3TEETH Sucks

NOW LISTENING: Gary Numan - Metal

I’m gonna have to say it, 3TEETH are boring as fuck. I’ve listened to a few of their songs now as multiple people (including Raymond Watts, when I met him personally) have suggested I listen to them. I mention industrial and people immediately bring up 3TEETH. If I wanted to listen to Powerman 5000 or Static-X, I would listen to them, and not a bootleg over-polished fusion of them.

Speaking of revivals no-one asked for, ‘hardcore’ music seems to be a big thing right now. I’ve tried listening to various songs by various bands as I have a few friends who are into that sort of music but sweet Jesus. I can’t do it. It’s metalcore all over again.

It reminds me of when I tried to force myself to like dogshit bands like Sleeping With Sirens because a girl I really admired back when I was in high school loved that stuff. She was near the end of her uni degree and I was in year 10 or something, and I thought she was the shit.

Now I’m in her position (albeit with a bonus sex-change under my belt) and my most listened-to genre at the minute is industrial – the equivalent of people fucking around with power tools and scrap metal. Maybe I’m just as bad.
