Listen: Chad Gray (Mudvayne, Hellyeah) Covers Beck’s “Loser” With Violent Idols
Mudvayne/Hellyeah vocalist Chad Gray has teamed up with Violent Idols for a new cover of Beck’s iconic ’90s hit, “Loser.”
I’ll say this for the track: Gray definitely made it is his own. No one will ever mistake this for the original.
Unfortunately, “his own,” in this case, is very much a late-’90s/MTV’s Return of the Rock-era nu-metal song. In other words, Scientology is no longer the most annoying thing about Beck.
Says Gray of the recording:
“Hey Metal Kidz so here we go again. I hooked up with my friends in Violent Idols to do a cover of ‘Loser’ by Beck. This thing was so much fun. We have a little tempo and a little teeth and I’m super happy with it. Just one more track in my solo side shitz. I hope that you all enjoy! I can’t wait to see you back on stage sooner than later. Don’t take this too seriously as I didn’t. Just having some fun with good friends for good people! Stay Metal AF! And enjoy.”
