Video: Members of Mutoid Man, Fucked and Bound, and Mrs. Piss Cover Soundgarden’s “4th of July”
Two Minutes to Late Night host Gwarsenio Hall (aka Jordan Olds) has released another all-star “bedroom cover.” This time, he’s tackled Soundgarden’s “4th of July” alongside Stephen Brodsky (Mutoid Man, Cave In, Old Man Gloom), Jess Gowrie (Mrs. Piss, Chelsea Wolfe, Horseneck), and Rah Davis (Fucked and Bound, Holy Tyrant).
A statement accompanying the video reads:
“We covered the best Soundgarden song about Chris Cornell’s favorite Oliver Stone movie. But seriously, The Fourth of July is a flawed holiday. To quote public affairs professor Peniel Joseph, America is ‘a country that continues to dishonor the sacrifices made by African American soldiers and ordinary citizens who bled for democracy in international conflicts and on domestic home fronts that denied them citizenship and dignity.’ This is not a day for celebration as long as the police keep murdering black people without facing justice. Luckily, this song is about an acid trip.”
