Hey! Did you hear any funny, yet Atom and His Package-hating comments from friends/enemies? If they don't hurt my feelings too much, and they're funny, I'll put them up here! click here to email Atom meanness

______________________________________________________________________

Here's an email I received a little while ago along with my responses to his points in capital letters, comment by comment (it is my webpage, so the advantage of capital letters goes to me, yow! His is the un-CAPS lock stuff). Mr. "Victim" has since wrote back and apologized. Weird. As always, the misspellings are the author's.

Atom,
You are not anywhere near as clever as you think you are. and your songs are really annoying. come to think of it you are a complete fuckwit. you really fucking suck.

THE STUFF I DO IS NOT FOR EVERYONE. LUCKILY FOR YOU, IT SHOULDN'T BE THAT HARD TO AVOID.
doesnt it get boring singing about homosexuals and how you're better than everyone else?
I HAVE FUN WRITING AND PLAYING SONGS.
you are pushing back acceptance of gays with every fuvking stupid song you write.
HOW SO?
oh and you're shit at guitar.
OK. I NEVER CLAIMED TO BE GREAT. WHO CARES?
I like the Misfits, and Refused and most other shit.
I LIKE THEM TOO.
I am anti-Manufactured music.
I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT YOU MEAN BY 'MANUFACTURED MUSIC'.
So you see i am a regular punk dude, i dont like limp bizzzkit or korn or metallica. you are being dissed by someone who doesnt suck, im not a record company or a metal guy who misenterpreted "hats off too halford".
I DO NOT KNOW YOU. YOU ARE PERFECTLY FREE TO NOT LIKE WHAT I DO. THAT'S OKAY WITH ME.
Make a real band instead of this gimmicky bullshit.
I AM NOT QUITE CERTAIN WHY WHAT I DO BOTHERS YOU SO MUCH. I UNDERSTAND THAT WHAT I DO IT NOT FOR EVERYONE, BUT NOT SURE WHY SOMETHING SO EASILY AVOIDED WOULD IRRITATE YOU SO MUCH. I'M FLATTERED THAT I'M ABLE TO ANNOY YOU WITHOUT EVER HAVING SPOKEN TO YOU.
also your voice is shit and fucking annoying and the dead milkmen are so much better than you i can not put it into words.
OK.
cover the fucking youth of today though. Will you put this on your site?
PERHAPS I SHALL.
stop making music and be murdered by courtney love already. (cobaincase.com). Fuck you and your gay un-punk shit.
signed,
Choking Victim **(no affiliation with the band, this is just this fellow's 'cool' screen name. -Atom.

DON'T YOU THINK THAT THE USING THE WORD 'GAY' IN A DEROGATORY SENSE IS 'PUSHING BACK ACCEPTANCE OF GAYS' MORESO THAN MY WRITING A FEW ANTI-HOMOPHOBIC SONGS?
TAKE CARE, MR. 'VICTIM'
ATOM

Here's an email I received a little while ago along with my responses to his points in capital letters (it is my webpage, so the advantage of capital letters goes to me, yow!). It's from a fellow named Shawn, who apologized after he got my response. All text mistakes are from the person who wrote his part.

Atom,

I heard your cover of "where eagles dare" and was very displeased with the use of your talent. I decided to check out your web page to find that you have to get off on trashing other people's music as well as other people.

I read your commentary on slayer being nazis cause they show swastikas on their guitars. The ancient greeks have them all over their pottery. Does this mean that they are racist, obviously not. The swastika is just a symbol that was used by the nazis. Black members of motorcycle gangs sometimes have swastikas on their jackets.

You also refered to one of the other members of slayer calling somebody a faggot (note:in a response to a note re: the Slayer stuff) yet you go and call all metalheads homosexuals which makes you no better.
You are the dumbest fuck on the face of the earth that is gonna go no where in life and I hope that something very bad happens to you.
Shawn

MY RESPONSE:
SORRY YOU DON'T LIKE MY VERSION OF 'WHERE EAGLES DARE'. IN FACT, I'M NOT TRYING TO TRASH THE MISFITS AT ALL, AND AM QUITE A FAN OF DANZIG-ERA MISFITS. I JUST THOUGHT, AT THE TIME, THAT IT WOULD BE FUN. LUCKILY FOR YOU, IT'S NOT TOO HARD TO AVOID HEARING THE SONG.

I UNDERSTAND THAT THE SWASTIKA IS AN ANCIENT INDIAN SYMBOL FOR PEACE AND THAT IT CAN BE USED TO SYMBOLIZE DIFFERENT IDEAS. HOWEVER, YOU'D HAVE TO BE PRETTY SILLY TO THINK THAT THE SYMBOL CAN'T CARRY CERTAIN CONNOTATIONS OF NAZISM AND HATRED ESPECIALLY SINCE THE HOLOCAUST WAS IN RECENT TIMES. ALSO, PLEASE KEEP IN MIND THAT TODAY, THE SWASTIKA IS STILL USED BY LOTS OF DUMB HATE GROUPS. IT'S NOT AS IF THE SYMBOL HAS BEEN RETIRED BY THE DUMMIES, AND RECLAIMED BY PROGRESSIVE GROUPS. KNOW WHAT I MEAN? ALSO, IF YOU'VE READ MY RESPONSE TO A LETTER ABOUT THE SLAYER/NAZI THING (HTTP://www.szchuangxiong.com/MAIL.HTML AND SCROLL DOWN), I THINK I STATED PRETTY CLEARLY THAT I DOUBT THAT SLAYER HAVE SOME SORT OF NAZI AGENDA, AND THAT MOST LIKELY, KERRY KING IS SPORTING THE SWASTIKA FOR SHOCK/EVIL VALUE. HOWEVER, I STILL THINK IT'S IDIOTIC FOR HIM TO DO SO.

