Ice Nine Kills brought some serious love for Friday the 13th for Mother’s Day with a cover of the song “Stacy’s Mom”that will have you tapping your toes and singing along!
The song was unveiled as horror fans across the country celebrated the 40th anniversary of the classic slasher that introduced us to Pamela and Jason Voorhees and the doomed counselors of Camp Crystal Lake.
Riffing on the lyrics of the original song by Fountains of Wayne, Ice Nine Kills front man, Spencer Charnas, sings”
“Jason’s Mom has got it goin’ on
With a body count that rivals her son’s
Jason can’t you see the love behind her killing spree?
Whether her head’s off or on
I’m in love with Jason’s Mom”
The band even included a shout-out to Mrs. Bates from Psycho in their final verse.
“Today marks the 40th anniversary of Friday The 13th and with tomorrow being Mother’s Day, we thought this acoustic cover would be the perfect way to celebrate,” Charnas was quoted on Kerrang. “We want to dedicate this to the memory of the inspirational songwriter Adam Schlesinger, who co-wrote this amazing and enduring pop song for Fountains Of Wayne. We hope all the Moms out there have a truly killer Mother’s Day.”
Schelsinger unfortunately died on April 1, 2020 due to complications from Covid-19. He was 52 years old.
