Ice-T Explains Why Body Count Redid Suicidal Tendencies Classic
Body Count covered Suicidal Tendencies classic Institutionalized on their 2014 album Manslaughter, with Ice T personalizing the song's ranting verses.
He tells TeamRock Radio, "We did Institutionalized to pay homage to Suicidal because they were the first band out of the west coast rocking the Dickies, the bandanas and having that west coast look. When we first came out, most of our fans were Suicidal fans. They migrated to our shows. So we did their song and we were happy that they liked it. Nothing but respect for Suicidal.
"I liked the record because it was more of a rant than a song. With a lot of punk rock back in the day, you always tried to get some kind of point across. Michael was kind of just saying, 'I'm just going through it as a kid. Mom is telling me I'm on drugs, all I want is a Pepsi.'" Read more here.
