And yes, while I do consider myself too good for American chocolate (the only two exceptions being Dove and Ghirardelli) I am definitely not too good for ex-Christian Arkansas goth metal.
Evanescence was Christian at one point? I couldn't tell. Then again, I didn't exactly pay attention.

I don't really care. I like their music, it's more about hating your ex boyfriend and suffering from depression than about Jesus anyway.
Ahh, right.

Why are they even concerned about that, though? I mean, it's the US. Most people and their dog love Jeebus. I would have thought it'd be a selling point.

Disclaimer for LM and the Maj. and anybody else who may care: when I use "Jeebus", I'm not mocking Christianity per se or any of its genuine, head-screwed-on adherents (i.e. those of you here). Rather, I'm mocking the over-commercialised, watered-down, megachurched bullshit quasi-religion that Christianity all too often becomes.

In some ways, I use it to distinguish what I'm talking about. Jeebus is when I'm taking the piss out of fundies, Jesus is serious theological discussion and so forth.

Fair enough. It's also a solid Simpsons reference.

Their early stuff is especially laden with religious imagery (but really no more than U2), that's sinced seemed to mostly taper off though.

Their market is rebellious teens. The kind that use their allowance/daddy's credit card to buy dark clothes and makeup at Hot Topic (mass produced, overpriced goth/"punk" wear for teens who want to be different though it fails when everybody shops there so they all end up looking the same anyway), if they let themselves be labelled as Christian, that would be too acceptable, and thus they'd lose their fanbase


Also, wtf:

Okay, I'm assuming this goes to some quiz thingy:



But when I first saw it, I just saw the main text and went "whuh", I mean if I were a four member rock band, I think I'd notice

My high school mercifully didn't have many of those types, but far too many surfer guys who thought they were just so fuckin' cool. You know, I'm-God's-gift-to-women types. But when you've gone to a Gold Coast high school, you tend to have gotten that.

When you said "pepo", I had think for a second before remembering "oh yeah, pedokiss!"

I'm shocked it's not a picture of Hannah Montana.

Yeah, they should just lock that now. A pic of Scarlett is probably the highlight of Pedokiss' stint here at interference.

I think it's just plain scary that this thing is suggesting I'm someone else without realizing it. And not just that... four seperate someone elses.

You're like God. Except a quadinity, not a trinity.

Depends on how much power is being divided here.

Mudvayne is almost as bad as Disturbed. Not quite, but in the same ballpark:


In this hole
That is me
The dead are rolling over
In this hole
Thickening
Dirt shoveled over shoulders

I feel it in me
So overwhelmed
Oh, this pressured center rising
My life overturned
Unfair the despair
All these scars keep ripping open

Peel me from the skin
Tear me from the rind
Does it make you happy now?

Tear meat from the bone
Tear me from myself
Are you feeling happy now?
