Buddy Not Like

One of the great the great things about the Internet is that you can travel to far away places meet *interesting* people and laugh at them without fear that they'll throw a punch at you. Today we travel to the LA Punk/Music/Gossip scene and meet BuddyHead. Buddy has come out with his best and worst music list of 2003. Here are some Buddy snippets:

Kings Of Leon - Youth And Young Manhood -...just another band with dorky beards playing nipple high guitars...tour state fairs in the Midwest and play to slack-jawed, sister fucking NASCAR hicks...

Thursday - War All The Time
You turn your back for 5 minutes, turn around, and there's a gazillion kids latched onto this mall-emo crap, and now everywhere you turn this 8 foot tall, gap toothed mongoloid is whining about his life like a 4 year old girl who lost her favorite Barbie. It's amazing to think how when Thursday recorded this album, and that whiner was in the vocal booth, besides the other tone deaf mutant band members, there had to be at least a producer and maybe two engineers in the room when these kids shit out these horribly fruity and out of key vocals onto tape. And you know one of those guys probably said, "Ummm... well... you see... I think you're a bit out of key there... maybe we should try another take? Or we can just fix it in pro tools here with auto tune." To which the entire band had to reply, "No, it's perfect. It doesn't matter that he sounds like a crying grade school girl that's reading her diary out loud, and our backups sound like we're being raped by a 7-foot tall black man...

Metallica - St. Anger
More or less, this is some old guy barking out of key over the sound that happens when a garbage can gets thrown down a flight of stairs. I've heard the crackheads playing on plastic buckets for quarters in my neighborhood get better drum sounds than this.
