The Japanese are a little different in some of the stuff they like.  There are some things that are just different from us loony Americans.

Here, kids watch cartoons, in Japan, the adults watch Anime.

Here, metal is angry and screamed by angry-looking dudes who are really pissed off about stuff.

In Japan, their metal can be seriously different.  I mean, SERIOUSLY DIFFERENT!

I’m a Dog And I Like Socks, DON’T JUDGE ME! [Video]

I have been a fan of the humor-core band Psychostick for a few years now, and this video is kind of old, but that doesn't mean it still kicks ass. Of all the things you could write a song about, why not write a song about a Dog...that likes socks, and make it metal as 'eff?

Obey the Beard Because Psychostick Said So! [Video]

Humorcore band Psychostick has brought out another fine metal tune into the world.

If you have never seen or heard Psychostick, it is one of the funniest bands you can mosh and laugh too.

Now, they want you to OBEY THE BEARD!
