The answer is SIMPLE! Not only has SLAYER kicked ass since the dawn of metal, but they are NOT SELL OUTS! They make music not only for themselves but for the people. Metal is Metal. It shouldn't be as gay as the new Slipknot, or alot of the new crap that they are callin music that is out there today. The main reason for my faithfulness is the fucking shows! I have seen SLAYER at least 13 times and they KICK ASS EVERY FUCKING TIME! Even when Tom was the injured man, they kicked ass. Been listening to them since high school and will be litening to them at my funeral!
