85 commentsPost Comment
i wish they would've been robbed of their young lives. worthless no talent ass hats.
it's becoming quite clear that bands should never venture outside of the studio
Was never a fan of this band, but anyone who has ever been in a band knows that this is horrible and could ruin you.
never let a van hold your shit, they're pussies.
Wouldn't have happened if they had a better drummer.
*listens to two portable recording devices containing hours of song ideas that are now lost forever* "UGH!" -Italian_Thief
at least they didn't get a bag of jewels stolen
witnesses claim the suspect is a mustachiod man around 5' tall wearing blue overalls, red shirt, and a red hat with the letter M printed on it.
wow they coulda like, took all there guitars,basses,drum sets, cabs etc, should be happy thats all they nabbed.
they set up a paypal....so people can help them replace iPods and Laptops....what a fcking joke. I like Pelican but this is fcking pathetic. When you lose a bag of jewels come talk to me, shits weeaaak.
Donated .23¢ because they said it would go a long way.
nothing like some good ole fashion dirty dego theivory to put a damper on a a shit bands tour of europe. good job random greasy Italian vandals *gives thumbs up
"and, most devastatingly, a number of personal journals" ...... Hahahah!
Steve_Austin this is fcking pathetic. When you lose a bag of jewels come talk to me, shits weeaaak. Shut the fck up.

THEY SHOULD HAVE KEPT THEIR VALUABLE POSSESSIONS IN THEIR ENORMOUS BILLS
maybe the thieves left some arm hair samples to give to the policia
these comments have been the funniest ive read on here in a long time.
kenny obviously hasn't read the byd vanflip news story
i thought it would be a more interesting story if they were 'robbed" at gunpoint,.
How about a link to your merch at a discounted price
Stupid wops robbed them, just like they robbed me on eBay. fck Italy.
computers, ipods, wallets, journals....asking for a handout for mostly personal stuff, sweet.
The contents including computers, passports, wallets, and well... a bag of jewels.
it was a grease ball promoter and two other unidentified goons
Hmm, never woulda thought lambgoat was a haven for wop sympathizers. As if rimming yourselves to Gwar b-sides wasn't bad enough. This place is a cespool.
All song ideas stolen included shit drumming and no songs that sounded like Drought... NOthing was lost.
the persons responsible have escaped to the one place they won't ever be found again.............................the twilight zone
I hope the thieves installed some sort of flipping mechanism on the van.
they posted a video diary on youtube: http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=oHg5SJYRHA0
playdough_head 10/5/2008 10:33:40 PM Wouldn't have happened if they had a better drummer. LOLLLLLL
Insure your shit, dumbfcks. It's cheap as fck to insure musical equipment.
Could never get into this band simply because the drummer is terrible. Then asking for money because you are paid shit from playing music that hardly anyone likes. Lame! I'll be reasonable though, sucks about the robbery. At least everyone is ok.
at the risk of sounding like a complete douche im really confused by the bag of jewels comments
hey cool, i got robbed in NC last night. glad im not the only one. send me money at email@example.com... or just send me a laptop, and xbox 360, and an ipod loaded with a shitton of good music.
I wish them the best, and I hope they are able to get back up after this.
Attn: Bands who leave all of their important shit in the van with no one watching it... STOP IT!!!

Insure your shit before leaving for tour morons
Oh yea, you hate Pelican so much you're glad they had thousands of dollars of personal shit stolen. Man you're cool. I'd say grow up, but that's an empty comment. Get fcked works better.
rocknroll_goonsquad 10/5/2008 10:31:53 PM never let a van hold your shit, they're pussies.
that really sucks, the band can't do much do defend themselves besides getting an armored van or some shit.
they were robbed of there talent awhile ago...to bad you can get new ipods and journals
.....i can't even think of that guy as "a drummer".Anyway, i'm so damn disapponited about what happend to them,Italy has ashamed itself once again.
This band isnt my favorite,but this isnt fair either way.They should rename this site To Heartless Bitches.com since everyone is so cool about bashing everything that lambgoat posts.
Super major bum out. Advice to touring bands: Leave someone like your driver or ungrateful merch guy back at the van anytime you leave it to go sight seeing. That or make your van look tougher.
FOLLOW THE TRAIL OF PIZZA CRUMS BACK TO THE BURGLAR'S HOUSE
sorry to hear about this dudes. best of luck and return home safe.
God dammit. I hope you guys can make it through this. That would be the most horrible feeling day in the band's history I believe. So unfair.
I'd donate if they agreed to get a drummer who doesnt blow
Ahhh, it's an amazing thing. Once again, another band that a year or longer ago, everyone was sucking the dudes' dcks, now just negative shit when turmoil comes their way. Oh lambgoat... you never cease to amaze me.
meandi 10/6/2008 12:04:10 AM maybe the thieves left some arm hair samples to give to the policia LOL. shit sucks though.
this would never happen under mccain...amahrite? wed bomb Italy immediately.
I had a pair of Rocawear sweatpants stolen from our van in Baltimore a few years ago. I can only hope some bum used them to keep him and his family warm.
umm. it's rome. what the fck did they expect? and why the fck did they leave their wallets in their bags?
Mics, money, and passports? what a total pain in the ass. I'm glad the whole van didn't get taken. Jewels or no jewels, I'm pitching in. Over the years, they have given me more enjoyment than I've paid for.
They updated the donation addy to firstname.lastname@example.org
Tired of shitty bands begging for $$$ when they get shit stolen/van flip. Get a real job, shitbags
you can also donate to my cause (not sure what it is yet, but whatever you can give will go a long way) email@example.com
Get a new drummer and I will care about you.
hey cool, i got robbed in NC last night. glad im not the only one. send me money at firstname.lastname@example.org... or just send me a laptop, and xbox 360, and an ipod loaded with a shitton of good music. hah fck.
