On August 28, MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow featured a segment on her program debunking stories in the news, which focused a bit on death metal, Tampa, and its connection to the Republic National Convention.
Fast forward to the three-minute, 45-second mark to hear Rachel discuss Deicide.
“Tampa is considered the birthplace of death metal,” says Rachel.
“It’s home to such famous death metal bands as Deicide; that was their music video we played a clip of a moment ago. Also, the well-known band Obituary. Also, Hate Eternal and Morbid Angel and the band Cannibal Corpse, which Bob Dole tried to make very famous in the ’90s when he criticized them publicly the year before he ran for president. Bob Dole’s friends at Cannibal Corpse, they were not from Tampa, they’re from New York, but they moved to Tampa, because Tampa is America’s ‘home sweet home’ for death metal.”
She then joked, “Death metal is the honest-to-goodness traditional Tampa experience. If you’re in Tampa for the Republican convention, don’t go to a strip club. Wait ’till you’re going to Cincinnati. Death metal you should check out.”
Watch and learn douche.
