It’s been a little over a year since Gal Gadot cursed us with his starry and deeply squeaky cover of John Lennon’s “Imagine”. You’d think the backlash from this video would have made celebrities think twice before making more cheesy music related to the COVID-19 pandemic, but Mick Jagger and Dave Grohl (they are apparently friends) have collaborated on one song, “Eazy Sleazy,” about how hard it was to stay in quarantine – not to mention the fact that they’re both super rich guys who managed to stay healthy throughout the affair.

“Eazy Sleazy” sounds like a fake Rolling Stones track; it all looks like a SNL parody of a song by the Stones that had to be cut for the time. But hey, at least they’re having fun.

“It’s a song I wrote about coming out of the lockout, with some well-deserved optimism. Thanks to Dave Grohl for hopping on drums, bass and guitar, it was great fun working with him, ”Jagger said in a statement. “It’s hard to put into words what it means to me to record this song with Sir Mick,” adds Grohl. “It’s beyond a dream come true. Just when I thought life couldn’t get crazier… and this is the song of the summer, without a doubt !! ” [Like the song’s rhythm section, the punctuation is all Grohl.—Ed.]

You can tell the lyrics are ironic, but unfortunately these are real words Mick Jagger sings about the pandemic:

  • “Cancel all tours / Fake football applause”
  • “No more travel brochures / virtual premieres, I have nothing more to wear”
  • “Looking from those prison walls / You have to steal Peter if you pay Paul”
  • “It’s a pretty mask / But never take a risk / Stupid TikTok dance / I took a samba class”
  • “I landed on my ass / I’m trying to write a song / You better hang on to Zoom”
  • “Too much TV / It lobotomizes me”
  • “We will escape from these prison walls / Open the windows and open the doors”
  • “Shoot the vaccine / Bill Gates is in my bloodstream / It’s mind control / The earth is flat and cold”
G / O Media can get a commission

Okay, so the latter is obviously facetious, but that’s enough. We’re near the finish line, guys! Please spare us further embarrassment.
