#142: Filter’s Richard Patrick
Filter’s Richard Patrick takes over the podcast this week — and when we say “takes over the podcast,” we mean it! Filter’s new record, Crazy Eyes, is out… but we talk about the new music for maybe two seconds before the conversation shifts to the nature of art, Patrick’s belief that music and art should be subversive, how the radio hit “Take a Picture” exemplifies this belief, and the U.S. presidential election (spoiler: Richard does not like Mr. Drumpf very much).
We also discuss Metal GF’s recent MetalSucks editorial, “Is Metal Still Counterculture? Is Anything?”, and how it seems that metal has been not just accepted by, but adopted into, the mainstream (see: Justin Bieber, Lady Gaga, Paris Jackson, etc.)
Filter – “Nothing In My Hands”
Primitive Weapons – “Ashes or Paradise”
