Parody Song Title:

"That Throne"

Parody Written by:

Red Ant

The Lyrics

Being sick for nearly 3 weeks and listening to some AIC you come up with ( besides vomit ) some interesting alternate lyrics to your favorite songs.
I
I
I
Iiiiiiiiii

I believe that seats for me
French say to use a bidet

I feel sick at home
Gonna take a seat on this throne

I
I
Iiiiiiiii

Empty, my bowels are relieved
Bowls hate the gifts they receive

I feel sick at home
Gonna take a seat on this throne
( solo of farting, flushing and some "air guitar"!! )

#2, that's what I did do
Flushed away, get on with my day

I feel sick at home
Gonna take a seat on this throne
( repeat 3x---or more if you're really sick as I was!!)

Hey, man, thanks for your comments on Power of Smoke. If only that 1/10th of that 1% stopped. Now about this parody...FUNNY!! I enjoy AIC and I can relate about being sick! This parody is gross, twisted, but yet so funny...I like it!!
Red Ant - March 01, 2005 - Report this comment
I too enjoy AIC, and when I did a search here I noticed almost no AIC parodies, probably because 1. People hate/never listen to AIC or 2. Most AIC songs are written so well that they can't be improved upon. Most of the parodies I've wriiten are mostly depressing, gross, politically incorrect, and occasionally funny as hell. But there's on thing in common with all my parodies--they speak the truth--and most people would rather be lied to than hear the truth.
Scrawny Johnny - March 02, 2005 - Report this comment
Yeah, AIC parodies are difficult to produce. I've been pondering about a parody of the song "Rooster", but nothing is really coming together right for it to sound good. Hey, gross and politically incorrect (and even toilet humor) parodies I think are great. I know what you mean about people wanting to be lied to...just watch commercials. Does anybody EVER read the fine print? Of course not, because it's easier to believe what they're told rather than learning about the whole deal. Hey, keep up the good work! It's good to see some rock/metal parodies sometimes (like AIC)!
Red Ant - March 02, 2005 - Report this comment
I have currently 4 or 5 AIC parodies, and tomorow or the next day I will have 2 Nirvana parodies, and already have a Queensryche parody out. Also just got done with a extremely disturbed parody of Eminems' My Name Is...I see the time of this post haha I couldn't sleep much today, making these parodies is more addictive than sex and drugs!! Sorry, don't know how to link them, but just search though the last two weeks submissions, I only started like 10 days ago and have about 12-15 parodies out there. Also if you want to know true depression see my parody on Nine Inch Nail "The One Thing I Can Never Have"

Hehe, just came up with a great paody of "Rooster"!! You got me thinking about it, so in 15 minutes it was finished. You will have to wait and see what it's about when it gets posted. I promise you it's good, the pacing isn't perfect, but judging from my other AIC parodies no one but you will notice anyway.
Scrawny Johnny - March 02, 2005 - Report this comment
15 minutes was all it took to write a parody for "Rooster?" Man, that's quick! Usually my parodies take about almost a month. The quickest parody I ever wrote (which I will release soon) took only 5 days. Well, my idea for "Rooster" was going to be something about the restaurant Hooters and their Hot Wings. Like I said, it's not coming together right and I have better parodies that require my full attention.
Red Ant - March 03, 2005 - Report this comment
Yeah, I can bang them out pretty quick sometimes, but I think I have met 2 REALLY difficult challenges. Anything by Soundgarden and the song "Locomotive" by GNR. I downloaded the lyrics and holy shit it's long!! But I'm going to work on it, will be another movie parody, but it will take atleast 2 days to write it, not including the 7 hours worth of movies I need to watch again to make it work. By the way I started writing my own music since I was 13, and most of what I wrote was in 99 when I was making a shitload of money ( for me anyway), but was the most miserable I have ever been

Hey, not to be way off subject, but have you noticed that for the past few days, we have been directing ourselves back to this parody? It's kind of funny! Someday, someone is going to look for a parody of "Them Bones" and find all these interesting conversations. Oh well, I've seen longer ones on other parodies. Anyways, I like GnR and I'm currently expanding my GnR collection. Sadly, I have never heard of Locomotive, but it won't be long until I do. Yeah, most of my parodies were written in 2003 (these parodies I call the "Swallow the Leader" album) and early to mid 2004 (which are being called "Master of Grilling" album). I'm strange like that, arranging groups of parodies into their own "album." So whenever I submit a parody, usually that parody is about 3 to 5 months old.
Red Ant - March 03, 2005 - Report this comment
Yeah, I keep coming back here for 2 reasons, one to see if anyone rated/liked it and two, to talk to chat with you. Locomotive is a VERY long song with like 12 long stanzas and has a run time of almost 9 MINUTES! I like your comments alot, but man there is so much out there more than Metallica ( although I have 6 of their CD's, second only to 9 AIC CD's ( have a few bootlegs/special releases). Locomotive is like the 11th song or so on Use Your Illusion 1 ( I think ), and once you hear it you will know what I mean on how very difficult it will be to pace it, make it funny or witty, etc. But get them both, I listened to the tapes so much they eventually broke, and then got CD's scratched so bad I needed to replace them too! Yeah, GNR got a 6 for one deal on me and alot of the songs on those two CD's are very mediocre, but locomotive is probably the most difficult to parody. I wish there was a voting category for "difficulty", like in the Olympics, as some songs can be parodied very easy ( I made 2 versions of Hi, My Name is...Slim Shady by Eminem in like 3 days and about 2 hours time). Locomotive parody sadly will not be reviewed by more than 2 people because its almost 15 years old, it was too long a song to get regular airplay on the radio, and alot of people seem to dislike GNR. Oh well, their loss, BTW see my parody of Kashmir, a song that was very popular at the time and sttil is today, that pacing was very tough too.
Scrawny Johnny - March 04, 2005 - Report this comment
Yeah, I know there's more than just Metallica. I'm very fond of Megadeth, AIC (of course), Nirvana, Pantera, GnR, Godsmack, Judas Priest, AC/DC, White/Rob Zombie, Van Halen, Rush, Ted Nugent, Motley Crue, Scorpions, Def Leppard, a little bit of KoRn, and the list goes on and on... like I said, I'm slowly but surely expanding my music collection. Which reminds me, we both like AIC, but have you heard of Mad Season??
Red Ant - March 04, 2005 - Report this comment
I'm fond of Megadeth too, have 3 or 4 of their CD's, and have atleast one CD of most of the bands you listen to. Do I know Mad Season? ARE YOU KIDDING ME? Off the top of my head( not looking at any lyrics right now a swear). River of Deceit: My pain is self chosen, atleast so the prophet says, I could either burn, or cut off my pride and buy some time...next. So much blood I'm starting to drown, runs from cold to colder, time and time the sky's coming down to help me lose my way. Fear and lies for answers, you and open veins. God knows I'm gone...See you all from time to time, isn't it so strange how far away we are all now? Am I the only one who remembers that summer? Yeah, you could say I have that CD. I do admit there are a few songs on their that are sub par, but I do not have a single CD where I like ALL of the songs, but Dirt is the closest at 12 of 13, only Irongland sucks, but I understand they were all just screwing around, so DIRT is probably the closest to perfect CD ever made % wise of songs I like. Which reminds me: Did you know that GodSmack is named after an AIC song? That is the absolute truth, even Sully Erna has admitted it.
Scrawny Johnny - March 05, 2005 - Report this comment
Well, I was just wondering if you knew...a lot of people tend to forget that after AIC, Layne Staley started Mad Season. Hardly anyone remembers or even knows! And yes, I knew that Godsmack was named after the AIC song! Amazingly, I knew that even before I started listening to AIC or Godsmack, but I don't remember where I learned that from...anyways, River of Deceit is an awesome song. Y'know, you oughta write a parody of RIver of Deceit. Heck, if you can write one for "Rooster", River of Deceit shouldn't be too hard. I haven't checked, but I don't think there are many, if not any, Mad Season parodies. Which reminds me, no one has submitted a parody of a Bloodrock song, yet. I'm currently writing a parody of D.O.A., a morbid song very few remember.
Red Ant - March 05, 2005 - Report this comment
I don't think I can parody River of Deceit well, as most if all of my parodies are partially based on myself, that particular song ( and so many of AIC's songs) describe my feelings at that time of my life accurately. I haven't heard of Bloodrock, but I assume D.O.A. stands for dead on arrival, so I will check it out anyway. By the way, lets see how long we can keep this thread going! Set a new and completely useless record( I can see it now: 2009 Guinness Book of World Records-Longest Chat Exchange between two parodist over one parody) hehe.
Scrawny Johnny - March 06, 2005 - Report this comment
Very few people remember the once jazz/rock band called Bloodrock. D.O.A. was a very chilling song with no beat, only morbid vocals and a synthesizer that sounded like a ambulance. The story expressed in the song is from the view of a victim involved in a tragic plane crash who is now lying on the ground slowly and painfully dying away. So morbid you can't help but listen to it. Weirdly enough, D.O.A. was their ONLY hit (climbed into the Top 40 in 1971). When I release the parody I have of it, I hope many visitors will remember the song well enough to enjoy the parody. As far as that record, I'll keep responding as long as you keep listening and vice versa. It's refreshing to communicate with another parody artist who enjoys rock/metal as well as poking fun at it.
Red Ant - March 06, 2005 - Report this comment
Wow, I thought Bloodrock was like an underground or much newer band. Kind of suprised you know this song since most of what you listed you have is atleast 15+ years newer. I'm going to download the lyrics and see the original and try to find a copy if possible ( which I don't think will happen ). I haven't searched for them yet, but I suspect few to no submissions on that song, so you can set a new record as being the first ever to parody not only a song, but a whole band! Anyway, keep 'em coming, I wrote 2 new ones yesterday, one is funny as hell and the other I'm sure will create a firestorm when they see the subtitle of the parody name. By the way, "Locomotive" is track 9 on Use Your Illusion 2, not 11 on one as I said before. I'm working on a parody of "Estranged", which is track 11 UYI 2 and runs nearly 9 1/2 minutes but I think will be a hell of alot easier than Locomotive.

Hey, wait, I made a parody! ( Little Nirvana joke there ) It's been done before, AIC's man in the box, except mines about annoying children in restaurants and how I feel about them. Probably see it monday.
Red Ant - March 07, 2005 - Report this comment
Hey SJ, I just thought of a new parody almost exclusively with you in mind. It's a Metallica parody that has never been done before, and its an 8+ minute long song that makes a parody of Locomotive look pathetically easy in comparison. Sorry I can't go into it more, but I'm sure you have the CD, and when you see the title, it will blow you away. Another little hint: make sure you have Ride The Lightning and Master of Puppets handy. Wont be out for a while.

Sorry I haven't responded in a while...college projects beckoned. But now they are done and I am able to relax! About Bloodrock, they started in the late 60's and dissolved away by late 70's. D.O.A. is arguably their ONLY remembered song. EXTREMELY DIFFICULT to find (at least for me it was). Bloodrock albums are a rare gem to find, but fortunately, I was able to copy D.O.A. from a friend. Good luck finding it! This new Metallica parody...is it "Master Of Puppets?" If so, I already have a submitted parody of it. It's one my personal favs! Check out "Parody Authors" and look for my name around the "20-21 parodies submitted" area. My parody of "Master Of Puppets" is called "Master Of Grilling." The only other songs that are 8+ minutes from either RtL or MoP is "Orion" and "Call of Ktulu." So, it has to be Master, right? Anyways, sorry I haven't responded in a few days. I'm back on track now that Spring Break is underway.
Red Ant - March 09, 2005 - Report this comment
No Johnny, its not "Master of puppets", guess that leaves only Orion and The Call of Ktulu huh ( which are both instrumentals). Hehe, like I said it would make Locomotive """PATHETICALLY""" easy to parody. And its going to take I would guess atleast 90 real life hours to work. Yes, I'm going to parody an instrumental, probably a first, and if you listen to the two you will probably guess wrong on which I'm going to do. Shhhh...don't let anyone know, like I said it will take a while, and I don't want some douche ripping off my idea.
Scrawny Johnny - March 09, 2005 - Report this comment
Really? An instrumental? How exactly can you parody that? Though I am confused, I am curious of how it will turn out. Well, I'll just wait until its submitted to find out. I wish you the best of luck! I just read "Estranged"...very sad. I can relate since I have family members that have past on. I didn't lose them to Alzheimers (if that's how it's spelled), but instead to cancer. Not only that, but every Sunday, I visit my grandmother who is slowly dying, not from cancer, but from a variety of complications caused by 40 years of persistent smoking (remember my parody?). She finally quit a year ago, but it might be too late. Because of that, I am a strongly against smoking and try my best without being annoying by trying to get folks to stop (hence my parody again).
Red Ant - March 09, 2005 - Report this comment
Well I'll give you one last clue: while guitar sounds are PRACTICALLY impossible to put into words, drum sounds ( with very very few exceptions) ARE IMPOSSIBLE to put into words. So that Kinda rules out "Orion" doesn't it? So yes, I'm going to make a parody of "The Call of Ktulu". I have never heard this live ( maybe you have), and has 2 if not 3 guitars oversampled/dubbed. Why am I doing this? Because 1) It will be the hardest parody ever written by a mile. 2) I dont think anyone has ever thought of parodieng an instrumental. 3) Lets say that all music and all way to produce and communicate it are lost and all you have is text?? Thats what I'm going to try to do. There are SEVERE problems with this, as I'm sure you know even sheet music/tablature wont help, the only way is to listen to the song in about 1-2 second intervals, revise to the power of infinity, then write it all down.. Like I said, will likely be the hardest parody ever written EVER, Im estimating now closer to 200+ real life hours to make this work. And even you will need to listen to the CD as you read the ""words""..........................it'll be a few weeks....but check back and I'll do the same, by the way ad this page to yor favorites list as it will soon go off out of the recent submissions...

Well, then, I wish you great luck! It will be very interesting to hear! Maybe you can win parody of the month for it, being that it will be the most challenging, most difficult, and definitely the most time-consuming parody ever!! I'll admit it, this is something I'm positive I would never do, and probably neither would anyone else. I have heard a live version of "Call of Ktulu," but they never played it in concert when I went. I'll keep checking to see when it is put up. Again, good luck...and good patience, cause you're gonna need that!
Red Ant - March 09, 2005 - Report this comment
Patience is my biggest personal flaw by far, and trying to parody an 8:52 Instrumental ( which was my first choice BTW ) will make it all the harder. By the way, did they use 2 or 3 guitars? I swear its only 2, but my friend says 3 and he majored in music in college, but I think he's still wrong. Also I will set I'm sure I new amiright.com record for longest foreword into a parody as well as the hardest parody ever made EVER IN RECORDED HUMAN HISTORY. Not to be vain, but people with 200+ posts with few exceptions do mostly really easy stuff like the Beatles. Just in case you were wondering what my other picks were this was 1, orion was 2, woodpecker from mars was 3 4 was beat box ( the art of noise, 1984 too same as TCOK ), ( ruled out "eruption" from van halen as that is a solo, not an instrumental. Now I could have picked something """RELATIVELY""" easy that most know and like like Mason Williams " Classical Gas " or the them song from Midnight Cowboy ( 1969 movie, never seen it, but its the last track on Faith No More's Angel Dust CD ), or benn really lame and done like pink panther them song or william tell overture. But If Im going to parody an instrumental I'm going all out on difficulty, and I will be the first to rate in 555 for difficulty and effort. Now you just read about 1/3 ( yes theres so much more that needs to be said ) of my opening intro. Like I said, wont be out for a while, although I'm working on a version of War Pigs from Black Sabbath, but havent got it all together. Now remember shhhh... like I said before, I don't want some douche ripping off my idea.
Scrawny Johnny - March 10, 2005 - Report this comment
I won't say anything.But I think you'll be safe...like I said, I don't think anybody else will or can do what you are trying to accomplish. As far as "Call of Ktulu" having 2 or 3 guitars, it would have to be 2 plus one bass. Think about it, Kirk Hammett plays the guitar, James Hetfield also plays guitar, and Cliff Burton plays the bass (and we all know what Lars specializes in doing). I do know that Dave Mustaine helped in writing...I repeat...WRITING some of the lyrics on many songs found on Ride the Lightning, but he never played. I could be wrong about the number guitars, but I just don't see who else who be playing guitar without it being accredited. I guess Cliff could play, but then who would be performing bass? To conclude, I believe it's fascinatingly done with only 2 guitars, unless your friend can provide proof that there are 3 guitars being used.

