MACHINE HEAD — "Bastards" Rehearsal Video

A new folk song Robb wrote: "BASTARDS"

Yesterday I told my sons "sometimes the bad guys win"
And that it made me scared about the world that we live in
But I had to reassure them that it wouldn’t be for long
Sons we have to be ourselves
We have to be strong

I said “sons you are the future, so let this be a lesson”
There may come a day you have to fight off their aggression
Cause fear and hatred won today, the darkness ate the light
But both you look in my eyes, “it’ll be all right”

In every step you take,
I’m with you all the way,
Cause I would die for you
And do what’s right for you
In hopes that when I’m gone
You’ll carry on these words I wrote for you

Til then…
I’ll sing

Stand your ground
Don’t let the bastards grind you down
Be bold, be strange
Don’t let their fears make you afraid
There’s hope, they’ll change

Today I looked out to the world, thought "what a bloody mess!”
They stripped our morals from us, put ’em under house arrest
"Liberty" and "country" are the words they need to speak
A little “god” a little “freedom”, if we don’t agree we’re weak

And every politician stood there idle and so smug
Empowering the racists and 2nd Amendment thugs
Wall St and the billionaires, thinking they’re so smart
Saying “vote with your wallets, instead of with your hearts!”

But we wont go away!
You won’t forget our name!
The p***y generation, the PC and the brave
The protesters that slink along the streets of misery

And so…
I’ll sing

Stand your ground
Don’t let the bastards grind you down
Be bold, be strange
Don’t let their fears make you afraid
There’s hope, they’ll change

No, no, no, no, no

So give us all your fa***ts, all your ni***rs and your s***ks
Give us all your mu***ms, the so-called ter****sts
We welcome them with open arms, put ‘em in our mix
We’re better off together, embrace our difference

Remember there is love!
Our words can stop their guns
Forget the rednecks
Living in the past
Were never going back now, we’ve reached critical mass

And so…
I’ll sing

Stand my ground
Won’t let the bastards grind me down
I’m bold, I’m strange
Won’t let their fears make me afraid
There’s hope, they’ll change

Absolutely great song. As a man who is right wing, I will admit, very well written, however the message is quite skewed. Its such a left bomb. Clearly aimed at any one who is on the right side. Also, a lot of double standards with those generalisations calling out "rednecks" and what. Not all gays, Mexicans and blacks voted against Trump. I could link a video of a Mexican-American man completely destroying a leftist. Also, what is so brave about being PC? Its such a common opinion in both the USA and the UK. Nothing brave about accepting the status quo as fact. But besides all this, I love Rob Flynn and his vocal/lyrical ability, despite the fact that he may dislike me for my opinions. God Bless Mr. Flynn. Love him to bits

"Empowering the racists and 2nd Amendment thugs"

Most nonsensical line of a song I've ever heard and I've heard a lot of pop music.
Most Hated 22 ноября 2016 года в 21:38 57
Robb's starting to lose it, I think. Damn it.

Don't disrespect the queers or whomever, but it's OK to call people rednecks and imply that they're inferior. Double standards are totally rad.

"Gabe don't know shit Mark"
For one, I know how to spell and use proper punctuation. And English isn't even my first language!
"he is an infidel"
Oh, I didn't know you were muslim. You do know that the Agent Orange doesn't really approve of that, right?
"NO comprehension of American politics"
Firstly, I understand more of statesian politics and politics in general than most statesians. Secondly, America is continent, not a country. The US represents everything that is wrong about America.
"his side of The Atlantic"
Fun fact, I do speak the queen's English, because, fun fact, it's how it's supposed to sound and read. But we're on the same side of the said ocean. I'm an American. Born and raised in America. More specifically, the southern portion of the continent. I've never been to the United States, though.

I've been a Machine Head fan since "The More Things Change" tour. You guys came to Tennessee with VOD, Downset, Nerosis (I think) and MH. It was my first ever concert. I got on stage and stage dove when you guys covered Slayer's South of Heaven I believe it was. I was in awe and have been a fan ever since.

