Popular Songs with Lyrical Mistakes

In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida

Notably one of the most notoriously famous songs for it’s interesting title and lyrics, Iron Butterfly’s In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida was the product of a night of over-indulgence. Originally intended to be titled “In The Garden of Eden”, the story goes, Vocalist Doug Ingle wrote the title on the demo copy as we see it appear now while heavily under the influence. Ironically enough, the record company tasked with producing the 17 plus minute track decided to keep the name as it sounded, “Exotic” according to SongFacts, which would help them stand out to the public alongside The Beatles and Rolling Stones who had been drawing from Indian influence.

Uneasy Rider

There’s no doubt in our minds Charlie Daniels is a hell of a musician and one of, if not the best, to ever pick up the fiddle! Now as far as a mathematician goes, maybe not so much. Let’s break down the set up to the Uneasy Rider fight scene for a second, “Jes’ when I thought I’d get outta there with my skin
These five big dude come strollin’ in
With this one old drunk chick and some fella with green teeth” so okay not five but… Six guys right? But hey, the benefit of the doubt, maybe one of those five just deserved some more explanation due to the natural color of his teeth. Now let’s fast-forward a few verses, “Now the last thing I wanted was to get into a fight
In Jackson Mississippi on a Saturday night
‘Specially when there were three of them and only one of me”, so now it’s three guys? Charlie, buddy, I don’t want to call you a liar here but your epic tale of how you escaped hillbilly hell maybe a bit of a stretch, seeing as there are so many inconsistencies. Then again, math was definitely my worst subject.

Wish You Were Here

While not exactly an unintended “lyric” this iconic piece of Pink Floyd history definitely deserves to make the list. If you’ve ever sat down and listened to the popular, Wish you were here, you may have noticed a pretty audible cough around the :44 marker. You’re not alone and you’re not crazy, the cough was left in the final track much to the disdain of the one responsible for it, front man David Gilmour. Allegedly, according to SonicScoop.com, this is what prompted Gilmour to give up smoking.

Hey Jude

Prepare your ears for this one! Near the 2:55 mark of The Beatles famous Hey Jude, should you listen closely you can audibly hear one Sir Paul McCartney, uttering “fucking hell” upon messing up a chord. Now while this clearly was unintentional, the decision to keep it in was not! The story goes that Lennon and the others found it so funny and being it was rather quiet under the music, just to leave it in the final cut. So, next time your local oldies station decides to spin the acclaimed track, keep your ears open to see if the station heads have caught on, or if you need to have a talk with the FCC.

Polly

Never the prototypical musician, Kurt Cobain was well documented for his unique approach to his music. From his throat-centric singing to his self-taught guitar techniques, Kurt could turn what some would call being “untrained” into pure gold. During the recording of Nirvana’s Polly, Cobain is audibly off on his timing coming into the third verse of the song resulting in him getting in a quick “Polly Said” before catching himself. While thia can easily be mistaken as a quick refrain before the final verse, it was completely unintentional. However, after recording fellow bandmates Dave Grohl and Krist Novoselic allegedly liked how this little slip-up sounded so much they kept it in the final cut! Unintentional? Could’ve fooled us!

Bizarre Items from Musicians that Sold for Ridiculous Amounts of Money

How much would you be willing to pay for an authentic item from your favorite musician? A guitar pick caught in concert, a shirt, scarf, autograph, or even an instrument itself are all commonplace among collectors in the music world. However what about personal, and every day items you wouldn’t necessarily associate with your favorite act. Believe it or not, some of the highest closing auctions for musicians belong to some of the most unique items that may seem like nothing more than common trash to some. Well, one mans trash is another’s treasure they say, and with that in mind here are just a few of the most bizarre items that sold for ridiculous amounts of money at auction.

Justin Timberlake’s French Toast

If you had to re-read that we don’t blame you! Yes, this is correct. All the way back in the year 2000, Justin had just finished a morning interview on New York based radio station Z-100 where he was served a French toast breakfast. According to Ew.com, the morning show host then listed the remaining slices on eBay where they sold at auction for a whopping $1,025. The winner was a 19 year old student who claims she would “probably freeze-dry it, then seal it…then put it on my dresser”. We hate to burst her bubble, but I got French toasts this morning at Denny’s for $7.

