HELLYEAH is the new band featuring members of MUDVAYNE, PANTERA and NOTHINGFACE HELLYEAH recently released the video for the group's third single, "Thank You" a tribute to fallen heroes that's driven by a marching beat, delicate arpeggios and an unforgettable chorus. The video contains personal photos of people the band has known, loved and wish to honor with a special song and video tribute. Included are never-before-seen photos of HELLYEAH drummer Vinnie Paul's brother Darrell "Dimebag" Abbott, a special thank you to lead singer Chad Gray's late grandmother Betty Rau and a tribute to soldiers the band has known who have lost their lives during the conflict in Iraq. "It's a very emotional track for anyone who's been through a crazy loss," Chad said in a March 2007 feature in Revolver. "Dime was brutally murdered. I watched my grandmother, who was this thriving, full-of-life soul, get whittled down to nothing because of cancer. I just felt we owed a big thank you to all of them." "It was very powerful," says Vinnie of the first time he heard the completed song. "It made me think of how much my brother had done for me, and how much we had done together, and how much I miss him and how important it is for me and everyone to know we love him and appreciate him."
