MSNBC's Rachel Maddow Gives A Shout Out To Tampa Death Metal Bands

I'm going on record as saying that Rachel Maddow is a metal fan, she has to be. At the very least, she, or her writers, respect the genre because it's a constant topic of conversation on her MSNBC news show. Last night, on a segment called Debunktion Junction, Maddow confirmed that Tampa, the site of this year's Republican National Convention was indeed the birthplace of death metal. She mostly echoed the sentiments of the Yahoo news article we wrote about earlier this week, but it's still fun to see and even hear death metal on national news. Take a look at the clip:

This is not the first time Maddow mentioned Tampa death metal. In 2010, when Republicans first announced the convention would be in Tampa, Maddow acknowledged the death metal presence in the area. Take a look:
