Pantera’s Phil Anselmo Covers the Smiths

Subscribe to on

You know it’s a comedy event if Pantera frontman Phil Anselmo is singing a Smiths song.

That’s exactly what happened Wednesday during a promotional event in New Orleans for Anselmo’s comedic web series ‘Metal Grasshopper.’ According to, the series follows the misadventures of a budding rock star (played by comedian and musician Dave Hill) as Anselmo (playing an exaggerated version of himself) provides sage advice and guidance.

After a stand-up comedy show at One Eyed Jacks, there was a screening of an episode of the series followed by a Q&A session with Anselmo and Hill. That’s presumably when the duo unexpectedly began playing the Smiths‘ mopey classic, ‘Please, Please, Please Let Me Get What I Want.’

Look for what might be 10 four-minute webisodes of ‘Metal Grasshopper’ online sometime this fall.
