Yeah, and I can just leave it at that. Yeah, I was in the WHO's Gau so I'm a change man, though. I'm reformed. Have you are? Have you? Have you found the Lord? The Lord is always been with me. Okay, don't ever question that, drew. I'm just I'm just checking. The Lord has never left my side. Well, I I just figured I bring that up because you know, a lot of times you just have to have faith.

And before we dig into this episode, Dave, I know, we want to say thank you again to one of our lovely and wonderful listeners, Melinda Barnett, who did send us some delicious cookies. And, Oh yeah, and I reached out to her personally through twitter on DM's direct message, and I oh shit something. Yeah, and I was like wow, I'm talking about these cookies, how good or cookies are and how much you change my life, and I was like maybe I should delete these messages. My my wife's going to read these and thin I'm having in a fail. Yeah, that's what's funny. Like, you know, when you when you I feel like a lot of times on twitter I see people saying that go these scumbags are sliding in the my DM's and I'm like, like, if I DM somebody, it's I'm making that because they sent me cookies, or like I'm like trying to get them to listen to the podcast. Like that. That's the excent of why...

I'm in your DM's, or I wanted or there's like a couple friends I talked to on twitter about like baseball or hockey cards from the S. Yeah, that's what I do in the DM's. I get it right, but I'm still just trying to say, like, you know, is so innocent and because, listen, these cookies not my freaking socks off, man, these were no joke. These were legit one of the cookies with the best cookie I ever freaking had in my life. And you usually wear and you usually wear two pairs of socks. I yeah, so something, Dude, flew right off my feet. It was like they were just like propelled with fuel. Or something. But yeah, man, and but I'm looking at the DM's and I'm like, Oh, I mean, I'm just praising this woman for the cookie. I did it all for the cookie. Huh. You did it all for I was like yeah, other, but you beat me to it. Yeah, well, we're both pretty cheesy, drew. But the thing was I was like, yeah, I don't know, I don't want my wife to see these, gonna be like what's going on here? Telling this woman she changed your life with her cookie. Yeah, I'm in trouble now. I've been the dog house, baby, baby, for those cookies here were delicious, but not. Yeah, on all seriousness, they were the best cookies ever. So yeah, totally. If you can ever hit up Melinda Barnett and try her cookies, you better they're delicious. MMM, they're good. Now let's move on to our episode. Here, Dave, we are talking about this night, late, late, s classic. Okay, faith. We're about faith from look biscuits, which was off their album three dollar bill, y'all. Yep, yeah, came out in nineteen ninety seven. Now, in case you didn't know, this is actually a cover. George Michael is the Oridge, is a writer of the song and he released this version off the album of the same game back in one thousand nine hundred and eighty seven. Now, did you also know, Dave, that are good friends Alvin and the chipmunks covered this song as well on their nineteen eighty eight album, the chipmunks and Chippetts born to rock. Really, I wasn't aware, but now I got to go look that up. I got to seek that one out. I feel like maybe we should have done this episode on that version, as supposed to olymp biscuit one. Well, did it chart? Was it a you know, I don't even know where that would happen. Like, you know, it didn't change records. Yeah, that's weird. I don't know when. Alvin the chipmunks? No, no platinum there. Well, I'll tell you what I mean. I played the shit out of that chipmunk's Christmas tape, that cassette tape I had from like the S or whatever. I think the cassette was probably from like the S or whatever, but Du when I was a kid I played that shit all the time. I'm sure my parents were like stop fucking playing that. Well, you know, it's even weirder about it was the chipmunks are probably just like adults and they of course, they just spit up the tempo to make them sound like chipmunks or whatever, but they're probably changed, smoking butts, drinking beer years laughing about like Oh yeah, get paid to do this. You know what I mean, like this is a ridodiculous but hey, whatever. You know, got to pay that electricity bill, man. They're like snorting blow off like a hooker's stomach. Yeah, like, all...

