Municipal Waste perform SOD/MOD classic with Billy Milano

Municiple Waste Former M.O.D./S.O.D. frontman Billy Milano joined MUNICIPAL WASTE on stage at Red 7 in Austin, Texas on November 12, 2009 to perform a version of the S.O.D. classic "United Forces". Check out the footage here.

Drummer Dave Witte had the following to say about the collaboration:

"S.O.D. is such an important band for the crossover movement, pioneers in fact. We've played united forces on and off for over two years while on tour and made the decision a few months ago to retire it. When we heard we had a chance to play it with Billy singing, we knew we had to do one more time and retire it the right way."

Guitarist Ryan Waste was just as stoked to perform with Billy Milano:

"I was shooting the shit with my buddy Felix Griffin when this big dude comes up to us and sticks out his hand. He looked familiar but I couldn't place it. Ryan, he said, it's Milano. I heard Billy lived in Austin and managed a bar down the street but I was still surprised to see him. The Waste had covered United Forces by S.O.D. in the past and it seemed too perfect to play it that night with Billy Milano on vox. After tracking him down back at his bar, Felix and I convinced him to come sing the song. It went over great with the New Yorker's brand of stand up comedy banter being the icing on the cake."

Make sure to catch MUNICIPAL WASTE on the "WASTE THE WORLD TOUR" when they hit a town near you.
