I've always had a childish fondness for the over-the-top lyrics of The Misfits, but I've yet to chop off any little girls' heads and put them on my wall. Do they not listen to The Misfits outside of the US? I suspect they do.
So, by extrapolation, I assume that you are of the opinion that the Sikh Temple shooter's involvement with racist organizations and music had nothing to do with his shooting?
I'm not really following your logic, Igor. I guess I don't see the connection between songs about how I'm sick of eating brains and would really like to eat some guts and songs about how I really, really hate people who aren't white. On the one hand you have a KISS-esque band, except they're zombies and stuff, and on the other hand you have people expressing very real and violent emotions.
I don't know, maybe Glen Danzig really is a zombie, or a vampire. But mostly I just think it's humorous, in the same way I find B-horror films humorous. Plus, I like the power chords.
Maybe my Smiths listening offset my Misfits listening and I became a mass-murdering, brain-eating zombie who really preferred carrots and Rickenbackers and settled somewhere in the middle with beef tenderloins and an SG.
At any rate, 10 years ago you would have been wise to avoid my Counterstrike character, [peanuts]pigpen, but for all the teenagers I blew away with my M4 Carbine, I never actually killed someone with an M4 Carbine. It was a wonderful weapon: accurate sight, easy on the recoil and reasonably short barrel for easy aiming, but it wasn't an actual weapon. It was a collection of pixels that combined nicely with a flashbang and a Desert Eagle.
