Tom Araya: "Well, they kind of are, especially if you're good. You know…they'll give into you."
The Metal Show: I don't know, man. I saw you guys here on the tour with PANTERA and STATIC-X where STATIC-X got booed right off the stage while people were chanting "SLAYER!"
Tom Araya: "Dude, come on. You're talking about STATIC-X. (laughing a lot) One night…it's pretty understandable why they got booed (Laughs)."
The Metal Show: Very nice, man, I’m sure they are thrilled to hear that.
