Slipknot – Eyeless

Hi there! It’s a shame really, it’s been so long since I’ve listened to Slipknot, but after listening to Eyeless yesterday, I just knew I needed to get it out here. So, here is Eyeless off the album Slipknot (1999). Here are the lyrics.

I think the intro is brilliant, the guitar riffs are rough and cool, and the programming  and drums are awesome. The tempo of the song is really fast, and that makes the song even more aggressive in addition to the screaming and the lyrics. There’s a lot of swearing, anger and attitude as you can hear: “Insane – am I the only motherfucker with a brain?” “Better get away from me, stay the fuck away from me!“. I also really like the part where Corey screams “mother fucker” and the whole song goes into a sort of “slow motion” for the last half-a-minute. Great song to rock out to if you want to express some anger, and in the end, at least I felt a little relieved of my anger.


“Insane – am I the only motherfucker with a brain?
I’m hearing voices but all they do is complain
How many times have you wanted to kill
Everything and everyone – say you’ll do it but never will”
(Eyeless – Slipknot)




Paramore – Playing God

Hey! Now it’s time for a review of the song Playing God by Paramore. It was published in 2009 on the album Brand New Eyes. Here are the lyrics, and the music video:

The lyrics have an attitude, but because of the music, it doesn’t come across as strong as with heavier guitar riffs and more aggressive drums. The song is sort of quiet, but the music video say so much, that it seems right that it is. The music video certainly match the song. Hayley is disguised as a sweet housewife, but really has poisoned and kidnapped the rest of the band, like the lyrics are disguised by the not-so-hard tone of the song. I don’t know if any of that really makes any sense, but I like the song, and that makes sense to me at least.


“Next time you point a finger I might have to bend it back or break it, break it off
Next time you point a finger, I’ll point you to the mirror”
(Playing God – Paramore)


12 Stones – Enemy

Hey!  Today’s song will be Enemy by 12 Stones. The song was published on the EP The Only Easy Day Was Yesterday (2010). The lyrics are here (though a little grammatical incorrect), and the song is below:

When taking a stand against judgmental people, people who has made up their mind about you before even knowing your name, this song fits perfectly. “So you think you know who I am? You ain’t seen nothin yet”. Makes me want to show all those little bitches what I really stand for. I think the guitar riffs are good, and Paul preforms the lyrics with the attitude that they deserve.


“Now, don’t show your teeth to me. 
It won’t hide the fears that are growing underneath your see-through pride”
(Enemy – 12 Stones)



Hey! Today’s song is Love Bites (So Do I) by Halestorm. The song was published on their new album, The Strange Case Of… (2012).  The lyrics are here, and the music video is below:

I really enjoy the lyrics to this song. They have such an attitude, and Lzzy sings them with such attitude, in a strange way it makes me a little more proud to be a woman. Lzzy has a voice that really suits singing in a rock band.
The drum beat gives the song such a high tempo, and drives the song so fast forward, that it gives the song an extra edge. I also liked the guitar solo, though it’s a little short for me, but then again, there’s beat driving the song forward. No time for stretched-out guitar solos!
The music video isn’t that special, except for the way Arejay handles his drums. Oh, well…


“I know a thousand ways to help you forget about her
That bitch can eat her heart out
Love bites, but so do I, so do I”
(Love Bites (So Do I) – Halestorm)


Hey there! Apologies for not blogging in a terribly long time! Now, today’s post will be about Brick By Boring Brick by Paramore. The song was published in 2009 on the album Brand New Eyes, and was the second single off the album. Here are the lyrics to the song.


This is a song with a little attitude, and it tells a story. It has so much power, even if it doesn’t seem so complicated, Hayley’s voice gives off a lot of power, along with the drums and guitars. Even the meaningless humming gives off power and attitude.

The music video seems very sweet at first, but turns out to be pretty dark, especially the end, despite the bright colors. (Also, weird seeing Hayley with blond hair!)
“Go get your shovel, and we’ll dig a deep hole to bury the castle”. A creative way to tell someone tho forget the thoughts about a perfect life, living like a princess. At least that’s what I get out of the song lyrics.


“If it’s not real, you can’t hold it in your hand, you can’t feel it with your heart, and I won’t believe it.
Well if it’s true you can see it with your eyes, even in the dark, and that’s where I want to be.”

(Brick By Boring Brick – Paramore)
