Rare Death Metal Version Of "Karma Chameleon" From Culture Club Released

Back in 1983, the boy wonder Boy George and Culture Club released the Top 10 Hit "Karma Chameleon," which appeared on the "Colour By Numbers" album. To this day, it was the band's biggest hit and the pop sensation's only single to go #1 on the Billboard Top 100.

Little did anyone know that there existed an alternative death metal version. Little is known about this version of the song, but since it pre-dated Possessed's 1984 "Death Metal" demo (arguably the originators of death metal), then could Culture Club have actually invented death metal?

Actually, this version was created by the very talented Andy Rehfeldt who has been turning stuff on its ear for a long time now. This is just the latest in a series of classics (follow his YouTube Channel). Check it out here:

When the riff started, and he first came into view, with that little dance, I laughed heartily out loud.

I hate BG but at the same time I have a soft spot for the old queen just cause he scared the living hell out of everyone back then.
