5 Minutes Alone (with Vader)



Star Wars (1995 "Faces" VHS).


The Best of Pantera: Far Beyond the Great Southern Cowboys' Vulgar Hits! Some title, huh? The CD itself is pretty long, too; at seventy-eight minutes, it's got more ass-ripping stomp metal than you can shake a bong at. Did I mention the damn thing also comes with a DVD showcasing twelve videos? Sheesh. You sure can't accuse Pantera of being chinzy.


- The Star Wars logo appears at the same exact moment the drums and bass kick in in "Cowboys from Hell."

- The phrase "spread the word" is heard in "Cowboys from Hell" during the opening crawl.

- The Rebel soldiers are seen awaiting the Imperial invasion as the line "here we come, reach for your gun" is heard in "Cowboys from Hell."

- The stormtroopers bust through the Tantive IV door as the line "step aside, we're the cowboys from hell" is heard in "Cowboys from Hell."

- The first really heavy part of "Cemetery Gates" starts as Darth Vader crushes the Rebel soldier's neck and throws him against the wall.

- Luke is seen lying unconscious on the ground as the line "you're broken" is heard in "Broken."


"Planet Caravan" almost started the moment Luke spied his dead relatives. It was about ten seconds off, I think. That's definitely the perfect song to have playing in the background the first time you stumble upon the blackened corpses of the people who used to cook all your meals and do your laundry for you. Well, that or something by Gravediggaz.
