Superunknown

A music review of 2019

Recommended Posts

Here's a rather hastily compiled music themed review of 2019. If you can Bingo on 4 bands or songs, let's have a beer! For added fun, add your own, should be an eclectic mix.

[First time thread starter, be gentle - mods delete move as needed]

This is intended as a bit of fun, please take it that way. Links to YT vids.

After last year’s prelimary final, many had Fell on Black Days. However, looking into 2020, it was fair to think we were heading into the Superunknown. Many thought after a bit of Get Some Go Again at the trade table, we were primed to become a Power Player, as obviously we all thought you Can’t Stop Progress.

However, early results indicated that other coaches had looked at Demon Game Plan 19 and said  Shallow Be Thy Game, Goodwin”. They studied well and appeared to Know Your Enemy. Our 2020 plan appeared to continue to consist of Bombs Away, which didn’t bode well. We had lost some Crucial Velocity, 2019 was but a Warped memory, and 2020 looked very Sick (or was it us supporters) as we were Outshined game after game. The Violins were playing a Eulogy for us early as we continued Falling Apart. Going from 4th to 17th was as big a surprise as a H00ker with a Pns. Perhaps some players thought 2020 would be a Victory Lap and some of the selections, according to Demonlanders, were just Like Suicide.

Some players looked as though they were thinking the ball was a Burden in My Hand, and some just looked like they had gone to Sleep. Steven May, who we all thought might be The Regulator, was for vast periods unsighted. Many Demonlanders who had been viewed as Profits of Doom after bad losses of 2018, appeared to in hindsight, be correct. Circus Maximus continued with aplomb, but a lot of players appeared to perhaps think this AFL gig was The Land of Pleasant Living, with many Demonlanders thinking said players needed to Wake Up and grab a Fistful of Steel. We no longer had Bulls on Parade as we did in 2018 (although CP5 started to look like one) and our Supporting Caste of 2018 were also MIA or traded.

The coach’s pressers felt like they were sometimes filled with Speculative Fiction (particularly post Syd R22) and there was much unrest about the coach on Demonland, with many indicating he was a Failed Imagineer. There was almost a Civil War on Demonland and it became clear some would not be Making Friends. Many really didn't want to become Todays Empire, Tomorrow’s Ashes and wanted to pen a letter to Dear Coaches Corner, pointing out what they thought obvious flaws in what was turning into a Funeral Procession. Some had advice on How to Clean Everything. Some Demonlanders also wanted a Status Update from President and or CEO.

Toward the end of the year it really was a Bad Scene, a total Failure. In round 22, we saw CP5 on the phone looking like he was ready to do a bit of Killing in the Name [Ed: privileged to be at this show], and he may have been thinking the lines from that song’s eponymous chorus. Some Demonlanders posited we may have a Township Rebellion on our hand, with one poster saying the inside word was some players could make a bid for Freedom from rather than taking a Bullet in the Head by staying on.

When all was said and done, it's perhaps true our season and result could only be reflected by one song: Bottom. This was compounded as a Flood of negativity washed over the club and we were a bit of a Laughing Stock. However, on the positive side, it gave the club some much needed Illumination [Ed: was anyone else at Offshore 2000? Epic], and shows what will be needed in 2020 to avoid being Down in a Hole again.

Looking into 2020, Demonlanders are no doubt hoping we Take the Power Back, and crack the whip on some players to Pushit, because if one song sums our our feeling post prelim, it’s Stinkfist. Prelims aren’t enough, we need more, nothing seems to satisfy (except a flag).

Here’s to 2020, where the Demons Blow Up the Outside World.

Go Dees.

Great thread.

I'm a reflective type of guy. 

This sums up my relationship with the Dee's this year

No more carefree laughter
Silence ever after
Walking through an empty house
Tears in my eyes
This is where the story ends
This is goodbye
Knowing me, knowing you (a-ha)
There is nothing we can do
Knowing me, knowing you (a-ha)
We just have to face it
This time we're through
Breaking up is never easy, I know
But I have to go
Knowing me, knowing you
It's the best I can do
Memories, good days, bad days
They'll be with me always
In these old familiar rooms
Children would play
Now there's only emptiness
Nothing to say
Knowing me, knowing you (a-ha)
There is nothing we can do
Knowing me, knowing you (a-ha)
We just have to face it
This time we're through
Breaking up

Very good - his Rusty Cage cover is ace. I obviously could have gone a lot wider with the music and left a lot of good stuff out (most is from my high rotation) this is a good one. Actually, a bunch of Pennywise songs sums us up, too.

I'd say this sums up the relationship between the players and coaches.

and the fans and the coaches.

Includes the classic line, "we'll try being kinder when you try being smarter"


The game plan could be summed up by the opening refrain from the wonderful Cosmic Psychos

One of my favourite bands in the world is touring next year and you just need to change the word "band" with "club" and it sums up our season:

 

and the seasons almost over, so another Psychos classic sums up spring time with no more time wasted watching us handball to each other 1m apart:

and... their doco is one of the best you'll see. Insane storyline: 

 

Nice thread @Superunknown

    QUEENS BIRTHDAY BLOCKBUSTER by Bananabender

    A little known fact for Victorians is that Queenslanders don’t celebrate the Queen's Birthday in June but rather in October. The scheduled date on this year’s calendar is 5 October, 2020. However, I have a suggestion for Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk and that is to move the date forward a month and a half to this Saturday so that the coming clash of traditional rivals, Melbourne and Collingwood, continues a longstanding tradition of our game — the Queen’s Birthday Blockbuster.

