Billboard Magazine: Comedian Brian Posehn’s ‘Grandpa Metal’ Album Features Members of Anthrax, Slipknot, Fall Out Boy & More

Comedian Brian Posehn has friends in metal places. The Uncle Nick star has corralled a murderer’s row of metal and rock help for his upcoming metal album Grandpa Metal, due out on Feb. 13 on Megaforce Records.

The album produced by Jay Ruston (Anthrax), will feature a massive list of guest collaborators, including Fall Out Boy members Patrick Stump and Joe Trohman, Dokken‘s Jeff Pilson, “Weird” Al Yankovic, Dethklok‘s Brendon Small, Anthrax‘s Scott Ian and Jonathan Donais and Slipknot‘s Corey Taylor.

The album’s first single is a thundering death metal take on A-ha‘s iconic “Take on Me,” featuring Rob Cavestany (Death Angel), Jill Janus (Huntress), Chuck Billy and Alex Skolnick (Testament) and Steve Souza (Exodus). Also appearing on the album: Gary Holt (Slayer), Pearl Aday and Johan Hegg (Amon Amarth), Michael Starr (Steel Panther), Jacob Bunton (Mars Electric) and Soundgarden guitarist Kim Thayil.

The album will also feature a cover of the novelty Ylvis tune “The Fox (What Does the Fox Say?)” with vocals from Taylor and Starr. “I honestly feel that every good song would be better if it were heavy metal,” Posehn said in a press release. “And I think I proved my case with ‘Take on Me’. It’s such a catchy song, it’s so cool, but I always thought if it had three guitars instead of a keyboard, it would be even cooler.” Pre-order the album here.

The track list for Grandpa Metal:

1) “Intro to Satan”
2) “Satan’s Kind of a Dick”
3) “Scary Nightmare”
4) “One Quarter Viking, Three Quarter’s Pussy”
5) “Big Fat Rock”
6) “My Phone Call with Weird Al”
7) “Take on Me”
8) “Grandpa Metal”
9) “New Music Sucks”
10) “New Music Sucks Reprise”
11) “Goblin Love”

13) “The Fox (What Does the Fox Say)”
14) “Super Secret Track”

My book is finally available everywhere TODAY!

My old pal, comedy genius, Bob Odenkirk said this about it: “Forever Nerdy is the only book on Brian Posehn and his curious, eventful, sad, sometimes tragic, defiant, fun, loopy life that you will ever need to read. Throw away all the others on this subject matter and get this one! Joyce had Ulysses, now Posehn has his Forever Nerdy to engage your eyeballs and while away your hours, whether you’re stuck in Omaha, or in an airport, or on the toilet, or perhaps on a toilet on an airplane over Omaha (a trifecta). Buy it, read it, commit it to memory, and you can be on my team on trivia night!”

One of my favorite writers, Gail Simone had this to say about it. “Of course it’s hilarious, you expect that from Brian Posehn, but the revelation is the emotional moments, which are delivered with a dopey grin, but land like a sledgehammer to the gut. One of the best books I’ve read in ages.”
