Emmure’s Frankie Palmeri Vents On Criticism Of His Lyrics

Emmure frontman Frankie Palmeri hit his Twitter earlier today to vent on the flack he takes online regarding his lyrics. On that he offered:

“I love the comments I read online about what I should or shouldn’t be writing about in my songs. What a horrid age of unappreciative fucks.”

Comments

  • BooThisMan

    Go flatten your brims fagot

    • jakeunknown

      if i could pause time, i’d spend a lot of it bending everyones brims

      • WURST

        hahaha

    • Vautour

      Did Wurst like this 5 times or how did homophobia become so successful over here?

      • WURST

        your joke sucked.

  • Legion

    Are you sure it didn’t go more like this?:

    “I love the comments I read online about what I should or shouldn’t be writing about in my songs. (Breakdown) What a horrid age of unappreciative fucks. (Breakdown)”

    • brianvsshark

      It’s more like:

      ” I love the comments(breakdown) I read online(breakdown) about what I should(breakdown) or shouldn’t be writing(breakdown) about in my songs. (breakdown)(breakdown)(breakdown) What(breakdown) a(breakdown)..ahhh fuck it…(breakdown…breakdown…breakdown….etc. korn/90′s numetal…(breakdown)…chunk chunk chunk

    I’m confused by his use the the word ‘unappreciative’. I ‘appreciate’ my mom for giving me life, but that people don’t like this guys’ band, really has nothing to do with ‘appreciation’, unless you go the route, I don’t appreciate your lyrics about Mega Man vs Ryu, or cocaine dicks or whatever juvenile crap he’s writing.

    And as far as ‘should or should not write’, the guy ‘s lyrics read like he’s at a fifth grade reading level, so maybe he shouldn’t be writing anything at all.

    • AMeN

      Cocaine dicks hahahah, classic

  • wearesorta138

    To sum up…He’s happy writing about wanting to watch his girl blow another dude. However, not so happy for being made fun of for it.

  • Moxy? Oh, Brian

    i’m not sure what he was hoping to accomplish by making a shallow, unintelligent complaint about people thinking he has shallow, unintelligent lyrics. i guess the problem with being stupid is you’re not smart enough to realize it.

    • Moxy? Oh, Brian

      sidebar…is anyone else completely unsurprised that Frankie Palmieri sits at home and googles himself?

      • WURST

        not one bit.

      • Vautour

        He doesn’t have to google himself to get shit rubbed right into his face because of his lyrics or his band’s music. Dozens (probably rather hundreds) of kids ‘like’ the band on Facebook just to comment on pictures, videos, whatever the band posts, saying how their lyrics and music suck. Doesn’t matter if you like Emmure or not – but spending time with shit like that is still even a bit less mature than Frankie’s lyrics.

  • Fred Fred Burger (Darkdevout)

    This band is going nowhere, they’re just a mid-level band that opens for bigger bands at small clubs, this guy acts like he made it hence with the lyrics “I WANT TO SEE YOU SUUUUUCK HIS DIIIIICK” I think it was some guy on the PRP who told me he said that because people thought he would never “make it” well guess what all your money is going to your tour bus and your barely making enough money to afford McDonalds, congrats on making it!

    • Vautour

      Despite all the justified criticism, I don’t get what you’re talking about. Each of their albums has sold better than the one before, also they’re doing headline tours pretty regularly (even in Europe and Asia). If they open for other bands, those bands are usually on the level of Hatebreed or Asking Alexandria (whom I don’t like, but they sell and do pretty well).

  • schuler

    This dude.

  • kturl69

    The new Fox game show “Are You Smarter Than Frankie Palmeri?”

    • adamonfire

      “Yes” – next contestant! “Yes”.

      Still more entertaining than The Big Bang Theory.

  • BlueBalls

    Easily the worst “lyricist” in modern times. The subject matter is the least of his problems.

  • DJ Obi-Wan Kaczynski

    he should just say Mike Tyson wrote all his lyrics and this band would instantly become awesome.

  • RUREADY2JIGGLE?

    What I wanna know is, who the fuck is listening to this band enough to criticize them in the first place? Never heard a single note, never will.

    • Lifeseclipse

      I have listened to nothing also. But instead of leaving that in a comment, I’ll just reply to yours saying that I am in the same boat. It’s alot less work for me this way. I’ve never even heard of Emmure, but it seems mention of the name gets everyone’s jimmies rustled right up.

  • Gifford

    Hes probably talking about the Facebook group “Emmure Sucks” which at one point was 5000+ members strong. He got on there a couple times and started started talking shit to kids. Pure Gold.

    • Lifeseclipse

      I’m heading over to join this group right now. I like gold.

      • adamonfire

        Bong and a blintz?

      • Gifford

        I dont know if it still up, Ive had my FB account deactivated, so after this bit of info i went to go check to see what they had to say, couldnt find the group. Its probably still there.

  • http://www.facebook.com/slippingonnoise Slipping On Noise

    I’ve never heard this bands music until just now. So I went to YouTube and listened to ‘Drug Dealer Friend’. What a terrible, terrible experience it was.

    • http://twitter.com/jayofdajungle jayofdajungle

      What about “R2deepthroat”, it’s like a dick-sucking robot. Get it? “Immaculate Misconception” it’s like the opposite of Jesus being born, or maybe it’s about how the Franco Harris touchdown shouldn’t have been allowed? Frankie is so clever it’s open to vatious interpretations.

