Canuck tween heartthrob Justin Bieber and Iowa’s favourite douche-metal band Slipknot have more in common than you’d think.

With Lady Gaga famously having Christened her fans her “little monsters,” you could be forgiven for thinking the phenomenon began with her. In actuality, musicians have been giving pet names to their followers for decades, long before Slipknot dubbed theirs “maggots.” More recently, Justin Bieber inadvertently entered the pop dictionary as a noun, his most ardent fans having been dubbed “Beliebers” by a disbelieving public.

What do these two names have in common? Simples. The late, great Richie James Edwards penned the words: “Little people, in little houses, like maggots: small, blind and worthless.” Clearly, Slipknot have a great affection for their fans – or at least did before they all grew up and realised that well-fitted clothes are always more flattering. Fittingly, Beliebers (and Believers in general) also tend to be small, blind and worthless in varying quantities.

Which brings us to the video. ‘Psychosocial Baby’ shouldn’t really work on any level yet, somehow, it works on every level simultaneously with reckless disregard for everything that is good and pure. Furthermore, it confirms three basic tenets of the Universal Law: a) Slipknot have always been a pop band with a shitty metal backing track; b) the Biebs is death metal to the core; and c) it’s still really creepy when Ludacris raps about his 13-year-old girlfriend waking him up in the morning.

There is a download link on Youtube.

Most pop songs are formatted the same way
Or Bieber is secretly a maggot and they are his biggest influence

the only enjoyable part of Psychosocial was the psuedo-"breakdown" and they covered that up with Ludacris rhyming shit about fucking his 13 year old bitch or something like that....that's cool. Yeah, real cool...

djaydjay
04.06.11
haha that was really well done

but about the "going well together" part: if you change the tempo and the pitch (which was done in that video, even if only slightly for the tempo), you can make any songs match together ;-)

Disappointed that they didn't replace the rap section with the guitar solo, but eh, you can't have it all.

Find inner self, and develop self personality, is a people's internal growth process. Children due to mental is not yet, must from growing in praise of the close and affirmation, to be encouraged. Others praise and criticism, is all external factors, we can't always rely on external evaluation to understand themselves, only their own explore, discover to close to the real self. A grown man, more can understand his own strengths and weaknesses, More not be outside disturbance, also more can understand inner world, and can control your joy. From the childish dependent psychology, mind to mature happy.
