If you have a Hardee's nearby they have the same parent company as Carl's Jr, CKE Restaurants.

I think the guy named Prick is a troll. Everything he wrote indicates Trolling. So nobody pay him attention.

There aren't many ways Metal gets introduced to the public. The mainstream media usually Ignores the genre. Good for Carls jr and hardy's for recognizing the Metal, especially a Band like Death Angel and not a band like metallica or Disturbed. Not to take anything away from those two bands but its just that everybody knows who they are already. The Only people I know who know who Death Angel are Metal fans. know any body who sees this commercial will here the music and hopefully this will help the genre a little bit. Not that it needs help, even though Metal lacks mainstream recognition yet it still has very devout and numerous followers.

talk about a trip when i first heard the commercial. i was at a non metal fan friend's house when i hear the beginnings of a song close to my heart playing from somewhere...... and lo and behold its coming from of all places, the tv. never would have thought a band i had roadied for so many years ago would end up in a national commercial. i think its in your face great

The Ultra-Violence was such a raw album with riffs and speed galore. I am still a bit shocked that of all the music in this world Carl's plays Death Angel. Brilliant!