Jerry Lee Lewis’s Ointment

Typically people don’t want the possession of their own ointment to be public knowledge, let alone someone else’s! But, what if that some else is “the killer” himself? The auction containing a tube of nasal ointment and two empty prescription pill bottles belonging to the wild child himself ended at $384. A substantial amount of money for something that I’m sure we could categorize as medical waste of you ask me. Even more intreating, the items were put up for auction by Lewis’s Ex-wife.

William Shatner’s Kidney Stone

The spoken word artist is no stranger to the occasional online auction, His Star Trek costumes reaching over $100,000 at times. However, in 2006 Shatner himself took to Julien’s Auctions to list his “sizable” kidney stone in an effort to raise money for Habitat for Humanity. Offering a substantial $25,000, the auction was won by GoldenPalace.com, an online casino. Additionally, the casino initially offered $15,000 which Shatner turned down! Clearly William knows exactly what “a piece of him” is worth!

Britney Spears’s Pregnancy Test

There’s obsessive and then there’s down right creepy. While none of these items have been particularly “normal” to want in your collection, we can’t help but think this the next level. Fortunately for our sanity, the piss stick was taken by GoldenPalace.com in 2005 to add to their ever-growing collection of “oddities”. That being said the online casino rolled out an impressive $5,001 for charity on this one. Surprisingly snagging the item a lot cheaper than a piece of Britney’s used gum that went for $14,000 and didn’t even include a COA.

Elvis’s Backgammon Board

Next time you are convinced nobody plays Backgammon, just remember The King himself was an avid player who even took his travel board with him. That same travel board would find its way to auction in 2016 closing at $1,024. A few rounds of high stakes backgammon and the buyer will have his money back in no time!

Six Strands of Kurt Cobain’s Hair

Capping off our list with the most recent addition to the auction block. Over the weekend of May 15th 2021, Six strands of Kurt Cobain’s hair sold for $14,145. Notably, the hair in question was accompanied by an official COA as well as a photograph of the seller with the late Nirvana frontman during the haircut. Now don’t get me wrong, I love Nirvana as much as the next guy, but I’m not going balls to the walls to showcase 6 strands of hair. In that vein, if you’ve got the money I’ve got a haircut coming up soon!

Casting Johnny Cage

The 2021, R rated, Mortal Kombat adaptation hit the big screen as well as HBO Max on April 23, reviving mixed but majority positive reviews. The movie is targeted at long time fans of the video game franchise and dives into the lore behind the in game characters and events. Grossing a whopping $9 Million opening night and topping the box office. With the film being such a financial success, it’s only a matter of time before we are presented with a sequel. One character from the original beat ‘em up not feature in this new adaptation expected to make his debut in the sequel is Johnny Cage. Cage is an arrogant, and egotistical character from the Mortal Kombat franchise complete with leather jacket and douchebag sunglasses to boot. The question now is who will play this much beloved asshole in the film adaptation?

The Miz

For those unaware, who have more than likely been living under a rock for the last two decades, Mike “The Miz” Mizanin is a professional wrestler and two time Grand Slam Champion under the WWE banner. The Miz is also no stranger to the big screen, getting his start on MTV’s 10th season of The Real World before transitioning into his professional wrestling career where he has also found himself as the leading man of The Marine franchise, along with other films such as Christmas Bounty and Fighting with my Family. Following the release of Mortal Kombat The Miz took to Twitter, noticing the lack of one Johnny Cage, offering his likeness for the role.

Photo from The Miz on Twitter

Apart from his obvious acting and fighting chops, Miz bares a striking resemblance to Cage that is undeniable! Having been the perfect fit for the arrogant, egotistical, asshole fans love to hate for the better part of almost two decades now, Miz is seemingly the perfect for the role,Not to mention his apparent affection for the series, and fans seem to be rallying around this casting choice as well. Boss Logic, noted for making actor edits and adaptations for fantasy roles, even took to Twitter to post a non-edited picture of Miz claiming no edit was needed, “The guy is literally him”.

