Cancer Bats Apologizes for Beastie Boys Cover
Canadian metalcore band the Cancer Bats, has issued a public apology for their recent cover of the classic Beastie Boys song, "Sabotage." The band has received much criticism from fans of the legendary rap group, as well as the majority of people in the world who have working ears, claiming that the cover was an "insult" to the Beastie Boys and one not to be taken as lightly as the video tried to convey.
"We sincerely apologize for any hurt feelings and eardrums we may have caused with this release," says a statement from the band, "It was our intention to pay tribute to a group we respected and loved, though in hindsight, perhaps some things are better left alone."
Beastie Boys rapper Ad Rock commented: "Whether you like the Beasties or not, there's no denying that we are original when it comes to our music and especially our videos. I thought that video the Bats did was really lame y'know? I know the whole point is that since they're covering us, they're gonna reference us as much as possible, but I tought it would have been much better if they'd had tried to pay tribute to us by doing their own take on what a Beastie Boys video should be, not just copying us."
