FTA: Here the Heene Boyz, who are touted by their notorious dad as "the world's youngest metal band," dress up like medieval warriors and film themselves playing their song "World of Warcraft."

Well their notorious dad is going to learn another notorious lesson, by losing more money, because of a term we call 'copyright infringement'.

No. Go away. You lied to get attention, were disgraced and you don't get another 15 minutes.

Why am I not surprised that the article very quickly turned to be all about dear ol' dad? I'd bet almost anything this entire band and everything about it are completely his concoction.

I got mid way through and came up with this exact conclusion myself. Another dog and pony show.

Balloon boy? Oh my god, is he still up in that thing? That is a long time to be flying around in a balloon. He's probably, like, Balloon Corpse by now, or even Ragged Balloon Skeleton. They really should have tried to land that thing before now, before it finally, today, turned tragically into a metal band.

Looked them up on youtube. Their music is horrible, videos are amateurish. Try out "Latte Vampiress" if you dare. A giant steaming pile of shiat.

Maybe I'm just stoned, but I totally forgot what this thread was about when I saw that. I forgot about everything. My very essence left me at that sight. I have stared into the abyss, and it has stared back with the face of some farked up pig-dog thing. And I feel hollow now.

If they weren't home-schooled they would have the crap beaten out of them daily.

That is actually from one of the earliest films... 1907 I think.

My guess is that Dad is making him sing those awful songs as payback for ratting him out about the balloon hoax. "I had to go to jail because of you. Get your ass on that stage NOW!"

Ok I did and... There is something interesting going on here..

Welp.. They aren't musicians and they aren't playing any of that music someone is screeching to. The drummer shows no signs he has ever played drums before and the chords the kids use on the guitar are those fake random `I have no idea how to play' chords people use when pretending to play guitar.

So, not only is the music awful, it's entirely played and recorded by someone else (probably an adult)..
 
2012-12-12 04:54:53 AM  
those kids are so metal SATAN owes em each 20 bucks!
fark those attention whores.
also, see styckx's post. they have no tasty lix. only shriveled dix.

Oh god, I'm seriously not the only person who thought of Old Skull when seeing this article/thread? As they say, nothing is obscure on Fark.

. . .and this.

I'm guessing that the crazy as fark father used GarageBand and cut a shiat metal album with lyrics he though a kid would come up with. He then doled out a bunch of cash to the writer of this article who either bought the story, hook, line and sinker, or had already become such a shilled, husk of his former self that he wrote w/e drivel the father wanted him to.

Underneath all that chorus and compression and shiatty production and layering are 3 kids that want to rock out. I can't deny them that, good on ya, kids, but, yeah, try to learn to record without all that bullshiat.

And, am I the only one that thinks they made the video so dad can video some skank and get away with it? Gawd help us if she's related, that would be ultra creepy.

I watched about a minute or so...holy shiat. I feel sorry for the girl in the video, or girls, it might be the same one, I don't know. And is he saying "lattee"?
