Charlie Benante and Ra Diaz Remix Billie Eilish

We don't cover a lot of metal or remixes here at If It's Too Loud..., but how could we possibly ignore this? Charlie Benante of Anthrax has been doing his own quarantine covers series, and this time around he has brought in Ra Diaz of Suicidal Tendencies to do a metal remix of Billie Eilish's impossible to avoid "Bad Guy." My early teenage obsessions with Anthrax and Suicidal Tendencies means I'm going to have to check out anything these two do together, and even I can't pretend I don't love "Bad Guy." And a metal mix of "Bad Guy?" Ridiculously great. Seriously. And Benante doesn't even hide his love of the original. On the YouTube video he posts "Ra and I always Loved this tune and wanted to do a Remix of it. We added some crunch, some funk, some Groove. We like all different forms of music so if Ya Don't like anything, keep it to yourself." The remix ends with a killer breakdown at the end. A song like this throws back to when hip hop acts like House of Pain would release a metal mix of one of their songs. I don't think it will be possible not to love this mix of "Bad Guy."
