Can you cover Michael Jackson and get away with it? The Stone Roses' Ian Brown did a few times, Alien Ant Farm (unfortunately) built a (thankfully short-lived) career out of it, and we won't even get into Glee. This week we can add Boston's BAD RABBITS to the list, and maybe move them to the top of it with the latest video/download in their online covers series (we posted their Deftones cover of "Sextape" last month).
Here they do the King of Pop proud with their rendition of "Human Nature," the 1983 single off Thriller. Download it off Bad Rabbits' tumblr, and check them out Saturday at the Middle East in Cambridge with Ninjasonik, Moe Pope and Jasmine Solano. Get there early, kids, they'll be spilling out onto Mass Ave for this one. Mid East just tweeted: It's already sold out.
Here's the word on "Human Nature" from BR HQ:
This is the second song we chose for our live covers series. We chose this song because Michael Jackson was and always will be a huge inspiration to us. Song filmed/edited by our homie Ricky Gonzalez contact: @trickygonzalez and mixed/mastered by our homie Ryan John. Enjoy!
