Fuck It All: In Celebration Of Sweary Metal
Sometimes it's good to swear. A lot. Loudly.
In a recent interview, Slipknot's Chris Fehn said he doesn't like songs being censored. We're all for freedom of expression and a well placed 'fuck' every now and again, but it got us thinking: what songs would really make our mums blush were they to exude from the radio? While this is by no means a definitive list, we thought we'd bring you a smattering of 'fucks', 'shits' and 'the C word' from various purveyors of profanity. This is obviously not safe for work.
Frankenstein Drag Queens From Planet 13 – I Love To Say Fuck
Kicking things off, we have Wednesday 13 and his drag queens telling us how much he loves to say the F word. The bloke is known for his potty mouth (see Mr. Motherfucker, Let's Fuck and Motherfucker, I Don't Care for confirmation) but I Love To Say Fuck nakedly exposes his undying allegiance to fuck – he says it while he's driving his car, while he's walking in the park and, most importantly, this is an exercise he repeats daily. Such is the longevity of fuck, the song has been re-recorded by both Murderdolls and Wednesday's solo outfit in ensuing years.
Strapping Young Lad – You Suck
Now known mainly for manning an intergalactic sock puppet and writing some of the most immersive, downright sublime music on the planet, Devin Townsend was once a very angry young man.

Take You Suck, for example: girlfriends, bands and YOU are accused of fucking sucking, you fucking fucks. Never has white-hot rage been so brilliantly goofy.
