Chris Fronzak (Attila): Six Songs To Die With
Attila frontman / lightning rod Chris "Fronz" Fronzak chooses Six Songs To Die With.
We have neither the budget nor the imagination of BBC Radio, so we've borrowed from their Desert Island Discs program to bring you our own scaled down version, dubbed Six Songs To Die With. We ask a noteworthy musical guest to select the six songs they'd be stranded with on an obligatory desert island. Hypothetically, said guest will be dying on this island, so they've been advised to choose wisely. Selections appear in no particular order.
You might hate him. You might love him. Either way, you've probably heard of him. He is Chris Fronzak (aka Fronz or Fronzilla), frontman and co-founder of Atlanta, Georgia deathcore/metalcore outfit Attila. And while the band has proven successful in its own right (their latest album sold over 14,000 in its debut week), Fronzak has cultivated his own identity and now commands his own personal fanbase. His "Suck My Fuck"-titled Twitter account has nearly 100,000 followers, and his Stay Sick clothing line has been gaining steam. And if his haters could in fact banish him to a desert island, these are the Six Songs he'd have with him.
Tears For Fears
"Head over Heels"
Chris Fronzak: This song has always been my favorite song for as long as I can remember. No matter how many times this song gets played, it never gets old, thus making it the perfect song to die with. It's epic as fuck and makes me feel good inside. It would also be fun to sing along to as I rot on some tropical island.
"Slings & Arrows"
Chris Fronzak: War is Hell by the Warriors is still one of my favorite albums of all time. Whenever I hear this song, it instantly triggers memories of being 14 and packing into an old shitty car with 5 other friends and heading down I-85 to catch hardcore shows in downtown Atlanta. We would listen to the Warriors and just scream along and shake the car, haha. Those were times that helped influence who I am today and I'll never forget.
Chris Fronzak: I'm a huge Deftones fan, so picking one song was tough. I chose "Change" because I love the melody in the chorus and the vibes that the song gives me. Deftones music is the perfect mix of power and melody, and they will always be legendary in my eyes.
"Always Something There To Remind Me"
Chris Fronzak: I remember listening to this song the first time I flew on a plane alone. I was probably only 8 years old. It's another song with childhood memories attached to it. Plus, I just really love 80's music. It's good for any occasion, so it's the perfect song to keep for a lifetime!
Chris Fronzak: It was extremely hard to decide which Slipknot song to pick, but I decided to go with one of their newer singles- "Psychosocial." This is, in my opinion, the heaviest song in existence. In the event that I find some fermented coconut alcohol to drink, I'm gonna need a good drinking song. This one would be perfect, and I don't think I could ever get tired of this song.
Chris Fronzak: It's no secret that Attila's favorite album is Channel Orange by Frank Ocean. The entire album is perfect from front to back. It's very easy to listen to and it covers a range of different moods. I particularly like the song "Pyramids." At first listen, it appears as if the song is about a beautiful Egyptian goddess, but in reality it's about a stripper that works at a strip club called the "Pyramid." It's brilliant.

You have terrible taste and your band is gay. Nice hand tats, bro.
HAHA. Wow. Not only does his band suck shit, but his taste in music does, too. f*ck this gay.
i don't like Attila, but this list isn't too bad
dude I didn't know you had such a diverse taste in music like that. pretty cool man. good slipknot choice too! and I've been meaning to check out the Deftones for awhile now, and I was really digging the link, thanks Fronz! Stay Sick!
Okay you f*ckig jerks, just because you don't like HIS song choices doesn't mean you have to f*cking wish death upon him. I hope you burn in hell. Chris Fronzak is a great f*cking guy.
There is no such thing as a "horrible taste", everyone likes different shit and you guys just gonna have to go with that, peace.
Hataz gonna hate bet all you douchebags cant even writr your own music nevertheless scream and shiz xD oh well yall arent true metal fans no matter wtf kinda metal it is metal is metal and REAL metal heads respect one another B) DEUCES \m/ shall be seein you in san antonio sat fronz >:D
You stupid f*cks don't know shit about music, just because its not your favorite f*cking death metal band up there doesn't mean this music is shit, nor is the band. stupid ass pussies need to recognize other types of music instead of fapping your smeat in your grandmas bastufft listening to cannibal corpse or whatever the f*ck it is you listen to. probably one direction.
Wow look at all the trolls on here. ATTILA IS f*ckING RAW. If you don't f*cking like them, you should probably go waste your breathe talking about falling out of your mommy's c*nt instead you worthless hating scumbag suckers. ATOMIK
f*ck the haters, Attila is amazing. I know I'm personally going to smoke a fat blunt with Fronzilla at reckless fest ;)
Fronz is better than you guys. Shut the f*ck up. Show some respect! As fronz would say, slut what the f*ck?
