Mastodon‘s catalog is extremely diverse and can easily appeal to a wide range of music fans. In an interview with Loudwire Nights, Mastodon drummer and vocalist Brann Dailor discussed some of the songs that should get fans of different musical genres into the band. The one choice that stood out (or at least made us laugh) was saying that “Show Yourself” would be the song that could get fans of the Backstreet Boys into Mastodon. So if you know any boy band fans out there, show ’em “Show Yourself” and see how it goes!
“That’s kinda tough because I need to know the person’s… there’s circumstances involved here — what are you into? If they say Deicide, then I’m gonna say ‘March of the Fire Ants.’ If they say they’re into the Backstreet Boys, I’d say, ‘Show Yourself.’ If they say they’re into Metallica, I’d say almost any of our songs. Maybe listen to ‘Eyes of Serpents’ or something off of [Hushed And Grim] or ‘Tear Drinker.'”
Mastodon is currently out on tour with Ghost and Spiritbox. You can check out those dates below. In the meantime, you can check out their brand new 90-minute documentary on the making of 2021’s Hushed And Grim here.
