We recently ran an article about how Las Vegas trudge-rockers Five Finger Death Punch have managed to carve out a successful career for themselves, in part, by aligning themselves with recent veterans. That’s pretty interesting! Good for them! But it doesn’t quite explain why frontman Ivan Moody, while getting ready to end a recent show, decided to go off on Kanye West, a man who occupies a completely different aesthetic universe. Moody didn’t really give any reasons, either. Instead, here’s what he offered: “Fuck Kanye West. Yeah, I said it, and I don’t regret it.” And then he attempted to lead the crowd in a “fuck Kanye” chant, which did not seem too loud, at least in the fan-made video I’ve seen. And then he said some angry things about Facebook and sang a song. West has really been feeling it from the compressed-guttural-churn community lately; witness Slipknot frontman Corey Taylor making Jim Halpert faces while scolding West for calling himself the world’s greatest rock star. Below, watch the Five Finger Annoyance Rant.
In happier news for Kanye West, Hillary Clinton recently said that she wouldn’t rule him out as a potential running mate. So you just made yourselves a powerful enemy, Five Finger Death Punch.
