I wasn't sure where to post this so feel free to move this thread if it doesn't belong here! That said, the following news hit me like a truck...

Once again, we are persecuted. Many artists have joined an anti-Halloween movement cause they wanna 'bring an end to the horrible and inhumane tradition known as Halloween'. Damn, some people are funny. If those idiots think they can stop Halloween, they're totally wrong. People have been celebrating All Hallow's Eve for hundreds of years and it's not going to stop anytime soon. I think my little yard haunt might take another twist this year...

And speaking of those artists, guess who's the all time worst hypocrite? ELVIRA!!! According to the following link, she has joined the anti-Halloween movement!

Musicians Against Halloween: Indie Cynicism at Its Best

And now here's the link where you can listen to this barf-inducing song:

It appears to be satire

From the site:

A CELEBRATION OF HALLOWEEN

Halloween is a fun holiday, and as such, this song is meant to be fun. As a satire, it is a comment on the current climate of fear and western-centric benefit songs. Of course we don't really want to end Halloween: we're celebrating Halloween in all its spoooooky splendor. Think of it as both a trick…and a treat, for your ears!

ScareFX: I clicked on the link you posted and it also says: 'AN ALL STAR CAST SAYING “ENOUGH!” TO HALLOWEEN' and 'This anti-Halloween call-to-arms also stars a grab-bag of legends such as...'

Also, I checked on the internet and I've read some other articles and people say it really is an anti-Halloween movement. :confused:

The press release says

A BENEFIT FOR UNICEF

All proceeds are donated to UNICEF. This project is also intended to raise awareness of UNICEF's annual tradition of Trick-or-Treat For Halloween, wherein Kids Help Kids by going door-to-door collecting funds in boxes.
It's a satirical fund raiser.

Oh, **** those bands. I've never heard of most of those bands. The ones that I heard of, I don't listen to anyway. I'm a metal and punk guy, so, this doesn't affect me in any way. Are some or most of those bands emo? It wouldn't surprise me at all. Don't they have something better to do like cry over a girl that dumped them or something. :D

Ok everyone... it's a JOKE. It's being done as a satire. Read the entire post here and the entire article in the link given above to see that it's just a joke poking fun at another similar musical collaboration.