...right, let's do let's do all that. One for Christmas is my two front teeth. There you go, the Theodore Baby. Let it roll, it's put it on a wax. But, Dave, what are some of your memories of this song? Okay, I saw limp biscuit open for Primus back in Maine in the late s and before I even saw the band, I found it fairly interesting that Primus had a normal tour bus, right, they had their rock star set up. You seat outside. You very impressed. You like, okay, man, these guys know how to travel. Yet limp biscuit had a u haul that they put duct tape on to make it read three dollar bill. You haul. That's clever right. Considering the name of their record and then I saw him. They were okay. They were fairly high energy, which is something I could appreciate the time. But here's a little tidbit that some people might not be old enough to remember. They threw cassette singles out into the crowd, so I brought one of those home and I believe faith was on that. And Yeah, I don't know. I was never the big biggest limp biscuit fan. I guess it was like yeah, cool, I saw him. The other huge loddi Daddy du Fred or sucks. But those are basically my memories of Limb Biscuit and this did he hmm. Yeah, mine, I feel like my members are a bit different, because I even know where to begin write this album. I feel like hit me at the right time. You know, I was this angry, like angsty junior in high school at that time. Yeah, I was listening to mostly metal at that time, like corn deaf tones, fear factory toll. Still had my alice and chains, going on rage against the machine, vision of disorder, like our in our school, like hardcore music was very popular at that time, so bands like Earth crisis, you know Vod I forget some of the other bands that we listened to. But yeah, there were a lot of them that we listened to. So anything that was kind of heavy was popular at that time too. And and then we get this band right from Jacksonville, Florida. They come into the scene and and to your point, yeah, they were definitely full of energy, definitely full of anger, and so was I. You know, most of the people are hung around with had this album on steady rotation. I feel like ninety seven was Olympiscus, three dollar bill y'all in the deaf tones around the fur. I feel like those albums were getting regular play and everybody's car and at this point, I think all the cool kids in school had their gene coo jeans and bleached frosted tips with the giant wallet chain and limbiscuits CD. Oh, yeah, I had them. Yeah, I had the limb Biscuits d but that was about all I had in common with the cool kids, although I did have a lot of adidas jumpsuits back then. So still didn't help me outward out, I mean true. Yeah, feel like I was so angsty and angry. Well, why? And then you like, man, I was, I was jumps you crazy. So, knowing you and...

...your youth must have been a very interesting thing. It was. It was a weird kti young man. Yeah, correct. Well, let's just leave it at that. But before we get moving into the upside, let's let's give a quick little lesson on new metal. What do you think? Yeah, because I was thinking to call new metal. I was going to call it hybrid, because I was huge at that point in time. You know, you mentioned we're talking about LIMPUSCAP it. Of course corn. I think corn. Yeah, the catalyst for a lot of this, even though they really weren't. Yes, please educate me, sir. Yeah, because this something is the first time we've really talked about like a new metal or a band like this on this show. So and and LIPISC it. Does you know there you can call them rap rock, which I feel is probably a better description for them as opposed to new metal. But new metals so vague, right. And basically, new metal is alternative metal that has elements of other genres and they're like hip hop, funk, industrial, things like that. You know, rare's the occasion you'll hear a guitar solo and a new metal song. Usually they would kind of opt for like a DJ scratching or and corn. You just have like Jonathan Davis, like beatboxing or whatever, to where the fuck it is that he does off a new metal bands tune their guitars way down. Now, grunge, I think. Maybe keep me honest your day. I think grunge were the the first bands that I can think of that tuned their guitars down a bit like sound garden and Alison chains would use a drop d tuning. I don't I don't know if they're the first ones to ever do that. No, but the thing is I think with the new metal sound less than just the guitar tuning. It was at the bass strings were tuned so loose that they were actually, Oh yeah, off the stage floor because it was just corress. I can't, I don't want to imitate the song with my face, but you, anybody who knows what I'm talking about knows that sound fieldy. Yeah, yeah, and but baby have bands like corn would tune down, you know, even lower, and they would use a seven string. So basically a seven string you get a six string guitar a seven string. That seventh string is actually a thicker string than you know what. Then the top string that's they're already so it's almost like a bass string they're kind of putting on the guitar and they would tune their guitars all the way down to like a drop a, if I'm not mistaken, Cornwood, which is basically you're like a bass guitar at that point. But they would focus on the rhythm and beat as opposed to complexity. They would use like a lot of pedals, like a course or a Flanger, the occasional wah pedal with their guitars. Now going into rap rock right, I think our guys Rick Ruben Right, I feel like if you were around that time, I feel like Rick Ruben's name was definitely popping up with run DMC, the Beastie Boys, the Red Hot Chili peppers, amongst others. Run DMC and the Beastie boys might be the early adopters here, with their first mainstream rap rock song being a remake of walk this way. Between run DMC and Aerosmith, anthrax in public enemy collaborated on bring the noise...

