Why do people listen to that garbage?!?!.. errr. take your pick of what I meant by garbage.. death metal or 98 degrees.

Who's Leif Garret? Who would name their child Leif?
2001-08-03 09:11:44 AM  
Tina: The Ericksons did ;)

"Who's Leif Garret?!?!?" Only the greatest artist of the last half century, THAT'S WHO.

I even checked out Leif Garret's bio...nothing. No idea who he is.
2001-08-03 10:40:42 AM  
In case he hasn't noticed, people don't like real music anymore. Now they like this boyband/pop culture/nu-metal (basically rap core) shiat. Most people don't even know what Death Metal sounds like :(

Besides, don't you need to have a non girly voice in order to sing Death Metal ? :P

Forget new music, try to discover old music. Take a one-hit-wonder band, such as Martha And the Muffins, and you'll find more fun tunes that faded into obscurity.

Leif should not be giving advice to anyone.
2001-08-03 11:50:30 AM  
I don't get it???
2001-08-03 12:00:56 PM  
There's two songs I really think need to be done as death metal covers:

Mister Sandman and Shriekback's Faded Flowers.
2001-08-03 12:32:19 PM  
"Blind Guardian", the speed metal band, does have a cover of Mister Sandman. Pretty weird.
2001-08-03 12:33:49 PM  
Did anybody hear the version of Smells Like Teen Spirit Lief Garret recorded with the Melvins?
2001-08-03 12:41:43 PM  
I'd like to hear Iced Earth do a version of Mister Sandman for some reason. They would add in a bunch of growls, though.

Blind Guardian and Iced Earth are signed under the same Record Company which lets you buy C.D.s directly from their site... at a lower cost than stores sell them for (ex: Iced Earth's new cd "Horror show" costs something like 15-25 bucks (depending on whether you get the collectors edition or not) in stores. On their website its 11 something for the collectors (I believe, may have been changed by now).

And that wraps up today's useless fact, brought to you by me. Me, the one and only leader you will ever need. You can not understand the newspeak!

98 Degrees should record a death metal cover of "Pennies from Heaven". Dudes that would ROCK !!!

More advice from Leif -- "Do all the babes before they say, 'You were Leif Who?'".

until they star in an execution video I really don't care what they do, little bleeotches
2001-08-03 01:54:08 PM  
Leif Garret is obviously cooler than I had previously imagined.
2001-08-03 02:27:59 PM  
Waitaminute, does 98 Degrees know how to play instruments?
Or write songs? Maybe we should leave real music to real musicians.
2001-08-03 03:46:18 PM  
If only I could think of a way to combine the names 98 degrees and Dimmu Borger.
2001-08-03 04:11:49 PM  

That was simply wonderful. His vocals were uncanny. God bless the mighty Melvins.
2001-08-03 04:33:32 PM  
Buahahhha!! Leif Garret is a funny guy!

-he who stacks pork
2001-08-03 05:43:37 PM  
Nazzerov -- no girly voices in death metal? hop on winMX or whatever you use and download "Abigail" by King Diamond. THAT is some funny shiat.
