BEETLE'S SONG GETS STAIND

BEETLE'S SONG GETS STAIND

Today was a big day because Staind was set to perform their rendition of “The Beetlejuice Song”. Before the band entered the studio, Beet came in wearing leather riding chaps with no underwear. Gary pointed out that, given Richard’s recent bouts of in-studio nudity, the two seemed to be hung about the same. Howard talked about the history of “The Beetlejuice Song” and how excited he was to hear it. Last winter, members of the whack-pack got together to sing “We Are the Whack-Pack,” an inspirational tune sung to the melody of “We Are the World.” During the sessions, Beet was asked if he could write his own song. Right on the spot, Beet ripped off the lyrics that, when placed to music, became “The Beetlejuice Song.” Howard then called Staind and asked they would do their own rendition of the song.
Lead singer Aaron Lewis said the group had two versions of “The Beetlejuice Song,” but they only had time to rehearse the acoustic one. After the band played it, Howard was amazed at how good it sounded. He said he could imagine people actually listening to the song because it was so good. Artie said it was top-notch turd polishing. Aaron said it took the group only 10 minutes to write the music, and that this was just the third time they had played the song. Howard said he sometimes reads about musicians who write masterpieces in short periods of time because the inspiration comes quickly. Staind then performed its current single, “Right Here”, off the album, “Chapter Five”. Robin loved this song as well, and wondered what it meant. Aaron said it was a love song about always being there for the person you love. Howard thought the song was actually about how Aaron felt about his move to satellite.
