Watch Slipknot, Royal Thunder and More Members’ Badass Cover of Bruce Springsteen’s “Candy’s Room”

Published on:

Two Minutes to Late Night’s “Bedroom Covers” series has been one of the best things to come out of the COVID-19 shutdown. The series sees Gwarsenio Hall — a.k.a. Two Minutes’ corpse-paint-slathered master of ceremonies, also a.k.a. Jordan Olds, the un-corpse-painted host of The Pit’s own talk show Last Words — assembling all-star ensembles of quarantined musicians to take on classic rock and metal songs.

The latest crushing clip released yesterday on Father’s Day (June 21st) features Slipknot madman Jay Weinberg paying tribute to his father Max Weinberg, longtime drummer of Bruce Springsteen‘s E Street Band with a raucous cover of The Boss’ “Candy Room.” Check it out below (and “Jay shot his own footage from three angles because he rules.”)

Joining Weinberg on this edition is booming, soul-stunning Royal Thunder vocalist Mlny Parsonz, High on Fire bassist Jeff Matz, Cave In and Mutoid Man guitarist Stephen Brodsky and Shearwater keyboardist Emily Lee.

The Two Minutes to Late Night camp was feeling very New Jersey and commented: “Pork roll, egg, and cheese! We helped Slipknot drummer Jay Weinberg make a father’s day gift for his dad (Bruce Springsteen‘s drummer and comedy legend Max Weinberg!!!) but frankly, this gift is for everyone. So grab a denim jacket, wear a face mask, and stay out of those BADLANDS!
