9/11 Marks The Date Slayer Released God Hates Us All...

God Hates Us All is the ninth studio album by American thrash metal band Slayer. Released on September 11, 2001, the album received positive critical reviews and entered the Billboard 200 at number 28. It was recorded in three months at The Warehouse Studio in Canada, and includes the Grammy Award-nominated "Disciple". The album is the band's last to feature drummer Paul Bostaph until Repentless (2015).

God Hates Us All was set for release on July 10; however, concerns regarding audio mixing, the album cover, and the band's label—American Recordings—changing distributor, caused the release date to be delayed until September 11, 2001. The release drew a connection to the September 11 attacks, which was the second time Slayer caused controversy towards one of their releases—the video for "Seasons in the Abyss" was filmed in Egypt and released prior to the Gulf War.[4] In its week of release, God Hates Us All debuted at number 28 on the Billboard 200, and sold 51,000 copies. It entered the Canadian Albums Chart at number 9, and debuted at number 18 on the top Internet album chart. As of August 16, 2006, the album has sold 304,000 copies in the United States.

I have always wondered since that day that i drove all over the city trying to find  a record store still open amidst the state of emergency the country was in. Was it a coincidence or what? I have no clue. Slayer still rules and i am not saying they had any idea but what a crazy date to have to remember your album release! Anyway if any of you do not know what i am talking about check this out might refresh your memory. RIP to all the victims.
