After mentioning Strapping Young Lad in yesterday’s post, I figured they deserved today’s song of the day. They’re one of my favourite metal bands of all time, and while i’m not religious, Devin Townsend is probably the closest thing I have to a personal saviour.

I think everyone has a song that represents adolescence, and all the confusing, difficult and awkward shit that inevitably comes with being a teenager. For me, it’s Detox. “This is only high school bullshit” became my mantra when I was 15, and to this day I still find it popping up in my mind when I start to lose my shit.

I first heard about Cop Shoot Cop when Strapping Young Lad covered a song of theirs called Room 429. Their stuff was really hard to find back in the day, but I eventually managed to track some down, and Any Day Now was one of the first songs I heard.

Aside from the having great lyrics (One of these days I’ll be a spectator in an audience of whores), and that oh-so tasty bass riff, I like to imagine the song is being sung by William ‘D-Fens’ Foster from Falling Down.
