Iggy Pop & Bethany Cosentino "Let's Boot and Rally"
Published Jul 05, 2012Late last month, we learned that Iggy Pop was teaming up with Best Coast's Bethany Cosentino for a True Blood exclusive called "Let's Boot and Rally." Though the song shows up on the program's upcoming July 8 broadcast, you can stream the number now.
Despite being prepped for the vampire drama, the cut plays a little toothless, jiving on a rote surf rock riff. Pop moans like a crypt keeper about crashing cars on the self-described "sewer song," while California popster Cosentino jumps in mid-song with a lifeless melody line.
Pop had previously delivered the self-fulfilling prophecy: "I guess this makes me a singing vampire, does this mean I have a license to suck?"
Via Los Angeles radio station KCRW, you can stream the song below.
