This was allegedly sent to the producers of the FunFunFun Fest in Austin, where Slayer played earlier this year, and dear god we hope it's real. Because as great as Slayer is, knowing that they order "hand sanitizer" AND "hand satanizer" makes them ten times as great.
Last Friday night at Coachella, the Black Keys brought John Fogerty of Creedence Clearwater Revival onstage to play "The Weight" in memory of the recent death of The Band drummer Levon Helm. Everyone who wasn't at Coachella suddenly became 100 percent more regretful that they couldn't make it.

"Reanimated corpse" isn't entirely accurate. It's actually a hologram of the late, great West-coast rapper, which gave a surprise performance to finish off the first week of Coachella 2012.
