Metal Comedy Galore!

This week, Faults in the Vaults heads into the pit to discuss a pair of headbangin' comedies from the 1990's. We're declaring that the party is over for 1992's Wayne's World in order to fight for some air-time on behalf of 1994's Airheads

For the first time on the podcast, we had the honor of interviewing the writer of our featured movie. That's right, in the latest edition of the The Soapbox Spotlight we have Airheads! writer Rich Wilkes on the show!

Elsewhere in the episode, This Week in Torrents highlights the long sought after Mexican TV edit of Evil Dead 2, featuring scenes never before seen on any release.

This time, the guys imagine worlds in which other SNL skits had reached the blockbuster success of Wayne's World.
