How did you discover Rob Zombie?
Started by The Professor living-dead-girl 2 years ago
I was looking through some of my parents CDs when i was little and when I saw la sexorcisto the first thought that came to my mind was 'I'm in love' So I began listening to it and I realized they were the songs my mom would listen to when I was really young.

I remember one night in 1993, around the beginning of 10th grade,,I was in the car with my parents, and they were cool enough to have the radio station on my favorite rock station..Suddenly, the DJ said " Beavis and Butthead really like these guys", and then he started playing Welcome to Planet MF..I liked it

As I was discovering my musical tastes and how it steered toward metal and rock, I remember seeing a band called White Zombie and thinking that is such a cool name for a band. Little after that I heard More Human Than Human on the radio and being amazed. Right after that, they played Dragula. It was when he was coming out with Hellbilly Deluxe. I was hooked though.

Your opinion of me is none of my concern :)

I remember in 1995, when I first saw the music video for More Human Than Human..I loved it. Loved the song, and the imagery in the video..After seeing it, I loved White Zombie even more, and I also remember hearing an interview on the radio around that time with Rob. He was talking about album art and something about how much more impressive it was on records than cds, especially because the difference in size..I thought that was interesting, because I had always appreciated album art.

Watching Crusty Demons when the first one came out ... it had a really good sound track and there were a couple of songs on there, the sound just blew my mind, I just had to find out who sang them ... they turned out to be Blur the Technicolour and Super Charger Heaven.

First heard Sexorcisto in high school, tape trading with a buddy. Bought it the next week, and have been into every release since. Astro Creep was huge at my high school... which was as it should have been.

I was around 11 and had virtually no musical upbringing. My parents were very protective and sheltered me. I didn't even really know what a cd was. A friend told me about this cool band he was listening to at his rocker hippie uncles house. It was Zombie. Simultaneously, I had subconsciously been listening to the tracks on the Twisted Metal video games and had been trying to figure out if anyone knew who the band was because I had become obsessed with the songs and had paused the game just to listen to the songs. I was completely sold when I saw how evil the album cover artwork for Hellbilly Deluxe looked. I had always been obsessed with horror films and never realized there could be "horror music". The rest is history. It was the first hard rock album I ever bought. It is still one of my all time favorite albums ever.

My brother told me, "Hey Mary there's a song out there for you." I said "what?" He didn't say anything else. Then I was with my sister and friends at a dance club bar when they played Thunder Kiss. I was born in 65. So I went to my brother and said, "ooh yeaa, I see now what you mean." Then, a while later after that, my sister's husband at the time, came up to me really excited like and said "Mary, Mary, you HAVE to hear this. This will blow your mind away. I think this was made just for you." And I was like, "huh, what?" (what the fuck?) He kind of scared me, or got me by surprise. So he tells me to come over to his truck, that he has the CD and he'll play it for me. I went in the truck, sat down, looked at the CD and it was Devil Music Sexorcisto...hahahaa...I thought what the fuck, why does everyone think I'm the devil or something? So I listened to the music and thought, yep, that sounds like it's talking to me. I thanked him and then left. Yea it's really weird how these wonderful people, like Rob Zombie, are around to help us people, like me, feel less alone in this weird world. I wondered how anybody knew though. I was always keeping a tight lid on it, I mean hiding everything. But my little sister Rosy, when I was in Toronto at the age of 21, she sent this poem entitle "The 80 Legions of Belialith" and she said it was about me. I'm like, oh fucking gaud. What the fuck? My little angel sister Rosy? writing a demonic style poem? Ohly shit! She said she read the book that my older sister told me to read, but I don't read romance, and said that it does remind her of me. My older sister told me the same, but I didn't believe her. Finally when I got back home I read the damned romance book and thought, haha, well wow, it does. That's where I got my nickname. From my sister Rosy, when she sent me that poem. Yea. Rob Zombie is a hit with a hell of a lot of people. A guy I dated just a couple years ago, said his little sister, his goody-two-shoes sister LOVES Rob Zombie. Think. This guy "talks" to a wide audience. Love you Rob.

WoW, Tyrannosaurus Rex, you became a fan because of the Halloween remake, that is cool. Very refreshing to hear after being a certain horror sites where certain Halloween fans won't stop bitching about the Halloween remakes.

The Professor Tyrannosaurus Rex replied 2 years ago...

Yeah, I know how much the horror fans "love" the two new Halloween movies, but they ignore the fact that Halloween part 5-8, especially part 8 were ten times shittier than Robs movies could be. The news that he was about to remake that classic brought me to the him. The following days I heard every Rob Zombie song who was on YouTube at that time. Then I bought my copies of Hellbilly Deluxe and Zombie Live. Then came the movies. And nowadays I've my big Rob Zombie collection. I don't think many horror fans like those comments, but I really don't care. Robs Halloween has a special place in my heart because it was a movie of my youth.

