Psychosocialist: The Bernie Sanders/Slipknot Crossover You’ve Been Waiting For

  • Phil Boozeman

A little over a month ago, MetalSucks covered an interview with Corey Taylor, during which the Slipknot frontman endorsed Bernie Sanders and stated that Donald Drumpf made him want to eat his shoes. At the end of the article, we began thinking about some possible ideas for Bernie Sanders versions of Slipknot songs, and MetalSucks reader Mark Hunt’s Cardio came up with this musical formula: Bernie Sanders + Slipknot song = Psychosocialist.

Well, I ran the numbers, and I think you’ll all be pleased that everything computes! So, without further ado, I present “Psychosocialist,” a Bernie Sanders Slipknot cover.

(Original lyrics here, original song below.)


I’m from Vermont and I want out
Presidential race, it doesn’t cut
Congress is not so diverse
The caucuses, the delegates
Sweeping revolution
Wall Street hates this politician
Stop drilling deserts, stop climate change
Then pay for school with all the money we will save
Sleeping in, fuck the republicans
I’m done! It has begun! I’m not the only one!

Donald Drumpf will kill us all…
With Mexico behind a wall
But no one else will be
Legalizing marijuana but me

Bernie Sanders! [x6]

Put a tax on the one percent
But where the houses fell
The bankers have gone mad
This is nothing new, but when we bailed them all
Their stock was all we had
Who needs another Bush?
We could start over
Just look at Jeb and George and say I’m wrong
Now there’s only Hilary
Venomous, insipid
I think she’s dumb. I’m not the only one!


Bernie Sanders! [x6]

The limits of the debt! [x4]

Stop anti-abortion
(Bernie Sanders!)
I tried to tell you but
(Bernie Sanders!)
Planned Parenthood does more than that
(Bernie Sanders!)

Can’t stop a health care idea
(Bernie Sanders!)
If it’s voting season
(Bernie Sanders!)
Is this what you want?
(Bernie Sanders!)
You’re not the only one!

[Chorus x2]

The limits of the debt… [x2]
