    I liked the part when Anna farted in Norway's general direction.
    We need more straightforward people like her.

    It wasn't in Norway's general direction.
    We need to pay more straightforward attention to threads :p

    Thanks for the update, soleald. I wonder if they're on the Billboard chart? One must subscribe to the 'zine in order to view the charts online. (Does anyone here from the US subscribe?)

    So how about radio airplay in those countries you listed? Most major rock stations here in the US are clueless. I've noticed very few (if any) non-American, non-British, non-Canadian, non-Aussie bands get the attention of US radio programmers. Of course this is excluding the underground and online radio stations. No, the big media conglomerate rock stations here can't even come to terms with the "Metal" name for the genre. They call the new breed of hard n heavy music "Active Rock." (hah!) Their idea of "international," that I've heard so far, includes maybe Rammstein and The Scorpions. Here's Chicago one and only "Active Rock" station's current Top 10 as of yesterday:

    1. Mötley Crüe
    2. Alter Bridge
    3. Submersed
    4. Sevendust
    5. Slipknot
    6. Damageplan
    7. Velvet Revolver
    8. Cradle of Filth
    9. Megadeth
    10. Breaking Benjamin

    Here is another link to thread at Chicago Radio board http://members5.boardhost.com/Crow_On/msg/36132.html that will illustrate how much these dicks don't care about the music. They only care about their $bottom line$ 'kin assholes.

    i don't think they're on any "standard playlist", but they've been interviewed at a couple of shows on swedish channel p3 (and in connection to one of them they played - i'm not quite certain which it was - the new build or lost to apathy). :)
