Watch: Sock Puppet Parody Add Socks and Humor to Pantera’s ‘Walk’
Sock Puppet Parody has taken aim at some of the most legendary rock and metal bands. They’ve tackled Slipknot, Metallica, Drowning Pool and others in their pun-filled musical covers. The group turned Drowning Pool’s hit song “Bodies” into a track called “Laundry,” they then told you how to do your laundry in their take on Slipknot’s “Wait and Bleed”, which they called “Wait and Bleach.”
In their newest video, Sock Puppet Parody draw inspiration from Pantera’s song “Walk,” changing the lyrics to tell a tale of woe about socks that keep sliding off the wearer’s feet. You can check out the video above in which the sock band “Hamptera” performs in front of a bunch feet-banging puppets. There is even a celebrity cameo (spoiler alert: it’s Vinnie Paul!)
Sock puppets aren’t the only ones who’ll get to enjoy their piece of Pantera in the future. Pantera's song “Cowboys From Hell” is included as part of the bonus content for the new video game Rock Band 4. The game is now available for pre-order on PlayStation and PlayStation Plus members who buy the pre-order will receive 10 additional songs for the game, including the Pantera track, plus music from All That Remains, Bring Me the Horizon, Of Mice & Men and more.
The Pantera "Walk" cover is the 14th track and video from the Sock Puppet Parody. They've been creating comical music covers on their YouTube channel for about a year now. You can head here to see all their tracks, which also include songs from Radiohead, Rage Against the Machine and Static X.
