Metal Once Again Being Blamed

Arizona Shooter
Picture by Arizona PD

Over the weekend, you probably heard about the shooting that went down in Arizona. If you didn’t, you must’ve slept through the weekend…or just awoke from that heroine-induced coma.

Anyways, on Saturday, January 8 in Tucson, there was an assassination attempt made on Democratic U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords; she remains in critical condition after being shot in the head. The shooting happened at a grocery store, and six people were killed, including a 9-year-old girl. A dozen others were injured.

The media has started latching on to the notion that the motherfucker smirking there in the photo killed because he likes metal. Heavy metal music is once again being blamed for the actions of some sick fuck who is probably smirking because he is getting so much hot guy-on-guy action in jail. Of course metal is catching some of the blame. Why would we blame Sarah Palin or those tea party nuts? According to Metal Insider, conservative radio personality Rush Limbaugh recently spoke on the matter and offered this defense and explanation.

Limbaugh argues that Jared Lee Loughner was a fan of heavy metal, and tried to make a correlation between that and the fact that dude killed a bunch of people. “The guy listened to heavy metal, and some of that anarchist stuff. We’re dealing with an insane individual,” Limbaugh claimed. The media found out that Loughner is into hard rock and metal through his MySpace page, where he posted a comment about attending a concert of Fear Before (formerly known as Fear Before The March Of Flames).

He also listed that Drowning Pool song “Bodies” as one of his favorites on YouTube, which prompted Drowning Pool to jump on the press opp: “We were devastated this weekend to learn of the tragic events that occurred in Arizona and that our music has been misinterpreted, again.”

First off, Fear Before and Drowning Pool are not even metal. They’re hard rock. So there goes that argument. The truth of the matter is, Loughner’s fucking nuts. Whether he listened to pseudo metal or Britney fucking Spears, he still would have done what he did…because he’s nuttier than a fruitcake. That’s his mugshot and he is almost smiling. Smirking. That’s what lunatics do!

I blame Rush Limbaugh for the widespread appeal and use of OxyContin amongst middle-aged conservative white folks. Notice that the hillbilly heroine craze didn’t really take off until Rush outed himself as a junkie. Fuck you, Rush Limbaugh. And that fucking broad you married who only fucks you for your money.
