Mr. Bungle share live cover of “Loss of Control” by Van Halen

Mr. Bungle – consisting of Trevor Dunn, Mike Patton, and Trey Spruance, along with Scott Ian (Anthrax, S.O.D.) and Dave Lombardo (Dead Cross, Slayer, Suicidal Tendencies) – have released a live cover of the Van Halen classic “Loss of Control” — check out the clip below.

The song/video comes off the band’s ‘The Night They Came Home’ effort (a.k.a. their Halloween 2020 streaming special), which drops on June 11th through Ipecac Recordings (pre-order).

Mr. Bungle tried to play this song in the ’90s and we scrapped it because we sucked at it,” explains Spruance. “I think it worked this time for a lot of reasons. My own is that, thanks to the new Raging Wrath era, I’ve had to re-approach the guitar like I did when I was 13 and 14. It was all about Eddie Van Halen for me back then, so circling back at this moment felt really natural. Those riffs and lead parts at least are super fun! I’m just glad Scott took the palm-mute breaks. Jesus!

Ian adds, “I generally don’t get nervous about learning someone else’s riffs. When it’s an EVH riff it’s a whole different story! I was terrified! With ‘Loss of Control’ I did my best to just hold on and go for the ride. What a riff!!! As a fan I’d have to say it’s a PERFECT SONG for Mr. Bungle to cover. I hope you enjoy listening as much as I did getting to play it.

“The Night They Came Home,” which was directed by Jack Bennett, is available as a CD + Blu-Ray, CD + DVD, VHS, and digitally,” says a presser. “The CD portion features remastered audio, while the film features Bungle’s performance, Neil Hamburger’s opening set, three official music videos (“Raping Your Mind,” “Eracist,” and “Sudden Death”), as well as extended behind-the-scenes footage. The VHS release, limited to 1000 collectible copies, is an edited, performance-only portion of the film.
