THE BEST THING ROB ZOMBIE HAS DIRECTED IN YEARS

310

Not that the video for “Sick Bubblegum,” the new Rob Zombie song, is startlingly original or great or anything. Y’know, Sherri Moon Zombie is in it. So that’s a real plot twist.

But I actually kinda like the song. It’s a Rob Zombie song. Write a catchy riff that doesn’t sound that different from your other catchy riffs, stick in an anthemic chorus, and repeat for four to five minutes. It’s not rocket science. But I’ll take this over most of the young pop metal bands making waves right now. And if doing this affords John 5 the opportunity to make another solo album, well, all the better.

“Sick Bubblegum” will be on the very poorly titled Hellbilly Deluxe 2, which is out February 2 on Roadrunner’s Redneck Division Loud & Proud imprint.
