Lamb of God, Underoath, and More Got Skewered by Wendy’s On ‘Roast Day’

Published on:

A new yearly tradition in metal and hardcore is the annual ‘Roast Day’ by fast food chain Wendy’s, who take one day a year to verbally bitchslap anyone who asks for it on social media. In recent years, the burger chain has gone all in on any metal and hardcore bands who dare rattle their Twitter cage. Well, yesterday was Wendy’s annual Roast Day, and once more plenty of bands asked for it — and received in spades.

Biggest among this year’s crop of metal and hardcore bands to go head to head with the makers of the Baconator was Lamb of God, who received the following simple yet crushing response:

It wasn’t just bands, though — Wendy’s also got pinged by Fearless Record, who got a received a pretty solid flick of the hand in return:

Wonderful. Wendy’s, we salute you. Thank you for taking one day a year to let us cackle at the bands we love for being a bunch of jackasses.
