Mashup mastermind Anthony Vincent recently teamed up with Todd Barriage to make Gorillaz’s 2005 track “Feel Good Inc.” into an absolute nü-metal banger. It is specifically done as a Limp Bizkit-styled track.
The viral metal impressionist — who’s covered Katy Perry’s “Dark Horse” in the style of Type O Negative and Sam Smith’s “Unholy” in the style of Ghost — has now flipped the animated band’s 2005 hit Fred Durst-style, and the result is pretty damn fun.
Gorillaz’s original featured hip-hop icons De La Soul, who brought their chill vibe to the sing-along track. Vincent’s Bizkit makeover — which features additional vocals by fellow YouTuber Todd Barriage — is anything but chill, packed instead with all the braggadocios, the hyper-caffeinated fury of Durst, Wes Borland and Co. at their stuff-breaking best.
In the past, Gorillaz have collaborated with the likes of Shaun Ryder, Grace Jones, Bobby Womack, De La Soul, Lou Reed, and many more. However, when Albarn was asked about his dream collaborator, he had only one artist in mind. Gorillaz have also performed tracks from the record for their set at Coachella last weekend, which also featured collaborations with Slowthai and Thundercat.
Meanwhile, Beck recently teamed up with Gorillaz on Jimmy Kimmel Live last month. The singer-songwriter joined Damon Albarn for a rendition of their ‘Cracker Island’ collaboration ‘Possession Island’. They performed the track for the first time at a gig at Los Angeles’ Forum last September. Beck also previously appeared on ‘The Valley Of The Pagans’ on Gorillaz’s 2020 album ‘Song Machine: Season One – Strange Timez’.
