OT- New Band suggestion for RAWK music

Submitted by wolverine1987 on September 29th, 2009 at 1:41 PM

Since we're unfortunately now committed to RAWK in the Big House, (other than Seven Nation Army and student reaction, I hate it) I humbly suggest a metal band that rocks the hardest of all that rocks hard.

http://www.steelpantherrocks.com/

This band is both a parody and tribute to 80's hair metal and this may be one of the funniest things I've ever heard IMO. WARNING: the lyrics are offensive, sexist, and awful. And hilarious. So move on if you have any question.

P.S. Sorry about a non-clickable link. I'm on a Mac and when I copy/paste links here, sometimes they work and sometimes not. I'm sure I'm doing something wrong.

That is BrokeNCYDE. Quite possibly the worst musical(?) group I've ever come across. Some excerpts from Wikipedia:

Despite early commerical success, favorable critical reviews have been elusive. Metal Edge magazine has called Brokencyde "fucking horrendous".[13] "Thrash Magazine" has called them "a mockery to the world of music".[14] British commentator Warren Ellis calls Brokencyde's "Freaxxx" music video "a near-perfect snapshot of everything that’s shit about this point in the culture".[15]

The New Musical Express stated in a review of I'm Not a Fan, But the Kids Like It!, that "even if I caught Prince Harry and Gary Glitter adorned in Nazi regalia defecating through my grandmother’s letterbox I would still consider making them listen to this album too severe a punishment."[16]

[Edit: And no, we're not old. You and I just have a taste in music that doesn't involve ear rape.]

thinks the Black Eyed Peas "Tonight's Gonna Be a Good Night" needs to be added to the playlist. Somehow, I don't think Bill Martin will add any of our selections to the list. He's a "Sweet Caroline" kind of dude.

five finger death punch (mostly for the name)
crooked X - Nightmare
Motley Crue - Dr. Feelgood (the intro)
RHCP.

Seriously, it's just music. They need to not worry so much about lyrics or messages. Be innovative, be funny, be timely and be subordinate to the MMB and the fans if they're doing something on their own. How hard is it to look left and see what the students are doing before hitting the "play" button.

I'm surprised by the musical knowledge on this site (in a good way). I'd never met another person who knew of The Upper Crust or Steel Panther.

Other Awesome Rock Bands in This Genre:

Bang Camaro
Hot Leg
Ten Benson
The Wildhearts
Electric Six
Ten Benson

That being said, none of these bands would work for RAWK music, not popular enough to energize the masses.

While you will never hear me utter or read typed words from my hands denigrating the pure awesomeness of Steel Panther the majority of the songs are quite explicit in language and subject matter and therefore inappropriate for football game usage. And while their humor is endearing to their loyal fans and those with a love of 80s metal, I can't see a stadium full of 110,000 "getting it." Most of M's fans would not understand the context (i.e. parody!) and just think it was crappy 80s metal they'd never heard before. Steel Panther is like Mgoblog in a way, loved by those who "get it" but not for mass consumption.

at the lack of mgobloggers chiming in that Steel Panther is pure awesomeness. How can a song with the line "my heart belongs to you but my dong is community property" and "if you were suddenly a guy I'd be suddenly gay" not be celebrated by all? Though perhaps I've completely overestimated my own sense of humor, I'm not sure.

Electric Six would be really good and for the what seems like the one-thousandth time, ANDREW W.K. NEEDS TO BE PLAYED! Thank you almostkorean and shalom Lansky for also supporting this.

Sure the players might like a little "Lose Yourself" or something, but they have a lot more things to focus on than what the next piped in jam is going to be.
The point of the music is to increase the experience of the fans. By doing this they(UM)feel it will increase the overall in game atmosphere and create a better more rabid fan base and home field advantage like Wisco, PSU and others have tried to achieve.
