Proof That Every Modern Metalcore Song More Or Less Sounds The Same

We owe a bit of thanks to our friends at Substream for this piece of content.

YouTube comedian Jarrod Alonge has been at the top of our most requested blog guest list for the better part of the last year. He’s not a writer or a musician, at least not in the classical sense, but his parodies of current alternative music culture are some of the best video material available online today. You may have never seen it before, but chances are someone you know has, especially if they’re between the ages of fifteen and twenty-four.

Recently, Alonge’s announced plans to release an album titled Beating A Dead Horse that will filled with the parody songs he has written under various aliases. Many of the songs have obviously already been shared with the public, but there are a few new tracks as well, which Alonge has slowly been sharing to build excitement for the record’s release. His latest, “Hey Jarrod, What’s That Song Again?” skewers the entire metalcore world in just under five minutes. You can hear the song, which takes aim at similarities in the material by bands like A Day To Remember, Emarosa, Sleeping With Sirens, Underoath, For Today, Blessthefall, and more, above.
