FRENDZ, POETS, SHADOW SOLDIERS, BROTHERS & SISTERS OF THE CAUSE,

WE DESIRE YOUR HELP.

SO MANY OF YOU HAVE SENT IN REQUEST AFTER REQUEST TO MTV2 TO HAVE OUR VIDEO
"BLOOD PIGS" ADDED TO THEIR ROTATION. UNFORTUNATELY, "THEY" HAVE IGNORED
YOUR PASSIONATE REQUESTS AS WE HAVE JUST LEARNED THAT "THEY" HAVE DEEMED OUR
VIDEO TOO AGGRESSIVE FOR AIRING AS "THEY" HAVE DECIDED TO FOCUS "THEIR"
brilliance ON THE MORE "emo" SIDE OF THE MUSIC WORLD.

WE FIND THIS UNACCEPTABLE.

MTV IS NOTHING WITHOUT ITS VIEWERS. IT IS NOTHING WITHOUT U. WHY SHOULD
"THEY" BE ALLOWED TO IGNORE A CERTAIN POPULATION OF VIEWERS JUST BECAUSE
"THEY" ARE SUFFERING FROM CEREBRAL & CREATIVE REGRESSION?

WE RESPECTFULLY REQUEST THAT EVERY SHADOW SOLDIER, EVERY FREND, EVERY
THINKER, EVERY BELIEVER -- BOMBARD MTV2 WITH EMAILS, THEIR MESSAGE BOARDS, &
SEND IN PHONE REQUESTS TO HAVE "BLOOD PIGS" ADDED.

AS A COLLECTIVE, WE HAVE ACCOMPLISHED SO MUCH -- TOGETHER, WE CAN DO THIS.
SPREAD THE WURD, ENLIST YOUR FRENDZ, INFECT AS MANY AS U CAN.

LET MTV2 KNOW HOW POWERFUL WE TRULY ARE.

YOURS IN STRUGGLE,
OTEP . ROB . MOKE . eViL J
