Sonisphere Reviews: The Used & Bjorn Again
Did Bjorn Again get pelted yesterday at Sonisphere? Find out here!
“An Abba tribute act playing a Metallica song…BOOOO!” shouts The
Used’s Bert McCracken (sic). He’s right, but the truth is, Bjorn Again
are probably getting a better response here than Bert’s band. There’s
no booing or bottles but this is a weak performance from the Utah
band. ‘Taste Of Ink’s vocal delivery is so poor, than you can hear the
7 people singing it back more than Mr McCracken. “I wanna say this
from the bottom of my heart…KISS MY ASS!!!” is the parting soundbite
from McCracken, but by that time everyone seems so bored they’ve
pissed off anyway. Fail.
We challenge anyone to find a stranger, more out of place festival
booking anywhere this Summer. According to the announcement prior to
Bjorn Again taking the stage, Metallica are the ones who asked them to
appear at Sonisphere today! The sight of thousands of metalheads
dancing to ‘Gimme Gimme Gimme’ (sic) and ‘Waterloo’ is quite
interesting to say the least, but if we’re honest it’s fucking balls.
But we don’t see a single bottle thrown and their cover of ‘Enter
Sandman’ gets the biggest early day cheer.
