I was just listening to the radio and the announcer mentioned something about Eminem recieving death threats from al-Qaida because of his impersonation of Bin Laden on his new video. The first link (http://www.nme.com/news/102014.htm) from a quick search reveals very little but that its apparently true.

Is it just me or is that considerably hilarious? Everything about that guy is considerably hilarious. You've got to love how he stirs everybody up so easily.

Eminem rules at getting the stupid to resort to threats and violence.

but then again, I don't know if I believe you, Mr. LightatLaden (http://www.lightatdawn.isaterrorist.com/)

Personally, I have never listened to an Eminem song in it's entirety, and I could probably tell you as much about him as most of you could tell me about Blind Guardian: probably very little. Yet, I have read his lyrics, and I respect his position on the world. "Everybody's a hippocrate" is the message on what he writes, and he does it through insulting not only every institution of MTV, but also through insult of himself, such as the music video (no, I don't know which one) where he chased down a kid, because this kid bought his latest album and it had a parental advisory sticker on it.

"and selling beer to kids"

S.O.B! They finally caught me! And after all my clever dressing in drag to avoid detection! But they got me 9 inches too short! Bastards!

LMAO. Clever site. :D


>>also through insult of himself

Such as on his new single. "it just seems, everybody wants to discuss me / so this means im disgusting, but its just me im just obscene"

>>Yet, I have read his lyrics, and I respect his position on the world.

Dito. I confess to owning his CDs. You've got to respect that hes coming from somewhere nobody else is. Leaves you in wonder... "Wow, its rap... but... with meaningful lyrics?" ;)

I hope you realize that the whole world is informed about your homosexual (http://lightatdawn.isgay.com) and illegal hacking (http://lightatdawn.isahacker.net) activites.

I've got my eye on you :eek:


And yeah, I have 2 eminem CDs...don't have the new one yet. but then again I LIKE rap, so go figure.

Whoa. Enough pop ups at those sites? I think I'm safe as nobody is ever going to actually be able to read the page through the constant flurry of trying to close all them pop-up windows.

>>don't have the new one yet. but then again I LIKE rap, so go figure.

I'd suggest getting the new one. Very good stuff. I'd say his best yet. Square Dance. I like some rap as well. But only some. I'm really very picky as theres so much crappy stuff available. I really like a lot of the newer rock/rap hybrid bands like Linkin Park, Papa Roach, etc. You know the sound. RATM was the first and will always be the best.

I can imagine you in the old folks home many years from now, no teeth or hair, leading the sing along.

Come on, you remember this one.

"F*** you I won do what yo tol me!"
"F*** you I won do what yo tol me!"
"F*** you I won do what yo tol me!"

lightatdawn, you might like the executioners then. there hit song is called it's going down. i'm not sure if you've heard of them or not but you should check them out if you like that kind of music. and another band you might like is called karashi (sp?). they're a band from iceland that finally came to the states. i think their hit song is called stick 'em up. i don't really like them, though, but you might.

Personally I like a lot of different stuff, but it's mainly like punk, metal, and other stuff like that. I'm probably going to go buy the new Korn and New Found Glory CDs. They came out on the 11th just to let you know.

And I have tickets for the Warped Tour (coming to where I live (AZ) July 2nd). Bad Religion, New Found Glory, Thursday, MXPX, No Effects, and a ton of other bands are going to be there.

And as you can tell by my avatar I like Metallica. But it has to be old style Metallica (Kill 'Em All, Master of Puppets, etc...) days. Not that Load ........... But James said that they're next CD is going to be hard.:cool:

well tech... goin' down isnt a good example of the executioners...
all of the singing is done by Mike (Linkin Park), and alot of the scratchin is from the great joseph hann (linkin park)...

So why not listen to Linkin Park? Rock/Rap, they do it nicely.

I've only heard that one song from the xqtioners. i don't really know much about them except that they play the same style as most other rock/rap bands.


and i do listen to linkin park.

Ive got the new KoRn ;) cd. It's pretty damn good. I recently bought POD's new album, as well as 2 Soundgarden albums.

But back to the topic, Eminem was almost band from coming to the land of Oz. (Australia) Because some stupid politician thought his lyrics were a bad influence on children or some ........... I like "Marshal Mathers" style, he hits people with the truth (sometimes) and hits them hard. and they don't like it, I say stiff ...........

>>well tech... goin' down isnt a good example of the executioners...

True. I d/l some of their other songs to check it out and hoesntly, they suck. The only reason 'Its Going down' is so damn good is because of Linkin Park. I've got all of Linkin Parks demo songs from when they were Hybrid Theory as well. They do some nice stuff.

>>I recently bought POD's new album

I've got POD but I dont really like it anymore. Got boring reeeealy fast.

>>Personally I like a lot of different stuff

Dito. I've got over 150 CDs of different genres. Rap/Rock/Punk/Metal/Soft, heck, even got a couple of Big Bad Voodoo Daddies albums. Theres so much good music, why limit yourself to one kind only?

I like his songs and i don't care about the videos as long as the song is good. When I saw the movie for the first time....i thought it was funny and that all....:p

I love every type of music, just so long as there are good songs I'll listen to them - no matter what genre.

I'm just too damned lazy to buy cds :)

i just bought two CDs today: Korn (too lazy to capitalize the r and plus it has to be backwards anyways) - Untouchables. I've heard Here to Stay a lot from the radio and everytime I hear it I love the drums and guitar in the song. The othe CD I bought was Audio Vent - Dirty Sex Knights In Paris. One of the members of this band is the brother to one of the members of Incubis. But I'm not that big of a fan of Inubis, so hopefully I like this CD (I've only heard The Energy on the radio and I liked it).

The last CD I bought before these was Goldfinger - Open Your Eyes. I recommend it if you like punk/alt music.

Personally, I dislike eminem, mostly for his promotion of drugs.

Rammstein has to be the greatest band on earth. I don't know enough German to know what they're saying, so I can concentrate on something else while listening :) Nightwish has to be another favorite... their music is totally unique, nothing like i've heard before.

right.....
i trust james. i believe he knows the very definition of great hard metal. i don't think he washed up since ugh... reload. matter of fact, i think he's the greatest performer ever! he's not getting old, he's getting better.

i'm just a tiny bit skeptical...

Blasphemer! I love incubus!

Anyone like The White Stripes? I heard them on the MTV Movie Awards and they sounded pretty good...

A lot of good musical names being thrown around here. Not a big Korn fan but that A.D.I.D.A.S. song is pretty damn genius. I liked the White Stripes single when it came out but its grown irritating already and I barely even even listen to the radio to hear it so I'm pretty sure I wont be buying the album. Static-X is decent. Dont much like Metallica exept for a few songs. Goldfinger is good. Incubus is really good.

Oh, I thought I put "But we'll have to wait and see" after that comment, but I guess I didn't. However, I don't think Metallica (including James) is washed up. I think they were trying to appeal to a new crowd and it didn't work out as well as they had hoped. They really need a good next album to restablish themselves, because in my opinion they've lost a lot of credit over the past few years (in large part thanks to their Napser ordeal).
