There are plenty of ways a band can receive an accolaide that shows how much their music means to fans. They can win a Grammy award, fans can have their logos tattooed on their bodies, they can get their own Funko Pops, etc. But in the case for Five Finger Death Punch, the Las Vegas rockers have received their own official holiday in their hometown.

The city of Las Vegas has declared November 1st as "Five Finger Death Punch Day" according to the following proclaimation:

"Whereas, it is the privilege of the Board of County Commissioners to honor and recognize multi-platinum-selling artist and award-winning band Five Finger Death Punch, and their commitment to entertainment, the performing arts and the community; and

Whereas, with an unparalleled music career, Five Finger Death Punch has accumulated 21 consecutive US top-10 hits, eight #1 hits, three gold albums, three platinum albums, and a platinum single, making them the most successful band in the rock genre in terms of album sales; and

Whereas, with more than 3 billion streams, 4.5 million albums, and 10 million digital songs sold worldwide, Five Finger Death Punch is the recipient of countless awards, including the Soldier Appreciation Award from the Association of the United States Army – European Region (only other artist awarded was Elvis Presley); and

Whereas, with their song 'Wrong Side Of Heaven', they raised awareness for veterans suffering from PTSD and more than $225,000 for organizations that support veterans.

Now, therefore, we, the Board of Commissioners of Clark County, Nevada, do hereby recognize Five Finger Death Punch and congratulate them on the success of their career and their two sold-out hometown shows at The Joint at The Hard Rock Hotel and Casino, Las Vegas."