I am sadly probably never coming back here again so it is a moot point, The Call of Ktulu will never be seen here, and I suggest strongly you look over the next few days for a new submission from me regarding the South Park movie.......

Uh-oh..."moot point?" Did you lose in court, or is this "moot point" not about that topic? Well, if this is the court thing, and you lost, I'm sorry to hear that. I hope that everything goes well for you (as best as it possibly can). I enjoyed continuing this thread for as long as possible, but like all things, it must end. So, good friend, take care and if you ever can, feel free to stop by here and chat. I think I'm gonna be here for a long time. Anyways, take care, and I hope I didn't make a complete fool of myself If this has nothing to do with the court issue. I don't know, so I am assuming. On a final note, I'll go check out Faith No More since you mentioned it to me...

No SJ, I havent gone to court yet, but im not going to spend all of that time on that one since probably so few people will understand it anyway, and I have pissed off so many people here and so many people sanbag with 111 that I am sick of it all. Offender was right all along, the rating sytem here is worthless. BTW, that parody of Rape me I did , I KNEW that I wouldnt set the record, I was trying to legally cheat the rating system, as it should have been rated on its own merit, despite EVERTHING else, as all parodies should be. I knew that some ( like you would grant me my wish ), but IMO it should have been rated a 254 at best ( possibly a 255).

Oh...well, then I feel kind of like a fool. Here I thought it was end of the line, but...yeah, I understand the 111 thing. Voting can be a ridiculous privilege especially since it is abused by so many (as tactics for revenge, for favoritism, or whatever...). I personally enjoy comments over voting. But above all, I submit parodies because I like seeing my work published for free on a place where anybody can come and see them. It's unfortunate to hear that people give parodies 111 only because they carry on a grudge. Or to ruin a string of 555. Well, if you are not going to submit anymore, then at least come by and check out what's been written. Like I mentioned before...I think I'll be here for a long time...

BTW SJ, I have several new ideas I am working on, and that South Park thing got canned as I knew it would.

Make sure you add this to your Favorites file folder before it gets pushed out of the top two weeks.

PS--I forgot that I had another instrumental in my collection that would make TCOK """"PATHETICALLY""""" easy in comparison. It's over 13 minutes long....so if I can do it ( asking permission before I do all that work as it is a "song" but doen't have any words, it may not qualify as a parody). I'm guessing THAT one would take probably 500+ hours to put together easily. Also would probably set a new record for parody masochism with that as well.

Man, sorry I haven't been around awhile...the middle of March, everyone is having birthdays. Last weekend alone was three birthdays alone and this upcoming weekend is three more...it's exhausting! I don't think I can eat any more cake...and I LOVE cake!! But it's refreshing to be here again. I can't think of what that instrumental would be, but whenever it's submitted, I'll take a look. Hey, any luck yet about finding that Bloodrock song? I have some coincidental news about them that completely took me by surprise Saturday...let's just say I got to experience an event that only comes around once in a lifetime (well, for someone like me...)
Red Ant - March 16, 2005 - Report this comment
Good to hear from you, I have several ideas on the drawing board right now. That instrumental is more of a solo but does have some bass and drums, so it qualifies. I'm still waiting for a response from Chuck G if I can do it. Haven't searched for TOS ( DOA ) lyrics yet, and my music friend doesn't have a copy, once I see it submitted I will get the lyrics then. I listened to TCOK again and only heard 2 guitars and no bass, but I may be wrong ( doubt Cliff would have sat that out ). Will have ANOTHER AIC parody out tomorrow, one that is very difficult to pace because of it's intentional missryhming words, but its funny ( to me anyway ). Even I as a die hard AIC fan had to listen to that song atleast 5 times to get what I thought was good.

PS- Got permission to do that parody, but it may be a fairly long time before its out. PSS--You REALLY need to get EPIC and ANGEL DUST CD's from Faith No More, you can get them both for probably 20 bucks. LOL, just saw VH1's one hit wonders and FNM song "epic" from the EPIC CD was their only "hit". Of course Jimi Hendrix only had one hit as well " All Along the Watchtower", but we all know how good he was.
Scrawny Johnny - March 18, 2005 - Report this comment
You were watching that same show? So was I! Yeah, I saw "Epic" by Faith No More, and you know what? I've heard that song before, and actually like it! So I will definitely check out some more of their stuff. I was also surprised that Hendrix's "Purple Haze" wasn't a hit (even though it seems everyone knows him by that only song...). "Tainted Love" and the "Macarena" rounded out the top two (I don't remember who was in third). When they talked about Sir Mix-A-Lot's "Baby Got Back" song, it inspired me to do a parody of it. Of course, it will be a long while before I even begin working on it since I still have about 10-11 parodies I still need to complete.
Red Ant - March 18, 2005 - Report this comment
Yeah, after watching that show I had contemplated for about 3 femtoseconds ( 1 x 10-15 power ) about doing one hit wonder parodies, but scratched that idea. I'm working on several new ideas though, and will probably see a few more by Wednesday or so.

Yet again, sorry I'm late...things just keep occuring and it's taking a lot of time. The birthdays are over, spring break is over, and it's back to college again. I've noticed that within my abscence, you've amassed quite a number of parodies. I'm going to have to go check some of those out. As for my parodies, I'm probably going to release another one maybe this weekend, so be on the lookout. On another note, I was listening to Weird Al last night, and it helped me realize that I need to write better when I am creating my parodies. I've noticed that my more recent parodies (the ones I have not submitted yet, but will soon..) seem to be a little forced, and I would like to correct that so they will be more at a relaxed and comfortable style. As for the one hit wonder parodies, how about the Macarena? Or In-Da-Gadda-Da-Vida? Nah, just kidding, but that would be awesome if someone pulled that off successfully, especially the macarena. Just a random thought...am I the only one who dislikes the Macarena and Baha men's "Who Let The Dogs Out?" Everyone I know likes these two songs and it drives me insane.

Good to hear from you SJ--check out my on the author list, Im like 41 parodies now, including atleast 11 AIC parodies. I saw your parodies (most of them ) and they were very very good, reflected by the high marks you got. There is a parody of Macarena called Masturbata that is hilarious, will never be topped. The worst song for me is the song " It's a Small World", see my parody of it. Who let the dogs out I couldn't even listen to, because if I can't understand the lyrics ( or they make no sense ) then I change the station. IAGDV has been done in the last few days, while its an 18 minute song, it has like 3 minutes of vocals and I would never parody it. Anyway, check out those AIC parodies, get Facelift and Dirt handy. :)

Yeah, I've noticed how you are steadily climbing up the list...eventually, you'll crack into the the top-ten list, receiving massive amounts of votes like all the other parody-artists up there. Thanks for the compliments on my parodies...I'll admit that some of my parodies are not fantastic, but there are some in there I'm really proud of. I already have Facelift and Dirt handy...in fact, I have all AIC songs. Started collecting there music in May of last year. Currently, I am working on finishing my AC/DC collection. So far, I only Back In Black, but I am looking for The Razor's Edge. Contains my fav AC/DC song- "Thunderstruck." By the way, I checked out your parody of California Dreamin'. Excellent parody!

There are maybe out of the almost 400 listed maybe 20 that have better overalls than you ( without vote inflation ). Check me out, I now have like 14 AIC parodies, just made a parody of "What The Hell Have I?" off of the Last Action Hero Soundtrack ( may be in Music Bank as well ). PS- I knew that was a pun!. :)

Well thank you on the compliments about my parodies! I will release another tomorrow so be on the lookout...it's a parody that I'm sure it will be quite funny! I noticed your "What The Hell Have I" parody and your Megadeth one. Since Megadeth is rarely parodied, I salute you! However, since most of the people on this site hardly listen to Megadeth, I'm sure you understand most people aren't going to vote on that one. Well, actually, maybe they will since it deals with a current event. On another note, I'm content knowing that someone else agrees with me about how the toilet-humor parody complaints are normally nonsensical. I grew up with toilet-humor, so I'm not ashamed. Nature is funny, and natural acts can be funny to talk about (as long as they don't go overboard). But it never ceases to amaze me that a harmless parody that mentions the word fart, turd, or sometimes burp will offend somebody, but they choose to read anyway. But it's whatever...they have freedom of speech...

Yeah, toliet humor doesn't really bother me either ( used to work at a wasterwater plant ). Just wish people would not vote it 111 when 9 other people say its paced perfectly ( I'd setttle for a 511 ). I'll look for your parody tomorrow or the next day. PS- I made a parody of Sledgehammer ( Peter Gabriel ) called Jackhammer, and ANOTHER AIC parody of " I Stay Away " called " Please Stay Away ". Working on several more FNM parodies. Also, got a parody rejected on GNR You could be mind called You should be blind about the myth that j****** o** causes blindness. Might post it on whatfreaks. Hey, check me out on the list now, I've got a few AIC parodies that I havent seen you on yet, like Love, Hate, Love, Dam That River, Sunshine, Would? and a few more.PS- On that last one, read the comment I made before you vote ( if you havent already, no comments other that my own )

Yeah, I'll go check out your AIC stuff...as for my parody, look for it Monday. I just noticed that Friday's parodies are still up, and if I submit my parody now, it'll just get weighed down under TONS of parodies written Friday and today. Usually when that happens, some parodies will be ignored since there are too many to read. So even though I said I would submit last night, I'm glad I forgot since the New Entries has not updated yet. Wow, your GnR' parody is the first time I ever heard of a parody being rejected. Read your comments between you and MrMacphisto...it sounds like we might have a 3rd member joining this thread since he seems to share the same love for rock music as we do ( I learned some things about Jerry Cantrell that ya'll were talking about).

Yeah, that parody got rejected, even e-mailed Chuck BEFORE I wrote it, and it had no cursing, foul language etc, just slang terms for , you know. Curious that Spaffs "Pedophilia" was allowed since that is about child rape, and mine would have been about self-service. MrMacphisto seems to like Jerry more, which is understandable, but Layne was AIC in my opinion. PS- I NEED TO PRINT THIS IN CAPS!! GET FAITH NO MORE's THE REAL THING ( 1989 release ) AND ANGEL DUST ( 1992 release ). They are very bizarre, and Mike Patton ( lead singer on those two CD's ) has a better range than Layne does, and their topics go all over the place. I do have the first 3 tracks on ANGEL DUST parodied, and can see atleast 3 more coming. As for THE REAL THING, might do a few off of that as well. As for my parodies, I do have a few records here, notably the most AIC and FNM submissions, and have ouf my 53 or so parodies probably 20 that have NEVER been parodied here before. But sometimes I bang em out quick ( on one day I had 7 submissions alone ), and they are not of your quality ( for the most part ). Anyway, lets keep up this thread, we need a record!! PSS-I understand about your parody , as it would get lost in the mix probably.

Finally submitted that parody I kept talking about. The next time I go to Wal-Mart, I'll check out to see if they have any Faith No More. Hey do you like Boston? Over the weekend, I bought their greatest hits CD and man it's awesome. I'm also still working on my AC/DC collection and then I'll move on to Bloodrock (if I'm lucky enough to find their stuff). I noticed you are climbing higher on the parody author's list. You're cranking 'em out faster than I can think of 'em. I'm almost finished with the parody I'm currently writing (expect it around Jun/July), then I'll be moving on to my next one which will be another Metallica one. But I won't reveal what song. That info I like to keep secret, so it won't ruin the element of surprise.

Good to hear from you. TOTALLY UNEXPECTED song pick, but was great. I'm slowing down a bit, only going to release maybe 2-3 parodies a week now. PS-I have a parody coming from Metallicas FIRST CD, something I made a LONG time ago, but will need serious reworking to fit TOS. I won't say more either. :)

I appreciate the feedback concerning my parody. Your right about it being unexpected... here I listen to rock, metal, grunge, whatever and then pop out with a Mannfred Mann parody. Just a quick anecdote: The concept of that parody is actually a little over 5 years old. I created the "...gonna fail you all" ditty for the amusement of my friends as a way to make fun of our old, somewhat gripy, science teacher, way back in 8th grade. Later, I developed a couple of the key lyrics (re-worded a little differently in the first stanza). But once we hit high-school, with no science to make fun of, the parody idea fell dormant within the back of my mind only to resurface December of last year. Glad to see it be a hit.

I'm not trying to guess, but my gut tells me that this Kill 'em All parody is either going to be Four Horsemen or Seek & Destroy (both of which I heard on Mandatory Metallica tonight). Don't tell me anything; I want to be surprised when you unveil it and see if my gut is right...or wrong.

PS- You can rule out Anesthesia ( Pulling Teeth ) as well, as bass sounds are nearly impossible to put into written words. So we are down to 6 choices. PSS- Already checked, this song has never been parodied here unless someone severely screwed up the decade. Won't be out till maybe next Monday or so ( don't think I can complete it before Thursday, and I don't want it getting lost in the mix ).

Hey lazy!! Get on the site today! j/k. I made a few new parodies, make SURE you look at the 2 submitted today and possible 2 tomorrow ( not sure if one will be accepted ). One is a Metallica parody off of Ride The Lightning, has only been parodied once ( it sucked ) and it's not TCOK. PS--That "song" I was talking about has approx. 4000-5500 "words" in it, lost count after 2600, and it took 13 pages of paper to print it out ( and some was omitted ).

Read the parodies from yesterday...about the tribute one, thanks for mentioning me. It's quite the honor knowing that I'm a helpful influence. About the NASCAR one...ready for Bristol? I have a NASCAR parody I wrote in December and I will release it...mm, possibly June? I don't know, but it's ready, I just got to get my other parodies out of the way ( Like the Linkin Park parody that will be featured sometime next month). Hopefully Junior will be able to stay consistent throughout Sunday's race.

Yeah, I'm slowing down a bit.

Busy weekend...anyway, I'll be sure to look for that worst AIC song parody...I'm sure I know it (I have all their stuff, even some rare demos). Which reminds me, you wrote a parody over AIC's song "Loose Ground." I've never heard of that song. Which album is it from? Wait, excuse me, what BOOTLEG is it from (I know it's not from any of their store-bought albums). I noticed that and I was curious. Oh, about Bristol today, sorry about Ricky...he was involved in a 14-car crash (on the plus side Junior had a top-five for the first time since Daytona). Can't wait 'til they come to MY home track...TEXAS!!!
Red Ant - April 05, 2005 - Report this comment
Sorry for the delay, Scrawny Johnny. That parody " Loose Ground " is actually titled " Brush Away" track 2 off of " Tripod " ( yeah, got the name wrong, but that was like the 3rd parody I submitted here ). That AIC track is so bad even I had to download the lyrics to understand it. Yeah, Ricky did manage a 25th finish. PS- Today is the 3/11 year anniversaries ( but not celebration ) of both Layne Staleys and Kurt Cobains death dates. I have a 4-part AIC tribute album(s) out in the next day or so.
Scrawny Johnny - April 06, 2005 - Report this comment
Read your AIC tribute parodies...no need to repeat all that I said on them...well, one more time...excellent job, those were written exceptionally well! Y'know, I knew K. Cobain died in April, but I never what day, and I really didn't know that Layne died on the same day. Coincidence? I don't know, maybe, maybe not. OK, so Loose Ground is Brush Away...that's right, I remember the lyrics -" Brush away loose ground..." I love the intro to that song. I have another question to challenge your AIC knowledge- Have you heard of Class of '99?
Red Ant - April 08, 2005 - Report this comment
Yeah, Class of 99 was a one time shot with Layne Staley, Tom Morello ( from RATM I think ) and a few others. The video sucked ass, and had like 4 2 second clips of Layne from other videos because he was in too bad a shape to be seen on a video. Did you know that ( AFAIK ) is the only time Pink Floyd had given another band permission to do one of their songs? PS- Tomorrow or the next day I will have a parody of Bohemian Rhapsody out called Powdered Water Rhapsody ( actually 2 versions ) about powdered water!!! Also ( if it gets through ) will have a tribute to the worst rated Amirighter here ( with more than 25 submissions ), set to an equally sucky song.
Scrawny Johnny - April 09, 2005 - Report this comment
Well, I'm impressed. My aunt Leah (the one responsible for getting me into rock/metal back in '03), she claims to know all about AIC, but even she didn't know the Class of '99. That Pink Floyd cover song is on the Faculty soundtrack, and of course, after I had told her all this, she claims to have forgot. Whatever, she didn't know and I could tell. Ever since she got me into rock (believe or not, I used to hate rock music, thinking it was the dumbest form of music polluting the airwaves and CD shelves. whew, fortunately I had a change of heart...), anyways, since she got me into rock, like NASCAR, I've done a lot of researching and amassed quite a bit of rock/metal knowledge. Albeit, I'm still learning, but I like to surprise someone who has been listening to rock music for a much longer period than I have. I read your powered-water parody...see comments on there. I quoted what I thought was the best part of that parody! Oh, on a final note, I will be releasing my Linkin Park parody soon...
Red Ant - April 09, 2005 - Report this comment
Cool deal on the Linkin Park parody. I have 2 coming out tomorrow ( hopefully, one is so drug referenced it may not fly, but has no sexual/curse words in it ) of the same song. The titles are " Arylcyclohexamines" and " Purely Psychological ". Can you guess TOS? PS- Did you also know that Layne drew the " sun " on the inside of the DIRT CD, as well as the pen-in-ink drawings on Mad Season's CD? I want a tattoo of that sun logo, probably cost $350 bucks ( which I can't afford right now ). Notes: Your aunt Leah is very cool. The first time I heard ( saw the video ) of Man In The Box, I hated it!! I didn't get into AIC until early '94, and was extremely disappointed when I went to the Metallica concert in Tampa that summer for my birthday present to find AIC pulled out ( and was ready to kill James Hetfield in front of 70,000+ people for mocking AIC ).

