Celebrate Election Day with an Alice Cooper Cover by Iron Maiden’s Bruce Dickinson and… Mr. Bean?!
“Remember the time that Iron Maiden frontman Bruce Dickinson teamed up with Mr. Bean?” asks Metal Injection in their post accompanying this video. And, well… no! No, I absolutely do not remember this video, which was made the charity Comic Relief’s then-annual HBO special in 1992. But I’m delighted to have seen it now!
Not that it’s perfect or anything. For one thing, I much prefer Alice Cooper’s original “Elected” (or even the version he did with Slash and Rob Zombie circa ’97). For another, I could never in good conscience back Mr. Bean’s non-beard platform. I mean, just ask me to outlaw breathing while you’re at it.
P.S. If you’re in the U.S., don’t forget to go vote today, preferably in a manner which would upset Dave Mustaine, Ted Nugent, and Gene Simmons.