Ryan Reynolds

The Miz is not the only person fans are creating buzz around however. The man responsible for reviving “The Merc with a Mouth” has been in heavy consideration amongst the Mortal Kombat fan base as well. Reynolds has proven he has the ability to play a natural, lovable jackass who is simultaneously a badass time and time again. Reynolds, never one to be left out of the loop on Twitter, took to the app amidst the speculation playing into the hype by posting a photo of himself as Cage to promote his partnership with phone provider, Mint.

While an announcement for the casting of Johnny Cage is nothing we should expect in the near future, we have to believe once casting begins for the inevitable sequel of Mortal Kombat, Miz and Reynolds have to be top contenders to fill the much anticipated role.

WWE Releases April 15, 2021 In Depth

Yes, exactly one year to the date after WWE’s mass talent purge due to COVID-19 it would seem they’re at it again. With seemingly no reason other than “budget cuts” The World Wrestling Entertainment has begun cutting a large and shocking mix of superstars which began on the evening of April 15th 2021 around 2pm eastern standard time. The following is the current list of all known releases at this time, check back for updates as the story progresses.

Billie Kay

The initial release reported by dirt sheets and WWE.com alike was for former Smackdown superstar Billie Kay. This release comes as a shock as Billie is fresh off a push that lead her to Wrestlemania in a losing effort as part of the Women’s Tag Team gauntlet match. With buzz already swarming around her abrupt firing, it seems it will not be long before we see Billie back inside a squared circle, the question now is where.

Twitter

Mickie James

Along side the aforementioned Billie Kay, WWE veteran and former Women’s champion, Mickie James was released from her WWE contract. Mickie had been very vocal about her opinions on “aging” women’s wrestles spot in the business as a whole in recent months but still thanked WWE Chairman Vince McMahon upon the news of her release for her time with the company and fond memories over the years. (Below)

Twitter

Tucker

One half of the former tag team “Heavy Machinery” alongside Otis, Tucker split from his long time partner in late 2020 following the Money In The Bank Pay-Per-View. Since then Tucker has largely been off TV, competing in the occasional multi-man match or appearing in backstage segments. It seems as though we’ll never get to see what Tucker’s singles run would’ve looked like in WWE. Interestingly enough, this release may be exactly what Tucker needed to get his singles career off the ground as following the break of his release, Tucker tweeter out this in response…

Twitter

Wesley Blake

Former member of NXT tag team “Blake and Murphy” as well as “The Forgotten Sons” Wesley Blake never got his fair shake at a main roster push. Seemingly always looked over in favor of his partners by WWE creative. Could we see the reunion of Forgotten Sons’s Steve Cutler with Blake relatively soon on the independent scene?

Chelsea Green

The release of popular NXT women’s main stay Chelsea Green came as a shock to many as the women’s wrestler appeared quite frequently on NXT TV and was highly regarded as one of the companies next big stars. Green’s partner former WWE superstar Matt Cardona, FKA Zack Ryder, took to Twitter upon the announcement to express his pure shock of the situation and to reassure Chelsea she is indeed a star! Ryder being one of last years “Black Wednesday” cuts and having appeared across a plethora of promotions since including Impact Wrestling, AEW, and a series of his own shows, should know a thing or two about success outside of the WWE umbrella.

Twitter

Kalisto

The man responsible for “good lucha things” is another interesting release on the part of WWE. Current member of the three man stable Lucha House Party, alongside Lince Dorado and Gran Metalik at the time of release, Kalisto is a former NXT Tag and United States champion in his own right. While not a regular feature on WWE TV, The Lucha House Party were one of few teams making up the current tag division. With the release of Kalisto, we only hope that his partners aren’t soon to follow suit.

Peyton Royce

The tag division once again in shambles as another team is out of the WWE picture. Peyton Royce, former member of the IIconics alongside Billie Kay, has also been released from her WWE contract. Peyton as well has her family have been very vocal over the past months starting their displeasure with the state of WWE’s women’s division and the idea that creative would rather have the same women become champion over and over again rather than affording opportunities to new talent. Could we possible see an IIconic reunion in a more “Elite” promotion int the near future?

