Has anyone here seen the new Simpsons episode "Girls Just Wanna Have Sums"? There's one point in that episode where after Otto lets the girls out of the bus, he turns on the radio and it's some rock song that's awesome. Then he lets the boys out of a cage at the back of the bus. Does anyone know the name of that song?

I like SYL, BLS and Norma Jean, the rest of the lineup walks the line of decent (early Lacuna Coil, Soad) or crosses over into utter (Disturbed, A Life Once Lost, Atreyu) horse sh**....

Of course poor geriatric Ozzy is the f***ing man, but he's on life support at this point....10 dates....Sucks. I'm gonna miss Ozz when he retires.


to post 10
Missed that one. Might be something the show itself concocted but ussually the show isn't affraid to use established music....I dunno.

Ha at least Bad Acid Trip has to be better than Wicked Wisdom. I mean at least half of the sh** they play won't be covers. What am I getting at here this is some bullsh**! Ozzfest is a f***ing bad joke nowadays. The bands on this bill I actually want to see were on SOTU last year anyhow. Unholy Alliance here I come.
