.

...and usually that's the point where it dies. Until...

...the reunion tour!!!

So after all this time, have Opeth become any good? Of course not (even if Brady fell back in love with them)!

But they are still better than Sublime, [redacted], Tegan & Sara, Dragonforce, Lamb Of God, Lil Wayne, Eazy-E, and Kanye West.

Thank you children, and good night.
