Michael Jackson? More Like Metal Jackson! [Watch]

Cover songs can be really tasteful or an abject failure in paying tribute to one of a band’s favorite artists. Every now and then some peculiar covers pop up in metal where a band will play something entirely out of their realm. In this case, the band Raintime covers the Michael Jackson hit ‘Beat It.’

Eddie Van Halen played the guitar solo on the original tune, so ‘Beat It’ isn’t so far out of focus, but it’s still unexpected for a metal cover. Raintime go all out here, giving the song’s groovy upbeat feel some distortion with some soaring, gritty vocals. Gang chants dominate the chorus to help add some more metal flavor and it couldn’t be better!
