Metal horn abuse

Thanks to the guys at Metal Sucks for bringing this old piece from The Onion to my attention – I hadn’t seen it before: Metal Council Convenes To Discuss ‘Metal Hand Sign’ Abuse. Pretty funny.

I would, however, like to add to this statement from the article:

"If your head is neither banging nor thrashing, you should not be throwing the sign," Butler said. "It’s that simple."

I think it’s also safe to say that it’s ok to throw the horns when in the company of someone extremely metal, as this photo of Dave with Hatebreed frontman Jamey Jasta:

He’s cool, but kinda short, no?

  1. Hatebreed entirely rule!

    And Dave isn’t exactly a short man, so Jamey Jasta can probably be forgiven 😉

  2. Yeah, Hatebreed is awesome. It doesn’t really matter if he’s short, because his positive and straight to your face lyrics really pack a punch.

    IMO throwing the horns is ghey, and is only done because people think that it goes along with the music. 0.01% of songs are about devil horns so whoever does it is ghey or handicapped.

  3. @lachlan haha yeah, also he’s kinda leaning forward too 🙂

    @joshua you’re an idiot, but not sure if you’re just “ghey” or “handicapped” yourself.

  4. I actually look like the Hatebreed dude except I’m way more buff.

    I’m a big Hatebreed fan too. What a cooincidence the guy looks like me, huh? 😛
