GWAR’s Oderus Urungus Joins Cancer Bats Onstage for Cover of Beastie Boys’ ‘Sabotage’
It still doesn’t seem real that Beastie Boys member Adam ‘MCA’ Yauch passed away earlier this year. As a part of one of modern music’s most definitive group, the man was an innovator of the highest order. There has been countless tributes paid to MCA since his death, and the latest homage was delivered with style by GWAR front-thing Oderus Urungus and current tourmates Cancer Bats, as they came together for a performance of the Beastie Boys classic ‘Sabotage.’
GWAR and Cancer Bats are currently on the road with Devildriver and Legacy of Disorder on the ‘Fate or Chaos’ tour. We were lucky enough to see the tour ourselves in New York, along with scoring a video interview with Oderus Urungus in the flesh. Tonight (Nov. 26), the ‘Fate or Chaos’ tour comes to an end in Millvale, Pa., but on Nov. 24 in Toronto, Oderus Urungus made a special appearance during Cancer Bats’ set to perform ‘Sabotage,’ a song the band has been performing throughout the string of dates.
Along with a solid showing by the members of Cancer Bats, the voice of Oderus Urungus fit the song perfectly has he projected his trademark slimy yell. Believe us when we say the cover deserves an A+. Additionally, Sum 41 have been performing part of ‘Sabotage’ during their ‘Does This Look Infected?’ 10th Anniversary tour, which also deserves a mention due to its awesomeness.
Check out both memorial covers of ‘Sabotage’ in the videos below.