      • http://twitter.com/jayofdajungle jayofdajungle

        *various

      • Moxy? Oh, Brian

        see, that’s the thing. Frankie is a very nuanced lyrical genius. the titles are one thing…referencing this like whole other different thing.

  • http://twitter.com/jayofdajungle jayofdajungle

    Any word on Allichs? I’m afraid something terrible happened to everyone’s favorite Limp Bizkit fan.

  • Pank On Da Inside

    I got these cheeseburgers man! Nigga I’ll suck yo dick!

    • WURST

      Dont Be A Menace…, haha.

    • Moxy? Oh, Brian

      look at that…a dumb ass Pank comment that has nothing to do with anything whatsoever…followed by a Wurst comment talking about how funny it was.

      …you two could be the most derivative comedy duo of all time.

      • Moxy? Oh, Brian

        you could call it ‘Blackie and the Man’. I can see it now…Pank…a fat white guy in black-face like the old timey minstrel shows…and Wurst standing next to him laughing every time he says ‘nigga’. i think we’re on to something, here. i bet there’s like…30 people who’d watch that.

      • WURST

        All that because I like the movie “Dont Be A Menace..”? And you guys say every time I say something its negative or shit talking. I’ve been actively trying to stop fucking with people on here. Looks like you’ve taken over, sir.

      • Moxy? Oh, Brian

        …as of right now I only fuck with you two. and i don’t think you can consider yourself ‘reformed’ if you’ve gone 24 hours without being an asshole.

      • Pank On Da Inside

        Okay nigga! hurr is sumfin related to the topic just like Frankie ur a FAG! Stop trollin me ya nigga hatin bukakke boy! Nigga yo middle name must be Dominos cuz u fuckin cheeeezy!

      • Moxy? Oh, Brian

        i’m not trolling you. when i encounter your non sequitor bullshit i feel inclined to say something. i’ll repeat this for you again: i AM black. you are NOT. and beyond being ‘racist’ or ‘offensive’ or any other lame buzzwords, i find this character you do to be exceedingly obnoxious. now watch who the fuck you talkin to with those lame ass comebacks. nigga.

      • Moxy? Oh, Brian

        …’repeat this for you again’ …fucking goddamn it.

      • Pank On Da Inside

        Damn nigga what are u my probation officer?! I see you trolllin you haaaaatin! It took my black ass 2 days to make my 1st response to the post and it took u a lil under 30 min to respond! Nigga u trollin!

      • Moxy? Oh, Brian

        i hope you die.

    • RUREADY2JIGGLE?

      Nuh-uh, that’s the baby’s lunch!

      • http://twitter.com/jayofdajungle jayofdajungle

        Wrong hole fool!

  • allichs

    I’ve been in New York City for the past two weeks, back in Germany since Monday. thanks for caring jayofdajungle :)

    • http://twitter.com/jayofdajungle jayofdajungle

      I was in NYC for the Glassjaw shows, you should have called! : )

      • allichs

        you forgot to leave your phone number the last time we fucked each others butts ;) 8th July was our day of departure :( I wanted to go to see The Chariot live in NYC but I couldn’t make it because we booked our Niagara/Toronto tour during that period of time

      • revstevo

        Aww, you guys are sweet

  • Rev.J_Blumpkin

    Frankies pain is totally self induced. The problem with writing adult songs with lyrics about your favorite childhood things, is that everyone thinks you need to grow up. I love g.i.joe but you dont hear me trying to cookie monster growl a tune about how badass shipwreck was!

    • Moxy? Oh, Brian

      idk, man…Shockwave was pretty fucking awesome.

      • WURST

        Roadblock, nigga.

    • schuler

      If Emmure put out a record about lesser cartoons of the 80′s… let’s say a DinoRiders or Silverhawks or Centurions album, I’d buy that shit. Hell, if you look back at the uniforms, there was plenty of homoeroticism being slipped in edgewise, so this should be a natural extension for Frankie. Frankie. Frankie. Yeah, this dude’s name is Frankie.

  • mad_hiddy

    why does anyone even care about any of this? everyone should grow the fuck up.

    • WURST

      says the dude who said Randy Blythe should fry. ok.

    • http://twitter.com/jayofdajungle jayofdajungle

      Everyone’s favorite wet blanket strikes again! You are like the Robin Quivers of theprp. “Oh guys knock it off” Why do you even bother coming here, let alone post. This website is for entertainment. You are the antithesis of entertainment, you are a bore, and I hate looking at that ugly lesbian couple every time you post.

      • Surly

        In this case, the truth doesn’t hurt…it’s just damn funny.

      • revstevo

        I second that. While we’re at it, where’s bitter old man at?

    • RUREADY2JIGGLE?

      Funny, I thought Emmure seemed like the sort of thing mad_shiddy would enjoy.

    • Fred Fred Burger (Darkdevout)

      “Grow the fuck up” isn’t that what that guy said to you on the Randy post? and got 33 thumbs up?

  • dogsizedbird

    sophomoric lyrics. breakdown. repeat.

  • rudestyle

    This comment on one of their Youtube videos made me lol

    “NO OTHER BAND ON THE FUCKING PLANET HAS COMPLETELY BINARY TABS. Emmure does. Therefore, they’re unique.”

    • http://twitter.com/jayofdajungle jayofdajungle

      It’s only because they are huge Matrix fans, not because they suck

      • WURST

        No, I’m pretty sure it’s both.

      • G Scotty

        Wurst, i just realized that i gave a thumbs up to like 5 things you said in this news post. And in no way is that depressing! I like where this “not fucking with people as much” behavior is heading.
