While Gary Holt (Slayer/Exodus) has already removed his Instagram post, Loudwire has reported the guitarist recently slammed Imagine Dragons. After watching the pop/rock act’s halftime performance at the College Football Playoff Championship game this past Monday (7th) between Alabama and Clemson, Holt vented about their 10-minute set via Instagram, stating:
“Just watched the college football half time show to see just how bad it really was. PLEASE no more calling this shittiest band on earth “ rock”, they are simply the crappiest excuse for a band I’ve ever heard. Uggggh. Just awful . I don’t usually enjoy slagging musicians but they can’t really call themselves that. So fuck em!!”
According to Loudwire, Holt shared an image with text reading:
“Imagine Dragons suck giant hairy monkey balls.”
Apparently, since the group’s halftime show, Spin raised a question:
“Is Imagine Dragons the Worst Band Ever?”
Meanwhile, there seems to be a division via Twitter as a few consider them “the best” and others have labeled them “worse than Nickelback.”
The uugh uuugh I’m trying to contain my vomit right while reading your article, the ‘journalist’ haven’t listened to ID and i just leave this cap of the article where it says that they play Rock… Imagine Dragons said that they don’t do rock and they’ll say over and over again pic.twitter.com/PXvc59Cmpj
imagine dragons constantly advocates for social justice, LGBTQ+ rights, &mental health, & their lyrics are usually self-empowering. calling them “the worst band ever” just bc they have a certain sound & some college football fans didnt like their halftime show is an ice cold take https://t.co/wnii5ZNBT1
Nailed to Obscurity are set to release their Nuclear Blast debut album Black Frost on January 11th. To celebrate its arrival, the group has unleashed a music video for the song “Tears of the Eyeless.” The clip was directed and produced by Vesa Ranta & Aapo Lahtela as vocalist Raimund Ennenga commented:
“Tears Of The Eyeless’ tells the story of a woman, who has almost buried her true self, but her soul eventually finds a way out of this apparently hopeless situation…”

This past New Year’s Eve (31st), Rob Zombie helped conclude 2018 by performing at Ozzfest at the Forum in Los Angeles, CA. During his set, Marilyn Manson and Motley Crue bassist Nikki Sixx joined the shock rocker on stage to perform the Beatles cover “Helter Skelter.”
Just as promised, to celebrate the New Year, John 5 and the Creatures have released an animated video for the song “Zoinks!” The track is taken from the group’s new album Invasion, which is scheduled to arrive sometime this year. The clip was written and directed by Disney animator Brett Broggs (Frozen/Wreck-It Ralph) and features live footage as well as voiceovers by Nikki Sixx and Susan Olsen of the Brady Bunch.
