To explain what I think Foundation is trying to say about the cover of Bane:
They feel offended because a band that has NOTHING to do with hardcore is making what seems to be a mockery of one of the best songs written by one of the best hardcore bands to ever exist. Is it a little selfish? Sure. Is it justified? Fuck yes. I See Stars doesn’t support hardcore. They don’t support piling into a garage to sweat it out for 20 minutes with a bunch of people. They don’t support scraping together $5 to see some garage band’s 2nd show. They support paying $35 for some shitty shirt covered in dinosaurs and making ridiculous sounding music.
That cover is so awful that it comes off as a joke, which is taken as disrespect and makes I See Stars look like assholes. Whether their intentions were good or not, this whole move was a bad idea. There’s no way they couldn’t have expected this kind of reaction.
if you ever think mythology is boring or serious business or whatever shit
just remember that cerberus, the hell-hound and guard dog of the underworld, comes from the root indo-european word ḱerberos, which evolved into the greek word kerberos, which got changed to cerberus when it went from greek to latin
ḱerberos means “spotted”
hades, lord of the dead, literally fucking named his pet dog spot