...in ninety one, which is that's a cool song. I like that. But going back to eight, ninety ninety, your boys faith Mo more release their album the real thing. And on there was a massive single, some might call it epic. Get it, it was. So, yes, that is that's that's proper advertising there. Yeah, now, a great song, but yeah, epic definitely has rap rock in there. And that song was released as a single in Jenueror of one thousand nine hundred and ninety. And then you have the judgment night soundtrack, which mixed a rap group with a rock group. You had biohazard an onyx collaborating on a version of slam, which is pretty cool, and then we got rage against the machines debut album in ninety two, and a lot of these things, you know, kind of led to, I guess, the new metal genre blowing up in the mid S and I think people say corner at the epicenter of new metal, or at least where the first really hit it big and you know, kind of bring that genre, I guess you could say it, to the mainstream. But what are what are your thoughts on new metal? It sucks. Oh God, I hate new metal. I listen, I'm not big enough labels. I've said this time and time again. It's yeah, if you want to call something goth or emo or something, it's like, come on, man, it's just music, whatever. It's just how it how it makes people feels and make it feel good, as make you feel happy. Apparently made you feel angsty and angry. But I mean, whatever going to rise out of here. But yeah, if you, if you look at new metal as a whole in the way you just described it to we're it wasn't just a couple bands and maybe some of their songs. We're talking about a style that it produced. I mean it's just it's one of those things where could you imagine seeing a dude walking on the street now dressed up the same way you would have seen people dressed up at olymp biscuit show in say, yeah, two thousand? You'd be like, Whoa Toude, like, grow up, man, it's time to to reassess your life. And I think that's new metal as a whole. It was a fad, it was a whole thing that really did not make its impact on me long lasting. Yeah, and and for me it made an impact at that time, but I don't I'll talk to it a bit more, but I don't really listen to it all that often. Like everything, I feel like of late I have been listening to it a little bit more and buy a little bit more. I mean like maybe I might listen to a couple songs like every other week, so it's not like on regular rotation for me. But yeah, some of them I'm just like, what the hell was I doing back then? Right, but but there's a lot of there's a lot of bad ends, I mean that get lumped in there and again like it. Labels are kind of dumb, you know, like like the deaftones get lumped in as new metal. They are not new metal. Chevelle gets lump lumped in there. I wouldn't call them new metal. Fear Factory. I'm like those guys are like industrials speed metal, basically. I don't know why they get lumped in a new metal flaw. I used to listen to the shit out of them, but I haven't really listened to him too much of late. Godsmack they blow. Yeah, corn obviously new metal. I listened to their...

