Slayer their walking papers regarding Slayer sponsored NASCAR team car. J.J. Yeley’s No. 54 car was scheduled to race earlier this month painted to promote the Slayer Farewell Tour, but that never happened.
I guess Slayer wasn’t Redneck enough, because the team pulled the plug on the Slayer sponsorship in favor of PODS.
The team was not clear about the decision to forgo the Slayer sponsorship and only released this tweet.
I’m sure; the decision had much to do with protecting the right-wing Cristian bureaucracy of the sport. Slayer has been saying since the mid-eighties that they were not Satanists. Tom Araya even identifies himself as a Christian, but no, Slayer is still too terrifying for NASCAR fans.
Ironically, NASCAR has no problem with sponsoring a Kid Rock car, even though his lyrics gloried pimping, cocaine, homophobia and smacking women, but a little fo-fu Satanism is a bit too much!!

After getting bombarded with requests about the Jeff Hanneman “Still Reigning” Picture Frame I posted on Instagram, I decided to make a test pressing to see if I could replicate it. The test looked amazing and even better than I expected. I am making a limited quantity available for now. I hand make each one. This is not some cheap Ali Babba crap.
See The “Unboxing” On YouTube
Also, if you watch the video to the end — take note of the “secret compartment” 🙂 I’m not sure I’m going to keep putting these in after the first run (or if there will be another run LOL).
All item is hand-made and not cheap Chinese stuff!
The picture frame can stand up or be mounted on a wall.
This is not official Slayer merchandise ., it is simply a tribute to the greatest thrash metal guitarist/songwriter of all time Mr. Jeffrey John Hanneman 1/31/1964 – 5/2/2013. Ships USPS economy with tracking in a padded 8.5 x 6 mailer with an extra layer of bubble wrap to prevent breakage. Feel free to contact me on eBay if you have any questions, comments or concerns.
Top Thrash Metal Albums Albums You Can Only Find On eBay
It’s not like the old days, where you can drive to Tower Records and get any album you want. For certain titles there is nowhere to go but eBay if you want them! These are my picks…
1. The DefJam Reign In Blood
The Original 1987 Def Jam copy of Reign In Blood 1st pressing: This is a very hard to find pressing of Reign In Blood the record company wouldn’t even stamp their logo to because of the controversy surrounding Angel Of Death! The original copy of the DefJam Rain in blood when American records
Win An Original Def Jam Copy Of Reign In Blood For 99 Cents!!
This is something I am going to be doing every Thursday night. It is officially dubbed “The Thursday Night Chopping Block.” I am going to be offering up a piece of metal history at auction. A record like this you could easily be a “BUY IT NOW” for 85$ and sell in a day. When I say, “I’m putting it on the chopping block” – by putting it up for auction, the auctions don’t always go as you expect and sometimes backfires.
This Week On The Copping Block It’s Slayer!
This week we have the Holy Grail of Thrash Metal Vinyl – Slayer’s Reign In Blood. Not just any copy of Reign In Blood this is an original Def Jam from 1987. It was my personal copy, so it has been played, but it has also been taken special care of because it’s only my favorite album of all time.
Remember in the event of a tie, he (or she) who bid first takes all, so don’t watch for too long – this one will go fast!
Lastly, some crass commercialism…
Be sure to follow this link to my store to sign up for my mailing list to stay in the loop about exclusive coupons, private auctions, special discount and offer for subscribers ONLY as well as a schedule of what will be on the chopping block every THURSDAY night at 10 PM PST!
