SOUTH GATE, CALIFORNIA—On the heels of Kanye West’s recent name change to “Ye”, American hip-hop band Cypress Hill has now followed suit and changed its name to “Sigh”.
Critics allege that since Cypress is also considered a nu-metal band, this might cause some confusion between Cypress and the Japanese extreme metal band, Sigh. Counter-critics allege that no-one’s ever actually heard of Japanese extreme metal band, Sigh, so they won’t care.
Had this occurred six years ago instead of today, “Gangnam Style” hitmaker Psy (also pronounced “Sigh”) would have factored into the discussion, as well. But since he’s no longer relevant in North America, any confusion of the K-pop rapper with Cypress Hill or Japanese metal band Sigh will be nonexistent.
Personally, I couldn’t give a shit about any of these groups. I didn’t even want to write articles about popular music. It’s just a job; one I’m lucky to have, I guess.
Can I say ‘shit’ on these web-based stories?
