The fact that these are the most read stories on here shows how much of a commercial, trendy and mainstream joke the metal/hardcore community has evolved into. Lambgoat in 2000-2005 was never even close to headlines or stupidity and was about music. These headlines reveal even small time mourons live lives of interest close to that of the Kardashians.
