Today's YouTube Clip To Swing Your Heavy Metal Hair To

If there is one frequently asked question about this blog, it is "How did you come up with the name Hangar 39?" Well, today is your lucky day because I'm going to provide the answer. Granted, I've told three of The Five what it is, but for those that may have stumbled upon this on their travels down the series of tubes that is the information superhighway, here's the scoop. The 39 comes from two sources: one, it was my hockey number at one point. I wore it in honor of one of my favorite players as a kid, Doug Gilmour. Gilmour, who was nicknamed "Killer," wore #39 when he played for the Calgary Flames and when I took the number, there weren't many players out there that had it.

The second comes from this song, which I was listening to when I was thinking of a blog name. It's "Hangar 18" by Megadeth. Now besides the fact that it's a kickass jam, it also comes complete with one of the most ridiculous metal videos ever made (this might have to be a separate post). The video has Megadeth surrounded by Vic Rattlehead and a bunch of Muppets that are supposed to be aliens. One of the aliens, I swear, looks like the creature from "Mac And Me."

So with that, enjoy the heaviness and the unintentional comedy that is "Hangar 18."
