Metalcore is a word that, if uttered in close proximity to people who consider themselves ‘true’ metalheads, has much the same effect as tossing a bucket full of garlic source into a room full of vampires.
Ed takes a break from normality and enters the aggressive, angry world of Metalcore. Complete with a collection of tongue-in-cheek profanities, it's Ed's Music Corner! Click read more to see what he has to say about This Means War.
Released in 1997, the Foo’s second album was undoubtedly a great one; fully equipped with an actual band this time, Grohl and the gang (they totally should have actually called themselves that) were trying to find their niche in the world of rock, experimenting with many sounds throughout the album, ranging from catastrophically thrashy – banging heaviness to a lighter, tranquil sound and pretty much everything in between. Sometimes this attempt to constantly mash together light and heavy does feel muddled and leaves you with a fairly bumpy ride, but on the whole these songs are crafted with excellency and precision, occasionally displaying some clear Nirvana influence with their soft-verse-heavy-chorus structure.
Green Day have certainly come a long way from their punk rock origins back in 1990. While still fairly poppy, they were still recognised (at least in their early days) as a solid punk rock band. Through the years they may have mellowed and gained more pop punk influences but their tripled release of Uno, Dos and Tre marks the full conversion from hard, heavy rock to soft, catchy pop punk songs. However, is this such a bad thing? Yes. Yes, it is quite a bad thing. This album is swamped in an overwhelming "averageness" (sic) which stems from the fact that, for some reason, Green Day started to write songs that didn't draw from their own experience but instead focused on 'angsty' teenage love. Maybe because they’re actually all very successful 40 year olds who haven’t experienced this sort of thing in a while, it comes across as bland and just false, making for an overall disappointing album.

People say that socks are lame Christmas or Birthday presents.
I actually disagree. Yes, there are better presents, but, and I can’t be the only person – my socks are literally covered in holes. Sometimes there’s more hole than actual sock, most pairs have huge gaps in the soles I could potentially fall out of and hurt myself. So yes, when I see a group of freshly unwrapped socks with no holes in them whatsoever, I feel pretty happy with it.
But there is one type of sock that I loathe as much as any one man can possibly loathe a sock.
This type of sock is the type of sock with the day on it.
