If it's mainstream, then why am I bagged out by regular people for listening to it? The only reason I don't have Wednesday's ilder stuff is I haven't had the time to aquire it. As I said in another thread, I'm paranoid the 'rents are watching me on the computer.
Technically, you're both right. More and more people are figuring out who the Murderdolls are, and I could be wrong about it, but the reason I see, is because of Joey Jordison. Joey is popular because of Slipknot. I think Slipknot is one of the biggest alternative/metal/whateveryouwannacallit bands out there today, and so because of that, Joey is bringing recognition to the Murderdolls. Frankenstein Drag Queens is my favourite form of anything Wednesday 13 has ever done. But in the same vein, Murderdolls aren't as popular as, say, Children of Bodom, or Cannibal Corpse (I don't know a lot of deathmetal bands or the hardcore stuff, sorry for the shitty examples), because they're not on TV, they're not carried in "mainstream" stores. The only place I've ever found anything by the Murderdolls is online.
So...Yeah, they're popular. But not as popular as they could be. (Which is sad, 'cause they're friggin' awesome.)
As someone who listened to Cannibal Corpse when they were an underground band I take offense to them being called 'shitty'. You fawn over mainstream bands in this thread and then consider a CC a 'shitty' example of Death Metal?
