God, this was so fun.
As anybody in the Metal universe knows, the release of Machine Head’s brand new clunker “Do Or Die”, has caused an absolute shitstorm. Between the extremely childish “beef” that ensued between frontman Robb Flynn and Edsel Dope, to the band’s own fans turning on them, to Flynn’s remarkably poor grammar in his Instagram tirades, it’s been a long week for Machine Head fans. And here to break it all down is yours truly.
The main goal of this video was to point out all the things that are wrong with “Do or Die” that nobody else seemed to catch, amidst the (admittedly) highly entertaining level of petty in the various fan reactions to this track.
Also, if you’re a Machine Head fan, I’ve published a lot of content on the band. Be sure to check out my Catharsis review, my Machine Head Discography Ranking, the Name That Machine Head Song segment, and other rants where I respond to Flynn’s often politically-charged lyrics.
