The Victorian teen who won the nation’s heart after cracking an egg into the skull of conservative political shitstain Fraser Anning is being hailed a hero by musicians worldwide.
Not only has 17-year-old Will Connolly, known affectionately as “Egg Boy”, been inundated with offers of free gig entry for life from the likes of Hilltop Hoops, Violent Soho and The Living End, he’s also drawn praise from international stars including ‘Teenage Dirtbag’ hitmakers Wheatus and Canadian singer-songwriter Goody Grace:
Egg Boy, you have free entry to any Hoods show for life should you wish.

The Amity Affliction’s Joel Birch even threw a +1 on the table for Egg Boy:
If Egg Boy likes Amity he can have free entry +1 to all of our shows forever.

While Destroy All Lines boss Chris O’Brien has offered him free entry to all future DAL shows, which will be great news if Egg Boy is a fan of DevilDriver and All That Remains.

ICYMI the new Young Australian Of The Year nominee smashed Anning about his thick dome with a raw egg in the middle of a press conference on Saturday, after the controversial Brisbane Senator appeared to blame the horrific Christchurch terrorist attack, which has so far claimed the lives of 50 innocent people, on the victims.
Anning was filmed punching Connolly twice in retaliation, before the teen was wrestled to the ground by his cronies.
Connolly was then arrested but has since been released without charge.
Egg Boy, we salute you.
