JuiceheaD and Osaka Popstar Unnecessarily Cover “Waiting Room”

Count among the special releases for Record Store Day a cover of Fugazi's "Waiting Room" by Misfits Records artist JuiceheaD and Osaka Popstar (known properly as filmmaker and onetime Misfits collaborator John Cafiero).

From the press release: "'I reached out to Dischord (Fugazi’s label) about covering the song and eventually had the pleasure of speaking to Ian MacKaye personally about it,' says Cafiero.  'Conceptually, it was intimidating because talking to Ian MacKaye about covering Waiting Room is like walking on metaphorical hallowed ground. But he’s truly someone that lives up to his ethos.''"

Nice platitude, bro!

Even better: The 7-inch  is decked out in "exclusive" Shepard Fairey sleeve art.

So. Yeah. This is a thing that exists. Stream it here.
