UNFORTUNATELY, THE “SCREAMO-CRUNK EXPLOSION” HASN’T ACTUALLY KILLED ANY SCREAMO-CRUNKERS
The May issue of Revolver has an article on Hollywood Undead and “the screamo-crunk explosion,” and while I’m aware that there are people I completely respect who love this shit, this particular sub-genre pretty much makes me want the ending of Dr. Strangelove to come true.
The article included some bands we’ve already declared our hatred for here at MS – the aforementioned Hollywood Undead, Brokencyde, and I Set My Friends on Fire – but also has the unfortunate distinction of having introduced me to Breathe Carolina and 3OH!3.
Honestly, I can’t see how these bands are considered metal, or even hard rock. But, then, I can’t see how they would be considered anything other than “awful.”
Breathe Carolina, “Diamonds”
3OH!3, “Don’t Trust Me”
