    It's difficult to explain what I'm intending to ask...

    When CoB is playing this song to you, are they playing you a beat that tells about the living dead, or are they telling you about living beaten to death?

    I always thought it's like Livingdead Beat. Not Living Deadbeat.

    Living Deadbeat


    And deadbeat has nothing to do with getting beaten to death, it's a jobless bum that does nothing but drink and is a drain on society.

    Also, kinda like the actual title of the album ; Are You Dead (aka Trashed, Strung Out, etc...) Yet?

    Does anyone else think the Living Dead Beat intro sounds like Children of Dacadence? I mean the part where the drum beat comes in.

    Shit.. I think they got the idea from Nylon Beat, because of the female singer Jonna Kosonen.. You know like Alexi is playing his new riffs and says he's doing something about the living dead.. and he just says the living dead beat when he's telling which song he's talking about.. I thought that would've been super cool. But what you're saying suits the album's theme better.

    Dig up yourself from your grave -- Livingdead Beat
    LIKE the living dead we'll never die -- Living Deadbeat

    It's up to your taste I guess.. you know, whether it's about bums or zombies.. Actually I don't care; I realized a few days ago that bums actually look like the living dead.. so it's cool any way around.

    This one is cool: FUCK YOU BEAT! (like you discover someone you thought was dead to be alive)

    Or, just accept that a Deadbeat is a jobless drain on society and THAT is what the song is about.

    My personal opinion is alexi chose that name because he thought it was cool, without worrying about lyrics or anything

    I think it's probably cleverly symbolical, not so determined.. it's a hybrid of the two theories, you can think about it rationally or mythically.
