Strapping Young Lad – “Love?” live & PV

Live Performances

At ‘The Sounds of The Underground Tour’ in 2005

The extreme metal band Strapping Young Lad performed their song “Love” at ‘The Sounds of The Underground Tour‘ in 2005.

The joke of Devin Townsend with ‘his friend’ make us laugh before their performance, but they suddenly throw us into their heavy, progressive and aggressive metal sound.

At ‘Download Festival’ in 2006

“Love?” is taken from 3rd studio album of SYL “Alien“(2005).

Lineup

  • Devin Townsend : Vocals, Lead guitar, Keyboard
  • Jed Simon : Guitar, Backing vocal
  • Byron Stroud : Bass, Backing vocal
  • Gene Hoglan : Drums

Lyrics

“There is no external way to tell when a woman is ready to receive”

MARCH!!!

LOVE…is a way of feeling
Oh, LOVE is a way of feeling less alone
So what’s all the fuss about?!?

“FUCK IT”
LOVE: the paradox of needing
OH LOVE,
MAKE WAY FOR BREEDING
(Give it to me)x2

I know what I stand for;
I STAND FOR ME!!!

I’ll wait for the night to come
So far, suicide at home
For I’m not the man you know
This love it’s about control

OH WHAT A FEELING!!!!!
OH WHAT A FEEDING!!!!!
Know the chosen ones, ARE HERE!
ALL HAIL!!!

I’ll wait for the night to come
So far, suicide at home
For I’m not the man you know…
This love,
IT’S ABOUT CONTROL(You Fucker!)

(ALL IN THE NAME OF LOVE)
(ALL IN THE NAME OF LOVE)
(ALL IN THE NAME OF LOVE)
(All in the name of Love…)
