Andrew W.K. – “I Love The Dead” (Alice Cooper Cover)
Martin Scorsese, Mick Jagger, and Terrence Winter’s new HBO show Vinyl is not very good, but at least it’s producing some fun covers. Like other music industry dramas Empire and Nashville, the series is releasing a new batch of music every week — in this case, an EP’s worth of today’s artists performing songs from 1973, the year the series is set. We already heard Neko Case’s take on “Danny’s Song,” and now another four songs from Vinyl’s forthcoming third episode have made their way online, headlined by Andrew W.K. doing Alice Cooper’s “I Love The Dead.” Check it out below along with tunes by Nate Ruess (covering the Raspberries), Milk Carton Kids (covering England Dan and John Ford Coley), and Vinyl’s fictional punk band Nasty Bits (covering Rocket From The Tombs).
You can purchase all these songs at iTunes via Atlantic Records.
