Wimps and posers, leave MySpace!!
Did anyone have any doubts that ManOwar are the TRUE kings of metal? Well, they in fact SO metal, they deny requests for friends in MySpace. After all, "they don't attract wimps, 'cuz they are too loud!". Here's an email I got from a friend of mine. I wouldn't go as far as calling her a "poser", but I guess she's not metal enough for the KINGS of metal.
"Even if you're not a member of MySpace, you know how it is, right? No bands really deny your friend requests. Most are hungry for numbers and any opportunity to promote is a good opportunity. Or so I thought.
I know I'm not embedded in the scene. I know I don't look the part. But I have a base understanding, a past, and an appreciation for metal that most currently outside the scene don't.
So here's where I'm left scratching my head and at the same time loving ManOwar even more now! Those assholes are so freakin' metal that they went through swarms of friend requests that they got on MySpace and carefully selected just who is metal enough to consider their friendship. No posers allowed!
I can see it now, Joey Demaio and Scott Columbus tooling around on MySpace and gleefully answering their friend requests. Upon seeing a short chubby red-head with glasses and a flipped up hairdo they thought, "Who the fuck is this chick? She doesn't look metal. Let's click on her profile and see what she's into. ... Weezer, Jerry Lee Lewis, her hair really isn't that long and she isn't dressed all slutty like we like 'em. This chick ISN'T metal. She has no place in the Kingdom of Steel."
In some ways you gotta love that. I'd rather be denied their friendship than know they randomly accepted applicants. I guess if I want to talk the talk, I've got to walk the walk.
PS: The SkullKrusher's request WAS accedpted like 3 years ago!
