Foo FightersDave Grohl has teamed up with Anthrax members Charlie Benante and Scott Ian for a cover of the Bad Brains song “The Regulator.”

The single was released on Record Store Day, April 20th, as a vinyl release. The seven-inch single, limited to 6,000 copies, comes complete with cover art by Benante.

Upon the initial announcement of the single, Ian revealed the story behind the collaboration, saying, “Anthrax were recording our new album at [Grohl’s] 606 [studio] and the Foo’s were there rehearsing at the same time. Dave had popped into the studio to hang and listen to what we were doing and we’d gone over to hear the Foo’s rehearse. I texted Dave the next morning and said: ‘Hey! Good to see ya the other day. Are you rehearsing today? I’ll be there doing guitars. Wanna record a Minor Threat song? Bad Brains?’ He replied immediately with the Spotify link for ‘The Regulator.’ I said I’d be there at 12:30pm and he said, ‘See you at 1.’ It was that simple.”

He continued, “We recorded at 606. Charlie and I asked Dave if he’d play drums and sing as well, he was in. Charlie plays bass and I’m on guitar. Charlie did the badass art for the cover. GBI!”

Proceeds from the single benefit legendary Bad Brains singer H.R., who is suffering from SUNCT Syndrome, which causes cycles of intense headaches that make it impossible for him to perform.
