Dirty Deeds

Headline: Schoolgirl 'stabbed for love of AC/DC'

She had been the victim of a string of attacks, hreats and had even received prank calls at home because she is what is known as "a metaler", Guildford Crown Court heard today.

Some things never change. When I was young everyone thought the rockers were the ones who started all of the trouble when, in all actuality, it was the GoGos-listening-popular crowd who were the evil ones.

How could anyone possibly be considered nice when they had a little alligator displayed on their upper left side of their sweaters? That was the first clue.

Who are they listening to now, I wonder - Ashley Simpson? That would certainly make me want to put an eye out but, more than likely, my own.

I feel sorry for the girl and I hope she doesn't let this deter her from continuing to have her own style. If I could give her some advice it would be simply this.

When others consider you to be a Problem Child, don't let them Walk All Over You because, in my opinion, The Girl's Got Rhythm.

In other words, I'm sure this incident has taught you that It's A Long Way to the Top if you Wanna to Rock and Roll but once you're feeling better, feel free to Have a Drink on Me.

Last but not least, always know that everyone who reads this article will say to themselves, For Those About to Rock - We Salute You!

Oh, and one more thing, you'll look much better than them at your first class reunion.

Mindy, I know how you feel, but grounded for being a vampire? Well, that just sucks! Anne Rice made vampires cool in my area, so I was off of the hook. :)

If they give her anymore hassle, she should just say "Let there be rock"

and there was rock...

Ultra: yes, and if she keeps a Stiff Upper Lip, she should be okay.

For some reason there's a really nasty tendency for kids who like Emo to get singled out in the UK. I suggest they mistook her as an Emo kid.

It's horrible the way you can be picked on for the music and image that you like, but we've had this problem for years.

Vampires are hot!

Kids can be so cruel, even more cruel that adults at times.

As a side comment, have you heard the new Girls Got Rhythm CD that is all-girl tribute bands covering metal classics? For instance, the Whole Lotta Rosies do "Dog Eat Dog"

Ben & Phoenix, yes things haven't changed a bit - let's go kick their ass. :)

Ray: Thanks for the tip, I have not heard of that CD before but will check it out. :)
