Bad boys do it well

Hey what's with this new trend? Is this blog slowly turning into some kind of alternadudes annex or what?
I don't know why I'm in the mood for inked, pierced rockers these days but it seems I need some teenage rebellion - gosh, my immaturity is showing! Anyway, here, have three dirty guys taking a selfie.
(If you didn't know about Alternadudes, I didn't tell you about it. *cough* It could be summed up as Suicide Girls meet Gay Porn.)

Metal versus Hip-Hop

Are you tired of this old "metal versus hip-hop" argument? Musical communitarianism has always annoyed me, as if loving one prevented you from liking the other and vice-versa. I never understood what the big deal was.
So today the ditch is gone, and what's better than two hot dudes to bury the hatchet?
And to break the stereotypes a bit more, there's also a bearish version. Yes these two were real clichés...
... and I feel the need to remind us despite the lack of visibility there are a lot of people of color in metal and they are underrepresented.
(I can personally recommend, among maaany others, Leng Tche', a Belgian death-grind band with a very charismatic singer who sure knows how to heat a crowd ~saw him live, he's awesome!~, the famous Orphaned Land from Israel, or the powerful Brujeria psychos from Mexico.)
So let's stop this neverending war and when we are asked which is better between rock/metal and rap/hip-hop, let's just remember that...
