Ninety Seconds of Rob Zombie Yelling “YEAH!”
What can I say about Rob Zombie’s new single, “Dead City Radio and The New Gods of Supertown,” that hasn’t been said about literally any other Rob Zombie song ever? Here’s what passes for artistic evolution in Rob Zombie’s world: now his endless array of same-sounding industrial songs have a slight 70s influence. And by “slight 70s influences,” I mean John 5’s guitar leans a little towards the hillbilly side, and every now and then the synths make organ noises for a few seconds. Otherwise, it’s just the same thing over and over and over again. It’s a bad sign when the only thing I can think about when listening to Zombie’s new single is whether or not the title of his new album, Venomous Rat Regeneration Vendor, is a reference to the Haverhill Fever, which is the second most disgusting thing to originate in Zombie’s hometown of Haverhill, Massachusetts.
The song isn’t embeddable, but you can listen here if you want. The album comes out April 26. Instead of listening to it, though, I highly recommend you check out the below video, which features ninety seconds of Zombie yelling “YEAH!” throughout his career. Rob, if you’re reading this, I just want you to know, I don’t care what people say about you, you’re a true wordsmith.
I dedicate this post to my dear friend Luis. Maybe he never be short of health, happiness, and “YEAH!”s.
