Type O Negative mastermind Peter Steele loved the Beatles. It's no wonder he dubbed his crew the Drab Four, a play on the British classic-rock quartet's nickname, the Fab Four. Lennon and McCartney's earworm hooks infuse Type O's romantic doom metal, a core influence that took its most explicit shape in the Brooklyn group's "Day Tripper" medley, a mix of three songs — the title cut, "If I Needed Someone" and "I Want You (She's So Heavy)" — delivered across four cantos to close out 1999's World Coming Down.
Steele and his cohorts — guitarist Kenny Hickey, keyboardist Josh Silver and drummer Johnny Kelly — played said medley live when they hit the stage on Sunday, August 22nd, 1999, at Bizarre Festival in Cologne, Germany. Their set was filmed, broadcasted on German TV and later released as 2006's Sympathy for the Devil DVD — though, likely due to rights issues, the DVD didn't include the medley nor a cover of the Beatles' "Back in the USSR." Fortunately, the internet has saved the former for posterity. Watch above.
