Shane’s Music Challenge: BEATALLICA – 2001 – A Garage Dayz Nite EP

BEATALLICA – 2001 – A Garage Dayz Nite EP

Beatallica - A Garage Dayz Nite EP cover

What could be more unlikely than a band performing Beatles songs and Beatles/Metallica mashups in the Metallica style? Only the fact that Metallica liked it so much that they turn a blind eye to any alleged copyright infringement, and even talked Sony (owners of the Beatles catalogue) into a deal to allow them to continue!

It’s big, dumb, mad, fun and it’s not meant to be anything more or less than that – any hint of taking themselves seriously would render the entire project redundant.

The tunes are mostly from The Beatles, played in ‘Tallica style, with the lyrics mashed up – for instance, headbang along to Sgt Hetfield’s Motorbreath Pub Band, throw horns to The Thing That Should Not Let It Be, thrill to Everybody’s Got A Ticket To Ride Except For Me & My Lightning, and get yer groove on to …And Justice For All My Loving.

There’s nothing cerebral about Beatallica, but they’re damn good fun.

Best tracks: Garage Dayz Nite is a road warrior blast of energy, For Horsemen’s rant about the girlfriend who “takes you to a lame arse poseur Winger concert, fucking forget her!”, and Everybody’s Got A Ticket To Ride Except For Me & My Lightning is an example of how they can take the piss… CLEVERLY!
