The Kings of Quarantine, "We Care a Lot"
An all-star rock crew (including members of Slaves on Dope, Anthrax, Korn, Mastodon, Filter, Men Without Hats, Run-DMC and Our Lady Peace) collaborates remotely on this raucous Faith No More cover to benefit Roadie Relief. (Purchase it here to make a bigger impact.) "It's a dirty job but someone's gotta do it," goes the refrain, and it's good to see this crew returning to the task of making big, crunchy rock. Watch all the way through for a special message from Faith No More bassist Billy Gould.
