This is hilarious beyond comment.

Good, now if the rest of the world would follow suit, perhaps we could clean up all of these chemically and hormonally imbalanced attention starved wack jobs that listen to that horrible dog shiat.

Take your meds, wash your hair, remove the black makeup, get some respectable clothes, turn that shiat music off and get a farking job!

The fact that they still call it "heavy metal" says something.

I have respectable clothes, my hair is clean, I don't need meds, I have a job and a respectable major, and I listen to black metal. No problem there.

This article is poorly written, it doesn't really make sense.

I do not think the stoners will protest too much...


'nuff said!

I thought Head Bangers were already medicated.

the original ban on heavy metal was wrong and an attack on free expression, but this goes so much farther i can barely believe it's happening. they're farking drugging these kids because of the music they listen to. it makes me want to vomit.

I agree with lilgorgor, this is repulsive to any human rights movements worldwide.

I disagree.. I support the medication of these retards.

Strong statement from someone whose bio reads, "I like to drink heineken and then vomit.".

I think all farkers should have to medicated with beer and jack daniels.

Since when does all metal deal with Satan? I think metal is the best music out there, and I don't wear makeup or have piercings (even though I'm the exception, not the rule). Maybe some metal doesn't have any real meaning, but a lot of it does, and it isn't popular enough to be on MTV and get watered down, so there.

Look at the picture in my bio, and you will see one of the greatest metal bands ever: Mudvayne. Yes, they wear makeup, but that's not the point. The makeup lures people; the music makes them stay.

First thing that came to mind was "I Wanna Be Sedated" by the Ramones...

(I know, it's not metal)

Just because there's no metal bands in the mainstream doesn't mean it's Satanic.
2001-08-13 06:05:09 PM  
Sure it does! Oh, and polka and Gregorian chants are Satanic too.
2001-08-13 08:28:23 PM  
Y.Dload do you even know what black metal is?
farkin kids.
2001-08-13 08:54:20 PM  
Okay, I am a kid; I didn't say Mudvayne was black metal. I didn't even use the word "black". Don't yell at me.

Metal rules, but I don't listen to much black. Ohh no, loud music. Must medicate!... of course, this is a muslim country.

the article was about people that listen to black metal not metal in general.

European metal and hard rock kicks ass.Cool bands like Children Of Bodom and Kovenant(both Finnish) and Rammstein,Megaherz,and OOMPH! are over there.Better than any American music I've heard in a while.This metal they're talking about sounds like the dumb stuff such as Cannibal Corpse we have over here.Oh,and I do not wear the black makeup or facepaint,except when I want to feel "pretty".The medicating part sucks,though.Also,wasn't there traditionally head hunting in Southern Asia?

Lets see: conservative country encounters a form of expression which doesn't fit in with the norm. They make up stories to make the "rebels" look evil, and then medicate them to take away all creative impulses. Yep, thats about right. Funny how some people with freedom seem to promote this action.

Only problem is, most of today's classified "Metal" and "Rock" aren't that: they are more along the lines of Rap (or Rap Core, they had to make a genre of their own so as to not embarass real artists), or Alt. Music in America has went downhill due to comercialization. Thats why we are seeing greater respect for oversea bands once again, like Iced Earth, Blind Guardian, Gamma Ray, and Helloween.

fifth, all those bands suck and they get no respect from me
