Now you're just being ridiculous.

why...

why should it matter.....it really comes down to whether you like extreme metal or not. in this cause melodic death metal. Dethklok is this generations Spinal Tap and the Monkees, and as a diehard metal fan, i must say, these songs fucking rip. Brandon Small has one of the most unique death metal voices ever, even if its for a character. The guitaring is also great and catchy, plus i will use a quote from Murder-Face himself to d"so if a baseball player is a fat and hits a homerun its not a homerun, it has to be perfect?" to defend the whole notion that its fake so why should we care. Though i think it would been cooler if they had like five small screens set up, and the characters were displayed on them instead of just the dark omnious figures infront of the screen.

Thank you for posting this, I haven't seen setlists of what is being played anywhere on this tour.

Do you go to the University of Kansas?

I really don't like the fact that they made it a "students only" tour.

Did Brandon say anything about doing another tour?

Besides, Gene Hoglan, King Diamond and Nevermore aren't backing Hillary Duff and Lindsay Lohan.
Exactly.

By the way, if you are trying to get me to stop and think about what value the show has, you are wasting your time, so you might as well stop here.
Doing the SAME thing, with a movie, is okay though?

If I'm not mistaken, Spinal Tap put out records. Spinal Tap played shows.

You just hate because it's a cartoon and it's popular.

@CoconutBackwards: Yeah, I go to KU. The tour isn't student only, you just have to pick up a voucher from the venue beforehand. And no, didn't say anything about another tour.

Comparing Dethlok to High School Musical.... Ssssss!

If people are having fun watching or listening to Dethlok, good for them.

I think what neilpeartjr. is really trying to say is he'd rather listen to atreyu than Dethklok, since theres real people in atreyu, it must be "real metal"!

The show's funny, the music kicks ass, how is good metal that is also funny "the worst thing to happen to metal"?
