The station will feature a playlist of every song ever released by one of the world's best and most influential metal bands, including B-sides and tracks from its new album, "Christ Illusion," due in stores Tuesday, August 8.

"Having Slayer's music played on AOL Radio is pretty mind-numbing," said Slayer's guitarist Kerry King, "but it's terrific that the station will be playing every song we've ever recorded for our fans."

The "All Slayer" station joins an array of Artist spotlight stations on AOL Radio, including All Metallica, All Pearl Jam, All Green Day, All Dave Matthews and many others.

Hot Topic carries all sorts of stuff related to music from trendy new sh** to the classics (i.e. Sabbath, Zepelin, etc). The people who shop there (not everyone who sells something there) get ragged on as the chain has turned from once semi-respectable to the mallcore/mallgoth trend-metal hangout.

charest , if you are a slayer fan then why are you agreeing with someone who has been on this site bashing slayer and any other type of metal besides nu-metal? sure korn is heavy but who gives a f*** it still doesnt qualify them as a "good metal band"

Thats funny.

People get so worked up over metal (Slayer) even today.....Especially with all this carnage going on in the middle east...Not to mention the avalanche of more pressing problems in America today.

I love Americans...I love being one.....We're a funny lot.