You keep bringing up "racism in metal" like black people are trying to convert to metal and get away from the rap/hiphop/thug genre and us "good ol' metal head white boys" are just having none of that and just completely turn our backs on black people who are listening to metal. It's like you never heard of Body Count, Sevendust, Killswitch Engaged, Sepultura, etc., being front manned by black people who the metal community welcomed with open arms because their riffs, their powerful songs and the fact that you can mosh and vent out all this pent up aggression within their music and lyrics. Not a single bullshit racist comment was EVER said about those guys from the metal community that I was involved with and this is in TENNESSEE the redneck, bible belt of America. NO ONE EVER said, nah, don't like those guys because they have a black dude in the band. It's bullshit.

I was reading one of your interviews that you were doing and it saddens me that you take one of Phil Anselmo's stupid mistakes and you try to pin this whole fuckin stupid stunt ON THE WHOLE METAL COMMUNITY. As far as I'm concerned, Phil hasn't been relevant since The Great Southern Trendkill. If the video wasn't posted do you know how many people would of even noticed his stupid act? About 10 people out of the 20 people that were at that show. So, stop with this dumb shit and let it go. For fuck's sake it's getting old. It's the same shit with cops, you have 1 fuckin idiot cop do something stupid and everyone is ready to go on a "free shopping spree" and burn the city down because of ONE stupid fuck out of the hundreds of thousands of people.

Why not ask the black community to clean up their streets, to stay focused in school and graduate, tell father's to stick with their kids/baby mamas and to teach them right? But, no, that's unheard of because the it's more logical to make up imaginary shit like the "30 white straight men" (because they can't be gay, trans, women, liberal, democrat, or any other label that doesn't fit the "agenda") out of the millions, that are considered "the man" are keeping them down because who has ever heard of a black man successfully making it out of the poor house by THINKING and making good life/career decisions?

The bottom line is, IF the INDIVIDUAL is TIRED of being poor, then the INDIVIDUAL should be WILLING to FREELY WORK HARD to GET OUT of the POOR LIFESTYLE. Just like if you see your lawn's grass needs to be mowed, you go out and mow the fuckin yard. You don't bitch and whine and cry about how hard the lawn mower is to push, or you have to go to the store to buy gas, or it's hot outside, etc., and sit around waiting for someone else to come mow your yard for free. You just go out and fuckin mow the goddamn yard.

I can't be certain, but it seems like a lot of Machine Head songs are born just like this one, then later grow into what you hear on the albums.

This "2nd Amendment thug" has supported you since before anyone knew who Machine Head was but please stay stuck in your uninformed CA liberal bubble. See how much more you like Muslims than rednecks when you get a real taste of Sharia. The people that ban song birds and execute little girls for trying to go to school are so awesome. It's really tolerant when they throw gays off the top of buildings. Let's be inclusive and bring as many of them here as possible because that's exactly what we need to advance tolerance. You think ISIS will embrace your difference? Good luck with that. How about a few less feelz and a little more critical thinking. Your beloved liberals are the most intolerant people in America and you're too stupid to see it. You treat blacks and other minorities like pets you have to take care of and savagely attack them if they dare think for themselves or try and escape the racist ghettos good liberals like LBJ condemned them to. Nothing says tolerance like calling people who disagree with you "the bad guys."

Thomas Starnes 23 ноября 2016 года в 05:05 6
I love this song. A part of me wants to hear it with the full band and amped up but I don't know if it would have the same affect. To anyone who is talking shit about this, keep in mind that metal, especially thrash metal, is a talking point against oppression and bigotry. Plus if you are such a big fan of Machine Head you would know Robb's stance. Just listen to "Slanderous" or watch his video on racism. Awesome song. Can't wait for the next album.
Andy Preece 15 декабря 2017 года в 13:37 7
Wow. This is one of the worst songs I've ever heard. The political attitude this song expresses is not one I personally share, which would be totally fine. What sucks is that never has the 'SJW' narrative been expressed in such shallow, ham-fisted and juvenile terms. it reads like it was written by a precocious 10 year old. The singing is embarrassing and so is the guitar playing. This is why political rock music always sucks ass, it's impossible to marry the subtleties of good political discourse with the high-flying emotion of music. The latter makes it impossible to make a point that isn't some overblown, wildly general cri de coeur.
Got a text from a friend the other day about Rob Flynn - 'Every time I see his name mentioned I automatically assume he's saying or doing something drenched in faggotry and I've never been wrong yet'

