Random Ass Covers Part II: Fear- “We Gotta Get Out Of This Place”

I am a big fan of both Fear and The Animals, and brother let me make it clear up front that no one can touch The Animals’ original version of “We Gotta Get Out Of This Place.” With that being said, Fear’s cover is equally fascinating, even if inferior. For those that haven’t heard Fear’s legendary 1982 LP The Record, do it! Fear’s cover is so unique that I didn’t even realize it was The Animals until years later! Silly bastard. The band creates their own, off kilter take on a classic song and truly tears apart everything a more conventional music fan would love about it. It’s not the most enjoyable listen, but I adore it’s odd as a cod quality. I’d like to see more bands like Fear today!
