All hell breaks loose, but that instrumental part is one divination in musical form. Immortal classic! If you're a Headbanger and don't like it, go knitting like an old woman and fuck off, too!!!

As much as I've always liked certain parts of the song, I always found it to be veering a little too close to "This Is Spinal Tap". The lyrics and the vocal are my least favorite parts of the tune...