Bo Dallas

Real life brother of Bray Wyatt and son of WWE legend I.R.S. Bo curiously survived last years cuts while his running partner Curtis Axel did not. This lead many to believe there were big plans in the world for Bo in relation to Bray’s new “Fiend” gimmick. While Bo has been missing from WWE programming since the 2019 Crown Jewel event, backstage sources report he may be in the process of transitioning out of wrestling and rather starting his own Real-estate agency. Whatever his plans are for life outside of the WWE, we genuinely do wish Dallas the best in future endeavors.

Twitter

Samoa Joe

Definitely the most shocking of the bunch released was wrestling veteran Samoa Joe. Joe is widely credited as one of the best wrestlers of his generation and has held the major title in almost every company he’s been a part of, ironically enough, excluding WWE. While Joe has been on the sideline with an injury for most of this past year, he has still remained a staple of weekly WWE programming serving as a play by play commentator for Monday Night Raw. Even more shocking, Joe’s last appearance with the company would be his role as a main commentator throughout both nights of Wrestlemania. With such a prime role and being such a hot acquisition, many are question the decision to release Joe. One thing remains certain, wherever he goes, Samoa Joe is sure to make an impact on their world title picture with fans already clamoring on Twitter for AEW and other wrestling promotions to sign the now free agent!

Twitter

These have been the releases from WWE on April, 15th 2021 thus far. Be sure to check back for updates as this story progresses. Let us know what you think of this batch of releases below or join in on the conversation as it continues on Twitter, where many superstars and companies alike remain very vocal as seen below!

UPDATED

Mojo Rawley

Mojo Rawley is the most recent member of the WWE roster released. Mojo was released on April 15th, 2021 around 7pm Eastern Standard Time.

Everything You Need To Know About The WWE Network on Peacock

What you need to be aware of before switching to Peacock for WWE

Just a week removed from the WWE’s departure to the Peacock streaming service began and we’ve already seen some shocking and frightening things. Before you go and activate your Peacock service, make sure you know exactly what you’re getting yourself into.

WWE Network is Still Operational

Photo: WWE.com

For the time being, the WWE Network is still fully functional for subscribers. While the transition to Peacock has begun, The Network won’t officially be offline until after Summer Slam. While it is still unknown if the “biggest event of the summer” will be streaming in bother services, more likely than not Summer Slam will be the first Peacock exclusive PPV. However, The Network technically isn’t “shutting down” at all! Subscribers outside the US will continue to get the WWE Network as the Peacock agreement is only for The State, meaning while it’s not ideal, with use of a VPN you could still enjoy your regularly scheduled programming!

User Limitations

WSRR

Like we previously addressed, WWE’s full library isn’t set to be added to Peacock until after this year’s Summer Slam, however fans are skeptical whether or not the “Full” library will ever be readily available. Peacock’s social media team had been very unhelpful regarding these concerns addressing the Summer Slam plans but nothing further, not providing any detail on specific shows, or time frames. As it sits now, Peacock only has a limited amount of Wrestling for all the hype surrounding it. While Raw, Smackdown, and NXT can all be found, they are accompanied by a handful of seemingly randomly selected WWE PPVs and D-List originals. Above all else Peacock also lacks a user friendly interface. Providing no “Start over” option or even an option to pause shows, Peacock has come under fire from the public for their inability to fully enjoy events on their own schedule.

Censorship

The most recent news regarding the streaming service and seemingly the most upsetting is Peacock’s mission to censor all WWE content, past or present! Initially removing the infamous Roddy Piper v. Bad News Brown Wrestlemania VI for Pipers use of “half blackface” , the next victim would be Owner and real life chairman of the company Vince McMahon’s controversial use of a certain satirical racial slur from Survivor Series ‘05. While we’re not condoning either instance, the blatant removal of this content seems rather uncalled for. With many fans believing Peacock should’ve opted for the “Muppets approach” including an advisory label in the description rather than cutting the footage. According to new reports, Peacock will be sorting through ALL of the Network footage to censor content that could be deemed “offensive”, leaving many long time fans weary of how the beloved “Attitude Era” will be represented on this new platform. While we may not agree with the actions of the past, we more so do not condone the attempt to erase or cover up history.

With seemingly more backlash than excitement, the overall consensus from wrestling fans seems to be an overwhelming “no” when it comes to the Peacock switch. Will you be making the change? Let me know what you think of the new service below and don’t forget to check out more Wrestling articles right here!

Another Multiplayer Fallout?

