Blestenation Release Video Mash-Up of Suicidal Tendencies 'Institutionalized'
For Immediate Release
New York hip-hop trio Blestenation has released the video for their mash-up of the Suicidal Tendencies classic "Institutionalized" online at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CkGDMVOn4GU. Blestenation will release their debut album, "MBugout City", on April 13th, 2010 through Suburban Noize Records.
"I have been a fan of Suicidal Tendencies since I was a little kid," says Werdplay from Blestenation. "I wasn't able to be a part of the scene at the time, because I was a bit young, so this is kind of like my tribute to them. I actually did get to see Suicidal live for the first time when they played with Madball at Irving Plaza in early 2009 and they were insane. Those guys still put on one hell of a show after all these years."
"I got the idea for the video from watching a skit on the Leno show one night where he had the scene from the end of Scarface, but he put Dr. Phil's face on Tony Montana," added FAFU. "The original is an epic song and we re-vamped it with Nate Albert on guitar. I always loved the difference between the mellow verse of the song and how loud and crazy the chorus was. We did our best to recreate that in a hip hop style."
