This post is part of my 3 week series that explores previous examples of blending of bluegrass and metal music.
I will be back in action June 13.
Apparently, turning metal songs into bluegrass covers is even more popular than we thought. There exists yet another group that does this with expert ease, Hayseed Dixie.
Here they are covering an old Motörhead song, and doing it well!
Last but not least, we have the well named group Unclefucker. This was quite the find, in fact I’m still giddy about it. For once, we have a metal cover of a bluegrass song, and it’s amazing.
Remember “Man of Constant Sorrow” from Oh Brother, Where Art though. Yeah, this is way better.
So awesome… Sadly this band isn’t around anymore, but they might’ve been the best integration of extreme music and bluegrass to date.
So there you have it, the most complete investigation of prior art that I could muster. The bar is set pretty high, but I think I’m up to the challenge!
