siN's Metal News had posted this interesting bit:

The 'Wall of Death', made ever so popular by bands like LAMB OF GOD, much like the 'devil horn' gesture developed by DIO that even rappers do nowadays, has hit a new all-time low. For those of you interested in seeing YELLOWCARD's version of the 'Wall of Death', click here (right click / save as).

The devil horn, being used by rappers? Thats f***in stupid. Its rap you idiots. Not metal. I've never even heard of Yellowcard. And by the words of JG, and the fact that I haven't seen them on this site, I'm guessing they're punk, or pop punk. or whatever. And why the f*** are they using the Wall of Death? It isn't meant for p***ies like them. Stuff like the Wall of Death is made "lame" by "artists" like these bands. I still see devil horns at every metal show I go to. Ive never seen a wall of death live, but ive seen multiple videos. I dont see it being lame in the metal circle. Just in the mainstream, thats what people view it as.

their what is known as MTV punk. "bands" like good charlotte, yellowcard,
sum 41, and unfortunetly Bowling for soup.

but MTV punk is pretty much pop-punk and really gives good punk bands
a bad name, especially when it comes time to go on the warped tour.

bowling for soup were good, and then they got signed.

you've never been part of that side have you?
they were having fun with their music and then jive records
came along and signed them. i know, i've been with the band
for about 5 years.

and the bands you mentioned were all mtv punk, you didn't
bother to mention some good punk bands like NOFX, Bad
Religion, and Pennywise because they aren't that popular
so you obviously only like to complain about some namby
pamby little s**theads that think they are punk so they dress
like gangstas and write crappy songs about their high school
and how mom killed the car.

Good point 13 and dont forget the crossover bands like DRI and Suicidal Tendencies,
Plus all the real punk like the Exploited,GBH, Discharge, Ramones, Chaos UK and so on
Punk is the brother of metal in my eyes. I go to both punk and metal shows my buddy runs
a killer punk rock night on saturdays at the Melody Inn here in Indy and its a fukkin blast!!!

yeah, sounds like fun. you said something about a Melvins show.
there's a Melvins tribute album coming out on May 10th 2005.
It's called "We Reach: The Music Of The Melvins" and it features
Meshuggah, The Dillinger Escape Plan, Strapping Young Lad,
and a couple other bands.

Yellowcard / Wall of Death two things that should be together, Resulting in a insult to the Real Bands that do it. Bands like YellowCrad r so lite and crappy they look like fa**ots sing like them to. With laughable songs like life of a salesman, uphill both ways, and we all suck c***. I didnt see the version but a bet its really pathetic. The pace of the moving wall would have to be walking speed with some slaps and giggles. so Fu*k them, Fu*k their type of music, and Fu*k all those pus*y bands.
