Luicidal Updates Suicidal Tendencies’ ‘Institutionalized’ With Epic Spanish-Language Version (billboard.com)Via: billboard.com
It’s Ceci Bastida’s turn to rant on this new version of the punk classic.
Suicidal Tendencies’ punk anthem “Institutionalized,” a now-classic rant against parental control and institutional oppression, became known from the Repo Man soundtrack and for its chorus of “all I wanted was a Pepsi.”
“It’s not every day you write a song that stands the test of time, some people say epic, and when I wrote the music I wouldn’t imagine that 35 years later people would still be singing it and of course when I play the first three notes fans already know what’s next,” says former Suicidal Tendencies bassist Louiche Mayorga, who wrote the song with Mike Muir in 1982.
With his current band, Luicidal, Mayorga has recorded a Spanish-language version of the song titled”Institucionalizado,” premiering exclusively on Billboard today (Sept. 20). This time, Ceci Bastida is doing the ranting (and she’s asking fo a “coca” instead of a Pepsi.)
