As artists self-quarantine to help slow the spread of the coronavirus, they're finding creative ways to use their downtime and connect with fans from writing collective poems to sharing "ridiculous" stories to livestreaming home concerts. Machine Gun Kelly has been using his time in isolation to release cover videos in a series called #LockDownSessions. For his latest installment, the rapper was (virtually) joined by Travis Barker, as well as bassist Truck Norris and frequent collaborator Omer Fedi, for a rendition of Paramore's "Misery Business." The video is MGK's 11th since self-isolating. He's also covered Nirvana's "Smells Like Teen Spirit" and The Beatles' "Here Comes The Sun."
Earlier this year, MGK revealed he was working on a pop-punk album called Tickets to My Downfall with the blink-182 drummer. This isn't the only project the two have worked on together. Last year they released a song called "I Think I'm Okay" with YUNGBLUD.
Listen to MGK's cover of "Misery Business" below.
