The Oakland Raiders might be the most metal NFL team there is. Their colors are black and silver, their fans are completely insane, and half of the big four count them as their favorite team. With no NFL football team in Los Angeles, Oakland is as close to as many Angelenos have, and many from the area are fans of the Raiders as well, including Slayer. Jeff Hanneman, rest his soul, was a gigantic fan, as is guitarist Kerry King, who talked about going to Raiders games with Testament’s Chuck Billy and has sported a Raiders jersey while playing.
