Rock band Mayonnaise and actress Yam Concepcion is treating fans with a cover of a Foo Fighters hit during the pandemic-induced quarantine.
Their collaboration for “Big Me” was uploaded yesterday, May 28, on the official YouTube channel of Mayonnaise, which constantly posts song covers under its “#TBT” series.
“For this episode, ang kasama namin ay ang kaibigan namin na kaka-birthday lang na hindi lang artista kundi isa ring drummer mula sa bandang Ursaminor na si Yam Concepcion,” Mayonnaise said.
(For this episode, we are joined by our friend, who recently celebrated her birthday and is not only an actress but also a drummer for the band Ursaminor, Yam Concepcion.)
Concepcion worked the drum set, while the vocals, guitar and bass parts were performed by Mayonnaise frontman Monty Macalino.
“Naisipan namin na ito ang tugtugin dahil isa sa mga paborito naming banda ang Foo Fighters,” the band said. “Isa pang trivia, ito ang unang kantang tinugtog namin nung 1996 nung tumugtog kami sa Freshmen-Senior [high school] Dance namin.”
(We decided to play this because one of our favorite bands is Foo Fighters. Another trivia, this is the first song we ever played back in 1996 during our Freshmen-Senior High school dance.)
Concepcion has been regularly posting drum covers on social media. Prior to her cover with Mayonnaise, she posted on May 14 a collab of Nirvana’s “Drain You” with famous 10-year-old Japanese drummer Yoyoka Soma.
Concepcion, who just turned 32 last Wednesday, May 27, marked her birthday by launching her official YouTube channel.
Mayonnaise, meanwhile, earlier this month covered Eminem’s “Stan” with Pinoy hip-hop legend Gloc-9 (real name: Aristotle Pollisco) under #TBT. /ra
