99 Metal Musicians Join Forces to Cover ’99 Bottles of Beer’

Members of Pantera, Slayer and Mastodon took part in recording, which benefits a dog charity

If 99 metal musicians teamed up to sing “99 Bottles of Beer,” you’d think it was a joke, right? Well, it’s 2020, so nothing is not insane, and that’s exactly what happened.

The project was put together by Scour’s Derek Engemann and Nest’s John Jarvis. All proceeds from the song will benefit the Old Dog Haven, a charity that helps old dogs find homes. Assembling the track literally took years.

“This has been an epically fun project involving the entire Metal scene, and even a few Ska bands! This project originally began back in 2013, but was brought back to life once we discovered Old Dog Haven,” Engemann said on a GoFundMe page for the charity. “The ’99 Bottles’ has truly shown the good side of humanity during these wild times that we are in. I was amazed at all of the people who were eager to sign up for a verse. Winston, Clementine, Tasha, and The Boozehoundz thank everyone involved, and thank you to everyone who takes the time to give this insane track a spin!”

Participants include members of Pantera, Slayer, Mastodon, Trivium, Butcher Babies, Dillinger Escape Plan, Sepultura, Type O Negative and more.
