Heene Boyz – The Youth Of America: A Video Breakdown

In any other election year, this might seem weird.

Yes, this video is political. I know there are those that “don’t care about politics,” but there’s less than 100 days until the next election. It’s going to be discussed. It happens. That’s just nature, Gunther.

What does this election have to do with metal? Plenty. Lots of musicians have already talked about the election, some more ridiculous than others. All Shall Perish even put out a shirt a few months ago that already hasn’t aged well. Words and merch are just that: words and merch. Most of these bands didn’t really go out of their way to write and record music for a particular candidate. There is one band, though, that decided they could not stand on the sidelines any longer. That band is Heene Boyz.

What, you haven’t heard of the Heene Boyz? You actually might have, just not under that name. Does the moniker “Balloon Boy” ring a bell? This family, who also appeared on a particularly unhinged episode of Wife Swap, created a bizarre hoax saying one of their sons was in a runaway balloon. This is a thing that really happened. Their thirst for fame didn’t stop there as the three sons created a metal band. Desperately clutching on to the last few fading seconds of their 15 minutes of fame, the band has released a new song and video called “The Youth Of America.” It is a pro-Donald Trump song.

Normally for these breakdowns, I’ll make funny comments or references about what is going on in the videos. I’m not going to do that this time. This is so unintentionally funny that nothing I say can top it. I’ve never had such strong “Get off my lawn” feelings in my life after watching this.

Just for kicks, here are the lyrics to this opus. All spelling and grammatical errors belong to the Heene Boyz.

Make America Great Again

Drudge Report? Alex Jones? Chinese chicken? Their message in the comment section about MK ULTRA? Good. Fucking. God. Make it stop. Literally everything about this is bad. I want them to get all the chemtrails.

On the one hand, I feel bad for giving these attention vultures what they want. On the other hand, it’s good that more people know they’re a freak show living inside of a dumpster fire. May the Lizard People smite us all with sets from the moon landing being hidden in Area 51 to prevent this from ever happening again.

      Outside of the Trump part, I agree. Couldn’t we just get (insert random black metal guy) instead?

  • I’m continually impressed by Richard Heene’s willingness to exploit his family for ten seconds of fame. I’m sure that won’t have any affect on his children in the future.

    • Commodus, Flusher Of Worlds

      Don’t expect a paycheck then! Right, Taj Mahal workers?

  • Waynecro

    If Hillary wins the election, she’ll take her mask off and reveal herself as a reptilian alien creature. If Trump wins, he’ll take his mask off and reveal himself as Hillary Clinton! There is only one outcome: Dinosaur-looking aliens are going to eat all the human babies.

    • more beer

      She already looks like a reptilian alien.

      • Max

        I’ve never seen a reptilian of either the extra-terrestrial nor earthly variety who was constantly looking thumbs-up surprised in every photo taken of her lately.

    • Max

      One thing I really do think is a bit conspiracy-like about this whole shebang is that apparently, Chelsea and Ivanka are really good friends. I mean, at the very least that must get a bit awkward, right? But learning that really did make me feel like the whole thing is a staged performance.

      • Waynecro

        It’s just too absurd not to be a staged performance. It’s the greatest tragicomedy since Waiting for Godot.

      • Commodus, Flusher Of Worlds

        Trump’s also donated to the Clintons several times, and invited Bill and Hillary to his wedding. Wonder how Chelsea feels about Trump openly calling on his supporters to assassinate her mom.

        • Max

          The only way it can’t be weird is if the whole thing is staged. Which isn’t, I reiterate, to say that it can’t just be real and weird.

    • Commodus, Flusher Of Worlds

      When he loses, his toupee will unhinge itself from his head and start attacking everyone, as his empty husk flops to the ground. And it’ll end up like that “it’s still alive!” scene from the end of Cloverfield.

      • more beer

        He puts that thing on with liquid nails. It isn’t going anywhere.

        • Commodus, Flusher Of Worlds

          Just you wait! When that alien overlord pops itself off his empty noggin, it’s gonna be something straight out of Pacific Rim!

          • more beer

            Nah because this guy hooked him up back in the day.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7FnAV1XbfKE

          • Commodus, Flusher Of Worlds

            I’d love hearing Hillary tell him to get his shine box during the debates! The bigger the meltdown (if he even shows up), the better!

