Video: Sixteen-Year-Old Mike Patton and Trevor Dunn Cover Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, Mötley Crüe

  • Axl Rosenberg

Remember that great footage of an adolescent Mr. Bungle (as “Bister Mungle”) performing at their high school talent show? Well, now a reader has sent us even more footage of Mike Patton and Trevor Dunn performing at age sixteen, with their then-band, Gemini, at Eureka High’s talent night in 1984.  It’s pretty much as precious as you’d think: Patton is dressed like Rob Halford by way of Nikki Sixx, and the band has some choreographed stage moves and everything (which is okay, because they were sixteen and aping Judas Priest, not twenty-six and seriously suggesting that we should take this shit seriously).

Below, watch Mike Patton, Trevor Dunn, and Gemini cover Maiden, Priest, Mötley Crüe, Kiss, Quiet Riot, and more… I hope it brings you as much joy as it did I:

Thanks: Tom L.
