There's gotta be other metal bands out there besides Avenged Sevenfold...Yeah, I'm not looking forward to the next time someone says "But we got metal recently!" when someone asks for more metal, without considering that they mean "Metal that isn't Avenged Sevenfold/Megadeth/Slipknot!"
As for this week's songs, Won't Get Fooled Again is a must-have for those who never got the RB1 export, I feel, and the new Avenged Sevenfold song is not my thing. I love Avenged Sevenfold...'s earlier work. Nightmare was their last good album, in my opinion, and I'd love to see more from Nightmare and before. But their more recent stuff, musically, isn't really my thing. "The Stage" (the song) was fun on guitar, sure, but musically was kinda meh. From listening to God Damn, I kinda get the same vibe. The intro is pretty good, but the moment the vocals kick in, it just feels kinda lackluster compared to their earlier stuff. Sounds like it'll be fun to play, though.3
I still enjoyed it, and I'd sure listen to a song like that!2
Cult of Personality is available as stand-alone DLC, as well as the rest of Blitz's soundtrack. In fact, as of now that's the only way to get those songs, since the export for Blitz expired recently. You should be able to buy it in the in-game store, download it, and play it.1
I'll also throw my name in the "Don't want Ted Nugent" pile. I'll also throw it in the "Disappointed it's a spotlight song" pile as well.
Postpone looks fun, though, so I may pick that up someday.3
Out of curiosity, I went and listened to it. To be honest, I was actually kinda liking it, until the chorus hit. But upon listening to the whole thing, I wonder if Taylor is alright. Like, this kinda seems like the kind of self-destruction, both lyrically and sonically, that even I wouldn't dream of trying to pull off. The lyrics seem to be entirely about how people mocked who she used to be, and as a result, now she's doing.... well, this.
As someone who likes experimental music a lot, I wonder if this is maybe an example of some sort of attack at mainstream culture via experimentation and self-sabotage in music form.
Again, wondering and hoping that Taylor is doing okay.2
