Politics is kinda making me " Yawn " at the moment .... DM should stick to drug addiction songs and sex stuff ...

I know what you mean. On the other hand it says A LOT about the current global zeitgeist, when even an apolitical band like DM starts to sing about revolution.

yeah, music is about escapism, apathy, and indifference after all. Lets get back to it...

Really disappointing - the song really is pretty terrible. DM's strength was never lyrics but these are really bad lyrics.

+1 at least they can go on tour now ... To be honest U2 , the Cure , and Depeche Mode have all kind of fizzled out musically .... I'll be fair and say Metallica too ...

Well, they say it's better to burn out than fade away ..... oh ffs, I'm waiting for HIM to fade away too :lol: (and take your "algorithms" with you :hihi: )

Forgive me, but didn't they just "come back" recently?

I appreciate the sentiment of the song, particularly at a time like this. And they were never apolitical. Just listen to any of their early albums.

Sadly, I have to say that the new song falls pretty flat for me too. The orchestration, the timing, the sad pastiche of their previous work... but at least their heart is in the right place.

Metallica TOO? I'd say they're at the top of the list. I stopped liking them after they threw a tantrum over Newsted and got a shitty rebound bass player. Trujillo is an overrated pile of shit.
