Warning: The Village People–yes, them–may be more METAL than you.

Back in the days of disco, there were few bands more loathed than The Village People. Yet against long odds, the group is still together and still performing live. And the attitude towards them has changed.

Last week at Riot Fest in Chicago, their performances of “Macho Man” and “YMCA” inspired part of the crowd to form a most pit. A pretty intense wall-of-death one, too, along with a circle pit.

Word is the pits were “really positive,” too. (Via Metalsucks)
