Arizona Shooter Listened to Diabolical Heavy Metal Band


It turns out that the man responsible for taking six innocent lives and injuring thirteen others enjoyed listening not to conservative talk shows, but to diabolical heavy metal bands.

According to parents of one of Jared Loughner’s friends, “The boys listened to the heavy metal band Slipknot and progressive rockers. . . studied the form of meditative movement called tai chi, and watched and discussed movies.”
Slipknot is well known for referring to each band member by a number rather than a name, performing in matching jumpsuits or uniforms, and wearing what the New York Times has accurately labeled, “gruesome masks.”

Slipknot’s lyrics are filled with enraged and unbridled violence, including “(Expletive) it all! (Expletive) the world! (Expletive) everything that you stand for!” and “How many times have you wanted to kill/Everything and everyone – say you’ll do it but never will.” The band members also refer to their fans as “maggots.” (It’s interesting to note that the pop phenomenon Lady Gaga has ascribed the term “little monsters” to her adoring millions.)

Nearly eight years ago in May 2003, two Slipknot fans – Jason Harris (20) and Amber Riley (16) led Terry Taylor (22) on a late-night walk in a park in San Bernardino, California. The San Bernardino Sun reported on June 26 of that year, “They carried butcher knives and sang a song by the death metal band Slipknot as they lured their friend to his death, police say.”
The San Bernardino County Deputy District Attorney said the killers listened to Slipknot’s song, “Disasterpeice,” whose lyrics describe slitting a victim’s throat and the phrase, “You’ll never get out cuz you were never alive.”
Harris and Riley, horribly and irrevocably influenced by the diabolical lyrics of a depraved rock band, were both convicted of murder.

  1. I bet those two killers’ lawyers played on this so called heavy metal influence in an attempt to get off or a less sever sentence. I just hope the judge wasn’t swayed. I have listened to heavy metal music for more than 30 years now and I have never wanted to kill anyone as a result. The only thing that may have made want to do it was the intolerance I suffered from people because I lived the heavy metal life style. All the people mentioned here had some sort of mental health problem and that was what drove them to commit their crimes, not music.

  2. This article is absolute bollocks, the person who wrote is OBVOUSLY has a dislike 4 metal music , saying that the music MADE people commit murder is retarded , their are MILLIONS of people who listen to metal and dont kill or even harm anyone in their lifes , so if a couple of people did then that is entirely down to their individual pathology and not the MUSIC

    ps your a cunt who ever wrote this

  4. Hmm heavy metal music caused this guy to kill six, that is one of the stupidest things I have ever heard in my lifetime. To be honest I am amazed at your ignorance and attempt to rewrite history. You think the music is a bad influence on society, fine that your right and you may be right about that but to try and state that it makes people kill is foolish. If this was true don’t you think (well I take that back because it’s pretty clear you don’t think about what you say before you post it online) that there would be hundreds of millions of killings in the U.S. every year. You should try to bring some actual evidence before you attack someone’s public image and name for the sake of the person in question and te people who died, the people whose memories you might as well have spit one for your own personal gain.

    You should be ashamed to try and manipulate the facts to serve your bearing false witness.
