Lucky 7: In Defense of Metal

The intention of this article is to serve as an Op Ed to Ethan Fixell’s article on MTV’s Guy Code. Just kidding. I’m looking to shred this misogynistic, piece of shit, piece of “writing” like John Petrucci shreds a the end of To Live Forever live. I don’t know what’s been in the water lately, but…
