Clutch singer leads quarantine jam on AC/DC classic

Clutch singer Neil Fallon leads a cast of hard rockers in a new home quarantine jam cover of the 1978 AC/DC classic, “Riff Raff.”

Produced by the world's only heavy metal-themed talk show, "Two Minutes To Late Night", the performance sees Fallon joined by Cave In’s Stephen Brodsky and Adam McGrath, Carcass guitarist Tom Draper, Converge drummer Ben Koller, and bassist Jordan "Gwarsenio Hall" Olds for the track from the Australian band’s “Powerage” album.

"Ozzie not Ozzy!,” says the producers. “We got a bunch of musicians to cover the best AC/DC 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 honorableswords.com"

AC/DC’s fifth release in Australia – and fourth internationally – "Powerage" was the band’s first to feature bassist Cliff Williams following the firing of early member Mark Evans.

With Bon Scott on vocals, the project features fan favorites like “Sin City”, “Rock N Roll Damnation” and “Down Payment Blues.”