How Fallout 76 could’ve been approached differently and keeping future multiplayer Fallouts story oriented.

Fallout 76 brought a multiplayer experience into the Fallout series, one that was long asked for, but poorly executed. That said, is there a chance to save the long awaited multiplayer aspect without muddying the story driven game? A concept that up tp just a few years ago was nothing more than hopeful speculation, is there a way to take your typical single player, story driven Fallout and play with a friend. In order to understand how to approach this, we must first look back at how the multiplayer Fallout we were given was presented.

What Fallout 76 Did Right

Photo: Pastemagazine.com

Easy is it to jump aboard the band wagon and deem Fallout 76 a bad game. While not exactly what you’d look for in or expect from your typical post-apocalyptic adventure, and while rushed, Fallout 76 like it or not does have some redeeming qualities. The first and foremost thing 76 has going for it is server size. Todd Howard made it extremely apparent during the E3 reveal of the game this is not a party, its the apocalypse. By keeping server sizes limited to “Dozens” of players rather than hundreds, Bethesda made a very smart and more lore friendly online experience for players. Apart from the small servers, 76 also capitalized on Fallout 4’s building engine. Now don’t get me wrong, I’m entirely of the opinion that less is definitely more when it comes to settlement building, However, in the age of current day Bethesda titles the settlement building g suite is something that just isn’t going away. While Fallout 76 may have gone a bit over kill on it, they adapted it well for the game we were given.

What Fallout 76 Did Wrong

Photo: pngaaa.com

Now for the fun part. While fans had been split for over a decade in wether or not their favorite title should adapt a multiplayer aspect, very few expected this. Bethesda Studios took an interesting and bold rout using the MMORPG style similar to a World Of Warcraft game, and in the end, it didn’t exactly pay off like they would’ve expected. The open world aspect is 100% in line with what we’re used to In the series, however the distinct lack of NPCs leaves a lot to be desired in therms of the main, as well as side, quest lines. Quests seem empty and unimportant, doing something simply because a voice on a hollowtape said to then doing that same exact thing every mission gets tired very quickly. Honestly, the lack of interesting quests and dialog is enough to kill the game dead in its tracks right there, and while there are a ton of other issues present, I could be here all day listening them. For your sanity as well as mine, here’s the quick and easy breakdown of all the issues I’m sure you’ve already figured out for yourself!

Settlement building seems like a chore, when it works that is. Constantly having to hope and pray your house will be able to be placed every time you enter a server is not something I should have to worry about. “Companions” are just side quest beacons that rarely add any kind of interesting aspect to the gameplay, looking at you Beckett. The replay-ability aspect is simply not there, interesting thought out side quests have been replaced with timed events and daily challenges that are just more of the same. Of course we can’t forget constantly having to deal with that one guy in each server who somehow was able to sit though countless hours of 76 and reach an ungodly level just to try and start problems with other players.

How Multiplayer Could’ve Been Approached

Photo: Fallout Wiki

Asl any life long Fallout follower how they would’ve pitched a multiplayer Fallout prior to the release of 76 and I guarantee 9/10 times someone will bring up what I like to call “the companion option”. The companion option essentially boils down to the second player would take over the role of whoever the main player’s NPC companion is at the time. Not very complicated, and quite reminiscent of the PS2 days of co-op multiplayer! However the downside to this will always be the second players limitations. Having to deal with a preset character that is ultimately the first players decision. No personalization or custom stats to work off of, just dropped into a role and attached at the hip to the host. Now, my proposal for a work around? Use the same idea that 76 had. Now hear me out, remember how we talked about keeping the server size small, make it smaller. Same open world concept, build a single player game like the days of FO3 or NV, then add in a second private slot. Same single player aspect we’ve grown to love but with two main characters, that can interact, team up, or duke it out. No strangers If not wanted and full ability to keep it single player. If Fallout 76 has shown us anything, anything is possible when it comes to the Fallout series. Will we see another multiplayer Fallout, most likely down the road. The only deciding factor of how it will play out following the backlash from Fallout 76 will be what the community is clamoring for.

Let me know what you thought of Fallout 76, and how you would build an ideal multiplayer fallout below! Don’t forget to check out more fallout blogs right here and keep up to date on everting happening at StylesRebelRadio.com

KISS and “Makeup”

KISS founders Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley don’t see eye to eye on the current state of Rock Music.

