    Cancelling Metallica? GTFOH seriously, GTFOH!

    Get the f--- out of my country. Seriously, this should be a litmus test, anyone for "cancelling" a band should be kicked out of the country. For one thing punk and metal by their very nature are supposed to be shocking in sound, lyrics, and general attitude.

    What kind of rebellion is this crap? If I had any criticism of my parents' music it was that it wasn't as energetic as I preferred. Now a days kids are rebelling by saying that 80s and 90s punk and metal bands do not (or did not) behave properly. $#@!. Tipper Gore was less annoying.

    One of the "evidence" against Metallica is that James Hetfield was hanging out with Slayer's Kerry King while King wore a shirt with a Confederate flag. But no one is cancelling Slayer, because Slayer doesn't GAF.

    In fairness to the young generation, my kids and their friends think that this cancel culture has gone insane.

    Some ‘Stranger Things’ Fans Are Now Trying to Cancel Metallica, T

    Some Stranger Things viewers have turned against Metallica in a seeming attempt to "cancel" the veteran metal band after learning more about their past. Metallica got a boost in popularity last month when one of their songs appeared on Stranger Things 4.

    Illustrating the latest clash of heavy metal and cancel culture, the Metallica backlash was kicked up last week (Aug. 6) with a video made by TikTok user Serena Trueblood. The influencer hosts a fan series on the social media platform called "Is Your Fav Problematic" that covers many different musical artists.


    Watch her latest down toward the bottom of this post.

    In light of Trueblood's Metallica installment, some listeners responded with regret for their recent Metallica purchases. They appeared to be some of the same new fans spurred by Stranger Things' use of Metallica's "Master of Puppets" in a crucial scene. On TikTok as well as Twitter, others defended the band. In July, Metallica welcomed their new listeners.

    But what is cancel culture? AP News deems the term a "buzzword that creates more confusion than clarity" before describing it as "a mechanism where a chorus of voices, amplified on social media, tries to silence a point of view that they find offensive by trying to damage or destroy the reputation of the person who has given offense." Dictionary.com calls it the "practice of withdrawing support for (canceling) public figures and companies after they have done or said something considered objectionable or offensive."

    It's all about taking action and not being lazy. So you do the work, whether it's fitness or whatever. It's about getting up, motivating yourself and just doing it.

    And people wonder why the ChiComs heavily censor their own creation in their country.

    That said, I read the OP three times and can't, for the life of me, deduce what has these $#@!s in a twist now.

    Can someone tell me what Metal-Likka did to the woke mob to have them sucking their thumbs and pissing themselves, again?

    ETA - I was reading the quote over and over.

    One of the "evidence" against Metallica is that James Hetfield was hanging out with Slayer's Kerry King while King wore a shirt with a Confederate flag. But no one is cancelling Slayer, because Slayer doesn't GAF.
    Wait...wat?

    That's the gripe?

    That?

    Yeah, seriously...$#@! you and get out of my country.

    Left wing $#@! Bruce Springsteen sings about "Burt Reynolds in his black Trans Am, all gonna meet down at the Cadillac Ranch".



    Go cancel him.
