Lamb of God's Randy Blythe 'disgusted' by Medford, OR audience

After asking for a minute of silence during their set in honor of the school shooting victims in Connecticut, Lamb Of God frontman Randy Blythe was thoroughly unhappy with a portion of the audience at a Medford, Oregon venue. Blythe later had the following to say via Instagram:

"I have never been more disgusted with an audience in my life. I wish we hadn't played. We, Lamb of God, asked for sixty seconds of silence during our first set break to honor the dead children and teachers in CT. It seemed appropriate- it's a goddamned national TRAGEDY. Most of the crowd complied, but several didn't, some cursing and even laughing. I wanted to walk off stage. I am so disgusted right now- if you were one of those who wouldn't shut up for SIXTY LOUSY SECONDS to honor twenty MURDERED CHILDREN- go look in the mirror. You are looking at a piece of shit. Your parents are obviously pieces of shit too, because they raised you to behave with no dignity.

"To the fans who were respectful, I thank you. I am also sorry you have so many goddamned assholes in your community. You should do something about that. This shit would not have happened at a Lamb of God show where I live, and that is a FACT. We have more manners.

I am just disgusted. Thoroughly DIGUSTED. You yelling people give metal a band name-screw that, you give humanity a bad name. Grow up. Your parents should have beaten some manners into you, you savage little beasts. With that I will go to bed, say a prayer for those suffering, and hope for a better day tomorrow, because tonight SUCKED."

Roses are red. Violets are blue. Boobs.

Be careful, Medford. He could kill you.

ninnymugget 12/16/2012 7:16:38 PM

anonymous 12/16/2012 7:33:42 PM

Guilty conscious?

anonymous 12/16/2012 7:34:09 PM

he says it like he didnt play a role in shaping those pieces of shit. More than sure He influenced every one of those people who hes putting down. They are attending a LOG show and im sure they all look up to Randy.

He should of threw them off the stage. fcker beat me to it.

anonymous 12/16/2012 8:03:35 PM

To whoever said that he helped mold those people your a gay. Iv met randy numerous times and he is nothing short of a very well moralized and polite person. Just because he playes music your bitch ass doesn't like doesn't make him bad. You name off the music you listen to and I can probably tell you why your such a whiney bitch

anonymous 12/16/2012 8:04:20 PM

So hes pretty much saying hes disgusted by the smell of his own shit.

anonymous 12/16/2012 8:12:11 PM

Randy is right. All of u who have comment'd should be ashamed. 20 little 1st graders were massacred, along with 6 adults.... & u all act like a bunch of uncaring jerks!! Maybe the next time a shooting happens, it could be someone u care about... if that's even possible!! Randy said, ur all a piece of shit!!

anonymous 12/16/2012 8:21:46 PM

Why even attempt that at a Metal concert? Almost everyones drinking and Drunk people are like retards. Hes smart enough to know what would happen.

anonymous 12/16/2012 8:25:31 PM

^ and you are posting on lambgoat with us wagging your fat finger. You are truly better than all of us crotch rot

ineedsalt 12/16/2012 8:35:14 PM

computer raised metal kids with their edgy humor, laughing at tragedy. damn them to emoticon hell. horrible what happened in CT, not surprised at all about the crowd at the show

anonymous 12/16/2012 8:37:40 PM

randy's an old pssy, and log blows, they're one step from numetal, the vocals sound like my cackling farts after i eat chocolate...i have no respect for a man whose vocals sound like burnt butthole farts.

anonymous 12/16/2012 8:46:56 PM

he should have involuntarily manslaughtered them

anonymous 12/16/2012 9:30:15 PM


anonymous 12/16/2012 9:38:39 PM

moment of silence? fck off.

anonymous 12/16/2012 9:53:03 PM

Its too bad people are dismissing what Randy is trying to express about how a bunch of a$$holes couldnt show some respect. Instead you are dissing him and LOG because of your distaste for him and their music. Shut up and see the bigger picture. I do agree with the person who mentioned how the alcohol may have played a factor in the disruption. to that i also say, if you cant consume booze without being a complete jerk then you probably shouldnt be drinking.

anonymous 12/16/2012 11:15:27 PM

moment of silence? fck off. you're one edgy mutherfcker. you don't give a shit and that's what makes you cool. Hell I don't think i'll ever turn out as cool as you even if I start not caring about the death of 20 children tomorrow. I have a lot of catching up to do.

anonymous 12/16/2012 11:24:28 PM

I'd walk 500 miles to see Kitty.

anonymous 12/17/2012 1:34:13 AM

I wonder if people were upset by the fact that he didn't mention the victims of the Clackamas, Oregon shooting as well in regard to hosting the moment of silence. Not that the behavior he describes would be an acceptable response.

anonymous 12/17/2012 1:37:45 AM

I was in that audience and agree with Randy. It's a shame the trashy people in this community screwed it up for any future visits. People really are a product of their environment

anonymous 12/17/2012 4:15:16 AM

I too was in that audience and I'm sure it was just a few idiots drinking. It's disrespectful for sure, but again, it's a metal show in which some people are DRUNK and acting STUPID. It's ridic how much attention this story is getting much less Randy flipping out on instagram.

