Extenuating the extenuating curcumstances

Heavy metal fruitloop, Roger, gets government benefits because listening to heavy metal music is a handicap. By golly, someone might discriminate against a guy who intentionally makes himself look like a demented clown - at 46 years of age.

True, Gene Simmons and Ozzy Osbourne still do this but they are, you know, successful at doing what they do - actual rockers as opposed to fanboi wannabes. And, yeah, this cat's a real fanboi wannabe. He admits to playing in two bands (in a friend's parent's garage, no doubt) and still needs a handout.

The last quote is pure brilliance: "Some might say that I should grow up and learn to listen to other types of music but I can't. Heavy metal is my lifestyle." Some might say you should just grow up (period). But this is Sweden we're talking about.


Edit: Get Off This by Cracker.
