Khemmis Guitarist/Vocalist Ben Hutcherson Releases Metal Cover Of The Offspring’s “Come Out And Play”


Khemmis guitarist/vocalist Ben Hutcherson has shared his metal cover of The Offspring‘s “Come Out And Play” below. It’s part of a series of covers Hutcherson has been releasing under the moniker of The Doctor Of Doom. That Patreon funded venture previously saw him release this take on Santana and Rob Thomas‘ “Smooth. Speaking of this latest cover, Hutcherson offered:

“”Nothing happens unless first we dream.” – Carl Sandburg

“Dreams are true while they last, and do we not live in dreams?” – Alfred Lord Tennyson

Do you remember your dreams? I do.

I once dreamt of a world. A different, better world. One wherein the Offspring‘s album ‘Smash‘ was written and recorded by members of Misery Index and Napalm Death. Wouldn’t you like to live in that world? I had a fleeting glimpse of it and it is glorious. You, too, can visit that reality (in three minute increments) thanks to my reimagined version of “Come out and Play” and the “music video” I willed into existence from the horrors of my mind.

Thanks to Chuck E. Cheese for scarring all of us who came of age in the 80s and 90s.

Like a Spreading Disease” is the second in an ongoing series of videos wherein I deconstruct pop/rock hits from yesteryear and rearrange them as extreme metal songs. Want to learn how to play this song? Want to know what I’m covering next? All of this and much more is available to supporters of my Patreon!”
