This shirtless dude headbanging to Slayer during Hurricane Florence is the hero we need…

…but not the one we deserve.


If this all sounds awfully familiar, well, hey — you’re right.

This fearless fella, Lane Pittman, went viral back in 2016 for his metal ways during Hurricane Matthew. And now he’s back in the streets, American flag in one hand, badassery in the other, ready to take on Hurricane Florence and all her blustery ways. The wind might not be at his back, but the nation sure is.

Do it for North Carolina, do it for Kevin the tattered American flag, do it for Slayer.

Do it for America, fuck yeah.
