Accept – “Koolaid”

German hard rock and heavy metal band accept released a lyric video for a new track, “Koolaid” from their upcoming album, The Rise of Chaos, which comes out August 4th on Nuclear Blast Records.

“Koolaid” is a lame 1980s glam rock singalong with a generic riff to chant the idiotic chorus about Jim Jones and the Jonestown Massacre over. Accept’s career should drink cyanide laced Kool-Aid. I guess the band couldn’t call the track “Kool-Aid” for legal reasons. Who cares though as it sucks. I am surprised though that no prior rock bands made an idiotic song with a “Don’t drink the Kool-Aid” chorus.

Wolf states: “‘Koolaid’ is a well known flavored drink and has been mixed with Cyanide by a cult leader who made his congregation drink it: men, women & children. Everybody to get to heaven. Since then, the phrase ‚ÄĚdrinking the Kool-Aid” is referring to a person or group holding an unquestioned belief, argument, or philosophy without critical examination. That common fact, that people believe everything, when sold right, has intrigued me all my life. For me, being critical and alert all the time, is the key to every decision one makes. That is the main message!”

    Daniel, you still don’t know what real glam rock/ glam metal is. That song sounds like plain old 1980s heavy metal like Saxon, Krokus, or heck, even early-mid 1980s ACCEPT !
    I am going to guess you also hate all bands that also use a simple memorable chorus (eg. AC/DC, KISS, Metallica, Black Sabbath) ?

    Most young people these days probably do not know about Jonestown and cults like it, so the lyrics are ok. They might open a book or watch a documentary about it.

    The people at Jonestown drank Flavor Aid, not Kool-Aid. Useless trivia? Oh my, yes… Happy Sunday.

    Looks like they’re having a great time

    Bands should stop explaining what the message is.
    I don’t know if they are pressured into it by record companies, or if they want to chew their lyrics and music for us and spit it out on Facebook, but either way, it’s unfortunate trend.

    Glam Metal? Oh well… lame controversy is so lame.
