Fade to the Musical

By Shadowgate


Paul Whitaker came home from school. He was fed up with the teachers always siding with bullies. He couldn't stand the snobs that listened to Kate Perry and insisted everyone dress like they do.

He put on the Cannibal Corpse album Eaten Back To Life.

He began singing along with the first song.

He started to growl and head bang.

He was so happy to live in America where you had the freedom to listen to Cannibal Corpse.

He started singing along to track 3 Put Them To Death.

"Fuck you and your kind!"

Eventually he ended up slamming his head against the wall.

He said out loud "oh my fucking head."

After that he ran out of his room and on to his driveway.

In the house next door Thomas Row cranked up Slayer's Christ Illusion.

The song Fleshstorm got him fired up.

A few houses down Marcy Robertson was listening to Astronomy by Blue Oyster Cult.

Her mother came into her room and said "I used to listen to that when I was a kid."

Marcy said "I hate the new pop music mom I'll listen music you grew up on instead."

Marcy flew across her room then went down the stairs.

Three houses down from Marcy was a 12 year old boy named James Hunter. He was looking through his music collection. He had Slayer, Gwar, Sepultura and Ozzy among tons more. He put on Bark at the Moon.

He started thrashing around his room. His dad came up and started griping "why are you listening to that music James?"

James answered "because I love it."

James ran out of his room and out the door. He met up with Marcy, Paul, and Thomas and when he did he said "we're the only fucking kids on the block who listen to metal.

Marcy sang "I'll never change the other girls can have Justin Beiber."

Tomas sang "I'll never change and fuck the beliebers."

Paul sang "my teacher hated my Pantera t-shirt well fuck her."

James sang "there's no evidence that metal turns you into a mass murderer!"

All four start head banging.

Paul sang "I love Cannibal Corpse and I love 6 Feet Under. I'm not given them up even if the church ministers threaten to tear me asunder."

James sang "I will never be another kid who's into the newest pop music I want my metal loud as thunder."

Marcy sang "my principal told me I couldn't wear my GWAR t-shirt to school because the kids who hate me personally complained so what my principal is a bitch fuck her."

Thomas sang "I don't care what any school principal says, I really don't give a crap. I love my metal dark and gloomy like Metallica's Fade to Black."

Marcy sang "let's now fade silently and bring an end to our song."

All sang at once and brought it to an end.
