Snatched from Running the Voodoo Down, here is a fantastic essay detailing the latest cooption of youth culture by DA MAN perpetrated, interestingly enough, in the form of young female "pop singers" who wear Motorhead shirts in their videos. The author's dissection of the core values of metal is right on, though I question his contention that true metal can't be ironic when bands like Fantomas, the Linus Pauling Quartet and even Sabbath themselves have seemingly proven otherwise.
