Rival Schools – “69 Gunz” (Ad-Rock Remix)

Adam “Ad-Rock” Horovitz of the Beastie Boys has remixed Rival Schools’ “69 Guns.” You can listen to the remix, which has been entitled “69 Gunz,” below. The original song comes from Rival Schools’ latest album, ‘Pedals.’

In regards to the remix, Rival Schools drummer Sam Siegler told Spin, “I was looking for a different interpretation of the song and we got it. All he had was a vocal a cappella and the tempo, so he basically wrote a new song. [We’re] very thankful — it’s definitely new ground for us, but it was a fun experiment.”

The band will be heading out on tour in late May, and have confirmed that they will be playing this year’s Lollapalooza (August 5-7).
