Cool Ass – Fuck You Covid-19

marc

Fuck You Covid-19 is a new single from artist “Cool Ass” (real name Marc Marut). Out of all the recent COVID-19 related jams I’ve reviewed (and there have been many), I have to say that this one is the best so far. Given the title, one might suspect that it’s a joke song that was just thrown together, but it actually really rocks. Featuring robust guitars, clever lyrics and a rich, invigorating sound, the track is an instant contemporary classic. My favorite parts of the song are the synth interludes, which sound like something out of a Leisure Suit Larry soundtrack. The lyrics humorously incorporate COVID related motifs (washing hands, wearing masks, don’t touch your face, etc) and lament the inability to go out and do things with friend. It’s a fun song obviously but with an underlying message that’s intended to lift people’s spirits in a rather dreary time. Musically, the sound reminds me of 90′s alternative pop/rock bands like Cake. This artist really has a lot of talent. The video for this song compiles participatory footage that people submitted for it, all of whose contributions managed to add something to the ambiance. Seriously, this song is damn good.
