Billy Milano Un-Retiring M.O.D., Still a Dingus

Despite previously announcing his retirement, Billy Milano is back with his long-running crossover project M.O.D.

Back in May, Billy Milano announced that he was cancelling scheduled festival appearances and hanging up the gloves on M.O.D. Now it appears that he’s gone back on his word and will release a new album, Busted, Broke and American, his first since 2007’s Red, White and Screwed (clearly taking pages out of the Toby Keith playbook here).

In a video posted to his website, Milano gives some additional details on his previous decision to shelve the record and quit touring, also his change of heart on those choices.

Things Milano notes: The record was inspired partly by the decline of his dog Buster’s health, it was initially shelved because of issues with his previous band members, and Billy believes Busted, Broke and American is “By far the best record [he’s] ever done”. Additionally, he notes that it will be released in January on CD Baby “Because [he doesn’t] give a fuck about the industry.” Though it might be a bit of wishful thinking that a label would take a chance on this album in the first place.

This all came to my attention because a member of the TovH Facebook group pointed out some of the moronic things a person named Billy Milano wrote in the comments of a Blabbermouth (ugh) post about the 30th anniversary reissue of Speak English or Die by S.O.D, his former project with Scott Ian, Dan Lilker, and Charlie Benante.

That dude (or more likely, whatever poor bastard that has to moderate Blabbermouth) deleted the comments. Handily, The PRP had the foresight to screenshot this dumb bullshit:

milanoracist

So many dumb things in one image.

Thoughts: Old people shouldn’t be allowed to use the Internet; Busted, Broke and American might sell with Stormfront mouthbreathers; I’m pretty sure the lyrics on Speak English or Die were supposed to be tongue-in-cheek, but Milano’s continued far-right-wing ways kinda ruin it; regardless, the riffs rule, and isn’t it weird that Scott Ian plays in a band with the dude from Fallout Boy now? Anyway, there is a 99.9999% chance I’ll never listen to Busted, Broke and American so I’m wondering why I even bothered writing this. Sunday afternoons, amirite? Currently working on better pieces, so feel free to use the comments below to post unrelated things if you’ve got siqq jams to share.

    I read the comments he posted and facepalmed. I’m excited for the new MOD album though.

    • Boss the Ross

      The comments are an unfortunate fact, but hell yes i am also excited for a new MOD album.

  • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

    SOD’s first album rules. Anthrax peaked with Among the Living. Don’t give a fuck about anything after that.

    • Vote for Jeb

      I liked Worship Music, but you’re spot-on with them peaking at Among the Living.

      • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

        Thanks doc. That’s always a thorn in my side, about those type of bands and people getting excited about a new record, etc.

      • Ted Nü-Djent ™

        Cough, Sound Of White Noise, cough.

    • Oily Kung Fu Bologna Riot

      Only album I liked all the way through is Fist Full Of Metal.

  • ¡Jajajajaja, es un racista! 😀

  • Paddlin’ Rites ov Beargod

    I think I liked some M.O.D songs I checked out some time ago. Some time being quite a long time in this particular case, so I might check the new album out too, or maybe not – entirely dependent if I got better things to do, like sleeping or stuff.

    Anyways, here’s three song by Winterwolf – a semi-reunion of Deathchain’s original line-up (at least in the beginning). They’ve also got Antti Boman (of Demilich, dingus) on guitar – he does some backg. vox too. They’ve only released one album so far but I just heard things that they’re reading for another one. Should be nice. That’s death metal for you bastards.

    • Scrimm

      I’ve been meaning to hunt this down forever.

      • Paddlin’ Rites ov Beargod

        Theres one copy left here. If the shipping costs don’t turn you off that is.
        http://www.levykauppax.fi/artist/winterwolf/cycle_of_the_werewolf/#cd

        Hoping that the sophomore will utilize Boman to greater extents.

        • Scrimm

          That would be a very good thing.

      • Paddlin’ Rites ov Beargod

        Hoping that the sophomore will utilize Boman to greater extents.

  • So what does SOD have to do with Anthrax? Where they the same band at one time? Is this MOD guy from both of those groups originally?

    • Paddlin’ Rites ov Beargod

      Scott Ian, Charlie Benante and Dan Lilker are what Anthrax had to do with S.O.D

    • SOD was a joke side project that those dudes put out in between doing Anthrax shit. MOD is Billy trying to carry on that sound without those other dudes.

      • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

        And Scott Ian’s best riffs.

        • Ever.

          • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

            I don’t know how that dude can still be in a band and be able to tour.

        • Ted Nü-Djent ™

          Scott Ians only riffs really

      • Boss the Ross

        Took the words out of my mouth.

        • ♫♫BOSS, BOSS, BOSS… ROSS IS THE BOSS♫♫

          GL

          • Boss the Ross

            Thank you for the serenade kind sir.

          • Thank you, boss.

            GL

      • Gotcha!

  • Nativian Taco

    Didn’t someone from extreme noise terror call Milano a racist pig at some point? That shit is funny.

  • I liked M.O.D. when I was an impressionable youth but when I revisit their stuff today, it’s basically garbage. Stupid people with keyboards are the worst.

