Back in 2006, the "National Day of Slayer" launched as an alternative to the "National Day of Prayer." Holidays commemorate events of great importance or things that bring us great joy. Slayer qualifies as both, and as an excellent spokesperson for the heavy metal movement worldwide.
It's unclear how many metalheads exist on earth, but a tentative number of 100 million seems likely. And when we see metalheads listing heavy metal as their religion on the census, it's clear that an international holiday for metal is not a far-fetched idea.
This year on June 6, as every year on June 6, help advance the cause by publicly demonstrating that you are a metalhead who appreciates the subtle genius of Slayer:
How to Celebrate
- Listen to Slayer at full blast in your car.
- Listen to Slayer at full blast in your home.
- Listen to Slayer at full blast at your place of employment.
- Listen to Slayer at full blast in any public place you prefer.
DO NOT use headphones! The objective of this day is for everyone within earshot to understand that it is the National Day of Slayer. National holidays in America aren't just about celebrating; they're about forcing it upon non-participants.
Taking that participation to a problematic level
- Stage a "Slay-out." Don't go to work. Listen to Slayer.
- Have a huge block party that clogs up a street in your neighborhood. Blast Slayer albums all evening. Get police cruisers and helicopters on the scene. Finish with a full-scale riot.
- Spray paint Slayer logos on churches, synagogues, or cemeteries.
- Play Slayer covers with your own band (since 99% of your riffs are stolen from Slayer anyway).
- Kill the neighbor's dog and blame it on Slayer.
If you'd like to help us prepare for the big event, go to the following social networking sites and stir up some noise!
Save time and money -- buy Reign in Blood. Just be sure to order it in time for June 6th!
