Does anyone here ever read Urban Dictionary? You know, it's a website less credible than Wikipedia -- if that's even possible to comprehend. Somehow I stumbled across Urban Dictionary over the weekend and was appalled at the entry for Glam Metal:
GLAM METAL: Sucked ass and deserved to die. The worst type of rock ever. Metal is not supposed to be happy or about girls and getting laid. I am glad grunge killed that suck ass piece of shit glam metal because they were all a bunch of cross-dressing faggots from L.A. Grunge and Thrash is so much better and I am glad they killed off faggy glam metal. Nirvana and are so much better and I am sad they both have deceased frontmen, and because of them glam metal is DEAD. Now its trying to make a come back with fucking that faggot from Poison and his gay reality dating show "Rock of Love" and the guy from with his Sixx AM. I cant even see how people could have like it back in the eighties. Glam Metal is for queers.
Clearly I didn't edit any of that post. I mean, really, is this what people truly think of Glam? Is it? I would never go on Urban Dictionary and write a similar post about Grunge. Never. Good grammar skills notwithstanding, I just couldn't stoop that low and dare look so...uneducated. The thing is, Urban Dictionary has an option where you can rate the post and edit. I did neither. I do my fair share of rating Glam here everyday and, while I could totally own every single person on that substandard website Oxford English Dictionary style, I chose to rise above. I decided that would be the Glam thing to do.
