    Default WTF? Some Band Ripped off VH's HFT Vid

    A new video by Escape The Fate rips off Van Halen’s classic “Hot For Teacher” video. What’s sad is, if you had not seen their video, and perhaps only heard their song on the radio, you would not be able to tell which one (out of thousands, it seems) of these new crappy bands that you were listening to.

    Yep, we were discussing this here the other day. It is indeed remarkable how lamely the video seems to go through the motions, without the benefit of any inspiration or charm. And where is the damned guitar solo?

    Sorry for the repost, I didn't see the orginal thread.

    Its amazing that someone would rip off the video like that. I found the song unlistenable and the guys in that band look like Motley Crue wanna-be's. They should have at least made some VH reference in the vid.

    What gets me is the guitars these guys have, and apparently can't really play 'em worth a damn. It's like a guy that owns a Ferrari, but never takes it out of second gear, ya know?

    Fucking GARBAGE!!! It sickens me what some of the idiots wrote for comments on youtube. I had to stop reading. None of them can spell, or write a coherent sentence. This hurts my head on so many levels.

    Maybe the director was trying to pay homage. At least there was some eye candy in it. However, drops of blood did come out of my ears and nose upon listening.

    What a horrible song and music.

    And...what did the song have to do with the kid's first day of school?

    You too!?

    What a fucking ripoff. It's almost funny seeing that video and hearing how bad the song is. Awesome. It's a lame ripoff, though. The Waldo intro at the beginning was fucking hilarious on the original, this one's just...awkward, not in the best way either.

    If that was suppose to be some kind of tribute to the band, it sucked . I think it was just a terrible rip-off. Video and song sucks..

    These guys dressed all metal but played like pussies.

    They should get run over by a bunch of speeding bulldozers.