No, you must be corrected...my aunt Leah is 20 years old (I know, it's weird, one of those step-family things, I can't explain...) anyways, she is not cool. She has a lot of immaturity and will say demeaning comments about you when she is around your friends to make herself look good. I don't like that and I finally got in her face to tell her to stop or I will lay all her s--- bare. Yes, she got me into rock music, but she only likes anti-social nu-metal and just weird rock junk. Plus, she acts like she knows everything about rock (hence the Class of 99 story) and seriously, she takes every joke...EVERY joke literally. You have to tell her its a joke and even then, she tries to make look like she knew that and you're just stupid. And yet surprisingly, I can tolerate her. She has gotten better, but every now and then, she acts like a 13 year old. Well, now that I got all that pent-up frustration off my chest, I feel better. Sadly, I do not have an *official* Dirt CD, just a burned copy from my giant Music-Library friend. He has LOTS of CDs and we share music (mostly he's doing the sharing). Mr. Hetfield mocking AIC?? hmmm...that sounds just like how Green Day branded grunge bands (directed mostly to Nirvana and AIC) as "showoff, arena bands, who were not really there to make music." Of course, this was on TV so all I could say was "HOW DARE YOU!!!"

Well, Leah's not that bad...she has toned down (some...). Anyways, my Linkin Park parody will be released probably Friday. That's when I'll be leaving for Austin. I am taking a much needed mini-vacation from all the college projects. Besides, there is a female-friend I'm trying to get to know better and she said she could show me around Austin since that is her home town (mine is Dallas). Speaking about Friday, I will be seeing Quiet Riot for FREE in Ft. Worth as part of a celebration of NASCAR's return to TEXAS (which will be twice this year...yay!). Every year, the city has a giant NASCAR interactive festival as a celebration, and best of all, it's free! So, I will submit the parody, go have fun, and then check on it Sunday night when I return from Austin. I can understand your parody-drainage...for me it's not thinking them up, it's trying to write humorous lines about the subject of the parody (I'll let you on a little secret...I'm writing a Sheryl Crow parody about SpongeBob and so far, it's half done, but for a week, I could not think of a suitable stanza that was witty or clever...when it's done, expect it around...mm, July maybe. I like to wait before releasing a parody). Oh, congrats on Ricky for a 7th place finish (poor Jr. mustered an acceptable 13th). Last night, I watched that Some Kind Of Monster, and I must say, that was a great movie! I used to not be that fond of St. Anger, but after watching that documentary, I listened to it with newfound respect and acceptance. In fact, it inspired a new parody. But it'll have to wait, as I still have 6 ideas waiting to BE written. Well, I could sit here all night typing everything that is flowing thru my tired brain right now, but I better head off to bed...got more projects to turn in. Anyways, thanks for your compliments on Joey's "Master of Muppets" parody (honestly that was the lowest score I've ever voted on a Metallica parody). I'll keep checkin' back here and responding whenever I can, b/c after all, we still have a useless record to maintain of the longest useless parody thread. Until next time crimson insect....

On a quick note...in some of your comments on parodies, you've mentioned Florida or Tampa. I guess it's safe to say you live in Florida, right? If that's affirmative, then have you ever been to Daytona?

Anyway, I'll keep this short: Have fun on your vacation. Yeah, that Metallica parody was not great. Finally, I submitted a parody of " Rape Me " called " Date Rape " which may not get through because it is somewhat sexual. The foreword to the parody is over twice the length of the song. In case it doesn't get submitted, it's basically how I DESPISE rapists. Chat with you later. I would set up a PM on inthe00s.com or give my e-mail out, but someone would get ahold of it and spam me to death probably ( besides, I hate reading e-mails and we need to keep this record going ) !!

Oh well, it's out there now, take a look at it if you can and leave a comment. People would rather read George Hamilinton IV's crap parodies than something serious.

Sorry it took so long again...EXTREMELY, yet EXCITINGLY BUSY weekend. Before I tell everything, I would like to thank you for the extra attention you gave to some of my old parodies; they needed a new visitor! Ok, where to begin...ohright, Linkin Park parody. I know I said I'd release Friday, but as usual, I forgot. Now, I can't submit it until tomorrow night (since Friday's parodies are STILL UP and just think of all the parodies written Friday, Sat, today, all compiled into one big, tangled mess of satire tomorrow. un-uh. The last couple I submitted parodies that were trapped in a flood hardly received any attention (which is understandable due to the overwhelming amount a frequent visitor would have to read). So anyways, I'll have that out as soon as possible. The Sheryl Crow parody is two chorus' away from being finished, so expect that in May. Ok, now on to Friday...my city library was having a booksale and I decided to check out. Lo and behold, that were selling CD's and cassettes for only a buck. I happen to come across a cassette bearing the title "FAITH NO MORE: THE REAL THING." Remembering about your suggestion to check them out, I bought the $1 tape to see if I'd like it and if I do, I go after the CD. Well, it looks like I'll be adding a new band to my always-growing CD Library called Faith No More. Y'know, they sound kind of like Smashing Pumpkins mixed with Nirvana. I like their stuff, it's really good! Speaking of growing music collection, it expanded this weekend with the purchase of Megadeth's Rust In Peace and the 2-disc live set Rude Awakening. Did the NASCAR Friday night, and got to meet Jason Leffler, Kevin Harvick, Richard Childress, Jeff Burton, and the Labonte Bros. (Terry is a real nice guy; so is Bobby). As an added feature, Quiet Riot performed, which was really awesome. Today, well, I was at TEXAS MOTOR SPEEDWAY from 5:30 am to 5 pm. Awesome, awesome race...poor Tony, yay for Junior, hard luck for Bobby, too bad for Kasey K, and can't wait to go to TMS again in November!!! Anyways, I've talked too much and it may be of little interest, but that's my alibi for this weekend's negligence. Again, thanks for the extra votes on my old parodies!!!

Glad to hear from you. I will forgive you for even mentioning that Mike Patton ( singer of FNM ) sounds ANYTHING like Smashing Pumpkins and Nirvana ( I have also heard them being compared to the Red Hot Chili Peppers which makes me want to vomit as well ). I think that the best tracks off there are the songs " The Real Thing " ( which is difficult to parody, but I have a working title for it called " It's Stealing " ) and their cover or " War Pigs ". " Falling to Pieces " I have parodied before but did a pretty bad job on it ( was reading the lyrics from a sheet ). Anyway, glad you enjoyed the race. I can understand about the Linkin Park parody. I just made a new one a few hours ago on Soundgarden's " Blow Up The Outside World " as sung by George Bush. It mentions the 9/11 incidents so I'm sure I'll see piles of 111's on it ( and lots of nasty comments too ). I'm may have " Burden in my hand " by them out this week as well. I'm working on my second " Holy Grail " parody, one that is over 30 years old and has NEVER been parodied here before. I've got like 4 of the 20-40 stanzas done but don't expect it out for a while. Been on inthe00s.com for a while doing useless stuff as I'm a bit worried now as court is 2 days away. Anyway,, chat with you later.

Dangit, the new-entry parodies are still up from two days ago! I can't release my parody! AARGH, it'll have to wait until the weekend since, yet again, I have to postpone my Austin trip (I was involved in my first auto accident Tuesday - some guy in a truck rear-ended me b/c he failed to yield at a YIELD sign - looks like he totaled the car since my Honda is worth maybe only $3200 and damages have exceeded that amount already from what can be seen). Yeah, I've heard of Soundgarden and I really like their stuff! It's just most of their stuff I haven't heard YET...emphasis on word YET. "Outshined" and "Black Hole Sun" I have heard, and will visit your parodies since you mention it. Don't worry about me, I'm slowly but surely expanding my music collection. I'm still working on AC/DC, but I'm also looking for this AWESOME, AWESOME death metal band called SONATA ARCTICA! They're not from USA so their stuff is not heard on the radio, but I've heard some of their cover songs on my tribute albums I have, and I want to get there CD's as quick as possible, b/c they are THAT GOOD! Perhaps death metal at its classiest, and yes, that's how they play their death metal....classy style. Don't frown or grimace until you've heard them!!! Which reminds me, I found this cool record store near my house and they had a ULTRA RARE Pantera album from 1983!!! This is before the Phil Ansemo days, back when Dimebag and VInnie were Glam Rockers!! I bought it for $50, but that's a low price for such a rare album!!

Sorry about that accident. I'll keep this short. I had court yesterday and 2 or the 3 charges were dismissed but it may be up to a year before I get a date on the other charge. I remember getting a bootleg AIC album before ( Heroin ) and the last 5 tracks are AFU ( I paid like 27$ for it ).I like Pantera too, but haven't heard them without Phil Anselmo. You know that Dimebag Darrell was killed on stage right? Happened a few months ago. Gunned down. Anyways I'll look for that parody you are going to submit soon. I'm looking for a few job ATM so there will be few parodies from me for a while ( maybe 1-2 a week ). Later.

As far as the accident is concern, insurance called this afternoon and the fate of my car is leaning heavily on being totaled. man. First my Isuzu, now my Honda...anyways, I heard the new Audioslave single on the radio tonight. Y'know, I think Audioslave is going to be pretty successful in the long run, if they are not already. The new song was cool! Well, good luck on your court dates and job. On a final note, I know about the tragedy of Dimebag Darrell. I remember the day after it happened, the radio station I listen to played a Pantera/ Damage Plan song every hour as a fitting tribute. On another note, the singer on the 1983 record is a guy named Terry Glaze...

Hey! I found a picture for you! Go to this website... members.tripod.com/theoddone/pantera/metalmagic.html There you will see the album I bought and the songs that are on there. It's the same Pantera lineup except for the singer. And if you're interested in Sonata Arctica, check out their website... www.sonataarctica.info Like I said, SA has got to be one of the most melodic death metal band ever. They did covers of Metallica's "Fade To Black" and Scorpion's "Still Loving You" both of them *astoundingly* beautiful and hardcore. I definitely want to add them to my Music Library. Anyways, thought you might want to see these two sites! Until next time...later!

Ahh, just got off of work ( new jobs suck ). I'll check out those websites soon. I finished a parody of " American Pie " called " 2005 ( the year the music died ) ( not the " Holy Grail " parody I mentioned before, American Pie has been done atleast 15 times ) that basically slams every bad artist/event I could fit from 2000-2005. Of course it didn't get submitted today and since parodies go in reverse alphabetical order by TOS name it will be at the bottom of all the parodies submitted from Saturday afternoon to Monday morning. It may be ignored Monday but I think by Tuesday that song since it starts with a number may be on the top of the list. I HOPE it gets submitted ( may not for a few cuss words which were asterisked ) because my computer locked up after I typed and submitted it and I didn't get a chance to print it. Well, I need to get some sleep now my legs are killing me. PS- That Metallica parody is VERY similar to your Linkin Park parody. :)

I'm really quite surprised on how well the Linkin Park parody is being received. Truthfully, I was only expecting 2-3 votes. The parody on paper actually looks and sounds much more awful than it does posted on here. Strange...for the first time, a semi-crap parody fares well and survives (for me anyway). Then that must mean whenever my Sheryl Crow parody is submitted (which I'm actually proud of), it will be widely ignored (except from a few). Well, I'll be looking forward to that Metallica parody as I have one in the works right now (and its of an old one - no more hints!). On a final note, congrats on your American Pie parody, for that must be one of the most challenging songs to successfully parody. I'll be looking forward to that also.

Yeah, you did great on the LP parody ( I'm glad you picked a song of theirs I knew ). I noticed the comment on " The Color of Mauve " parody. Yeah, looking back it was incomplete and I should not have given a 555 but also he may have been working with downloaded lyrics which are sometimes horrible. That Sheryl Crow parody may do well if people KTOS. It's kinda funny: That American Pie parody took several days on and off to make and got 8 votes ( they were great ) but SEVERAL anonymous 555's ( odd ). The parody of " Simply Irresistible " I submitted took nowhere near as long and got 12 votes ( my best showing by far ). You REALLY need to hear that song-I think you would like it. Anyway, I have about 7 parodies in the works ATM and I suspect that 4 of them are first submissions and 1 or 2 is a first submission from a entire band. PS- That Metallica parody is still in the works but I'm having a lot of trouble condensing my original lyrics into the song and into a proper order. If I can't I may just make an extended version of the song to get them all in. Later for now.

I will be submitting a parody again tonight. Haven't decided which one yet, so it'll be a surprise. My Metallica parody is coming along quickly and so far so good. Two days ago, I thought of another catchy parody that will have to wait 'til I get around to it (you ever heard of Krokus' "Ballroom Blitz?" Yeah, I have a cool idea for that song). Today, I'm getting my wrecked Honda towed away, and a nice, hefty check in return ($3900 for a $3200-valued car -- can't go wrong with that).Now the real problem is finding another car. So far, the search has been a failure. Quick question before I head off -- how's the progress on the "Call of Ktulu" parody, or did you call that off? I ask cause I don't remember...
Red Ant - April 29, 2005 - Report this comment
I think TCOK will most likely be put on hold for a while because it uses 2 guitars ( and therefore I'd have to make a seperate line for all the " wails " ). The into would look like this ( VERY ROUGHLY-first 8 notes ): do de du dun do doon de doon. Now, considering that song has well over 2000 notes and what I just wrote was the " slow " part I think even YOU would get lost at some point ( and would probably disagree as to what " words " to use should be ). See about how impossible this is? Good deal on your car ( the bonus 700 bucks ) and no I haven't heard that Krokus song. PS- Agrimorfee is a woman according to her gender on inthe00s . Later.

I'm just *one* parody away from being in the Top Submittors! Hopefully, the next parody I submit will be accepted a little better than the Sheryl Crow one. Surprisingly to me, it has been branded to having pacing problems, but the Linkin Park one was much worse, but it went thru unscathed. Oh well. Oops, didn't see the time, I gotta go. On a final note, if you want, feel free to sing any of my songs, just give credit where credit is due. I'd record them myself, but my singing is sub-par. So if you want, go ahead! I'd love to hear Master of Grilling or Cake On A Leash recorded (my two favorite parodies)! Take easy, man, and keep the parodies coming...
Red Ant - May 03, 2005 - Report this comment
Yeah, with a vocal modification I could get as low as Hetfield for Master of Grilling and can do Cake on a Leash with almost no mods, just need a room with good accoustics. I never realized that I sang well untill I was at the plant one day by myself in an empty 20'x30'x10' high concrete room. The reverb and echo were perfect. I sound like crap on tape for some reason though ( like answering machines- guess it's the mic in them ). Just need a Karaoke CD to make them. About the only people I can't hit well are Steven Tyler, Axl Rose, Geddy Lee, and a few AIC songs like a few parts of "Man In The Box". Would need some help with Chris Cornell ( can't hit the low or high notes ) and Mike Patton ( I don't think anyone can sing like him ). I have close to a 3 octave range ( most of the ones I listed are 4+ ). I will have 2 new parodies Wednesday and maybe one more on Thursday. Later.

Man, what a busy week! With my towed car in a mysterious place, finding a suitable replacement is difficult. Do you know anyone selling a Honda that's under 170K miles, is a 5 spd, has a sunroof (optional), and priced at or under $7,000?? If so, tell 'em I'll meet half way from Texas. Nah, kidding. Honda's are EVERYWHERE, but finding one to buy is like trying to get a diamond before someone else does. Hey, I heard an AIC song I've never heard before off Music Bank - the 1991 demo of Rooster! That's an awesome cut! I have it copied to my computer. And on the subject of voices sounding like crap on answering machines, just to let you know, everyone sounds like crap to themselves when heard. I know I sound funny, but everyone says that's how I sound. Well, I'm off to look for more cars -- wish me luck cause I'm gonna need it.

Yeah, Hondas around here are like that too. I have several live recordings of rare unreleased AIC music, but not Music Bank. PS- You missed my Metallica parody of " Trapped Under Ice " ( I'm still working on the one from Kill 'Em All ).

Can you list those unreleased AIC songs for me? I have some of their unreleased demos that never made it to CD and I'm wondering if you have the same ones I do. Plus, if you have something that I don't, I'm sure some of my friends with vast music collections have them and I'll steal 'em. But the "Rooster" demo was awesome -- I will even dare to say that it is *almost* better than the original.
Red Ant - May 08, 2005 - Report this comment
I would suggest downloading them from a file sharing site or getting the bootlegs. MANY of them were not released on ANYTHING at all. I Can't Remember ( hehe ) them all. The two bootlegs I have are " Heroin " ( it was not recorded at the correct speed ( about 10% faster and the last 5 tracks are scrambled so it sucks ) ) and " Working Class Heros " ( which is perfect as far as recording speed and what not ). Most of them are demos but the few live recordings I have are awesome.

The 2 songs I like the best over the original versions are " Sludge Factory " ( Unplugged ) and " Love, Hate, Love " ( Live bootleg ). Also " It Ain't Like That " live is great as well. The " Sunshine " demo was good even though it was not recorded at the correct speed. Also on WCH there is " Ring Them Bells " with Layne and Nancy and Ann Wilson from Heart. Laynes part is only one chorus but I like Heart very much and that song is practically impossible to parody at all ( even if I could I wouldn't touch it as it is too good to make a parody of ).

Hmm, Agrimorfee is now a man according to his gender on inthe00s.com. Perhaps he was just screwing around before.

Yeah, it sounds like a good idea, but I've got too much going on that occupies my time. It's hard enough just trying to write my new parodies. In the past two weeks, I've added maybe three lines to my upcoming Metallica parody...woo hoo. The whole car-searching ordeal is still producing failures. On a lighter note though, I congratulate you on your selection of being a judge. You've really made a name for yourself here at amiright, and it won't be long before you'll be one of the amiright legends like Guy, or R. Duncan, Phil Alex, Spaff.com, and so many others (mostly top 15). Perhaps (in 10 years) I'll be up there among the parody legends someday! Not that's my dream or anything, but...
Red Ant - May 11, 2005 - Report this comment
Thanks for saying that I have made a name for myself here. I too am suffering from some writer's block at the moment. So what does a parodist do about that? You parody it of course!! ( "Writer's Block" set to The Beatles "Yesterday" ). Hehe. I've probably 15 parodies on the board right now between 10-60% complete. The next one is similar to your "Power of Smoke" but more depressing. That'll be the next one I suspect I submit.

On an aside, that Amiright Idle tryout may not have been the best idea as I really don't want to pick apart someone's parody and only 2 have been submitted so far.

As for being one of the legends that will be a while for sheer numbers but I am happy with what I have been putting out recently for the most part. I will never be the best though and can accept that. My bio is done and now that it is up I kinda don't like it. I left out a few things and what not but oh well. I have changed so much since I wrote it that some of it kinda irritates me now. Anyway, keep looking for a car and keep in touch.

I've already decided that I won't add a bio until I get to parody 100 (which will be a loooong time, but that's fine, I'll experience a lot of life before number 100, and will have more about me to say). NIce bio by the way. I don't remember what parody it was but I know how you earned the name Red Ant. Mine is simple: my real name is Jonathan and, well, I'm skinny. Back in Nov. 2003, I wanted to create a cool-sounding parody name for myself like what "Weird" Al did for his name. Thus was born the anorexic moniker (even though I eat like a pig -- super high metabolism, I enjoy it while it lasts). The car search will continue. I feel like I'm getting closer, but at the same time it's so discouraging. With the rise in gas prices, most everyone is trading in their vehicles for economy-loving Hondas and Toyotas. Well, I won't get into that, but I'm looking forward to this weekend. NASCAR will be at Richmond and college is done for the summer (finally). Happy pre-Friday the 13th! Hope nothing weird happens!
Red Ant - May 13, 2005 - Report this comment
Yeah, I added my bio sometime I think at 43 submissions, and when it got posted I had 90 ( 47 new parodies in a month ). I've been wondering where most of the regulars are as I have seen few parodies from them in the last 2 weeks ( especially Johnny D, was worried that tick bite may have been serious, but he posted on inthe00s.com today or yesterday so I'm reassured now ). My metabolism used to be like that, could eat over 4000 calories a day and not gain a pound.

As for that car search, unless you do alot of long distance driving fuel economy is not that important ( and whatever you do DO NOT GET A HYBRID-if it breaks on you and is out of warranty you are up the creek ).

This Friday the 13th has already been odd today 3 ways- 2 at work and one is a family members birthday.

Nice nickname if you ever wanted to make it as a " Weird Al 2 " or whatever.

Yes, I'm looking foward to the race as well as Ricky does well there at Richmond ( I predict he'll qualify top 10 ). You said you FINISHED COLLEGE, but how well did you do? Oh, you said for the summer, meaning you have more to do.

Hey, I thought of a " Rooster " parody called " Hooters " but it's NOT about their chicken wings. ;-) Mind if I make it?
Scrawny Johnny - May 13, 2005 - Report this comment
Hey, man, the hot wings at Hooters parody idea I once had for AIC's "Rooster" has long been abandoned, so go for it. Y'know, I was thinking of releasing a list of all the parody ideas I had but never followed up on them. I think I will...first up "Am I Elvis?" (parody of Metallica's/Diamond Head's "Am I Evil?"). Very old parody idea from around 2003...never fell through though. Plus, I don't know enough about Elvis to make a witty parody. I'll list more when I can remember. I won't get a hybrid (too $$$), and I didn't check on Ricky's qualifying, but Jr. qualified top 27 (he qualified 27)!!! Yeah, I still have a lot of college to do, it's only summer vacation. I just remembered about the conversation we had about AIC's demos...here are the demos I have that I believe may have come from some bootlegs or are completely unreleased; others are from Music Bank... Fairy Tale Love Story Hush, hush Sealed With a Kiss Chemical Addiction Blue (very low quality) I Can't Have You Blues (MB) Whatcha Gonna Do? (MB) Football (very funny unreleased demo) We Die Young Demo (Music Bank) Heroin (Real Thing demo) Rooster Demo (MB) Junkhead Demo (MB again) Over The Edge (MB??) Killing Yourself (MB??) King Of The Kats Lying Season (MB) Suffragette City (David Bowie cover) Look (MB??) Foolish (MB??) Social Parasite (MB??) Died (MB) Fear The Voices
Red Ant - May 13, 2005 - Report this comment
Hmm, may have to cough up the money for MB as I do not have much of what you listed. You can Google search for something along the lines of " Alice in Chains demos/bootlegs " and find some of the ones I listed. Working Class Heros has the following on it: The 2 tracks from Last Action Hero ( What The Hell Have I and A Little Bitter ), B side of " We Die Young " ( Killing Yourself ), Ring Them Bells with Heart ( EXCELLENT SONG ), Heaven 'N Hell, Queen of the Rodeo, Suffragette City, Fairy Tale Love Story, I Can't Have You Blues, I've Seen All Of This World I Care To See ( sung by Jerry ), I Don't Want To Be A Soldier, Time Of The Preacher ( sounds very Johnny Cash, maybe a cover of his ), Short Outro ( not a song ), It Ain't Like That ( Live -Excellent ), Hate To Feel ( Live- pretty good ), and Lip Lock Rock. " Heroin " has all that you listed, but isn't recorded at the right speed and the last 5 tracks are scrambled ( Would?, Angry Chair, Dam The River, Them Bones, Junkhead, and Rooster ), which sucks as Junkhead and Them Bones worked at one time and were great but are now corrupted somehow.

I am working on Rooster now, and will probably have it out by Tuesday. I have on order " Degradation Trip " so I can do some Jerry Cantrell parodies ( Boggy Depot is really bad and the one "hit" Cut You In ( and I guess " Dickeye " ) are just not worth parodying ).

It'll be my 25th parody and I have two more that are about 65% complete. This week, I've been pounded with parody ideas. Some were so good that I abandon a few of my recent ideas to work on the new ones. Well, gotta go to work even though I'm tired...didn't get home last night until 3:45am.

Gratz on the 25. Tomorrow will be my second Aerosmith parody ( it's ALOT better than my first ), it's already submitted. I'm working on a STP parody because Step-Chan and I are having a second contest ( we concluded that the first one was a draw ). This time we are parodying an identical alt. era song that neither of us has done before.

PS- " Degradation Trip " and another CD came today so since I get paid tomorrow hopefully you will see some new bands parodied. Also, I have abandoned the TCOK/316 parodies completely.

It's probably best that you do give up the TCOK idea...that would be just an ungodly amount of effort and it's likely very few here will comment or vote.

Hey, check out today's parodies...look for Malcolm Higgin's parody...that's a big clue to my upcoming Metallica parody!! And the song I chose is *perfect*, I think, for the topic! But I'm still not done and probably won't be until end of this month!! Good luck on your contest, but if you'll excuse me, I think I hear a Subway sandwich calling my name on the other side of town...good thing I have that Honda now! S. Johnny out.....

Thanks for looking at my Aerosmith parody. I had it 100% complete only to find that the IDENTICAL parody title had been used before ( once ) so I had to change it. The versions are quite different.

Yeah, TCOK and 316 were abandoned because I don't think even I would understand or be able to follow them with the music, they are very obscure instumentals and someone has already beat me to an instrumental parody ( atleast twice ), not to mention as you say very few people would look at it. As for your Metallica parody, if you are referring to his STD parody all that comes to mind is Hit The Lights or Motorbreath. My Metallica parody is on hold for a while while I do this contest again.

I had Subway yesterday and usually it is quite good but that one was pretty bad. Looking foward to the Nirvana parody.

The Nirvana parody has been submitted and should be seen tomorrow. I must say, that Sub sandwich was highly satisfying to my upsettingly hungry stomach. Devoured a foot-long with all the works in under 7 minutes (since it was almost time for work). Another reason why the TCOK parody probably wouldn't work is it would be hard to follow. Everyone hears the music differently in their head while reading the lyrics or will misread a lyric to a specific line of music. I don't know if I'm doing so great in explaining what I'm trying to say. Ok, basically, everyone hears music (and even songs) totally different than what's written. Some of my parodies that I think are paced correctly to the original will receive votes and comments stating that the pacing is off, and others say it's excellent. Blah, blah, blah...shutting up now cause you know what I mean. As for my Metallica parody, I won't reveal the song, but the topic is about streaking which is the same topic M. Higgins wrote for some song today (now yesterday). That was my clue, but this Metallica song is like I said, the ideal song to parody about streaking...can't wait to finish it and show it off. Anyways, quick question before I pass out., how do you space out your paragraphs? Everytime I press ENTER they still appear all crammed up. Tell me your secret and I will be forever appreciative...Later.

LOL, I am almost 100% positive of the OS AND the parody name if it is from Kill 'Em All: Seek & Destroy called Streak & Enjoy. I'm even guessing that one of the lyrics will be " Naked, Streak and enjoy ".Or it could be Streak The Nights or Streakflash. Or I could be dead wrong. hehe. To break up paragraphs use HTML code. Insert the capital letters BR inbetween ( twice in a row )and you get

On the downside it appears that yesterday's parodies will stay up until tomorrow or, on a worst-case scenario, Monday. My 25th parody will be flooded out and virtually ignored.

Not Seek & Destroy? How about No Remorse to Streak of Course, Streaking More ( to Phantom Lord ), or Streaking Militia? That covers all except TFH, which could be The Four Streakers.

Hopefully, my Nirvana parody isn't completely drowned out.

Well, you got 6 555 on yours already so that is very good considering nearly 100 submissions today. The Hooters parody is canned for now, though it may show up in the future.

Well, I entered a few of my parodies into contests on inthe00s.com, including "Garbage Trucker" for the G-round. That should go over well hehe. I am still stuck on parodies here, though have several suitable for whatfreaks

There are even more parodies I have had to can because they are not funny. Lets just say that one is like William Tong on Soundgarden. Huge Bush slam that isn't funny even to me ( fully completed parody ). That's one major reason why I haven't had much out. They are either too political, not funny or too $exual, all of which I try to avoid

I have roughly 15 such parodies ATM that I really have no idea as to what to do with them. I also have several 60%+ complete but are of such obscure songs that nobody would vote them ( 2 FNM parodies in that mix )

Ok, now that I'm done crying over powdered water, on a lighter note you said you wanted to make a name here eventually. I would suggest ( again ) registering on inthe00s.com and entering your parodies into the contests. The May SOTM thread will open in a week or so. You can enter "Letter" contests, right now we are on "G" ( still open ). That will get you some more attention to your work while you are off from college. Of course, there are several parodists that never enter. I would suggest though that when the letter "I" comes around you enter your "Ice Cream Man" parody, if you are interested. That would probably get another 10 votes 444+.

Glad you enjoyed "Streak and Enjoy" hehe ( that was only the 3rd parody of that song ).Now I am tempted to make every single song off of that CD about streaking since I have working titles/choruses for several of them. PS-Tell me what CD that parody is coming from. Later Scrawny Johnny.

Well, I'll keep your contest idea in mind. I just don't want to start something I may not be able to stay committed to. Right now, I'm pleased that I finally broke the top 25. In my next parody, I will thank everyone who's ever commented on my parodies. Honestly, I wasn't expecting the turnout I received on my Nirvana parody. Weird.

Since you asked so nicely, I will tell you that the Metallica song is from Ride the Lightning. Plus, if you can correctly guess in ONE try what song it is I'm parodying, I will let you read a small sample of the parody to see what you think of it. So far I think it's good, but some early feedback might be fun. I'll even help you out: it is NOT these songs: Fight Fire With Fire, Escape, or Trapped Under Ice (and you automatically know it's not TCOK). That leaves only four choices. Think carefully and maybe you'll get it right. Think carefully about the choruses...it's the chorus that inspired the streaking idea! Good luck!!

Friday is all-day request day on the radio station I listen to. I'm gonna try to get them to play "Epic" by FNM. Read comment on your "Not Mine!" parody to see how cool this radio station is...they'll most likely play it...

Okay, assuming you are telling me the truth on what it ISN'T, I will try to rule the rest out. Fade to Black doesn't have choruses and For Whom The Bell Tolls has choruses too short, leaving Creeping Death ( which I could see "Streaking Best" out of and has 3 suitably long enough choruses ) but MY GUESS is Ride The Lightning as the chorus is " Flash before my eyes....". I have an entire parodied chorus worked out for it, but do NOT have a good parody title for "Ride The Lighting".

So, is it Ride The Lightning?

You have guessed correctly. I present to you a sampling:

Party tonight
But something isn't right
I sense a disturbance in the Force
Three naked guys
Go streaking by surprise
I think I just went blind of course

Who talked my boss into
Exposing all his skin?

Flash before my eyes
Streakers running by
Burned into my brain
Their image will remain

And that is all I will reveal for now. I have the second stanza written, but I'm having slight trouble with the very last stanza. Expect the complete song around June/July. So what do you think? Bounce some ideas off me or some criticism or what not.
Red Ant - May 27, 2005 - Report this comment
I like it. I think it would be funnier if it were about YOU vs your boss, but that would require almost completely different lyrics than what you have.

The second line of the chorus has the correct syllables, but is sung more like "Now, it's time, to die" giving a 122 effect vs your 221, but it's so short that there isn't much you can do with it so I wouldn't worry about it. The 4th line listed in the chorus has 6 syllables vs 5 in TOS ( unless you are stretching "flame" into 2 syllables ) and I had thought of "Don't they feel some shame" ( actually since it was written from first person perspective it was "Should I feel some shame" ) vs what you have listed. Very good though.

I might use that "should I feel some shame" line, maybe in the stanza I'm stuck on. As far as the 221 syllable line-up, yeah, just stretch out "flame." After all, James in the song says "fla--yame." The boss line was just thrown in there to add comical visuals for the reader of his/her boss humiliating themselves like that. I'm glad you like it so far. When I start the next parody, I'll let you read some to get some early feedback. I appreciate it, thanks, and congratulations on your guess! ~ Later

No problem. Once you told me to look at the chorus it was easy.

