Not the hero we want, the HERO WE NEED.

We all know that this could be an extremely difficult weekend for the residents of Florida, as category 4 (nearly category 5) Hurricane Ian has made landfall in the Sunshine State.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to everybody in the state of Florida, and hope that there’s as minimal damage as possible considering the situation, whether you have decided to stay and weather the storm or evacuate.

But speaking of weathering the storm, the unsung hero is BACK.

We’re talking about Lane Pittman, the Jacksonville, Florida native who is notorious for showing up in the middle of a hurricane, shirtless, holding an American flag, long hair flowing as he withstands the insane wind and rain cranking metal music.

You probably know the name, because he’s been doing it since 2016.

We’re talking about the red-haired king who stood outside his home in Neptune, Florida, carrying the American flag and head banging to some death metal while taking on the ferocious winds of Hurricane Matthew five years ago. Lane also took on Hurricane Dorian, Hurricane Laura, Hurricane Irma, and Hurricane Florence.

He also got arrested for shredding the Star Spangled Banner during the Fourth of July, but that’s another story…

He just posted yet another iconic clip of him rising among a sand dune, once again with his legendary locks, headbanging to Pantera’s “Revolution Is My Name,” waving the American flag. Needless to say, Hurricane Ian has been warned.

From Venice, Florida, Pittman shared the pic via Twitter, with a caption that reads:

“WHAT IS MY NAME IAN? WHAT IS MY NAME?! Pantera is back and so am I!! Florida Man is here for you!!!”

Absolute legend.

And of course, a look back at some of Lane’s best work.