This a really good list so f*ck all you sceney weeny suicide silence gays.
f*cking trash music taste. Slipknot? The high school gothic f*cks must really love that.
If you take my lyrics seriously you're a f*cking moron." Fronz
All those people are just mad cause he gets more snatch in a week than they do in a year.
Am I the only one not hating on his music tastes? this shit is awesome!
Anyone who says that he has bad taste in music just sounds insecure. Keep hating behind your computer screens, I know it helps you feel better. :)
The only good band on that list is The Warriors. Also Attila is f*cking horrendous, so who cares.
I love Attila and this list is great!!! My only problem.... Psychosocial being one of the heaviest songs ever made??? uhh... no sir.
The only good things in this list is Deftones and slipknot.
His band is garbage and for the most part his taste in music sucks ... All u tweens on here cupping this dudes nuts make me laugh.... I guarantee this garbage ass band wont even be relevant in a year or two... Why dont u youngins listen to better quality music... Its really sad.... Have heart or verse or trapped under ice or something... The kids these days are super gay
i feel like the people saying they like attila are just trolling. right? they have to be...
this guy is a bozo.. what a pssy with a hilariously awful list. fight me tweens
go suck on some d*ck and shut ur trap! hater ass bitches! fronz is the new king! he will find ur f*cking bitch and f*ck her right in front of you
Furiously sucked his d*ck^^.... And prob is 18 yrs old and has no real grasp of good music... Bits its ok little guy go back to study hall
lol at him referencing ''downtown atlanta'' hardcore shows. I remember him back then he looked like a caveman with stretched ears and we used to make fun of him everytime he showed up with his loser friends. Glad he found his calling of being a trendy gay and dropped out of hardcore.
aguante attila locoo , ustedes son todos unos putos
Everyone on here talking shit about how atilla and their fans have "bad" taste in music and are "tweens"......guess what chodes? Your opinions matter and are really changing things.....your doin somthin that matters, so keep it up! O ya and remember, SUCK MY f*ck!! Haha see you in SLC fronzilla!!
Everyone who says Fronz and Attila suck makes me laugh. I'm OLDER then they all are, fr the record. That being said, Fronz is a nice, down to earth dude and he made it big by doing what he loves. Ill bet none of you little kids sitting at home will ever make a life like that for yourself. Until you do, stop hating the man for doing what he loves to do. Now go back and continue touching yourselves.
Oh you are totally right dude my bad. He got his foot in the door with MTV and then jumped on a bandwagon. Really made his dreams come true, really making a difference. He writes smut that a six year old could write. f*ck you, all of these bands will be washed up very soon. Dudes like him and all the bands like his are cancer on music. I can't wait till this dies out. Im A HaTeR SrY gUyZ. f*ck this braindead generation.
Anyone who don't like ATTILA CAN SUCK MY D*CK!!!!!!!! There music is real music f*ckIN Awesome if you have ears listen up. that is all.
Where is his receding hairline? That photo does not do my distaste for this band justice.
For those "he's doing what he loves" crusaders. Stop. Hitler loved what he was doing, but does that justify his actions? Swallow that.
For those of you arguing about the list this list is made up of the best musicians of the genre this is a perfect list. Regardless of whether you like to music or not. Second of all Attila had a put out 4 albums before they were even noticed by the scene. Rage is literally one was creatively written heavy albums of all time you cannot argue the musicianship regardless what you think about the new music. Period.
Personally, I f*cking love ATTILA. If you don't I really don't care, like whatever you want but this is the stupidest f*cking online argument I've seen in like, 3 weeks
Hahaha it's funny reading the comments. I like Attila. but thier not the only band I listen to. Another thing too Attila isn't a band to take seriously. They even said it themselfs, thats why he doesnt give a f*ck about what people say. he even said he should not be prasied for his actions. So all those fanboys that got pissy cause they said Attila sucks. Clam your t-ts. AND keep this in mind there at least better then "Blood on the Dance Floor, and Never Shout Never."
Holy lol at all you dck riders jocking Attila on here. This guy is a huge fggt who only gained notoriety from his stupid twitter posts and fight with Westbork Baptist. Oh and just so I don't leave anything out, his band sucks. f*ck you all.
Hahahaha if you say this is gay while Tears For Fears is one of his choices, you seriously need to reconsider your taste in music and your definition of gay, c*nts.
"I hate Attila and Fronz, so I am gonna find a post about them and talk shit. Because I have nothing better to do in my life other than talk shit and masturbate to my mom" - The "guys" talking shit
The people talking shit are just jealous, because they have no musical talent at all.. They may think they do but really, if they were to make a band they'd most likely be shot down and pissed on... They can't move on in life, or grow up.
