After Trapt started getting into it with metalcore bands, Born Of Osiris drummer Cameron Losch offered his own interpretation of Trapt's one hit, "Headstrong," that can be best described as "soft," as in the complete opposite of a song that sounds "hard."

This is funny, because if you were following the Sumerian drama at all, Trapt made a bunch of much more obvious threats to the label and artists than what Ice T was saying.

So there is your Trapt fun for the day.
