Jesus, first you're denying global warming in your NOFX posts, now you're siding with discriminatory "anti-terrorist" laws! "Concerned about his appearance?!" Fuck his appearance, if they want to hang him for terrorism, they could indict based solely on late career musical output.

C'mon, James is a sweetheart.

Bob Rock's the one you should be going after.

I think I'll pop in "Some Kind of Moster" now.

Hell yeah he's probably a terrorist! I bet *HIS OWN FANS* felt pretty terrorized receiving a lawsuit from him just because they used Napster. I'm *really* open-minded to alot of music, but this might be the only band that elicits a small chunky piece of bile in my mouth everytime their name gets mentioned out loud.

watching Bob Rock's heart break when Hetfield reminded him that he was only their temporary bassist was topped only by Dave Mustaine finally getting a chance to give Metallica--on film--the guilt trip he'd been playing over and over in his head since '80-whenever. a must see for fans and haters alike.
