Saw this video on YouTube. I know that it was uploaded a while ago in 2011. But I am still going to address this. Because I laughed my butt off at this and its bound to make metal fans unite against this kind of ignorance and intolerance and juvenile behavior.

I must admit that it appears the person who made this video is probably under the age of twelve. Definitely not a high school student at all.

So I’m not going to just go ghetto on this girl, but I am going to respond. I just have to because of the amount of laughs it brought to me over her OPINION of heavy metal music.

Let me repeat….. this is only her opinion and has no concrete evidence or connection to what she is saying. She does not provide any references to back up what is being said either.

So let’s sit back and watch this brief “heavy metal PSA” together and allow me a few moments of commentary because this video is so bad… TOO much so that it shouldn’t just be let go. Its only 109 seconds long. Less than two full minutes.

Let’s begin.

0:09 – “Heavy metal is evil and bad. It is the music of the devil.” No. Not all of it. There is some types of heavy metal music that harps on the topic of Satanism and the devil. But not ALL of it. 

0:19 – “People who listen to it are evil bad people. All they do is think about death and the devil.” Actually not really. I’m sitting here thinking about different things. What to eat later. How to make it to certain events coming up soon. Girls. Sex. But none of it has anything to do with death OR the devil. So, sorry, you’re totally wrong because not “all they do is” think about death and the devil.

0:24 – “The music is bad too. All it is is fat people screaming and yelling about the devil…” The music being bad is a simple matter of personal opinion. However, I do not know of any one person who sings or who is involved in heavy metal music to be fat. I can think of several kinds of people who are in heavy metal… both local and internationally well known. NONE of them are fat. What’s your definition of fat though? Nobody that I know is overweight. But if the music is bad- that’s a personal opinion. 

0:31 – “Metalheads are ugly too. Real people who like rap and pop are soooooo more awesome than people who like that evil stuff.” First of all, your grammar officially SUCKS. Secondly, you are beginning to show a lot about yourself with this video. You are obviously more interesting in rap and pop music and therefore will not even entertain the idea of branching out and listening to other genres of music, such as heavy metal, because you have it wrapped tightly around your brain that it IS evil. When the majority factor of heavy metal is not evil. I’m going to go ahead and assume right here and now that you were taught this by a religion organization. Perhaps a youth ministry or a church. And they didn’t say anything about your precious pop and rap music, so since your religious leaders said that heavy metal is evil and nothing but the devil….. therefore pop and rap is awesome and heavy metal is not. Again, that is a personal opinion of yours. And what the heck is your problem???? “Metalheads are ugly too.” Have you fallen and struck your head recently? Ugly is within the eye of the beholder, but there are some ugly people in rap and pop as well. Ugly people are everywhere!! Not just in heavy metal. Get a grip, go outside and observe. But what really bothers me at this point is your shitty grammar. You MUST be a young one to not have caught on to your own grammar mistakes. You didn’t go back and proofread a thing!!! 

0:45 – Now you have an audio comparison. I do not understand what’s going on with the heavy metal song that you have selected. I simply do not recognize it. 

0:49 – “If you want REAL music listen to Eminem or Mac Miller. They talk about real life, and are soooooooo hot and talented.” So everything on the planet that is NOT Eminem and/or Mac Miller’s music…. is not music at all? This is what you are implying. Granted you’re still on your kick to diss heavy metal. But in this statement you outdid yourself and pretty much insinuated that ALL MUSIC IS NOT MUSIC, unless it is Eminem and/or Mac Miller. As far as them being “sooooo hot and talented” that again is YOUR opinion. So this video pretty much is one big soapbox of your opinion on music and what YOU think is good and what YOU think is evil. You simply do not know what heavy metal talks about in their lyrics and songs. You’ve made that abundantly clear without having to say a word. How ignorant can you get?? And we’ve still got another minute to go of this heavily opinionated stuff.  “Hot and talented” you say– clearly these are your favorite music artists and they honestly have no business being the exaAnd in addition…… once more, your grammar is horrible!! Why didn’t you fix it when you had a chance?

1:01 – Again is the audio comparison. This is not the heavy metal portion, that was first. Now you have chosen to place Mac Miller’s music to compare to the heavy metal portion that you had before. (I had to look it up to find out who it was first off. You obviously have a thing for Mac Miller’s music because you’ve brought up the fact that Mac Miller’s music is the only thing that is music and nothing else is music.) But still with this portion of the comparison, I cannot understand the words going on here!!! So at 0:24 you said that it was just yelling and screaming. Well this sounds like a bunch of garbled nonsense! What’s the difference if you are screaming and yelling or if you are mumbling and rambling with nonsense? Not to mention that the moment at 1:10 shows someone consuming food, virtually stealing from their job. NICE touch!!!! So stealing is much better than yelling and screaming. Got it.

1:24- “So now that ppl know that metal sucks, everyone should listen to real music, like rap, pop, and techno. Stuff that isn’t yelling or screaming!” Have you heard some of stuff in rap, pop, and techno as of lately???? Some of the time they ARE yelling and screaming. Not all of it…. but there are some examples of it where they are screaming. Plus the lyrics of rap and pop… really? You wanna keep going with this??? And what is this? “ppl”… this isn’t a text message. Learn to spell.

1:32- “They play instruments which take no talent. Real talent is rapping and dancing, not playing guitar, unless your Justin Bieber, he plays guitar so good!!!” Okay you must be REALLY REALLY REALLY young. Yes it takes talent to rap and rap well. Yes it takes a bit of talent to dance. But it also takes “real talent” to play ANY INSTRUMENT!!!! I mean ALL OF THEM!!!!! You dare to champion Justin Bieber against people who have been in the music industry almost twice as long as Bieber has been alive!! Bieber may be very popular and famous.. but he’s still a nobody. He is a shining star that is fading. And damnit already with your grammar!!!!!! You are a really good candidate for being someone grounded from being on the Internet. 

