Sepultura and Talladega Nights

We saw "Talladega Nights" on Friday and it was a hoot. But, I shocked in one of the final scenes when they used music from Sepultura's "Arise" album. I couldn't believe it. I'm an old school thrasher and underground metal lover. Back in the day, it would have been unheard of to hear something like Slayer or Metallica in a movie, yet alone Sepultura. It put a big smile on my face. I'm wondering if Will Farrell is a metal fan ("Master of Puppets" is played in a scene in another of his movies). Pretty cool to hear some of the music that I moshed to when I was young. Funny thing is that music still sounds great after all of these years.
