Obliterate What Makes You Weak!

Jamey Jasta, lead singer of Hatebreed (and a few other bands) and former host of Headbanger’s Ball, is one of the most positive voices in hardcore music. In case you’re not familiar with it, hardcore grew out of the 80s with bands like Suicidal Tendencies, Agnostic Front, and Black Flag and later mixed in a killer blend of thrash to create some of the most powerful riffs around. Jasta’s lyrics (see below) define the true meaning of “metal motivation.” The following video, “Destroy Everything,” is from their Supremacy album and the lyrics challenge you to destroy everything in your life that makes you weak:

Destroy Everything

A new life begins!

Destroy Everything
Obliterate what makes us weak
Destroy Everything
Decimate what threatens me

Cleanse this world with flame
End this, cleanse this
Rebuild and start again
Obliterate what makes us weak

End this and embrace the destruction
End this to embrace new life
NEW LIFE

Even an empty threat deserves a response you won’t soon forget
I must destroy everything that tries to infect
Even an empty threat deserves a response you won’t soon forget
I must destroy everything that tries to infect
Destroy Everything
Obliterate what makes us weak
Destroy Everything
Decimate what threatens me

Cleanse this world with flame
End this, cleanse this
Rebuild and start again
Obliterate what makes us weak

End this and embrace the destruction
End this to embrace new life
NEW LIFE
Even an empty threat deserves a response you won’t soon forget
I must destroy everything that tries to infect
Even an empty threat deserves a response you won’t soon forget
I must destroy everything that tries to infect

A new life begins

Destroy Everything
Obliterate what makes us weak
Destroy Everything
Decimate what threatens me
Destroy Everything
So a new life can begin

Destroy Everything
Rebuild and start again….again
