The new formulation post-Pepsi is horrid. They made it taste exactly like cotton candy melted into ginger ale. In other words, just like a Monster.

So when are we getting GTA 6?

Poor Rockstar. I love them, and they're much cheaper than Monster (and generally better tasting, IMO).

I think the market is just getting too crowded, with Reign and Bang and Schlang and Bing-bong and Dowoppity all making energy drinks now.

Does it have the electrolytes that plants crave now?

CSB: Went to Rockstar concert years ago. They had pallets of them for free in the parking lot. The doors were late to open and people started throwing full cans. Smashed out several windows ect. After that year they stopped doing that and only passed out smaller cans after you were in the venue.

All those drinks are addictive, and I'm not sure, but I think theyre bad for your heart.  When you buy those drinks, do you say that you're on drugs?  Do you know what those ingredients do to your body?  I don't, because I looked at them and said, Those look like dangerous, unnecessary  shiat.
You think soft drinks are bad?  I'm pretty sure that these are much worse.

Everybody drinks these too.  Sometimes multiple times a day.  Does anyone ever give a fark about this kind of stuff, or were you just going to cry about it after your heart attack?  Everyone becomes hooked, and then tolerant, of whatever ingredients are in those drinks.

I simply don't understand the stupidity of consumer America.  Energy drinks are not tradition.  They were invented, made  purposefully addictive, what---20 years ago?--and now half the planet is drinking them, all due to advertising.  We don't even know what they are.  I drank half of one, once, and I thought I could run in the Olympics.  There is no way this is good for your body.  But now we've got an entirely new generation of addicts who couldn't get through their day without slamming energy drinks, which, just by coincidence, cost more than both sodas and coffee.

Exact same thing was done with the vapes.  Don't SMOKE!  Buy this brand new product that costs more, delivers the drug in a sneakier manner, breaks easily, is now super-cool, and of course, is just as addictive and probably as harmful as Marlboros.

When I hear people whining about how they're being victimized by corporations and shiat, I think of things like this.
I think you did it all by yourselves.  Is somebody forcing you to be a drug-addicted speed queen?

And no, I'm not going to forgive your student loan so you can afford more energy drinks, so you can rape the planet even faster.

Get some farking self-control people.  You're either whining about how tired you are, or you're whining about how you don't have enough yet.  Maybe lay off the speed.

Fun Fact: Rockstar was founded by the son of talk radio host Michael Savage and funded by the latter.

Back in '89 we went to see The Stones on the Steel Wheels tour in Atlanta at Ga. Tech stadium. Took the train down to the station and a shaving company (don't recall if it was Schick or Gillette) was giving out samples of their new disposable razor to people getting off the train. People going to a Stones show. In full concert mode. Being handed razor blades.

Rockstar tastes like a hot day at the zoo smells.

I paid off my student loans YEEEEEARS ago, you aren't paying crap for me; point of fact, I'm probably funding your social security (which will be bankrupt before I could legally retire). I'll drink what I want, thankyouverymuch.

The Rockstar Boom line is one of the few energy drinks that actually tastes pretty good. So yeah, there's a bazillion brands of energy drink at this point, but that one stands out for that reason.
