HEADBANGER’S BALL KINDLY DISAGREES WITH VINCE NEILSTEIN’S CHOICE FOR “BEST VIDEO OF 2007”
Instead, viewers of the show selected Mushroomhead’s clip for “1200,” the song that promises to be four times better than the movie 300. The video was directed by House. That’s right: the cranky, quirky doctor with the cane directed a Mushroomhead video!
Personally, I think the choice sucks – even if you were gonna choose a Mushroomhead video from earlier this year, I’d think you’d at least go with a super-catchy guilty pleasure song like “Simple Survival” – but apparently more than 120,000 people voted in the show’s “Video of the Year” poll, so, uh, give the people what they want, I guess.
In a press release, Mushroomhead stated, “Fuck Slipknot. We are very proud to have won this award. Fuck Slipknot. We’d like to thank all the fans who voted for us, and not for Slipknot. We’d also like to thank House for taking time out of his very busy schedule curing weird diseases to do our video. Also, fuck Slipknot.”
