Malaysian band covers “Suicide Squad” song
Though the film “Suicide Squad” has garnered mixed reviews, that didn’t stop Malaysian pop band Paperplane Pursuit from covering the theme song by Twenty One Pilots, “Heathens”, which had reached No. 1 on Billboard US Hot Rock Songs.
“#SuicideSquad… Love it or hate it, we thought the soundtrack was awesome! So we couldn't help ourselves doing this cover over the weekend,” read the band’s Facebook post.
The simple video features lead singer John O made up as Joker, and the rest of the band jamming away to “Heathens” in a dark room that’s dimly lit.
When a fan asked why the other members didn’t dress up as the Suicide Squad members as well, Paperplane Pursuit responded, “We couldn't all be the Joker.”
The cover is quite good and hilarious too, especially the part when the flickering lights sound effects were replaced with frog sounds.
