Yeah, right, Jovan. You're wack as fxck. The Mentors rule.

And by the way, GWAR is REALLY a band of space aliens hellbent on the destruction of Earth. Maybe you should be worrying about THEM. Someone should stop them!

I wonder if when watching Ancient Aliens closely, you'd be able to spot Gwar.

Hey Jovan, I'm fairly certain using the internet to communicate threats (especially murder) can land you in some pretty hot water. Be nice to your cell mate and thank him when he RAPES you in the ass.

Wow,i wish the Mentors would bring that show East. And Meth Leppard? Thats funny. I remember i saw a band 13-14 years ago called REO Speed Dealer. Think they got a cease and desist,had to drop the REO part of thier name.

Whats odd is when i saw REO Speed Dealer in like 98,they had just been served with the cease order,so they couldnt sell friggin shirts or thier cd at the show. They ended up being called Speed Dealer,dopped off the face of the planet just like JCCC.

I think you're confusing shock rock and entertainment with something else. The Mentors have plenty of groupies. You don't rape the willing.
