The Chris Jericho–fronted metal band Fozzy premieres the video for its hit single, “Sandpaper,” today on WWE.com. One of the theme songs for WWE Hell in a Cell, “Sandpaper” is the lead single off of the band’s latest album, “Sin and Bones.”
Featuring guest vocals by M. Shadows, the song is impacting and reacting at active rock radio. Directed by Sean McEwen, the “Sandpaper” video is inspired by horror classic “Evil Dead,” with M. Shadows playing the role of Fozzy’s evil puppet master. (WATCH)
“Sin and Bones” was released Aug. 14, landing at No. 1 on the Billboard Heatseekers chart. The release marked the band’s best-selling first week for an album of original material.
Jericho has not been seen on WWE TV since his loss to Dolph Ziggler on Aug. 21. Due to a pre-match stipulation, Jericho’s contract was terminated. Nonetheless, The Ayatollah of Rock 'n' Rolla has kept busy away from the ring. Fozzy also just finished the first U.S. tour of the band’s 12-year career, the Rockstar Energy Drink UPROAR Festival, and later this month, the band will hit the road again on a small headlining run.

In the meantime, “Sandpaper” will be the soundtrack as the WWE Universe counts down the days until the return of Hell in a Cell, live on pay-per-view. (HOW TO WATCH)
Re: Fozzy Premieres Music Video For Hell In A Cell
They just had to go with the worst song on an otherwise alright album (Best Fozzy album imo = All That Remains). If you were going to take something from that album for something like Hell in a Cell, I would've gone with something like Spider In My Mouth.
Also, Jericho's mannerisms are cringe-worthy. And that green-screen I agree, it's a horrendous video.
