Bleached covers The Ramones

Bleached, who released Welcome the Worms earlier this year, has issued a new release to raise funds for Planned Parenthood: digital covers of "Bonzo Goes to Bitburg" (The Ramones) and "Eve of Destruction" (Barry McGuire).


The band's Jennifer Clavin explains the project:

After the election, I went to the desert with an overwhelming feeling of hopelessness, sadness, and anger. I decided to record covers of 2 songs that perfectly capture my feelings regarding our political state. ‘Eve of Destruction’ was written in 1965, and 50 years later could not be more relevant. It’s a warning of the fascist, racist, violent and unjust world we were living in then, and are living in now. ‘Bonzo Goes To Bitburg’ shares the embarrassed, offended, and disgusted feeling a lot of us have every time we see Trump on our television. We are living in a time where we can anticipate federal funding to public health resources terminated. I have been using Planned Parenthood’s services for 10 years. And hope to continue to. It is on us to ensure their services continue through public funding and donation. All the proceeds of this digital 7” will go towards Planned Parenthood, for a future of accessible pap smears, breast and cervical cancer screening, pregnancy testing, pregnancy option counseling, STD screening, colposcopies, birth control, sex education, LGBT services, and other necessary health services. FUCK TRUMP. FUCK PENCE. LONG LIVE RUTH BADER GINSBERG.
