Fat Guys In Rock

The one good thing about Nu-Metal is that it pushed the boundaries of acceptable body image in rock music. Either that, or it is now statistically impossible to find enough guys to form a band in America without at least one being obese. Unfortunately, most of these fat lads are saddled with glum old shouty metal.

For a liberating blast of what fat lads in rock should really be aspiring too, check out the website of my current fave Scando-retro rockers. I'm not pretending to be ahead of any curve here, I've loved these guys for only a couple of years now, but they do have a great website full of streaming tracks and videos, if your connection can handle it.
