Either that, or they’ve never heard real music before — bands like Opeth, Mastodon, Watain, or any of the other bands that get the love here on Gun Shy Assassin — and so they still think Limp Bizkit is cutting-edge stuff.
Believe it or not, more than 27,000 copies of Limp Bizkit’s first new album in more than a decade were sold last week to people who have taste, but only in their mouth. That means more than 27,000 people — living in this deplorable fucking economy — figured $20 was a wiser investment than, say, a small baggie of greenery. Or half a tank of gas. Or a large pizza with every kind of topping.
SoundScan revealed the latest sales figures this morning, and Gold Cobra opened at #16 on the Billboard Top 200 album sales chart
Who are you people? I don’t know a single person who bought this record. At least anyone who bought it and was dumb enough to tell me. Fucking Limp Bizkit, huh? Really? I’ve said it once, and I’ll say it again: Most people are not smart. That’s just indisputable. Most people are dumb. I, for one, am shocked and appalled.
