Machine Head frontman/guitarist Robb Flynn examines the actual worth of social media in his latest journal entry. Amid a realistic appraisal of the bands accrued ‘likes’ and why he walked away from Twitter, Flynn also fired some shots back at Children Of Bodom,—presumably for this statement Alexi Laiho made in regards to the two bands cancelled fall tour.
Addressing the subsequent wave of Childen Of Bodom fans that began attacking Machine Head on social media, Flynn stated:
“There also exists a large group of “I’m-not-really-sure-if-they-are-fans-or-not,” and last and certainly least, there’s the people whose sole purpose is to troll your page. Like, I don’t know… let’s say the Children Of Bodom “Hate Crew” that has been out in full force in light of the US tour being re-scheduled. It’s typical shit talking, albeit a ton of it to the actual Machine Head fans saying ‘how much better Bodom are than Machine Head’ and how ‘Bodom should’ve been headlining over Machine Head’, and “fuck Machine Head”.
However, most people usually need the motivation to act like fools and Alexi’s little bitch-ass response certainly got the “Hate Crew” fired up.
Hate Crew?… pffffft!… more like “Alexi-ain’t-that-Great-Crew!”, more like, “bought-a-ticket-too-Late-Crew!”, more like, “It’s-not-my-fault-you’re-a-virgin-and-can’t-get-a-Date-Crew”!!
But to the weak attacking the MH castle? Whatever… we’ve got the Head Cases, the fucking MH diehards, armed to the teeth and defending us to the bitterest of deaths.
For every person that complains about the tour getting canceled the Head Cases are like “shut the fuck up, life goes on, M F’n H to the death!!!” So for every one of those people, I thank you VERY much. Truly, from the bottom of my heart, I appreciate the fact that you do that. Because shit DOES happen and sometimes life DOESN’T go the way you want it to.”
The full journal entry is an interesting read and can be found below or over at the bands, ahem, Facebook. Machine Head will have a new album titled “Bloodstone & Diamonds” released on November 10th through Nuclear Blast Entertainment.
