If YouTube user comments are any way of rating the consumer reaction to a song, it is safe to say that this particular offering has definitely elicited a varying response from fans. Controversy, however is nothing former Velvet Underground singer Lou Reed is stranger too nor the metal titans are stranger to, nor is pushing musical boundaries in ways that are not always expected or anticipated.
