METAL AS FUCK

What can I say about this that can't be said in the sound your jaw will make as it drops to the floor?



But 'Rocky Road To Doom' is a pretty cool band name. I would imagine if they didn't get booed off stage that night, they would have sounded a lot like this.

You know what kind of music that is? It's heavy metal music.

This is what happened when Kids Incorporated ingested large amounts of mercury...

There's enough horrible Kids Incorp to have its own EIT movie...

Anon: correction, it's heavy metal madness.

Yeaaaauuugh.

Iggy said...

More like second-wave symphonic Early Norwegian blackened death metal crust punk.

Neverwhere said...

Hahahaha brilliant!

As soon as the Kids Inc kids appeared on screen this entire episode came flooding back into my brain XD

My jaw literally dropped.

I like the way they juxtaposed the lyrical subject matter with the cold, discordant Lene Lovich/Euro Synth style arrangement. Very fucking clever.

John said...

Faint tones of The Dickies ring in my ear.

Next stop, Heavy Metal Parking Lot.

Why do I think this is what I imagine if Kraftwerk gets into metal.

Now I don't want to get some in Martika's Kitchen.

If not for the sound and that one guy's hair I would have spent the entire video wondering why a bunch of kids got together to form a rockabilly group.

This is what you get when you mix Rick James and B-52s

If Klaus Nomi and Cyndi Lauper had a bunch of kids, and those kids never actually hear metal, only read about it...

Monkey Lee said...

Not in 100 years could I come up with such bizarre and annoying sound.

This is truly a work of art.

This is the perfect choice for SWAT teams to use to diffuse a hostage situation.

The Liquid or the parts from the Car Company? I'm dead serious, this video could result from either one.

Is this what people think metal sounds like? I know some metal fans who would kill themselves if they heard this.

It sounds like Lene Lovich with an inner ear infection. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1nu2QX3GU-U

Were those kids on the left boys or girls?

KazOshay said...

they all died of AIDS later that night.

mcsandwich said...

This is like unmetal.

Ravenhallow said...

It's Ziggy Stardust's recreation of the Village People, only made out of children and insanity.

Lene Lovich even on her worst ain't that terrible. But it does sound like a Glee-esque cast of tone deaf kids ripping off the eccentricities of Lovich and others like Nina Hagen or Kate Bush.

Knife in the Toaster said...

Wow, now I know where Marilyn Manson got his chops.

that was so terrible it was actually awesome

Voracious_Boot said...

That girl waaay on the right in the lime green chiffon skirt doesn't seem cut out for metal. With that X she just dropped I'd say she's ready for the techno scene.

Richard Whittall said...

Why are they booing?

They were dead on in the intro. It was just like a nightmare.

Martika!

WOW! You have to be a special kind of terrible to get booed off of the stage on Kids Incorporated. Speaking of special, is there any chance we can get some "Life Goes On" clips on EIT any time soon??????? PRETTY PLEASE!!!!!!

This song actually rules

Are they saying "boo" or are they saying "boo-urns?"

Ron Medulla said...

Yeah, I'm definitely a fan of Fergie's earlier work.

Fat 'n Boring said...

Hot damn, I've found my new ring tone!

airplane said...

This song is now on my iPod. It is the greatest metal song ever.

Jr Deputy Accountant said...

I'm pretty sure this is the greatest thing I have ever seen.

Nate said...

i guess "post-pop industrial synth madness" just didnt have the same ring to it.

Little background: this is from an episode of "Kids Inc." where the titular band decides to record an experimental new sound under a different name. As you can see, it didn't go over well. Later on in the same episode, they go back to Bowlderized covers of popular songs.

Even so, I thought the song was kinda amazing as a kid because (a) it didn't sound anything like what kids' music is "supposed" to sound like and (b) I couldn't understand the words and therefore was blissfully unaware that this was somebody's idea of what 80's heavy metal sounded like. Also, I was, like, seven.

Listening to it for the first time as an adult, it's absolutely the best song Fergie as ever sung or will ever sing.

Michael said...

You know...this just might be my new favorite song.

I kinda wanna have sex with the braid kid...

Greg said...

WHAT are the lyrics for that second verse?

"Cosmic... Interstellar... Freaky... Jeffrey Dahmer"

What??!

Chris said...

This is what bible thumpers here when they think of heavy metal... and never heard of Ozzy.
