Yasiel Puig inspires a grindcore band called “Puig Destroyer”

Jun 14, 2013, 2:45 PM EDT

Yasiel Puig

And the first song from them — “One Man, Five Tools” — can be heard over at Productive Outs.

I’d review the song in an objective, non-fan boyish way, but the last thing I want is to be accused of being a killjoy again, so allow me to say that it’s the greatest song in the history of popular music and the only way to enjoy it is to believe this is so.

    I have no idea what “grindcore” is. Is it like ska-core? Is it just like the Mighty Mighty Bosstones from back in the day? I’ll assume yes and click play with the volume all the way up…

      “Ska Core, the Devil and More”

      A fine fine album.

    for all that don’t know what grindcore is and what to post that they don’t know what grindcore is.

    Which, for the uninitiated, is a play on the name of the band Pig Destroyer, which makes this greatest thing in just about the history of ever.

      Thank you for beating me to the Pig Destroyer reference, inarguably one of the top 3 grindcore bands of all time.

      Beat me too. Here’s some songs.

    Daughters, Head Wound City, and The Number 12 Looks Like You are all good grindcore bands.

    So apparently you can just a genre of music and throw the word “grind” on the end of it and it’s a whole new style of music?

    “Dude did you check out that new jazzgrind album? Almost as good at the bluegrassgrind concert I just went to, but far better than that A cappela-grind garbage…”

    I like that people who don’t know the genre are commenting on a post about the genre.

    This is just another fad band anyway. Nothing to see here, move along.

    Thank you for your lack of killjoyism in this post. I appreciate it. :-)

    If Puig makes that his walk-up music that would be pretty awesome. The reaction on the crowds face would be priceless.

    I got through less than a full second of the song before stopping it.

    To each their own. I wish this new band great success and hope they get the opportunity to meet Yasiel Puig, but I also hope I never hear this song (or anything that sounds like it) again.

    If you manage to get through the whole song, there’s a clip of Vin Scully saying “Puig does it again!” with the Dodger Stadium crowd cheering at the end.

    To bad Starling Marte might not play in this series. Marte is a lot like Puig but with less power. His arm accuracy and power is really close to Puig’s.

    Wow, never thought I’d see a reference to grindcore on this blog.
