Unsolicited Haiku Reviews Of Das Racist, Charred Walls Of The Damned, Anthrax

Das Racist – Relax

Joke rappers grow up?
Just enough to bore at times
Party’s still hype, though.

Charred Walls of the Damned – Cold Winds on Timeless Days

Clenched anus metal
Could be lost “Metroid” soundtrack
Drums are awesome (duh).

Anthrax – Worship Music

Shades of ’88
Band’s tight, Joey B rocks it
Worth a buck or two.

The Most Depressing Thing I Learned This Week

The video for “Bring the Noise” was shot in Chicago, not New York.

Two legendary New York-to-the-bone bands like Anthrax and Public Enemy come together, create this moment of indelible rap metal magic, and they shoot the video in Chicago? Talk about a blow to Big Apple pride. Next thing you’re gonna tell me is Woody Allen shot ninety percent of Manhattan in Vancouver.

Sigh. At least that explains why Chuck D is rocking the Bulls jersey.

Things That Did Not Occur At Last Night’s Big 4 Concert At Yankee Stadium

– John Bush did not magically appear onstage during the Anthrax set to perform a deep cut from Stomp 442

– Dave Mustaine did not make any politically misguided statements about Ireland

– Megadeth did not pull out a nine minute cover of R.E.M.’s “Shiny Happy People”

– Kerry King (pictured) did not wear assless chaps

– Metallica did not invite Dave Mustaine onstage during their set to publicly apologize for stealing all those songs from him back in the day

– Slayer did not use black magic to summon the ghost of Mickey Mantle for an unexpected encore of “Haunting the Chapel”

So, in short, the bands all played it maddeningly safe, even though the vast majority will probably never play a venue as esteemed as Yankee Stadium again. C’mon, Anthrax, you could have at least brought Darryl Strawberry onstage for the angriest version of “Bring the Noise” ever performed by a World Series champ.

Glad I didn’t drop any clams to see this.
