Slayer Fans. Then And Now.

Maybe I'm an old fart, but I've started to miss the days when people that called themselves "metal fans" didn't look so much like juggalos. This development, by the way, can be traced directly to the rise in popularity of Ozzfest, Cradle Of Filth, and Sepultura's musical output after "Arise". Since when did metal fans start wearing crap like this?

Anyway, I was unable to find footage depicting exactly the type of metal fan I'm talking about. You should still watch the videos below and see the difference in fans that Slayer had back then, versus now. Yes, the current fans are funnier...but also more annoying.

The intro to this video includes some fantastic Exodus stage banter.Please disregard the dope who is seig heiling. Note the elderly black man in the mix. Note the guy who says "Venom rules!" with a mullet and a dirstache, as well as the blond dude with a Raven shirt who screams "upstate mothafucka!"

Please watch the second video all the way to the end. Surprise ending.
