One of Revolver readers’ favorite bands returns with two cover songs specifically recorded for the action movie Guns Akimbo, starring Daniel Radcliffe. Tool-approved industrial-metal powerhouses 3TEETH take on their interpretation of two classic, but very different songs: Dead Or Alive’s “You Spin Me Round” and Sweet’s “Ballroom Blitz.”
“I was approaching the end of Guns Akimbo post production, and had a big problem. None of the music cues for a particular action scene were working,” says director Jason Howden. “I decided to reach out to one of my favorite bands, 3TEETH. I had been thrashing their latest album Metawar, which is pretty much the official soundtrack to the apocalyptic hellscape we call modern society.”
Frontman Alexis Mincolla adds, “I thought his last film Deathgasm was super fun and when he told me the plot and showed me some scenes for Guns Akimbo I was immediately interested.”
“3TEETH blew everyone away with a crushing take on the ’80s glam-pop hit that both surpasses and subverts it,” concludes Howden.
