Marylin Manson and Rob Zombie have recorded a cover version of The Beatles song “Helter Skelter”.
After the two rockers had already played the song live during their 2012 tour, they decided to go one step further and record the song as well.
Rob Zombie comments:
We had been talking about doing something together for these shows, that he should come onstage during my set and we’d do a song. But we couldn’t think of what song. After we talked, later that night I was home and I just thought, the obvious song is “Helter Skelter”… It’s so obvious that neither one of us thought of it! And then I figured, well, rather than us just doing it onstage, why don’t we take it one step further and record it and put a new spin on it? That way, rather than just doing some impromptu jam together, now the fans will go, “Oh, there’s the song I’ve already heard, and now they’re doing it.”
