Karencore: Finally, Angry Middle-Aged White Women Have a Metal Genre of Their Own
Unless you’ve been living under a MAGA hat, you’re likely aware that at some point in the not-too-distant past, the name “Karen” became pejorative. As defined by the always-helpful Urban Dictionary, “Karen” is a “Middle aged woman, typically blonde, [who] makes solutions to others’ problems an inconvenience to her although she isn’t even remotely affected.” So, for example, in every viral video you’ve seen during the Trump administration in which a white lady calls the cops on black people for no good reason, that white lady is a “Karen.” Get it? Got it. Good.
Which brings us to this video, from YouTuber Andre Antunes. Mr. Antunes has now made a pair of videos in which he takes the “vocals” of a “Karen” complaining about how black families are gonna make her kids transgender or whatever irrational fear these idiots have and set it to metal music. Some are calling it “Karen Metal,” although “Karencore” (or even “Karenkore”) seems like a better name to me.
In any case, you can check out the videos below. The first is centered around Paula White, a pro-Trump American preacher; I don’t know who the lady in the second video is, but it also features an appearance by the much beloved ‘BBQ, Beer, Freedom’ dude who was turned into a hardcore song a couple of weeks back.
Enjoy. Or, y’know. Call the cops. Whatever makes you happy, Karen.