Matt Bree MH is my favorite band of all time, and I am fine with having opposing views, it's what I gave 4 years of my life for - freedom.
So I would never begrudge him his right to an opinion.
However, it seems he's gone the way of Gene Simmons. It all seems very PR.
After all...the best way to create a buzz about your band is to create contraversy!
It's a shame he attacks others for being racist and bigots and yet he creates a song attacking a segment of Americans.
It's really quite disappointing.
Travis Alan 22 ноября 2016 года в 19:41
Matt Bree ok i see what you mean. sorry i just assumed you were a sjw piss ass. but i think the song has "depth" but thats just your opinion
Matt Bree 22 ноября 2016 года в 19:33
It is appalling. from a musical perspective it is a joke. The lyrics are reactionary flim flam with absolutely no depth. The message is all very nice but it's just another case of Flynn jumping on the new bandwagon. In two months time there'll be some new scandal, like it will turn out Kanye West is a gay fish or something and you can bet Flynn will have a song about it. I can't wait to be honest, it's fucking hilarious!

Nopopo Lasturber 28 декабря 2016 года в 09:56
Sadly, this is true. From one of the greatest bands of groove scene, confident enough to accept different genres into their craft, even releasing an Ice-T cover in the process, to shitty whiny heavy metal with no real direction, purpose or feeling.

A real fucking tragedy, if you ask me.

Yesterday I told my sons "the good guys can win"
And that it made me happy about the world that we live in
But I had to assure them that it wouldn’t be for long
Without good men like us to carry on and be strong

I said “sons you are the future, so let this be a lesson”
There may come a day you have to fight off weakness and regression
Hope and greatness won today, the light ate the darkness
And both you look in my eyes, “we'll make it great for all”

In every step you take,
I'm with you all the way,
Cause I would die for you
And do what’s right for you
In hopes that when I’m gone
You’ll carry on these words I wrote for you

Til then…
I’ll sing

Stand your ground
Don’t let the bastards grind you down
Be bold, be great
Don’t let their poison make you frail
There’s truth, we'll make it great for all to see

Today I looked out to the world, thought "we've got work to do”
The swamp is thick with corruption, the ideologues run amuck
"Liberty" and "country" are the words they need to speak
A little “reason” a little “freedom”, and to stick to our principles

Ideologues thought they were on the right side of history
Empowering the globalists and corporate shills
Wall St and the billionaires, foreign money and foreign states
Saying “we're doing what's best for you so don't hestitate!”

But we refuse to accept your lies!
You won’t forget our name!
The MAGA generation, the glorious and the brave
The builders, workers, makers who do the dirty work
And keep the world running while the losers crybully and jerk

And so…
I’ll sing

Stand your ground
Don’t let the bastards grind you down
Be bold, be strong, be smart
Stick to your principles
And never lose track of your mission

People keep on lyings, dividing people for their profits
They misdirect the blame, obfuscate the reason
Throw hate on those who do great good and still are willing to
The protectors who keep you safe from killers, robbers, and rapists too
We're better off without the bad, we only want the good

Remember there are laws
Our guns ensure our freedom
Beware the ideologues
Who want you to be weak
We're never giving the gobalists the power to destroy our country

And so…
I’ll sing

Stand your ground
Don’t let the bastards distract you
Be bold, be strong, be smart
Stick to your principles
And never lose track of your mission

I don't know what is worse, the left-wing constantly thinking every right-wing fella is Hitler and that the world will end if a conservative is in "power," or the amount of folks of the political right that storm to any comment section to call some dude names for expressing his own political views (yet those same people also feel "PC culture" should die). Ahhh how much I love good ol' conventional 21st century this-or-that politics. USA USA USA
The Driver 24 ноября 2016 года в 07:15
Well, he at least calls out PC culture in the lyrics. I think it's all in context. Compare how George Carlin used certain words and why he used them vs people like Richard Spencer and his delivery....

