Two Minutes to Late Night have been going above and beyond to keep us entertained amid the chaos and unrest of our crazy times. Their continuing "Bedroom Covers" series, which sees Jordan Olds, a.k.a. Two Minutes' corpse-painted master of ceremonies Gwarsenio Hall, enlisting various heavy hitters for one-time supergroups to take on classic rock and metal cuts, is one of the few things keeping us going right now. Fresh off their Chelsea Wolfe-helmed take on Ozzy's "Crazy Train," their Neil Fallon-fronted rendition of AC/DC's "Riff Raff" and their awesome take on Guns N' Roses' "Rocket Queen" helmed by Sleigh Bells singer Alexis Krauss, the metal comedy miscreants are back with a killer quarantine performance of Kate Bush's "Running Up That Hill," the Eighties single recently re-popularized by singer Meg Myers. Two Minutes' all-star rendition features Emma Ruth Rundle (Marriages, Red Sparowes, the Nocturnes), Bill Kelliher (Mastodon), Aaron Rieseberg (YOB), Santos Montano (Old Man Gloom) and, of course, Olds himself. Watch above.
"Hello friends, we decided to release this video on schedule even though our country is in turmoil because we wanted to honor the hard work of our guest musicians and to give our fans a respite from the horrors of the fascist police state," Two Minutes offered in the description to the YouTube video. "In lieu of donating to our Patreon, we ask you to consider making a donation to the protestor bail funds for your local city (we've listed some of the major ones below). Please take a moment to acknowledge our many friends who cannot enjoy any kind of video right now. Black Lives Matter. Rest in power George Floyd and the many other victims of systemic oppression.
"This is our eighth bedroom cover made with the support of Patreon. If you'd like to see more videos or learn more about Two Minutes to Late Night go to www.honorablesword.com."
In addition to "Crazy Train" and "Riff Raff," the new "Rocket Queen" cover follows up Two Minutes' recently released all-star takes on Steely Dan's "Reelin' in the Years" and Weird Al's Devo parody "Dare to be Stupid." Look out for more bedroom covers to come.
