THE MUNSTERS MASH, PART II: WHITE PIGS
MetalSucks is celebrating the season of the witch with the Munster Mash, a weekly spotlight on metal covers of the Munsters theme. During the thrash/crossover era, every band and their moms busted it out at some point, either as a live staple or a hidden track.
This week’s entry, by White Pigs, is one of the earlier versions. The band formed in Connecticut in 1980, and thrashed it up over the next decade. Eventually, they signed to Combat, which released discs by Agnostic Front, the Circle Jerks, Megadeth, and Dark Angel. Learn more about the band at the Punk Vault.
The sound quality is lo-fi punk, topped with squealing metal guitar cheese, all to awesome effect. Click the pic above to listen, or just listen below:
