Members of Mastodon, Limp Bizkit, The Used, 311, Filter, Veruca Salt and In Flames have come together for an epic rendition of “Mountain Song” by Jane’s Addiction.
The cover is part of Slaves of Dope’s Jason Rockman and Kevin Jardine’s lockdown project, The Kings of Quarantine. The mega all-star line-up also comprised Bill Kelliher (of Mastodon), Wes Borland (Limp Bizkit) and P-Nut (311), with In Flames drummer Tanner Wayne behind the kit. Meanwhile, Richard Patrick of Filter, Veruca Salt’s Louise Post and Bert McCracken of The Used contributed the vocals.
Although the musicians recorded their parts separately in quarantine, they still managed to deliver a fiery rendition of the 1988 classic. Their cover of “Mountain Song” was released in partnership with Roadie Relief effort, an initiative that helps workers in the touring industry whose jobs have been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. The song is also available for download via Bandcamp.
Rockman and Jardine kickstarted The Kings of Quarantine in October last year, releasing a cover of Faith No More’s “We Care a Lot.” That song also featured contributions from other metal heavyweights including members of Anthrax, Korn, Quicksand, Brutal Truth and more.