Here are some samples ( VERY ROUGH ) for "Hit The Lights" to "Streak The Nights" ( I am hearing some contractions in here vs the typed words like "We are" is "We're" ).

No like of clothing
We're gonna show some a$$ tonight
(We) got the nudie madness
When people start streaking that's right
Well tonight, yeah
When I start to strip I never
Want to clothe again
Streak the nights (x3).

The (We) in parentheses I do not hear in the song. Let me know what you think.

PS- How many songs are supposed to be on Kill 'Em All? Mine has 10, but a lyrics site listed "Am I Evil" and 2 others. Was this a special release?
Red Ant - May 28, 2005 - Report this comment
PSS- Here is a rough chorus for "The Four Horsemen" called "The Four Streakers":

The streakers are coming near us
(Oh) No modesty they hide
They've thrown their clothes aside
On to the break of light
Showing four streakers pride
Or close your eyes and cry.
BR> Like it? I want to do the entire KEA album to streaking.

Oh man, that's awesome! Yeah, the "Hit the Lights" one is dead on! I say go for it! I laughed at the "never wanna clothe again" part! As for the Four Horsemen, awesome on that too! That would be so cool if you did parody every song on Kill 'Em All to a streaking theme, but remember to give the album an appropriate nudeness name such as Streak 'Em All or something like that. I think both are off to a great start (but honestly, my fav of the two would have to be "Streak the Nights"....gotta see the whole thing of that). I might be wrong, but that may be the first "Hit the Lights" parody!

Kill 'Em All has only 10 songs. "Am I Evil" and "Blitzkrieg" were on a single all by themselves and was recorded the same time as Kill 'Em All. The lyrics sites like to include them as track 11 and 12 (I guess for easy categorizing reasons maybe). If there was a special release (which I doubt), it is beyond my knowledge and beyond the boundaries of this country.
Red Ant - May 30, 2005 - Report this comment
Okay cool. The version of Streak The Nights I will have done soon probably and will leave the (We) in it as an "optional" pacing aid, as I only hear "Got the metal madness" on that line, yet "We" is listed in there.

Yes, you guessed correctly, the album name will be Streak 'Em All when it is finished. My vocabulary is a bit limited when it comes to this subject ( that is, without using many cursewords ). Anasthesia/Pulling Teeth DOES have words in it, a whopping 4~"Bass solo, take one" and therefore cannot be parodied as a song, but if included in an album I will put "Streak solo, not fun" just for completion.

Hit The Lights has been done once and Four Horsemen is SAID to have been done once, but I cannot find it under the new "band search" feature: Here it is:

PS- What CD cover did Metallica have that had a bloody knife coming out of a toilet? Was this the intial cover for KEA called Metal Up The A$$ or a different CD?
Red Ant - May 30, 2005 - Report this comment
PSS- The rest of the songs off of that CD will be first parodies of that song, provided that they were not credited to a different artist. I think Motorbreath will be the hardest after a quck glance, and was the one I initially had for my tattoo parody. Of course, since the title is Out of Breath ( from Streaking ) it will likely be the last composed anyways.

Oh right, well congrats on this album idea you have in the works! I'll be looking forward to each song. Have you already released some or are you about to? You should put "Streak solo, Take One" at the end of the Jump in the Fire parody. Label as its own song too. That'll be an added bonus included after the JumpNFire parody. Call it...oh I don't know....Nudity (Removing Clothes) or something like that. Sweet! That'll be awesome.

I noticed your votes on Come Eat With Us, and though I appreciate them, that was almost too generous. That parody is my worst one, yuck. Thanks for the votes, but hopefully that parody will be ignored and forgotten

I did some quick research, but Metal Up 'Yer Ass was the prototype cover for Metallica's first album. Even though it looked cool and Metallica should've used it again, they decided to go with the classic hammer with fresh blood artwork and rename it to Kill 'Em All. Not only that, there's a rare demo tape they made before KEA called "No Life 'Til Leather" which featured Mustaine as their guitarist. Didn't know if you knew that, so I threw that in...

One last thing I also discovered in my quick research....have you seen Metallica's Load CD cover? Do you know the disgusting story behind that??
Red Ant - June 02, 2005 - Report this comment
Well, the songs will not be in order on the Streak 'Em All parody CD I am making, so Anasthesia/Pulling Teeth will be first called "Embar-assing/Streaking Geek".

I have no idea about the Load cover. Looks like a splash of blood.

PS: Some loser made this parody of "Come As You Are".

When Metallica was making Load, Kirk happened to find a painting by some guy named Andrew somethin. Anyways, the painting is the picture on the CD "Load." Looks like splattered blood or a lava lamp right? Yes, but it's really a picture, a REAL picture, of the artist's blood MIXED with his own SEMEN. Gross, huh? But the Metalli-Heads liked it and used it for the cover...

Reload is blood and urine of the artist, which is just as gross

Well, I've been working on parody 100 for a while now. Hopefully it will be a masterpiece. You know TOS. I'm thinking perhaps it will be done by Tuesday night at the latest.
Scrawny Johnny - June 07, 2005 - Report this comment
Congrats on 100! That's the number I hope to reach someday (in parodies, not age). The only reason I know "I Am the Very Model...yadda yadda" is because there is an old Animaniacs song called "I Am the Very Model of a Cartoon Individual," and it's quite funny. But as for the Gibert/Sullivan, I've never heard of it. Speaking of Animaniacs, on Jun 17, I will reveal my next parody. It's really good, and I'm hoping for a good turnout...

Anyways, are you feeling any better?

Thanks for the 100. I don't think I want to live that long either. I need to hear the "Cartoon Individual" version. Anyway, yeah I'm feeling better. Now that I got that parody out of the way, I don't think I will ever do that OS again ( it was a huge PITA to do this time, despite the fact that I have parodied it before ).

Working more now, so I will probably not have as many parodies coming out as I have. Looking foward to that parody.

I made a parody last night that I don't think will get posted. It's a parody of Soundgardens "Burden In My Hand", but isn't funny really. Chalk another one up to the X-Files ( my code name of the now growing number of parodies that will not be released ). Enjoy the trip.

The trip went well. My friends that lived down there and I went tubing down the Comal river which runs directly by Schlitterbahn, and we went looking for some crazy souvenir stores right down the street from the capital building. All in all, it was a lot of fun. Except for the 30 minute traffic delay in Hillsboro on the way to Dallas, that was irritating. Funny thing is, I only took three photos and they were all my friend Karen. Hey, she's a hottie, so I figured, why not. She's the reason I went down there anyway. But her boyfriend is really cool and he didn't mind at all for me staying. Well, that's basically it. Oh, well, besides the story of one Karen's friends caught drinking under age at the river. For a sec, I thought we were ALL going to jail. Nope, just a fine for her friend. Anyways, did I miss anything? I saw the Bleed the Freak parody and I enjoyed it! Several weeks ago, Bleed the Freak became my new fav AIC song so it was refreshing to see a parody of it.

I finally finished the Ride the Lightning streaking parody...one down, hundreds more to go. However, it probably won't be submitted til Aug. since I still have to go over to make sure it's right. On another note, July is going to be one busy month, full with a job change and a visit to Calif. so I may not reply to this thread as often as I'd like. Ever since Austin, things around here have constantly needed my attention, so I apologize for the lateness of past comments. Among the parody ideas floating around in my head, I finally came up with a good AIC parody of Man In The Box. I'll go ahead and tell you since I trust you won't steal my ideas. It will either be The Man With Botox OR The Man In The Tux, one of the two. I still have many parodies to write and finish before I can even begin the AIC parody, but it will remain on my mental list of future parody ideas. Any suggestions or what-not are welcome. Until later ~

Yeah, things are getting busy around here as this is a major tourist hotspot and grass grows at an insane rate this time of year, requiring serious yardwork. Anyway, the AIC parody sounds good and looking foward to the Metallica parody. I'm going to have "Hit The Lights" done in a few days hopefully and possible "The Four Horsemen" as well.

I have had even more parody ideas come to me, but lets say they aren't going to be seen here. As for taking "MITB", nope, I've done that song twice now and to be honest is one of my least favorite AIC songs. Heard "Them Bones" on the radio today which was refreshing. About the streaking parody, only suggestion is to release it sooner. Another month of tweaking it probably isn't worth the time or restricting you from working on other parodies. Later~~

I've considered your advice. Look for Ride the Lightning parody tomorrow or if I forget tonite, Thursday. Hopefully I'll remember. Not much has happened...except work...and an excess amount of parody ideas. I hardly time to write 'em anymore. But I'm not retiring that's for sure.

Did Independence Day go on alright w/o the threat of humongous UFOs blowing key monuments in New York and in DC? heh, heh, just a little movie gag. I barely saw any fireworks this year, but I really didn't care either. However I did see the race (that was awesome).

Well, the 4th was uneventful. There are 2 major firework shows within sight of my house. Looking foward to the RTL parody. Glad you liked "Streak The Nights" but "The Four Streakers" I think blows it away, and is perhaps going to be my best work from that CD. I have a FNM parody in the works from "The Real Thing", and it's about the food I ate yesterday. Also have another Metallica parody coming of Enter Sandman very soon. Hopefully those 2 will be done by tomorrow night.

Anyway, good deal on releasing that parody soon. Sometimes it isn't worth holding back a parody to tweak one or 2 lines unless you're submitting it for SOTM ( hint, hint ). Later.~

Thanks for the comment on "The Four Streakers" parody. Actually the way SOTM works is you register on inthe00s.com and enter it yourself into the contest. They are then voted on by everyone else who enters into the contest via a top 5 list with points awarded by position ( 1st gets 5points, 2nd 4 and so on ) and then at the end of the month the results are tallied.

As far the FNM parody I'm having troubles with the "internal rhymes" in the song so it may be Monday ( or not at all ). Also the Metallica parody is flopping at the moment. I may work some more on the album for Streak 'Em All.

I have several ideas but they are crashing and burning on the ground right now. Good luck on yours and no I haven't seen the Megadeth greatists hits CD. Later~

Ah, I appreciate the flattery. When I think about it, Master of Grilling was a well-written parody; hopefully more like that are in the near future

Yesterday I came up with my Top 6 favorite AIC songs in order from most fav to slightly-better-than-average fav --

1. Bleed the Freak
2. Would?
3. I Stay Away
4. Down In A Hole
5. Again
6. Whale & Wasp

Down In A Hole was up against Rain When I Die since that's a good one too. Whale/Wasp is such a melodic instrumental that it sometimes leaves me wishing it was a tad longer. Most of Facelift has hits I really enjoy but Bleed stands out of all of them. Why I came up with this list, I don't know... ~
Red Ant - July 08, 2005 - Report this comment
Good list. To throw out my faves, here they are in no order: Love, Hate, Love, Confusion, Bleed The Freak, Sunshine (demo), Would?, Sickman, I Stay Away, Don't Follow, Rotten Apple and Sludge Factory (Unplugged) and It Ain't Like That (Live).

After another glance at Kill 'Em All, "Whiplash" looks darned near impossible at the moment. I didn't realize that the song is so long because there are no real long breaks in it. Just coming up with a relevant rhyme with "Metallica" is choking me up, and generally I want to at least rhyme every last word in a line to the OS, but may have to toss that as well. No rush on it though, I want the album to be really good when I finish.

My version of "MoP" was going to be "Master of Typos", but I've sort of exhausted the topic and am getting choked up on the "Master, master, where's the dream.." part. Also have thought of doing (Welcome Home ) Sanitarium called "Planetarium" since the music in the song would be cool while in one. Another one I'm letting go of is "Leper Messiah" called "Carey Mariah" about, Mariah Carey. Literally dozens of partial parodies now that are on the back burner indefinately at this point. Anyways, I'll chat with ya later.

Hmm, interesting list; three of my favs were mentioned, but what makes the live version of AIn't Like That stand out more than the original?

Those are creative titles for underrated Metallica songs (especially Leper Messiah which is my second favorite Metallica). "Carey Mariah" is intriguing, and certainly has my curiousity piqued. I'd like to make a list of all the failed parody ideas I discarded just to see how many there are.

Another possible "Metallica" rhyme could be "nudica" or "streaktallica" or maybe "no-clothes-at-all" anyways, gotta go - lunch beckons ~
Red Ant - July 09, 2005 - Report this comment
Lunch beckons at 6pm? Okay, hehe. The live version I have of "It Ain't Like That" is on bootleg, and has more "emphasis" I suppose than TOS, and a few extra of Layne's vocal characteristics that would up getting edited out of Facelift.

Yeah, "Planetarium" would be cool and I do have a bit worked out on that parody, but not much. Also had the title "My Terrarium" for that one, but your "Cafeteria" is still one of the best of that OS here. The line in "Leper Messiah" is "bow to leper messiah", could be "sing like Carey Mariah", which would poke a little fun at James taking singing lessons, or "scream like Carey Mariah" which could be like Metallica dissing her. I do like some of Mariah's songs, but some of those high notes probably attract dolphins. Thanks for the rhymes with "Metallica" ( you and Peter ).

Do you ever watch Mythbusters? They had a rock singer who I never heard of break a crystal wine glass with his UNAIDED/UNAMPLIFIED voice on there today. I wonder if they could try the same at sea with Mariah's voice to see if dolphins actually come up to the boat. :)

When is that Bloodrock parody coming out? Later for now.

Yeah, keep in mind at 6:07 AmIRight time, it's 5:07 Texas time. I woke up late, so my lunch was delayed.

I see what you mean about the live cut of It Aint Like That. The S&M version of One is, dare I say, much better than the original simply b/c Metallica thrashes around like crazy along with an intensified orchestra after the "landmines taking my sight" part in the song.

Speaking of Metallica, what'd they say about Mariah Carey? Futhermore, what would they care about her since she is not heavy metal (like Celine Dion tried once with that AC/DC song...that still creeps me out). Thanks for recognizing the greatness that is "Cafeteria." If I had a greatest hits album, that one will certainly be on there.

I've seen enough of MythBusters to know what they do and how they do it. Can you remember the name of the rock singer? Was he old or young? That's stumped me since I can't think of any rock stars with a high-pitched voice that you've never heard of.

I was thinking of releasing the Bloodrock parody sometime this week, but since I'm going to Calif. to visit family Wed. I won't be able to check on it until I get back (the 21st). Maybe I might release it tomorrow. I'll think about it. Have you heard the song, D.O.A. yet? ~

Yeah, It Ain't Like That is much better Live. I have heard that TCOK is awesome on S & M, but that CD ( well, 2 disc set ) was like 25 bucks last time I checked.

Metallica never dissed Mariah that I know of, I'm just saying if they were to that jumps out as the first song to me they'd use. And yes, I saw Celion Dion and Anasthesia ( i meant Anastacia ) mutilate "All Night Long" on Divas Las Vegas. Not the worst cover I've ever heard but still pretty bad.

I cannot remember that guys name, maybe you can go to mythbusters website and check it out. I never even heard of the band, which I believe was some glam rock/hair metal 80s band. His voice wasn't even that high really, just at the right frequency ( 556 Hz if I recall ) and other factors to break the glass. I don't even think it was over 110 Db.

I still haven't heard D.O.A., so I'll have to trust you on the pacing on that one. I may be "unavailable" after this Friday ( hopefully not ) but looking foward to it. Later~

Yeah, I remember "Love Song." Wasn't that great so it's not in my music library. But speaking of AIC, I have some great news to tell you, that is of course if you like tribute albums. I just found out on the rock station I listen to that an Alice In Chains tribute CD titled "We Pay Our Debts Sometimes: Tribute to AIC" is presently in the works. Here's the track listing from the station's website:

1. MUDVAYNE- Bleed The Freak
2. COLD- Junkhead
3. CARDBOARD VAMPYRES- Don't Follow
4. STATIC-X- Again
5. BREAKING BENJAMIN- Would?
6. PATRICK LACHMAN & JERRY CANTRELL- Sea Of Sorrow
7. STAIND- Am I Inside
8. BLOODSIMPLE- Rain When I Die
9. PUDDLE OF MUDD- I Stay Away
10. MARK LANEGAN & MIKE McCREADY- Frogs
11. ADEMA- Nutshell
12. AUDIOSLAVE- Rooster
13. ZAKK WYLDE & JERRY CANTRELL- Heaven Beside You

This sounds like it'll be a kick-ass tribute album (especially with Mudvayne doing Bleed the Freak)!!! Don't know when it comes out, but I'm looking forward to it ~
Red Ant - August 05, 2005 - Report this comment
Wow, that is great news. Mark Lanegan and Mike McCready were in on Mad Season and Mark has an excellent voice. If they don't slaughter these songs I might buy some of these performers other works/CDs. Chris Cornell doing "Rooster" should be cool ( I forget to get the Audioslave CD at the store ). I have to say from that list there isn't a song I don't like other than possiby "Nutshell". Speaking of AiC, I ordered "Live" as "Love, Hate, Love" is on it as well as "Bleed The Freak".

