I think someone should let these guys know...

Tue, May 1, 2012 at 11:30 PM

Hey! I'm not a huge Godsmack fan or anything, They're all right, but I'm not a big metalhead. My dad likes them, though.
Anyway, I think someone really needs to let these guys know that the Westboro Baptist Church of "God Hates F**s" fame (I will not honor their little protest by typing the whole thing) uses the phrase "GodSmack" multiple times on their blog page. I was doing research for a project and stumbled upon it. With all the hate these people put out, I would sue for copyright infringement if I were these guys. I just wanted to bring this to their attention and to their fans' attention if they didn't already know.

    You can't copyright words. That'd be like me saying, "I want .15 every time someone says the word 'puffin'.

    And as for your godsmack/metal head comment, gs aren't metal. Lesson over.
    We like to talk big, vampires do. "I'm going to destroy the world." That's just tough-guy talk.The truth is, I like this world. You've got, dog racing, Manchester United. And you've got people. billions of people walking around like a happy meal on legs.

    but it would still be one of the more intelligent things you've said.

    And here we go....

    (I didn't know Giant Tiger was still around)

    I know everyone will not agree at this place but it should be a fun place, a place to hang and post, get to know good people. Argue different points but keeping in mind, not everyone thinks like you. It's differences that adds a variety to life.

    Most times I ignore the crap because to me, it's just to get a rise out of people and it works. And I'd like to think it's innocent fun. In the end, it's all just typing on a screen, it's how you take it.
    Fact - DG stirs the pot, but he does have funny comments a lot of the time. I'd like to think it's innocent fun.



    (and i will admit, I checked this over and over (and probably messed up) the spelling and it's or its. LMAO....thanks MistyA.....hehehehehe)

    Already know about this so called "Church". I just think we should let it be and not give them the time of day or attention even.

    Considering Godsmack's name derived from Sully liking the name of the AIC song, I am not sure how that would even work. The term "Godsmack" seems to have many different uses or meanings. AIC's song is a reference to drugs/drug use. Godsmack the band name is a reference to karma (refer back to the cold sore story) and this church is using it in the form of hate.

    The real fans of this band know what the bands name and meaning behind it stems from, so I don't think we should worry about anything else.
