That Steel Panther song/video is hilarious. Truly a touching ballad.

Also, Dethklok doesn't have a "c" in it.

Good eye, thanks. I always end up with at least one typo that someone catches in these round-ups.

I was half expecting someone to complain about me posting the Steel Panther video because it's not "metal," but I'm glad someone appreciates it.

Thanks. Great dudes. And if you are or ever were a fan of BYD, check that interview. They were a lot of fun (and a little drunk).
