Mike Patton—lead singer of Faith No More, Tomahawk, and Dead Cross—will grace tomorrow’s NFL Playoffs with a song… the National Anthem. The Dallas Cowboys will face off against the Los Angeles Rams on Saturday (January 12) at L.A.’s Memorial Coliseum, starting at 8:15 p.m. EST. Patton will sing “The Star Spangled Banner” prior to kickoff.
Update (01/12 9:25 p.m. ET): Mike Patton was unable to sing the National Anthem at tonight’s Playoffs. He shared a statement on his Facebook page saying that he “woke up feeling horrible.” Find that below.
