A Tough World

    Glenn Danzig vs Johnny Cash.


So I was listening to some music today, and I got to thinking, who is the toughest guy in the music industry?

Is it a guy from Slayer? Nah.

Marilyn Manson? Nope.

Slipknot? Nah, anyone who wears a mask isn't tough.

Who would be the toughest?

Ah ha! Glenn Danzig. He is one tough bastard. Lyrics are crazy and dark, I guess thats probably what he is going for..

Glenn Danzig played one of Christopher Walken's evil bastard angels in Prophecy 2, so you know he is bad ass. He also helped start one of the greatest bands ever, The Misfits. He fronts a band called Danzig now, which the band's symbol or logo is a big damn devil skull. Thats tough. And plus, you can see his nipples poking through his vinyl or leather shirt or whatever he is wearing in the picture above. And that is no easy task folks.

Holy shit. Johnny Cash. This guy defines toughness. Crack open a Thesaurus and listed right next to "adj. tough" would be "Cash, Johnny"

Just look at the picture above. This ain't no country bumpkin redneck singing, this is a stone cold gun slinger. The guy is so tough that he got kicked out and banned from the Grande Ole Opry. Now Im not quite sure what that is, but I think thats a pretty important place to be playing for a country singer. Johnny was probably like, "Yeah, well ya'll can kiss my ass, cuz I'll be coming back with my submachine you sumbitches! I'll rain fire up in this mutha fuck!"

That's more or less how it went.

Hmm, how would a person determine who is toughest between these two hard asses? A fight? Shit, Johnny Cash is almost 70 years old, Danzig would end Cash in a fight. Although I doubt it is below Danzig to beat up an old man, I dont think we will resort to that today.

Lyrics. Hell yes, let us take a look at these hard ass' lyrics. This could be a close call.

First off, we'll start with Danzig, I mean why not, he does have a hairy chest...or something..

Danzig's 7th House vs Johnny Cash's Folsom Prison Blues

Danzig's 7th House:
Girl I'm gonna make you come
Free your body with my gun
Girl I'm gonna make you come
Free your body with my gun

Um, ok, right. Danzig, go to your room. Damn. I dont know what the hell he means here, but I'm pretty sure it is dirty. Which can be tough, but I dont want to think of this guy doing anything with a woman. Or a man, or anything for that matter.

Johnny Cash's Folsom Prison Blues:
When I was just a baby, my mama told me, "Son,
Always be a good boy; don't ever play with guns."
But I shot a man in Reno, just to watch him die.
When I hear that whistle blowin' I hang my head and cry.

I bet there's rich folk eatin' in a fancy dining car.
They're prob'ly drinkin' coffee and smokin' big cigars,
But I know I had it comin', I know I can't be free,
But those people keep a movin', and that's what tortures me

Holy damn. Did you feel it? I did. Thats some tough music right there. Even though he never stayed in Folsom Prison, he played a couple shows there and even recorded an album there. Very nice touch. You can hear screams, etc in the background on the album. Johnny probably just kicked someone's ass, and they are crying about it....probably..

Johnny Cash: 1, Danzig: 0.
