The 50 best albums of 2022
The Kerrang! verdict on the 50 albums that shaped 2022.
Ska punk heroes The Interrupters have taken on Billie Eilish's mega-hit Bad Guy.
There's been no shortage of rock stars declaring their love for Billie Eilish's music this year: from SWMRS taking on My Boy in the K! Pit to Bad Guy covered in the style of blink-182.
Now, ska punk heroes The Interrupters are next in line to show their appreciation for the 17-year-old pop sensation, also tackling mega-hit Bad Guy.
“We were covering Billie Eilish’s Bad Guy while on tour all summer,” says vocalist Aimee Interrupter. “When we had the chance to do this session at Ship-Rec Studios in Los Angeles we thought it would be the perfect song because it’s so fun to play live! We are big fans of Billie and Finneas’ songwriting… What a breath of fresh air for music! Here it is captured live in one take, we hope we did it justice.”

The Cover Story
When lockdown hit and bands were forced to face a new reality, Aimee Interrupter was confronted with an old one. Reckoning with the trauma of her past, The Interrupters’ vocalist faced her demons head-on after years of turning away, coming out the other side to create the most introspectively powerful album of their career. Trigger warning: Physical and emotional abuse.
Ska-punk heroes The Interrupters take on the world, and a troubled past, on triumphant fourth album In The Wild.
