Watch Ryan Adams Cover Danzig’s “Mother”

After a string of pretty epic metal covers—Iron Maiden’s “Wasted Years,” Ratt’s “Round and Round” and Dio’s “Holy Diver”—Ryan Adams has graced fans with another acoustic goodie. Most recently, the genre-less singer/songwriter has been playing a stripped-down version of Danzig’s “Mother” during encores of shows on his current European tour.

At this rate, we kind of think Adams should take a hint from the Mountain Goats’ John Darnielle, who’s playing a solo-acoustic heavy metal covers set at Hopscotch Festival this September. Check out the fan-recorded audio of “Mother” below.