...first album a little bit and maybe like once a year I feel like I have like a corn week. I guess you could say it's kind of like Shark Week. But I listened to corn and and then I might go like the rest of the year without listening to them. It's kind of weird, like for like a week I'm like, well, I really want to dig into corn and life is peachy and issues and follow the leader and all their album at least our first like five albums or so, and then I'm like, okay, I'm good, yeah, I'll listen to you guys again next year. But Limp Bisco, I mean I haven't really listened to them, like I don't even know the last time I really gave their album a listen. It's got to be at least ten years. Yeah, for me, Lincoln Park. Yeah, I mean Lincoln Park. I listened to them every once in a while. Lost Prophets, hikes, that's a I'm not even going to go there. Papa Roach not a fan. Seven dust gets looped into new metal. I don't. I think they're just straight on metal. They're so good. Switched is another band there, those guys from Ohio. I actually they're probably one of the bands I listened to the most. Actually, but I don't. I don't know if I call them new metal necessary. I think they're just regular old metal stained. I hate them. Static X, I like them, tap root, I like them. That's kind of a there's a whole bunch of other bands. Of those the ones. Yeah, well, I was gonna say for the listeners out there. It just so you know, drew gets a nickel every time he named drops a new bit new metal band. So that's why he's really getting hot and heavy this list of bands he's throwing town concrete. Oh Yeah, Ding, Ding, I just got paid, slipping on, I'm just cash and checks. Yes, right, baby. Yeah. So let's look at their numbers from spotify. Limp Biscuit is over six point eight million monthly listeners on spotify, which I kind of finstounding. Yeah, yeah, George Michael's faith has been streamed over two hundred and fifty three million times. And also George Michael has over thirteen point six million monthly listeners. Also, George Michael was the shit, he was so talented. So he's amazing. And his version, George Michael's version of faith, hit number one on the US billboard hot one hundred back in December of one thousand nine hundred and eighty seven and stayed there for four weeks. And Limb Biscuits version did not chart on the US billboard hot one hundred. So there's that. Take that, limp biscuit. Yeah, put that in your pipe. Now this album, this the songs written by Limp Biscuit are pretty much angry, right. So how does the how does faith compared to the rest of the songs on the album? Faith doesn't fit in lyrically, necessarily, since they also didn't write it, but the rest of the songs are pretty angry. I think musically it's kind of similar to the, you know, the rest of the music on there, but lyrically, yeah, it's it definitely stands out. Now here's something I want to talk about real quickly. I'll significant other, which was their follow up album. I remember the hype for that album and it was massive, at least for, you know, everybody that I knew and like all the outlets that I followed and and I was just out of my mind waiting for that album.

What were some albums that you remember being like super excited to come out, like an album you might have liked, waited outside of a store to go pick up and round that time, anything by Stone Temple pilots. I loved STP oh boy. At that point in time too, I was really getting my groove going with David Bowie. So I don't remember what you're earthling came out, but when that came out I was super jazz to get it. Again, one of those things where I'd be willing to wait in line to purchase it, anything lemon heads related. But now I'm getting paid a nickel for very big named drop off the top of my head. But yeah, I'm wondering, though, with this question that you're asking me, is there one man in particular you're expecting me to say? No, okay, yeah, Bowie, faith, no more. All basically my usual suspects of bands I'd been following for a while and I really totally dug all their material from. Yeah, wasn't Limpist, and I'll tell you that. I mean I remember, you know, because that that time, you know, when that album came out, like I got it when it came out, pretty much, maybe not like immediately, maybe like a month or so after it came out. It kind of once it started getting around, and you know, at that time I was seventeen, so I was like I can, you know, go around to stores and go get albums like as soon as they come out, and I remember that when I was like insanely excited for. I remember the Tripod album from Alice and chains. When that came out, I was very excited about that one. Metallica load, because at that point I I was well versed in metallic and I was like I can't wait for load to come out, and then I feel like rage against the machines. Evil Empire might have either that or fear factories obsolete. We're probably the two albums that I was probably the most excited about. I'm like just could not wait, like I remember fear factor. I think I like pre ordered it at the wall, or maybe it's like Sam goody. It was one of those stores, and I because like back that he didn't have the Internet, or at least it wasn't, you know what it is now. And I would call them, I would go there. I be like Hey, is it out? Yeah, because I think it got pushed back like a couple weeks or like a month or so. Now would go like every other day, but like is it ready it and no, it wasn't ready yet. Well, here's one for you, and it's not exactly from that year, but when I was a teenager I had to do crazy ass chores to earn the money for my mother to buy a cassette megadeth countdown to extinction, because I was so hyped for that. And now ask me when was the last time I listen to that record? Hey, Dave, when was the last time he listens to that record? Oh, buddy, it's been decades. I mean it's amazing how you prioritize something in your life and you think it's going to be the biggest thing since sliced bread and then you age, you get older and go, Oh shit, I can't believe I was crazy for that stuff way back when, and that happened to be one of them.

