The Band Perry Cover Queen’s ‘Fat Bottomed Girls’
The Band Perry‘s Kimberly, Reid and Neil have produced something quite unique with their cover of Queen‘s ‘Fat Bottomed Girls,‘ a song from the iconic rockers’ 1978 ‘Jazz‘ album. As part of Billboard‘s Mashup Mondays series, the trio truly transformed the song.
The Band Perry’s ultra-countrified take on the tune gently weaves the delectable harmonies of the three siblings and the strumming of the strings — a minimalist take on the anthemic rock ditty that somehow makes the naughty song much more subtle. Leave it to the golden-locked sweetheart and her gentlemen brothers to make the playful hit about a precocious lad on the hunt for fanny-licious women sound almost … innocent?
The country sensations, up for four trophies at next week’s CMA Awards, are not far removed from the rock genre. “The very first song I learned to play on the electric guitar was ‘Back in Black‘ by AC/DC,” Kimberly told us.
