Fired for Walking
Ladies and gentlemen, this weekend a battle will be waged for your very musical soul. In this corner, weighing about as much as three small ponies, wearing black, but not in that cool way, the band that made emo what it is today, My Chemical Romance.

And in this corner... Headed by our own guitar rock hero Joel D. Holyle, the head of Four Letter Music. Currently releasing the split single Get Your Sh*t Together Vol. 1 with Dead Mineral they bring all that is good and unholy into what remains of rock and roll, Fired for Walking.

Cue the entrance music... this is the Cage Match!

Rocks Off: Mr. Hoyle, can you tell the millions of Houstonians reading this blog exactly why they should spend their hard-earned recession dollars coming to see Fired for Walking instead of My Chemical Romance?

Joel D. Hoyle: I'll tell you one thing With One F, not only should the people come see Fired for Walking, but those whiney, sugar-britches boys in My Chemical Romance better cancel their gig and come learn how to reaaaally rock! Come see Fired for Walking, we'll give them a personal lesson they won't ever forget! Whoooooa!"


RO: What could someone like you teach My Chemical Romance?

JH: First off, stop crying, it makes kids sad. If you have a suicide prevention phone number on your website, you're doing something wrong.


RO: But Mr. Hoyle, aren't you concerned that this angry rhetoric might push the band over the edge into self-harm?

JH: Everyone needs to learn how to take an ass-whoopin'. That's lesson No. 2.

MCR is a world famous band that has gone platinum, they are super successful and have some of the most devoted fans you will ever meet. I've never even heard of this band, I think they are the ones who could use some lessons from My Chem.

My Chemical Romance are a bunch of whiny bitches. May Lemmy smite their tear stained faces with a broken bottle of Jack.

 Don't worry, sweetie. They're more successful than you'll ever be. <3 Funny thing, too... If you type in,"My Chemical Romance," in the Google News search,you get loads of stories, but  type in, "Fired For Walking," and this is the only one you see. I think that speaks for itself, even if you won't recognize anything else as solid proof.

Hey Xander, MCR still sucks. Just because people buy their music doesn't make it good. Hypothetically, if you were sentenced to be executed, would your last meal be Mc Donald's (over a billion sold)? I would assume the answer is "no". FFW's show will have free beer while your MCR experience will suck about sixty bucks out of your pocket, at least. It's all showbiz anyway. MCR reflect target marketing by "hip" executives. Go hug your mom or something.

Well, sixty bucks would be well spent money in their fans' eyes. And some people don't drink, so it might be less than sixty. And don't assume- you'll make an ass of yourself.

 As a wise man once said, "I'm here to drink, not to get laid".  FfW sounds like a better show all around!

Oh man, I wonder if MCR is going to wear goth marching band outfits at their show on Friday?!  Oh man, MCR fans can't take a joke!

Very few that I saw wore Black Parade uniform jackets. No more than five I'd say. But we can take jokes- it just depends on what type of joke and how it's said. And seriously, Fired for Walking? What kind of name is that? More appealing name and speech that doesn't sound like a drug addict= more curious people. And I heard a couple songs- I'm not wasting MY money on FFW. They need to do what their album title says- Get their sh*t together. Oh, and make a better attempt at getting attention.

Aahhh I see Fired for walking need some attention and publicity so they're taking cheap shots at one of the biggest bands of the moment. Pathetic. Whats great is I know people read this saw fired for walking and were like "who?" and after this is all said and done and they've played they're little show we still won't remember who they are. Lesson 4 things that aren't worth remembering are often forgotten

Band that sells out arenas around the world (MCR) vs. shit band I've never heard of before (FFW).  So there...xDD...and still...MCR FTW.

 Wow, this guy sounds like a total shit-head.  I know who I'm NOT gonna go see.  MCR has saved kids lives, I've seen them work wonders.  It's not causing the suicidal feelings, it's helping to remedy by giving the kids a way to express their emotions and giving them an outlet without judgment.  Rock n' roll isn't about being a badass, it's about the music and the heart of it.  This guy has no heart and from listening to their music, Fired for Walking kinda sucks (They also need a damn name change).  I have no respect for this guy, and all for MCR.

 I'm not replying to skot, I'm simply saying what I have to say. They aren't whining or crying about anything, so get your fucking facts straight. MCR never "whines." They tell you to go out and fight for yourself and who you are. That's not whining. Whining is the little kids in the back crying and complaining about how horrible things are without planing to DO anything to fix that. That's whining. Don't make that mistake again. And they have rather nice taste, actually, in dress, but that's irrelevant. Insults based solely on appearence just show you never grew up. It's funny, too, that you chose THAT  song. Typical media tricks. How about you post something from Famous Last Words, I Never Told You What I Did For A Living, or  Skylines and Turnstiles, hm? What about posting Save Yourself, I'll Hold Them Back? Or would that not make your little theories match up? Listen, rock isn't about who is more bad or hardcore or anything else. It's about much more than that, and you obviously haven't realized it. You don't have to like them. You don't have to want to go out and buy their merch or anything else, but if you respecected music, you'd at least come up with more intelligent insults. As Mr.Manson once said, "Selective judgements and good guy badges don't mean a fuck to me." You want to persuade people to share your views? Find a way to express them that doesn't make you sound like you're at a third grade learning level. One more thing, honey... They really couldn't give less a fuck, I'm sure. They're more successful than you will ever be. Don't worry- You're no threat.

‎"Everyone needs to learn how to take an ass-whoopin'. That's lesson No. 2." Awesome.

Yet another good one, Jef.
