Come on lads! Surely with the rich diverse history in our wonderful genre of music you could have found something a little more suitable, eh?

You could have covered a Madness track like Baggy Trousers for flip's sake and it would have been better!

Yea, because bands, or in this case JUST Ol Drake, never make stupid joke covers right? -___-
Ol also did a cover of a song called "Chewbacca for Good."
Hell, if you're gonna put this up put that up as well.

Guys. Seriously the cover sounds alright but that besides the point. The fact they did a cover of this is their choice, obviously It would have been better had they covered something else I particularly like the idea of the baggy trousers cover, but this doesn't lower the quality of their other music at all. Look at the first two albums, they're f***ing awesome and there's no reason why this album shouldn't be the same. Give 'em a break.

I was excited to see what they'd do with this but disappointment. They shoudlve done it all original, meaning not using her vocals.

The headline of this article is completely misleading. Evile did not record this. Just as slayerdave above stated, this was done by Ol Drake, by himself, as a goof.

He's done other things like this before, so it's all in good fun and not to be taken seriously.

Agree with Captain metal
Ol loves this stuff - look at his youtube
plus, a Gaga youtube is in no way a "release"

Also, do you still have a pic of Evile from 6 years ago with Mike?

This isn't anything to do with Evile. It's Ol Drake. Dont people read properly?
Ol Drake does stuff like this all the time. He messes around with songs and posts them for a laugh. He has clearly stated numerous times it is NOTHING to do with Evile.
And yes, that photo you are using of Evile is pretty out of date.
RIP Mike.

This is terrible. However, don't let it sour your perception of the upcoming Evile album. It rips!
