One of the greatest but most underrated characters on Futurama
. Known for being completely golden, always lying down, even while walking, almost always munching on grapes, and always rejoicing at anything and everything that brings him entertainment or pleasure.
Some of Hedonism Bot's best quotes are:
I apologize for nothing!
Surgery in an opera? How wonderfully decadent! And just when I was beginning to lose interest... Djambi, the chocolate icing!
Oh, sirrah, how deliciously absurd!
The most overrated show in TV history. Peter Griffin is just Homer Simpson with hair, glasses, and a Boston accent, and the show's most famous jokes are either dragged out too long and/or repeated too many times. Not to mention the show relies too much on pop culture references to be funny. And anytime a song appears on the show (Rock Lobster, Surfin Bird, etc.), then suddenly every teen in America knows everything about the song and band-even if they never heard of either before.
FOX was smart to cancel Family Guy in 2002, but then they stupidly brought it back in 2005.
Song by early Garage Rock/Rock n Roll
band The Trashmen
from their debut album of the same name. The Ramones
did a terrific cover of it on their "Rocket to Russia" album.
A great song indeed. Sadly most kids today only know about it due to it's use on an episode of "Family Guy".
Kid A: What are you listening to?
Kid B: Surfin' Bird
Kid A: Sweet! Which version, The Trashmen or The Ramones?
Kid B: Ummm...Peter Griffin's?
Kid A: You mean The Trashmen's version.
Kid B: No I'm pretty sure this is Peter's
Kid A: *sigh* Never mind. *to self* That's why I'm fine with Futurama
A very dark and experimental genre of music. The genre was first created by Throbbing Gristle
in the 1970's. The sound is characterized by drone-like noises in an ambient style and frequent use of found objects and electronic instruments (mainly the keyboard and computer programming but electric guitars, bass, and drums are found in it). Industrial music became more well-known when the genres of Industrial Rock
and Industrial Metal
first came into being. Fans of Industrial music are called rivetheads
though Industrial is very popular with straight up Goths
Contrary to what some people say, bands like Nine Inch Nails
, and some works of Marilyn Manson
ARE in fact Industrial. Though these bands have had at least one period of mainstream exposure, they remain relativley underground compared to a lot of other musicians, not to mention a lot of them are back in the underground (while NIN and Manson have performed in stadiums before, they mostly play in smaller venues that barely hold more than 500-1000 people). Bands like the above mentioned ones are ...
Born 1958, a musician known best perhaps for forming the legendary Chicago
Industrial Metal act Ministry
, as well as writing most (if not all) of the music and being the only consistant member throughout the band's 27-year history. Jourgensen is also in charge of other bands such as 1000 Homo DJs
, Revolting Cocks
(often shortened as "RevCo") and Lard with former Dead Kennedys
frontman Jello Biafra
Jourgensen is a noted hater of the Bush family
, his favorite targets being former presidents George H.W. Bush
and George W. Bush
, with several of Ministry's songs being critical of the way they've run the country.
I really hope Al Jourgensen organizes a Ministry reunion tour in the future.
One of the most famous New Wave bands. Formed in Athens, Georgia in 1976. Famous for songs like "Rock Lobster", "Love Shack", "Roam", and "Channel Z"
The B-52's are the ultimate Party Rock band
Cool 1983 song from New Order
. Gained giant popularity in the late 90's when the band Orgy
covered it for their album Candyass.
Blue Monday is an amazing song.
