Araya gets a key

For those of you who don’t know, Tom Araya was born in Viña del Mar, Chlie, but moved to the States when he was 5. He later fronted one of the most influential metal bands of all time. The definition of the American dream. Or day I say, the American NIGHTMARE? Since, you know, that sounds more metal and less effeminate.

Anyway, apparently the mayor of his birthplace, Virginia Reginato (haha, virgin), will give him the key to the city. I don’t know about you, but I didn’t know Chile had locks around their cities. There’s a cruel miner joke in there somewhere.

I’m kind of speechless; I don’t what to say. They’re probably gonna change the locks when they give me the key. [Laughs] It’s an honor. I think it’s great. I don’t have a reply. I’m more speechless than anything. It’s not something I expected. That’s never happened before. You see other people receive rewards like that, but it’s usually people of political status or someone that’s really done something for the community or done something important. I’m excited. I don’t know what to expect. . . All I can say is: thank you. That’s about it. said Tom while weeping.

Since Tom likes keys so much, I am officially giving him the key to Dose Of Metal. Tom, if you’re reading this, make the jump to see it.
