Godsmack Calls Out ISIS in Concert: "I'm Tired of This S--t"
Following Friday night's terrorist attacks in Paris, Godsmack frontman Sully Erna called out the "motherfuckers" in ISIS, the terror group claiming responsibility for the attacks, during a concert on Saturday night (Nov. 14).
Onstage at the Pearl Concert Theater at the Palms in Las Vegas, Erna sat down with an acoustic guitar and introduced the song "Serenity" by telling the crowd, "It doesn't matter if they're in another country, we're all human beings, and these motherfuckers in ISIS, I've gotta tell you… I hope at some point they can wipe out that shit and make it a fucking parking lot. I'm tired of this shit."
The frontman continued, ""So we're not gonna stop the show and ask you guys to kind of be quiet for a minute. We're just gonna do a song that I think kind of represents a moment like this. This is gonna be our version of a prayer. So, for whatever it's worth, you don't have to do a whole lot on here; maybe you can sing along with us. But whatever you do, just send out some really positive energy, because I am certain that a lot of people lost their children that night, a lot of people lost their parents that night. And so, it's our job as human beings to just kind of send out some good energy their way, you know what I mean? That's what we do. We're all good people."
Godsmack is wrapping up its run in support of last year's 1000hp album. Last month, the group released a new tune, "Inside Yourself," as a free download.
