With Fix Your Face, Dillinger Escape Plan devastated my balls. Here was a song so intense, it vibrated my man-bits back to the future where they are probably kissing their own mother and changing the past as we speak. But it was worth it. I was content to live out the rest of my life as a eunuch. And then Black Bubble Gum leaked.
Here is a song so disappointing, so un-Dillinger, it molded the loose skin left by my vacated testicles into a makeshift vagina (think those fuzzy alien creatures from The Muppets.) The band seems to be continuing its efforts to include some more “commercially viable” material on each record, a trend that began on Miss Machine with songs like Unretrofied. And let me tell you, this song is Unretrofied times gay. Now before some of you go and get upset, I don’t mean that as a slur. I actually had visions of muscle bound sailors with bristly mustaches while listening to it.
According to a blog on their MySpace, guitarist Ben Weinman broke his foot while filming a video for this song. This song?!?!? What, did he trip over a feather boa? I don’t get it.
Is this song gay? “Yuuup, yup yup yup…”
