    Also, I'll mention the concept behind and sentiment of Sexless//No Sex actually seems extremely intriguing to me.

    Feigned misanthropy or not, how about listening to an artist because, I don't know, they're music is good? If I'm looking for hate, I'd much rather successfully-conveyed hatred than hatred expressed through really lame music despite it being genuine. Not saying anything about Iron Lung in particular, about whom I sit on the fence, but I'd disagree that the right response to someone's claim that Iron Lung are assholes is that this fact, in and of itself, is reason to listen to them.

    I love it when hc bands are legitimately filled with bile - that's what makes people like Mike from Gehenna or Chris Colohan so awesome. I'm a deeply high strung mofo myself, and it bugs the shit out of me whenever I see phony hc bands who trivialize misanthropy as a schtick when they don't even know what it's like to carry around that kind of gutwrenching rage in their day to day lives.
