For those feeling empty now that Soundwave headliners Slipknot have left the country, these sock puppets are here to save the day and they’re soundtracking your heartbreak with this parody cover of Slipknot’s Wait and Bleed, reimagined as Wait and Bleach.
The raggedy band, who for the purpose of this cover go by Socknot, took cues from the heavy Grammy-nominated track, which appears on Slipknot’s self-titled 1999 debut album, repurposing its pain and anger to tell the story of a lowly sock facing its mortality after it has been turned into a rag.
Per a press release, via Loudwire, “When socks are used as rags, they’re liable to go insane. These socks have reached their tearing point. Now they’ve snapped and formed the ultimate garage band, SOCKNOT!
“The band is made up of misfit socks that have been all but used up. Frayed by the constant abuse, they have channeled that insanity into their hit single, Wait And Bleach. This mosh pit of insanity hits you like a washboard and doesn’t let up.”
Other sock puppet covers include, of course, Metallica’s Master of Puppets, Slayer’s Raining Blood, Radiohead’s Creep, Nirvana’s Smells Like Teen Spirit, Static X’s Push It and Rage Against The Machine’s Killing In The Name.
