Ok so my grandmother called me last night to consult me on what i was getting for xmas and the conversation goes as follows,

gma: What is this Slayer:world painted blood you want?

Me: It's a metal album, that I would like to have

gma:Well i dont want you lisetning to the devil's music, all the kids that listen to that killing, go and shoot everyone in their schools and it convinces people to kill other people and thats whats wrong with it.

Me: Metal doesn't inspire any of that its just heavier music, that is a little violent and besides, Tom Araya is a devout catholic

gma: Well i dont want you listening to it, Why don't you listen to the Jonas Brothers, that's what you should listen to

Me: First off, the metal community is some very nice people and it's a great genre, and The Jonas Brothers are a disgrace to music, and they have ruined music as it is like rap, and all the thugs in the cities listen to rap not metal, what does that tell you?

gma: That you shouldn't listen to either

Me:I dont listen to rap b/c its horrible, and I just don't understand whats wrong with metal alot of songs have truth and historical accuracy

gma: I dont care, and you better not be playing that stuff with your guitar, b/c nobody will listen to it and you will get no where try to be like the Jonas Brothers


Me: I do w/some of my songs and metal has a very large fanbase and it is very big right now, and nobody likes the jonas brothers except preepy people, they are a disgrace

gma:Stop lying, People dont want to listen to all that depressing music they want happy music

Me: I do, and so do alot of other people...


This continued for a while but thats what i can recall,

anywho has anyone ever expperienced conversations with elders like this?....
Rofl?

play her some power metal.

Ask her, "does this sound depressing to you? Will it make someone go Columbine?"

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

Way to go!! You're a soldier of metal, and you and only you shall prove that it is the one true music that will unite us all as we pump our fists in rhythm!

This story is complete bullshit.

ITT: TS is brutal and cool.

On a side note, Janis Joplin taught my grandmother how to play "Summertime" on the piano. She also gave me a wristband that she got from a Sabbath concert back in 70'.

Something tells me she wouldn't approve of that, either.

I thought i saw jesus doing the same thing. He wasnt disguised as a hobo though, he just looked like jesus. He asked me for about tree fiddy. Then it hit me. It wasnt no jesus, it was that god dam loch ness monster.

...don't worry, she will die soon and she will no longer 'bother' you. She's from a generation where this music was non existent, and where music was lighter and more upbeat. Every generation does this.

I'd probly just punch my grandmother in the face through the phone.
meh.

World Painted Blood is a terrible album. No lies. Your Grandma is wise for refusing to buy you that album.
And there are rap albums miles better than albums slayer have ever produced.
So instead of using this site seeking some kind of solidarity for your moan about how great, misunderstood and repressed metal is, and how shit rap is. Grow up.
Get out. Go join the ranks of 13 year old pseudo metalheads

^Well I meant something like Dragonforce.

I had similar conversation the other day, with me playing the part of your grandmother:

(at a bowling alley)
Me: Man, they really need to play better music here.
Guy: Yeah, man they need something like Slayer!
Me: Yeah, exactly, except that's a terrible band.

END CONVERSATION

1. Not all rap is horrible.
2. Your conversation with your grandmother seemed too textbook to be real.
The UG Awards exist only to instill me with existential doubt.


For me, the 60's ended that day in 1978...

Willies. Fuck the lick and fuck you too.

The conversation's hilarious because it's obviously something that TS just made up to try and seem clever and br00talz.

You kind of sound like a little brat.

Grandmas are awesome. They give you money on your birthday, and invite you over for good homemade food.

To be more accurate, the wristband is from the California Jam in 74'.

I would post a picture, but I don't get my new camera until tomorrow for Christmas. Its made from leather and has a large emerald gemstone in the center. Its my good luck charm.

Yeah, Im pretty sure this is it.

awesome if that story YOU said is true (I dont think it is but it easily could be )

rap didn't ruin music. Old music is still there and rap can be good too sometimes. And you can't just kill off a type of music, turn off the radio and do some searching for more underground bands

EDIT: my grandma listens to the pussycat dolls, jonas brothers, ricky martin, etc.
Bands I must see in concert
Silvertide
The Black Crowes
Jackyl
Black Stone Cherry
AC/DC
StoneRider
Freedomhawk
The Darkness and/or the sideprojects of the band members
Buckcherry
The Answer

Theres more. But those are the main ones

You should probably listen to your gran... Or text her a picture of your penis. Either one is fine really
