Killswitch Disengage.

How does someone just fill in "as needed" when replacing a guitar player? "We are just going to go without guitar tonight and see it how goes. We may need your services tomorrow night though."

I'm sure all of their crew are musicians and know the songs for this type of thing

Uninteresting band, with uninteresting members to boot, but how they came with the band name is somewhat amusing IMHO. I read an article a while back and a couple people commented that they knew them all from back in the day and bore witness to the five guys sitting naked on a bed getting ready to have an orgy. Adam Dorkowitz walked over to the light switch, waited patiently until the members called out "killswitch" in unison, then Adam D walked back to the bed and yelled "engage".

^ Thank you. I wondered for 20 years how they came up with that. For COM 110 I have to give a speech tomorrow on Metal Music and I don't have anything to say yet. I might use that.

Uninteresting band,<- statement makes ZERO Sense, you try hard to be funny, but come across as illiterate & begging for acceptance upon a board of strangers"witness to the five guys sitting naked on a bed getting ready to have an orgy. Adam Dorkowitz walked over to the light switch, waited patiently until the members called out "killswitch" in unison, then Adam D walked back to the bed and yelled "engage". you're probably the same retard behind the "Serj" gimmick-fck HIM & fck YOU T00"

I used to eat those Toast Stroetzels when I was kid. Now I'm 30 and settle for 1/2 an Ezekiel Cinnamon Raisin Muffin. I fondly think back to those days from time to time.

Don't worry, everyone. Ben Weinman has been following their tour bus anxiously waiting for this exact opportunity to fill in on guitar!
