  • I hate the fact that the term “slayer fan” is a pejorative.
  • I hate the fact that the term “slayer fan” deserves to be a pejorative.
  • I hate the fact that so many slayer fans attended slayer concerts. It’s actually frightening to know there were that many parolees in one metro area.
  • I hate the fact that Tom Araya’s vocals are an acquired taste.
  • I hate the fact that, like drinking your own urine, Tom’s vocals are a taste most people will never acquire.
  • I hate the fact that Dave Lombardo doesn’t get the credit he deserves for being the greatest drummer of all time because his band’s name is Slayer and not Rush.
  • I hate the fact that Kerry King will never allow the release of a Slayer’s greatest hits album because all the royalties would just go to Jeff Hanneman’s estate.
  • I hate the fact that I need to remember to take Dramamine at least 30 minutes before listening to any Slayer solo.
  • I hate the fact that Rick Rubin forced Jeff Hanneman to focus on Slayer thus aborting potentially the greatest thrash punk band ever with Hanneman, Lombardo and Rocky George.
  • I hate the fact that Kerry King joining Megadeth fell through. I want to live in the alternate universe where Slayer gets the respect it deserves without carrying his dead weight and Megadeth fans have to argue over what their favorite era was…Marty or Kerry.
  • I hate the fact that Kerry wears his own band merch. Only one person in metal is cool enough to pull that off and that is 80’s era James Hetfield.
  • I hate the fact that Kerry King cuts the sleeves off ALL his Slayer shirts. Nobody other than some random meth whore in Jacksonville Fl thinks his flabby 60 year old arms covered in tribal tatts is cool to look at.
  • I hate the fact that the rest of the band let Kerry put “Payback” on the God Hates Us All album instead of putting it on the fridge where it belongs.
  • I hate the fact that Slayer performed Payback live in concert instead of all 4 members simultaneously taking a huge greasy shit on stage for 3:04 and not wiping.
  • I hate the fact that when my then teenage daughter heard “Jihad” for the first time she turned to me and said “Dad, you know there is nothing about that song that remotely qualifies as music, right?”
  • I hate the fact that Slayer guitar tab was a meme before anyone knew what a meme was.
  • I hate the fact that Kerry King thinks wearing real chains while playing live is an accomplishment but hitting anything other than random notes on the fretboard is not.
  • I hate the fact that Jeff Hanneman wrote a 5 minute song about nazi atrocities and was branded a nazi sympathizer while Steven Spielberg made a 3 hour movie about nazi atrocities and won all sorts of awards.
  • I hate that fact that Kahler management has spent so much time praying Kerry King would switch to a Floyd Rose so they could regain market share in the tremolo market. Their prayers went unanswered. There is no God and he hates us all.
  • I hate the fact that I have to be in the mood to listen to Slayer music.
  • I hate the fact that I have to watch mutilation porn and old WW2 footage of concentration camps to actually get in the mood to listen to Slayer.
  • I hate the fact that the only reason Slayer fans had to get excited about Slayer’s final studio album “Repentless” was there was possibly a small piece of a riff that Hanneman wrote called “Piano Wire”.
  • I hate the fact that Slayer brought Gary motherfucking Holt into the band and STILL….. the only reason Slayer fans had to get excited about Slayer’s final studio album “Repentless” was there was possibly a small piece of a riff that Hanneman wrote called “Piano Wire”.
  • I hate the fact that you have to “explain” Slayer to non-Slayer fans.
  • I hate the fact that you have to explain the DSM-5 manual of mental disorders to Slayer fans and why it applies to them.
  • I hate the fact that Slayer songs introduced me to the concept of necrophilia probably at an age when I shouldn’t have learned about such things.
  • I hate the fact that “South of Heaven” isn’t considered Slayer’s best album when it when it has no Kerry songs on it making it, by definition, a flawless Slayer album.
  • I hate the fact that when I first heard “Hell Awaits” I doubted my atheism and started going to church just to be on the safe side.
  • I hate the fact that Jeff did not respect his liver as much as the rest of the thrash world wished he would have.
  • I hate the fact that Slayer is considered the AC/DC of thrash metal when AC/DC always had TWO well respected guitar players.
  • I hate the fact that Slayer fan boys think Kerry is “the man” because of his image and attitude while Slayer enthusiasts KNOW Jeff has always been the heart and soul of the band.
  • I hate the fact that not enough people know the last fact making it difficult to be taken seriously as a Slayer fan.
