I post this on Twitter every now and then, but I don’t think I’ve ever shared it here. You might be familiar with the song, especially if you used to listen to the old Radio 1 rock shows.

It’s probably the best live performance of anything ever. God damn, could they perform. Listen for the riff, but watch the whole thing. It builds tremendously.

I've been obsessed with that song since hearing it on the excellent Baby Driver soundtrack, its just superb.

Antichrist Superstar - Marilyn Manson
Badmotorfinger - Soundgarden
Facelift - Alice in Chains
Core - Stone Temple Pilots
Lateralus - Tool
Audioslave - Audioslave
Welcome to Sky Valley - Kyuss

Fairly apt given the current situation in the US. Actually the whole album is.

Listen to the riff at 1:10 and tell me that doesn't give you a boner

Haven't played that game since it came out but I still remember this amazing track

Looks like he’s done loads of others. This one starts with “Bruce” doing Cyndi Lauper and Michael Jackson.

Not sure about the Audioslave one, Chris Cornell's voice is far better suited to that song.

His cover of Bruce Dickinson's Soul Intruders is my favourite. Can Iron Maiden just hire this guy already?
