On of our favorite things to come out of the COVID-19 shutdown is Two Minutes to Late Night’s “Bedroom Covers” series, which 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. Highlights have included a Chelsea Wolfe-helmed take on Ozzy’s “Crazy Train,” a Neil Fallon-fronted rendition of AC/DC’s “Riff Raff” and a Sleigh Bells-assisted cover of Guns N’ Roses’ “Rocket Queen.”
The latest entry in the series revisits GN’R but this time as a style through which to rework Bonnie Raitt’s “mom rock” classic “Something to Talk About.” Joining Gwarsenio Hall this time out are PUP drummer Zack Mykula, Masked Intruder guitarist Intruder Green, Kirk Hammett challenger Mrs. Smith, Witch Taint’s La Sinistra and more. Watch below.
“Welcome to the jingle!” Two Minutes wrote in the YouTube description for the video. “We covered a Bonnie Rait karaoke staple in the style of a little mom rock band you might have heard of called Guns ‘n’ Roses! This one is really silly with 66.6% of our participants hiding their beautiful faces. And Angus plays guitar for Cher… Holy shit!
