PARMM – Parents Against Reprehensible Metal Music. Funniest. Site. EVAR.

Let’s go back in time, shall we? Not to a truly interesting period, such as the foundation of the Roman Empire, the courts of ancient Egypt or the active production years of ‘Kolchak – the Night Stalker’ but let’s go back to say. . . April 2008.

At that time, there was an ad campaign running on sites like Technorati for a group calling itself P.A.R.M.M. – Parents Against Reprehensible Metal Music. Indeed. I would count myself amongst them for I too hate REPREHENSIBLE metal (a LOT of 80’s ballads fell into this category, imho) but as the story goes these ads were actually a bait & switch campaign for the Toyota Matrix. By that I mean you click on the banners and instead of seeing a modern day witchburning site, you are being hard sold on the advantages of a foreign subcompact for your teens. David Meerman Scott tells about it best on his site HERE.

Ok then, ha ha – shame on us for thinking it might be a real group. It was all some dishonest marketing blah blah – but wait. A site for P.A.R.M.M does indeed exist, even to this day (HERE) – albeit with sparse content & only a generic email address for contact. Maybe they are for real? Could it be – is anyone really that abysmally ignorant?

Regardless, I encourage you to check out the ramblings of Gladys Montgomery and her bake sale cronies over at P.A.R.M.M. for a good chuckle. If it’s more of Toyota’s tricks then they’ve more cleverly buried their motives this time around. But if it IS for real. . . that’s just pathetic.

Be sure to check out their ‘Public Enemites’ list (that I aspire to be added to). Currently Marilyn Manson holds the top spot, but there are a few surprises like Saxon & Tygers of Pan Tang also making the list. What, no Gorgoroth!?! No Marduk!?!? No Vital Remains!?!?! And these gals call themselves a watchdog group!! Not even a single Black Metal band on the radar. Blatant devil worship and misogyny runs rampant in the lyrics of an entire subgenre while these dipshits are targeting – Saxon!?!

Way to waste the bandwidth, Gladys! Well done. . .

    You really make it appear so easy with your presentation but I find this topic to be really one thing that I believe I’d never understand. It sort of feels too complex and extremely huge for me. I am taking a look ahead in your subsequent submit, I will attempt to get the grasp of it!
