Henry Rollins On Jungle Trance Hip Hop Fuckin’ Shit Music. Remixed.

YouTube Preview Image

“Non-music fuckhead” DJ Steve Porter probably “dicked around on a Macintosh” to come up with this remix of Henry Rollins’ rant against Jungle Trance Hip Hop Fuckin’ Shit Music.

Henry Rollins makes a colorful case against over-produced popular electronic music.

But Steve Porter totally turns Rollins’ rant inside out, turning it into a track ready to be put on a white label and sent to the clubs.

Think we have to chalk this battle up to Porter.

Let me know what you think in the comments!

  1. i think the real question is who would win in a fight between techno viking and henry rollins
    keep in mind techno viking doesn't have search and destroy tattooed on his back

  2. Speaking of "non-musical fuckheads", can anybody actually remember the last time Rollins released any music? Seems like he's just been on these long, self-congratulatory "spoken word" tours forever… or showing up in ultra-low-budget crap direct to video movies.

    Ah, nostalgia… remember when Black Flag was actually worth listening to?

    • what you’re talking bout is an instrumentalist. lots of composers don’t play instruments, they’re still musicians. lots of instrumentalists don’t compose, they’re still musicians. actually, anyone involved with the creation, production, performance, or archival of musical works can technically be called a musician.

      even the light guy at a live show, technically, of course.

  4. whoa whoa whoa, then what about people like me that make their own "sounds" in programs like Max/MSP or PD?!?

    Are you telling me Aphex Twin or Autechre aren't musicians?!? Both of which make their own sounds…

    Just because you don't like the process or method doesn't mean said method is FALSE. It just means different floats for different boats in different moats!

    And, btw I do play the guitar and keyboards as well but I don't think that in and of itself makes me anything besides a person who plays guitar and keyboards.

    I do agree about creating your own songs and compositions… But that CAN be done in many ways not just a couple… Broaden your horizons and open your mind a bit, you might just learn something.

  5. So if I beat some knives and forks off some pans, thats music. But if I use somebody elses knives and forks off some drums in a sequencer thats not music? hmmmm!

  7. I used to dig Rollins. Jay Leno had him make a quick stop by and chat one night, very entertaining. However I think the 70's was Rock n' Roll as it was destined to be, and fuck Rollins' "anti-drug" stance. Its okay to fight, spit, destroy stuff but drugs? Whoa, Henry no take 'em drugs. I have, and still do, and I create music in my studio, though I lack funds to promote my CD – sort of Alice In Chains / Megadeth style. Henry got funds, but no songs. No legacy. "Yeah, well he was in Black Flag. So what. Did they influence an entire generation like CSN&Y? Led Zeppelin? Aerosmith? Those bands now carry a whole new legion of fans. Henry makes a stupid video, as does DJ Steve Porter. Both are what is wrong with today's music. Got time for six pack abs? Then you ain't got time to make good music.

  8. Hey, cool. Playing pots and pans, throw in various sizes and shapes of Tupperware, record and add a TON of LSD effects and who knows? It'll be called Kitchen Khz. Like New Age, Garage etc. This new sound, Kitchen Khz. Add violins, mandolins, guitars, whatever. And lyrics, JUMP BACK, lyrics like: "I……..I bottled and canned / hired some dupes and life was oh so grand, c'os I…………..I waited, whhhhh, whhhhh, whack a whack a nipple whack and do some kinda chemical via sterile needle jack / push it in pull it out / make you wanna shout yeah I……………I………….I……………rue the day / hired some dupes to make my freeky products pay.

  9. clearly money and success have diminished Rollin's perception of what underground, experimentalism, status quo, DIY, sampling, John cage, blah blah blah actually means anymore.

    He is just jealous that people are getting off to things that he can't relate to.

    Would you rather go see a comedy show / spoken word for Henry Rollins or a DAft PUnk concert????

    No need to answer that….hahahahha

  10. he has a good point, i think people are getting the wrong idea about what rollins has said. he didnt say "all electronic music sucks" hes just dissing the "non music fuckheads" (the namecalling is uncalled for but hes talking about the people that go to clubs to hear "BOOM! BOOM! BOOM!" and call it music, and the people that make simple noises and have the nerve to call themselves artists). i had a PS1 game called MUSIC and i could make better sounds than a lot of what i hear today.
    PS he said "shitty drugs" not all drugs, im a ganjaman myself. and to all rollins haters : you can go fuck yourself, its comedy so grow some balls and stop bitching. Black flag is one of the best punk acts ever (even though thats just my opinion lol). and for the record i love ambience and can get into almost anything

  11. Rollins obviously knows nothing about electronic music history. Noby used MACS when it all began. Roland 303, Moogs, and other synthesizers and drum machines. Get your facts straight before you present an argument.

  12. Mac Remix McDjPorter is just reinforcing Rollins’ point. If you need further explanation just shove your finger in an electrical outlet, record that remix, listen to it and then try and call yourself an musician.

  13. Rollins has always been a ranter, it is the only thing he does well. One should not take his rants seriously, obviously there are some DJs who are brilliant beyond words, in contemprorary, i would say the likes of DJ Sasha and the original gurus like Afrika Bambaataa and Frankie knuckles to name a few.

    This video whilst funny is not to be taken seriously and the brother does needs some new material both for his rants and his music.