anonymous 12/17/2012 5:53:15 AM

how were the fcktards doing this not knifed?

xburnfacex 12/17/2012 6:34:39 AM


anonymous 12/17/2012 6:45:57 AM

Stop making shit music for rednecks, said rednecks will stop showing up at your shows. Simple. Hope this fck goes to jail next year.

anonymous 12/17/2012 7:01:41 AM

this is much better if you read it out loud in a thurston howell III voice.

anonymous 12/17/2012 7:03:14 AM

to all you inconsiderate jerks, how would you feel if your own 20 children died? huh?!

anonymous 12/17/2012 8:37:50 AM

For once I agree with Randy. I hope the fckers that thought it would funny to disrespect the memory of those 20 kids got punched in the face.

anonymous 12/17/2012 9:08:25 AM

If I had 20 fcking children I'd be ecstatic to get my life back.

anonymous 12/17/2012 9:47:53 AM

it was all a test to see who gives a fck. apparently medford doesn't.

anonymous 12/17/2012 10:36:50 AM

All this hate for the gunman is bullshit. His actions did 10000000x more for the environment than any of you Prius-driving recycling gays. And he did us the courtesy of offing himself to avoid an expensive trial. What's not to like there?

anonymous 12/17/2012 10:41:29 AM

Why is it when a bunch of white kids get murdered it's news? Let's have a moment of silence for all the black kids killed in the streets because no one gives a fck about them enough to remember their names. It's a daily national tragedy so Randy and all these other people out there need to stop being so damn holier-than-thou and shut the fck up.

anonymous 12/17/2012 11:27:05 AM

How ironic, coming from a murderer.

anonymous 12/17/2012 11:39:49 AM

He should have killed them too

anonymous 12/17/2012 12:05:18 PM

Did he throw anybody off stage and kill them on accident?

anonymous 12/17/2012 1:15:04 PM

ya i was there u dumbasses that was very disrespectful,i dont even have the words it makes us look bad as metal peeps and oregonians, i play with a local metal band in oregon metal band and never had seen such disrespectfulness randy thx for playing anyway and takin the time to chat with me and taking my cd u are the best \m/

Zordon2 12/17/2012 2:45:23 PM

But...where was the moment of silence for the person that HE killed?

anonymous 12/17/2012 3:57:15 PM

i was totally into LOG back when they used to murder innocent fans, now they have just fcking SOLD OUT.

Snoopy2 12/17/2012 9:48:10 PM

We are all lambs of god, except for the few that heckles during your social political commentary on current events. Meanwhile in Czech, manslaughtering your European fans are perfectly fine!

anonymous 12/17/2012 10:40:51 PM

ya i was there u dumbasses that was very disrespectful,i dont even have the words it makes us look bad as metal peeps and oregonians, i play with a local metal band in oregon metal band and never had seen such disrespectfulness randy thx for playing anyway and takin the time to chat with me and taking my cd u are the best \m/ ^^Try taking a breath and using a comma or a period bro. Your entire response confirms the stereotypes of Oregonians, douche nozzletossDCN acknowledged

anonymous 12/18/2012 2:19:34 AM

you know, he kills one kid in Europe and suddenly he is an expert on murder and moments of silence.

lambgoat 12/18/2012 5:03:06 AM

egomaniac. he should appreciate what he has.... a third-tier metal band that succeeded by being totally bland.

anonymous 12/20/2012 8:18:33 PM

Randy Blythe didn't kill anyone on purpose or accident. He was probably protecting himself inscase that kid had a knife or a gun or what ever on him. Ever herd of a guy named Dimebag Darrel? Remember that story? YOUR NOT SUPOSE TO JUMP ON STAGE! It was security's falt for not being on top of shit and the crowds falt for not catching him like metal heads should do. RIP to the victims. In other words Oregon troll. Little People Big world. Molly Trolloff is hot.

What do you expect? No self respecting human would listen to your music. Randy, you're an ignorant, filthy, low life and I imagine your "music" attracts the same. If you have any sense of self respect you would quit the music business, take a bath, and educate yourself. You're an idiot, and if we ever cross paths I'm going to beat your stupid ass. Bodyguards or not, anyone who fills youths heads with your brand of ignorance has it coming. Shocked that your fans are idiots lol.

anonymous 2/20/2013 7:07:11 PM

Hi. So this is some one who was actually AT the show. Its call moving on. I think we'd all like too. No need for EVERY fck'N BAND to have their 2 cents. Seriously though, don't come back to Medford. Was the shitty show I'd been too. Sylosis put on a better set than the rest of you jack offs. Maybe cause they didn't see fit to silence a whole crowd. Call it whatever you want, y'all are dumb. This is dumb, and the fact I had the time to write in on this. Also dumb.

anonymous 2/4/2016 8:27:05 PM

I was there, and I remember this. I assumed those being disrespectful during the moment of silence hadn't heard him announce. I thought it was moving to honor the lil victims. Such a sad thing

anonymous 2/17/2016 6:13:55 PM

way to judge a whole group of people off a few individuals. what if we all hated lamb of god because randy blythe killed someone accidentally, and called the whole band drunken murderers? exactly