Yeah, now it is. It is. I could take this conversation completely different direction, but I won't. But yeah, just about like you know, things that we thought were important when we were young and like now we're like what? But but yeah, it's like like those, a lot of those bands, and gently like limbasquet. I was like I love lamb biscuit. Now I'm like, no, I don't like Fred Durs as a douchebag and they're their music kind of sucks. Yeah, I mean corns, life is peachy was another one. I mean there's probably around the fur by the deaf tones to but you know, a lot of those, I mean I still listen to the deaf tones on a pretty regular basis, but they're so diverse and talented. I mean Chino is amazing, but yeah, but some of those albums I'll still like, I still listen to the awls and chains Tripod album. I don't really listen to fear factory too much anymore, like, I'm pretty sure, like I listen to fear factor like nonstop for like a good six years. Yep. So basically we're getting to the point that limp biscuit is one of those acts that does not age well, to the point where, no, you if you were there from when it was happening, you were like in that Prime Age, like you said you were. Oh Yeah, man, yeah, that that is not something you took with you as a journey in life. It was just yet again, like I mentioned earlier, a fad. That's what they were, you know. I mean what commercial of the on now that I want to say is Guyko with a woman has the broken car stereo and it keeps playing. I think it was nookie and yeah, yeah, off. You know. I mean in Fred Durs and it's any sheel like Fred there's walking by and he's like what you like? Oh God, this piece of crap. Look at you, piece of Shit, you know, and like, I don't know, man, but that's the thing. Like it's a joke. Now is a joke. Is Unbelievable, but that's just that's just how things work, man, with music, any kind of form of art, really, I suppose, except for maybe a painting, I don't see any van go guy go commercials. No, no, not too many, but still. Yeah, you know, just limp biscuit, man, it was a slinky. Well, actually know, slinkies are better than limp biscuit. What the Hell am I talking? Yeah, slinkys are things. Are Pretty good limp biscuit. They were tight rolled. I don't well, I don't want to say Chrystal pepsig's I fucking love crystal PEPs yeah, no, Co ed naked t shirts. That's what they were. Yeah, yes, they are Lim Biscuit. They are the CO ed naked tshirts of music. Yep, there you go. There we go, all right. If any anything else to an add or you want to just get right into our final verdict here, I guess we can get into the final verdict. I mean we mentioned it's a cover and and it bothers me because I don't think Fred Durris is a good singer. Off Him, obviously, but I mean when you listen to this song, it seems like he puts zero effort whatsoever into actually crafting this cover, when if you were like, let's say ween right, that might be your stick, kind of a little goofy and oddball and what have you, it...

