Well, this is spreading like a wildfire underground; It seems like rapper/anger management poster boy Chris Brown decided to sport the same sort of leather jacket I myself wore 24/7 as a teen. All the classic bands are there – The Exploited, D.R.I., Corrosion of Conformity‘s skull, one of my own personal faves Suicidal Tendencies etc. etc. Hardcore is hip baby! The kids are lapping it up like kittens at a bowl of cream! Makes me wonder when Sony is gonna gimme a call about Gå Vidare till Norrmalmstorg‘s EP Blästrad! having 24.000+ visitors so far on Bandcamp.
Well, the bands themselves have been reacting to this. Above shows Municipal Waste‘s reply on Twitter, but it seems the whole thing started with D.R.I.’s reply on their Facebook yesterday:
Thanks for the free publicity/advertising Chris brown,we guess, but you are still a fucking loser. Wonder how much he paid for the jacket….or if he even knows any of the bands!
And FYI I’m not kidding about GVtN’s statistics. How about giving the EP a spin here. Oh, and speaking of The Exploited, I played the shit out of this 7″ EP back in the 80s:
