Godsmack vs. Story of the Year
« on: June 01, 2004, 03:35:16 pm »

I found this on another site.

Hello everyone. Something pretty amazing happened, and I would like to share it with you...........

Last night, at a Radio Show in Indiana, my band (except for Josh, he was in the shower) and our tour manager was jumped by godsmack's production manager, crew, and security, along with local security. It was a pretty fair fight. The five of us vs. at least ten 200+ pound football reject, jock - coke head fucking piece of shit fucking losers. Almost a fair fight huh? So what did we do to deserve this you probably wondering? It had to have been something really bad huh? Did we have sex with one of their wives? No, that's not why. Did we steal some of their drugs? No. Not that either. Did we sell their security some bunk steroids?. No. This is the awful thing that we did to get jumped..

The show was in an amphitheater. We made everyone in the crowd jump, and asked everyone in the lawn to come down to the front of the stage. I can totally understand how this might have caused a little bit of a panic for the local security, but the show was sucking, so we had to make it rock. It's not like there was a riot or anything. It ruled. Apparently, godsmack's douche bag fucking production manager and crew didn't like this, so they we're backstage waiting for us......

I'm going to stop the story right there just to re-interate the fact that this was a RADIO SHOW. NOT A FUCKING GODSMACK SHOW. We were not opening for godsmack. We are not on tour with godsmack. The absolute fact of the matter is that neither godsmacks's band or crew had any authority or say in anything regarding my band. It was simply none of their fucking business what happened on or off stage during our performance.

Anyway, we walked off stage excited, because we turned a shitty show into a fucking rock show. Within ten seconds of us finishing our last song, Godsmacks ugly dick faced production manager had his hands all over Dan screaming at him saying "Get the fuck out of here, you're not getting fucking paid" "Who the fuck do you think you are, you're not fucking rock stars"....Dan replied to the guys face "YEAAAAHHHHH ROCK AND ROLL! WAHOOOOO!" This really pissed off the piece of shit production manager. Our tour manager intervened and told the dude not touch band members. What happens next? Three cro-magnon jock fucks grabs our tour manager and holds him still so one guy could pummel his face. 4 of them jump on Adam and pummel his face. Dan, Phil, and I got hit, but not half as bad as they did. Josh walked off stage and went in the dressing room just 5 seconds before this happened and missed it. I did get to punch a dude in the face a couple of times. That ruled. Dan got to punch thier production manager in the face, and Phil, god love Phil...He picked up a metal box and smashed the pussy face production manager in the head with it. I think It's still pretty safe to say we lost though.

Let me again re-inerate the fact that no one in godsmack's band or crew had ANY FUCKING RIGHT TO EVEN SAY A WORD TO US. If we were opening for godsmack at one of THIER lame ass shows or if we were on tour with them, then yeah, they've got the power, it's their show, they're in charge. But even then, kick us off tour, tell us to go home, cuss at us, don't pay us whatever. DON'T PUT YOUR FUCKING GORILLA HANDS ON MY FUCKING BAND. That's not business, that fucking gang shit.

So we just got jumped putting on a rock show, then to top it off, the fucking cops quarantine us in a 300 degree room while all the fucks who started the fight walked around drinking beer and laughing about it. They totally started the fight, threw the first punches, and WE were fucking held in a room, then held in our bus. Then, the icing on the cake; an inbred cop with a handlebar moustache tells us "he's not putting up with our kind" and " the whole things a joke and he can personally guarantee that nothing will happen to anyone that kicked our ass".... Eat another doughnut you power abusive fucking molester.

So why fuck godsmack? Because their dickface crew jumped us and not one member of that fucking band bothered to come and apologize for it. Sully (the singer) walked by our dressing room, looked at us, and gave us a dirty look. No sorry my hoosier ass crew jumped you. No sorry my band hires irresponsible fucking criminals, Nothing from any of them. Awesome.

It's funny that we played a terrible fucking new metal festival with all these hard ass terrible new metal dork bands like godsmack, and they couldn't handle little old storyoftheyear's rock show. Sorry we're not 40 years old and we don't stand on stage like someone is forcing us to. Sorry we love our band and love to put on a show for people who pay 3 million dollars to see a bunch of dorky bands stare at their feet. So they took it upon themselves to jump us. Yeah, so fuck godsmack and their stupid fucking crew, and fuck every steroid using, jock fucking cave man security guard that thinks hitting a dude 200 pounds smaller than him is cool. Eat shit and die you fucking pussies.

One reply:

This is great. Not just that they got made fools of, but also because they seem to be under the impression that redemption can be had by calling Godsmack's crew names on the internet.

SOTY are a bunch of cocky, self absorbed children. If they didn't deserve getting tossed around a bit for this, I am sure this was just karma catching up.

Though I do love the angel they're trying for: "we got beat up for rocking too hard!"

Right on dudes, I'm sure every 12 year old there thought the set was totally killer.

I'd bet a bunch of money that some of the guys in the band made some wise ass backhanded comment about Godsmack either on or off stage and thought they could get away with it. Instead they got treated like prison bitches.

Poor kids... put some ice on it.

Another reply from the review in the paper:

WRZX rounded out the bill with four "baby bands" -- which means these acts have yet to make it big (and time is running out).

Story of the Year made the biggest impression, thanks to a faster, more desperate style than the rest.

Vocalist Dan Marsala called lawn dwellers down to the pavilion, which triggered a wave of frantic interaction between some ticketholders and security personnel.

While this is a tired tactic for causing a commotion, it also illustrated Story of the Year's desire for rock 'n' roll to go down swinging if it's going down.

The band members' New Wave hairstyles were ironic, as were their pop-metal guitar tricks. But their interpretation of hardcore punk -- although sweetened more than purists will ever endorse -- provided a thrilling shot of adrenaline.

Call Star reporter David Lindquist at (317) 444-6404.

I'm not sure what to make of this. I would have thought assault charges would have been filed. I hate when the band invites the audience to jump the ropes.
