In what may be the weakest beef since Five Finger Death Punch’s frontman called out Black Veil Brides, Europe has called out us media types for misrepresenting the truth.
And they’ve gone about it in a very polite way.
“So,” writes Europe online. “A Swedish band called Sabaton has gone platinum in Sweden, selling 40,000 units [of their latest album, Carolus Rex]. Nice one, lads!”
See? Polite. Congratulate Sabaton, but…then draw the blood.
“However, the media statement suggesting they are the first Swedish hard rock band ever to do so is a little ill-advised,” says Europe.
“Or, could it be we were ‘punk’d’ back in the ’80s when presented with platinum discs for The Final Countdown? No, wait! Ashton Kutcher wasn’t even born back then!”
That’s not funny.
“Ah, the 80′s! The days when stonewashed denim was cool, and platinum meant 100,000…!,” the band concludes.
Nice dig there.
Sabaton, and the media, have yet to respond, so let me do so. Hey Europe…we all just forgot about you. Sometimes, you just forget.
Now that you’ve cleared the record, chill the fuck out.
You’re easily forgettable. It’s just science.
