SLAYER Played On Jimmy Fallon Last Night (A Few Observations)

Here are a few of my favorite things Jimmy said before and after this performance:

  • “…their iconic song ‘Raining Blood'”
  • “THAT IS HOW YOU DO IT!”
  • “Music guest Slayer!”
  • “Thank you SO much”

Which also begs the question, what were my favorite things that he probably said to Jill Kargman during the performance:

  • Man this is a long intro.
  • Is this song instrumental?
  • When do the vocals come in?
  • That’s not Dave Lombardo.
  • THAT IS HOW YOU DO IT!

Which further begs the question, what were my favorite things that Fallon’s younger-skewing audience said to their parents as they watched this:

  • Mommy, what’s this music?
  • Mommy, who are those old guys?
  • Mommy, Jimmy doesn’t really like this, right?
  • Mommy, can we watch James Corden?

In a year in which Taylor Swift is being carried out of her apartment in a suitcase, this may be the story to beat.
