Yeah, it's not Metal, but it has a metal like riff, and this has to be one of the bloodiest videos ever made. So, in honor of Kirsten's birthday, Heavy Metal Sunday proudly presents Duran Duran - Careless Memory

1. You can ONLY answer 'Yes' or 'No'.

2. You are NOT ALLOWED to explain ANYTHING unless someone messages or comments you and asks—and, believe me, the temptation to explain some of these will be overwhelming. Nothing is exactly as it seems.

If you watched today's Heavy Metal Sunday, you might notice that one of the buildings destroyed is EMI Japan's headquarters. The band was pissed at their label for mishandling their debut album, and felt "massively ripped off" by the label. So they took the opportunity of their reunion tour to take a swipe at their old label.

I know how they feel.

Not sure if it shows, but I actually put some thought and planning into HMS. I like to plan two months ahead to make sure I have a good mix of new and old stuff, different subgenres, and interesting material. Since our trip to Montreal is fast approaching, I was thinking about doing something related to Quebec or Montreal in the mix. Alas, information and videos by Quebecois metal acts is rare. The closest thing I could find was Aldo Nova. But then it hit me. One of the best metal albums of all time, Queensrÿche's Operation: Mindcrime, was born when Geoff Tate and Michael Wilton found themselves in a small church in Quebec watching the interactions between a priest, a nun, and an obviously strung-out young man. From that chance encounter, they had the genesis of one of metals truly stunning efforts.

Great, I thought, I'll slap up something from Mindcrime! A quick look at YouTube showed that there were very tasty versions of The Needle Lies and Speak up. But Queensrÿche is an EMI act.. and EMI has disabled embedding on all their videos.

You freaking morons! I'm trying to expose your acts to an audience that may not have heard of Queensrÿche! Or any of the other bands I feature on HMS! That's part of the reason I've been doing this for almost two years. To show friends who may not be metal fans that there is a lot of good stuff out there. But you possessive idiots don't get that. Hell, it's not like I make money doing this.

Grrr.
