Soooo, now you’re gonna be held up inside for a while with some disposable income (if you’re lucky), the next question is “what can you throw some dollar
bills coins away on?” Clothing is out because no one wants to be all dressed up with nowhere to go (unless it’s band merch, buy that shit now) and who needs food anyway!? Why not get your mate (or yourself, no judgement here) a very special musician message via Cameo?
What’s Cameo you might be asking? Well, essentially you pay celebs, musicians and to a lesser extent, reality tv stars to give personal shout outs for cash. They make money to support themselves during this difficult time, you get something to laugh at or love forever and boom, win/win for everyone!
So if you’re keen/inquisitive, here’s our list of The Top 20 Heavy Musician Cameos For Under $100
#20 – Mark Heylmun of Suicide Silence – $9
Love Suicide Silence or know someone who hated their self-titled album? Why not get guitarist Mark Heylmun to do a very special video explaining it all from his perspective for the low low price of $9. Treat yourself because you only live once!
#19 – Scott Eckel of Five North/Makeout – $17
Want to be known as someone who got a cameo from one of Australia’s fasted upcoming drumming exports? Then hit up MAKEOUT/Five North drummer Scott Eckel for a shout out. He’s toured with blink-182 and played on Travis Barker‘s drumkit. Ask him about that or how they got kicked out of their Airbnb for filming the below mentioned music video
#18 – Carla Harvey of Butcher Babies – $60
For a limited time only Carla has offered her face up for fans to request a video so you can ask for advice about singing or what Scotty From Marketing got wrong during his press conferences because she also doubles as a grief coach!
#17 – Vincent Bennett of The Acacia Strain – $12
If you, like me, are wondering why The Acacia Strain are releasing EPs instead of albums, hit up Vincent on cameo for $12 and get the answer from the man himself… you’d also be stupid to not ask for a guttural greeting!
#16 – Joe Bad of Fit For An Autopsy – $43
Joe is doing shout outs for anyone… Including people you don’t like! Say fuck you in style with the frontman of one of deathcore’s finest bands!
#15 – Chris Demakes of Less Than Jake – $86
Maybe you’re nuts about ska and wanna learn how to skank from one of the best in the business! Chris from Less Than Jake is up for greetings for 86 of your finest dollars and the video will last you for the rest of your life…
#14 – Sonny Sandoval of P.O.D. – $36
Know someone who’s a matrix nut and loved a bit of nu-metal too? Kill two birds with one stone hitting up Sonny from P.O.D. for a shout out!
#13 – Tyler Carter of Issues – $52
Need help with your own issues? Like how to get your hair to stay purple for longer? Then Tyler from Issues if your man!
#12 – Kellin Quinn of Sleeping With Sirens – $69
Wanna live like a King for a Day? Of course you do! Then ask Kellin what you need to do in order to live like him on the set of Pierce The Veil‘s music video for that exact song. I was gonna use a SWS song but this gag worked better…
#11 – Dan O’Connor of Four Year Strong – $43
Maybe you’re more of a pop punk kid and FYS are your be-all and end-all. Hit up Dan O’Connor for some tips on how to pop punk jump like a pro OR how to grow a beautiful luscious beard like his. Fun Fact: His beard was the inspiration for why I first grew mine ten years ago!
#10 – Eric Vanlerberghe of I Prevail – $86
If you’d like to know what happens at the Grammy Awards (because you’ll never ever go) then why not get Eric to tell you all about his band’s experience when they went earlier in the year!
#9 – David Ellefson of Megadeth – $43
Want Megadeth‘s Dave Mustaine but can’t get him on Cameo? Go for his side man David Ellefson instead!
#8 – David Silveria of KoRn – $52
Speaking of Davids, the Korn drummer has offered up his time for you and that’s pretty bloody good if you ask me! Nostalgia overload guaranteed.
#7 – Joel Birch of The Amity Affliction – $34
Will a special shout out from TAA frontman Joel Birch help you get through your day? You know it will! Hit him up for yourself or a mate in need and shine some light in their life… or ask him how to scream like he did in ‘All My Friends Are Dead’
#6 – Mike Portnoy (Prog Icon) – $86
Where do you even start with this prog icon? Maybe kick it off with a shout out for a Dream Theater fan then ask him about his appearances in Sons Of Apollo, The Winery Dogs, Flying Colors, Neal Morse Band, Metal Allegiance, Transatlantic, Dream Theater, Twisted Sister, Avenged Sevenfold, AMOB, LTE, PSMS…
#5 – Matthew Heafy of Trivium – $86
There is so much going on in Matt’s life it’s hard to keep up. Frontman for one of the best metal bands getting about right now. He’s also a dad, mad gamer and streamer. Why not pick his brain over a cameo?
#4 – Joey Belladonna of Anthrax – $69
Now that Slayer have called it quits, you can get your thrash metal fix from Anthrax frontman Joey Belladonna for just $69. Go on, you wouldn’t!
#3 – Keith Buckley of Every Time I Die/The Damned Things – $43
As if you wouldn’t want to get a special video from one of the sexiest men in heavy music (straight guys can attest to this too). Mr Buckley just joined recently so hit him up for a whole bunch of Shinfo to get you through your self-isolation
#2 – Fronz of Attila – $46
Ok, want one of the loosest most insane cameo videos you can ever think of? Go no further than Chris Fronzak aka The Fronz himself and you know you’re gonna get more than your money’s worth with this unit. Fuck it, buy two!
#1 – Sawbord Destroyer of Gwar – $69
When was the last time you received a message from an actual monster? The answer to that was probably never so change it and get some Gwar in your life via cameo. Who knows it could change your life… it probably won’t but fuck it’d be a new experience!
