And now for the Fall Out Boy drum battle to Slayer’s “Raining Blood” no one asked for

Posted by on June 25, 2014


Last Sunday, Andrew Hurley and Patrick Stump of Fall Out Boy included a sample of Slayer’s “Raining Blood” in a “drum off” that the two partake in regularly on their current tour. This particular part of the show also includes samples of Jay Z and Kanye West songs, while the addition of Slayer appears to have become a permanent part of the performance. Sure, the thought of Fall Out Boy including a sample of any Slayer song might be appalling to some fans (even though Hurley has played in a handful of hardcore bands, while also did The Damned Things with his FOB bandmate Joe Trohman). But if Fall Out Boy playing a snippet of Slayer introduces a bunch of younger fans to heavier music, then who are we to complain? Check out the video of the “drum off” above.