I must say. This version is by far better than the finished version. This one flows perfectly. The final version has too much going on and loses its charm.

I'm shure we'll hear this song later on with the whole band and with a lot of destortion :D :D :D

Come on, wake up! The growing leftist totalitarianists created Trump and his victory. Not deeprooted "bigotry" and "racism". Should I note that even mexicans, POC, homosexuals and other minorities also voted for Trump? I used to think how metal musicians were critical thinkers but what I've seen lately is how they're all just blindly going with the mainstream PC narrative labeling everything remotely rightwingish as bigoted.

Compare when Capitalism "fails" to when Socialism "fails". The former declines for a few years and recovers, the latter collapses the entire nation and the people genuinely suffer. Socialism works fine until you run out of other people's money - which is inevitable when you decrease or remove the motivation to succeed - profit.
jim james 28 августа 2017 года в 08:54
Ville san You will find they live in closed communities and have to toe the line or be ostracized. How many metal bands over the years used confederate flags for imagery of being a rebel? Well the rebels run the roost now. What are they gonna do now? Show up with Bernie Sanders shirts and Mexican flags? Maybe they could promote the Aboriginal Australia flag. Its a rebel flag and isnt from some oppressive regime.

Nice deleteing negative comment when pointed out the real bullies are the lefties literally beating up people and killing them for a different opinion. The only facist are you guys. No different to the brown shirts of the weimar republic.

Please give us a studio recording of this song! Would be awesome to have both an acoustic version and an amped up version. Strong lyrics👊 Love it!

most of the greatest songwriters in history openly expressed their political stances through their music. politics and songwriting go hand-in-hand. just think what music today would be without the views of the vietnam era songwriters expressing their concerns through their music.
Teppichrasen 23 ноября 2016 года в 00:16 3
I really wouldn't mind if exactly this version of the song would be the last song on your next record. It probably would be a big contrast to the rest of the album and would end it with something different, raw and very hopeful and emotional.

Waaay better than the album version. This ins should habe been a hidden track on catharsis.

He needs to listen to James Hatfield and keep your personal politics to yourself. Especially in music as it alienates certain fans. I have listened to machine head since Through the ashes, but this song really pisses me off and blatantly shows what a hypocrite Robb is...

"He needs to listen to James Hatfield and keep your personal politics to yourself."

Can you please remind me what is the lyrical content of Master of Puppets (album) about?

Could the band please just fire this SJW poser?
jim james 28 августа 2017 года в 09:01
Tim Lepo Im a social justice warrior. I find sjws blms antifa and own them with facts until they drown in there own sweat from the rage, let em recover then own them with critical thinking until they drown in their own tears. Justice is served socially, not belligerently. The warrior part just means your wont back down and will stand your ground. Not go punch a nazi. Even though I have punched a lot of nazis but I punched a lot of black power too. But thats not the point. You cant win through violence anymore you automatically lose. So after punching nazis and black powers I made friends with them. They all just people whom society left by the wayside. Muslims on the other hand just run. No reasoning with them.
lern2swim 29 ноября 2016 года в 23:35
Learn what sjw actually means. Unless you feel that me calling you a redneck, inbred, bigoted idiot would also be correct.

Was this performed after the disaster was elected a few weeks ago? I am looking forward to the expected impeachment very soon! lol Great effort though Rob! Even though the hard words near the end were confronting they I understand why you whacked them in there as those idiots you are making a joke out of those who use those words by throwing the words in their faces with those lyrics by saying you will accept them.
