This is a depressing song. It’s the conclusion to the character’s story on The Downward Spiral album, where he’s killed himself because he has absolutely nothing to live for. It’s clearly a very personal song to Trent. The way he sings it on the record with so much pain, it’s fantastic.
Then Johnny Cash covered it. He did a great job. He made the song his own, and made it personal. It feels like he knew he was near the end of his life and it just works so well because it’s so emotionally depressing. You can feel the hurt in his voice.
Now, Leona Lewis covers it. What the fuck does she have to be depressed about? She won that X Factor show a while ago, that must be a hard life. The song means nothing to her, she just sings it. She has a nice voice, sure. But there’s no emotion at all. It’s an emotionally depressing song. She clearly doesn’t understand it. It’s not a nice song to sing, it really isn’t.
You unfair fucks. 80% of their tickets are sold through these special “pre-sale” things and all that is left after these “pre-sales” is the nosebleeds.
So the premise of this is, some guy can get better tickets than me because he has some credit card that I don’t. Really? Fuck that. Complete bullshit. What about the dedicated fans that wait up all night for tickets to go on sale to the general public? Do they not even exist?
Getting tickets is all luck. It doesn’t matter if you’re a fan or not.
I was able to get tickets for a show that I wanted, but it’s still complete bullshit. It just angers me to know that some fans aren’t able to go to shows because they weren’t part of a special “pre-sale”. I also have a rant about scalpers, but I’ll save that for another day.
