Denzel Curry Covers “Bulls on Parade” for Australian Radio
Florida man bravely steps into ring with Rage Against the Machine staple.
Finally, rap and rock music have converged! Last night, Australian broadcasting service triple j shared a video of Florida rapper Denzel Curry throwing down on a Rage Against the Machine cover for their Like a Version series, complete with a full band and, uh, rage. The homage may come as no surprise to anyone who heard last year’s TA13OO—or even just its Kurt Cobain–inspired single–but Curry’s ability to fill Zack de la Rocha’s shoes is uncanny, and the unimposing insertion of his best verse from TA13OO is also a feat.
Check out the clip below, and take a deep dive into the cover series which also includes Miguel taking on RHCP, a Kendrick cover by CHVRCHES, and a very brave MGMT/Post Malone mashup by Superorganism.
