The Damned Things are a new supergroup that consists of folks from Fallout Boy, Anthrax, and Everytime I Die
According to guitarist Scott Ian comic book fan and comedian Patton Oswalt came up with the treatment for the video, which isn’t really difficult to believe since it’s based around a rock band that discovers they can save through the power of rock. Now that I think about it, it’s a very Tenacious D-type of thinking, I’m smelling tour! For the director, who better to recruit than Metalocalypse creator Brendon Small?
Oswalt’s friend, fellow comic book shopper, and definite metalhead Brian Posehn has a cameo in the video as well. It might be the best scene, who knows!? You’ll have to watch.
Scott Ian rocking a SAMCRO t-shirt…and I’m not at all surprised that guy is into a TV show about outlaw motorcycle gangs.