    THE TORRENS THUMPING 2.0 by George on the Outer

    Once again the banks of Adelaide’s Torrens River witnessed the Melbourne Football Club handing out another on-field thumping to its opponent. This time the hapless victim was North Melbourne and given it was only the club’s second win against them since 2007, it was a very satisfying outcome. The Demons got off to a slow start once again, looking listless from their four day break, a situation that wasn’t helped by Sam Weideman and Christian Petracca missing easy set shots. At the first bre

    THE 2020 EQUATION by Whispering Jack

    The 2020 equation is simple for the Melbourne Football Club – it must keep winning and it must take some big scalps during the second half of the season without dropping games against the lesser lights. The Demons have gone down this season to the 1st, 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th teams on the ladder including twice by less than a goal in games that could easily have gone the other way. Against that, they have beaten 11th, 13th, 14th and 18th and though they thumped the Crows during the week, the

    THE TORRENS THUMPING by George on the Outer

    THE TORRENS THUMPING - LEAVING THE DEMONS BEHIND That headline might lead a reader to think that Melbourne had lost badly in Adelaide but no!  It was actually the MFC which left it’s demons from the previous week behind as it applied the blowtorch to the Crows in the final quarter of their match at the Adelaide Oval and went on their merry way to record a 51 point win before their biggest crowd of the year (even if they were mainly hostile). Much had been made in the media about t

    STATE OF DEESASTER by the Oracle

    Melbourne’s circus caravan rolls into Adelaide on Wednesday night, an event that will put shivers up the spine of every Crows’ supporter as they look directly into the face of disaster. The flakey Demons left their home town a month ago and proceeded to rough up the Gold Coast Suns and Hawthorn in Sydney before moving on to the sunny Queensland where they missed by a bee’s diaphragm against the more or less local second-on-ladder Brisbane Lions. Then, they had to butter up against the top t

    OVERPOWERED by George on the Outer

    In a dismal display against Port Adelaide, Melbourne showed it had learnt nothing from their previous week’s loss to Brisbane. Port, in contrast, after losing to St.Kilda, addressed their failings, and as a result made the Demons look like a second-rate side.  Melbourne failed to score a goal in the first quarter, and the first time it seriously troubled the goal umpire was saved until a minute before half-time.  Did it get any better?  No with their meagre three goals for the sec

    DESPERATION OF THE MOMENT by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne’s recent win against Hawthorn highlighted how important Max Gawn’s ruck domination is for the team. A week later however, that domination continued but its effect was totally blunted by the Brisbane Lions midfield and, as a consequence, what could have been an easy win over a leading AFL contender turned into a disappointing but close loss and a sense of desperation now looms over the club as the halfway mark of the season approaches. This week’s opponent in Port Adelaide also und

    THE FOUR POINT FAIL by George on the Outer

    Melbourne went down by 4 points in a thrilling finish against Brisbane, but they failed by more than the 4 points.     They also failed to score the 4 points necessary to keep them in the race for the finals, and now find themselves sitting 6 points outside the top 8, but effectively 2 games outside (even though they have a game in hand).   The Demons had more than enough opportunities to win.  Six very easy shots on goal failed to bother the goal umpire with a major and ultimate

    NORTH OF THE BORDER PART 2 by The Oracle

    The travelling COVID circus moves north of the border yet again and, unless at some time in the near future, Papua New Guinea opens its borders, this could be the last time this phenomenon happens. And as fortune would dictate, the resurgent Demons are walking directly into the sights of the locals from the bright lights of Brizvegas to Carrara - the scene of some long-forgotten (and deservedly so) battles with one of the Lions’ former incarnations, namely, the Brisbane Bears. But unli

    ON THE NOSE by George on the Outer

    One of the Hawthorn Football Club’s valued sponsors is Azep® Nasal Spray and given the thrashing handed out to the Hawks in today’s game, it would appear that they need a huge supply of the sponsor’s product because they are simply on the nose. This condition was caused by the sheer dominance of the Demons, led magnificently by skipper Max Gawn with 27 hitouts and 22 disposals including two clearances. Around him in the middle were Christian Petracca with 29 touches, Clayton Oliver (also on

    THE PREMIER LEAGUE by Whispering Jack

    So the new man under the pump is Clarko, which demonstrates how sad but predictable the football media is these days. In an age where each AFL team’s form can be topsy turvy and unpredictability is the order of the day, the coach of a team that has played five out of the top six teams from the previous season and sits with a 3/3 win loss record is this week’s whipping boy.   This comes admittedly on the back of a bad fortnight from the Hawks who in recent years have exhibited an enormous

    SUNSMART by George on the Outer

    If you don’t want to get sunburnt, you follow the Sunsmart rules.  Melbourne took the advice and with their season on the line, avoided getting burnt by the Gold Coast Suns, with a gripping 17 point win. It was a match that could have gone either way, with the sides within a kick of each other for all but the final minutes of the final quarter. Melbourne had stretched the lead earlier in the game to 18 points, but that quickly evaporated to a neck and neck race to the finish.  Finally,
