GLENN FRICKER Announces “Oldies But Baddies” Cover Contest, Prizes Include REVV AMPS and TWO NOTES Pedals


Metal has the power to improve just about anything it touches. Metal covers of pop songs are all the rage these days, and for good reason – they’re awesome. Hearing a familiar song with a heavy twist will always level it up.

Glenn Fricker of Spectre Media Group is nearing 200,000 subscribers on his YouTube channel, and to help him reach that goal, he’s announced a pretty huge contest – the Oldies but Baddies cover contest. It’s a fun tribute to the shittiest songs of the 60s, 70s, and 80s – find the worst one you can and cover it in a metal style for a chance to win one of the big prizes. The grand prizes are a Pure Perception audio production PC and a Revv Amplification Generator 120 MKI 4 channel amp, while runners up receive Two Notes Engineering Le Preamp pedals (like the one I reviewed).

So brush up on your Captain and Tennille or Air Supply and give it a metal update, and you could wind up winning big!

I studied music on both coasts (Berklee and SSU) and now I'm just trying to put my degree to some use. That's a music degree, not an English one. I'm sure you noticed.
