Ode to "You Suffer" by Napalm Death

Press play.

YOU SUFFER BUT WHY?

In just a blink of an eye, it’s over. You’d think with all the time I managed to save by listening to this single track, I would spend it on something much more constructive. But no, I want to hear it again.

YOU SUFFER BUT WHY?

Why? Good question. I wanted to see if the lyrics actually lined up with what Nik was actually yelling. Sounds more like “you-aghhh” to me.

So you might be wondering why I’m participating in this year’s Metal March, even if I’m not listed under CJLO’s metal shows. Isn’t Sewer Spewer primarily a punk show?

Well, if you ever bothered to listen to my radio show, you would realize that the lines between the punk and metal tunes I play on the air are quite blurred.
