Do You Wanna Start a War
Label: Century Media
Chris Jericho may be wrestling's Ayatollah of Rock 'n' Rolla, but in his musical moonlighting gig he comes off as really wholesome for a metal guy. That's especially apparent in shouty positive-thinking pep rallies like "Tonight" and the title track, although industrial-pulsed Stabbing Westward via nü-metal sulks "Lights Go Out" and "One Crazed Anarchist" have plenty of jock-rock in them too. There's also a song comparing some jerk who won't go away to a "Bad Tattoo," some horror-goth kitsch called "Scarecrow," and acknowledgment that Abba's "S.O.S." was always a desperate cry from the dark.
