Video: Adam Jones From Tool Playing National Anthem
This was making the rounds on the webernets yesterday, so chances are you’ve already seen it. But after the jump, watch something fascinating. Watch a man who knows how to fucking jam pay tribute to the U.S. of A.
I don’t watch wrestling, because it is fake and I’m not a lazy douche bag, so the only way I knew about this clip was I caught it over at Metal Injection. This is not to say those guys are lazy or douche bags. They’re neither. There…disclaimer done.
Anyways, somehow, they found out about this clip, and let me tell you — it may very well be the best rendition of the national anthem ever played. It gets my vote, if ever there’s a poll.
Yes, it’s strange that the WWF or WWE or whatever the fuck you call it these days…yes, it is weird that Adam Jones was sought after by the wrestler dudes, and its doubly weird that Jones said, “I’ll do it.” Maybe he’s a fan, in which case, that disclaimer applies to him as well. Not a lazy douche. I love Adam. I’ve interviewed Adam for this very site.
The event was called SummerSlam. Like I said, I know nothing about wrestling. True story: I interviewed one at the magazine the WWE releases, up there in Connecticut. I had been laid off and was desperate for work. They showed me this company video about how awesome wrestling is, and I kind of faked “oohs” and “aahs” after I was shown display cases with wrestling relics.
I didn’t end up getting the gig, obviously.
