The worlds greatest muppet band, Dr. Teeth & the Electric Mayhem.
This is one of my all time favorite Black Sabbath songs. This one is credited to the whole band, but it was actually written entirely by Guitarist Tony Iommi — the godfather of heavy metal guitar.
This song was off Master of Reality, Black Sabbath’s third album and best selling album in the United States. Because of the imagery in their stage sets and the fact that some of their songs were written with themes of the occult in mind, many people wrongly accused Sabbath of being a satanic band.
This song could probably be considered the first “Christian” heavy metal song, with its decidedly pro-Christianity lyrics.
Here’s some Rolling Stones, for no reason other then I’m in the mood.
Well I went over to visit Dan O. at Schismatic Pandemonium from LaGrange, Ohio and he found a meme from Hammer that interested him, well it interested me too since I wanted to try and post more non-political stuff.
My inner geek loves this stuff, as back when I was in the 9th grade and in a fledgling rock band, called strychnine, instead of honing my craft and practicing my bass guitar skills — I spent all my time designing album covers. Hence, the band never got anywhere past a regular rotation between our parent’s basements and garages.
Well, here is my chance to design more cover art and here is my bands debut album…
Since Dan O. and Hammer tagged everyone, I too will tag everyone. Anyone else who wants to try, here’s how it goes:
You are about to have your own band’s CD cover.
The first article title on the page is the name of your band.
The last four words of the very last quote is the title of your album.
The third picture, no matter what it is, will be your album cover.
4. Use your graphics program of choice to throw them together.
Anyone who tries it, let me know so I can scope out the results.
Tom Morello and Zack de la Rocha, the guitarist and vocalist respectively for Rage Against The Machine, could learn a lot from these guys. Unfortunately, here in America its trendy to be a communist, when you can sing about the so called glories of communism while living in a free country devoid of the oppression of communism.
The following is the trailer to an upcoming movie about the underground music scene in Cuba called, �Cuba Rebeli�N! In the video Gorki Agula, the singer of the band Porna para Ricardo, who was jailed by the Castro regime for his song lyrics, talks about how he should have the right to play music critical of the communist regime.
The band, Porno para Ricardo, is not left-wing, nor are they right-wing they are not members of any political party or endorse any political movement. They just know that communism is an unjust system and they want the right to be able to express that freely.
I bet if Gorki Agula were a jailed musician from a pro-Bush government somewhere in the world, their would probably be a benefit concert for him headlined by Rage Against The Machine and the like.

What action exactly warrants the term “sellout” to be used in reference to an individual? Its an interesting topic of discussion, which most usually is used when it comes to the world of popular music. According to Merriam-Webster the term “sell-out” when used as a verb has a couple of different meanings, the most common one of course being, “to betray one’s cause or associates especially for personal gain.”
J. Kelly Nestruck, a music sub editor at the Guardian Unlimited, recently wrote a piece in reference to Bob Dylan — in which he poses the question — is folk icon, “biggest sellout the world has ever seen”?
The reason for this editorial piece? Apparently Mr. Dylan has recently starred in a pair of commercials for Cadillac, particularly for the Cadillac Escalade.
How many roads must a man drive down before you can call him The Man? The answer my friends, is one road, if that road is driven down in a gas-guzzling Cadillac Escalade.
Bob Dylan the “countercultural icon” – note the extremely sarcastic quotation marks – has sold out so many times that you’d think nothing would be shocking anymore. He’s gone electric, he’s gone Christian, he released a live album exclusively at Starbucks. He’s even written a song for a movie starring Katie Holmes.
But none of that bothers me. It’s the year 2007. Who cares? He’s a maverick! He’s Dylan!
His latest act of judas-ery, however, is too much for even a cynical, consumerist nihilist like me. Why on earth would someone who possesses the intelligence of Dylan shill for the Cadillac Escalade? Has he not heard that the climes, they are a-changing? Read More…
So apparently plugging in his guitar to an amplifier, releasing a live album for sale at a coffee house, writing a song for a Katie Holmes movie and even embracing Christianity were all acts of a “sell-out” but forgivable. Now however, at least according to Mr. Nestruck, Bob Dylan has gone too far. His latest slap in the face to those who idolized him cannot be forgiven, for he has committed a blasphemous act in the Church of Global Warming.
Mr. Nestruck has drawn the line at that act, I’m sure it was painful to forgive Dylan when he found faith in Jesus Christ, but this blasphemous act towards Al Gore and his Church of Global Warming cannot be tolerated.
Enjoy Dylan’s music. Enjoy his radio show. But don’t look to the man for any sort of spiritual or moral guidance. With these ads, he has lost any integrity he had left. It makes me wonder, when he sang ” I’m drivin’ in the flats in a Cadillac car” on 2001’s Summer Days, was it just product placement?
I’ve read and then re-read the piece, because at first I honestly thought it was just a witty attempt at sarcasm, but after reading the piece a third time as well as the comments to it, to which the author replied. It became obvious to me that this guy was serious, after finding his personal blog where he called Bob Dylan the new Joseph Goebbles — because apparently appearing in an ad for a “gas-guzzling” vehicle is tantamount to spreading Nazi propaganda.
Bob Dylan is doing ads for the new Cadillac Escalade. In the past, the Escalade has been named the SUV that is the worst in terms of fuel economy. That’s like being named the most antisemitic Nazi. So, the Escalade is like Hitler. Ergo, Dylan is the new Goebbels.
This type of moral equivalence not only makes me sick to my stomach, but also makes me sad when I think that this type of twisted logic is even possible.