"Love Song" is a bunch of random lyrics set to wailing and farting noises. Since I have basically nothing to work with it might not be that impressive. I'll link the original lyrics in the opening of the parody. Got to go for now.~

I have parody-block again. I'm still stuck on the same stanza of lyric. Used to in the past, ideas would instantly come to me, but nowadays I have to wait days just for one good idea to come. It's somewhat frustrating...

Well, there's no news down here in TX. However, if you are still keeping up w/ NASCAR, did you know that Kurt Busch has asked for release from Roush Racing for 2006 and has signed on to Penske for 2007. That nearly knocked me from my chair. No more #97; hello possibility of Busch driving Rusty's #2. Don't know if you care or not but I feel it's worth telling to another NASCAR fan.

How's the rest of those Streak 'Em All parodies or did you finish that w/o me knowing? ~
Red Ant - August 10, 2005 - Report this comment
I'm getting stuck as well if for the reason that I have an extreme distaste for using downloaded lyrics alone to make a parody as they are often wrong or incomplete, leading to fairly large pacing errors in my experience. If I can't remember TOS well then it doesn't get made. I've even seen incorrect lyrics for "Scarborough Fair/Canticle". Expanding my music collection more though.

I didn't follow the race Sunday as Ricky crashed out early but I heard about the switch.

The Streak 'Em All album is on hold for a bit, I've got quite a bit of other ideas on the board and numerous unfinished parodies languishing on Notepads. Got to go now, going early to Busch Gardens and Water Country USA tomorrow. ~
Scrawny Johnny - August 11, 2005 - Report this comment
I've heard of Busch Gardens, but what is it? Is it an amusement park or theme park or is just an attraction similar to Sea World? I'm guessing Water Country must be a water park, duh. I live about 2 miles away from Six Flags Over Texas, which I'm sure you know is the first and original Six Flags that started the franchise that has now spread all over the globe (Six Flags Over Holland?? Who knew TX history would inspire international theme parks!!!)

Let me know when you get back to Streak Em All cuz I'm looking forward to your version of Whiplash! ~

We only made it to Busch Gardens yesterday. It is a huge theme park that is right next door to the Anheiser-Busch Brewery. I believe they have a few records there such as the first suspended roller coaster in the USA (hangs underneath the track) and 2 of the tallest coasters in VA. On a busy day over 80,000 people will be in the park. Don't have a day off until next Friday. PS- I know you've heard "Hollaback Girl" at least once. Check out my spoof of it when you get back:

Really lookin' forward to tomorrow...
For starters, it's been torrential ran all day so that means it's a strong possibility I won't have to work with my dad (who's in construction) tomorrow. Secondly, my friends and I are going to get together and buy ourselves copies of the new release of Sin City which is such an awesome movie. In addition to that, being the classic Sonic the Hedgehog fan that I am, a new game comes out tomorrow featuring perhaps arguably the rarest Sonic game ever -- Sonic CD. That right there is a huge highlight. And to wrap all it up, I think I'll have a coveted McFlurry which has become a staple for whenever I have a good day.

Ah, yes, things are looking up......especially the 10 cent increase in gas within 3 hours

On a final note I was able to break through the writer's block and get the second stanza of the parody done ~
Red Ant - August 18, 2005 - Report this comment
Good deal on the parody. I'm getting bits done as well but on several different pieces. I got the Audioslave CD tonight (the one with "Doesn't Remind Me") along with INXS greatest hits and Coldplay "X&Y". I have a working title for "Doesn't Remind Me" but it's rather harsh so I'll wait and see if the rest of the CD is good. Do you remember Chris Cornell's "Sunshower"? Went to get that tonight only to find it isn't on his CD, only released on a single which is now out of print. Talk later~
Red Ant - August 23, 2005 - Report this comment
Hey, just submitted a parody of "Doesn't Remind Me". It starts harsh but then gets better. Not only is it the first submission of that song but the first as well from the CD "Out Of Exile". Anyway, chat later, I'm tired and have to work early.~

Wow, how long has it been since I was last here? Half a month, I see...well, not much has happened except college is back underway and gas prices are soaring to new heights everyday. I don't know how much it is for VA but here in TX, Dallas/Ft.Worth has hit $3.05!! Yikes. Fortunately, I drive that Honda and it's becoming more of a blessing everytime fuel takes a hike (upwards, that is).

Have I missed any good parodies lately? My Little Mermaid parody is 98% complete but it's just 2 measly lines I can't seem to work well with; been workin' on those same two lines now for 3 days and w/ no luck. Then, after that, I'll start work on the next Nirvana parody...

Is the "Out of Exile" CD any good? I've heard Your Time Has Come and Be Yourself, both which sound excellent! On a similar note, my Aunt Leah left for Alabama and left me all her CDs, one which is a Soundgarden CD (I forget the name), but it features Rusty Cage, Jesus Christ Pose, Outshined, etc.

I apologize for the extreme lateness, but life around here has been active and busy, but not necessarily thrilling nor exciting. Until later ~
Red Ant - September 02, 2005 - Report this comment
No apologies necessary. Gas at the station closest to my house is now $3.69 for premium. With the holiday and what not we'll probably break the $4 a gallon mark by Monday.

Good parodies you missed? Plenty, but I only posted a few since you were gone. If you haven't heard Audioslave's "Doesn't Remind Me" yet, you need to. The CD you have is called "Badmotorfinger". Listen to it then read this parody:

http://www.amiright.com/parody/2000s/audioslave11.shtml
Out Of Exile is pretty good. "Be Yourself" is the best on the CD I think.

Look foward to the Little Mermaid parody, though I'm DKTOS on it more than likely.

Have to go for now, try to hear that song and listen to your Soundgarden CD (especially "Outshined") and compare. Later~
Scrawny Johnny - September 09, 2005 - Report this comment
Well, finally finished the parody only to loose the scrap paper I was writing the remaining lyrics on, and to worsen the situation, my memory's not that good. You've seen the Little Mermaid right? Remember the song Under the Sea? If not, oh well, but if so, oh right!

Yesterday was a neutral day leaning slightly on the negative side - I hope today is not like that with it being Friday (a weekend is ruined by bad Fridays). Hopefully the race will be exciting tomorrow night.

I guess I should go get ready for work and prepare for whatever kind of day it may be today (interesting little rhyme there).

By the way that CD is awesome. Chris Cornell has such an amazing voice which is why I want to get Out Of Exile someday.
Well gotta juice n' jam

P.S. - I recently bought Empire by Queensryche w/ songs Jet City Woman and Silent Lucidity, and that is also an awesome CD ~

Hey, what gives?? Wasn't there a comment before this reply?? Where'd it go? Unless my computer loaded this page incorrectly, I think a comment was deleted. Let me know if your comment shows up cause on mine it's not.

Only in TX can you have a Tornado Watch for over 20 counties in the middle of Sept. Weather predictions for tomorrow warn of severe storms and right now everything just north of DFW is gettin' pounded. Weird.

The "Under the Sea" parody has been completed but I submitted a parody of The Who instead. Hope you know Baba O' Riley since that's the original (but I'm positive you do).

That missing comment makes me think if we are starting to overload this page. If so, maybe we might consider moving this thread to another song (and it is getting longer for my computer to load up this page). Just pondering ~

Indeed there was a comment that isn't there now. Not sure why it was deleted, don't remember using any profanity.....maybe Chucky's spam filter caught it.......anyway, I don't know "Baba O'Reiley", it isn't on my Then and Now disc.
As far as starting a new thread, we can if this page is bogging down your computer, but we shouldn't be "overloading" the page, there is another parody here with 1000+ comments and going.

By the way, I'm now the editor for the dirty and dated lyric sections, check them out sometime if you can. Don't have much time today, gotta run.. Chat later~

Didn't your comment ask something about Queensryche? I don't remember...

Well, this thread doesn't slow it down TOO much, but if there is a parody w/ over 1000, then let's keep this one going then. I was just concerned that we hit a comment-limit or something....

Down In a Hole unplugged version came on the radio yesterday; been a long while since the last time they played that particular version. I was so sure you knew Baba O' Riley; oh well, the parody wasn't widely received anyway albeit I thought it was good...eh

I'll check the dated/dirty lyrics page. What exactly do you do as editor there? Coming soon, I will have parodies of Nirvana, Def Leppard, and maybe even Avril Lavigne (as soon as I can get started writing them) So many ideas, so little time, and so very little creativity so it sometimes seems ~
Red Ant - September 16, 2005 - Report this comment
Ah yes, I remember something now: Does that Queensryche CD have lyrics with the insert? I wanted to parody "Silent Lucidity" again, and now have that song on CD in an 80s greatist hits, but it doesn't come with lyrics. Do you have the lyrics that are spoken during the solo? The only words I can make out are at the end; "Help me".

FM99 actually played not one but two AiC songs on the radio yesterday. Both were requests. The rest of the playlist wasn't bad either. Have you heard "Doesn't Remind Me" yet? That gets played on heavy rotation here.

Yeah, I might know Baba O' Reiley if I heard it but the title doesn't sound familiar. I've wanted to do "Who Are You?" and "Behind Blue Eyes" parodies for a while now but nothing is coming together.

As far as the editor job, I could tell you but I'd have to kill you. Just kidding. Since both sections are new right now I haven't received that many submissions to edit/approve.

Coming soon, I will have......hmm......um..... I don't know. I might throw down a quick one to Nirvana's "Lithium" about my job and I have 2 Simon and Garfunkel parodies in the works, both about half complete. I was even tempted to make a "Sounds Like Simon and Garfunkel" parody of "SLTS", by mashing up S&G song lyrics into that OS. First 2 lines I had:

Hello darkness, my old friend
I've come to talk to you again

The first 2 lines of The Sound of Silence scan exactly into the opening of "SLTS". Maybe an idea I'll put off a while...also, I need to look in my folder and see what I have close to finished that I got writer's block on.....I stopped counting at 50-some unfinshed parodies.

Oh, there is a Metallica parody I did of "No Leaf Clover" called "No More Fanbase?", check it out and let me know what you think.

Look foward to your parodies though if you plan on doing a "Complicated" parody, don't make it into "Constipated" or any variation thereof unless you want to get "uno-bombed". I wanted to get Avril's CD but at $20 still I'll wait a while. Chat later.~
Scrawny Johnny - September 22, 2005 - Report this comment
Sorry Red, no lyrics of the speaking parts in "Lucidity." Haven't heard "Doesn't Remind Me" on the radio but I'm 99% positive they will if I requested it (that's what's cool about non-corporate radio; they play what you WANT to hear).

I checked out your section and your No More Fanbase (see comments there). Your parody writing skills are definitely fantastico'! Muy bien!

Let me know when Lithium comes out and I will make sure you receive my votes and comments. "Under the Sea" I think I've mentioned is complete and will soon be submitted. Currently, I have 3 parody ideas going thru the drafting/idea/writing process (they are Nirvana's "On a Plain", Billy Joel's "Piano Man", and Avril Lavigne's "Complicated" which won't be about the commonly overused topic of irregularity - instead it's about a woman's life (nuff said)).

The parody ideas are overwhelming at times. I have parodies of Rob Zombie, Def Leppard, Kid Rock, Ted Nugent, possible Megadeth, even AIC (finally) all waiting to written, but time is becoming unavailable for them. I'm thinking that after my 4th round of parodies (the 4th album as I so proudly dub), I'll let the 5th be nothing but requests. I believe it's a different approach to picking specific ideas. I'll let you know more about that when the time comes.

Well gotta skee-daddle, it looks like I'm about to get rocked by some major severe weather w/ the possible threats of numerous twisters. Of course that can't be as bad as gas going back up (oh joy). Wish all us TX folk the best!

On a final note, I too enjoy Avril Lavigne, even though I'm a metal-head. No doubt her 2nd album is good if not better than the first. Nice to know someone else appreciates her music. I think it's her Canadian voice that keeps me into the songs, but who knows....~

I have the lyrics during the solo of Silent Lucidity; here they are:

Visualize your dream,
Record it in the present tense,
Put it into a permanent form,
If you persist in your efforts,
You can achieve dream control
(Dream control)
How's that then, better?
(Dream control)
(Hug me)
(Dream control)
(Hug me)
(Dream control)
(Hug me)
(Dream control)
(Hug me)

Looking foward to your new parodies. About the requests, that would be a cool idea and one that I have been toying around with as a topic for inthe00s.com; Challenge parody authors to make a parody by request. There are several ideas I have but not enough information to make the parody or an OS that for any number of reasons I can't or won't parody well that I'd like to see another run with; then again with 35000+ parodies on the site new ideas can sometimes be hard to come by for me so I'll keep the few that I have for now.

Thanks for noticing that my parody skills have improved; I've learned a whole lot from others here on what makes for a good parody. The next one I submit I think will be one of my best for syllable-to-syllable matching, rhymes, puns, story telling and NO TYPOS!!; the whole 9 yards.

I hope the hurricane doesn't cause you too many problems, though I think gas will probably be $4.00+ a gallon in a few days.

Oh, about "Complicated" if your parody is what I think it will be about it will be interesting. Chat later.

PS-Just submitted one to "Immigrant Song" by Led Zeppelin, not the one I mentioned above.

Also, made another parody of "Would?" a week or so ago.

Not to familiar with a whole lot of Zeppelin songs, and "Immigrant Song" happens to be one of them. However, there are numerous Zeppelin songs that I like, but I don't know the song titles.

Which reminds me, are there certain songs that get on your nerves but you don't really know why? For me Golden Earring's "Radar Love" and Foghat's "Slow Ride" both annoy me, and I don't have any specific reason why. What prompted this subject suddenly was that I heard both songs played today (unfortunately).

So where'd you find the Lucidity lyrics? I never could decipher the words in that part except dream control. I thought she said "love me" instead of "hug me." mm -- oh well.

Currently writing the Billy Joel parody and hoping to complete it later this month. Tell me what you think the "Complicated" parody will be about since I might have misled you to think something else (it's not *really* about the woman, but she's the driving force of the parody )

I will submit Under the Sea parody sometime this week. Later~
Red Ant - September 30, 2005 - Report this comment
On the Zeppelin songs, many have song names that are not in the parody (Immigrant Song, Over The Hills And Far Away, Black Dog, etc), or are only mentioned once in the song (Kashmir, Rock And Roll, Going To California, etc.) so it can be hard at time to remember them. I've got 2 more Zep parodies in the works, one of "When The Levee Breaks" and one of "Black Dog", and a few other titles kinda floating around.

Most songs that get on my nerves are the overplayed ones; "Slow Ride" I heard the other day and got on my nerves, seems it goes on forever repeating slight variations of "Slow Ride" (yawn...). Haven't heard "Radar Love" in a while but it isn't bad. Can't really think of any that get on my nerve for a reason that I'm unaware of though.

On Silent Lucidity, I posted on inthe00s.com 4 songs which I didn't know all of the lyrics; "indecypherable lyrics" more or less. "Bleed The Freak", "Kindergarten (Faith No More)" and the ad-libbed vocals on "Amazing (Aerosmith)". I didn't get any answers, so I did some serious searching and found the complete lyrics for "Blead The Freak" and "Silent Lucidity". The lyrics I posted ^ there had to be modified of course, slightly incomplete, and I thought the lyric was "Help Me". Oh well. I still have no idea on "Kindergarten" what the lyrics are in parts.

I will probably get a Billy Joel Greatest Hits Next Friday and perhaps Avril's CD with "Complicated" on it, I don't know the song well enough to vote yours. I have an idea for the number of "Complicated" parodies out there (at around 93 parodies I think it is second only to "American Pie" but I haven't checked that much) set to another song that has been parodied quite a bit here, but that is a long term idea for now.

As far as guessing your "Complicated" parody title, I'll just wait to see if I'm right when you post it. Look foward to the Under The Sea as well.

Have to go for now, chat later~

Just got done submitting parody #30. I think some of the pacings off in the song, but that's not a big concern for me.

Having a dry spell of creative writing. Started the Billy Joel parody and I can't seem to break past the first line. My ideas are good but it's challenging to find the right words and rhymes to fit them in.

