Upon A Burning Body Release “Turn Down For What” Video Featuring Ice-T


Upon A Burning Body and Ice-T have worked with the fine folks at Spencer’s to deliver a video for their cover of Lil Jon’s “Turn Down For What.”

Released in the hours before Punk Goes Pop Vol. 6 hits digital retailers, the official video for what can best be described as the metal version of “Turn Down For What” is chock full of strippers, booze, and attitude. Ice-T, Cocoa, and the members of Upon A Burning Body took over a Detroit area night club to shoot the clip, and though it’s fairly generic the visuals are cut together nicely. You can view the video below:


I enjoy this cover a lot more than I expected to, but I think a lot of that is due to the appearance of Ice-T rather than the way Upon A Burning Body transform Lil Jon’s latest club favorite. T is a rare breed of talent that is almost impossible to find in music today, and here he sheds just enough of his tough guy image to have a bit of fun with one of the scene’s rowdiest bands.

Punk Goes Pop Vol. 6 hits stores this week. In our official review, editor James Shotwell wrote:

Two years have passed since Fearless Records shared Punk Goes Pop Vol. 5, and in that time the world of top 40 music has undergone quite a transformation. There is less music created by actual instruments at radio today than ever before, replaced at a startling rate by EDM headliners and star-studded collaborative efforts that revolve around mindless hooks backed by thumping bass. Transforming these tracks into well-executed covers performed by artists using guitars is no easy task, but Fearless found thirteen artists up to the challenge and worked with them to create the diverse and incredibly entertaining Punk Goes Pop Vol. 6.