Everybody is such a dck, these songs are fine.
Love you Fronz. Ignore the hate. You're a really cool dude with a different taste in music and kick-ass band.
YO, STRAIT UP, ATTILA IS AWESOME AND FRONZ IS THE MAN. ALL THE HATERS CAN SUCK A D. IVE BEEN FOLLOWING THESE DUDES BACK IN MYSPACE DAYS WHEN THEY WERE KIDS AND TO SEE THEM STILL DOING IT AND STILL KILLING IT MAKES ME STOKED FOR THEM. GOOD JOB BOYZ, IMMA DO A STRIKEOUT.
I don't understand why anyone would bother to read about what Fronz' favorite songs were if you don't even like or respect the band. Get the f*ck out if you're just gonna hate on him.
the amount of gays on this website that are actually trying to give some merit to this dude and his shitty band is staggering. Lambgoat is over. Heavy music is over. might as well get some neck/face/hand tatts and start my five year plan for a job at burger king when my shitty band is no longer relevant to the sophomoric adolescent masses
God I hope that is one single person making every anonymous reply. There is no way people actually think like that.
Hm. Im going to wish death on you to show that wishing death upon someone is wrong. Good job kid
Holyshit you kids are such sheep. Anyone that idolizes this taco need to get their heads checked. Deftones f*cking rule. Why would you make such talentless, uninspiring garbage if you have good taste in music? OH THATS RIGHT THATS WHAT SELLS NOW!!! Please just end this era of music please. f*cking grunge was better then this.
Seriously. When did the heavy music scene become a bunch of frat boys, rich kids, and wanna be rappers? Peeping the dude's twitter is a laugh. The guy actually thinks he matters outside of his shitty band and three year long fans.
"Seriously. When did the heavy music scene become a bunch of frat boys, rich kids, and wanna be rappers? Peeping the dude's twitter is a laugh. The guy actually thinks he matters outside of his shitty band and three year long fans." +1
wow, the lambgoaters are really fired up over this.
miss you chris wish to see you soon an ol friend good to see what youve done with the band hope things continue well love ya brotha stay true to the hardcore roots dont go mainstream buddy we all know that shit will f*ck you in the hole
this dude's music will never influence another competent musician. so, he has a lot in common with slipknot.
Dude is a total douche and his band is terrible but I enjoy all of those songs he posted except that slipknot joint and I had also never heard The Warriors and I will be pirating all of their albums today. All of you inter-nerds (see what I did there) wishing death on this tool are kinda queer IMO.
so explain to me why you would judge a guy on his music choice, and why, WHY would even bother reading the article if you hate attila in the first place. f*cking sheep following the herd baaaaaaaaah bahhhh
like him or hate him, this is actually the best "Six Songs To Die With" that i've seen so far
Well, if this article accomplished anything, it has showed the world how dumb Attila fans are.
Whoa... If these were my fans, I would just stop making music. I would rather be hated than have such ignorant little shits backing me. That said, people don't hate because they are jealous of him, some people genuinely think he is a mega-douche. I like some of Attila's stuff, even back when they burned their EP on blanks and hand drew artwork on the way to the shows in Pensacola. They have earned their fans and haters equally. Both groups could mature and take a few months to get a GED, though.
do not....do f*cking not link yourself in anyway to the deftones you f*cking f*ck
I don't normally add comments....but.......... can attila go away.....I have never heard more god awful music then there's....that being said for someone in a "metal" band to choose these songs to die for....is like me listening to my girlfriend telling me what hockey team to route for...and as a previous poster put it.....just die
f*ck off if you don't like Chris, just hit back and go look at an article that pertains to your interests...We don't give a f*ck what you think about our 'opinions', every single person has a different opinion.
fronz your f*cking awesome i love your music hopefulley i can meet you one day an write some songs an rap an f*ck alll them haters they can suck our dcks love you fronz p.s this jared kober f*ck with me
To all those who wish death upon Chris for his musical tastes, I'd like to say "Kill yourself, you miserable waste of flesh. You're a goddamn sack of shit, you should be ashamed of yourself for wishing death on someone because of the music they like or make. People like you are a detriment to a progressive society, so f*ck you. Die, c*nt."
close minded gays he is a beast & so is his band so f*ck off haters
Hataz gonna hate bet all you douchebags cant even writr your own music nevertheless scream and shiz xD oh well yall arent true metal fans no matter wtf kinda metal it is metal is metal and REAL metal heads respect one another B) DEUCES \m/ shall be seein you in san antonio sat fronz >:D and you are unable to spell the word "write" correctly,let alone use punctuation
Chris,stop coming to your own band's defense, it makes you look more pathetic than what you already are.
