3Teeth Unveil Industrialized Cover of Foster the People’s “Pumped Up Kicks”


Foster the People’s “Pumped Up Kicks,” a deceptively poppy ditty that ruled the charts in the early ’00s, is about a kid getting ready to shoot up his school. Fitting, then, that industrial revivalists 3Teeth have taken on the song as a cover nearly a decade later given the complete lack of progress on that issue in the time since (if anything, it’s gotten even worse). 3Teeth’s version is decidedly grittier, and the accompanying video puts the song’s subject matter into an appropriately dark perspective.

Check it out below. Metawar comes out on July 5th via Century Media; pre-order here and listen to album tracks “Affluenza,” “Exxxit” and “American Landfill.”