KISS bassist Gene Simmons has found himself in the headlines numerous times in the past weeks with his controversial comments regarding the current state of rock music. What stared out as an isolated claim regarding the lack of “legendary” artists in the current era eventually caught the attention of Alice Cooper as well as fellow KISS member Paul Stanley.

“Rock is Dead”

Gene Simmons claims of the end of the rock genre came up during an interview with Gulf News, when asked about the current state of Rock an’ Roll and thoughts about those who claim rock has died, Simmons had this to say, “Rock is dead. And that’s because new bands haven’t taken the time to create glamour, excitement and epic stuff. I mean, Foo Fighters is a terrific band, but that’s a 20-year-old band. So you can go back to 1958 until 1988. That’s 30 years. During that time, we had Elvis, The Beatles, Jimi Hendrix, Rolling Stones, on and on.” While Simmons is doubtful any current era bands or artist will be considered “Legendary” within the next 30 years, some of his fellow musicians don’t feel this is the case at all.

Cooper Calls Bull!

Upon hearing Simmons’ claims, Alice Cooper told NME, “I would like him to do my taxes, He’s a business man, and business-wise, it’s valid, but I guarantee you right now that in London somewhere, in garages, they’re learning Aerosmith and Guns ‘N’ Roses, There’s a bunch of 18-year-kids in there with guitars and drums and they’re learning hard rock. It’s the same with the United States: there’s all these young bands that want to resurge that whole area of hard rock.” Discussing the state of rock music at large, he said the genre is “where it should be right now”.

Cooper goes on to explain the genre is alive and well existing, not in The Grammys or The Mainstream but rather on “the outside looking in” as it should be. The full NME interview can be seen below:

https://youtu.be/-NBfguTvDx4

Stanley Stands In

The comments not only resonated with rock icon Alice Cooper but also fellow KISS band mate Paul Stanley! Stanley’s stance sides with Alice Cooper defending the genre and claiming, “I think that life, rock, whatever it is, is never a constant,” he says. “Let’s say, for example, if you take somebody’s pulse and it’s weak, it doesn’t mean they’re dead. It means that the pulse is weak. And it doesn’t mean it won’t come back stronger. I don’t think that music can ever be dead. I don’t think that bands can be dead, rock can be dead. It just takes somebody to reignite it to the level that it has been at some time in the past.” In an interview with Canada Talks on Sirius XM, according to AltPress.

Bitter Bias?

While both KISS leads appear to be on opposite sides of the spectrum when it comes to the current state of the rock industry, that doesn’t appear to have driven a wedge between the two… yet. While the band is still scheduled to tour, they have pushed back any future dates until after pandemic restrictions have been lifted. Stanley still plans to take his solo project on the road playing smaller clubs and venues in the meantime.

BREAKING: Former Band Mates “Not on Speaking Terms”

All is Not Well Between Former Lithium Band Mates!

As of the night of Wednesday March 3rd 2021, Lithium guitarist Evan Sinarski and founding member Brayden D. do not appear to be on speaking terms!

While details about the issue have yet to come out, regarding the questions as to what lead to the reported falling out, Current guitarist, Evan Sinarski, appears to have cut all contact with the founding member.

For those not aware, Local “Legendary” “Rock” band, Lithium formed in the summer of 2015 as a Nirvana tribute. The brainchild of Style (Jordan Toler) accompanied by guitarist Brayden D., saw the addition of current guitarist Evan Sinarski merely a month and a half after the bands inception. While Brayden departed from the group in late 2015, citing “creative differences” on the part of Style, Evan and Style remained turning out music still to this day. The duo accompanied by a slew of studio/session drummers and bassists, have made server almost appearances including CHS’s town hall rock off, and live on NCU Radio.

The trio has and two brief reunions, both resulting from Evan Sinarski’s departure and leave from The United States Air Force. While there seemed to be no bad blood between the three men, Evan Sinarski, when asked about what had transpired had this to say…

“I just blocked Brayden on every social media platform lol.”

While no official public statement has been issued by either the official Lithium social media pages or Sinarski’s, the claim seems to be factual as Sinarski’s social media platforms seem to lack a familiar name in their following list.

