Charlie Benante (Anthrax), Dave Baksh (Sum 41), Tom Thacker (Sum 41), Danko Jones, and Jean Genus (Hank Von Hell, etc.) have joined forces for a quarantine medley of Mötorhead‘s “Overkill,“ Judas Priest‘s “Electric Eye,” and Iron Maiden‘s “Murders In The Rue Morgue.“ You can check that out below:

All of the musicians commented:

Dave Baksh:

“As a 1980 baby my first exposure to metal was the big four, my love for their music made me want to learn more about where they came from. Who were the innovators for them? Who moved an entire genre forward for their generation? This question lead me to the term “New Wave Of British Heavy Metal.” A genre within a genre so powerful that its music still inspires to this day.

From artists, skaters and even the Rainbow’s video poker machine so many have had their lives touched by Motörhead, Judas Priest and Iron Maiden. We chose these songs in our medley as a tribute to all the bands that are part of the infamous N.W.O.B.H.M. Our lineup for this one was something that I could only have dreamed of. Thank you, Tom, Jean, Danko, Charlie and please send love from our family to yours.”

Charlie Benante:

“When Dave asked me to be a part of a Medley featuring Mötorhead, Judas Priest and Iron Maiden how could I say no? Then he told me Danko, Tom and Jean would be a part of it! That added a whole other dimension to it. This was fun and it really takes me back to a time when Heavy Metal was great.”

Danko Jones:

“‘Overkill‘ by Mötorhead is probably the most perfect rock song ever written. Lyrically, it keeps with its title, ending thrice! It also contains the drumbeat that laid the foundation for an entire genre of music.

‘Electric Eye‘ is the clarion call for one of the greatest Priest albums in their canon.

‘Murders In The Rue Morgue‘ is one of the best songs of the Di’ Anno era.

Although I have a million miles to go chasing the three legends who sang these songs, I am grateful to be given a chance. Being able to sing alongside these fine gentlemen was an honor.”

Tom Thacker:

“What an honor to rock this metal medley with these very talented dudes whose bands I love and respect! And Dave Brownsound, my bro-in-sound! So stoked to be a part of this!

Iron Maiden was one of my first musical loves and remain a favorite to this day. The first record I heard was Number of the beast. I listened on repeat until the tape wore out. It seemed much more substantial than a lot of the other bands, theatrical, literary, it was like a school course that fucking rocked. So much more than just killer riffs. But the riffs were enough for me!!

Electric eye is my favorite Judas Priest song. Halford’s voice sounds so sinister. It is the ultimate metal voice. And the Priest twin guitar attack… devastating. Like two tornadoes colliding.

There is no band more badass than Motörhead. They scared the shit out of me as a kid. The riff for Overkill has so much raw power just playing it will lay waste to an army of posers”

Jean Genus:

“Motörhead, Priest, Maiden… If there are any bands that have changed the rock world, it is probably these. In their completely own ways.

The first stadium show I ever went to was an Iron Maiden show. Just a little kid in a stadium with 75.000 people. I think that was one of those moments you think to yourself.. I wanna do that!

And as a bassist…what can I Say Steve Harris, Ian Hill & Lemmy. Three fine British Gentlemens👌”

Anthrax, Volbeat, & Suicidal Tendencies Members Join Forces With D.M.C. For RUN-D.M.C. Medley

Charlie Benante (Anthrax), Rob Caggiano (Volbeat, ex-Anthrax) and Roberto “Ra” Diaz (Suicidal Tendencies) recently joined forces with Darryl “D.M.C.” McDaniels for a RUN-D.M.C. medley. You can see footage of that below. The track is also available to download via Bandcamp with proceeds set to go towards MusicUnites.org.

Benante commented:

“I always wanted to do a medley of RUN DMC songs, so back in March I decided to put an arrangement together and asked these amazing people to be a part of it.

How can you do a RUN DMC medley without the KING of ROCK- Darryl McDaniels DMC. I have been a RUN DMC fan from back when I first heard “It’s Like That/Sucker MCs” they had my attention immediately! It’s no secret that our “I’m the Man” song was inspired by RUN DMC and the Beastie boys…that’s how much we loved them.

I asked RA once again because he has the groove and creativity to adapt to any song. I love how he placed a familiar line at the end of the song that Just fit so well. I asked Rob Caggiano because I always loved his style.

I love the way he attacks his guitar and plays the tastiest shit. He throws this great Black metal riff in here that raises the tune to another level. We all came together to create this piece of music that makes US move.

I hope it YOU move! Maybe it inspires you to make music, play your instrument, write lyrics…”