I THINK YOU'RE MISUNDERSTANDING A SONG OF MINE. I BELIEVE THAT YOU'RE REFERRING TO MY SONG 'HATS OFF TO HALFORD'. HATS OFF TO HALFORD IS A SONG WRITTEN ABOUT ROB HALFORD, THE FORMER SINGER OF BRITISH HEAVY METAL BAND JUDAS PRIEST. ROB HALFORD IS GAY, AND THE SONG SALUTES HIM FOR BEING OPENLY GAY IN THE WORLD OF METAL, BECAUSE HEAVY METAL, FOR THE MOST PART IS NOT KNOWN FOR ITS TOLERANCE OF HOMOSEXUALITY. I RESPECT ROB HALFORD IMMENSELY, AND THE SONG DOES NOT SAY THAT ALL METALHEADS ARE HOMOSEXUALS, SIMPLY THAT THERE ARE PEOPLE IN METAL WHO ARE GAY (NOT MEANT IN A DEROGATORY SENSE, BUT IN FACT, HOMOSEXUAL). PLEASE NOTE THAT I DO NOT THINK THAT ALL PEOPLE WHO LIKE METAL ARE HOMOPHOBIC. THERE ARE PLENTY OF RIGHT-ON METAL PEOPLE.

AND AS FOR YOU HOPING A "VERY BAD THING" HAPPENS TO ME? WOW. I'M IMPRESSED THAT I'VE BEEN ABLE TO IRRITATE YOU SO MUCH WITHOUT EVER CORRESPONDING WITH YOU. I HOPE YOU THINK MY RESPONSE HAS BEEN RESPECTFUL. TAKE CARE SHAWN.

LOVE, ATOM.

This email I received is great. All misusages of your/you're and their/they're are his.

Atom,

"I heard a song by Metallica on the radio called Tuesday's Gone, or something. My, how the mighty have fallen." <-- i saw this on your little pathetic tour diary

Now you insult Metallica??? What is your fucking problem?? You don't have to take out your jealous rage on them. Just because your not nearly as popular and your music is complete shit doesn't mean you have to go insult the greatest band ever to live. You aren't even worthy enough to mention there name you piece of trash. The mighty have fallen? I think not. That's why they top your album sales by only god knows how many times. That's why they attract big crowds, have enormous concerts and your playing in some hellholes. You should get a band together, because it seems that damn little machine of yours has more brains than you do. Your little girly voice and machine don't impress anyone, except the morons who buy your music.

Well, I hope you have fun, especially your with your pal Jeb, whoever the hell that is, probably your lover.

"I'm at the fellow who set up the show's house, and he has a really sweet dog. "

A sweet dog you say?? You sick homosexual pervert!

have fun doing whatever the hell you do

MY RESPONSE: For someone who finds me so irritating, you sure appear to spend energy thinking about me and reading my tour diary. Weird. You seem like a wonderful, intelligent human being Mr. Metal dude.... ----Atom.

Here's an email that I received the other day. All spellings with the letter "U" when it's inappropriate are Mr. Metalguy's.

ATOM, I AM A HUGE METAL FAN AND KNOW NOTHING ABOUT U. ALL I KNOW IS THAT U MAKE FUN OF METALHEADS AND CALL THEM GAY. WELL LET ME TELL U SOMETHIN U PIECE OF TRASH, A METALHEAD ISNT THE ONE WHO EMAILED MY FRIEND AND CALLED HIM A STUD. UR GARBAGE. I HOPE U GO OUT OF BUISINESS. HAHA. ASS

A METALHEAD WHO HATES U
METALMAN6875@aol.com
MY RESPONSE: His sentence about me calling his friend a stud is referring to an email I sent a friend of his who sent me a note telling me I was a loser and didn't like metal. I sent an email back to the below "Metalman" guy saying that I only make fun of intolerant moronic metalheads, and only call metalheads gay when they are in fact, homosexual. Duh. -----Atom

Here's an email that I received a while ago. All spelling mistakes are Mr. Parker's.

Hello Adam. My name is Bob Parker and i own a Canadian recording label called Elite Records. I was just browsing the Internet for personal purposes, and i managed to stumble onto your site. It seemed interesting what you do with the music synthesizor, and i decided to further pursue you. I downloaded some of your music. And i must say Adam. It sucked. It was the worst "music" i had heard in a while. I was browsing the net thinking i might be a ble to sponsor you because of all the good commentaries on your website about yourself. It turns out you are as conceided as your music licks ass. The good commentaries (most likely put up by you)are all bull shit. And dont even try to call yourself punk. It is an insult to the punk rock community. If you wish to put this email onto your website, feel free. You must email me first to let me know if you do, and then you may post it. Good day, and hopefully you havent quit your day job yet.

Ad placed in the zine Heartattack #20My retalitory Ad in Heartattack #21The Homeless Wonders are a rock outfit from Cheyenne, WY. They may or may not like me. You can't really tell... but it says on the note, "We tried to fart into a zip lock bag, but it didn't work." Some have told me that they threatened to drop pig's blood on me if I am to play in Laramie, WY but when confronted by me, they seemed like pretty okay guys.
Overheard! By Whom?
"It's a bad fucking sign when you have to set up equipment to Atom and His Package" Allegedly one of the guys from the band Roundhouse, while setting up to play at a show in Chicago
"You know the state of hardcore is sad when Atom and His Package is popular." Todd, the mean one from His Hero is Gone
