I could never, ever, ever understand the appeal behind it.
So I'm asking you, fellow rockophiles... what's the deal? Why do you like it?
I feel like an ancient old coot admitting this, but the Cookie Monster lyrical style makes me want to weep, and the lyrics themselves? I mean... the last death metal song I heard was something by Slipknot, and went something like "I want to slit your throat and f--k the wound".
What the hell?
Don't get me wrong, I'm not calling anyone out here or trying to belittle your favorite genre. But just explain it to me... because I don't understand.