1:39- “Jesus doesn’t like metal. Jesus < 3 ‘s rap and pop.” I sure would really love for you to tell me how you KNOW what Jesus likes and what Jesus loves, as far as music is concerned. Please tell me how you know for a fact that Jesus doesn’t like metal and loves rap and pop????? With a statement like that, I am almost assured that you were TOLD by someone else (probably by the church) that metal is bad, evil, and of the devil. They told you this so that you don’t listen to it. And even though you did not say this in your video, I would not be surprised if they told you that if you listen to heavy metal, you are going to hell. Didn’t they???

So thank you very much for this video. I laughed so hard!! I guess I’m evil. I guess I am the devil too!!! According to your own words printed in this video…. I needed the laugh. I really did. And you also come across to prove my point that stupid people shouldn’t breed.

Here we are. The 666th post of DAMBREAKER.

I had no idea what I was going to write about. I thought perhaps I would write about something evil, dark, and disturbing. But there’s already so much of that out there on the Internet that if I was to do it, nobody would really pay attention. And I doubt that anyone wants to really hear about my exes.

I asked around for opinion to those I know who read this blog more often than others. They couldn’t come up with any ideas.

And so research is what it was. Then I stumbled across a word relating to the number:

Hexakosioihexekontahexaphobia. 666

Damn. What? Not even I.. who needed only four tries to say the word “floccinaucinihilipilification” correctly, would even bother trying to say this word!

What is it? Well, the word “phobia” is on the end so then what is it a fear of?


And now you honestly and truly know that there is a phobia for EVERYTHING under the sun!!!!

However the fear is actually there and comes up a lot more than one would think.

When I was a child, there was a neighborhood kid who came running across the street to show me his math textbook. He was in an extreme panic mode when he asked me to take a look at his math assignment.

Ironically sixth math problem on the page was “999-333=?” and even though he claimed that he knew the answer to the problem, his question for me was “Is it okay to write down the answer?”

Wow. Really kid? It’s math. Nothing else.

But it does get a lot more weird.

 A prominent example is Nancy and Ronald Reagan who, in 1989, when moving to their home in the Bel-Air section of Los Angeles after the 1988 election, had its address 666 St. Cloud Road changed to 668 St. Cloud Road

There were reports of pregnant women who were terrified of the possibility of giving birth to their child when the 6th of June 2006 came around. That’s pretty strange!!

The date of the sixth of June in the year 2006 , no matter how you write it,  would be 06-06-06.

A bunch of heavy metal bands were pushing to get their new albums finished for release so that it could be released on that exact day, including the band SLAYER, but many of them failed for various reasons. 666seanNothing major actually happened on 06-06-06. At least nothing that would be worth mentioning for this post. It was however the 62nd anniversary of D-Day. And that’s about it.

Former White Zombie bass player, Sean Yseult was  born on the sixth of June in the year 1966. But that would be 06-06-66. I think that’s too many sixes.

There was a significant killer tornado that struck Topeka, Kansas.. but that was two days later on the 8th of June of 1966. So that was too late.

A more recent example came in November 2013, when Codie Thacker, a cross-country runner at Whitley County High School in Williamsburg, Kentucky, refused to run in her Kentucky High School Athletic Association regional meet, forfeiting a chance at qualifying for the state championships, when her coach drew bib number 666.

People fear the number of 666. And it is inexplicable.

The only reference we have is the biblical passage in the book of Revelations at the end, saying that #1- it is a human number and #2- its the number of the beast (in which we are led to believe would be the Devil.)

I could not find anywhere else where this number would come up and have such a significance in society or culture.

Not even the Satanists bother to use the number 666 – other than for shock value. It means nothing to them.

Other uses with 666 have been numbered highways.

There are/were numbered highways with “666” in Belgium, Ireland, Canada, Italy, Sweden, United Kingdom, and the United States of America. However in Ontario Canada, Ontario Highway 666 was changed to 658 in 1985. But I cannot confirm the reasons why.

Even in the big state of Texas, there is a highway 666.

Farm to Market Road 666 (FM 666) is a farm-to-market road in the state of Texas that serves Nueces County and San Patricio County. The road begins at FM 70 in Bishop and continues north as it intersects both Texas State Highway 44 (also known as TX 44) in Banquete and FM 624 in Bluntzer. As the road enters San Patricio County, it enters the city of San Patricio, and, during the end of its route, is parallel to Interstate 37 (I-37). The road eventually ends in the city of Mathis at TX 359.

FM 666 was designated in 1945 from SH 44 in Banquete southward and eastward to US 77 in Driscoll. In 1949, FM 666 extended north to US 59(now SH 359) in Mathis. In 1955, the section of FM 666 from US 77 to its current junction with FM 665 was transferred to FM 665. In 1957, FM 666 extended south to FM 70, completing its current route.

Its length is 36.7 miles (59.1 km) long. 666room

In 2010, I had an “experience with 666. I stayed with someone that I should not have been with in a Marriott Hotel along the Riverwalk in San Antonio, Texas.

The room number that was assigned to the woman was literally 666. She looked at me all funny, but then was laughing about it and then shrugged it off. She WAS “evil” though. I only say that because with the amount of time I spent with her in that hotel room, after all of that …. she was MARRIED.

But that is neither here nor there. I was where I should not have been to begin with.

And still, the answer to the question “Why is this number evil?” remains unanswered. At least in my mind.

It is the number in between 665 and 667. And the next blog post here will be 667.

What scares you? What are your phobias???