          • more beer

            Debate? They are both the same what’s the point. Don’t give me the lesser of two evils bullshit. Because there is none of that this time around.

          • Commodus, Flusher Of Worlds

            Hardly, at least when it comes to debating. On one end, you have a master bullshitter that can pop on the shit-eating grin and actually bothers studying the issues, and on the other end, you got a senile (his constant repeating of sentences is a trademark symptom of Alzheimer’s and dementia, which his dad died from) circus peanut with the temperament of a 3 year old).

            In other news, and a sad one…………. our dog just gave birth to a dead puppy, which no one expected, since she was supposed spayed over a year ago (from what the doctor said). She’s been sick for a week or so now, and he said it was tapeworms. I just walked over to see what she was nibbling on, and ended up seeing that. Called my roomies down (it’s their dog), and yeah……

          • more beer

            That sucks about the dog. If Trump does get elected. It is because people are sick of policies which hurt the American people. Look what is happening in Milwaukee. That was a clean shooting by a black cop. Yet there are still riots. They blamed Trump for Islamophobia that got the imam shot in Queens the other day. It appears they guy was Hispanic. I doubt even if it was a hate crime that the guy was a Trump supporter. Funny they were out protesting with printed signs within hours of that. Yet when a radical extremist kills however many of us there isn’t a peep. Everyone should pull their heads out of their asses and vote for Gary Johnson. But that won’t happen because. Most of the population is stupid.

          • Commodus, Flusher Of Worlds

            Voting Johnson is simply bragging bragging rights. Take a close look at his platform, and it’s some of the worst of the Republicans with some doobies thrown in. Like Descartes once said, society is the soul of the people writ large, and here we are. So I can certainly agree that the vast majority of the people in America are morons for not demanding any better. For a while, for example, we laughed at how Tony Abbott became president of Australia, and we’re here choosing something much much worse than ol’ Tommy Dumb Dumb. Horrible as it may seem, I’ll take my chances with Hillary, considering how much worse the alternative is. Nope, not voting for her or any of these idiots (I would’ve voted for Sanders, if not for his Hugo Chavez-esque platform). I’d vote Tapir and go for supreme evil if anything!

          • more beer

            I have looked into Gary Johnson. He was the governor in a state in which I lived. He did a god job as governor. If you just want more of the same vote for either one of those idiots.

          • Commodus, Flusher Of Worlds

            *insert George Carlin “Why I Don’t Vote” video*

          • more beer

            Then you can’t say shit anyway.

          • Abradolf Lincler

            apparently, you and I are the only ones seeing the forest for the trees MB

          • more beer

            I can’t believe most people can’t see things for what they are and vote out the establishment. I have said it before I will say it again. Every incumbent politician should be on the unemployment line. The day after election day.

          • Commodus, Flusher Of Worlds

            Of course I can. I can honestly say I have nothing to do with this train wreck. Now you folks that knowingly put any of these idiots into office on the other hand………..

    • tertius_decimus

      True. The illusion of choice is reigning already over the world. You are obliged to choose from two equally horrific extremes.

  • In hindsight, perhaps those kids should’ve flown off in a balloon for real because their music is an abject failure.

    • If I was making a song ironically with the intent of making it as bad as possible, this is what it would sound like.

  • more beer

    This was announced 2 hours ago all I can say is fuck yea.

    • I’m beyond jealous that you get to see PM and Vermin Womb as much as you do. Got this PM shirt the other day. It’s already my new favorite shirt.

        I am jealous of that. I tried to get a scorn shirt but they didn’t have my size not even a size smaller. So I ended up buying an annihilation shirt instead.

      • Ayreonaut

        Sweet!

    • Commodus, Flusher Of Worlds

      Definitely a solid set! And judging by Demolition Hammer’s reunion shows/videos, they haven’t missed a beat after all these years.

      • more beer

        Nope. More to be announced too. It’s cool my old friends are doing well and headlining this.

  • Huggy Bear OH YEAH

    Hey guys, just a quick question: there was a heavy or power metal band championed here some time ago – a fantasy / space blend I think, possibly with warlocks and cybernetics, and a fairly trippy green, purple and black visual aesthetic. Could you please point me in the right direction?

    Edit: hahahaha, nevermind, it’s Gloryhammer, just popped up as a suggested video to Twilight Force :d Power metal while drunk is definitely something else.
