Ok, look, we’ll be honest: We usually try to not write about the same thing over and over, because there’s a lot of great music and content out there and we try to spread our love around. But we keep coming back to Two Minutes To Late Night‘s ongoing cover series, because it keeps delivering the goods — and it’s for a good cause.
The latest in the heavy metal-themed talk show’s collaborative series — following brilliant renditions of Danzig’s “Snakes of Christ” and Ozzy Osbourne’s “Crazy Train”, among others — is a stab at Guns N’ Roses’ infamous Appetite For Destruction closer “Rocket Queen.” It’s not only one of the greatest songs ever written, but also features maybe the greatest mid-song transition of all time. It’s quite the favorite of us here at Vanyaland.
“Sweet content o’ mine! We got some of our favorite musicians to cover the best Guns N’ Roses song about space travelin’ royalty from the comfort of their own bedrooms,” writes Two Minutes To Late Night. “This is our seventh bedroom cover (!!!) made with the support of Patreon. 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.”
