CUT LOOSE + MAD DOG.

What these two lack in intelligence, they make up for in a deep passion for beer, ice hockey and all things METAL. In last years Anvil! The Story of Anvil we were introduced to a gruesome twosome by the names of Cut Loose + Mad Dog. As they mention in the clip, their dying devotion to their favorite band went so far that in 1987, Anvil wrote songs dedicated to the two legends, aptly titled ‘Cut Loose’ and ‘Mad Dog’.

These guys are misplaced vikings. They should be storming some medieval battlefield, with shield in one hand and a blade in the other, fighting for freedom. Instead, they’re storming a Canadian dive bar, with a beer in one hand and a beer in the other, fighting for their heavy metal heroes, Anvil.

“I’D RATHER BE A KING BELOW,
THAN A SERVANT ABOVE
I’D RATHER BE FREE AND HATE,
THAN A PRISONER OF LOVE
SIX, SIX, OH SIX…………SIX.”
