Cutting yourself makes you popular

Niklas Kvarforth (Shining)

Swedish black/experimental/slash metal  band Shining had their first-ever single (whose name I can’t possibly type) certified gold, proving that you can cut yourself and be popular at the same time, unlike the high school fat chicks who treat their thighs with razors once a week after they’ve had too many donuts.

Where was I? Oh yeah, Shining. In case you’re not familiar, I’d recommend reading Guido’s hit article Pain is inspiration (a shining view on black metal), which was featured in yesterday’s Top 10, so go read that one as well. Band frontman Niklas Kvarforth had the following to say:

“I never thought I would have a Shining gold record hanging on my bathroom wall. I want thank all our past, present and future fans for helping us turn our world into a worse place to live, and pray for the day we will be able to infect other countries on such a big scale!”

Quite the attitude he’s got there. We feel great about this, but we’re scared the sudden fame might hit Niklas in the head. I mean, if he starts cutting himself with some pimped up knifes, it simply won’t be the same. Keep it real, dawg!
