You Suck!!

Written by: Herzebeth

So the culture of "You Suck!" arrived and it's stronger than ever...

I was all happy polishing my nice CD collection, I noticed my lack of a buckethead album so I went to the local record store just to find almost every single album by that fellow is more expensive than a piña colonic, so I bought the following items instead:

Buckethead - Enter The Chicken
The Kooks - Konk
Mogwai - Rock Action
Godspeed You Black Emperor - Slow Riot For New Zero Canada EP

All of a sudden an old guy (you know with geek glasses, short hair an old candlemass shirt and the classic old man fat belly) basically just looking old (he was maybe 40 or so) came to me and said...

Old Dude: So I noticed you are wearing a Carcass shirt, cool band and all, you going' CD huntin' today aren't ya'?

I thought..."uh a friendly geek, what a nice thing..."

Herz: Sort of, I just wanted some Buckethead for my collection and...

Old Dude: *Going Crazy* Buckethead?!?!?!!? what the fuck are you doing wearing a Carcass shirt if you like Buckethead?

Herz: Well uhm...what's the big deal, I'm open minded I guess...

Old Dude: *sees my new CD's* and Mogwai? Dude you suck!

Herz: WTF?!?!





Old Dude: *enters an office while looking really geek and senior*

Turns out the dude was the owner of the fucking store; so it makes me wonder, a dude who's almost 40 years old owns a record shop, he's a metal-head and hates almost everything that doesn't sound classic or old-school...then I figure, why the fuck does he opens a record shop with tons of rock albums and lacks of musical appreciation...to feel better about himself? to buy food for his kids? to earn the right of saying "you suck" to people with non metal albums on their to-buy list?

Are we all elitists? me calling him a Geek doesn't makes me that open-minded neither right? we then have "anti-poser" topics throughout the entire forum, I've seen people throwing bottles at emos and posers in concerts... yes they suck...but why really?

The thing is, maybe that old dude should have been polishing his phonograph while listening to old hippie bands like May Blitz or Iron Butterfly...he decided not to and starts listening to metal to feel less old...good for him, way to go!... but then bashes a helpless little kid (me) for buying things he doesn't like, WTF?

why the hell do most people wants to feel more like a connoiseur by telling other people "they suck"???

In the end there will be always someone more clever than you, more experienced than you, with ten times more CD's than you and so on...still we see someone with less stuff and we obviously take the chance and inmediately say "You Suck"!!!! it feels so warm and nice...but it's fucking wrong...right?...right? come on I KNOW YOU'VE USED THIS PHRASE MORE THAN ONCE!!!

so anyway, this was my nice experience this day, if you didn't like it just read the title again

Slow Riot For New Zero Canada is like the best thing ever.

But I see this all the day. Closeminded metalheads I mean. They just do their job with everyone, but are nicer with metalheads. He was probably sad because of a friendly metalhead de-metalizing himself with some shitty nonmetal music. What a shame of metalness.

Maybe I am close-minded when it comes to music outside of metal, so what?
Metal has enough variety in it to keep me interested. I am open-minded within metal but close-minded outside of it.

As for The Mars Volta they have enough metal/hard rock (=metal no mattter what the revisionists say ) within them for me to consider them metal/hard rock.


¬_¬ Hey Marcel... are you really serious? hehe come on! "I am open-minded within metal but close-minded outside of it", but you are the one that has written on his signature "Member Of The True Crusade Against European Flower Metal"... well it is just a comment hehehe...

As long as it's a kind of tongue in cheek thing it's okay, in my opinion. I thought most people grow out of this attitude when they reach puberty, guess it takes marriage in the more extreme cases. But in all honesty, European Flower Metal does suck a little

Finally someone who gets it
Of course it is tongue in cheek. Okay I don't like 99% of the European Flower but I am still willing to check out new bands (same goes for the gothic metal scene and female fronted scene) just in case there are some good bands in there.

OPen-minded doesn't mean you like everything, it means you are willing to give everything a fair chance.

Well now your statement sounds a bit different and I'm with you, yeah, you don't have to like everything, but you can always check something promising or new. I like how you said "Give everything a fair chance"

And yes, European Flower metal sucks a little... but also other Metal subgenres have sucky bands (maybe more than the so called EFM)

I guess if someone told me I sucked for a kind of music I like and it turned out to be the owner of the fuckin record store I would be like "Not as bad as the customer service in this store" the guy has no class I tell you, no class.

First of all, Buckethead kicks balls, he gives you toys at his shows. Secondly, I can totally relate to you. People think I'm a poser just because I don't listen to all things metal. Hell, I listen to just about everything but modern country and modern rap and hip-hop. Somehow those genres has lost their meaning over the generations. But back to the point, No one. and I mean NO ONE ever has a right to judge anyone on the music they listen to. To judge someone on their music is the saddest thing ever, cuz its only for that person to think they seem cool. Sorry old dude, music evolves. I can name fifty songs better than "In A Gadda Da Vida".

What a 40-or-so-yrs-old-geek-dude-with-glasses-short-hair-and-an-old-candlemass-shirt-and-not-to-forget-the-classic-old-man-fat-belly

Be open-mind but be not open-mind, I think there are some limits! be a muslim and be a christian while you are atheist. it seems very disguisting. but you can be an atheist and respect others, you can be a christian and respect others. and you can do it in music too. but you cant love raps and metals and rockers and popers and suckers all together! but you can respect them, but no need to hide your hate I think. just be yourself.

I would say: Go to hell, pick these album and push them into your [insert a dirt hole here].
