Machine Head frontman Robb Flynn has choice words to say about his critics and the band Dope.

Robb Flynn Posts Rant Accusing "Bitchass Internet Trolls" Of "Menstruating" Over Machine Head's New Song

In the past, Machine Head frontman Robb Flynn has come off as one of the more cool-headed members of the heavy metal community. Last year, when Machine Head announced that longtime members Dave McClain and Phil Demmel were leaving the band, Robb kept his wits about him and offered a pretty reasonable response. But in response to critics calling out Machine Head's new song for apparently sounding a little too much like one by nu-metallers Dope, the singer decided to let everyone know how he really felt, and posted a lengthy and less-than-gentlemanly rant online that called out Dope, Babymetal, and "bitchass Internet trolls."

In a post on his Instagram, Robb wrote the following alongside a video of the band playing at Dynamo in 1995:

"To all the bitchass internet troll motherfuckers who keep whining and menstrating [sic] about how "Do Or Die” has lyrics from the band Dope. Here’s a little fucking reminder for your moronic nu-metal-brain’s, since 1993 in our song “fuck at all” I’ve been saying “c’mon motherfucker c’mon” in the middle break down. Here’s video of me in 1995 saying it at Dynamo!⠀

It was a good seven years before Dopes 2001’s “Die MF Die” came out you fuckin sausage gobblers!⠀


Not to mention that any fucking band on the planet saying “______ motherfucker ______” in any combination (and that goes for coal chamber, five finger death punch, dope, and yes, Machine Head) are all jacking it from 1984’s hip hop classic “The Roof Is On Fire” by Rock Master Scott & The Dynamic Three. Swipe right ➡️ to listen! Know your fucking musical history fuckboi’s!!⠀

And if I hear one more fucking internet twathole moaning about “cringe worthy lyrics” while they sit in front of their computers stroking their little fucking boners to the lyrical genius of fucking BABYMETAL, eat a bowl of cock! ⠀

Because the second the Pantera’s 'walk' comes on, with such lyrical Edgar Allan Poe-esque masterpiece is like “run your mouth when I’m not around it’s easy to achieve” and “walk on home boy” Or lamb of god’s “this is a motherfucking invitation” these same fucking brain-donors run right out to the dance floor and start headbanging!⠀And rightly so!!

P.S. Who the fuck listens to Dope!!??"

There you have it -- Robb's mad as hell, and he's not going to take it anymore. And if you don't like it, you are apparently a sausage-gobbling twathole, or something.
