Glen Drover Changes Band’s Name To Something Lame

Glen Drover

Drunk news! Scotch, scotch, scotch. I am Ron Burgundy. The Ron Burgundy of metal. If you think about it, the similarities are there.

Canada Wants To Dissuade Bands From Playing There

"Oh Canada, don't be so fucking lame"

This is beyond fucked up, and good lookin’ out to Sean Harris for picking up on this yesterday. My bad not posting about it until now.
