The metal song in the ESPN SportsCenter Commercial with John Clayton 2012

At first I thought it might be a Slayer song since he is wearing their T-Shirt. After some research though I am more and more convinced that it is just a short metal guitar riff created for the commercial, and it is very possible that it was done by Zakk Wylde (formerly Ozzy Osbourne's guitarist), since he is known to have made several "jingles" for ESPN's use.

I have got to give it to ESPN though for having so many funny commercials, and they are all so well done, this one is no exception. If I didn't know that the people in them were sports casters and sometimes athletes, I would think that they were actually actors. They all seem just as good as the straight faced humor as the cast of The Office.

P.S. I don't think I will be able to watch John Clayton's segment the same way again.
