‘You’re a Mean One Mr. Grinch–The Metal Version

Dr. Seuss' 'How the Grinch Stole Christmas' might be my favorite Christmas tale from childhood. In fact, last year, while driving home for the holidays, I had a Christmas station playing. I'd been feeling a little cranky (a little grinch-like, if you will) and thought some Christmas tunes would put me in the holiday spirit. They didn't. Because most of them are total sh**. But. Then a magical thing happened. The audio version of 'How the Grinch Stole Christmas' came on. And I listened to the whole darn thing. All 22 minutes.  And I'm pretty sure my heart grew three sizes.

Anyway, 'You're a Mean One Mr. Grinch' is a classic Christmas song from the 1966 animated TV special. You may have heard it many times, many ways, but have you ever heard a metal version?

This Website Tells You if a Band is Emo or Not (and Plays You Video of a Cat Watching Slayer)

I remember hearing the word "emo" the first time when I was maybe 12. The guy spat it out of his mouth like being emo was the worst possible thing in the world. He was talking about a band I liked... but he was a tool and he smelled bad, so I decided not to pay too much attention.

Since then I haven't really cared if someone dubs a band I like emo. No one seems to agree on what it means anyway.

Well, now it's simple! There's a website that will tell you if a band is emo or not. And It's gotta be correct! Because as we all know, the internet doesn't lie. Ever.
