SOTY get fucked up


Recommended Posts

St. Louis, Missouri-based emo-core/pop-punk outfit STORY OF THE YEAR reportedly got into an altercation with some of GODSMACK's crew during an appearance at the X-103's May Day 2004 concert on Saturday (May 29) at the Verizon Wireless Music Center in Noblesville, Indiana. The following is a message posted by one of the STORY OF THE YEAR bandmembers on their official web site:


"Hello everyone. Something pretty amazing happened, and I would like to share it with you...

"Last night, at a radio show in Indiana, my band (except for Josh, he was in the shower) and our tour manager was jumped by GODSMACK's production manager, crew, and security, along with local security. It was a pretty fair fight. The five of us vs. at least ten 200+ pound football reject, jock-cokehead fucking piece of shit fucking losers. Almost a fair fight huh? So what did we do to deserve this, you probably wondering? It had to have been something really bad, huh? Did we have sex with one of their wives? No, that's not why. Did we steal some of their drugs? No. Not that either. Did we sell their security some bunk steroids? No. This is the awful thing that we did to get jumped.

"The show was in an amphitheater. We made everyone in the crowd jump, and asked everyone in the lawn to come down to the front of the stage. I can totally understand how this might have caused a little bit of a panic for the local security, but the show was sucking, so we had to make it rock. It's not like there was a riot or anything. It ruled. Apparently, GODSMACK's douche bag fucking production manager and crew didn't like this, so they we're backstage waiting for us...

"I'm going to stop the story right there just to reiterate the fact that this was a RADIO SHOW. NOT A FUCKING GODSMACK SHOW. We were not opening for GODSMACK. We are not on tour with GODSMACK. The absolute fact of the matter is that neither GODSMACK's band or crew had any authority or say in anything regarding my band. It was simply none of their fucking business what happened on or off stage during our performance.

"Anyway, we walked off stage excited, because we turned a shitty show into a fucking rock show. Within ten seconds of us finishing our last song, GODSMACK's ugly dick-faced production manager had his hands all over Dan screaming at him saying, 'Get the fuck out of here, you're not getting fucking paid', "Who the fuck do you think you are, you're not fucking rock stars'.... Dan replied to the guy's face 'YEAAAAHHHHH ROCK AND ROLL! WAHOOOOO!' This really pissed off the piece-of-shit production manager. Our tour manager intervened and told the dude not [to] touch [any of the] band members. What happens next? Three cro-magnon jock fucks grabs our tour manager and holds him still so one guy could pummel his face. 4 of them jump on Adam and pummel his face. Dan, Phil, and I got hit, but not half as bad as they did. Josh walked off stage and went in the dressing room just 5 seconds before this happened and missed it. I did get to punch a dude in the face a couple of times. That ruled. Dan got to punch their production manager in the face, and Phil, god love Phil...He picked up a metal box and smashed the pussy face production manager in the head with it. I think it's still pretty safe to say we lost though.

"Let me again reiterate the fact that no one in GODSMACK's band or crew had ANY FUCKING RIGHT TO EVEN SAY A WORD TO US. If we were opening for GODSMACK at one of THEIR lame-ass shows or if we were on tour with them, then yeah, they've got the power, it's their show, they're in charge. But even then, kick us off tour, tell us to go home, cuss at us, don't pay us whatever. DON'T PUT YOUR FUCKING GORILLA HANDS ON MY FUCKING BAND. That's not business, that fucking gang shit.

"So we just got jumped putting on a rock show, then to top it off, the fucking cops quarantine us in a 300-degree room while all the fucks who started the fight walked around drinking beer and laughing about it. They totally started the fight, threw the first punches, and WE were fucking held in a room, then held in our bus. Then, the icing on the cake — an inbred cop with a handlebar moustache tells us 'he's not putting up with our kind' and 'the whole things a joke and he can personally guarantee that nothing will happen to anyone that kicked our ass'.... Eat another doughnut you power abusive fucking molester.

