(Jehosheba, this is to get back at you for the picture of me sleeping on the plane)
Skillet is a band that my sister became obsessed with. *ahem* You can guess (from the title of this post) that I really dislike the band.
Reason #1: All of Skillet sounds very angry
I hear their music playing in the background and it is all anger! UGH! I don’t mind SOME anger in music, because anger is a part of life, but they are overboard.
Reason #2: All I hear is pounding metal
Seriously. The only thing that drowns out the yelling of their voices is the awful banging noises of metal being slammed into metal. *shivers*
Reason #3: The lyrics are full of anger
They’re basically angry with the world and they make that very clear in their songs. When they’re not so angry, they are hopeless and very miserable.
Reason #4: They are literally scream-singing
*shakes head* There are a few songs where they DO actually scream. But, on the whole, the way they sing really just sounds like screaming. And I can hardly understand what they’re saying because they’re SCREAMING IT.
Reason #5: They have really ugly voices *no offense intended*
The main singer’s voice is SO angry when he sings. I really can’t stand his voice….although, it really fits the music well. UGGGGGGGH. (I am sort of intrigued by the way he can scream for so long, though….if it was me, my voice would get hoarse very quickly….)
Have you heard Skillet? What are some bands you can’t stand?
