IF LIKING NAPALM DEATH MAKES ME A THIN SKINNED PUSSY, THEN A THIN SKINNED PUSSY AM I

The last time I wrote about Napalm Death’s forthcoming album, Time Waits for No Slave, someone known only as “Jimmy” left the following comment: “Fuck you thin skinned pussies who like this shit.” I found the comment simply fascinating and thought about it for several days after it was posted, and not just because Jimmy had the good sense to properly spell the plural of “pussy” (As opposed to the Disturbed fans who come around here and insist on spelling it “pussys.”). No, my real interest in Jimmy’s declaration is this: why does liking Napalm Death make one thin skinned? Are Napalm fans especially prone to being overly sensitive? Or did Jimmy not mean “thin skinned” in the metaphorical sense with which we usually use it in modern English speaking society – e.g., that people who like Napalm Death quite literally have a thinner layer of skin than most people? And if that’s how Jimmy meant it, what scientific study was he basing this assertion on? These are truly questions for the ages.

ANYWAY, Napalm Death performed two new songs, “Diktat” and “On the Brink of Extinction,” at the UK’s Damnation Festival this past weekend, and, this being 2008 n’ all, a fan was able to a capture the performance on video. Of course the audio quality isn’t so hot, but after an initial listen, I think these songs sound pretty sweet. My fellow thin skinned pussies, I look forward to reading your thoughts in our comments section below.
