What the Hell? You all complain they don't get the recognition they deserve, then when someone recognizes them, you bitch about the group selling out. What-the-fuck-ever, be happy they're finally getting their just dues. — Ivan
no fucking way I'm going to be there LONG LIVE SLAYER!!!!! — Jose Pena
at least it's not at walmart — Marshall Letchworth
If Hot Topic is the only store with the balls to take Slayer, then they're the only store with balls — From the Heaven of My Heart
It's not like they have much choice. If fucking Tower or somebody like that was still around, they'd probably go there. For them to do this anywhere should cause only excitement and praise not whining and bitching. SLAYER FOREVER! — Steve O
