don't make me try to listen
to that ska-core crap
just bust out some metallica
or pop in spinal tap
you say that metal's stupid
wrong i think you need a reason
that's why i wrote this song
you say i don't care cause Satan is my best friend
oh i don't know but its alright
i want you to know i don't know what you said
cause something you should know my friend
is its much too loud for me to hear
i bash my head repeatedly
hard into the wall
and fast i will will i repeat brain damage
will i fall you can't expect that?
you don't think that's alright?
well i don't care cause
i'll listen to metal all night!

    General Commenthahaha...i'm guessing this is supposed to be a sarcastic song that pokes fun at metalheads? it's so funny. i love ska, and i love metal. this song is hilarious, though.

    General CommentIgnorant song about outdated sterotypes associated with Metal. I could go on and on about the stereotypes associated with punk.

    Ironic that this band did a (horrible) cover of Megadeth's " Holy Wars"

    General Commentavs2006 is right :) there is another song in the 2 minutes left, which is actually metal song.. I think they didn't wanted anyone to know they created metal song, so they wrote the first part, in which they made fun of metal :)

    General CommentThis song is not ignorant nor is it really sarcasm. THe true meaning behind it is about ignorant people on the whole. THey use the example of a metal head who doesn't listen to anything else but metal. I agree totally with this message they are trying to send to the listeners. I hate ignorant people myself. For example: I am very much into Christianity yet i don't try to put other religions down nor do i try to push my religion onto others. I think it's really ignorant and mean to hate others for their beliefs. SO that's just one example of this.

    RX Bandits do however love metal music though so don't take this example in their sog the wrong way. They are the complete opposite to the character they are playing in the song. They are extremely open to music. In some of there songs you can even find a mix of Punk, Ska, Jazz and Metal all fuzed into one song. There aren't many bands that are as versatile as that. Trust me.
