You NEED This Metal Cover Of Weird Al’s “Dare To Be Stupid”

Heavy metal talk show ‘Two Minutes To Late Night’ recruits their metal friends for bedroom cover songs.

Two Minutes To Late Night is a heavy metal talk show filmed at the famed Saint Vitus bar in Brooklyn, New York. That, like everything else social and fun, is canceled until further notice because social distancing. But it’s almost as they predicted the near future! They explain,

Twinkie Weiner Sandwiches! We got a bunch of musicians to cover our favorite Weird Al song from the comfort of their own bedrooms (and Ben’s practice space.) We started filming parts of this song in January with plans and demos laid out for a series of bedrooms covers to come; completely unaware of the oncoming pandemic. Now, with so many musicians stuck at home with no outlets, we’re going to keep producing these style videos and use the Patreon to give some money to everyone who has a part in them. Please support our friends by donating to our newly redone Patreon at www.honorableswords.com.

Without further ado… enjoy the 2M2LN cast collaborating with members of Converge, Cave In, Khemmis, Thou, and more. Heads up for some NSFW ad-libs towards the end of the song. While Weird Al always keeps it clean, the metal community plays by its own rules.

The original version of “Dare To Be Stupid” was the title-track from Weird Al Yankovic’s third album. While Al’s track is an original composition and not technically a parody of an existing song, the entire vibe is very much borrowed from Devo who had kind of a moment in the early 80’s.

And props to Brooklyn Vegan where I found this video. If you’re looking to discover killer new metal, they post weekly listicles of fresh releases.
