      terrible comment

    How does Stone Sour end up getting on every bill, everywhere!? My God.

    i hear a legitimate performance of “passenger” live coming in the near future, which would be awesome considering Greg from Dillinger sounds like he is straining most of the time (most likely as a result of his shirts being too tight).

      That would be awesome but I highly doubt it will happen… I bet Maynard isn’t interested in performing with them anymore because it seems the guys always fucked the song up when he sang with them. Have a listen: and .

      Not to mention I think it’s safe to say this isn’t an easy bit for Maynard to sing now.. Would still be better than Chino, though!!

    How does Japan always land stuff like this? Their economy contracted at a rate of 3.5% last quarter sparking concerns of a sustained regional slowdown.

      Japans metal fans dont give a fuck about this, hence the bitchin festivals.

      Speakin of which, did anyone notice the cheapest ticket (1 day pass, standing room) is ¥14,000 which equals $2250. They must really like to rock over there.

      • JohnnyWetTowel

        Yeeeeeeaaahhhh, ¥14,000 at the current exchange rate is only US$170.62

        You were close though.

      • Houmie

        Whoops my bad. When I googled the number along with the currency symbol, it assumed I was talking about Chinese yuan. Carry on.

  • kturl69

    Completely off topic but very entertaining to say the least. If you have a weak stomach, I suggest you do not watch.

    This is going to be awkward if Koi No Yokan doesn’t go over well in Japanese markets.
