HANSON HEARTS SLIPKNOT

150

A few years ago, Vince and I were at a Mastodon/Converge show at the Starland Ballroom in New Jersey (where, if memory serves, we met Kip for the first time!), when the In-Between Sets Dude on the PA announced that Hanson would be playing the venue on such and such a date in the near future. Needless to say, the crowd started booing, and then Dude on the PA was all, “I know, they suck, but they sell out every time they play here!”

I’m not really sure that I have a point, but I couldn’t think of any other way to connect Hanson to metal in order to introduce this video of Hanson playing Slipknot’s “Wait and Bleed.”

Apparently this was part of an elaborate April Fool’s joke, in which the band announced on Shockhound that they were recording a Slipknot covers album. I still don’t think Hanson are any good, but I’ll give them credit for taking the gag as far as they did.
