Vinnie originally came up with the idea for ‘333’. A lot of people may think Vinnie was just a drummer, but he was much more than just a badass, slamming, smashing drummer. He understood production and composition and he was very much a contributor to the writing process.

This song was his baby; it belonged to and came from him. Unfortunately, by the time I was ready to actually write the lyrics, it was after Vinnie had passed. The lyrics embrace and recognize the feelings that most metal fans have. Being treated like outcasts and being judged for the way we look or dress. It’s a reminder to all the metal fans that no matter what, you will always have a place in our worldwide metal community. With that said…Welcome to the family! We’re all the root of half evil reppin’ 333!”

I love 333 and what it represents — being half evil. It was a part of Dime (Darrell Abbott) and (brother) Vinnie before HELLYEAH was formed and very much became a part of HELLYEAH as we carried the torch for Dimebag. They were both so accepting of me and many others, and they taught us to treat people with respect, dignity and humility.”

Original Story:

The first single from HELLYEAH‘s forthcoming studio album has been made available below. The song is titled “333” and the video was filmed in Brooklyn, NY earlier this month. It is taken from the band’s forthcoming new album which will be out in June 28th. That effort will feature the final studio recordings of the group’s late drummer Vinnie Paul Abbott, who passed away last June. Fans of the Abbott brothers should no doubt be familiar with the title, aka ‘Dime Time’.
