Listen: Avenged Sevenfold Cover Mr. Bungle’s “Retrovertigo”


So remember how Avenged Sevenfold’s latest album, The Stage, is now meant to be an ever-evolving work with new tracks being added from time to time? Well, the latest track to be added is a cover of “Retrovertigo,” a song from Mr. Bungle’s 1999 album, California.

A7X haven’t really made changes to the track, rendering this cover basically pointless. Still, if it gets five or ten Hot Topic kids to check out Mr. Bungle, I’m all for it. Also, as much as I love Mike Patton, I’m sure he loathes Avenged Sevenfold, and it’s kinda funny to think about irritated this cover must make him.

ANYWAY, here’s the original if you’ve somehow never heard it…

…and here’s Avenged Sevenfold’s version:
