Daily Mail Headline Or Metalcore Band Name?

It turns out that Daily Mail headlines make the perfect metalcore band names

For those of you who aren’t aware, the Daily Mail is a UK tabloid newspaper, the frontpage of which is often plastered with riling headlines, primed and ready to cause some kind of emotional reaction amongst its 1million+ readers. That’s a lot of outrage. But did you know, that the majority of these headlines could also be the names of bad metalcore bands? You know the type, the bands that clutter up the early afternoons of one-day festivals, spending way more time on their merch than their music.

To prove our point, we did a little Google image search for Daily Mail front page” and were met with a deluge of slogans written in block capitals, each more sensational than the last. And do you know what? Every single one could be a bad metalcore band. Even the longer headlines could be album titles! 

Don’t believe us? Check out the sick merch we mocked up using Daily Mail headlines.

Enemies Of The People

And because we have too much time on our hands, we even mocked up a flyer for MailFest 2020. Boris Fever are headlining, naturally.
