With isolation and quarantine taking place around the world people are getting creative and hosting live-stream events. During the #FearlessAtHome event yesterday the horror-themed theatercore group Ice Nine Kills celebrated the 40th anniversary of the genre classic Friday the 13th with the debut of their song “Jason’s Mom“, a parody of “Stacey’s Mom”, just in time to celebrate one of the deadliest moms on film for Mother’s Day. The band dedicated the performance to Adam Schlesinger who wrote the song “Stacey’s Mom.”
Today marks the 40th anniversary of Friday The 13th and with tomorrow being Mother’s Day, we thought this acoustic cover would be the perfect way to celebrate. We want to dedicate this to the memory of the inspirational songwriter Adam Schlesinger, who co-wrote this amazing and enduring pop song for Fountains Of Wayne.We hope all the Moms out there have a truly killer Mother’s Day. “
Ice Nine Kills also paid homage to Friday The 13th with this month’s Nightmare On The Ninth merch drop. The ‘Mommy Knows Best’ collection celebrates Forty Years of Friday and is available for a limited time from NightmareOnTheNinth.com The movie was also the inspiration for their track “Thank God It’s Friday”. Taken from their 2018 opus, “The Silver Scream”, the track has clocked up 2 million YouTube views and 9.6 million streams on Spotify since it’s release.
Ice Nine Kills summon the most captivating elements of metal, punk, and hard rock and combines it with melody, cinematic obsession, and a literary fascination.
