Heavy Metal Music For Your Thanksgiving Playlist

turkeyThere are hardly any Heavy Metal cuts that I can think of that deal with the themes of Thanksgiving, but here are some that we can loosely connect to the holiday (click on the songs to listen).

“Indians” by the thrash metal pioneers Anthrax can work with the following lyrics that honor the Native Americans (sort of):

Cry for the indians
Die for the indians
Cry for the indians
Cry, cry, cry for the indians
Love the land and fellow man
Peace is what we strive to have
Some folks have none of this
Hatred and prejudice

“Run To The Hills” by Iron Maiden—every holiday list seems to include at least one Iron Maiden tune, even if the content of the tune speaks of the opposing view:

White man came across the sea
He brought us pain and misery
He killed our tribes, he killed our creed
He took our game for his own need

“God Gave Rock n Roll To You” by Kiss—barely fits on the list, but shouldn’t we be thankful for rock n roll on a day devoted to giving thanks…amen.

God gave rock and roll to you, gave rock and roll to you
Put it in the soul of everyone

“Kayboldum” by Moribound Oblivion—it’s only logical to incorporate some black metal from Istanbul, TURKEY!

Well, this list pretty much sucks as finding the ultimate Thanksgiving Heavy Metal tunes proves to be pretty difficult (for me). If you have any ideas, please share, and have a very Happy Thanksgiving.
