I'm a RATM fan, but I'm partial to some Death Metal from time to time!
Having said that, even if you're not into either, I imagine you're closer to RATM than you are to Joe McElderry!
I use my trusty Zoom 707-II pedal to get the necessary crunch from my set up...
I've bought my copy anyway, so at least I've done my bit. I think the best thing to happen out of this is the £30,000 already donated to the UK Homeless charity Shelter. Also, the band are pledging to donate part of the proceeds to UK grass roots music charities to help underpriveliged kids get access to music.