My First (And Worst) Fallout Experience

My First Fallout Experience Was The Absolute Worst Time I’ve Ever Had Playing…

I’ve been a die hard fan of the Fallout franchise for many, many years now. By far it’s my favorite game series and one I’ve played over again easily a dozen times each. Typically when someone finds their favorite game it’s a fantastic and exciting experience, for me, not so much. I was unfortunate enough to experience the absolute worst the wasteland had to offer on my very first run through, and I’m talking RIGHT AWAY. An experience I’ve never seen anything come close to in my near 100 following play throughs of the series, you’d think I had a real life Luck of zero!

A few things to keep in mind before I get into it:

• The copy of Fallout 3 I purchased came with all the DLC on a second disc .

• I used to keep my TV relatively dark to get away with playing it last midnight on school nights.

Alright, so the year is 2010. I was the absolute last of my friends to play Fallout 3. I decided to pick it up from my local Game Stop after hearing my cousin talk it up for quite some time. Opting for the slightly more expensive Game Of The Year edition, I got home and began installing the DLC from the second disc. Later in the evening once everything was installed I began my journey into the Fallout universe.

Upon starting the game everything ran like expected, Tunnel Snakes, GOAT tests, Overseer , all that good stuff. Then, came time to exit the vault. Stepping into the bright blinding light of the wasteland with nothing but my vault security armor and a baseball bat, I was beyond excited to explore the Capitol Wastes. That lasted all about 15 seconds however. Taking roughly 10 steps from the door, I began to walk toward a tall black figure that stood just off to the right of the vault entrance. Immediately without haste I was greeted with a barge of fire flying towards me. That’s right, the very first enemy I encountered in Fallout was none other than an Enclave Hellfire Trooper. So here I am, level 1, never played before, wood baseball bat, and being repeatedly spawned in front of and killed by a Hellfire Trooper with a heavy incinerator. Fortunately after a dozen deaths and a few tears, I realized I had saved before I left the vault while figuring out the controls.

After loading a new save file and exiting the vault for a second time, I was able to leave in peace! Arriving in megaton I began the main quest of finding my dad. However once again my game wasn’t having it. After informing Lucas Simms about Mister Burke’s offer to blow up the town, I met the two at the saloon, as you do. Only before Burke shot Simms, Simms’ body vanished! Burke shot thin air and Lucas was nowhere to be found for the rest of the game…. alright… guess he’s dead then. Moving on. Exiting the building and coming to realize the day cycle exists, I began wandering aimlessly around Megaton unable to see a damn thing in the dark.

The run from hell wasn’t over there however, opting to help out Moira after the whole Mister Burke incident, I began to make my way down to Super Duper Mart. Now, while I was warned about the vast amount of Raiders that can be found there, what I was not warned about was a damn Deathclaw. Upon arriving to the parking lot I was greeted with the body of a wastelands being thrown about as the giant mutated monstrosity charged toward me. After several deaths, my level 2 ass had just about had enough. Finally having the sense to just turn around and run the opposite direction upon spawning, I opted to run down the map and AROUND Super Duper Mart, just far enough to not be noticed by the Deathclaw.

My plan was fool proof, until I began to get a little too close to the parking lot once again. Finding myself in [Caution] I slowly began to back away toward the bridge just south of the store before turning and running away in full sprint… well, Fallout 3’s equivalent to a “full sprint”. Sprinting right into a Mirelurk King. Keep in mind, I didn’t even know better than to try and engage it! So here I am running away from the Mirelurk King back TOWARDS the Deathclaw just praying one of them would target the other. Fortunately for me the Deathclaw wasn’t having it and decided to attack the king, providing me just enough time to get the fuck outta dodge.

After this, I promptly turned off my Xbox wondering if I had just wasted $40. It would take me about a month or two before I finally gave it a second chance with a new profile and a normal ass play through. Here I am 10+ years later still playing Fallout 3 and every other Fallout title 100 times over, yet I’ve never once experienced anything that has even come close to that first one.

I’d love to hear about your first and/or worst Fallout experience! Let me know if you’ve ever experienced anything like what I went through my first time around and be sure to check out more Fallout right here!