"So why fuck GODSMACK? Because their dickface crew jumped us and not one member of that fucking band bothered to come and apologize for it. Sully (the singer) walked by our dressing room, looked at us, and gave us a dirty look. No sorry my hoosier ass crew jumped you. No 'Sorry my band hires irresponsible fucking criminals.' Nothing from any of them. Awesome.

"It's funny that we played a terrible fucking new metal festival with all these hard-ass terrible new metal dork bands like GODSMACK, and they couldn't handle little old STORY OF THE YEAR's rock show. Sorry we're not 40 years old and we don't stand on stage like someone is forcing us to. Sorry we love our band and love to put on a show for people who pay 3 million dollars to see a bunch of dorky bands stare at their feet. So they took it upon themselves to jump us. Yeah, so fuck GODSMACK and their stupid fucking crew, and fuck every steroid using, jock fucking cave man security guard that thinks hitting a dude 200 pounds smaller than him is cool. Eat shit and die you fucking pussies."

Haha, SOTY are fucking emo pussies, and they're calling Godsmack and their crew football rejects.

god that's so fucking cliche. All the emo fuckers have something against football players and the like.

I hope Sully beats the ever loving shit out of SOTY's lead singer. And I don't even like Godsmack.

Meh, I like both bands, but in the world of rock & metal, Godsmack are big pussies, so they have to make themselves feel good by picking on emo punk bands. :P

Nothing will ever beat Adema trying to pick a fight with Down at Ozzfest. The got on Down's tour bus, they left with broken noses!! :P

Godsmack, I hate thos idiots almost as much as I hate Puddle of Mudd. SOTY I'm not a big fan of but Godsmack I hate with a passion. Sure they weren't fighting but you think they could have at least said sorry as it wasn't even a really big thing.

This the perfect example of how small tiny things can become huge things if not fixed.

Plus it wasn't even Godsmack's show. Fuck Godsmack

What a whiney cunt. I'm sure this story is also full of total bullshit and lies and then had to come on the net and bitch because he got his ass kicked. The douche came across like some 15 year old that just got stuffed in a locker for acting like a jackass. These little bitches probably tried fucking with the roadies and they weren't having it. Story of the Year blows my cock.

Maybe your not making it clear.

It wasn't Godsmacks show right?

BUT local security was also involved which they mention only once. The fact was it was a security problem, and Godsmacks security also has to protect Godsmack so they worked with the local authorities. And yes the production manager can make the calls because he's the PRODUCTION MANAGER :blink: WEIRD THEORY HUH!?

SOTY is just a bunch of fucking pansies with no rhythm, good songs, and are just pieces of shit. Godsmack always over those idiots. I've always hated SOTY and always will. Based off of what was said in the little website... that they didn't seem to maintain there composure. Thus it's obviously they lost. But no they want to act all hardcore.


Seriously... does anyone else seem to realize how extremely idiotic SOTY is especially after this?

Actually So Far So Good and Anthem of our Dying Day aren't bad songs :P They'e not actually that bad, they're not fucking whine whine whine, emo.

And I hate it when people say bands have no rhythm, of course they have fucking rhythm, it would be impossible to play as a band without some sense of it.

To be honest about the fight I don't care, don't like Godsmack and I don't mind SOTY, but I don't judge bands on what they've done, could have done, should have done etc. If I hear the music and like it, what else should I care about?

Like a lot of others have said they probably did make up some big story. Swearing doesn't get you anywhere either it makes you look childish when you say it every other word.

Does anybody have Godsmack's side of this story if there is one? I want to see what they say about it.

How old are these guys in SOTY? He sounds like he's a little kid throwing a fit because he got told he was wrong. Sure, I think the security people were out of line if the story is as he tells it but he sounds like a friggin' tool. For one, he's stupid to single out Godsmack when I'm guessing they weren't even aware of any of this happening. Another thing to consider is that even though this was a radio station concert, Godsmack was probably the headlining act. Also, since they're probably one of the more veteran bands on the bill, their management was probably heavily involved in putting on this show and that's why they were assisting the local security. Overall, it sounds like the SOTY pansies got all pissy because they didn't like anyone telling them what to do.
