Not only he drew one of the best comics on earth, Dave wrote this quality hilarious article too.

http://www.explosm.net/articles/35868/#evenmore

Quotes:

"Theres no finer hobby than spending £14 on a piece of plastic, only to find out that its actually a piece of hog **** (imagine my delight when I bought Metallica's St Anger, in that case)"

"So these two guys are immediately hateful simply because of their ghastly features, but they're nothing compared to the singer. His name is Wil Francis, and he's the human equivalent of getting your fingers slammed in a car door."

"If Robert Smith took a ****, then picked off some of his pubes, combed them and put them on it, it'd look like Wil. I bet mummy and daddy are proud."

"Not only have Aiden decided to completely change their image with a much bigger dose of gay (its like they made a point to prove that they could be even gayer), but they've also decided to throw child abduction into the scheme of things. I didn't know grown men leading small children astray was considered hip."

...

Read it yourself. 4 pages of worth reading funny rant.

What a fucking retard.

At least they don't just spend their entire lives writing a new AIDS joke every day.

Haha i agree with that aiden - afi comparison, christ i'd never heard that single before but it mayaswell be afi.

while i didn't mind that die romantic track (i mean it's nothing special but it's not quite as terrible as the guy describes it) .... one love however ... really is terrible.

Sorry man, but it ****ing pisses me off when people write 'criticism' like that. You can tastefully find faults in someones work, it's not necessary to be obscene and insulting, and to even mock the physical appearance of the band members. It's not on.

why does it piss you off? ... do you think it pisses them off?

i mean to be fair those two guys are pretty ugly, it's nothing they can help but im also sure they're aware of that fact and most probably don't care about it.

that guy doesn't like their music, i don't but enough people do for them to keep making albums so really .... why get so upset over it?

So you think it's justified for him to make fun of them for being ugly... because they are ugly?

And that aside, I think the whole thing is hilariously ironic. Die romantic isn't a bad song- it's catchy, it's been a big success, and Aiden seem like genuinely nice guys.

And they get attacked by the guy whos main achievement is doing this every day.

No it's worst than he describes it. If this is the **** people listen to today, I can't wait to see the crap they'll be selling in 10 years.

I don't like Aiden but this guy has a point. (I mean rabidguitarist)

Cyanide and Happiness really aren't very good anymore and this guy is bashing Aiden?
It's not even that funny.

so rabid you just decided to ignore what i actually said and just read what you want into it.

no where did i say what he was saying was right, my point was ... they certainly wont care, and you stamping your feet, crossing your arms and saying

"boohoo the nasty man is making fun of poor old aiden and all he does is draw cartoons!"

won't stop him from calling them ugly.

also in my previous post i stated that die romantic isnt a bad song, the other two i pretty much agree with him on though, even if i would have phrased my opinion differently than just saying ... it's gay a lot.

It's called satire. It's sort of the idea of their website...

I'm sorry, but this is an insult to bands like AFI, who work hard to make music, just to get ripped off by a bunch of untalented hacks who just want to jump on the "hardcore" bandwagon in an attempt to make lots of money very quickly, then fade away and use that money to fund their future alcohol abuse.

Oh, and whoever is trying to defend these hacks, just stop. You know why these guys are making (unoriginal, terrible) music as well as I do.

i actually find that picture utterly hilarious...

First of all, there is nothing wrong with the new music. Tell me how a change of musical style is construed as "gay". The old stuff was incredible - I love every song they have put out thus far, and look forward to hearing the new stuff. Aiden is without question my favorite band, and always will be.

Nothing wrong with making fun of bands, but to say that they are AFI rip-offs... I've always found that a bit funny, because no matter how much I listen to the two bands, I can never really see how anybody could say that.