Have you seen Rob in concert? If not, you should go, I had so much fun at all of his concerts I went to..Especially the last two. Yeah, those horror fans completely ignore how much Halloween part 8 sucked..I couldn't even finish watching it, I hated it that much..I was just thankful I saw it on either HBO or Cinemax and I didn't buy a ticket for it. Halloween H20 sucked too. But, certain people seem to forget that, and just bitch and bitch about the swearing in Rob's Halloween films..As if they were the only horror movies with swearing..For instance I just watched Shaun of the Dead on tv last night, I hadn't seen it in awhile, and I never noticed how much swearing there was in it, until I noticed how much of the dialogue was beeped out. And, ever read a Stephen King book? Lots of naughty language in his books..

Rob by far has one of the best shows I've seen. I've seen everything from Metallica to Carrie Underwood (Shush! Shes HOT!) to Slipknot and I can tell you first hand Robs shows are like a great Mind Fuck, if you will! Best time of my life! Rock The Motherfucker!

I was introduced to Zombies music in 1999. My cousin had the Hellbilly Deluxe cd and I listened to it on the Sony walkman. for a while. Phantom Stranger was my first favorite on the cd at the time. Also I played the twisted metal games and noticed his music was on their too.

My love of horror movies is what led me to Rob's music. I read that he was a big horror fan as well and used sound bytes and references to the genre in his music. 'American Music To Strip By' was my first Zombie purchase and I fell in love right there and then. I immediately bought the 3 major White Zombie releases as well as Rob's first solo disc 'Hellbilly Deluxe'.

Roughly a decade ago I found some of my step-dad's cds in the basement, one was Hellbilly Deluxe. I took it and listened to it and since then I have done everything in my power to obtain all his records solo and White Zombie.

I had heard about White Zombie for quite awhile by the time I was 16, but never heard any of their music that I was aware of. Late 1 Friday night in '96 I was watching ECW and they featured a highlight video that encorporated WZ's "Thunder Kiss '65" video. I was blown away, to be sure. Whitin the next week or so I was a music store and bought the cassette for La Sexorcisto and that was it... I was HOOKED!

Astro-Creep days for me too. It was an album that was a little different to the straight up metal I was listening to back in the early 1990s. You've got to remember it was the final days of Grunge and we'd been force-fed a diet of Nirvana, Pearl Jam and Soundgarden for a few years; as a group of dedicated Metal-Heads we'd sort of pulled up the drawbrige and become entrenched in the scraps of real metal that we were made to live on in those days. It was the harder hitting stuff, like Pantera, Fear Factory and the always brilliant Sepultura that saw us through those dark times (remember that Metallica had been out on tour since 1991 with the Black Album, Guns N Roses had become Axl's vanity project and was as bloated and turgid as its vocalist and even the mighty Iron Maiden had lost Bruce Dickinson and replaced him with Blaze Bayley.) 
I first saw Rob Zombie perform live when White Zombie played at Donington Park in 1995 as part of Metallica's Escape from the Studio festival. WZ were midway up a bill that included: Corrosion of Conformity, Warrior Soul, Machine Head, White Zombie, Slash's Snakepit, Slayer, Skid Row, Therapy? and Metallica. Unsually for England it didn't rain (much) that day.
White Zombie's industrial sound was fresh and new - certainly in the mainstream - back in those days and I still remember Rob bounding around the Donington stage like a wild man while performing Super Charger Heaven. The performance was also notable because Sean Yseult was only the second woman to play a festival at Donington Park since its inception in 1980. How times change.

And everything under the sun is in tune, but the sun is eclipsed by the moon.

I first heard Rob Zombie Dragula on KROQ when I was younger and was blown away. I was pretty much in my 80s punk band phase until that point. I loved the beat and he was the coolest dude i ever saw in a music video. I have always been a horror flick fan since i was like 6 and effin loved his music videos. Pretty much been a fan ever since got all his cds and then went back and got all White Zombie stuff. Lots of good times to his tunes growing up and pretty awesome parties. His music still till this day can get me up and wanna dance. Great workout music while im at the gym these days. I'll never forget the Zombie concert I went to in Hollywood and rocked out during the entire set. I been to a bunch of concerts and only 2 have gotten me to really headbang or dance by the mosh pit and that will be Zombie and Ministry. Rob really puts on an awesome show and you can tell he wants to make sure his fans have a good time. Best stage presence out of everyone i have ever seen including NIN and Marilyn Manson which in my opinion were the most boring concerts i've been to for poor audience interaction and presence.
