“I have never been more disgusted with an audience in my life. I wish we hadn’t played. We, Lamb of God, asked for 60 seconds of silence during our first set break to honor the dead children and teachers in Connecticut. It seemed appropriate — it’s a g–damned national tragedy. Most of the crowd complied, but several didn’t, some cursing and even laughing. I wanted to walk off stage. I am so disgusted right now. If you were one of those who wouldn’t shut up for 60 lousy second to honor 20 murdered children, go look in the mirror. You are looking at a piece of s—. Your parents are obviously pieces of s— too, because they raised you to behave with no dignity. To the fans who were respectful, I thank you. I am also sorry you have so many g–damned a–holes in your community. You should do something about that. This s— would not have happened at a Lamb of God show where I live and that is a fact. We have more manners. I am just disgusted — thoroughly disgusted. You yelling people give metal a band name. Screw that. You give humanity a bad name. Grow up. Your parents should have beaten some manners into you, you savage little beasts. I will go to bed, say a prayer for those suffering, and hope for a better day tomorrow, because tonight sucked.”—
Randy Blythe (singer of Lamb of God) After some audience members refused to have a minute of silence for the Connecticut school shooting.
