To quote a lyric on this album: this is definitely not a joke. Canned mountain water brand Liquid Death has released its second album of 2020, created by a genuinely amazing cast of punk musicians, and featuring lyrics made up entirely of actual hate comments about Liquid Death from social media and online reviews. The first volume of Greatest Hates was death metal (made by members of Arsis, Malevolent Creation, Divine Empire, and Upon Infliction), and Greatest Hates, Vol. 2 was made by Brendan Kelly (The Lawrence Arms), Chris #2 (Anti-Flag), Dan Andriano (Alkaline Trio), Tim McIlrath (Rise Against), Joe Principe (Rise Against), Ashrita Kumar (Pinkshift), Jeremy Hunter (JER, We Are the Union, Skatune Network), Jen Razavi (The Bombpops), Josh Lewis (The Bombpops), and Paul Miner (ex-Death by Stereo), and it features such song titles as "Rather Murder Myself," "I Thought This Was Alcohol," "Your Product is Dumb," "Unnecessary and Unimpressive," and "Another Contribution to a Very Sick Culture," and such lyrics as "water for heavy metal hipsters," "canned water for dumbasses," and "what cokehead greenlit this idea?".

And the thing is: it's really good! The lyrical concept might be funny, but the songs legit rip, and if you're fans of these bands, you'll instantly recognize their styles and voices. Stream the full album and watch the commercial for the album below. You can also order a vinyl copy.