    • Boss the Ross

      Come on man, USA for MOD is a fun record. Just turn your brain off for a bit and have fun.

      • I got my fill of that when I was younger, doesn’t do anything for me now.

        • Boss the Ross

          Fair enough.

  • Guppusmaximus

    Still spin the SOD & 1st MOD album occasionally. Don’t care for all the lyrics, but, the riffs (and overall music) are unfuckwithable even nowadays. Unfortunately, I have a hard time believing the new MOD will come close…

  • Oily Kung Fu Bologna Riot

    Red, White And Screwed is definitely a lift from Lewis Black’s book than Toby Keith. Toby Keith would be more like Red, White And Strapped (because, guns and ‘Murica, dagnabbit! *spits tobackie into a spitoon, stomps boots and fires six shooters into the air*)

    • upvote cuz “*spits tobackie into a spitoon, stomps boots and fires six shooters into the air*”

      (!!lol!!!)

  • Anyone give the new Brulvahnatu album a spin yet? Just started it, sounds killer so far.

          • COAL ROLL

            what he meant to say was empty Monster cans and Parliment Light packages

            And empty jars of Skoal.

          • …and Skoal cans, bro. STAYMINT

            Maybe they are.

          • Perhaps.

          • Oily Kung Fu Bologna Riot

            Maybe we’re joined at the head and don’t know it.

      RIP, coal rolling.

    • Janitor Jim Duggan

      Well shit, coal rolling is dead now. Everyone stop coal rolling, you cant equal this guy

      • I don’t know there are a number of flaws with this truck…

        1.) No xxxxxtra large mud flaps with women on them
        2.) No body/suspension lift
        3.) No 40″ tires (noob)
        4.) No extra wide side view mirrors
        5.) No “HUNTING” sticks (wtf was he thinking..)
        6.) Only has a 4 inch bolt on exhaust cap? ITS NOT EVEN CHROME
        7.) No custom license plate
        8.) No truck nuts or rifle holder (as mentioned)
        9.) Needs actual American and Confederate flags mounted to bed.
        10.) Could use a chainsaw in the bed, not a chair.

        Plenty left to perfect.

  • Mvthvr Shvbvbv 8

    Billy Milano with Howard Dean are my Toilet OTP.

    • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

      OTP?

      • Mvthvr Shvbvbv 8

        “One True Pairing”. One of the many terms I regret learning thanks to when I used to be on Tumblr.

        • COAL ROLL

          that’s an insult to HD…at least he has tact.

        • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

          Oh, I’ve never been on Tumblr, and I miss Howard. Dude knew his metal.

          • Oily Kung Fu Bologna Riot

            What, he got re-banhammered again on here?

          • Mvthvr Shvbvbv 8

            He did know his metal. Don’t go on Tumblr. Ever. I used it to find cool artwork and shit, but it’s not worth sifting through the headaches.

          • That dude got me into a ton of nasty black and death metal bands. Dude new his shit when it came to ugly sounding black metal. Just ugly, hateful, and savage metal in general.

          • Oily Kung Fu Bologna Riot

            Yep. He got me into several bands, including that one about burial rituals from around the world (I forget their name off the bat)

          • Shrimp in a Pizza Box

            Death Karma? I still have to listen to that.

          • Oily Kung Fu Bologna Riot

            That’s the one. Good shiat, m8.

          • Guppusmaximus

            Yea, what happened to him { for those of us who, like me, who aren’t aware of the Soap Opera}

    • Oily Kung Fu Bologna Riot
      • Shrimp in a Pizza Box

        Milano is also basically the biggest city in Italy, and it’s filled with racist dicks.

        • Oily Kung Fu Bologna Riot

          So I’ve heard.

          • Shrimp in a Pizza Box

            There’s a lot of racism in the whole of Italy, but most of it is because of the astonishing amount of illegal immigrants, but Milano is the dipshit central, good luck finding someone that looks at you with a straight face if you’re black.

  • Oily Kung Fu Bologna Riot

    Wow, those comments………….. even worse than usual for Blabbermouth, which is saying A LOT! *mind blown*

      • COAL ROLL

        that seems like a badge of honor considering how many people are gushing over HD in this here comments today

        • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

          Perhaps.

        • Janitor Jim Duggan

          It is a badge of honor. I remember when I was banned. It wasnt a good point in my life but I’m still remembered.

    • i.e RA666. The most notable.

      Fun fact: I sang Danger! High Voltage once at karaoke and brought the house down.

      There were no survivors.

    Great article, Joe! Billy Milano’s retirement from music was the only thing I ever respected about him. Too bad he didn’t stick with it.

  • Stockhausen

    On an unrelated note, I’m listening to Primitive Man. On a related note, Billy Milano is a primitive man.

    With this news, metal wins again!

    In other thoughts: The Monsters of Schlock are still out there having a blast and bringing the wow factor to life again and again.

    After breaking the record for motorcycles riding over a man laying on a bed of nails, One of the monsters, Burnaby Q. Orbax, had this to say about his next move: “I’m gonna get drunk, probably”.

    THAT’S FUCKIN’ METAL!
