Jeff Hanneman's death is still fresh in our memories. The legendary guitarist would have been 50 today and of course Slayer has paid a homage to him on this day. The band released a message talking about his influence and the mark he left in metal for years to come. His legacy will live on. RIP.

Message from the band: "Today would have been Jeff Hanneman's 50th birthday, presenting us with another reminder of how much we all miss him since he passed last May 2. The entire Slayer family appreciates the fans' tributes and recognition of the trails Jeff blazed in thrash metal and the songs he wrote that defined a genre. We - the fans, the press, the Slayer family - know what Jeff's accomplishments were, we know the long-lasting effect his talent will continue to have on young musicians just starting their careers. Jeff Hammenan belongs to US, the rebels, the misfits, the mavericks, the ones who go left when everyone else goes right, the ones who push against the grain and introduce real change into the world - just like Jeff did. Happy Birthday Jeff!"

I'm blasting some "Angel of Death"

Probably one of the ten best songs of all time.

Hammenan? Really?

Damn, I'm usually a fan of spiders, but on this day... no. Wait... do I really want to be prejudiced against a whole species just because a single being from their group happened to kill one of America's best metal guitarists? I think not...

Happy birthday to another dead man, and to his family

His serpentine coils have unwound. RIP Jeff Hanneman.

I forgot how badly he had been bitten by that spider. That probably did not help his immune system.

I honestly forgot that this happened. Not sure what that does for my credibility as a metalhead.

Metal credibility intact, but hopefully you don't have Alzheimer's.
