Track of the Day: 'Rock Lobster'

Reader Jason adds a few hardcore covers to the series: So I’m thinking this one may be a little too “much” for your average reader of The Atlantic (but who knows!), but any time someone brings up crazy cover songs, I have to give an honorable mention to a couple tracks from seminal mathcore/hardcore/whatever-the-hellcore band Botch. I’m sure most people are at least passingly familiar with “Rock Lobster” by the B-52s, and “O Fortuna,” from the opera Carmina Burana by Carl Orff. Botch gave them both their own special treatment, and I honestly think they both work extremely well as metal songs. “O Fortuna” especially lends itself well to the genre, and I would totally be down to see a full conversion of the opera done in this style (then again, I may just be nuts).