...makes a little bit more sense. But I think this was just lazy. It was just terribly lazy. The energy is, in fact there at one point in the song when he proceeds to scream, and I think it's the his own original lyric to this song about getting the fuck up for the DJ start scratching, does like it was a great addition. Thank you very much for yes, yeah, Fred Durs Cheer, are a modern you're a Modern Day William Shakespeare. Yeah, he is. And in the DJ started scratching like he's got a ration and you go wow, okay, now I can see all the metal heads thrashing and Mohtion and going crazy to this man, but I mean I do remember being immensely popular. He said it didn't chart, but I mean it was on every car stereo that I can remember, every party I went to, people like yeah, man, got a crank faith and then later on they covered. What do they cover? The WHO? I believe. So they behind Blue Eyes. Yes, they saw the formula was effective for them and they tried to carry through with it. Keep on the keep those dollars rolling in the back door. I keep them rolling. They see if I'm rolling in. We should be ashamed of ourselves, should be cast of the streets, naked, it hard and feathered. But I'm say, you know what, Dude, I you know I've listened to them for so fucking long. I need to somehow use that knowledge, at least in Corny Dad jokes. So this is me kind of trying to get some value out of the wasted years I have spent listening to this fucking band. So, Oh, Yep, you're gonna listen to it, whether you like it or not. I yea, yeah, best the way it is. But I mean, yeah, my verdict is this song fucking blows, man, this sucks. This is a song gone wrong on so many levels. The band is a band gone wrong on every fiber of their being. I cannot stand limp biscuit, and I really if I woke up tomorrow and scientist said, Hey, listen all the bad memories, we can wipe them away with this little implant that we put in your brain, I say no, you don't need to do that. Just I raised all my memories of Limp Biscuit, please, and I would live content and happy for the rest of my days. Now, drew, what are your opinions on this song? But here's the thing, though. MMM, wouldn't you? Wouldn't you rather have those memories so you know now not to listen to them? No, I wouldn't, as if you, because if you have those memories removed, might be like, Oh, who's this limp biscuit? Let me check them out, and now you're going to ruin your life now. So I feel like you know what it's done. It's in the past. I don't. I know better than some listen to them. That means I have no taste and that I have no objective ear to understand what is good and what is pure trash. And if I raised my memory of limp biscuit yet found them to be grew delicious and worthy of my time, throughout the course of the day to listen to. I. I mean, I am not suitable to be mixed in with the human populace and I should probably be eliminated. Okay, fair, that's fair. What about you, man? Come on,...

...drew ski. What do you get? All Right? Well, so, if you ask seventeen or even twenty one year old drew, is this song a legit hit, his dumb ass probably would have said yes. And and truth be told, even back then I wasn't the biggest fan of this particular cover of this song. I like the other Olymp biscuit stuff I would like. I said I was angry back then. This was it really hit me at the right time. You know, I was an angry teenager. These guys are putting out angry music. Hey, it's a good it's a good mix. This was probably my least favorite song on that album because I like some of the angrier, edgier music instead. Now, you know, like now we have forty year old drew and I'm not that angry. You know, I feel like since I became a Dad I've mellowed out quite considerably, like I'm an good other things, like we're talking about before this episode like politicians and people in charge and in power that don't actually help people. But I feel like, especially of the past year or two, like just I know, I don't really worry much about stuff I can't control. You know, it's something I've been trying to work on and controlling my emotions and and I don't really get too angry anymore, you know, which means this music doesn't really have a place in my life. Also, I like music that has talent and talented singers and talented musicians. I don't mind WESNT Borland. I think he's a decent and talented guitarist. But you know Fred Durst, he's a Douche. You know that. That that's nothing. That kind of turned me off from them in the first place as well. Now I know I have my Gym Music, my gym music playlist right which is heavy music, and maybe I could listen to limp biscuit on there, but I don't really have them on that playlist. So rearranged. That's kind of a cool song, which was off significant other I don't like why it was written, but if you take it and apply her I'm meaning to it and it's not. It's not a bad tune, but this music, you know, specific to olymp biscuit, doesn't really have a place in my life right now. I also don't want to waste my time listening to them. Now, if you ask about other songs on the album, like stuck or sour stalemate, you know, Leach, like those songs are okay, I don't. I don't. I'm honesting not too sure. If I would call them legit hits. I would call them a legit hip before faith. But we're talking about faith. I mean I think this is a song gone wrong. I think overall, limp biscuits are band gone wrong. Fred durst is a human being gone wrong and yeah, Fuck Fred Durst, I got that's well, you know what, that was enough. So the cut. You're good. Yeah, I mean so we're both in unison here. We are calling this absolute trash, but there's still another party to be involved to weigh in on the final say. This is true, and those are the fans, and let's see what they have to say about this. All right, we have our verdicts here, Dave Yep, and the fans. Seventy seven point eight percent said faith by limp biscuit is a song gone wrong. Thank you. So we have we have that. We have the TRIFECTA. They got it...