If you plan on waiting for the Complicated parody, it'll be a while since I still have others waiting for production. That reminds me, I think it's cool that this site features a CD cover parody section. This will give me a great opportunity to actually display the so-called "albums" I have for my parodies. I already know how I want them to look it's just the matter of getting them to look like my mental image. But I won't work on those until I have more time.

On a final note, sometime this week, I'll go thru your parodies that I missed and add my input and votes. 'K? 'K. Later ~

Great parody you had there, looking foward to more. I've taken a bit of a new approach to writing; many of my older ideas half finished will remain that way indefinately. Trying to force out something just leads to more writer's block with me.

I have been on a good streak recently and will have 3 new ones tomorrow, a 2005 #1 song, and 1990s one-hit wonder and a 60s classic.

Yeah, the photograph parodies are pretty cool though I've quite an untrained eye and have zero skill with Photoshop- I'm planning on learning more about it soon.

A suggestion for the Billy Joel parody; just write down your ideas and lines you have already. The appropriate rhymes will come to you. I sometimes find myself working parodies in sections, that is I don't always start at the beginning of the song-one of my recent ones was worked from the last line to the beginning in complete reverse order.

Chat later, and when you get a chance check out some of parodies you missed. ~

Thanks for the feedback on my parody. I actually was surprised by the large turnout.

I need to ask of you for your help; this is concerning a future parody idea that I will definitely do once I get my other ideas out of the way. I need you to name some movies that have terrible, strange, confusing, crappy, or non-sensical endings. No restrictions on what kind of movie it is. Basically just any movie that had an ending that was not great. I need as many as possible to make an adequate parody. I will give you credit for your help in my parody. The help will greatly be appreciated and I hope that the parody will be widely received but it's still a ways before I can begin writing it.

Sometime this week I will start checking out the parodies I missed.

Thanks, Ant ~

Well, a parody popped into my head just from your list: "Just another crappy movie" (from The Bangles "Manic Monday..run with it if you want). Crappy or otherwise bad movies? Hmm, the movie "Contact" fits nearly all of those criteria, you should use that one. What else? "Napoleon Dynamite", "Red Planet" or any "disaster" type movie (the endings stretch beyond the plausible into the absurd) and of course, "Titanic" must be in there, I mean come on, didn't everyone know how that would end before they watched it?

You aren't trying "We Didn't Start The Fire" with this, are you? Seems like a perfect (but difficult) song to lampoon a laundry list of horrible films, maybe "You Shouldn't Watch These Movies, they go from sappy to the really crappy".

Oh, I got St. Anger, the drums aren't that horrible but the lyrics lack badly (and no solos), giving it a listen this weekend- you might see a new Metallica parody soon....
Red Ant - October 17, 2005 - Report this comment
I submitted 3 new ones over the weekend, including a parody of "Frantic" that took all of 15 minutes due to copy/haste (in keeping with what Metallica did). "St. Anger" is done as well and took more time to download and complete the lyrics than to actually write the parody, I'll release that in a few days.

BTW, Track #11(All Within My Hands) will not play on my computer CD player, not that I really want to listen to 11minutes+ more of cookie-cutter music.

Hey, Ant, I apologize for my temporary absence from this thread; college is really taking its toll on me. Too much to do and almost not enough time.

Besides my usual excuses, thanks for the movie ideas. Keep em comin'. I need as much as I can get. Actually, this ideas pertain to another Avril parody (of a song you might have heard). So far, I can only think of Cast Away and The Terminal, both of which had endings that were not expected, but nevertheless, the movies are still enjoyable.

On another note, I will eventually get to all your parodies. Time has been in short supply, but you have not been forgotten (what little time I had, I used on your recent parodies - Dilldough (hilarious), Possum Sugar Omelet, and Lyrics?)

By the way, thanks for your generous votes and comments on my friend's parody of Battery a few days ago (Phony Tony is his name). Anyway, he's a good friend I hang out with every weekend and one day he decided to write a parody. I didn't know he was serious until he called me tonight asking if I read it. It was nice to know you gave him a warm welcome. He hasn't decided if he wants to continue submitting more, but he will base his decision on the feedback he receives. Who knows, there might be a duet parody in the near future! Anyways, thanks

It's getting late, and more schoolwork becons me to wake up nice and early...oh joy. I will check your parodies soon enough. Until later ~

Well, I submitted a parody of "Invisible Kid" today called "Metallica's Skid". And it took me longer than 10 minutes to parody it, even though I used copy/paste about 15 times in the song. I think you'll find it hilarious.

My completed album will be called "St. Anguish" and will include "No More Fanbase", and possibly "Stinkin' Breath" , "Lapped By Him Twice", and probably a parody of Enter Sandman called "Enter Trashcan", haven't started that one yet. Not sure if my streaking parodies will be on there or a separate album-it would take me longer to parody "Whiplash" probably than the entire St. Anger CD has so far.

I'm starting on "My World" tomorrow, the two titles I have are "Midol" and "Might Hurl", not sure which I'll choose.

About Phony Tony, good parody with "Cup Of Tea". He should write more. Chat later.~

My Billy Joel parody is coming along nicely and I *hope* to have it done by the middle of next month. I'm also working on my Nirvana parody simultaneously. Which all this reminds me...before the Thanksgiving holidays, I'm taking a break from submitting parodies. Right now, the parody bank is dry, I have two in the works, and over 10+ ideas in my head. This break will allow me to solely focus on parody-writing. Just giving you the heads-up, however, I'll still be a frequent visitor (perhaps more frequent than I have been, ha ha).

Tonight, I had some free time in class, so I gave you some extra votes on the first five-six parodies on your list. Comments I will add later.

I noticed you have "St. Anguish" almost complete...does this mean that "Streak 'Em All" is almost done? I agree with you - Whiplash is lot more complicated than all St. Anger. That reminds me, I do have a parody idea of the song "St. Anger" that I will write during my temporary leave.

Back on the subject of your parodies, you have some good stuff. You've certainly come a long way since you started and not to knock on your old stuff, but your recent material is much more polished, for lack of a better word. Just wanted to continue the support.

This weekend is full of concerts - Friday, I will be attending a Kansas/Foreigner/Styx concert followed by DEF LEPPARD the very next night (tickets were at an unbelievable price of $4.20!!! But that's also b/c U2 is playing the same night on the other side of town which is soaking up most of the ticket sales...)

Keep sending ideas of anymore bad movies. I've changed it from being bad endings to just bad movies which allows for more ideas.

Well, I best get going to bed, gots work and school. Later ~

I still haven't got that Billy Joel Greatest Hits yet, but I should by the time you have your parody done.

St. Anger is completed and submitted, I included "No More Fanbase?" and "Stinking Breath" along with MIDIs for them. Left out "Lapped By Him Twice". There is some narrative in the album, it's a bit more than a collection of URLs.

As far as "Streak 'Em All" goes, I haven't worked on that in months, I may start up again shortly.

Yeah, I'd say my recent stuff is more polished too, i.e. much better pacing than older works, less typos, etc.

New ideas, I still have quite a few in mind, including a few more AiC songs and a half-finished parody of Audioslave's "Be Yourself".

Enjoy the concerts, it isn't often you get to see a line-up like that.

As far as more bad movies, google this: "100 Worst Films"; the second listing gives in-depth reviews to some of the most horrible movies made.

Well, Def Leppard put on an exhilirating performance. Kansas and the others the night before were, eh, ok. I can't wait for Metallica to roll back into town, but that probably won't be until late 06 or maybe 07.

I'm going to stop on the Billy Joel parody and solely work on the Nirvana one and try to get it finished before the Thanxgivn' holidays.So the Billy Joel may not be seen for several months (this is so I can get some ideas flowing again). However, I thought up some great Def Leppard parodies that may or may not see the light of day.

It's been a long weekend, and it's going to be an even longer week. Didja get any good candy for Halloween? We might be too old (note the key word "might") to go trick-or-treating, but that shouldn't stop us from getting a barrage of candy. Just tonight I made myself sick with Snickers and my fav, Twix. mmmm....

Well, I must go, I have a cartoon to finish drawing for my college newspaper and some more Snickers to eat. mmmmm PS - Good idea on the "100 worst films," it was quite helpful. I plan to get the parody written during my temporary leave of absence ~

Dude, it's illegal in VA to go trick or treating after you turn 14! You can of course dress up and go as an escort but door-to-door is reserved for the kids. The only candy I got was what the kids didn't get and since I had a whopping 2 kids stop by the house I made out pretty good.

I finally did another Alice in Chains parody, it should be up tomorrow. You might see a Nirvana parody as well tomorrow from me, it isn't "Lithium" though.

Oh yeah? Well here in Dallas it's illegal to own realistic dill-doughs (so your song is banned here) [source: dumblaws.com].

But this is my favorite TX-state law:

When two trains meet each other at a railroad crossing, each shall come to a full stop, and neither shall proceed until the other has gone.

Fortunately, for all us drivers, I see this law broken numerous times.
Red Ant - November 05, 2005 - Report this comment
I stand corrected; according to two sites "Children are not to go trick-or-treating on Halloween." I've never heard that enforced at all.

That is a pretty messed-up law you have there in TX.

You mentioned cartoons; what do you draw? I had an idea for a comic strip called "Ghetto Bell" about Taco Bell and fast food chains in general. I had the text but since I can't even draw a decent stick fiqure that's as far as it got. Here's an example:
[Cashier at Ghetto Bell]: What chu want?
[Customer at drive-thru]: Do you have steak supreme enchiladas?
[Cashier]: Is that s*** on da menu?
[Customer at drive thru]: I couldn't hear you, the radio was breaking up
[Cashier]: Well I's cans hears yous just fine even over that s***ty music yous blastin'. Pull around, beeyatch!

It basically was about how fast food workers who make minimum wage really think sometimes but can't act out on it or they would get fired. You'd be surprised that even some managers on occasion think this way about customers.

I haven't been to a concert in a while, the last one was a disaster. OzFest had been there the week before when it was raining heavily and the fans tore up the field area and left trash, blankets etc. When we went there the next week they had changed policies and were no longer allowing anyone to carry in anything to sit on. We bought an 8 dollar pizza just to use the cardboard box as a seat on the mud since they also didn't bother to re-sod the field. We would have stood but it was a 12 hour long concert with over a dozen bands on 2 stages. Anyway, chat later~

12 hours at a concert? mm...I couldn't do it. Then again, I don't want to go to Ozzfest. Not that I don't like Ozzy, I just don't like the hectic, crammed, smoky and sweaty and smelly atmosphere of 100,000 weirdos all around me (kind of ironic figuring I went to TX Motor Speedway tonite for the NASCAR race...but that's different)

I draw some weird stuff...stuff like The Far Side or Bizarro. In middle school, I was known for my crazy comic about the misunderstood Tiki-God and one about our school principal eating little kids on a McDonald's playground (long story). It would be fun to post them up since drawing comics is much more my specialty than parody writing (which has always and will be a side-project). "Ghetto Bell"...I like that. I've always wondered myself what those fast-food cashiers think about us. You could expand on those ideas up there poking fun at the order-radios that always have static so you can never hear the total. Or why they continue to build restaurants with two windows but never use the second one! So many avenues to go with that topic....finish writing the script is all I can really say

Well, I'm dead-tired. All that racin' wore me out. Later ~
Red Ant - November 11, 2005 - Report this comment
Well, if (when) I come up with more ideas I'll post them. I pretty much abandoned writing cartoons scripts because of my aformentioned ineptitude at drawing. I have a fair number of better stories than that one, including bathroom jokes/humor, people doing "adult" things in the walk-in freezers, closing time antics, pranks, running soap opera gossip stuff, etc etc.

I'm taking a short break from writing as well, maybe a two weeks tops. I have quite a few unfinished parodies including some from as far back as April that I'll see if I can't complete. Also, many new ideas but I don't remember the OS exactly so I'll be buying some more music. I'll leave you with another "Ghetto Bell" cartoon (Dining Room Scene):

[Customer]: ARRGH! WHAT THE .....
[Cashier]: Hey, shut up in there....
[Customer]: There's a cockroach in my taco!
[Cashier]: What chu complainin' 'bout? I didn't charge you for it!
[Customer]: I want to see the manager, NOW! {then pukes on floor}
[Cashier]: Oh, dayumn! Another ones' dun tossed his cookies on the floor, and we just mopped it last month!

That is a purely fictional story there. Anway, chat later~

...And I'm still not done looking over your parodies that I've missed (which I know there are a lot - I just need some time so maybe over the holiday break)

So I haven't forgot! I'm eager to see what all I've missed.

On a non-related note, I've heard FNM's "Epic" for the first time on the radio this week - twice. Man, that's such a kick-ass song and I have it stuck in my head. FNM is definitely a band I'm going to add to my ever-growing library. Y'know, you oughta do a parody of "Epic"....~
Red Ant - November 19, 2005 - Report this comment
I'll be on the lookout for them. I have a long week next week including 2 16 hour days so I may not be around much until next Monday.

I was going to parody "Epic" a while ago (I think I mentioned that about 40 comments up) but given how few people here know any FNM songs (though if you were to know one, Epic would be it) and the song difficulty I think I'll pass. I have two FNM parodies half-finished, "Smaller and Smaller" and "Kindergarten" (from the Angel Dust CD) that will remain that way indefinitely due to being too obscure OSs.

I submitted a new one to Coldplay's "Fix You" last night, I hope you know TOS or at least Coldplay's "style". Chat later, and don't red-light that high-school crush!

As you may or may not have noticed, I visited some of your parodies that I have not yet seen or have not seen in a while. I skipped the songs I don't know, but there should be a comment on each one, starting from the first, whether it be new or old. I did add new votes even if my old comment is there.

Due to the overwhelming stress of semester exams and final projects, I was unable to finish my parodies. I am close, however, but it will be a while before I can get back to them. So, I am going on my 3-month vacation and won't release a parody until Feb. This will give me time to catch up on everything I need and want to do. I will still check up around here to see what's going on and of course to keep this thread going.

Hope you had a good Thanksgiving. I know I did.

I established successful contact with my old high-school crush/ drag-car racer. I happened to find her e-mail on a class-reunion website (sorta like classmates.com). If you wanna see a couple pictures of her, go to this address --

It's still hard for me to believe that me and her used to share a geometry class together. I got her autograph in my yearbook! Well, I better head to bed....I have holiday cartoons to submit to the college paper tomorrow.

Almost done with the Billy Joel parody, almost done with the Nirvana, and almost done with final college work. I'll be so glad when it's all over with.

So how cold did it get up there? Just last Saturday, we hit a record 91* for a December day, but now, we're seeing temperatures in the upper teens. That's TX weather for ya.

I haven't heard back from Julie in a while. Probably busy enjoying off-season. She's just as attractive if not more than she was back in high school 3 years ago.

I'm still not done looking over the rest of your parodies. I'll probably get back to those sometime next week. I've noticed you released some Beatles parodies. Unfortunately, I know very few Beatles songs. However, I like the song "I Am the Walrus." Never heard Sgt. Pepper, but I've been told it's one their best. I'll check into it.

Epic is being played again...that song for some reason has been in heavy rotation on the radio the past three weeks. Maybe a resurgent of popularity, kind of like how the song "Rooster" was enjoying frequent airplay back during the spring/ early summer.

That's about all that's been going on in this part of the world. I have the next lineup of parody ideas for the 4th album (which I have not given a name yet) some of which include parodies of GnR, Scorpions, Def Leppard, and my old parody idea of Ballroom Blitz (which is a cool song). Until later ~

Hmm, it has gotten to freezing already and we had some light snow, but right now it is raining and about 60 degrees.

When are you going to release those parodies? I hope to see them before next year.

Oh, btw, my hard drive started to fail the other day, I nearly lost all of the partial parodies I was working on, and 3 completed ones I had not yet submitted. I'd recommend you save everything you write on floppy disks/CDs and perhaps print out all of your works as well.

As for the parodies you've missed, I've amassed quite a few now, my 181st is already submitted for tomorrow. Yeah, all of The Beatles parodies I have are from the #1 CD. Also have done 4 Pink Floyd now, all from The Wall live.

Do you know any Simon & Garfunkel? If not, I would recommend the Greatest Hits "Short" Version that has 13 or 14 songs on it. My parody of "Bridge Over Troubled Water" placed 3rd in October SOTM.

I haven't listened to the radio that much recently, instead buying greatest hits CDs from The Beatles, Eagles, Elton John, BTO, etc. I even got Avril Lavigne's CD "Let Go" used for 5$. As for Faith No More, I still love them but at the moment have zero interest in parodying another song of theirs.

