Mike Patton to Perform The National Anthem at Tomorrow’s NFL Playoff Game Between Los Angeles Rams and Dallas Cowboys


Mike Patton, frontman of Faith No More, Tomahawk and Mr. Bungle — and general visionary and all-around much-loved fella — will sing the National Anthem before tomorrow’s NFL playoff game between the Los Angeles Rams and Dallas Cowboys. The broadcast starts at 8:00pm EST / 5:00pm PST on Fox.

And that’s all we know at the moment. It isn’t clear how Patton was selected — he’s not native to either Los Angeles or Dallas — or how this came to be. But it’s really fuckin’ cool, I’ll say that. Patton’s got pipes. Can’t wait to see him belt out “The Star-Spangled Banner” in a stadium!

Patton joins Anthrax frontman Joey Belladonna as having sung the anthem at major sporting events in recent years.

This should be a good one! Tune in if you can.
