My Chemical Romance, The Darkness, Quicksand, Etc. Members Cover The Ramones’ “I Believe In Miracles”

Boris Pelekh (Gogol Bordello, Hey Guy) has brought together a group of various musicians to cover the Ramones’ “I Believe In Miracles” to raise money for a GoFundMe page that was launched in support of Partners In Health. In addition to Pelekh, the performance also features: Justin Hawkins (The Darkness), Frank Turner, Walter Schreifels (Quicksand, Gorilla Biscuits, Youth of Today), Eugene Hutz (Gogol Bordello), Tom Higgenson (Plain White T’s, Million Miler), Brett Anderson (The Donnas), Michael Miley (Rival Sons) Frank Iero (My Chemical Romance, Frank Iero and the Future Violents), Roy Mitchell-Cárdenas (MuteMath, Pink Dust), and Nathen Maxwell (Flogging Molly).

Pelekh, whose mother works as a staff nurse at New York Presbyterian/Queens hospital, commented:

“It was roughly around late March 2020 when her hospital became a central hotspot of the pandemic in NYC, and her unit was repurposed for COVID-19 patients.

The situation was growing more and more grim by the day, as I would get reports from her every night. It became very tough for me to simply isolate at home and not try and help somehow. Since I play guitar in a very influential punk-rock band; Gogol Bordello, I decided to grab a bunch of friends from other beloved rock and punk bands to come together virtually, and make a multimedia version of a hopeful and anthemic punk-rock song. I wanted to raise people’s spirits and help fund a charitable organization dealing with COVID-19.

My mom always complained about the lack of PPE in her hospital, so I went out searching for a charitable organization that specifically funded PPE and other medical equipment for healthcare workers. I found the highly reputable Partners In Health who were very closely aligned with my objective and were working on an international level.

I picked one of the most timeless punk bands from Queens; Ramones. Their song ‘I Believe in Miracles’ could not be a better fit. Partners In Health loved the idea and we quickly affiliated to get this video to be a fundraiser for PPE and other medical equipment across the world. With all set in place, the individual band members sent me their parts, and I threw together this multimedia collaboration of Ramones’ ‘I Believe in Miracles.’

#rockforhopeproject’s motto is simple, ‘If you’re not in the position to give, share this video with someone that is.’”
