When you think of a metalhead, tell me, what comes to mind? Well maybe stonewashed jeans, a mullet,
a guy who's evolutionarily one step behind? When Rob Halford came out of the closet; it may not have been a big thing. Well today we're one step closer, to hearing the metal dudes sing, "I wanna be, I wanna be a homosexual!" Statistics say, chances of being gay are 1 in 10. So that means there's a 40% chance that one of the guys in Pantera likes men, so I'd say it's safe to say that many more metal guys are homosexual. That may frustrate the gay community. Why would they want the ugly metalheads avaiable? (the gross metalheads, they go to bed without dinner, when they misbehave) See i told you metal dudes are gay too, and I haven't seen the proof so far that your sexuality determines the way you play guitar, oooh I'd love for everyone in heavy metal to be homosexual, if not just to make the nazi fucking pricks in Slayer a little uncomfortable.

    General CommentI think this song is about how people who don't pay attention in statistics class miscalculate probabilities and bring shame upon their families for doing so.

    General Commentthis song is a salute to rob halford of judas priest. he was openly gay and in a metal band. atom wrote this song to commend halford on being openly gay in a scene where there is so much homophobia.

    General Commenti dont think slayer are actually nazis or trying to promote nazi beliefs. kerry king has said in numerous interviews that he's just a world war 2 buff. other bands have worn swastikas too, just for the shock value, especially early punk bands (sex pistols, new york dolls, siouxe and the banshees, etc) and they certainly arent nazis.

    and i have heard slayers song "angel of death" about aushwitz, but most of their songs are about death and pain, this one is just in the context of the holocast. you dont have to agree with the motivation behind something to make a song about it. like i dont think cannibal corpse actually partake in "meat hook sodomy".