  • I hate the fact that my refusal to buy a shit album like “Repentless” means I will never own Slayer’s entire discography.
  • I hate the fact that some people argued Paul Bostaph was as good a drummer as Dave Lombardo. Even Paul Bostaph’s mom doesn’t thing Paul Bostaph is as good a drummer as Dave Lombardo.
  • I hate the fact that I consider myself a huge Slayer fan but I haven’t taken a knife and carved it into my skin to prove it so technically I am still at poseur status on the Slayer fan tier level board.
  • I hate the fact that even though Metallica has Lars and Slayer doesn’t, and Metallica made a record with Lou Reed and Slayer didn’t, and Metallica played with Miley Cyrus and Slayer didn’t, and Metallica made St Anger and Slayer didn’t, and Metallica also made Load and Reload and Slayer didn’t and that for awhile Metallica copied Jane’s Addiction’s image and Slayer didn’t…. I am forced to admit Metallica are the far better band.
  • I hate the fact that Tony Iommi is considered the godfather of metal. With all due respect he is the grandfather and Hanneman was the true godfather. #hehastheriffs#
  • I hate the fact that Dave Lombardo toured with Slayer and made less money annually than I did not touring with anyone.
  • I hate the fact that Slayer’s cover of “In-a-gadda-da-vida” isn’t considered the greatest cover of all time. Serious. That’s not a joke. Listen to the original. Then listen to Slayer’s version.
  • I hate the fact that the best musical contribution of Kerry King’s entire musical career was on the Beastie Boys’ “Fight for your right (to party)”. That’s just sad. Seriously.
  • I hate the fact that you have to know prison yard rules before attending a Slayer concert.
  • I hate the fact that Jeff Hanneman’s used guitar picks on ebay cost about the same as a used car.
  • I hate the fact that Tom Araya is, by all accounts, a genuine sweetheart of a person, and also a Trump supporter. I don’t know how to process this incompatible duality.
  • I hate the fact Kerry King referred to Hanneman as worm food at his memorial. Very dismissive to the guy whose talent propped him up and paid his bills for 32 years.
  • I hate the fact that everybody goes to the bathroom or buys beer and nachos at the exact same time at a Slayer concert which is always during the one obligatory Kerry King written song they play live.
  • I hate the fact that it took me so long to nail Slayer’s guitar tone without stopping to think its not something I, or anyone else, really wants in the first place.
  • I hate the fact that people in numerous comments sections always associate scooped mids and the Boss Metal Zone with Slayer tone. Clearly Qanon roots run deep.
  • I hate the fact that people say no one is scared of Slayer anymore but conveniently forget that it was the only band that anyone was actually scared of in the first place.
  • I hate the fact that “Slayer” is a dumb band name. Not as dumb as “Iwrestledabearonce”. But it’s up there.
  • I hate the fact that Metallica saw all of Mustaine’s immense talent but also recognized he was an asshole and jettisoned him from the band regardless, while Slayer saw all of Kerry King’s lack of talent and also recognized he was an asshole and somehow thought he was a keeper.
  • I hate the fact that just as I was gonna start taking Dean seriously as a guitar manufacturer for diverting away from cheap Dime models, they go and sign Kerry King and give him a signature model. Sorry Dean but in the real world you can strike out on just two pitches.
  • I hate the fact that Kerry King teased that he’s going to do a post Slayer project with Holt, Bostaph and Anselmo. That’s like telling me a naked Mila Kunis is gonna come over to my house, enter my bed…and then fart in my face. There’s just one element of that scenario I don’t care for and ruins the rest of it for me.
  • …to be continued?........
As a life long fan, just having some fun people.......

I've seen Slayer live, bought at least two of their albums, and I still can't really get into them. Some of the riffs kick ass, though.

I'm having fun but this is a collection of thoughts in my head as I've been binge watching videos (one youtube suggestion begets more of the same) of channels doing Slayer retrospectives and album tier lists and analysis etc....and I have been indulging in watching them and so I put my thoughts down based on what I saw lately in videos and recent threads on this forum. Who hurt me? well it was....oh wait you told me not to answer

I stopped reading when he dropped the same megadeth/kerry king joke for the 6th time this week.
6th? Don't think so but clearly you and I don't have the same taste in comedy or math

Everybody knows that Dave Mustaine was cooler than James Hetfield. Always was and always will be.

I hate the fact that WASP has released some killer records (The Crimson Idol, for instance) yet Slayer releases mediocre, mundane rehashes and is somehow more popular.
