Deftones is one of the greatest alternative metal bands of all time, and their 2020 album, Ohms, is a testament to the angst and darkness that exists within alternative metal. With hits like “Balance,” “Urantia,” and “The Link Is Dead,” this is a must have for fans of alternative metal.

So…I started in the middle of my other story, if anyone remembers. I have every author's fear. Writer's block! So this is my other story, from the beginning. I will show more next time I do an author spotlight. This story is called. Zombie Apocalypse. (I did this because I don’t have any other good oneshots…)
1 day before the apocalypse “Are you kidding!? I lost!?” Kai yelped. “You taught me all your tricks.” Lloyd laughed and kissed his boyfriend on the cheek. The ninja were hanging out. Wu said they deserved a day off, so the ninja were having fun. Jay, Kai, and Lloyd were playing video games. Nya, Cole, and Zane were watching them and talking. Misako and Wu were chatting in the kitchen. “Alright, Chosen One. Let’s see if you can beat me!” Jay said. “Aw, I was hoping for a challenge.” Lloyd pouted. “Woo! Lloyd is on fire!” Cole said. “Hey, that’s my line!” Kai chuckled. Jay rolled his eyes and picked up a controller. Everyone cheered for Lloyd. “Aw, come on Nya.” Jay said. “Sorry, Jay-Bear. I love you! Hope you win.” Nya said. Lloyd giggled and Kai blushed. The two had started dating two weeks ago and Kai would still stare at Lloyd like he was the only person in the world. “Bring it, Greenie.” Jay said. “Cheering for you Clover.” Kai said. “Thanks Fire Ant.” Lloyd said. Cole gagged. Kai and Lloyd rolled their eyes and Jay started the game. Long story short, Lloyd won. “How!?” Jay cried. Lloyd giggled again. Then sirens blared. “Aw, man! One day! Just one day where we don’t have to fight.” Cole complained while everyone ran to the front of the Bounty. “Looks like the problem is right under us!” Nya said. “What!?” Everyone cried. “No time to dwell on that. Let’s go!” Cole said. “Ninja-go!” Everyone did spinjitzu and spun into their colored Gi’s, then leapt off the side, making their elemental dragons.
