Metalocalypse, Season 3, Pt. 2: Fridays at 9:00pm ET/PT starting Friday, November 12th
Dethklok is the world’s most popular band – so popular that thousands of fans will travel to a remote area of Scandanavia to hear them perform a single song: a jingle for a coffee company. So popular that these fans will sign “pain waivers” in case anything truly horrible happens to them at a show, which invariably occurs. The band members are also incredibly selfish and stupid, and they create a wave of mayhem, death and destruction wherever they go.