I am thinking of doing Mad Season again, either "River of Deceit" of "Above", but it may be many months from now.

Look foward to the next album, and I too have several GNR parody ideas, including a possible complete album for "Appetite For Destruction". I also have Def Leppard's Greatist Hits so I will more than likely know your parody once it is released. Chat later~

I know for a fact that not only can i do a parody to any of these songs mentioned, i can do good ones. i feel that everyone is of equal capability and given that into consideration anyone who is poetic in the least with minor music theory background and mastery of basic instrumental skills could not only parody any of these songs lyrically, but crank out on their own home pc no less (with modern audio recording technology) a full-on masterpiece of a parody/cover song. I enjoy what you people are doing here and the music you choose to do it with, but it struck an odd chord with me to read about Faith No More's "Epic" as being difficult to work with. I don't know if you feel this is out of line please let me know. I of course am fully willing to at any time parody any song of anyone's choosing as long as it's a fairly known song that we can rake enough opinions in on to see if others agree. good luck all poets/musicians from one to all others.
Red Ant - January 08, 2006 - Report this comment
Hi Jacob. SJ and I have discussed many songs on this thread, many of which we have already done. Locomotive by GNR and the instrumental pieces I mentioned, while not impossible, are quite difficult songs to parody. "316" by Van Halen is 13 minutes of insanity on guitar and could take months to parody well, and the end result would probably get little feedback, which is why I scrapped the idea.

As for "Epic", the problem I've run into with my other FNM parodies is that no one seems to remember or know TOS, a shame given how good FNM was. "Epic" *shouldn't* have that problem. As for difficulty, no, it isn't that difficult a song to do, save varying the "It's it (what is it?)" outro to keep a readers interest and possibly some of the rhyming. Out of line? Not at all.

If you want to parody Epic or any other song mentioned on this thread then by all means go for it. Good luck and good day to you too.

Yeah, I completely forgot to release it, and the only reason I haven't done so yet is because I temporarily misplaced it in my messy room. It may be sometime this week. I'll let you know whenever I've finally submitted it.

Mr. Jacob, if you are willing to do any song of anyone's choice, I suggest Weird Al's "Albuquerque" the 11 minute long song about an off-the-wall story of a guy who lives in his favorite town. Someone once did it on Harry Potter and it was quite the feat.

Mr. Ant, you are one away from 200. I congratulate you on creating 199 parodies in less than a year. And I only have 31 in my TWO years here! Oh well, I've been doing a lot of cartoons lately which are my true calling. Speaking of cartoons, did you ever watch Chip N' Dale Rescue Rangers or DuckTales??
Red Ant - January 09, 2006 - Report this comment
Well, I'm going to have number 200 submitted in a day or two. The intro comment is not yet to my liking.

How did you manage to lose (I mean temporarily misplace) your parody? While pen and paper are still a great idea, anything more than a title I put into my computer as a partial parody. Now that I have a new computer with back ups a hard drive failure will not be a problem should it occur again, save the hassle of getting it fixed.

As for those cartoons I'm batting .000, most of what I watched was Transformers, GI Joe and older Disney cartoons. I do have an idea for a Beavis & Butthead parody and as soon as I locate a MP3 for it I'll make it. I catch the occasional South Park or Drawn Together now and other cartoon shows like King of the Hill and The Simpsons. Chat later.

I lost my parody by accidentaly burying under a pile of other papers (like old cartoons, random sketches, obscure ideas messily scribbled down, etc.). I always write my parodies b/c usually pen and paper is all I have access to at work, and whenever I'm home, my creativity gets distracted on other fun little things. But as you can see, I found my parody late last night when I happened to move the pile of papers (room's still a mess though)

Congratulations on parody #200. You'll probably be a #430 by the end of this year (I'll remember that!)

The reason I ask about the cartoons is b/c Chip N' Dale and DuckTales have *finally* come out on DVD, which both reminded me as I was watching them of an old parody idea I had originally scrapped. But now with the resurgence of these old cartooons (that to this day I still enjoy - especially TaleSpin), I'm going to write that parody. I tell more about when I have a beginning. Besides, I still have a Nirvana parody to finish (which is over 50% complete)

On a final note, again congratulations on your 200th parody. Anyone can write up to 100, but to double that is an accomplishment worth recognizing, at least I think so. Probably in 2015, I'll finally be at 200, but by then I'm sure you'll be at 2 million or something like that! Later ~

It's an AiC bootleg (there are about 50 of them) with the Live version of Confusion on it (only 2 bootlegs have that song). I've not been able to find it at all. Also, there is a video of one of AiC' 1991 concerts that I'd love to have.

Good to hear that Nirvana parody is done. Can't wait to see it. I have one in for tomorrow called "Sleep" to a Lambretta song "Creep".

Ok, here's the story...one of my favorite cartoons as a kid was Disney's "TaleSpin" and as a Christmas present from my friend, he downloaded all the episodes and burned them to CD. This was one of the greatest gifts I've ever received; to relive that incredible show from my childhood. Well, I read from several fansites that there is a **rare** TaleSpin soundtrack that was made for promotional-use only. This soundtrack was never made to be sold to the public, and only about 50 were made -- hence the **rareness**. Just on a whim, I looked it up on eBay, and to my surprise there it was - the TaleSpin soundtrack!! Immediately, I joined in. Only one person placed a bid for about $175 so I upped by 10 dollars. I was unchallenged and won the bid. After the shipping, it came out to be $195, which is fairly inexpensive since the CD is valued at $500!! It just arrived two days ago and it is in *perfect* condition - not a single scratch or mark or fingerprint, nothing. I burned a copy of it, so now I listen to the copy and have the real thing stored away safely.

Oh, and is the music good? You bet! It's all the background orchestrations heard in the show.

So that's my story on the $200 CD. I hope I didn't bore you, but my excitement is hard to contain. As far as the AIC bootleg, keep looking, cause you just never know!

Yes, I will release the Nirvana parody soon, right now I'm about 70% done with my Weird Al parody (it's a short song). After that, I will commence work on that bad-movie parody I talked about months ago ~

Oh, here's a tip that I thought I'd share for when I get a bad/stupid/sucky idea for a song: Write it, (but don't post it) otherwise the idea will float around in your head and stagnate the good ideas from coming. That's my wild theory anyway.

Well, thanks for the comments on the Nirvana parody. I still don't like it when a parody gets swamped by 625,000 entries. Oh well...

I apologize, but I do not know that Madonna song. I read it, but didn't recognize the tune. It was funny, but I can't honestly vote. Maybe in the future.

On a non-related note, while watching the Daytona 500 prerace show, they discussed the seriousness of bump drafting and why it should be policed. During that segment they showed spectacular wrecks and driver commentary and all the while AIC's "Whale and Wasp" was playing in the background, setting the mood of the segment. I thought that was really cool since "Whale and Wasp" in my opinion is one of the best rock instrumentals ever. In another segment, they played "Rain When I DIe" which is also another cool song. ~

Wow, sorry I've been over a month responding to this thread. They played two AiC' songs during a NASCAR pre-race? Ugh, I missed them. I found out during Daytona that Ricky Rudd (my favorite driver) retired in the off season. I have to admit he wasn't really competitive anymore, but I was hoping he would carry the Ironman record to 900 consecutive races (at least 2 more seasons).

As for bad movies, I saw "The Core" on TV yesterday. Wow did it suck big time. The ship was made from "unobtainium"; that word is more or less a metalurgical joke for any rare and/or extremely expensive metal. The rest of the movie was downhill from there, no wonder it flopped in the box office. Actually, the ending was the best part; the movie was over!

I've got some more editing duties now, so my parody time is not as much as before. I am working on a monster parody off and on; the song has 30 verses and no choruses. I've written out 13 verses but no rush. Anyways, chat later. ~

No big deal on the lateness...we all have busy lives. Except for now, I'm on spring break from college, and I'm just trying to make the most of it.

Speaking of parodies, the Weird Al one is done and I'll probably submit later tonight, and am currently working on the bad-ending parody. It's only 50% done. The song I chose for this parody is difficult to work with and I'm having trouble with the 2nd stanza. No worries, I feel it'll be done by the end of March. The parody I mean, not the 2nd stanza.

Hope you didn't forget to wear green today as it's St. Patrick's Day! With green as my favorite color, this day should be no sweat. However, I'm still too young to knock back a cold one for today, but on March 8 of NEXT year, I'll be able to. I guess I'll knock back a few Pepsi 's (how do you spell Pepsi in plural form? - Pepsis? Looks like it would say "pep-sis" Anyway, I'm gettin' off track). Please be careful though if you do go out to drink! Remember, no driving!!

Too bad for Ricky. The only way he would've stayed is if he got to ride of Rusty's car. Ricky REALLY wanted that #2 car, but Kurt Busch took over that seat, which made up Rick's mind. I'm just hoping Jr. will perfom better this year than last and B. Labonte get that famed #43 in victory lane. ~

I hope you enjoyed Spring Break - that's not a time of year I take off from work anymore.

What happened to your Weird Al parody? Did I miss it or did you decide to polish it up some more?

As for the plural of Pepsi, I'm guessing it is "Pepsis" (never use apostrophes when denoting plural, heh heh), though it might be considered plural as is. I don't drink anymore, so you don't have to worry.

As for your temporary retirement, I hope it is temporary. I cringe every time I hear someone mention leaving for a while, but I know you've got a lot of college things to do as well as work.

Typical summer weather here; hot, humid and stagnant, with the occasional freak thunderstorm. As for what I've been doing, I got some recording equipment so you will hear from me when I get the bugs worked out.

Hmm, lots of parodies you've missed, but see if you remember TOS to this one:

You'll have to remove any hyphens ( "-") in that URL when you copy/paste it or it won't work. It's the first Chris Cornell parody here. I was trying to do Jerry Cantrell's "Leave Me Alone" (from The Cable Guy Soundtrack), but nothing is coming to mind.

Yeah, typical TX weather arrived about a month and a half ago and it's been nuthin' but 90+ degree days (I think only 1 or 2 100 degree days).

Thanks for the kind responses to my Crappy Ending parody. Truthfully, I expected more votes, however, I expected those votes to be below 5s for pacing and funniness. I'm currently writing 3 parodies at once, something I've never done before. I'm still enjoying semi-retirement which somehow boosted my creativity for these parodies...SWEET!

There's a rumor going around here among my metal-head friends (such as myself) that Metallica will be releasing another album sometime around summer of 2007. To only sweeten the rumor, Metallica has promised it won't sound like St. Anger, but more like their old stuff from RtL thru aJ4all. Well, I'm not getting my hopes up, b/c St. Anger was supposedly derived from their RtL roots and nothing from RtL I felt was present. Anyways, just a crazy rumor...(of course, it would be nice if they came back to Dallas sometime soon).

In other sad news, my favorite rock station 93.3 the Bone has underwent a re-formatting. It used to be hard rock/ metal, but now it's just plain o' classic rock like Eric Clapton, and Phil Collins. They still play an occasional hard rock song, but only popular ones (Rock You Like a Hurricane, Pour Sugar on Me, Crazy Train, etc etc...). Used to, the Bone played any and everything from AC/DC to ZZ Top, even rarites and B-sides. They didn't care, just so long as it rocked your ass off. Heck, even Ted Nugent AND Sammy Hagar both said the Bone was the best rock station they have ever listened to! Sammy was a frequent caller and guest on the station! But now it's own by a corporation that THINKS it knows what I want to hear. Makes me so mad. It's like I lost a longtime friend....

Enough of all that corporate BS. It's good to keep this thread going, even if it has been 6 weeks. Good luck on that dayshift! Now if you excuse me, I have to go remove my TX Motor Speedway license plate off my car so I won't get pulled over again about it! ~

Wow, man, seven weeks have gone by so quickly. I haven't had much time off: speaking of which, I don't even remember my last day off - I think it was around the middle of July. Anyways, work has been beyond hectic as of late; we completely remodeled/rebuilt 5 rooms, as well as fixed numerous other fairly major problems at the hotel in the last month, all while hella busy with normal guests. The military is there now, and there are no spare rooms, so any problems have to be fixed ASAP.

I will get a day off on the 16th, which is my b-day, and again at the end of the month I'm taking three days off for Nicole and mine's (grammar?) third wedding anniversary.

The weather has cooled here; we had several days above 100*, with 115* heat indices.

As for Metallica, I wil not buy their new album until I hear at least 3 songs from it that totally rock. St. Anger was such a let down that, after I made my album from it, I used the discs as drink coasters.

Speaking of bands getting back together, Alice in Chains is playing a limited European tour right now. I believe the new lead singer is William Duvall (from "Comes With The Fall"). I managed to partially download "Man in the Box", feat. MJK from Tool on vocals, and it was pretty darned good. If I know AiC, they won't tour with a guy who doesn't/can't sound like Layne, so if they make a new CD, I will snatch it up.

Phil Collins is NOT classic rock. ;-)

I don't have much time to listen to the radio, but FM99 and 106.9 The Fox are still going good; there is another station now (I think it's 100.5) that plays really hard stuff - it's not uncommon to hear Slayer and Pantera on there. Fortunately, none of these three have sold out, and they play nearly anything a guy could want to hear.

One final note: I remember you saying a while ago on "The Four Streakers" that it would be cool if a Metallica parody won SOTM. Well, one didn't, but I did win the June SOTM contest with "Spamming Pests". I haven't forgotten about my "Streak 'em All" album project though; it'll probably be done by the end of the year. ~

Whoa...it's been months since I've been here, and I have good reasons why, too. First and foremost, I have been excuriatingly busy and haven't had much time to write parodies. Since that Damn Yankees parody, I've only written 1 and 1/2 parodies. I still have ideas on hold that have been on hold since early 2005. Alas, they WILL be written SOMEday, I just don't know when that is. I've been out of town (many, many times), I've been trying to get my Honda fixed of some irritating idling problem (it's fixed now), I'm trying to get my cartooning off the ground, and I think I'll stop there before I ramble on nonstop. I don't know if you even check this thread anymore since I've been neglected Amiright for months on end, but hopefully, by some miraculous random chance, you will check. I'll try and flag you down on your next parody or something. On another subject, I have set up one of those MySpace accounts and I am slowly fixing it up to my liking. I don't know if you like the MySpace craze, but if you want to know a little more about the mysterious and semi-intriguing "Scrawny Johnny," run by and look for Metal-Head Miles (oh, and despite what my profile says, I'm not really black - I put that as an inside joke) In closing, let me mention that in Sept, I saw Queensryche in concert, and they performed both Operation: Mindcrime albums and Jet City Woman as the encore (but no Silent Lucidity...) Last week, I saw Motley Crue and Aerosmith in San Antonio. It was an awesome show just as I predicted (but due to the stage setup, it was not possible for Tommy Lee to do his famous spinning-drum set-up thingy, whatever) Anyways, hopefully you'll check this soon enough. Please excuse my extremely tardy reply. Later ~

See?

It's been so long, I forgot about the BREAK html code to separate paragraphs rather than use the ENTER button

I apologize if the above comment was nearly impossible to read ~

Yeah, I still check this thread; I check nearly all URLs now looking for spam as part of my editing duty. I missed the revamped AiC concert less than 50 miles from here, so I wasn't happy about that. Anyway, not a lot has changed since we chatted last.

I do have a MySpace account, though I don't plan on doing much with it. I'll try to remember to check out your profile in the next few days.

Glad to hear you got you Honda fixed; they are pretty reliable and are not prone to too many bad failures.

I haven't worked at all on finishing the "Streak 'Em All" album, though I haven't abandoned it yet. I've slowed down my posting rate quite a bit recently; I think I've written only 20 parodies or so in the past 5 months. If you get time, check out "Prove Yourself." Chat later, Jack.~

DKTOS. If it was on the one AiC CD I have, my computer crashed and I lost it...sorry.

Well, I'm glad you still check this. I try to regularly check this site, but now that I have cable internet (oh, the speed!), I can do it with ease.

I hope you had a good Christmas and new year. I have been looking forward to 2007 since late October. So far, everything is well.

I finally have two parodies done (yippee...) one of which I will submit this week.

And that's about all the news I have for now! ~

Out of the ordinary, I remembered about our lengthy conversation here on That Throne. I'm curious if you still check it. I'm a cartoonist now, a profession I gushed about in prior comments above. I still listen to heavy metal and classic rock. I still own a $195 soundtrack (!) Also, I'm back to parody writing! Hope all is well for you old friend. Maybe, you'll check this thread on a whim, and respond back as well. How cool would that be, after seven years? ~ J (aka SJ)