...right. Yep, yeah, so pure and got a good amount of this. Yeah, yeah, well, this song is not awesome, but we got a good amount of feedback here. Irish Keith at Tis Me Self, you know, said Nope, nope, nope, nope, just nope. Ryan Boem, at Ryan Boem said Fred's singing on this song is an abomination. I do like the heavy course, though. That's the biscuit I signed up for. Mike and the apocalypse at Habachi Justice said they definitely have songs. I would argue our legit hits, but this isn't one of them. At trust science eighty seven said. I'm a limp fan, but can see why some don't like it. Victor Lee, at Victor Lee two thousand said one of the worst cover songs I've ever heard, and I'm not a limp biscuit hater. I like nookie and my way. Pipe twenty. At pipe seven and twenty said, faith by George Michael is a legit hit. Limb Biscuit was cooled decades ago, but that sound just doesn't hold up for me. I feel like that's like so far. That comments really a kind of hissing nail on the head. Erico at Eric Onterio said, so awful, it sucks hard. Back then, it's as if there was a massive musical disconnect when Limb Biscuit was popular. It blew my mind back then. And then finally snobby girl at snobby girl seventeen said so much. No, I always appreciate her short and very specific responses. Hey, so that's that's what we got, man. Yeah, I think it's good, not the song but the responses and the overall verdicts on faith, or this version of faith by limp biscuit. I think it's fair. Yeah, just I mean, you know, like obviously, like sometimes you have things that make comebacks, right, you know, you have, like we talked about the weekends and that Song Blinding Lights. Now, how that song is kind of that s I'm going to say it again, synth pop. I also get a nickel for every time I say that. Yep, you know. So it's kind of bringing that sounds back a little bit. You know, I kind of wonder when grunge might make a comeback, but I'm like, well, new metal ever make a comeback? And I don't. I mean it. I'll they will. I'm sure there's a band called fire from the Gods. They're I think they're from Texas, if I'm not mistaken, and they are, they're kind of like a rage against the machine meets podsh kind of a band. They're not bad. I kind of like them. They're very political. That's why I kind of think they're similar to like a rage against the machine. So I appreciate their lyrical content. I mean, other than that, like a lot of the metal bands, I feel like metal core is still kind of like the new, not new anymore, but that's kind of like the heavy sound that's out there. So I'm kind of curious if, like grunge will make a comeback or, you know, if like what's next, and I don't think it's going to be new metal, which hopefully that's the case, and yeah, that would be a good thing, but I mean everything, you know, people take inspiration from all sorts of music, all sorts of different areas. So I wouldn't be surprised to yeah, have bands out there. They may not exactly sound like a new metal band, but they in an article or something and they're going to be stating that those are...

...the bands that might have shaped them or get them into music. Yeah, whatever the case may be, but I would nothing really surprises me anymore after the lives we've had over the last whatever five years. So if new metal came back tomorrow, big, hot, heavy and it was the new it thing, I would be like, okay, yeah, that's that's it. Makes Sense, I guess, par for the course. Sorry how things have been going for the past year. Yeah, that's it, man. We just live in a crazy world where along for a while Ade. You know, we we get it. We get a pandemic, we have, you know, massive like power outages and freezing weather and Texas. You know, we get a crazy winter in general and new metal makes a comeback. It's only a matter of time, I feel. I think you should head to Vegas right now and put some money on it. No, okay, I'm good. I think I'll say no.
