Grindcore fan that happened to be a goat passes away. Star of an unlikely web meme dies young due to leading a metal lifestyle.

One doesn't just "happen" to be a goat.

This is a clear case of nominative determinism.

This goat had a cooler life than I did. And I say that with respect. Yeah, it's sad she died, but she was old for a goat and got to rock.

But goats are awesome anyway.

Ten years is a good run for a goat. She's in Valhalla now.

There's a video on the facebook page!

It looks like it was the vocals that really held her attention.

Holy shit, that's great.

Next, I want a pig to defiantly run in the circle pit at a Pig Destroyer show.

The best part is the giant, genuine smiles on the people near her in the photos.

Cattle Decapitation shows are hell on the rest of the livestock.

I liked it when the singer petted the goat. I loved this goat. *sigh*

I thought this was going to be about that goat who liked to sing along to Usher. I guess there's more than one genre of goat music fan.

I have goats they actually are chaotic neutral.

That was awesome. He's rocking out and then pets the goat and goes out to screaming out his song. I also liked the little blink she gave at the end of the song. Like she was 'that all you got?!'

Well, you know what they say: Live fast, die young, and leave - mutton.

In my heart, Biquette died on Fer, NivĂ´se, 222 of the Jacobin calendar. There are many other metal days, but few more metal than Iron, Snowy, 666/3.

But, they say she was actually a sheep, not a goat?

She was no sheep. This truly was a beast who followed her own metal path. Rock on, Biquette.
