American Jesus cover by Irreverend James

This Thursday (June 14)  Bad Religion will be playing the NXNE Festival in Toronto. Apparently the Canadian Bad Religion fans aren't the only ones who are excited to see the band playing; the godless gospel band "Irreverend James and the Critical Mass Choir" can't wait either.

The band from Montreal are also playing the NXNE Festival two days after Bad Religion. When they found out that Bad Religion was going to play the same festival, they decided to cover a song during the recording of their upcoming EP: 



"We started wondering what a punk anthem might sound like if it were done gospel. And what better song to cover than American Jesus? It lays out a message that deserves to be belted. So we did. [...] We’d love nothing more than for this to make it to the band’s ears. They were on the front line before it was fashionable. They are giants."



This is their take on American Jesus:


 





Extra tidbit: This is not the first 'unusual' Bad Religion cover...remember this one?

perhaps it is time for all of us to put aside the nra bravado or the hand-wringing political expectations for someone else to fix it

and come to terms with the FACT that there will always be misguided individuals who will find ways to cause harm to innocent people globally
