Hatebreed Frontman Bashes Malicious Peer to Peer Posters
Band Photo: Hatebreed (?)
Like most artists, Hatebreed frontman and former Headbangers Ball host, Jamey Jasta, isn’t too stoked about illegal downloading. But Jasta’s latest gripe with peer to peer networks has nothing to do with lost income or prematurely released songs, but with something even more potentially damaging — disinformation.
On a December 28 post on the band’s MySpace, Jasta attacked “some lame a–hole” who posted the 1998 song "Smash Your Enemies" as "Kill the Niggers" on various file sharing services. It’s not the first time the band has dealt with malicious downloaders. In 2004, a Hatebreed hater posted the 1998 song “Kill an Addict” on Kazaa under the same ugly title.
"This is why illegal music downloading is f—ed up," Jasta wrote."Any true Hatebreed fans know the real deal and know we would never have a song called that, but there are a lot of young kids that don’t buy music legally that went online to steal our music and saw this f—ed up song title and were offended and wrote us messages and hate mail. This is so lame. Hatebreed is a band with positive messages of respect for all… It offends us that people would even think for one second that we would have any racist, homophobic or sexist type agenda."
