watch Mutoid Man, Mrs. Piss and Fucked & Bound members cover Soundgarden’s “4th of July”
Two Minutes to Late Night have continued their quarantine covers series with a seasonally appropriate cover of Soundgarden's classic "4th of July" by Stephen Brodsky (Mutoid Man, Cave In, Old Man Gloom), Jess Gowrie (Mrs. Piss, Chelsea Wolfe, Horseneck), Rah Davis (Fucked and Bound), and your host, Gwarsenio Hall. They write:
We covered the best Soundgarden song about Chris Cornell's favorite Oliver Stone movie. But seriously, The Fourth of July is a flawed holiday. To quote public affairs professor Peniel Joseph, America is "a country that continues to dishonor the sacrifices made by African American soldiers and ordinary citizens who bled for democracy in international conflicts and on domestic home fronts that denied them citizenship and dignity." This is not a day for celebration as long as the police keep murdering black people without facing justice. Luckily, this song is about an acid trip.
This is our twelfth bedroom cover made with the support of Patreon. With so many musicians stuck at home with no outlets, we're going to keep producing these style videos and use the Patreon to give some money to everyone who has a part in them. Please support our friends by donating to our newly redone Patreon.
The original "4th of July" is already pretty close to sludge metal, but this cover takes it all the way there. It's awesome. Watch below.
