College students and music

musicology for everyoneI remember hearing about a student who turned in his final examination paper after only half an hour. He had not written answers to any of the questions. He only drew a tomb stone, with the epitaph: “sacred to the memory, which leaves me at times like this.” Here are some comments on tests and papers from students who might as well have followed his example. Enjoy!

Deathcore bands, and fans, do not know how to growl like a death metal band. They think it is cool to scream and make pig noises when it actually makes them look like a poser. Metal heads know how to growl well, and they sound good when they growl.
