Trends come and go, but gatekeeping nerds will always be insufferable in any decade. I have a few characters in Nineteen-Ninety-Something who exist only for purposes of catharsis, and Zeke fits that bill nicely - the little lumpy smelly misogynist who loves to talk shit about everyone else's tastes in entertainment. I've known blobs like this in my life. Some of them have hung out in my comments sections before, backseat-writing for years despite clearly not digging what I'm putting down. To which I have to defer to Matt Groening about one of the best parts of being a cartoonist: "It's vengeance!"
I am not an expert on Metallica, but after this strip I decided to try and listen both The Unforgiven and Enter Sandman, and before they even started singing in the first song I knew one thing: Zeke is stupider than I thought. And a hypocrite, dissing Metallica while wearing one of their shirts.
Honestly, Metallica hasn't really forgotten its roots. They really just try to change with the times. Which shows how flexible they are. In terms of music, I mean obviously their stuff from the 90's clicks with me. As for anything after that, I'm a little indifferent
Also, I wonder if that guy is okay after getting hit by a truck XD
As opinionated as I can be sometimes, I'm trying my hardest to avoid becoming this kind of douchebag.
On another note, when it comes to Metallica, I like both their 80s work and their 1991 album, but I'm a little unsure about everything after.
