Dead Cross -- the band of Mike Patton (Faith No More, Mr. Bungle, etc), Justin Pearson (The Locust, Retox, etc), Mike Crain (Retox, Cunts, etc), and Dave Lombardo (ex-Slayer) -- have put out their first new music in over two years, a cover of the Black Flag classic "Rise Above," which they say was "created in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement and staunchly opposing police brutality and systemic racism."

The video features footage of police violence against protesters, and it opens with the audio clip of that guy who called into the LA Police Commission's Zoom call and said "Suck my dick and choke on it! I yield my time! Fuck you!" The cover is pretty faithful to the original, just a little harder and more modern-sounding, and it's a treat to hear these four musicians play this song. Watch/listen below.

In related news, Mr. Bungle (Dave Lombardo included) recently put out their first new recording in 21 years, an Exploited cover (for charity).

And in case you missed it, Jezebel interviewed the guy who called into the LA Police Commission's Zoom call:

“Something woke up in me,” he says, of George Floyd’s murder. “I looked at myself and said, ‘How can you just stand by and do nothing?’”

[...] During the six hours that passed before he was called on, Frisch rehearsed close to a hundred times with his mic muted. “I spoke to myself, and I timed myself, ‘cause I knew I had to make it count. I had to make every second count.” Everything except the “fuck you” was planned, and his notorious line, “I yield my time,” was the brainchild of a debate class where he learned about the term, and earlier callers who’d conceded their minutes the same way. “I was like, oh, yeah! I learned that from my debate class,” he says. The commission also declined to comment once Frisch finished. “But I could tell on their faces that they heard what I had to say. I saw Michel Moore’s body language. He heard what I had to say.”
