I'm afraid I've got some fabulous news for you.

I would do Masvidal.  And a younger, not fat Reinert.

Metal, gay?

You mean the leather vest with no shirt look, and the videos filled with sweaty guys working at a factory that seemingly makes sparks with not a woman for miles, those things were a clue?

I mean its not like gay men cant be agressive and masculine. We played an LGBT friendly rugby club the other day in the beer league and they were very competitive and dirty

Please don't say it was Freddie Mercury! I couldn't handle it if Freddie was gay!!

TFA: leather S&M garb


That was invented by Rob Halford if I'm not mistaken.

Leather jacket, motorcycle, hot chick wearing thigh highs... No way he's gay, dude.

Who? They're so influential, I've never heard of them.

Is this actually a big deal to anyone anymore?

Because People in power are Stupid: TFA: leather S&M garb

That's the only reasoning my ignorant-of-history brain can fathom as to why people didn't know he was gay.  He must have been the first gay man to dress like that, and the others emulated him.

This.

Also, who the fark are these guys anyway?

And is this just a cheap tactic to get publicity for a new album?

No matter how gay the act is, as long as you scream "SLAYER" it is totally not gay.  Don't matter what is in your butt at the time

Oh yeah, Who cares that someone is gay?
As long as they aren't Canadian.

I always thought it was a great credit to metal fans that when Halford came out, everyone said: ' HAHAHAHA, you think we didn't notice?'

Manufactured gay news is manufactured gay news. Isn't Rob Halford gay? Who the hell is "Cynic"?

I ABSOLUTELY DESPISE THAT SONG {I know, I know, stop liking what I don't like}.  I like skinink's lyrics better.  However, I REALLY HATE U-571 and Jon Bon Jovi was the best "actor" in that waste of celluloid.  Guess that means I'm gay for Jon.  Call me.

Came for Patton Oswalt, found Brian Posehn as well.  Leaving very satisfied.

I don't know who these people are, but I'd bang the ginger bear.
 
2014-05-08 08:30:38 PM
Who the hell are these guys?

Udo Dirkschneider...spectacular vocals, but an admitted homosexual.
Between him and Halford, it's amazing I turned out hetero.

Good for them!  Cynic is a freaking great band.  I actually stole their CD "Focus" from the Wherehouse and still have it.  It's like prog-death metal Rush with occasional auto-tune synth sounding vocals.  Great stuff, very original.  Takes a few spins before it really sinks in.  Good lyrics.  4.5/5 banging heads.

Death - Human is one of my all time favourite albums, largely thanks to the performances of these gay-rods.

cool to know.
 
2014-05-08 08:33:42 PM
Freddie Mercury and David Lee Roth?

They were also in Death, you know, the band that the genre Death Metal is literally(not figuratively) named after.
