The Mountain Goats -- The Best Death Metal Band In Denton

Three things:

(1) "Hail Satan!"

(2) "When you punish a person for dreaming his dream, don’t expect him to thank or forgive you/ The best ever death metal band out of Denton will in time both outpace and outlive you"

(3) "This may be a song about Columbine, or a joke about singing about death metal (music that is very loud and thick) on an acoustic guitar (which is neither loud nor thick). Either way, Cyrus and Jeff are familiar Mountain Goats characters, long on bad luck and short on problem-solving skills, and Darnielle, through his poetry, grants them the dignity that eludes them in their lives." (Thanks SFJ!)
