RIGHT BACK TO SCHOOL!
It never fails me
...making a good non nu-metal album and then adding on a shit rapcrapmetal song to the end to try to make it sell
great tune. not a mistake at all
but I suppose that only makes things worse from your point of view
but then the record company said 'hey why no rap rap? why no heavy riff?' and they made back to school and put re-released the album.
sentence sounded retardo but you get the drift
I don't have any 'STUPID RE-RELEASED ALBUM WITH BONUS MATERIAL, I HATE YOU!!!11!' anger left. I've been hurt too many times.
But yeah, virtually everything else they have ever done is better than Back To School.
its now the first song on the album
Well, that really is infuriating. Even more so than when a bonus track is added after a perfect closing track.
it's on the UK pressings, just the US ones. it came here on an EP that had loads of actually-good b-sides.
that ep is aceness
why this is news to me. I doubt my copy of White Pony is an initial pressing.
it is numberrrred an' evryfink
hey if we put that on the re-release itll sell way more records. its not like deftones ever had problems in that area.
ill finsih this converstation with myself.
Well, not as well as Maverick thought they could, considering how many records their, ahem, "peers" were shifting circa 1999
but nothing else of theirs has come close to that. They sell well and steadily, but given how much Korn, Limp Bizkit, Linkin Park etc were selling at the time, the label were (reportedly) not overly impressed.
i used to be quite taken by them at first and when they supported deftones at docklands they were awesome! that was the extent of my love for linkin park.
they were first on wernt they? i remember trying to get to the front through the pit which was essentailly a hell of a lot of people swaying uncontrollably with their feet planted. very annoying.
comapred to linkin park and deftones.
shittest gigs I have ever been to. Deftones were alright, but everyone else was guff!
at the time...influx of hip numetal bands who mostly failed, but at the time some of the older bands on the scene were a bit worried...thus you have deftones doing this, machinehead rapping, etc
rarely that strong
sold about 1m.
the worst mistake they ever made was Pink Cellphone. have you heard it? it's about six minutes of Annie Hardy talking about bum sex and how the english are dirty because they have foreskins over some uninteresting beats. it's ABSOLUTELY HORRIBLE.
both these reasons have put me off listening to them. silly people.
The song is brilliant. The last minute and a half should have been cut.
into a "boo! sellouts!" thread >:(
so grab a note book and a pen
in the right place.
