We thought it was pretty great when Kerry King earned a spot at the Jager table earlier this year. It turns out that they’re not the only commercial entity that digs Slayer. For a Halloween-themed commercial for their new Google Chromebook, Google uses Slayer’s “Raining Blood” as it’s soundtrack. It’s pretty amazing to see where Reign in Blood has come in 26 years. From one of the most extreme albums ever at the time to being used to hawk a $249 computer. In fact, if you were to tell a Slayer fan in 1986 that one day the last song on that album would be used to sell a $249 laptop, there’s at least two things in that sentence they wouldn’t believe.
