I’ve always been a fan of “The Simpsons.” Even though cartoons are usually for nerds (and no I don’t have a problem with nerds, I’m just not one!) I definitely connected with Bart Simpson growing up. That dude is a little bad ass.
My biggest problem with “The Simpsons” is they rarely give metal any respect. That show has had a ton of musical guests over the years but there’s been a suspicious lack of headbangers.
They once featured Ozzy but he didn’t supply his own voice! Metallica finally showed up in season 18, so I’ll give them that.
But I wanted more!
Seven years later and my prayers have been answered. Sort of. Judas Priest appeared on the show last night but the writers kinda made a mockery of the band. Instead of singing the normal kick ass lyrics to “Breaking the Law,” Rob Halford was forced to say “Respecting the law! Copyright law!”
They also had a character refer to Priest as death metal, and as much I’m a fan of death metal and a fan of Priest, Priest is not death metal. Do some research!
You need to step you your metal game, Simpsons. I don’t care if I have to wait another seven years, let’s get some Slayer, Megadeath, anything metal! It’s what Bart would want.
