Flush it Friday: A Vulgar Display of Cringe


You might have heard – people have wanted for it for a long time – but Pantera’s finally cashing in their boomer-band pension fund and doing some reunion shows.  Cool.  Awesome.  Sure it’ll be magical.  I’m not annoyed by this band so much as the way people rally around them.  So many things about them are problematic relics of the past.  Phil Anselmo doing a white power salute, then writing it off.  Dimebag dropping the N-word on video.  The usual “heritage not hate” rhetoric about brandishing the Confederate flag on guitars.  People might say it’s unhelpful to ‘nitpick’ mistakes from the past instead of just leaving them there or looking for common ground.  I might accept that if people weren’t trying to deify this band.  Trying to restore Vinnie Paul’s nasty sex limo.  Floating the idea of turning Vinnie’s mansion into a Pantera museum.  Going on a worldwide reunion tour that will probably sell out.  Mostly I’m annoyed I keep reading about this band on various metal outlets.  Guess I’ll take some advice and just walk out.

Now, here’s some hot content you’d regret walking out on this week
