Get an HTML Coding Lesson from Satan, Through Death Metal

Computers, man. Sometimes they’re just evil. Like, why are my tabs closing at random today? Why does that one browser I won’t call out by name (for legal reasons) keep freezing? What’s with Shockwave plugins that don’t respond?

If you answered “Satan,” the YouTube channel RiffShop, which we found via Laughing Squid, might agree. Their version of Satan (David Wu) knows his technology–so well, in fact, that he wants to teach you basic html, by screaming his instruction over a thundering guitar riff, because that’s how the devil rolls.

You may have suspected, but now you know: html actually stands for “hate tyranny malice loathing.” But even if you don’t believe that, you can take away some knowledge from lyrics like, “They’re opening and closing tags! They’ll put your elements in body bags!” It’s all in the service of creating a cute puppy website called “Pupper 666” with the tagline “Life is ruff.”

I knew pet picture websites were evil!

RiffShop are fond of explaining things through death metal, like “How to Tie a Tie” and, uh, “Cereal.” It was only a matter of time before they summoned the Dark One in the process.

To compensate, I think they should teach us how to properly and respectfully attend church…through death metal, of course.

Does a killer riff make it easier to learn things? Is this how schools should implement calculus? At the very least, wouldn’t it liven up P.E. class if the coach’s screams were actually in the service of a rockin’ tune?
