When some talentless piece of scum from one of these current bands dies or is hospitalised there are a bunch of comments. Pussies even getting mad when people make jokes about it. WHEN DR KNOW FROM fckING BAD BRAINS IS ON HIS DEATH BED NOBODY SEEMS TO GIVE A fck. I HOPE THE CLOWNS JOKING ABOUT THIS GET KICKED OUT OF THEIR MOM'S BASEMENT AND THEN KILL THEMSELVES.
