Post Malone Covers ‘Santeria’ Live
One of America's favorite tattoo-faced guys has covered a classic '90's tune that any 'Back In the Day Cafe' lover would appreciate
A video was posted to YouTube on October 1st by kaShowBiz that shows Texas rapper/singer covering Sublime's "Santeria", a classic '90's tune that has all the ska/reggae beats, easy going vibe and substantive lyrics that embodies the soul of the alternative rock of that era.
Post Malone is covering the tune during a show (perhaps in a Dallas casino?) with a full band behind him, including a horns section. The comments below the video show a lot of love for the cover and share a consensus that Post did a pretty decent job with this tricky-noted song. There's also a lot of requests for a studio version.
Here's the original, just in case you need a refresher on one of the greatest songs of the 1990's:
Here's another performance posted by the same account on Tuesday which Post Malone plays the guitar (didn't know he could play?) and back-up sings with the band Rome. WARNING NSFW (potty mouth):
Can't get enough of Post Malone covers? Here's a compilation posted by Viral Twitch on YouTube, which includes Green Day, Nirvana and Bob Dylan covers. AND, look at his guitar skills! What?!
