The lead vocalist of a metal band that has seen some mainstream success has a certain image to uphold. Like it or not, the typical Ozzfest-type metalhead stereotype (you know the kind I’m talking about) sort of perpetuates and expects the idea of a tough macho guy. That’s why dudes like Zakk Wylde and Jamey Jasta are so popular. They’re tough guys, dammit.

In that regard, I’d like to tip my hat in the direction of Randy Blythe, vocalist of Lamb of God. Late last week, he tweeted the above picture of himself in pink flamboyant makeup a clothing in support of breast cancer awareness, which takes not only a huge heart, but huge balls. While I disagree with his thoughts on djent and subgenres, this is something I can definitely respect. Seriously, he walked for 3 days and raised around $5,000 for the cause. Amazing!

You can read up on his walk and see more pictures by checking out his Twitter page. Good on you, Randy! You’re an inspiration.
