Video: Mike Patton Joins Anthrax Members for “Speak Spanish or Die” Cover
Anthrax’s Scott Ian and Charlie Benante have been cranking out covers from their homes while on quarantine, among them a reunion of three-quarters of the original Stormtroopers of Death lineup (with Dan Lilker on bass) for a rousing performance of the band’s 1985 anthem, “Chromatic Death.”
Ian, Benante and Lilker have again teamed up for a Stormtroopers of Death song, and this time they’ve added a very special guest: Faith No More / Mr. Bungle / Fantomas / Tomahawk / etc. frontman and savant Mike Patton, who steps in on vocals for the retired Billy Milano on a reimagined version of the title track from Speak English or Die, the appropriately dubbed “Speak Spanish or Die.”
Patton didn’t get the memo that you’re supposed to record these things with your phone oriented horizontally, but we’ll forgive him this trespass because he nails the song. Watch below! Patton and Ian previously teamed up on the track at the Mr. Bungle reunion shows earlier this year.
