Body Count Releases Video For Institutionalized Cover

BODY-COUNT-MANSLAUGHTER-1425

 

Body Count, led by legendary hip-hop figure and television personality Ice-T has released the video for their cover of the Suicidal Tendencies classic cut ‘Institutionalized’. See the video below:

 

Ice-T’s unique re-imagining of the famous spastic lyrics to the song were an instant hit with critics and fans alike. In aninterview with Ghost Cult last summer, Long time BC band member Ernie C commented on the remake:

It’s a rant-. It’s bringing it contemporary. It’s the same rant that Mike [Muir] had 25 years ago about his parents, but we’re bringing it up to now. It’s a lot of fun.

We had to get clearance to do that song. So we started calling around. We thought Mike had it. Mike didn’t own it. This guy named Glen Friedman owns the rights to the song. That’s Ice’s photographer from back in the day. We didn’t know who owned the song. So he gave us the rights to do it but he said…he’s a vegan so “you’re coming down hard on the vegans!”

The song comes off of Manslaughter, released last year on Sumerian Records. To support the album Body Count toured extensively on The Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival. In 2015 the band is booking many European Festivals, such as Hellfest and Coppenhell.
