Five Finger Death Punch getting a little desperate?

100 ladies for free to see these rock hunks.

 

This has got to be one of the lamest pr stints to ever grace rock n’ roll.

Coming from the modern "nu metal" heavy, angry bad ass band Five Finger Death Punch. 5FDP have had some pretty fair acclaim from the critics for their music and live show. And now they are pimping a food truck with amazing food aka Death Punch Lunch? And putting out press releases for ladies to come to the show for free.

We understand the ladies for free plug. Afterall, what sane attracitve woman would move her schedule around or shell out thirty bucks to be spooked by Chaka from Land of the Lost and friends.

But the Death Punch Lunch.

Are you cereal?

If Poison or Motley would have done this the critics and industry would have slayed them. This very band would have slayed them.

The release describes the burger and it’s toppings: "Applewood smoked bacon, pepper jack cheese and beer-soaked onions."

Applewood smoked bacon? WTF! This is whack.

Our guess is the sales of this new disc "War is the Answer" is falling a little short of their debut "Way of the Fist" and it’s sales. So, they have reached out a little bit to broaden their fan base.

Maybe they think that people who like hamburgers have not heard about the new disc yet?

Who knows.

As of this week "Way of  the Fist" has sold 378,250 copies. And "War is the Answer" has moved 157,201.

Those are very respectable numbers. But this whole burger deal sucks worse than the bassists ability to shave or trim that nest on his face.

Here is the press release put out today.

On a scale of lame to gay, we would rate this pr stint as totally gay.

Come on guys. For real?

They better sell a lot of those burgers to help pay for the extra tour bus. Rumor on the streets is the band can’t get along with frontman Ivan Moody and they are all taking a pay cut so he can have his own tour bus.

Sounds like there is a little LSD going on in 5FDP

Word to rock world, anyone got any old pics of these guys pre Death Punch? You know what we’re looking for. That bearded bassist in bleached hair and a head band or this singer looking like Beaver Cleaver in 6th grade for our exposed section. Bring it.
