We Sold Our Souls To MTV

Hey, Metalunderground.com got a mention on MTV.com for the April fools stories posted the other day!

The Metal Underground (www.metalunderground.com) truly got into the fraudulent spirit with over a dozen phony headlines and message-board threads. These included ones suggesting that Slayer had broken up, with Kerry King leaving to write songs with Avril Lavigne and the rest of the band starting a side project with Creed's Mark Tremonti; Fred Durst, following his request that his band be known as limpbizkit, had legally changed his name to fredurst; Metallica and Megadeth had repaired their relationship and would tour together next year; and details about a "Summer Sanitation" tour featuring such bands as Def Tone Loc and PullMyFinger 11.

Props to siN's Metal News and The PRP for the mention of their hoaxes and full-site makeovers as well. They were done well, er purposely not well, er something.

So does this mean we've sold out now that MTV has mentioned us? Oh the jokes abound, but alas April 1st is past... But I still think that's hella cool to get mentioned like that.

What's Next?
