Brian Posehn Premieres New Song “Grandpa Metal” Feat. Scott Ian (Anthrax) & Kim Thayil (Soundgarden)

Brian Posehn has premiered a new track, titled “Grandpa Metal,” via Billboard. This song features Scott Ian (Anthrax) and Kim Thayil (Soundgarden) and it will serve as the title track of Posehn’s new comedy metal album, which is set to be released on February 14.

Posehn commented:

“We had the title. The idea is that all guys my age [53] are kind of grandpa metal, stuck in the ’80s or whenever they liked heavy metal. Their opinions have not changed since then.”

“I came on the idea of just making fun of Scott [Ian], ’cause he literally hasn’t liked a new band since Refused, and I find that funny. Once I decided it would just be me busting his balls, I started filling the song with as many old-guy jokes as I could.”

“[Then I] got onto this thread commenting on all the different things I love about heavy metal and having a sense of humor about all these different genres of music and commenting on them.”

Posehn said the following about the album:

“The original concept for this album came from bands like Scatterbrain and S.O.D., and even Cheech and Chong. They all made music that was fun and funny, heavy music that also made you laugh.

I wanted this to be the ultimate comedy/metal record, a loving record that made fun of some of the things in heavy metal, so I called all my friends and asked for a bunch of favors.

There’s a Satan song, and there’s a Viking song, there’s one song that sounds like Black Metal, and then there’s one that sounds like a Van Halen party song. The intention was just to make a funny metal/comedy record for people who like both of those things.”

He also added:

“This was such a dream project for me. I wanted to take my time, I wanted it to be perfect, so it took us six years to complete. It’s the ‘Chinese Democracy‘ of comedy-metal records. And it didn’t cost thirteen million dollars to make.”
