Seriously, what's next, Slipknot? I always thought of Wacken as a haven for people into real metal, not watered down tripe that corporate assholes try to pass off as metal. I seriously hope this isn't a downward spiral that will end in Wacken being the ozzfest of Europe. I'm fully aware all you European types will call me closed-minded, but you didn't have to deal with all the morons with pink hair, korn shirts, and pants 90 sizes too big running around saying "metal is dead" all throughout the 90s like we did over here. Now that the "nu-metal" (un-metal) trend is dying, they want to jump off their sinking ship and be considered a part of metal? FUCK THAT! Of course I'm still going, but I doubt I'd cross the atlantic for Wacken alone this year.
