LUBBOCK: THE MOST FRIENDLY HELLMOUTH IN ALL OF WEST TEXAS. This isn't an omen or sign of anything, and we mean that. It's just, like, Wednesday in Lubbock.
Why more music videos for 1990s death metal bands weren't shot in Lubbock, we'll never know. Seems like the perfect setting, really. If this appears in your town and you do not live in West Texas, you probably all begin eating each other and looting canned food off the shelf.
