Master of Pages

My buddy Jason Whittington wrote this fantastic set of lyrics to the tune of Metallica's "Master of Puppets". Check it out:


Master of Pages

In your darkest day, Child Controls array
Try to use SqlConnection
Children disappear, code-behind not clear
Too much Stylesheet distraction


Write me and you see
I am all you need
You provide the views
I am calling you


Your site is plastered
Obey your master
Your page loads faster
Obey your master


Master of pages is pulling your strings
Formatting output, displaying your themes
Without placeholders you can’t see a thing
Just call my name, 'cause I’ll hear you scream


Just call my name, 'cause I’ll hear you scream


Try to do your bit, Handle PreInit
Binding to a data table
You've been led astray, data won't display
Worker process grows unstable




Master, master, where’s the page that I’ve been after?
Master, master, now my server dies


Laughter, laughter, all I hear and see is laughter
Laughter, laughter, laughing at my cries


Now your viewstate's fat, didn't use the cache
Do you really need more reason?
You're lost in the maze, Come to righteous ways
.NET 2.0's in season


I will lead the way
I will make you pay
You will start anew
Now I rule you too


  1. CC: I can't believe I just saw something that nerdy. You probably like > Justice Metallica too don't you.

    Jason: I'm just as God made me sir.

  2. Careful, I hear Metallica's in a suing mood still....

  3. Good thing they're too dumb to read. ;)
