Watch Teenage Time Killers Cover Black Flag + the Misfits During Their Live Debut in L.A.
Back in July, Teenage Time Killers -- a supergroup of nearly 30 heavy metal and punk heroes -- dropped their debut album, Greatest Hits, Vol. 1. Last night (Sept. 12), an impressive number of the outfit’s contributors packed the stage at L.A.’s Fonda Theatre to bring the new album and a series of classic covers to life.
While some of Teenage Time Killers' collaborators, like Dave Grohl for example, weren't able to make the band's live debut, previously, TTK leader and Corrosion of Conformity drummer Reed Mullin said he hoped to assemble at least two-thirds of the collective for a live gig. And as Rolling Stone reports, last night's set featured appearances by Mullin, Lamb of God's Randy Blythe, Slipknot’s Corey Taylor, My Ruin’s Mick and Tairrie B. Murphy, Articles of Faith’s Vic Bondi, Clutch’s Neil Fallon, Scream’s Pete Stahl and more.
Spanning almost three hours, the concert saw the collective performing cuts from the massive, 24-track Greatest Hits, as well as covers of the Misfits, Bad Brains, the Stooges, Mudhoney and Black Flag -- among others.
Taylor led a set-closing performance of Teenage Time Killers’ "Egobomb," which bled into covers of the Weirdos, Black Flag’s “Rise Above” and the Misfits’ “Where Eagles Dare.” You can see fan-shot clips of the latter two songs at the bottom of the page.
Last night’s show in L.A. is the one and only concert Teenage Time Killers have on the books so far.
